    But, as Boubouille has said in the past, we're not 100% focused on World of Warcraft, so perhaps I shouldn't be too surprised.
    Arlee, along with the site devs, worked together some things so that we can have proper tags for the TOR patch notes on this forum. *Whether or not that leads to more front page posts, remains to be seen. *I don't think it will though. *I think that the large nature of the 1.2 update warranted the front page post, but I don't think it will become the norm on MMOC. *That is just my opinion though.

    Would love to see the trend going on , keep it up mmo champ! I am forced to visit other sites with the state of swtor attention atm and i hate that. Mmo champ is and remains my favorite forum destination!
    GJ!
    Personally I don't like it. Mmo champ is a wow fun site and I don't care to see SWTOR news in the front page. I mean SWTOR players have their fan sites (like Darthhater)

    I think it's a good thing actually, we're all MMO players here. I think a little bit of additional information on other MMOs once in a while is a good thing. It's not like we don't already put up the weekly MMO Report. I would agree that I don't want to see every little thing about SW:TOR on the main page, but with something as substantial as 1.2 I think it's a good idea.
    Beware the Terror of the Deep...

    It peaked at almost equal during SWTOR launch, and now it hovers around a quarter or a fifth.

    Yeah, slow news day.
    Not for nothing, but it seems kind of like a self-fulfilling prophecy. Maybe if they put it on the front page more, traffic would go up more.

    I'd like to see what the numbers are for these few days to see if being on the front page helped increase traffic here.

    Darthhater contains about as much useful information on SWTOR as CNN.com.

    Sadly forcetremor.com and oldrepublic.net are vastly superior

    These were pretty much the same thoughts I had when I saw it today.

    Personally I think its kool!

    Why?

    Because I love SWTOR? No.

    Its because even though I dont play WoW anymore and will probably never play again, I dont feel completely alienated at a site Ive been coming to for years. I dont expect to see regular postings on the main page, but its obvious MMO-C isnt going to turn a blind eye to exciting events in other successful games. I go to torhead, darthhater, and forcetremor for game info. I come to MMO-C to interact with gamers of all platforms.

    I don't think it is that sad that those sites you listed are vastly superior. There are several great sites out there.

    Well it's sad in the sense that Curse gaming bought out DH and it was supposed to be huge. It panned out. Forcetremor is vastly better imho Good work on it
