    Useless sub forums

    https://www.mmo-champion.com/forums/338-Rift is a prime example. Why is this taking up forum space? What's the use? We have one active poster there who blindly follows Rift (who has been confirmed to work for Trion), and people who are critical and unsure about the game.

    I like reading the forum to keep up with the news. The poster in question may blindly love Trion, but nearly every other poster blindly hates him and immediately attacks him for posting even anything remotely positive.

    However, the forum did bring some good conversation about Rift Prime. I don't see a reason to remove it unless it was a drain on resources.

    To be fair there are quite a few dead or barely active sub forums.

    As I said in the Rift thread earlier. I imagine it's because back then they thought the games would gain more ground which they did initially.

    Although if I recall they do intend to tidy up the forum at some point but it's a low prio thing.

    Don't play the victim card for someone else. That's just low. And copy pasting any form of news is hardly "positive". It's neutral at best. And considering how the person in question acts towards anyone remotely critical are you expecting people to sign his praises?

    If you act snarky towards people presenting valid critique then don't be surprised if over time you end up being disliked by posters.

    But anyway this has nothing to do with the topic at hand so I'll end it there.

    The topic at hand is sub forums that barely have any activity. There isn't much point keeping them around imo and better off converting them to a Megathread. Other games recently were Megathreads because while games like Rift/SWTOR gained ground early on they failed to keep it so the activity became nonexistant.

    Eventually we may clean up those forums, but they are at the bottom of the list and aren't hurting anything for now. They were a lesson about adding subforums for new games when people request them.

    What forum space? How is it affecting you at all? You're not making sense.

    My sig of someone else gave you an opinion of my post? Yeah okay. If you didn't like my answer then look at the actual admin's post above mine. He says it doesn't hurt anyone. It's a pointless complaint.

    There's no gun to your head forcing you to go to the rift sub.

    At least it is not as useless as Politics, people still post in GOT, and once in a while we might get a mod to move them. This is done from forum regulars all the time.
