    Whether it's the Eve forum or a new one, I support providing this game a forum.

    Posted this in the "Jihad EVE Online" forum:

We had way more posts and probably at least as much board participation when Hellgate: London came out, and it didn't really need to be outside of a general forum either.
    Certainly up to hearing a compelling argument in the other direction, of course. Shouldn't we at least wait a few months?

    I sort of want to just make an "MMO Discussion" forum with Title options allowing people to discuss their games, and throw all of the underused games in there, I just haven't gotten around to it yet.

    A seperate forum for Rifts or EVE doesn't really make sense we only just have enough traffic for the WoW forum. When we push games into their own sub forums I worry it actually harms thr chances of other players noticing folks are playing the game and joining up.

    While we're collecting complaints, please move the General Gaming forum to the top of the gaming category already. What's it doing at the very bottom with the ARCHIVES taking the top spot?

    It would just be an incredibly simple SQL update.

    Excellent work, but you worked off of Dmitry, who seems not to know the name of the game he's slobbering over. It's Rift, not Rifts. Changethetagdude!

    Haha, working on it, already got called on it a few times :P

    edit: done. The funny part was, I made it with "Rift" then I saw the thread and thought I was wrong, so I changed it to "Rifts." The unique ID for it was still 'rift' though :P

    I did have to run through the database to update people who had selected it as their Primary MMO.

    You kept calling Dragon Age "Dragon's Age", too, so at least you're consistent

    I logged into the beta for a bit and realized it was WoW without the good parts. So I logged off.
