Everquest Sub ForumsFollow

Now that we have our forum issues fixed I can look at adding other forums. I know there isn't much posting in these forums so people may not even use a new forum.

However if you would actually use a particular sub forum of the Everquest forums, what would it be? I've already looked into moving our existing Everquest class forums as a sub forum here and it can be done.

The connection was reset

The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading.

The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer’s network connection.
If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

What changed? Not being a jerk, just wondering what changes were implemented that you had in the works.

OK that said,
The EQ class forums were always odd, monothreaded things. It would be a plus to migrate them to a more normal forum architecture. But I wonder if there is still an audience at this point. Before you put time into forum migrations I would definitely look at main forum traffic metrics over the last year of...site crisis.

** no connection reset issue this time **

Ya there is something else causing posts to time out during heavy traffic, I'll be monitoring SQL queries during heavy traffic to see what the issue is now.

I'm wondering about class forums or any subforum:

Might be better to do class-specific wiki guides, with a progression and live section in each (How to play class X @ level 75 on progression today may differ from historical for example).

Then people ask their questions in general forum, get responses and pointed to the class wiki. It's not like topics are jamming the general forum up every day with 25+ valid new threads.

Well the wiki pages already have their own built in forums so they can just use those.

I have been playing on Agnarr for a few months, maybe a timelocked server forum, I have been enjoying the old-school grind but it seems I have to do a ton of research to find spells, songs gear. My memory of those times seems to be horrifically inaccurate ;-).

If more people would post here, I would be more than happy to make whatever sub forum was in demand. There doesn't seem to be much interest right now however. There are forums attached to the wiki pages for the EQ:Progression Servers however if people want to use those. You just pick the server and click on Discuss at the top of the wiki page.
