Hopefully the inevitable success of the new Spider-Man game will spur on a new Arkhamverse Renaissance. Still waiting for Arkham Origins 2, if only to get this place abuzz again!

God I have missed this website. Sad that there hasn't been any Arkham news that we could talk about. Those were some good days. Really hope the forums can get a nice little reboot, and bring it back to what it once was :)

I still check this site on a weekly basis because the Arkham games are still the GOAT, but yeah, there's just nothing left to post about anything related to that. I hope the forum continues though.... guess I'm just letting you know that I'm still here at least :adam:

OPEN BETA OF THE NEW FORUMS

I've opened registration on the new forums for an open beta (possible soft launch). I will advertise / contact old members once I'm happy with the functionality of the new forums.

These forums are still open too. Home page link is now in the drop-down menu.

When the new site is launched, I think it would be good to send a email to all users hopefully pulling a lot of the oldtimers back in.

Wow, this is surprising. Kind of sad, but alright. Cool. I love this forum and I would hate to see it die out due to inactivity. I'd love to see new life injected into the forum. Like Benji, I agree with Mani-Man. Expanding our coverage would definitely increase appeal and could draw in more users.

I hope it's gonna be a success.

And I'm gonna miss the shit out of this place. :cry:

Howdy all,

I think that I'll be ready to invite a few of you into a beta of the new forum within the next week to help me pick out any bugs before I open it up more publicly.

Definitely agree with all of the above. Its getting quieter and quieter around here. Change is definitely needed.

I also like the idea of stepping away from an arkham focus especially since there series is over and it doesn't look like another one is coming any time soon.

I think it should probably focus on comics and media based on comics, maybe specifically DC but probably just a general thing. I don't think there's enough interesting stuff going on currently with one specific character to warrant a forum for them. Of course there could still be off topic threads for discussing movies, TV shows, games, music, and books that aren't related to comics.

I agree with Mani-Man.

Appeal to a broader audience my making the forum primarily about Batman, DC Comics, Video Games or anything geeky.

I may not have any good ideas for what could be done with this website, either... but if I can think of something interesting to post on one of the threads I definately will do so to keep this forum alive.

For a minute i thought that the site would be closed.

There is no denying that something needs to change, new life needs to breath into this place.
I feel like the forum has been held back due to it being considered a forum "just" for the Arkham games, despite being more.

I havent checked it for some time, but i could swear that there is no specific Batman Forum out there...so turning it into a Forum first and foremost for all Batman related things, that could maybe help.

I dont know, ive been thinking for a while how to get a broader audience into this place...but im not good at ideas.
I hope whatever you are planning brings new life to this place, would be a shame if not...i like the people here and had good discussions etc over the years.

THE FUTURE OF THE FORUMS

Post by Red_Robin » Oct 8th, 2017, 3:48 pm

I've been putting this off for months, maybe even a year, but the forums in their current state cannot continue.

I've been exploring options for how to move forward with them and unfortunately, I think that the best way to move forward will be to completely rebuild them with a new forum software structure. Ideally, we want to have a greater integration with the news blog so that discussion from news can flow more smoothly, but with the benefits that a forum provides.

I really, truly, 100% appreciate that some of you have stuck around and still use the forums to chat on, but I'm sure that you'll agree they need a new injection of life. I aim to bring that to you in the next couple of months, and, obviously, I won't just pull the plug, but will give you a timeframe, the first opportunity to hop onto the new and improved forums, and some crossover time.

As my design work begins on the new forums, I may ask for your input - any ideas would be welcomed - and am happy to discuss how the forums as they are could be archived.

As soon as I have an update for you, I shall post it here.

Best,
-RR :alfred:
