Arnoxthe1:
You can't get to site preferences?

I can click on it, but it's more or less unusable.
The white box below is where the font size option is.

I can click an arrow up and down (but can't see what number it's on) and hit the orange submit. It'll change the font size like it's supposed to, but it doesn't fix the wonky page formatting :(

OK so try to change the font back to normal or at least a bigger size and then exit and go back into the site. If it's still not fixed, yell at FileTrekker/Noe to fix it.

Well... I made the mistake of changing the font size from within my account settings and now the entire GF site is squashed into a tiny couple of inches in the centre of the screen. I can't see or do anything so I can't undo the change, and the only way to view the site properly is by logging out; the second I log in the entire site goes back to being squashed and unreadable.

I hope others can learn from my pain :(

This is the culprit

body {
font-size: 15px;
}
.header__alt, .footer {
width: 0px;
}
.wrapper, [class*="__container"], .subnav {
max-width: 0px;
}

I'm sure they'll fix it soon but in the mean time here is a fix via stylish

Hmm, is there going to be actual editorial content there? And if so, who is providing said content?

I used to like the GameFront guys, even had some nice brief exchanges with them. But that was in the Before Time. Suddenly they just went nuts, I guess with the exception of Ron Whitaker.

I mean, I thought Phil Hornshaw had smart takes on things. And last I heard, he was sputtering about games "objectifying women" in freaking Playboy. Yes, Playboy. That, and compiling listicles about the ways Bill Maher is Problematic for some gutter rag. It's just sad, like running into someone you used to vaguely know in High School, plying a sordid trade behind the bus depot for the transient market. And that other Phil guy wrote that "book". I hope he found some help.

I'm so depressed now. Everything comes to ignominious ruin, doesn't it?

American Tanker:
Don't even think about it.

What, you think The Escapist is innocent in this?

Nobody on RPS commented on my Yume Nikki thread. They suck!

What a bunch of meanies.

Thanks both for your help. The Stylish script has fixed it :D
I'm glad to know that I'm not going insane and it's an actual problem not just me being special!

If they bring back the Gamefront I remember, with every game series having its own page, with lists of files of every description spilling down the page in multiple columns, with Picture of the Day up the top that anyone can submit to, and people able to leave comments and reviews for literally EVERYTHING...

...then yeah, I'd be on board. Its got a long way to go though...

We have this!

with lists of files of every description spilling down the page in multiple columns

And this

with Picture of the Day up the top that anyone can submit to

We don't have this on the site, cause, it's tough to keep populated. But we have done a modern spin on it and are doing PotD on Twitter and Facebook instead.

You can do that too!

We will fix it ASAP!

Sorry about that.

Ah whoops! We have a VIP only "Site Width" setting which was setting itself to 0 because it was empty. Our bad, I've fixed your account now so you don't need to do anything, and I'll fix the bug which caused it so it doesnt happen to anyone else! :)

FailBook? [email protected]? Really?

More reason for me to stay well clear.

So I joined up because why not, and I've not been sent the email required to verify my account. Email is not in my junk folder either.

Pls to help poor Sassafrass enjoy forums.

Can you let me know the username you used to sign up and I'll have a look into it. Just check your spam for me as well if you can :)

My old Gamefront account doesn't exist anymore... :( Oh well. I'll probably make another then.

Got you covered. You should be able to use our site now. :)

It came down to what we could recover. The content that you will find on the new GameFront is what you saw on our network sites (halflifefiles.gamefront.com, etc...) and not the parent site. They were once two different website and their user databases were never merged and used separate logins. The 'main' site account information wasn't recovered, only the network sites.

Don't worry. It's not that big a deal really. The only reason why I even made it was so the mods I was reviewing in a thread at the time would be available to download to anyone that wanted them. And if they're still there then nothing at all was actually lost.

I'm glad that it's coming back, as it's the only site that didn't suck Bioware's dick during the Mass Effect 3 ending controversy (Take that, Jerry!). Unfortunately my archives of the articles don't match what I see on the site currently. Where's Phil Hornshaw's excellent expose on Firefall, for example?
