I'd probably use both, but only if the official spore forums are as interesting as this community. If it's jsut a bunch of spammers and jerks, I guess I'd stay and spend most of my time in Gamingsteve.

the official spore forums will be a shield for our happy secret community. we must rely on the power of the shield/baricade. i stay here. maybe another account for the official spore forums to help the newbies there, but my hart lays in this village forum.  ;D

Like others have said, for me it depends on the community of the official forum.

P.S. For an example of a good game with a terrible forum community google 'wow'(Obviously I don't mean every single poster or the occasional brilliant posters and posts, but the majority... :'().
My predictions for Spore.

1) No water creatures at initial release. I was right about this even when the fanboys were denying it.
2) No composite limbs at initial release. eg. Buttface; attaching a limb to a limb to... Update: Prediction was incorrect. Buttface is in!
3) Spore will outsell the Sims and be the best selling game of all time until something better comes along.

I will take a look and see what the official forum is, if I don't like the community I just leave faster than I came.
I will stay on GamingSteve... Till my heart stops pumping. ( I think)

I'll stick around here mostly.  Might lurk on some other sites and the official Spore forums, but this one is home.  Plus, I think its safe to bet that its been around longer than any others.

You guys have a good point, the forums not going to die down. We are going to get a bunch of more people looking for help and gltiches. Yay...

Even though everybody says that they stay away from the spore section and that they try not to be apart of it, the Spore section is a huge part of GS. First of all, we get most of our new members from the spore because people allways search for information on spore here. Second of all, the spore section is a place where newbies can practice posting. Once they are ready they move to the forum games section then to the rest of the forum. Basiclly spore is the thing that drives the GS forums. Basiclly Spore is the thing that keeps the pattren of the forum (People here about spore, think it is awesome, search for more information, check out Gamingsteve.com and it's forum, post in the spore forum, slowly learn the ropes of GS, spread to the forum games section, spread everywhere else, soon become part of the GS forum "family" and hardly ever post in the spore section again) of corse this isn't the same for everyone, but for most people it is true.

As much as I agree that the Spore forums bring GS members, I have to disagree with how someone goes from a spore reader to the other forums. Just check some random people in the Spore forums. There are some people with over a thousand posts, and I've never seen their name before. Ever. I don't think they're just "learning the ropes" over in Spore. That's just where their interests lie, and that's what they want to post about. I just think it'd be nice if they explored the rest of the forums, to see if they'll contribute to the rest of them, not just Spore. There's a rift in this community between people here for Spore, and people here for Gamingsteve, and we should do our best to close it a little now and then.

As for what'll happen when Spore is released, I think the last thing those forums will do is die. I have no idea how they stayed alive through months of information-droughts. The game's release will change the discussion, but there will still be a lot of activity.

Good god, I hope these don't become the official forums.
They'd be ruined.

Anyways, yeah, I'll stay for a bit. I mainly want to stick around to see how all your creatures and stuff are doing, what you think of the game, ideas for the future.
Milk a few final discussions out 'til it's totally done.

If this will become the official I think I will go away, maybe not but I like it enough here, with people I reconize from avatar or more, and there will be too many newbs.

We should designate a new forum area now in case of officialization, then move over there to dodge the invevitable newb influx  ;D

Maybe delete the address post if they start coming in  ;)
