Greetings, glorious adventurers! If you're joining in our Alpha One spot testing, please follow the steps here to see all the latest test info on our forums and Discord!
why do we have a forum
So I know this may seem very petty and pointless to some of you, but I wanted to ask the devs/mods where is the suport for the forum. Since ashes started all of the updates and leaks are on the discord, and we rarely see anything posted on the forums unless a member posts them (thanks USE) or a mod in rare cases. All of the alpha time updates are displayed on the discord and never the forums, I don't mind having it on discord but just mirror it on here as well.
The main reason for this post is what is the point of questions threads if you never answer them and I don't just mean skipping a few but today you skipped the whole thread that your mod made. I know that discord is faster to update but why pay for a tool when you never use it?
This is another reason why I wish some of my KS funding went straight to @UnknownSystemError.
Honestly aside from the occasional moderator post or the very rare Steven post the place is basically ran by the members (USE).
Hopefully this will change when they launch the new website/forums.
We need to remind him!
...Too bad i asked a lore question and it was never answered.
I think that with Discord having the functionality it does forums like this are becoming less relevant. When my guild started using Discord it pretty much killed our guild site and we shut it down 2 years ago.
CM opens questions thread 4 days before livestream.
CM closes questions thread 1 day before livestream
CM deletes all the bad questions, repetitive questions, in appropriate questions and questions that have been answered 539,394 times.
When someone sees their question has been deleted, it will be reinforcement to not ask bad, inappropriate, or previously answered questions.
Also a new forum solution is desperately needed. Vanilla is awful.
Get IPB or Xenforo (the one I use on my AoC website). Or if you really need to go for a free solution, at least use the best one: phpBB.
I will keep positive though as it could be that my.com are a lot more interactive on their forums. Making more of an effort because they have a great deal to prove to the European community before they are trusted.
