Seperate TMW Player-forum

Post by Modanung » 09 Jun 2005, 21:25

Could we please have a seperate forum for TMW players? (clandiscusion and such) I can't stand the useless verbal clanwars spread through the serious development discussion. I'd REALLY like to have a seperate forum that I can easily ignore completely because I know there's nothing interesting for me when I see there's a new post.

Oh and sometimes the forums don't seem to remember which posts I already read and which I didn't, maybe this has got something to do with Firefox' tabsystem? Or is it a forum bug?
Or something with Microsoft ofcourse, always a possibility when you're using windows. :P

I have the problem too, it seems to be a problem of phpbb that it doesn't notice that you have read a thread when you open several at a time

I've experienced the same issue. It seems to be a problem with the forum software and/or configuration.

I think focusing on the game is more important when the forums work fine...

but a board(s) or forums for players would be good so its not all together... since its early 1 board or 2 would be fine for now.

Looks like the Player Talk section is immensely popular :) Although what if we seperated to a new phpBB installation altogether and spread topics across many boards, just to cater for needs in infrastructure expansion? If we don't do it now, we'll have to do it some time soon...

My opinion: one has to have a special developer / contributor / "trusted user" status on the forums to be able to post into the development forums.

Yeah, old topic, but the amount of useless opinions has increased lately. (This is not bothering me, the fact that is bothering me is that it will only increase in the future, acting in advance could be nice. Also at some point I'd like to make the content development a closed section in order to be able to surprise the players.)
This message used to be meaningful.

Rotonen, have you ever read "The Cathedral and the Bazaar"?

Wikipedia article:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cathedral_and_the_Bazaar

Online version
http://www.catb.org/~esr/writings/cathe ... al-bazaar/
  • former Manasource Programmer
  • former TMW Pixel artist
  • NOT a game master

Please do not send me any inquiries regarding player accounts on TMW.

I had and I can't see your point. The article talks about spotting bugs and correcting them, not about content development -which falls more into the opinion area-.
For bugs correction the bazaar aproach is ok and there is already the bug/support & suggestions subforums, but for content development I agree with Rotonen.

this topic is very important but off topic at this place. I opened a new thread about it:
