Also, hasn't the URL been like this for quite some time? Why the poll now?
Because traffic has dropped quite severely since it switched from futuremark.com/forum to yougamers.com/forum.
If it increases traffic to the forums, isn't that a bigger positive on ad revenue/advertising your product? FM was hardly into making games; only really since SH and the casual touch games has FM been more focused on the gaming side.
When there was only madonion.com and futuremark.com forum, I had the Remote Control open at all times during my work at the office. Since the yougamers.com forum, which is blocked by our company, I can't access it anymore.
Since yougamers.com, I lost almost all touch with the latest games and hardware updates, since I'm not getting updated by the forum members on the FM. It used to be a huge knowledge base.
To bad it's the way it is. I only check RC in the evening for 10 minutes and the leave FM forum.

Of course you don't. You have much less stuff to moderate.
Gamershq.madonion.com was the URL I used to type in to get here back when I joined, I think it was the compare URL for 3dmark scores as well. Either way, it may be beneficial to remove the word 'gamers' from the url so our office members can get here still during work hours.
This is horribly short-sighted. How is opening up your site to larger traffic with very minor changes a bad thing? The fact that no FM people have responded gives off a very poor vibe, it also may explain the current state of their business. Listen to the community we are right.
Edit: Mute, the first two sentences are for you. I know you aren't an FM employee.
