Gern (one of our readers) has suggested that maybe a forum would be a good addition to the site. Seeing how many comments we've been getting since BC went live, I tend to agree with this. I also know that forums which cater specifically to WoW tradeskills are woefully inadequate, so a useful home for us crafting weirdos would really be a good thing.
I've been talking with my developer hubbie 'Mikros' about how we'd make that happen and it looks like Wordpress doesn't have a forum option, although they have a separate software package that we can install on our own server. So we're probably going to go that route, but it may take a few days to set it all up. We'll do our best to make the transition between sites as seamless as we can for you guys.
While we're working on that, I thought I'd toss the baton out to you (the readers) on what you'd like to see in the forums. Not necessarily features, that will be dictated by the software we end up using. I'm thinking more like the structure or arrangement of the forums.
My first inclination would be do have a separate forum for each tradeskill where people can start threads about topics relevant to that skill. There's also the question of specialties... do they need their own forum or should they just be lumped in the forum with their parent craft? This is your chance to tell us what bugs you about the current sites and suggest what we should do that will make it easier to hone in on the information you need. Obviously the top priorities will be separate areas for each major profession and a search function that actually works <phhht Blizz> Other than that I'd like to hear from you about what you think we need.
