I've seen a lot of questions about the status of AG3 in various forums. RonJohn recently made a post on GetSatisfaction that I think clears up most of your questions, but maybe you haven't seen it, so I'm going to quote it here...


Here's a little more detail about the beta website ending on August 31st:

Only the beta site (beta.armorgames.com) is going away, not the normal site at armorgames.com
The purpose of the beta site was to try new ideas, test performance and technology solutions. We tried a lot of new things and measured if players used them, if they liked them, and if they helped the site. The best stuff will live on at: armorgames.com, the bad stuff will die a horrible, horrible death.
The plan is to start applying the things we learned to the normal site... so, you're going to see a lot of awesome changes coming up in the near future.



The features that we've tested in the beta, and that are being talked about in this forum, are going to start being introduced into the site as you see it now.

I've also unstickied several of the threads in this forum that are not entirely relevant now -- there are simply too many stickies and this forum is hard to navigate.

All of the admins are all working hard for the new additions, and we're excited about what's coming!

It seems like the only way to access our profiles is to type it in the url bar. Fix this as well.

Yes. Or going through the Top 100 or to a thread you posted in. Either way it is really annoying so it would be great to fix it.

Yeah I basically just made my profile a bookmark but I would like some link directly to it rather than taking a slot on my bookmarks bar

I like the new profile layout and the different aspects of the forums although it will take awhile for me to get used to the bigger quoted text!

Also the search bar seems to be worker MUCH better for games as well. Just a few days ago typing "raze 2" would give you a crapload of hits and now it just gives you one, Raze 2.

I notice a link to the "All" category, and I agree that there needs to be a direct link to your own profile.

Whoops, I guess there is now a "view profile" feature! That was quick!

Pretty cool. About time they did an update like this... Been waiting for over two years.

There's an issue with the profiles. When you view your profile and look at the 'favorite games' section, without clicking view all, the images for the games seem to overlap the titles of said games. Makes it impossible to tell what those games are unless you have memorized what games are associated with the picture overlapping the text.

There is also no red flag next to the report button for either the forums or game comments. While you can somewhat guess where the report button is for the forums, I had extreme difficulty finding it on the game comments.

I just found out that some international characters are now accepted instead of doing []?[][].
Test it to make sure:

Well, it gets some. More than before, but not all.

The flag has been fixed. Also, the seasonal armatars have returned.

I found an inconsistency in merited comments. boppins gave me a merit for reporting the flag issue (now fixed) on his profile. I got the AP and a merit notification (I have Merit Notify on), but boppins's profile does not show the merited comment as a merit until the "View All Comments" button is clicked.
