We're not going through that again. That's what probably crashed the server.

As I prepared my proposal outside of these forums, I still should have a copy, so I will post that later today and we can go from there.

I think it was the RPGWatch anniversary UK meetup, weren't they to meet each other the end of August?

They want us to forget all about it, hoping we'll never inform how it was. They probably smashed each others head in, either that or lackblogger and lost fell in love.

This is the version I have locally for the proposed new structure. I think it is the same as the last one I've posted:

Games forums
  • News Comments
  • Role Playing Games
    This has the following sub-forums:
    • Games Reviews & Comments
    • Bethesda
      • Fallout 4
      • Skyrim
      • TES: I-IV
    • Bioware
      • Dragon Age: Inquisition
      • Dragon Age 2
      • Dragon Age: Origins
    • CD Project Red
      • The Witcher 3
      • The Witcher 2
      • The Witcher
    • Larian Studios
      • DOS2
        • Divinity: Original Sin II - RPGWatch Fundraiser
      • DOS
        • Statue for RPGWatch
      • Divinity 2
      • Divinity: The others
    • Obsidian
      • NWN 2
      • Pillars of Eternity
    • Piranha Bytes
      • Risen 3
      • Risen 2
      • Risen
      • Gothic 3
      • Gothic 1/2
And it contains the threads that were formally in General RPG, Indie RPG, Kickstarters , Drakensang, Previous Fallout Games and General Forums. Also the game threads from off-topic go here. As do the game threads in off-topic
  • JRPGs
  • Non-RPGs
  • MMORPGs
    • MMORPG Marketing
Supporting forums
  • Expeditions
    • Viking
    • Conquistador
  • Deep Shadow Games
  • Tactica Maiden of Faith
General forums
  • RPGWatch
  • Off-Topic
  • Tech Help
  • Polls
Rants and World Views
  • Politics, Religion and other Controversies

Myrthos,

Currently the Pricewatch thread is sticky on 'General RPG' forum. But since we post prices and discount from all game genres (not only RPGs), do you intend to leave this thread 'as is' or will you move it to 'Off-topic' forum?

Pricewatch is already in the RPG forum righ tnow, so it will move with it. And it does say: "Also the game threads from off-topic go here.". It actually says it twice
Changing to NWN series is an option. I don't know about the Deus Ex series. Are there more with interest in that .

I still think a developer thread is a good idea. Something like MMORPG Marketing, but for single player games.

I think I expressed myself poorly in my previous post. I made a question when I should have made a suggestion. I will rephrase my suggestion below:

<ahem>

Myrthos, may I suggest putting the Pricewatch thread in 'Off-Topic' forum, instead of 'General RPG' forum? Because we post prices and discounts from all game genres (not only RPGs) and also since "prices & discounts" are a slightly off-topic subject, given the nature of RPGwatch web site.

My response was to porcozaur.

The thread can go to various places, but it is about games, so in my opinion it should be in a games forum.

No sub-forum for InXile (Wasteland 2, Torment: ToN)? That's as CRPG as it could get.

And no Mass Effect sub-forum for Bioware?

And shouldn't there be a complete "Other RPGs" sub-forum, for any RPG that doesn't fit the dedicated company sub-forums?

I don't like the subdivision by company, but maybe that's just me.

I agree. Categorization by franchise would be better. Like:

- Banner Saga
- Deus Ex
- Divinity
- Dragon Age
- Elder Scrolls
- Expeditions
- Fallout
- Gothic
- KOTOR
- Mass Effect
- Neverwinter Nights
- Pillars of Eternity
- Risen
- Shadowrun
- Torment: ToN
- Wasteland
- Witcher

- Other WRPGs
- MMORPGs
- JRPGs

By franchise we end up with a lot more forums on the front page. So, we end up with what we have now, but with more forums in the games section.
And when they are inactive for too long, they end up being merged into General RPG.
