Nope. The forums will probably be wiped, the old AP system scrapped (along with all of the users' AP, since they won't apply in AG3), but whatever comments there were on games and such will be moved over (I think...?).

There is no release date for AGv3, but you can take a look on the beta-version, just click on the "The New Armor Games is comming soon..." on the top

I know where it is, but I wonder why the old one (maybe AG v.2) isn't replaced with the new one.... (although the v.2 is ok)....
There're 2 things I want to suggest improving :
+ Armorgames forum system and skin.... still lacks so many things such as : forums editing, forums rating, emoticons, videos adding, more fonts styles, fonts colors, spoil tab (in order that there're so many images or videos),...
+ Custom avatars ! I don't love AG's ones much !

Because AG3 is still in beta, e.g. Not complete.

As for the forums, they are discussing it all here.

Unfortunately, custom armatars will not be available in AG3, for a number of reasons. Check here.

They improved the search bar so that it will search for users and games.

As joel mentioned AGv3 is still in beta, its not a fully performed site with all functions, for now its more a testarea. And you can see how the new one looks like.

There're 2 things I want to suggest improving :
+ Armorgames forum system and skin.... still lacks so many things such as : forums editing, forums rating, emoticons, videos adding, more fonts styles, fonts colors, spoil tab (in order that there're so many images or videos),...


Sure, some things are not implemented/shown yet... but when AGv3 is released there some more features, and some others will be implemented after the release. Colors... you can use different colors for your posts, only a lil html is needed for that (there is a guide in Support and Suggestions), but dont use green or blue, cuz there reserved for the stuff.


+ Custom avatars ! I don't love AG's ones much !


AG answered that a long time ago --> NO custom armatars/avatars...
Why? Well, cuz that will cause a lot of trouble. Thinking about how many (in there minds)...hmmm, lets say "funny" avatars will be uploaded from users...

The "trouble" is not persuasive at all ... ! Every accounts must have announcements/messages that they are breakin' the rules... how many mistakes (which minus AP point) they got... and they have to fix it or ready to be banned...
This can be easily done by surfing the forums once... But I wonder (again) where the moderators are !

Surfing the forum once? You really think that? Well, not all are present in the Forums, so you must monitor the profiles, and there will be thousands over thousands new uploads every day, and each one can cause trouble, not only "funny" pics, there also copyright/licensing issues and these ones causes a lot of trouble (to obviate potential doubts... search the internet, youll found tons of cases where people think they can use a pic with no problems...).
So every new upload must be overviewed... thousands over thousands every day... how many employees you will need for that?
And the mods... well, there not employees of AG, they do that all for no money, they all have a real life and cant be present 24/7.
And admins... well, they employees... and employees want money...
All in all its impracticable.
