Not even a soon™? I love it! :P
If I'm not mistaken this thread has been hidden by the admins.
Only people who've bookmarked it or posted to it before can find it now.

They don't want people to know :O

Not to rain on your parade, but it was literally the 4th or 5th thread after the stickies.

Kind of. The thread list is apparently ordered by last reply. When you found it there were only 11 minutes since flamming_python had posted, so you got it close to the top of the first page.

They on the other hand were replying to a thread that had 19 hours of inactivity so maybe second or third page. But yeah, no reason for the conspiracy theories if they just couldn't find it. Gog has better stuff to do with the forum than code a secret functionality that makes threads go missing for anyone that doesn't know the secret handshake.

Of course. After my reply, it ended up second after the stickies. There might also be a problem finding the thread through the search feature, which does not end up filtered solely by time of last reply (relevance is also considered), but I find that usually such problems come from the use of the wrong search terms.

The search feature is way too unreliable to be considered as proof of anything including flaming_python's assumption that Gog was hiding this thread. They've been randomly "hiding" threads for years regardless of subject or content :-)

Gog y u no fix serch?

Nope, I honestly could not find it and still cannot - 1st page, 2nd page, 3rd page, whatever

But maybe that's because it's pinned to my "Favourite topics and received replies" section instead at the top

Well, yes, topics you pin won't show up in the regular list too.
Will the mixes return, with all existing mixes restored? There's no comment from a GOG staff member since the early reply:
As for the mixes, we're still in the teething stages of the redesign, hold tight.
I honestly forgot about them, but now that I've been reminded, I'd like them back.
There are some games on GOG I found through mixes that I would've never found; I don't want to go through pages and pages of games.
Aside from the definitive "games that treat GOG customers as second-class citizens" list my personal favorite was TotalBiscuit's "definite list of strategy games": https://web.archive.org/web/20180711205755/https://www.gog.com/mix/totalbiscuits_definitive_list_of_strategy_games

UPDATE: You must copy the URL manually, GOG removes the archive.org domain from the address.

Just found out about this being removed. It was in many ways better compared to steam. One of the functions i really liked. I wont find some of these without it so this function will be missed. Stopped buying from steam because of poor anti consumer decisions. Would hope gog will not make more decisions in this direction.

Removing a loved/liked feature for the sake of its flaws is not going to make a community (or me) happy.

ChrisSZ: Some GOG mixes which were clearly "lists of shame" caused trouble with some publishers.

Removing the GOG mixes is just consequent considering that GOG has become less and less user-friendly in the recent years.

reifnotreef: At least it's not the Epic Store.
Let people upvote or downvote the list. I have seen tags removed from steam so people made a curator just to find games. This is not helping though. As for epic i dont need many of the functions on steam, gog navigation isnt the best and if they manage to get the roadmap for this year done both steam and gog will have to step up their game. Mixes really helped and except for the not polish tag i have not seen anything really bad.

RichardUPickman: As for epic...
I really do not appreciate the Epic store exclusives they are doing, esppecially Borderlands 3. I do not want to start buying from yet another digital retailer, I already buy through Steam(not anymore though) and GoG and sometimes Humble.
Mixes like "Games that treat GOG users as second class citizens" were really good for detecting anti-consumer practices from a glance at the store page. I have to wonder if this isn't part of why they have been removed, years of work maintaining those lists flatly deleted. Simply to please publishers and keep buyers confused and buying multiple copies.
