    MMO-Champion World of Warcraft Lore sub forum section

    I have no idea if this has been done before, but I thought I would ask the General Discussions,
    would people like a Sub-Forum just for Lore discussions?
    I have noticed that Lore posts pop-up frequently. So would people like a dedicated lore sub section forum ?

    There's a reason why I've played every Warcraft game, read most of the books, read some of the comics, achieved loremaster, and am exalted with the lore walkers.

    I <3 lore.

    I want this so badly, but sadly the head mods deemed it not "needed" and not "wanted" enough.

    I know that our opinion means crap to the Blizz Devs
    but maybe this can be our petition to the Forum Mods
    at least that is my hope anyway.
    Debating Lore is my favorite thing to do on forums

    OP is talking about adding a lore section to MMO-Champ's forums, not the battle.net forums.

    It doesn't mean crap to the Blizzard Devs.

    So don't make this thread into a "Hater vs Fan" debate.

    OT: I would love a sub forum.

    It's come up a looootttt before. The usual answer is that if enough interest warranted it, it might stand a chance.

    Moved to S&F anyhow.

    In all honesty, while I can easily see how a lore forum might not get as many viwers as let's say, GD, I'm still in favor of it, I think it would be nice for a couple of reasons. It would keep GD and Lore discussions seperate (Good for both parties). Add a bit more organization to the forums (Lore stuff tends to get buried the minute it's not the first post on the front page, everything else gets buried under lore, it seems, when lore is the first post on the front page.)

    It's not the end of the world that we don't have one, but it would be a welcome perk.

    I would probably spend 90% of my time here in such a forum. :P

    I think it would be a good addition.

    As long as there's a lot of threads that are active, I'd say it's possible I guess.

    From the FAQ:

    Yes, we should've had a lore subforum ages ago. There's plenty of interest if you see the amount of lore threads being made in the general discussions, and easily reach up to 20+ pages.

    I personally see value in it. There aren't a whole lot of places where lore fans can pool numbers what with the story forums being region-specific.

    If it did happen though, I'd rather it not be a "replacement" for lore talk in gen too. Like on the official board, it would be better if a lore section was simply a more "focused" area for the lore and story, not somewhere to funnel each and every story-related query into.

    Like we've said before, there's not enough interest right now. Instead of saying that you'd post if there was a lore section, go out and post and discuss now.

    If there's enough activity on a daily and continuing basis, we'll think about making a lore forum (and same with any other new forum).
