    edit: Sry about all the dots. Lost my formating in post and was quickest way to fix. Hope it makes sense ;)

    The changes mentioned here include not only moving around the trading forums but also abolishing the seperate OT's.

    You probably want to put code tages around that, since the whitespace just got eaten.

    I could see the spaces in the floating preview thing, so I knew what had happened. You did cheat there though.

    This would be far more logical than the current setup. Might help increase trade too.

    looks better and more sensible...

    but will the excal and prydwen subforums show under the Daoc main folder like they did on bw? (but in the new layout)

    Actually it seems quite the sensible idea considering the amount of shite and spam that get posted in those particular sub-forums.

    If you do not have realm forums then it will be a nightmare to organise events and discuss realm specific matters. I know you like to randomly attack anything I say but unless you have a point don't post.

    The layout has realm specific areas and then sub forums in each for trading, or are you referring to having no realm specific OT areas?

    That was precisely the reason the seperate server OTs were created, so that the main Off topic forum did what it was supposed to do.

    Though that was the old BW way of thinking, working around the spam. Now it seems to just be ban the spammers ;) So I suppose it wouldnt be a problem anymore, still it would take a bit of getting used to, so I've voted no.

    ... I prefer to think of it as a 're-education in the use of IRC' ;)

    thats the reasons forums exist jupitus, so people can check it now and then without having to follow a full speed irc chat.

    however you believe a post every few minutes is too much.

    dont mix us with the prydwens please, im sure they dont want us anyway.

    Wonderful, a mmog has created a virtual life so advanced they've developed racial hatred.

    I'm actually agreeing with k9.

    I also feel that this vote is biased as people who do not even post in the DAoC forums, let alone the actual OT forums which are going to be most effected are still allowed to vote.

    No different from the hate the general lot have for the DAoC community. Anyway, this is besides the point. If you are going to just take a jab at us every chance you can then please do it in another thread (that goes for all of you lot! :p).

    I can understand wanting to remove the seperate off topic sections, but Im curious as to the logic behind removing seperate server general forums.

    I would laugh, but that was funny in no way, shape, or form.

    Cock.

    I can understand the logic in getting rid of Prydwen OT. Because that is simply full of crap and hardly anyone ever posts there now anyway.

    But getting rid of a forum as active as Excal OT, no matter how much you dislike it, is just not right imo.

    I voted 'NO'.

    The forums are fine as they are.

    The Excalibur off Topic forum has always been a place for 'discussion' of the baser kind, as well as spammage on a grand scale. However, with decent moderation spammage is controlable.

    As for the type of discussions that take place in any forums, well that should be up to the users themselves. I believe that over-enthuisiastic modding on the part of Jupitus has inflamed the situation in the DAoC forums, where perhaps a more restrained and mature approach would have worked better.

    This is your chance to shape the forums around DAOC.

    Come up with alternatives etc. Discuss.

    As for non DAOC peeps having the right to vote, I can see who voted as can you.

    The individual servers still need General forums really - as the rvr forum used is strictly for whines about zegs, stealthers, dragonfang, and alarm clock raids.
