I guess they've decided, we have enough idiots posting on the forums, who'll notice a few more?

Hopefully some of them will migrate back there from here.

One of the things I always liked about DS was that you couldn't post images & videos in the posts. Obviously that's changing...
A few years ago, I would've said allowing images was a good thing, but nowadays it's probably going to result in the place being spammed with memes and animated gifs! Mad

And we all know how much DS hate using memes and GIFs. Oh wait...

The forums are now read-only... they didn't mess about! Wonder how long it'll take!

The racists and licence fee bashers must be tearing their hair out right now, not being able to post.
Hatton Cross and ETP1 Forever gave kudos

Main site is currently borked as well, they must be making changes there too. Blank front page, erroneous redirect on the TV index leading to a 2001 ratings article, and 404s everywhere else except for the forum.

It's the first time I have looked at the main Digital Spy pages in years - usually it is just a couple of the forums I go to.
Those front page stories are not really of any interest to anyone are they?
Or is it just me?

Clickbait headlines and animated GIFs basically

Really curious to know what software they've gone for.

I'd love to be a fly on the wall wherever the migration is happening. It could get very messy with a forum that large.
