I honestly feel that a lore forum would gather as much interest as some of the other smaller forums on the site, for example the Sports forum. There are certainly plenty of us out there willing to have a nice discussion (or rant) about the direction the story is taking in the game. I understand that the lore threads work well enough in WoW and MoP General but I feel that a dedicated lore forum would be warranted. For example, I know there are people out there who aren't remotely interested in the lore of the game and just want to kill things. For those people separating the lore topics in their own forum is an instant reward as they can simply ignore the forum in their settings.
But new forums aren't made to segregate the community, they're created to keep the site manageable and simple for users. Being able to look specifically for threads dedicated to lore would be of benefit to myself, and I'm fairly sure I'm not the only one who would benefit. It would also reduce the number of threads in the gen discussion, making the job of moderators that bit easier. Feedback would be much appreciated.
