    Default New Items Released Resource Sticky Topic?

    Is it possible or would it be a good idea to have a sticky topic for when new items are released that people can post pictures of them with descriptions etc...so that when people are inactive for a few weeks or months they can come back and look at all the new items in order that have been released and how to obtain them?

    And I know someone may just say go look at one of the 3 or 4 Fan Sites but those are not exactly made for that in that way and would be easier to have such a sticky topic.

    ***Edit***
    What I mean is a topic strictly for new items. The fan sites have multiple posts and do not always have all the new items. For example vendor items etc. It would be good to have a single post to see ALL the new items released without having to go through a database or incomplete list etc.

    Each of the websites are great at one thing. For example one has a good database but this sometimes lacks pictures and all items. Another has great pictures of most new items released but lacks vendor items sometimes released, and others are great for news and touring etc...but there is not just 1 site that is set up to show you all the new items in order with pictures and descriptions etc and a simple forum post with a picture and brief description is easier than requesting anyone to change how they do there own website. Something that the community could simply post replies to on the forums of new items. Including new vendor items that may go unnoticed and people may not realize have been added to the game.

    For example if someone leaves the game and misses multiple content releases it would be very difficult and time consuming for them to figure out all the new items added and a simple forum topic would allow them to easily check in order by the post dates for them to get back into the game again and find the new items they may want to use much more efficiently.

    It could easily be something that anyone could reply to the topic and post pictures/descriptions of new things as released and the main thing is your able to go back and look at the forum posts in order to see what all you have missed by the time stamps as this is the most time consuming for any player returning to the game and anything to make that easier for those to get back into dimming again.

    The information is out there. Those fan sites are done by dedicated players and are very very time consuming. I don't think it is too much to ask that you search them. The sticky topic would not be organized the way you want either.

    Silence, there are times when it speaks volumes.

    Just a suggestion.

    Yea,.... it's time consuming for the fan site operators and other players that test items to figure it all out too, hehe.

    New Dimension Items are listed on the Dimension Addicts website. This is the best resource to determine how items are acquired in the game.

    Other sites Dimension Touring Company and Dimension Gallery will often supplement with articles about what we learn is to be released, to give players a heads up but not completely spoil it all.
