    I believe there is some room for improvement of the UO sub sections on Stratics.

    Today we have a Factions sub section, but Factions is no longer available. This forum has not seen post since 4 months ago. Perhaps its time to hide this one...

    PVM and PVP are two large areas of UO - still they do not have their own sub forums.

    One could argue that the Professions- and the Shard- sub forums could be used to cover different aspects of both PvP and PvM, but it would not highlight general areas.

    PVP discussions are often placed in UOHall, which is probably due to higher monitoring. The downside is that non PvP:ers get involved in these discussions, which often leads to a broken discussion.
    I am not saying we should limit the forums to a certain player style, but rather filter out different areas for a more focused discussions.

    PVM discussions are not that easy to filter out at the moment. For example, I want to search what players normally hunt to get Legendary loot, or I want to read about the experiences players have using various sets of luck... etc
    I found two threads in Uhall, Farming Legendary Artifacts and Just Cleared 2000 Luck! Need Some Suggestions which is great, but I had to search for it using keywords.
    I think PVM is such a large area of the game that if should merit its own sub forum area.
    We could have UHall for General discussions, socialising etc, "Monster Hunting" for PvM, "Player Combat" for PvP (replacing the old faction sub area) "Homes and Castles" for deco devotees etc.

    PvP discussions eg = PvP Balances, Suggestions, Flaws, Rewards vs Risk discusssions, Feedback etc.
    PvM discussions eg = What monsters to hunt, Effects of Luck, Strategies for Bosses etc.

    I always wondered why there wasn't a PvP forum, unless they wanted to prevent flame wars to take place.

    I have seen many PvP and PvM specific posts in the professions forums since there are many who have experience in those areas, but only in particular professions...which makes sense...la

    This is one of the things the admins are actually working on. Currently they are trying to streamline all of their website info. Once that is done i believe they are going to be doing a lot of work making sure all of the forums and sub forums are as efficient as possible. These suggestions will only encourage them to keep working hard, Thanks. :)
