    As I sit here and flip through the numerous pages of boosting requests (KOTH, arcade, achievement etc) I also notice a large number of service offered to do such things as well. So why not pin or sticky those who are offering the services to clean up a lot of the clutter in this section? I've find quite a bit of good information here but it's a pain to have to dig through it all to get to it. I know I haven't been posting here much but it's only a suggestion. :biggrin:

    I agree....maybe a pinned thread on Achievement trading and a Boosting thread like X360.org!

    There is only one new topic posted per 2 days or so.
    Have you seen the MW3 Boosting section?

    yeah that's basically what i'm moving for. that way we don't have individual threads of people asking for boosting and achievements (regardless of age or number per day) they can just post in the provided thread. I for one will be running my lobbies for quite some time especially if i can get someone else to bridge with me... "rambo's" joining boosting lobbies mid-game sucks. :frown:

    As an old Moderator, i'd personally find the most requested topics, i.e. Boosting, Horde, Beast, Versus Clans etc and make seperate locations for mass messages.

    For example, if i wanted to find someone to boost with i'd go to the Stickied "Boosting Help" thread for example and simply reply to the on-going thread, no singular topics saying the same ****, just leave a post and if someone wants to help they can PM you.

    Shorter version:

    (For example)
    "I want to boost today, i'll go to the GOW3 Boosting Help Thread"
    *Makes post saying - Hey, anyone wanna boost, i'll be onlin for a while so PM me w.e.*

    Await reply.

    Get reply.

    Bowst?!!!

    it may have a horrible layout to kids like you, but to more organized people it's a great layout. different platforms followed by each game belonging to that platform and so on. it may not look the best because they could use a newer looking vb board but who cares, it's organized. i bet your desktop has about a thousand icons on it because you don't sort through everything and organize... i'd also hate to see what your programs list looks like in the start menu. :eek:

    I know what a bowstring is by the way, i was picking on him for his typo. he meant to say boosting instead of bowsting. :wink:

    Everything is ordered in maps actually. You can see a picture of it here.
    I use the site a lot but the layout is too old, its need a more modern layout.
