It seems to have more do with traffic, but I hope the powers that be realize they can get the traffic with the front page and still have the message boards this place was known for by reincorporating the Legacy format inside the new design. New members will always want a high traffic message board to discuss their opinions. This seems like an easy win win decision.

Agree with all of this. I don't get why they just don't do it already.

You guys need to speak to Killrobot.

I read from Tool Shed or Killrobot can't remember which he wasn't going to link these boards to replace the new ones, but if they do something like you said I don't see what the problem would be, that being said, if he wasn't going to have it linked to here, I don't see why they'd make it look like this.

I don't think these boards will ever see the new layout. All we can do is that in time hope they sort out a system that works effectively.

The "new" site is terrible. I don't even bother going there any more.

Nope, I lost hope awhile back when Killrobot made it clear that he doesn't give a flying fuck what any of us think but it's his site, if he wants to point the nose of the plane straight at the ground that is his business, we're all just the disgruntled passengers on his airline.

As long as BD Legacy stays around, so will I. There should at least be an administrator for this board...that way things around here can be fixed or improved, if need be.

I sure do miss the old site, though.

Yeah, I agree. I understand why it had to be done but BD has always been like a second home to me. I came here to read updates, give reviews, and have debates with other members. Now, most of all the ol' chaps are gone. So, yeah, I miss the old place, but I doubt it'll ever be the same.

I'm probably a little late to the game with this question, but exactly how does the admin system work around here. I know we have admins who post regularly and keep the boards in order such as Breed and Caustic. Do they have any say in what KillRobot does or are they just here to keep things in line? I'm just trying to understand the chain of command a bit better.
