    I still have yet to receive/claim my free Steam copy of Zeno Clash from winning a podcast competition way back in 2009, lol.

    Not for either as for me it is quicker to visit the site even once a week and see the news and articles which usually only take up the first page than to bother with an email which will inevitably link to the site anyway. I'd rather more work on in depth articles, modding guides and tutorials rather than more ways to be made aware of the same, few articles which are padded out with numerous game reviews now.

    My daily visits to BT are a remnant of my old addiction for the site, not a current need as the content has died a death in my opinion.
    (the last monitor reviews and round-up was in 2014... there are no modding articles whatsoever... case and rad fan reviews/articles are years old too... I could go on, there is so much more that could be covered and just isn't.)

    I hadn't forgotten. Rick doesn't need it anyway - give him a GTX 460 and let him feel the frustration of those of us who can't turn everything up to 11. It'll be good for him, empathy for the common man n all that good stuff. :D

    Hi SchizoFrog
    Thanks for your feedback. I do read as much as i can with regards to suggestions and comments in general. I also appreciate your regular input to the Forum community.

    We have many plans in the pipeline Eg Looking at Monitors again, also some other awesome categories that you will hopefully see shortly. Ultimately giving what you have asked for "Round ups" and "in depth reviews and guides"
    I would love to say that it wall be going up tomorrow, however, some leg work is still to be done BUT it will come none the less.

    In order to give some insight too, things that the community will not see directly is the HUGE amount of work that goes on behind the scenes. Things that will affect some and not others. Full focus with a dedicated team is being given and i cant wait to share the fruits of our labour with you soon.

    Until next time, thank you again for being part of the community and i hope that we can bring you back more often than you already are :)

    Saw this in my Spam folder and assumed it was just that!
    Never been a fan of summary emails, but can see it being useful for infrequent but interested visitors, forums members not so much.

    BUT, its good to see effort being made to interact with the community :)

    Hooray! I was automatically signed up for the newsletter.

    That was an instant unsubscribe. The amount of needless crap I already get in my email is staggering.

    To my knowledge that link isn't used anywhere. I think we put it behind a different URL. I'm testing a GPU atm but I'll investigate later. Cheers
