I love your side, i check it for news every morning before school and every 30 mins after school (well maybe every 2 hours..).
But there is one thing i dont like:
multiupload (except downloads with "direct download")
Do you upload all files or do you use the links the devs publish.
If you upload something yourself, could you please upload files (which cannot be direct downloaded from multiupload because they are to big or whatever) to mediafire too?
I dont like the waiting times and/or traffic limits of multiupload, rapidshare, etc.
For me and many others Mediafire is the best filehoste.
Thats the only thing i dont like
Keep up the good work, this is far the best ps3 scene site
i love this place..but you must get rid of these VERY ANNOYING ADS. I understand ads are needed ... but lets have some pop up ads instead of an ad that transfers your page and makes you lose your spot you were reading at. It loads the ad 2-3 times on the same page!!!
this place honestly has the worse ads ever.
the ads also constantly cause my ps3 to freeze when trying to browse this website.
but like i said .. other than the ads i love this place
How to make the site better: ban the trolls and, if possible the moralfags (not the ones who admit to using original games or anything, just the ones who dis everything that *COULD* potentially be used for piracy and immediately dis the creator or other users. They are, to say the least a big headache)
1. Seriously, these full page and 3/4 page ads on EVERY SINGLE latest news page are f*cking annoying. I'm a member, cut the ads down to at most 50% of the time for non-guests. My firewall at work blocks almost all of em anyways, and sometimes the 3/4 page ones get stuck; I can't exit them, and I have to exit the site and come back to it 5 times to see anything. The ads have gotten to the point of where I'm about to move to another site, and I really don't want to have to do that; I'm sure I'm not the only one that logs in at work and has this problem.
2. There's no where near as much forum moderation as what's needed. A**holes like turkish are allowed to tread on other people threads completely unchecked, and I could probably point out at least 2 or 3 threads per section with more advertisement posts than members talking.
3. Some threads that need to be stickied are ignored, even when multiple sticky requests have been made. Again, that falls in with the "not enough forum moderation" category. We need stickied guides that basically show a n00b every step needed to install cfw on their device, with full file paths to games included, links to all the needed software, etc.
4. A chat window would be nice, not completely needed, but nice.
5. This "your message has to be more characters" message is frustrating when your just trying to thank someone, but I assume its in place to reduce clutter.
6. I tried to post 3 links for someone to help them with a ps3 that wouldn't update, and I got a message saying a mod would need to authorize the post first (which took about 5 days to happen), then I go to another thread and there's 30 advertisement links; what's the deal with that?
If you guys need some help moderating the forum, just ask the community for help. I myself would be happy to help out. I think most people here would regonize my name from the jailbreak and general sections in help & support. I'd be happy to look over a couple sections if you guys need the extra help. He'll, I'm on here about 40 hrs a week anyways, might as well help out.
All in all, I love the site, keep up the great work, and your welcome for the contructive critisism.
EDIT: OOOH, and add a rep system. Definitely need a rep system.
First of all I'd like to say this place rocks. I've visited many of the PS3 dedicated sites out there, and this is the only one I go to for my PS3 information anymore. It ROCKS...
But since you're asking, I have a couple suggestions...
1. That advertising that replaces your site is REALLY irritating. If your site wasn't so totally AWESOME, that would be enough to make me go away and never come back. Advertising on the pages is fine, but where it takes me away from what I'm reading (and my place on the page) to show me some inane advertising drives me mad!
2. Adding a collective banning feature. I have on a couple occasions seen some idiot posting spam... and by spam... the worst kind of **** and inappropriate pictures in the threads. Was wondering if someone could come up with a collective banning tool that would allow a person to be banned and all of his posts to be struck from the site if say 10 or 20 (or however many you deem suitable) people agree on it. Perhaps there could be a "collective ban" link and if that many people agree, the system cleanses the site of their posts. It could be tied to IP addresses for users so it couldn't be abused...
Maybe it's a stupid idea, but thought that perhaps we could take the load off the admins when something happens like this. Given that kids visit this site too, my only intent here is to see if we could facilitate a quicker way of getting rid of these kind of posts...
That's about all I have to suggest. The site is awesome, you come up with the news quickly and I really look forward to following the scene each day.
Keep up the great work!
I agree with this. I don't mean any disrespect to Devs, but I don't care about PS3 Game Update software or organizational tools, or crazy tools for SELF files, etc. I only care about news on new Managers, new exploits, etc.

I don't mind banners telling me to buy shit, but when an ad takes over my full screen and makes me find the skip or close ad button, I lose interest in what I came here for in the first place. Hopefully these ads bring you in no money at all and you realize how much it takes away from the content you guys bring.
Besides the intrusive ads, the site is great. The layout works perfectly for a regular visitor. It was very easy to navigate and find what I was looking for when I first started coming here.
