So obviously you can see PWE has completely changed. We have gone away from the other CMS we used which means membership/signing up has completely changed… for the better. I know the first impressions/opinions will be about chat being gone… but the upside is we now have real-time commenting using system. So essentially every post/topic is a chat room and not a flowing chat with multiple topics going on at once. So if you want to discuss about baseball then make a baseball post. If you want to talk about cats then make a cat post. We will probably enable chat for gameday or private messaging.
This is for the better and will make other parts of the site actually useful. We want to gear up to make the game time experience really fun… and also want to take advantage of mobile real time commenting.
