I like the new way. I used to get so freaking pissed when I'd come in here and there'd be like 5 Chan Ho threads on one night. Screw that. I like it this way. ;-D

Here's the thing...

Had it always been this way since you joined the Cafe, it'd never even be second guessed. You'd just have accepted it as the way the Cafe runs the Game Commentary Forum (which now actually follows the forum description), and there'd be no debate, or 'voting' or any of this nonsense. However, the argument that it somehow takes away your 'creativity' (you mean like the 'I hate fantasy baseball' or 'I DIDN'T START CHRIS YOUNG LAST NIGHT' threads??) is just sheer silliness, as is this little 'poll'. The majority of people who are actually going to speak up are those in opposition, because those in favor are just enjoying the new format, and actually using it, while tidying up the Forum in the process. You can't tell me that you would've magically one day, while perusing this Forum thought to yourself, "You know what, this format really prohibits me from being creative. I suddenly feel oppressed, with the need to be vocal about it." So, just pretend it's always been this way, the way it should have been all along, and be done with it.

Count me down as strongly opposed, for fun's sake, to going back to the old format, which as far as I can tell, will never happen, thankfully.

Looks like you'll just have to get used to it and find something else to complain about. ;-7

Which part got you? The following the forum description, or the part where organized > disorganized?

There's a reason the inmates don't run the asylum. It appears that's been lost in the shuffle in the minds of a few. I'll let this be my last post on the matter, and go back to enjoying the forum. ;-D

rotfl

forums exist for people's enjoyment

I think that if the "inmates" start to avoid Game Commentary, the Mods will be forced to come back to the old way
