Irongamer already has a superb thread doing just that.I think Ancient was being a little unfair to people who are responsible for the fansites and the podcast. I don't disagree with information being a little more organized on Trion's end. H***, it's a good idea and something that I think will be more prominent when the game is no longer pre-beta. However, taking it out on the wrong people was the wrong move in my opinion. I'm aware that Ancient is one of those people who are uncompromisingly blunt. I'm very much the same way and if he chooses to hold that against me then that will have to be his cross to bear.
I just bristled when it turned to the fansite operators being culpable in what Trion does because the first official word on friggin' beta came down through channels other than the forums or the official site. Whether that was how it was intended or not, that's how it looked in the original post. Kitty cleared it up very nicely, but that doesn't mean that the original statement was never made. That's the part that I took issue with. Aside from that, I'm in favor of a central hub on the forums and think it will appear once beta has started.
For those who want an absolutely concrete consolidated information hub on the official forums, why not start compiling this information, verifying it, and posting it up for all to see? Getting it stickied shouldn't be an issue if it's well done. That's just a suggestion, but it may be worth looking into if anyone's feeling particularly ambitious.
And remember: It's just entertainment, folks.
