gamerDNA/Crispy Gamer/etc
So Crispy Gamer bought gamerDNA in the fall. As I'm sure you noticed, the community management is now completely gone. There haven't been any updates to the site, blog, twitter account, etc. Crispy Gamer of course has kept running ads on the network- since that's what they really care about. They basically did exactly what Curse, IGN and other networks do best- buy up good website, gut them for their ad revenue and leave it to become a ghost town.

And then yesterday, the Board chooses to fire the entire editorial staff of Crispy Gamer, and the CEO of CG resigns.

So now Crispy Gamer will have no editorial content, gamerDNA has no development or community management- and the Board has a nice ad network to fill their pockets.

Also, because of the way that stock options work, probably few people were vested for any meaningful amount, which means the investors and board are likely the only ones with shares that matter at all- and of course will be the sole ones to benefit from the ad revenues.

And as always, the board members keep their jobs, compensation, etc

Good job! Way to fuck over not one, but two communities!

Damn straight. You'd think they'd at least release a statement on the matter. Something. ANYTHING.

So, by any chance, is this so-called Board working for NBC as well?

@Dvader LOL

We only have to start worrying about this place if Will Farrel comes out of nowhere and starts singing Freebird.

I'm not a Christian, but I believe this quote from the Bible is appropriate:

"For the love of money is the root of all evil." - 1 Timothy 6:10

Can't think of a better term for what's gone down than that.

What's different for us though? They gave up on the forums a long time ago.

If things don't liven up around here, I may have to give up on the forums as well.

Well what's playing against the forums are the site features themselves.
