A few people are working on the basic thread topics right now which is why this isn't an advertisement, but rather for some critiques. That also being said, we're aware of the fact that it doesn't have many topics and messages, we won't be advertising this for a while.
We have the website and the forum linked together, so joining one will join both of them, GameHandout is a news indie blog that also gives away games quite often. We made the forum to turn it away from only being a news blog, into a community as well.
If anyone wishes to check out the site, and give me some basic feedback on everything but the activity on the forum.
