As we have seen in some previews for how they would change the homepage lay out already, if they do this then this will all be irrelevant. I don't see the big deal of adding 1 game that has new quests but is kind of old to the new games section, plain and simple.

I have no problem with it, you shouldn't either, just go on with your day and if you want to play some new games that you have seen but aren't on the new games section go to the link provided or just click the all 'genre'.

You've been told by various people already that it really doesn't matter, so I'm going to be the *** and tell you to get over it n.n

When you say "we" do you have a mouse in your pocket? I haven't seen anything, nor do I follow the site enough to know every detail about the future. I come here (often) to play new games, select my own favorites (not what other people have rated good), and play something different than I have for the last year or so.

When I beat a game, I don't want to play it 100 more times (with a very rare exception). I am not here to read up on everything that comes down the pipe. I just want to play games and relax. I came here to try to express that sentiment, and say that I might have to start going to some other agitator that actually has a bigger focus on ease of use than some badge collecting club.

Armor benefits from my presence (when I click through an ad, or buy premium content). I could just as easily take it elsewhere, but I felt a sense of loyalty to what was my favorite game site.

I had never posted before, because nothing on the site bugged me previously. I thought feedback would be helpful, because how many links to Sinjid does the home page need? Two weeks ago it was literally 8 on there. How many front page links does Infectinator 2 need? Last week it was 8.

So, "everyone else" (5 forum jockeys, two of which are mods, and thus site cheerleaders by default) tell me that everything makes sense at armor games, and you yourself feel so strongly about it, that you want to curse at a guy that only had a small issue, that on paper is completely legitimate.

Well, with that type of attitude, from you specifically sourwhatup2, I guess Armor can go and do what it wants, because I no longer feel the need to financially support the site.

So, thank you for your clear cut analysis and your representation of the community. It shows that there are better places for me to be than here.

Whoa, I get what you're saying. The latest quest section (the box that has the link to six of the latest quests) could highlight one different quest from six different games. And then the highest rated games are already on the side of the main page. So Sinjid is on the front page for a long time already because it's in the popular games section, as well as was Infectonator 2 (I think).

It is redundant and the latest quests box should showcase more than one game. But, I feel that popular games stay longer in the new games section and old quest games return there because most people are probably to lazy to look to the side of the page or scroll down. So it still makes sense to me to put those games there. Why not showcase them as much as possible?

It can be organized better, but it's a really small issues. Is clicking the all games button so difficult? So difficult to make you leave the site? It's one click. You can scroll pages and pages of the new games in chronological order.

And why leave the site and get so worked up over such a small issue, you even said so yourself.

...and you yourself feel so strongly about it, that you want to curse at a guy that only had a small issue..


Why leave the site when you can join multiple sites. You would get the most variety of games that way. You would have access to all the exclusive games and you would see new releases sooner on one site before they are released to others (as often one flash gaming site will release a game before the others).

The factor that new games get pushed off may be a little bit of a rush though. Many games ratings can vary 50 points within its first two weeks. If it was just bumped off the list right away because of an early drop from the more hard core flash gamers voting it low (the ones who visit the site more often). It really doesn't give every new game a chance. There are some very great games under those piles and piles of promoted games and MMORPGs (Wartune, etc.).

All I said was that it isn't a big deal that's it. Don't turn my attitude towards you a problem as well. If you want to leave then leave.

Now you could always just stay here and join other sites as well, it's not difficult. Some sites have games that don't come out on here because AG is pretty exclusive when it comes to games. By exclusive I mean they usually only put out a few games a week.

Anyways if you think my attitude is rash, don't go onto other forums because my attitude is pretty small compared to others on the internet... Besides I'm usually not like this but sometimes people just need to be told straight up about things and I'm a person that does that even if it has to be a little rough around the edges.

This.

that you want to curse at a guy that only had a small issue


Who has done this? Everyone is trying to explain to you that it isn't a big deal, that's it. We aren't flaming you or trolling you. We aren't insulting you. Anything else that could potentially ''curse'' you.

It didn't get that far yet... but let us try to keep this discussion going without resulting into flaming at one-another, ok? And I'm ignoring your attempts to picture us (the moderators) as some sort of 'website cheerleader persons' here, because we (staff, mod team and users) all want to have every user stay as a member and enjoy, and contribute to, this website and it's community. =)

Let's also make one thing clear here... users suggesting features for, or alterations to, this website is something that is actually valued and always welcomed by the ArmorGames staff, I can vouch for that.
But... we all DO need to understand that whenever something is suggested (no matter how good that suggestion is) this can not be implemented to the website straight away simply because one or more users suggested it... and making pressurizing statements that "you will then leave and take your beneficial presence, and financial support, elsewhere" won't persuade the staff to go ahead and rush to quickly edit the homepage either.

ArmorGames is currently in a constant process of enhancing it's presence, upgrading it's appearance and improvement of the experience, and enjoyability, of Flash gaming.
If you making this suggestion, which resulted in a small discussion, is grounds enough for you to leave ArmorGames behind and play Flash Games on another website, then I am truly sorry to see you leave, but I do hope you will reconsider and stay to follow the ongoing development and upgrading of the website. =)
