    They are doing the right thing IMO. Take for example the SWTOR official forums. They were opened 3 years before the game's release. In that time it became one of the worst video game forums of the internet. A wretched hive of scum and villainy.

    I've never seen a good official forum for an mmo. They all have been cesspools. It's one thing to have constructive criticism but most of the whining is overblown and baseless.

    That could apply to any video game forum. Just saying, you can't really give two shit about that vs. having a centralized place as a company to convey information and duologue with customers.

    I support having a centralised place to publicly communicate with ANet and have open dialogue. I think it's a good idea.

    Perhaps, although I never go to forums of single player games (except perhaps support forums if I have a technical problem). It would be nice to have a centralized place for official communication but I know exactly what the forums will end up like. With that said, sometimes class forums are pretty civil and you can get some nice information from those. But I've never seen a decent general forum.

    Guru isn't offcial, however Anet posts there, combined with snowflake moderators, its the best forum you will ever get to your standards.

    Yea, I hear ya. Kinda have to not care about that. It's 2012, it's the internet. Deal.

    I don't mind Guru. Other people seem to have a big problem with it. Meh, can't keep everyone happy I suppose.

    Guru is the worst forum I've ever experienced to be honest others say not.

    But it seems if you have an opinion that is different you shouldn't post there. The labels you get given due to it an insane, for example people were labelled as paedophiles today in the TERA thread there for not thinking that the Elin in TERA are like pre-teens sexed up, then they call them fucked in the head for not seeing it their way. I also had to argue with a mod to get those posts removed which I thought was ridiculous.

    So its ok to label people on a online forum as pedophiles for liking a cutesy small race?

    Guess that means liking female asura makes you a pedophile too.

    I guess liking a full grown women with breast makes people a pervert too?

    There's quite a difference between not agreeing with someone and labelling people as something for not thinking the same way as you.

    I hope you're not the person that labelled everyone as that over there.

    It's nice until they sell few million copies and 10% go to forums. It would result huge spamfest where same topics repeat over and over because previous post of that same subject was on next page. I would prefer they utilized wiki more. Like Izzy used to be quite active on GW1 wiki (Here is one example). Also on wiki discussion doesn't die because topic got dropped to page 2.

    Never had problem with guru myself, but I hardly ever go there anymore except gw1 guru when I want to sell/buy/trade something, but since GW2 will have market place I guess I wont have much reason to go there assuming devs who balance skills visit wiki once in awhile.

    The problem with Guru is they are a fan site and a middle man. Checking out some tentative patch notes on Guru or clear line of communication from the devs on a some fansite is the opposite of good.

    Really, I can't say it enough- it's 2012. It's the internet. Deal with it.

    What are you talking about? I didn't say what the user said was fine. People have different oppions, If that person wants to rant and say ridiculous stuff then let him get banned. A whole site shouldn't be judged because a few people said some random stuff about a certain game.

    Personally when i see threads about a rival game i try to ignore it, I'v learned my lesson with replying to threads like that. Just causes arguments. And No i'm not that user, I really don't post there often. I just check for updates and such.

    That person was a moderator, he can't get banned.

    Reading at its finest.
    Excuse me? He/she could still be removed from being a moderator. Also Instead of judging someone on there reading skills why don't you simply explain how you feel about the situation without freaking out.

    Both you and i and everyone else here are the future of this Community, lets not start any unnecessary fighting.

    But he won't, that's the point.

    You can't read emotions on the internet, nobody can. I am not trying to start a fight. My point is Guru has a history of un-fair moderation. That mod isn't being removed.

    If you decided to read the first sentence of someones paragraph post and make a post off that, im sorry I can't teach you to read.
