This means so many things for us all-- big changes, new faces, and much, much more. Whether you are a forum regular, a returning veteran, or a completely new player, we want to ensure that your forum experience is a good one.Just like RIFT won't require payment before you can hop in and play, the forums won't require you to be a Patron or RIFT Owner in order to enjoy the forums.All players with a Trion Worlds Account in good standing will be freely able to read and post in all areas of the forums!We know this means a huge surge in numbers for us, and are aware of the challenges that come with that increased activity: we've been actively preparing for it.The Community Team and I looked at the forum's current layout, and wondered how we could best prepare for new traffic, without altering the core experience of what our posters were accustomed to. We came to the same conclusion: it's time to restructure the forums. As is, the main forum page leans towards being too cluttered, and a few key subforums (namely, RIFT Guides and Strategies) are buried. Hard to find or highly specialized subforums see less activity than the broader, more general ones. Some are nested too deeply, and so just don't show up on the average poster's radar.We want help reverse that splintering, and we aim to do that with some changes to the forum's layout.The new organization of forums heralds a cleaner front page, and a sleeker experience for everyone involved. Below the text of this post is an organization chart detailing the new layout. As always, feedback is always welcome and appreciated.Thanks,~MorganaAttachment 11081
