I think it's just temporary for E3 anyway.

I'm not a fan.  If we want to follow you on twitter, we'll click the twitter link, we don't need the huge block there that forces us to scroll down for the forum.
The purpose for that is so people can read updates who don't follow twitter. Many people still read the front page. If you want to go directly to the forum, you can bookmark the forum url. That's how I usually do it.

I just leave the tab open. Since Firefox can remember sessions, I always have the GamingSteve tab. :)

How does that make any sense?  If I'm not following him on twitter, it's because I don't want to follow him on twitter.  Twitter is a largely useless fad.

It makes sense because if you want gaming updates or information from Steve then he is doing it through twitter now. If you don't use twitter, you can read it on the front page. If you don't want to read those updates then change your opening link and bypass it.

I still maintain that if we wanted to follow him on twitter, we would, you know, follow him on twitter.  I don't even care that it's on the front page, I care where it is on the front page.  It should be in a news post or on the right hand side of the page or below the forum link.  Forcing us to either scroll down and deal with it or change our opening link sucks.  You can argue that I'm being an ******* right now, but you really can't argue that it's not in a bad spot.  Whatever, I guess.

All you need to do is bookmark the forum page, not the front page. The forum has a link back to the front page at the top. No scrolling required.

I think Sub's point is that he likes to go through the front page so that he can see if there are any updates and that Twitter is made it slightly more time consuming to get through. It's only an extra second or two though.

I'll agree with this one. It's not that big a deal. I thought it was a good thing myself. A few extra secs aren't that big a deal.

Not gonna lie, it doesn't take a whole lot of arguing.

Personally I've always had the forums bookmarked. I never go to the homepage.
