Predictions of significant events in Tested's Forum future.

  • So, most of us are from GB, hopefully that will change soon, and we wont scare off anybody from joining in on the fun,  
    Most of us know how the GB Forums evolved, from it's infancy to what can now be called a respectable forum, 
      
    And, in saying that, Most of us know what the significant threads and events that occurred during the GB Forums near 2 year run,  
    I'm talking about the IC9 thread, Doug, Endo's, and Ms_Chevios's model thread that went from 0 to 10'000 views in a day, Who, as it is rumoured to be Dave dressed in a skirt, (who knows)   
     
    So, predictions people, what could happen in the next 6 months, anybody got game to predict a year? 
    We already have a much needed Photoshop thread, When will Doug turn up?
     
    Bets are on.
  •  I honestly have no idea. As you said so far this place seems to GB phase shifted to focus on tech. So here's to crazy shit happening in the future. Oh, by the way.
     
    Her name was Klotz
     
     I couldn't think of how to incorporate the modelling thread into that sentence but I'm happy with 3 out of 4.
  • What was "doug" about again? I don't remember that.
  • @Waytofind:  
    Some random decided to make a thread about the cartoon Doug, he created all the major characters as alt usernames, and just had a bitching contest in his thread with his Alt Acc's, way to much time on his hands, but it was really funny.
  • @Waytofind: here
     
    I actually had to look it up to remember what it was about myself.
  • @NoDeath:@Red12b: Oh wow, such a shame that i missed that thread back in the day. 
     
    As for this site i'm sure we'll see some question by people who messed up their computers in some pretty amazing ways.

    Tested would become a help based website, would like to see that.
  • Duder... on a hotly anticipated video... with the 7 pages of duder comments...
     then it is real.

    Wrong. It was several different people who all hopped in on it individually. 
     
    I don't think these boards will stir up anything nearly as insane as GiantBomb's, if sheerly due to the fact that the maturity level of the general (fairly small) active userbase so far appears to be several levels higher than that of most of GB's rowdiest early participants.
  • I hope this board become's it's own entity, as opposed to Just Another Giant Bomb. 
     
    hurrah fer maturity!
  • @Red12b: I agree with all of that. A "girl" will show up, it'l freak out most of the users, and I'll point and laugh from a distance. 
     
    Other things I think will happen include a bunch of memes/inside jokes from the podcast, a bunch of people making a "civil war" against the crew in which the general consensus of the events will be a resounding "meh" and someone typing the equivalent of "GET HYPE", which would take these boards BY STORM.
     
    Oh also, I just saw that Doug thread, it's the funniest fucking thing I've seen all day. And I saw the trailer for the new Twilight movie today, so there's a fair comparison there.
  • I predict I'll be more informed about apps and devices I don't use or have.

    In six months, I'll be able to talk trash with the 7 year old kids in my neighborhood. Smart little bastards.
  • A civil war will break out between the waffle and pancake factions.
  • More photoshops of Norm recording historical events. Definitely.
  • I just hope it isn't "GB, but about tech".  I like that there are some distinct differences in community on the different sites, I'd rather not just see the same exact people talking about different stuff. 
     
    No offense intended, of course.

    I predict a "How do I hide my browsing history/porn stash from my parents?" thread every few months
  • Don't know what's going to go down but I am excited to see what will.

    So far that's mainly because the only read exposure this site has gotten is through its whiskey media brethren, namely Jeff and Ryan. This wasn't really the case (at least not to the same level) with any of the other sites. CV came first, most of the initial GB duders were from Gamespot or had heard of the Gerstmanngate incident (that should be a movie title) and I'm pretty sure gia had a readership before Anime Vice that followed her there.
