Before being a regular (albeit kinda unknown) at Destructoid, I used to be a very big community member in a site called DS-Play. After a bit, I got promoted to editor and later on, moderator. The site spread into a network and because of this, its traffic decreased and died. Needless to say, it hurt me how a place I put so much effort into became dead because people couldn't be bothered to write a different URL.
Now, the site's admin is trying a sort of comeback. I need to know if older people like the destructoid community like these layouts. The sites can be found here: DS-Play Wii-Play 360-Play PS-Play Retro-Play Gr00pz
Gr00pz is a site where you can create your own mini-site with a blog, forums, chat, etc.(mainly for clans and guilds).
Anyway, opinions on the layout?
p.s. Before flaming, please note I didn't ask anyone to sign up.
