Hello everyone. I have some exciting news to share with all of you.
When I started GameUsedForum.com I did it to benefit the collecting community and as I hope you all know, I am always looking for ways to improve the site and take our information sharing to the next level. In the coming days there will be a few changes to GameUsedForum.com that will benefit everyone involved with our site.
In about a week we will be re-launching GameUsedForum.com with an improved format and access to new features thanks to a new alliance with GameUsedUniverse.com
Over the past few months, I have been extremely impressed with Game Used Universe. They were created with the same goals in mind that we have here- to help collectors and better the hobby and as I like to say “Share The Knowledge.” Thus, rather than trying to achieve this objective separately, we decided to work together.
Our GameUsedForum.com site will serve as the forums over at www.GameUsedUniverse.com
I will continue to moderate the forums exactly as I do now and they will continue to be free for everyone- but now members will get additional benefits
All GameUsedForum.com members will also have free access to Game Used Universe's "Experts' Corner" where hobby luminaries like Vince Malta, Rob Steinmetz, Mike Specht, Jim Yackel, Barry Meisel, Jim Caravello and others write blogs sharing their expertise and answer your questions.
It will also allow forum members free access to post on the Game Used Universe "Hobby Network", a section where users list their interests and can search out others with similar buying/selling interests. It's also a place to show photos of your collection. There are also other benefits the alliance will enable us to provide forum members in the future. Those benefits will be explained when they are ready to be rolled out.
It's a perfect fit.
The transition is planned for next week, however a preview of the new GameUsedForum.com forums can be found at www.gameuseduniverse.com Click on "forums"
With the re-launch, people will need to re-register with user name, password and email address. It will be as simple as when you had to do it originally and your info will not be shared with anyone. Once we're ready to launch, specific information on registration will be provided.
When we're up and running, members will be able to access the same forums through either www.gameusedforum.com or www.gameuseduniverse.com.
I sincerely believe all of this is a tremendous positive step in the hobby. The more information we share, the better the hobby becomes.
I will pass along more details as we prepare for the transition. If there are any questions, feel free to email me at [email protected]
or post them here. I thank everyone for making the forum what it is, and I look forward to everything we can do together in the future.
