    I think there needs to be a clan discussion forum where clans can make their own threads, to keep it out of the General chat.

    While we are on the topic of new forums, a tech support forum would be nice too. Lots of "help me" threads drowning everything else out.

    Then we need additional moderators or any structure like that wouldn't work.
    Because people will continue to post their tech problems on other forums anyway.

    SMNC only had 2 active moderators and a giant handful of idiots. As long as the community is on top of it, keeping each section clean, it shouldn't be that much of a problem. This was also back before Garat was on the Uber team and the forums actually had little to no moderation. Now with Brad and a full (fuller :D ) mod team it shouldn't be that much of a problem.

    +1 to this.

    Would be helpful.

    I'm sure there's people here that would be willing to moderate. (like me)

    I would also like this. It would help us distinguish clans and also help them coordinate their efforts. I would be willing to help in any way to get this working and functioning well.

    yeah the hit rate for the correct forum isn't great even with the existing forums, no telling what would happen if one would create additional targets. ;)

    +1 I admit we've added our fair share to this. We were kind of 'born' here but it has annoyed me that it messes up the forums. I'll admit that for my part... not that there's a whole lot I can do unless a mod takes it on board.

    Brad would probably be the man to inform about this small but important thread.

    Ikon Gaming uses XenForo for our website so I know all they have to do is create a new node. It takes 20 seconds tops. Lets get it done Uber!

    The thing is that just created subforums isn't enough, yes it'd be nice to have a Tech Support Forums, but let me tell you why we don't and likely won't have one until release.

    Because there is already a place for posting BETA related things, the Beta SubForum, and yet people still post things basically everywhere BUT there. Frankly I don't expect to see a Tech Support forum until we're done talking about Beta stuff, which won't be until Release Day.

    Even then as already said, having more forums to organize things doesn't help unless you can make sure the threads end up in the right place, and Users can't be relied on for that so far. So Uber either needs a bigger/consistent forum presence or more moderators and/or letting the moderators do more.

    ^^^they need to train some mods who are passionate about the game and start getting things fixed on the forums, so we can have a Clan node. Someone with half a brain can move a thread on a xenforo site. It's not rocket science.

    I've suggested adding more sub-forums as well. I'll see what Brad thinks. The Community here is wonderful and we want to continue fostering it, so we'll make sure it's the right decision before implementing anything. :)
