    Welcome everyone to the Niche Gamer forums. These are a long time coming, but we hope that you all enjoy your stay!

    Please be on the lookout for our future updates to the main site, as we are going to be rolling out updates in chunks.

    Our goal is to keep the site easy to browse/navigate, and to build it up into a hub for you all to use as a daily, and constant, source of both gaming news, info, and community.

    Please keep supporting us, and tell your friends!

    Neat.

    Will you have a forum just for discussion for Nichegamer articles on an individual basis?

    Seems like something that could just be done informally in the "feedback and issues" forum. I don't think every article would need its own corresponding forum post when there are already comment sections, and if its about a game surely the article would find its way into a post in the game discussion forum.

    I've been debating on this. I'm still not sure as it might feel spammy. Thoughts, everyone?

    That's actually a very common system on video games sites from Spain. No idea about other countries.

    I say, give it a subforum and, every time you make an article, open a thread and link it in the article itself. Escapist style.

    It's something I've enjoyed on the Escapist forums as an alternative, but that might be because they use that facebook plugin thing over there. I don't always want to reveal that much about myself when talking about an article.

    Might be redundant with the way you guys have disqus set up on the articles already.

    I put my thoughts up above but I do think it would get too spammy depending on the volume of articles.

    This isn't a bad idea actually. HMMMM. I was mostly focused on just getting this stuff live and public~

    Disqus is nice and all, but a forum thread offers a differend kind of discussion compared to facebook styled messages. At least secondo me.

    Congrats with the forum, I'm already in too many communities so I don't know if I'll come too much but I'll keep an eye from time to time.

    Also please remove signatures, they will only give cancer in a couple months, they always do.
