    Does anyone still come here?

    Just a small thing. Can we remove "2012" from the members list. The first thing I noticed when I looked was we're living in the past :)

    I take it consoles have fallen by the wayside in tog? You do know we are better looking than our PC brothers and sisters. Keep this in mind the next time you debate with them :)

    Mmmmmm, just realised the red and greens can see this, ET, as you're a green (and congratulations btw), can you fix it for me to not let any PC peeps in here.

    As you can tell, I've been drinking raki. Jeez is strong.

    Speak soon about the ps4, xbox one & the steam box,


    Cheers

    George

    Hi George and welcome back by the way.

    I never really understood why we used to run separate years with the member list. Once you have a PSN ID, XBL Tag or Wii Code it's usually for life. I would prefer to see a single list created and updated as needed for any changes. As you can see from the current list not many signed up to it in 2012 and no one was bothered to create a new one in 2013. It gives the wrong impression that the division is not very active. Might be true but then might be deceptive as well. From a public view point if I saw a list of 15 names from 2012 I would assume the worst.

    If people are in agreeance I think we should just merge the data and create a single list. Can't be too hard to achieve.

    I come in from time to time to try and keep things ticking over but have noticed since yourself and Pure Mongrel moving on that the interest in the division has waned. The Captain even announcing he was not going to be available due to RL commitments.

    A call for change of Captain was announced and I did ask about it but it went no where. In the end I got a new PC and was drawn into GW2, the others scattered to all corners of the PC world.

    Not sure what the future holds for the console division. Sad really.

    I would have thought with the new consoles coming onto the market this division should get more exposer. However, we are a small console cog in a large PC forum.

    We have to remember A_O, the most viewed thread in the whole of this forum was regarding red dead redemption, here in the console forum, (or was it the most external views??? can't remember).

    We'll get there mate :)

    the "please start here" thread is looking a tad outdated as well. if you don't mind A_O i'll ask Ulric for some mod rights so i can help tidy it up. Just for a week or 2.

    "me too"
    A1 you're quite right, I announced you as successor to the CC throne months and months ago with a request the appropriate changes to title be made, but it apparently either fell on deaf ears or some modicum of slackness came into play :/
    George, more'n happy for you to have a cleanup. You wanna wear A1's DC hat? It's still on the hatstand in the corner where I left it...

    I'm more than happy for others to don the DC cap. If you wish to retain, that fine as well. Only put my hand up as you were busy mate. If they feel they can find someone more qualified, then I am more then happy. Given my time playing GW2 it wouldn't be fare to wear said hat I'm thinking.

    George what you might have missed is few of the Squad Leaders have moved on to other pastures. Some wear 2 hats splitting their time between PC games and console. Others have left all together.

    I guess this is the nature of console gaming. Hard to tie people down.

    I've asked for temporary mod rights in the forum, Ulric is dealing with it. I'll give him another nudge.

    If you are stepping cadder, A_O's the man for me for sure. I just wanted to tidy a few threads up really. My OCD kicked in when i saw it :)

    LOL. It's not so much a DC hat as a DC hot potato. I only caught it in the first place when PM stepped down... Maybe Bob the Hatstand should be permanent DC ;)

    ... I'm sure there's a pun in there somewhere about us all being DC comics, but I won't invoke it...

    Ps. Not so much "Cadder is stepping" as Cadder DID step... See secret squirrel post "who wants a job?" posted in October last year!

    I just... never had the title removed

    That's a good point. You did stand down but the change never took place. If the hat fit then it's a comfortable hat.

    Talking of PM, he hasn't been on-line for ages. Is everything OK with him?

    Oh my golly gosh. This was an interesting thread.

    What is the divisions status? Active or inactive?

    Do we need a DC?

    Cadder you still wish to step down? AO, did you wish o step up?
