You visit a local museum that claims to be free of charge but has an obnoxiously large donation box practically blocking the entrance. Do you:

  1. Toss in $10 knowing that running such a little operation costs a lot in upkeep.
  2. Toss in $1 just so you don’t feel bad.
  3. Blow through the gate jiggling the box and knocking a few bucks out of the coffer, pick them up and pocket them on your way in.

  One Response to “Episode 43: Server Group Forums?”

  1. I enjoyed the podcast as usual. Great job! My take on the changes to the SWTOR server forums is that we will be grouped at a high level according to server type (PVP, PVE, East Coast, Europe, English, German, etc.). A level below that there will be something like 6 servers of the same type grouped together in alphabetical order (e.g., 6 PVE servers, East Coast, A – C). I think Bioware is not giving us exactly what we want (a forum for each server), but a middle compromise to see what forum activity is really like first before possibly committing to the next step of individual server forums. I think Bioware has concerns about being able to moderate over a 100 server forums and keep the trolling out. This way one Bioware employee can be responsible for moderating say one group of server forums all in one place.
