    Yes, simply cuz I'm a bit of a lore nerd and discussing it with other people through the forums would be nice. Either we have our own forum for that or we take up the general forum doing it :P

    So long as it doesn't get filled up with people saying, "Go look it up on wowpedia," I'd be more than happy with a lore forum.

    Nice, 87 yes votes! I would be ecstatic if we could get 100+ yes votes, because 100 people seems like a good amount of attention that could be payed to the 'hopefully' new Lore Forum.

    Moved to S&F, although you can search for yourself in this forum to find all of Bibi's responses to the matter.

    I probably couldn't care either way, but I do still agree that we don't really get enough threads on it to dedicate a subforum to it. We've had a bit of a spike in them recently, but that's only because the newest book just came out. In a month or so, those will die down, and we'll be back to getting 1-2 lore threads every month.. if that. Also, I'm not sure if you've actually read through entire lore threads before, but it seems that a lot of people on this forum are incapable of discussing it without going batshit insane on each other (especially when it involves Sylvanas for whatever reason).

    I don't see any reason for why not.

    We've had a bit of a spike in them recently, but that's only because the newest book just came out.
    And there will be another because the new Knaak(lolknaak) book is released quite soon and a lot of people will start arguing about the nature of Varian. Then there's the Jaina book that has been already confirmed and I doubt it's that far away either in big picture.

    I votes yes, maybe a dedicated forum would open people's eyes for the topic. I'd love to just read people's stuff to learn more also.

    What Elysia said, and what we've said in lots of threads before -- there just aren't currently enough lore discussions to justify a whole forum. There was a nice spike with the book, but it's already died down from where it was.

    If that changes, we can consider it, but there will always be the people who want to come in and stomp on everyone's sandcastles. We can take it off the front page recent posts list, to avoid having people randomly arrive through that, but then the forum dies due to lack of traffic.

    Edit: To give an idea of the scale I'm talking about, in our Achievements forum, which is probably the smallest main discussion forum, we have about 10 new threads per day. I don't think lore threads could sustain even a fraction of that for a long time.

    That's quite a bit more active than what I would've guessed. I would have to agree that Lore would have a tough time competing with that.

    So yea.

    After reading through a bit I guess that Sunshine is right. There would be no use for it after some time. But why not rename the RP forum a bit? This way it just seems like Moonguard's GoldShire Inn on friday midnight .

    it's been asked about 30 times

    Answer has always been no.

    A Lore Forum would not get enough traffic, so Lore discussions just live in general (where they do thrive)

    Yes there should, our only other option honestly is the general forum and that's not really a good lore place, attracts all kinds of trolls and people that don't care.
