I could not find an answer to this.
Are there going to be Server forums and class specific forums for HS & Launch?
Are the forums going to be reset and restricted to paying customers only?
What is the timeline/plan for the forums.
If this is covered somewhere - I apologize ahead of time as I couldn't find it.
I sincerely hope they wipe General Discussion, the class forums are generally less crap-filled. But there are so many QQ threads right now in GD it's ridiculous.
Ya why not. A forum reset couldn't hurt.
They have Tera answers archiving support questions so I don't see why they can't move everything that exists right now to another archive area the way the older CBT posts were. However, as the move from the old to these new forums demonstrated, everyone and their uncle will just remake all the old posts ad nauseum, and a month later we'll be back to this point.
If the search function worked correctly for sub forums and people were aggressively encouraged to use it (I realize the create thread function now tells people to search Tera answers) there might not be as many duplicate threads but that wouldn't stop spam or trolling. I've said before people often use forums as a mini-game when they can't play the real thing and will RP and PVP on the forums, as well as troll chat.
