Please stop with the Mountain threads.
They do not increase readership, it deteriorates readership.
This is specifically prevalent with different monster/hunter concepts. Currently they are being merged into a Monster threads with absurd lengths. New readers will NOT read all 600+ posts in a topic to ensure that they are not reading previous functions.
HOWEVER, the forums have a built in detection for similar topics, when a topic is being made, and advise the reader to check out other topics with similar idea’s/concepts.
There have been several threads, that have been shut down due to the excessive server-load. I can start creating citations, if needed. However you only need to see for yourself, Read one of these threads from start to finish, and you’ll feel what each person that wants to join the discussion has to do.
Not to mention, that each separate concept/idea does not receive individual attention.
Yes, i understand that there are times when this is appropriate, such as during patch releases.
The idea is:
If something is a new concept/idea or deserves a discussion (such as monster/hunter concepts) then leave it be.
If something is already being discussed in another thread (such as patch notes or that a specific hunter/monster is op), then merge it and call it a day.
If a post, provides no insight or opinion, and is being discussed elsewhere. Just close it and move on.
Btw, you all do a great job, this is my only issue and i see it repeatedly.
