    Post Banglagamer.com Less gaming more shopping

    Banglagamer.com used to be best gaming forum of the country and one of the best forum of the country. As far as I know and remember, the motive behind the site was gaming and only gaming. But I was shocked yesterday when I logged in and saw the gaming section is clubbed. I was like why on earth we have 3 Subforum for shopping related stuffs and the core function of the forum got clubbed to category. For some people it might seems legit as the individual games goes to subforum, but as a old user (though I hardly post /btw its my 2nd id) I prefer the old theme there, where we had focused section for games like CS, DOTA, UT or WoW. The advantage of that theme was, we could see the last post on specific games section. Like for me, every time I log in I used to check WoW section in case of new post.
    This is a user feedback, nothing else. I was always against that shop section, now all I can see shopping getting more focus than gaming. Even I see less game review these days, rather we have lots of ISPs review, and even I saw someone advertising (kinda). I hope Banglagamer.com will return to its past glory.

    I guess in times before i was here things were better and more categorized on gaming than other things. He is right am seeing a lot of non-game related activities around the forums

    I did not saw any other gaming forum with half as much shop section activity like BG, and the shop section activity is increasing in number day by day, very irritating stuff to say the list.

    its still the best gaming forum in bd by a light year and still one of the more popular forums in bd.its just that these days people are more into facebook and all and hence the time spent in bg is now diverted elsewhere.and there are more subforums to keep things in their proper category and nothing else.

    and i don't see any wrong in people giving isp reviews.actually this shows more people are coming to bg to ask about the isps and the older members are giving responses to those questions.

    i too feel similarly... i think BG serves to a much larger category of ppl and all sorts of ppl come here with their weird questions and their stuff to sell cause they get their answers here. and there's this certain 'flare' abt some of the senior members[which they create and maintain themselves] that builds a sense of trust which helps us believe the answers they give...

    Users decide how the general direction of the discussions will be. It is up to you (users) to focus more on gaming (if you feel like).
    The abuse of greatness is when it disjoins remorse from power.
    Please do not PM me for support. You will NOT get a reply. Post in the relevant forum section.

    as @mr_08 says. Facebook is at fault here. And the new guys dont get forums. to them FB is better. But they dont get that FB has a serious archiving issue.

    Look at a really active group like BDCyclists. A good post goes missing in 30 minutes. They are trying to move their QA section to a forum. To no avail.

    Forums are way better. but most people use FB. And they think this is easier. Nothing can be done about this.

    Bro.. There was always stuff like FB .. u cant just blame FB or other things to b a reason behind BG behind less popular... And u agree or not, BG became less popular. Many old and legendary users became irregular. I was talking to Moderator of BG, his opinion was somewhat similar.
    For Eg. me along with atleast 5-6 friends became irregular in BG bcz we were tired of seeing people joining the forum just to use shop section...less gaming talk more business....
    I dnt have issue about isp review or anything. But, its nt a ISP review forum in the first place. Its a gaming forum and gaming should get prio. I ll b always grateful to BG, as via BG I came to know that its possible to play games online from BD... In this days, contribution toward gaming is near zero on Banglagamer. If someone conduct a honest survey among the new users (Registered in last 1 year) I am sure, u ll see 50% of them dont even play games, 25% of the people play games bt FB games, 10% of them hardly play games... And rest might b true gamer.
    If someone ask me, how a gaming forum should like... I ll definitely say that, there will b tons of sections for popular games... And stuff like ISP or Shopping should be clubbed.
    Anyway, I just got back from work, too tired.. Structure of the post might got jumbled. Sorry for that.

    Do you know what most gamers do while playing games or breaks between two games? Alt+tab -> FB -> (tries to) flirt with some girls
    They are not interested in discussing games.

    If you don't believe me, go to any game café with internet in BD.
    The abuse of greatness is when it disjoins remorse from power.
    Please do not PM me for support. You will NOT get a reply. Post in the relevant forum section.

    I know that. I just wanted to point a simple thing. To me it seemed that focus on gaming section in BG reduced, thats it. Just a user review.

    You can't blame Facebook. FB was born 4years before BG. But BG was amazing 2 years ago. I saw people commenting how lame Facebooking and how addicting bg is.

    I am regular on other forums and nobody use this lame excuse. They are all crowdy.

    It is really irritating to see how bg turned into shop focused site now.

    For Eg. me along with atleast 5-6 friends became irregular in BG bcz we were tired of seeing people joining the forum just to use shop section...less gaming talk more business....
    I dnt have issue about isp review or anything. But, its nt a ISP review forum in the first place. Its a gaming forum and gaming should get prio. I ll b always grateful to BG, as via BG I came to know that its possible to play games online from BD... In this days, contribution toward gaming is near zero on Banglagamer. If someone conduct a honest survey among the new users (Registered in last 1 year) I am sure, u ll see 50% of them dont even play games, 25% of the people play games bt FB games, 10% of them hardly play games... And rest might b true gamer.
    If someone ask me, how a gaming forum should like... I ll definitely say that, there will b tons of sections for popular games... And stuff like ISP or Shopping should be clubbed.
    Anyway, I just got back from work, too tired.. Structure of the post might got jumbled. Sorry for that.

    You are making one flawed assumption, BG has not been a gaming-only site for quite a while now.

    Most "gamers" in BD only care about whether or not their game will run properly in their PC or not. They are not interested in discussing story, characters, detail etc. They will just play and be done with it. So it's also natural to expect high shop activity. BG is also a hardware forum, and if you look at other hardware forums (which I'm sure no one compared it to) you will see that those forums have high shop activity as well.

    And for those of you saying FB has no effect, you need to look closer. Its obvious FB had a huge impact. It was created X years ago, so? How many people actively used FB back then?

    Back then, BG was the primary way of communicating efficiently with gamers, now it isn't. Hosting a tourney? Make an event page. Starting a new community? Make a group. Everybody knows everybody and will invite others accordingly. Proof? Easy.

    Look at the tournament threads here, and then recall how many tournaments you played/know about. CSGO has 110+ registered players right now and yet the only thread here is CvP's beta review. They are all in FB, and handling things there is just better. Anyone who has helped organize something knows how much more efficient FB is.

    3-no lan in fifa!the game fifa drove the bd gaming community,lan chole jawar por tourney komey gese,multiplayer khela komey gese,and overall interest kichhu ta toh komse.the number of fifa players are not much lower compared to 2007/08 but multiplayer fifa,and competitive fifa which is the soul of bd gaming is not like before,and a big reason is the lack of lan play.arekta bepar jetar karone competitve fifa ager moto nai oita hochhe amra ek year e onek skilled gamer lose korsi.ami jani na apne fifa playerder kototuku chinen,but i'd name two players,sms aka shourav bhai and killer aka babu bhai.hall e jeye unader shathe kheltam,tader je skill level chhilo,and the level of understanding of shourav bhai about the game of fifa was just unbelievable.jara ekbar khelse tara abar hall e gese,even boshe khela dekhte o onek moja lagto.wcg 2009 er pore 80% of the old players were gone.

    4-rise of console gaming in bd-people play these single player campaigns [kichhu title asholei onek joss,especially the console exclusives] after modding their console,so lack of interaction in forum.

    onek kichhui aro lekha jeto but oigular ar bole labh nai.
    Sobai Bz hoye gese eta true.. Even I am in job for last 2+ years. Still I used to have a habit of checking BG every morning, bt never felt demotivated to check the site like now. Xcross knows well (Can someone tag him... I guess he changed ID). As I frequently talk to him.
    I just want the old reviews of games and content like this... Eta khub e natural, to b sad when I see the post got like "Ami ki dress wear kori or ami sokale ki khai...." most hit...
    There is a Help-General shopping section now.. Okhne keu fridge kinbar jonno help chaile and if its the last post, that will be shown in Last post section of the section. While if there is 2 simintinous post in Dota 2 and WoW, only will get highlighted...
    May b many of u dnt aware.. CvP made another forum for study related stuff.. poralekha.com.bd (Good initiative, I like that one).. That forum isnt full of this kinda stuff.. Than why our beloved BG have to!!!! The size of shopping related stuff make me think there can b another forum for this.. "banglashopping.com.bd" :Welcome home shoppers. @mr_08 , u might b ok with new format of BG, bt I m not.. And there will b many people who will agree with me.

    or put the shop section aside under sub domain. Like:
    banglagamer.shop.com

    There's plenty of new members coming now, but only to buy/sell stuffs and they are spamming the hell out here.

    Like my Facebook page Gaming Newz for new gaming news updates.

    @gogeta , ektu over-react kortesen na?

    Anything will evolve, given time. BG teo tai hochhey. Though true when I joined it was mostly tech stuff and gaming. Nowadays a lot of branching has occurred, esp lots of ppl swarming in for the shops. Still gaming is the core theme and we keep getting back to it. The spread, I think, has made this a holistic forum. Gaming at heart, but also active in other issues. CYCLING, RECENT AFFAIRS, JOKES, SOME MINDLESS THREADS (!).

    PORALEKHA.COM.BD is a very good initiative by CvP, that has a shop section. Given time do u think the shops will bog down the main theme of that forum? Already ppl are plying to sell old books there. Still a good initiative.
