Hands on: uberVU, an interactive inbox for the conversation

David Chartier writes: " "The conversation" about content on the Web broke free from the comment form a long time ago. As people are increasingly discussing stories across Twitter, Digg, Flickr, and more, uberVU is perhaps the first tool to take on the ambitious challenge of collecting all this chatter into a single, manageable dashboard."

Is this a concerted effort to drive people away from N4G? Two lots of ads posts on top of each other in a short space of time. Doubled-up. Alongside obtrusive video and banner ads. FFS. This site is going to lose everyone but the most die hard. Or force adblock use. Maybe that is the intention here where N4G has struck a deal with adblocking tools/designers?

After N4G sold to BGFG it’s become clear the site will never be the same. They push their own videogamer.com propaganda non stop. People should team up and start a new gaming site like how Resetera was born after the Neogaf fallout.

Been using Adblocker for years. Those ads were bad back then. I don't even want to know what it looks like these days. They did this to themselves.

Sort your shameless advertising out N4G. It's sickening.

Wintersun6161d 7h ago

Can you fix these ads showing double on the front page? It smells like amateur in here.

If there is an alternative site plz let me know 😏🤫. This is getting out of hand.

Palitera1d 9h ago (Edited 1d 9h ago )

Looking for suggestions too.

I'd suggest a few, but, honestly, it's better if this community is kept here, "away from society" lol

Tacoboto1d 7h ago

It's more than just this ad spam; the admins' biases manipulate the actual news too.

Any time Phil says something, multiple articles make their way through so that we here go into the comments and complain about him/Xbox. Ad revenue, fuel from the console war.

Any time something major happens with PlayStation, mods go into full force. The Jim Ryan emails from the FTC hearings - buried. Articles failed for being duplicates; the one article that made it through to the front page didn't mention Jim Ryan's emails in the headline.

Jump to Jim Ryan suddenly announcing his plan to retire this week - same situation. Every single article from every outlet reporting on it could be seen in the Failed list. The one headline making it to the front page, did not include his retirement in the headline but was worded "New Management Structure"

Because this site swings so favorably PlayStation, they deliberately flood us with opportunities to slam Xbox, but *actually moderate* when any news comes out that's not positive for PS.

So you think this community is awful, it's because they are and have been manipulating how we get to see the news.

"So you think this community is awful, it's because they are and have been manipulating how we get to see the news."

Good thing you are aware of this and still here to enjoy all the entertaining negativity.

franwex1d 3h ago (Edited 1d 3h ago )

I too would make a suggestion, but the Sony fanboys/ anti-Xbox brigade can stay here. Don’t want the infection to spread and this site confirms their bias anyway.

I have literally seen mods ridicule comments for subbing to a service here too.

RedDevils23h ago

Xbox fanboy with their excuses. Have you ever notices same things happens with anti Sony articles too? It comes in waves when there Bad news as well. But of course you couldn't see it.

I browse N4G on iPhone using Adblock and it blocks all these ridiculous ads. Sucks that one of my favorite gaming sites has gone this route.

Use uBlock Origin browser extension you will have no ads at all. I also use Enhancer for YouTube, for no ads ever, preset your own resolution in the extension before watching any video as well.

purple10116h ago

Enhancer for YouTube sounds good thanks for the tip.

I got a OnePlus android phone but a MacBook Pro also

Can you at least approve the actual news when you approve one of these? Hyenas has been cancelled and I've seen that everywhere else but here so far.

oIMyersIo2d ago

Which is crazy given there was a closed beta recently and they just pumped out more trailers.

Seems like a kneejerk reaction as the game seemed almost complete.
