I see EA is planning on offering a subscription service to access their games catalogue on Xbox One (no news about whether this will eventually come to the PS4):
At only $30 a year the price seems pretty cheap, so figure there must...

I haven't been following the news about Destiny very closely so when I got a chance last week to play the beta (Xbox 360) I figured it was my chance to see what all of the hype was about. Before I went into the game I had the impression that it was an open world RPG/MMO/FPS hybrid but other than that I didn't really know what to expect.
The beta starts out with a tutorial mission that r...

I wanted to see if there is someone here that can confirm that Office 365 works offline. How has your overall experience been?

My never ending suspicion that my wireless sucks. All i know is that my iPad is a hell of a lot faster if I disconnect it from my wireless. I ran a test using my iPad and here are the results. Can someone tell me what it means? I attached a screen shot.

The best part of being a member of DBBQ are the friendships and camaraderie we enjoy. We really are a close-knit group of people who actually get to know each other instead of just being random people you play games with online.
When you have a chance please start a new thread in the Welcome section to introduce yourself and tell us a little bit about your gaming preferences and interests. I promise you'll be welcomed with open arms and starting a new thread helps insure that you don't get lost in the shuffle of new threads being created.
Thanks for joining us!

Hello everybody! I just wanted to take a quick minute and say a few things about how the site is doing and where the site is going. Some of you may have noticed some subtle changes (nothing too shocking I hope!) and might be wondering what is going on. Well, this administration prides itself on transparency so I’m going to tell you.
First, you might have noticed the Google ads section on the right-hand side of the site. I would love to keep the site ad free. I was going to set up a new amazon affiliate account but amazon does not allow “forum based sites” to participate in that program any longer. This effectively destroyed the one, fairly non-intrusive way I had to generate revenue for the site. I have a few things that I am looking at doing like creating a mobile app or mobile version of the site along with a few other ideas that may cost some money. If I can recoup some costs it would be great. So I am experimenting with the Google ads. I’m going to try to find a place and configuration for them that hopefully isn’t too ugly (I’m not really thrilled with the side banner as of right now). You might see them move around and change size/shape. I apologize if this detracts from the site at all.
Next, I’ve added a section across the top of the home page called, “Featured Articles.” This is a permanent parking place for posts that are important enough that new members should have their attention drawn to them and old-timers might want to review as well. They could be announcements, tips on how to use site features or if someone writes up a good review or opinion piece it might get put there for a while. The “Recent Topics” sidebar is great but once a topic stops getting replies it slides off the bottom. This new section at the top provides a place for posts to remain highlighted for longer periods of time.
I might add a similar section specifically for game events. The “DBBQ Highlights (Events & Reviews)” sidebar on the right is pretty far down on the page and doesn’t get a lot of attention in my opinion. I’m not sure exactly what I want to do though so you may see things move around a few times over the next few weeks. I don’t want to change the layout too much or make the site hard to read. I want it to have a natural flow, so I’ll be playing with these ideas. Nothing is permanent and they can always be changed or removed if they aren’t serving the intended purpose.
In connection with this I just wanted to remind everyone that you do not have to be an “Event Coordinator” or a moderator or have any special title to organize and post game-night events. The tools (Events Calendar and post event form) have been provided for everyone to use so they can get their game on. I will usually post events for games that I actually have but if you have a game that isn’t getting any love, post about it, set up a game night (even if it’s on the same night as another event) and get something going. If no one signs up at first, keep trying. It’s just the nature of the beast that people won’t always jump on board the first few times if the night wasn’t right or whatever. Just keep trying. The site is as much yours as it is mine. I am working on a way to push the forum calendar to a Google or Facebook calendar that would be incorporated into the mobile app/site so that our events could be accessed from pretty much anywhere. This means your events would get more publicity so please post as many events as you like. Throw crap at the wall and see what sticks!
The current list of “staff members” is really long and has honestly become more of a “veteran member” list. I will probably be cleaning this up to reflect only people who actually put in a lot of time populating the site with content and will be removing a few people from the “staff” list. Please don’t get your feelings hurt if you are taken off the list. I don’t want members to think that only staff can organize events and I think reducing the list to just a few people with specific responsibilities would help clear this up. If you are worried or would like to discuss, please do so in the moderator forum.
This post got long quickly so I’ll stop there. I’m looking into other things but I can talk about them later. This is enough for now. As always feedback is welcome. If you have any comments, concerns or anything, please discuss them here. I hope everyone is getting something fun from the site and hope that we can continue to make it better together!

To add another layer of interaction between the site and your various gaming platforms I have added a mod to the site that allows you to put your gamer tags in your profile. Once again access your forum profile through the following menu selection.
About half way down you'll see some more fields to enter your gamer id's for whatever platforms you might be using. Unlike the fields at the bottom that just display your gamertag in text, these fields generate an icon that is displayed under your DBBQ avatar on posts like so:
Clicking those will open a window with your gamer card for that system and links to more info on your gaming activity for said platform.
I hope everyone enjoys the added functionality and remember, if you don't want that info displayed on the site simply don't fill in the fields and nothing will change.
Special thanks to MadFriar who helped me out getting this installed!

I'm not sure if everyone is aware but after you create a game night or event you have the option to post it to the SMF Calendar. There are 2 ways to do this and it would be huge help
1. There is a "Link to Calendar" button at the bottom of the page after you create the event.
2. There is also an "Additional Options" button during the creation of the post you can use.
I'm trying to get all the events posted to the main page calendar (which will eventually be linked to Google Calendar on the main page if I ever figure it out) but for now I'm using doing it manually by looking at the SMF Calendar.

We all love our game nights so we thought we'd do quick video showing how to post an event up to the calendar. It's pretty easy after you have done it few times but for those new to posting events it can be confusing. We hope this helps
