[EDIT: The forum's back, in its Invision style...at least for now. But hey, I'll celebrate that! :) -Daniel Benfield (talk) 01:21, December 16, 2013 (UTC)]
As some of you may know, The Game Show Forum (not to be confused with Game Show Follies, despite the similar names and "GSF" initials) was created in 2003 as a "fresh start" after alt.tv.game-shows (ATGS) became progressively more of a frickin' cesspool. The last big thing that ATGS seems to have done is try to combat the then-recently-debuted Donny Osmond revival of Pyramid, resulting in a "I'm doing it my way." "Yeah, and you're doing it wrong." "Up yours." back-and-forth with the show's producer (who was that guy, again?) somewhat like that between ATGS and the jerks behind Extreme Gong…Read more >
Because hey, last I checked this is a blog. :P
Browsing YouTube for classic Price Is Right stuff, I found this video by a user who shows pictures of his profile on Golden-Road.net. The rant is divided into three sections: the win-loss ratio of Gas Money, Stack the Deck, and That's Too Much (begins at :51); the overuse of "designer" prizes on the show almost if not every day (begins at 4:56); and the "fanbois" at Golden-Road, one user in particular (begins at 8:32).
First off, based on what I've seen and read, I really don't think Mike Richards is upset over all the times That's Too Much, Gas Money, and Stack the Deck have been lost. It seems that to him, a loss is a win because of what seems to be a "BIG PRIZE!!1!!1!!1!!!1!1!ELEVEN" mentality …Read more >
Yeah, we're going around this bend again. Twelve days ago, Gameshowsareforever posted this gem of a message to his special "Hate" page on the Game Shows Wiki. The message lashes out at Brandon Devers; Steve Harvey and the current Family Feud; and myself, John, and to an extent this Wiki.
The relevant portions to this Wiki are below, with all spelling, punctuation, etc. kept as it was in the message:

If you've been regularly visiting this Wiki (and if so, thanks for the continued patronage :), you probably noticed the appearance of 41 pictures earlier tonight and their removal by me a little over six hours later.
My watchlist merely showed "Hey, there's been 41 pictures uploaded, some other stuff happened, and there's a message on your talk page." I went to my talk page first, mostly since the person who left it was someone new to the Wiki. The message, which didn't have its own header, was as follows (spelling and grammar unchanged):
hey, Daniel is it ok if I can upload all the board games pictures?, asuming if that's cool with you of course((Gameshowsareforever (talk) 18:22, February 4, 2013 (UTC))
