    Anyone else think that this poll is rather leading? i mean one of the options is 'Change for the ''better'' ' what makes it a change for the better?

    I think you should edit the first post to make it apparent that the changes include not only moving around the trading forums but also abolishing the seperate OT's.

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

    Let's face it, this is the entire point of the thing, isn't it?

    It also abolishes the Server specific general-but-on-topic forums. Unless the heading 'Excal' is itself a forum as well as a grouping of other forums?

    General-on-topic is normally where the server-wide non-rvr-whine issues go.

    Put the general-on-topic forums back under each server, or reassure me that they are already there, and I'd vote for this.

    Off topic forums I'm not remotely fussed about either way tbh.

    id like to see the forums layout same as bw for ease of use which we are all used to.

    not particularly bothered about the server off topics.

    The original DAOC link posted was not really a good example in my opinion. Better would have been:

    https://forums.freddyshouse.com/showthread.php?t=1464

    where Loxley gives us a thoughtful and provocative discussion regarding the forum titles, or perhaps:

    https://forums.freddyshouse.com/showthread.php?t=1521

    where we have a sensible discussion taking place regarding people arguing in their newly created IRC channel, I summise.

    Fact is Pez, alot of the guys in the general area will spam from time to time, but they don't manage to do it with the same day in day out consistency we see elsewhere. Don't worry, those doing it in the general areas get warned in the same way as anywhere else.

    The first thread you quote was posted just after the titles changed, and yes, it turned into a thoughtful and provocative discussion. The second is what I consider a very important matter.

    Just read through it to find the thoughtful and provocative parts... only there were none.
    I would agree, except that it's actually being joked about in this thread, and when one person threatens to report people for being racist people just make fun of them.

    Sorry I only read page one for the purposes of this thread... perhaps you mean page 3?

    Last page is interesting also:

    Not that I'm usually one for stepping in the way of DAOC 'debates', can we please not do the "my forum is more childish than your forum" routine, please?

    Hate to be a spoilsport Jupitus old boy, but there have been three new threads in the past three days in eOT, and many active threads we have are quite a few days old. If that's spamming with a day to day consistancy then you are even more biased than I first feared.

    Jupitus you moron, tell me why when DAoC players post something along those lines it's a crime against nature while when a generalite does the same you wont even batter an eye lid?

    I agree that things seem to have settled down a bit over the past few days, which is good. I am sure, however, you will understand that that is not truly reflective of how things were prior to that, which is what people will have based their opinions on (along with the behaviour exhibited previously on BW also, I would expect).

    It is true of past behaviour too. You do nothing but attack the DAoC forums Jupitus, I don't not know why.

    You are sucking out all enjoyment of the forums.

    No hes sucking all the enjoyment out of the forums for you Lox & a few of your buddies. I'm sure not that many of the DAOC community really care what goes on in EOT they just avoid the place. Why should there be a forum for you and 5 or 6 others to post your conversation about nothing on?

    Why shouldn't there be? :p Seriously, just don't read it.

    So that the other DAoC forums are on topic silly.

    Why isn't that DAoC "General" forums though, cos I'm sorry but having read it a few times the contents between it & OT don't seem that bloody different they just tend to do what happens in the main General forum, start out on a subject & wander off into the distance

    So what your saying is if they remove EOT you'll just spam the same shit you've been told not to spam somewhere else?

    Where you gonna post after your perma ban?
     
  28. Arindra

    Or people could just not spam either in eOT *or* in the on topic forums.

    Personally I admit I'd never bothered with the off topic forums. But I'm not exactly sure why Excal and Pryd would need different ones?

    The only things I can think of that are off topic for excal but not off topic for Pryd forums would be things-that-happen-on-Pryd. Which I imagine the Pryd on-topic forums are designed for?

    /shrug.

    I'm happy whatever happens to the Off topic forums.

    But I'm still concerned that the new plan seems to drop the server specific on-topic general forums?
