I’m old and cranky, so it goes without saying that lots of things annoy me.
One of those things relates to how both the old and new forums are currently active. With people posting in both places, the conversations get diluted.
I’m sure there’s a reason, but I can’t figure out why the old forums have been kept up and running. Anyone know when they plan on shutting those down? As far as I’m concerned, the sooner the better.
And I’m sure they would have done the following if it was easy (or put alternatively, I’m sure the following is more trouble than it’s worth), but wouldn’t it be neat if they could have migrated all the old forum threads (or at least the more recent threads) into the new forum? Searching for old posts is going to be a pain in the A.
Also, why not migrate character information (for instance, the number of likes received on the old forums - or even better, a character’s posting history) into the new forums. I spend a lot of time in the Market Discussion forums. Information like a players posting history can go a long way in avoiding getting scammed. The “clean slate” offered here in the new forums will likely be appreciated by the scammers though!
And now for a totally unrelated image (because I can)
