I added it to see what could come from using it. If it seems useful, I'll seek The Mana World approval for it.

I do think it would be a better place to direct all the drama.

It does look like it would work out pretty well there. I suppose the use of reddit and the other social media could be our new goal...move player chatter to polite facebook and google+ or to the cesspool on reddit...maybe not cesspool, but the reddit would have the loosest of the moderations, I believe in how we want to use it. By moving player discussions away from the forums, they can be transformed into game administration and game development forums and have a stricter moderation.

Am I getting this right or do we have other visions for how we might go about this?

I've joined reddit with my Big_Crunch nick. I'll be happy to moderate it if whoever is doing it now doesnt feel like it.

A problem we have with it acting as the player talk and such did in the past is the lack of quick image hosting. I'm interested in TMW continuing to offer image hosting for TMW player discussion, but want to have it offered not on the forum. Maybe the wiki?

We could also get an imgur, which could work for a lot of the promotional images, but not so much the players, unless they also used imgur...but that could be the solution.

Half the time the player community doesn't even upload stuff as forum attachments anyway.

I'm not convinced the lack of images is a bad idea...
