Revamping (no pun intended) the forum

Discussion in 'UO Warrior' started by Chaosy, Sep 9, 2009.

    I'm finally getting around to do what I've been wanting to do. The FAQ's and stickies in this forum were congesting the rest of the discussion so I decided to get rid of them. I hope no one cares, as they were full of outdated and mostly useless (by today's standards) builds.

    My goal is to update the stickies with current builds that will be updated consistently. If anyone has any insight or suggestions, please feel free to post here or PM me.

    The FAQ's will likely be updated as the only one that's entirely comprehensive is the Bushido guide. If anyone would like to write up a Wammy guide, please let me know (*eyes Lynk or Connor or Farsight*).

    The sampire guide that Lynk wrote up is now posted and stickied and will hopefully circumvent the corpus of sampire questions that come up in the forum. I posted a link to the original thread in there as well for historical value, however the builds in that thread are out of date as well due to the form changes and thus the thread was unstuck.

    Am I in the minority in wishing that we'd only have one big sticky that would cover everything? I'd find it much preferable to four, or six, or eight, different stickies.

    I like how the crafter forum has a "Data Chest" sub-forum. Maybe all of the template and guide threads could be sticked in a special warrior sub-forum that the average use cannot add new threads to. And then you put one sticky at the top of the Warrior thread with the forum rules and directions to check out that area. I personally dislike more than one or two stickies at the top of a message forum, even though the information is usually really helpful.

    Just a thought.

    I agree but that would take redoing the stratics forums, which would be up to the admins. If they did that, other forums might cry as to why they don't have a FAQ subforum. I'm redoing it like this because having 4 or 5 threads stickied is much more preferable than having the 10+ that were there before, not to mention most of the information in those threads are heavily outdated.

    I also forgot to mention that the 2 ninjitsu threads will be combined, and the archery/warrior FAQ's will be incorporated into the template guides.
