    Default Rift Junkies Think Tank Private Forums - Any Mage Interest?

    I'm not very familiar with the mage community, but I would like to offer this to the community at large.

    The other day I created, with the help of others, a "private forum" which I call the Think Tank. Essentially it's a highly moderated forum where people can theory craft and discuss changes. When I say private, I mean that your account must be flagged before you can get in. Anyone can gain access, you just need to send me a PM on the Rift Junkies Forums.

    Now I don't know if the Mage community would like something like what I put together for the Rogue and Warrior communities, but it seems to be gaining popularity in the 2 days it's been up and running.

    If the community wants some like this, speak up. In order to make it up, I'll need someone to volunteer to moderate it for me. I really don't know the ins and outs of the Mage Calling so I would need some help on the front making sure the forum is running on track.

    So would this help the community? If so, post here and let me know what you think.

    Absolutely. I was actually going to send you an email to see if you could set one up for mages after hearing about the rogue and warrior forums on Riftception.

    Just find me someone who will be an engaging and knowledgeable member of the community to be a Moderator and we'll get her up and running this afternoon/evening.

    That would be a great idea if some mages with good knowledge would shoulder that responsibility - i for one would certainly use it for discussion.
    I'm very important. I have many leather-bound books and my apartment smells of rich mahogany.

    This is a great idea, and I think mages need it more than any other class. Mage rotations are much harder and therefore there is not much discussion going around and the people who have figured out good rotations and builds usually keep it to themselves. I will definitely be keeping an eye on the site!

    Sounds great, Draegan. I've PM'ed you on the other site already. I hope I did it correctly, heh

    Moderate posts, do not moderate access.

    Theres no reason to keep discussions secret, only productive.

    Agree with this. Make it read only, but public. I love to read about theorycrafting, im just too bad for it to participate

    Due to the nature of the project, I am requiring that your account be flagged before entering. What this does is separate those who want to be involved and those that don't want to bother. As the community grows and stabilizes where there is a good crew of people over there I will fully open it to everyone. This could take a few days or a weeks, we'll see how people respond.

    I'm still in favor of read-only access for most people.

    Due to popular demand, these forums are now open to the public.
