    But if someone is looking for everything BUT 5E, for instance?

    I guess you'll then have to check the topics one by one. But the system is still being worked on.

    I think the net result of this is that discussions about anything but 5e will simply be driven out.
    You like that OSRIC and AD&D have different forums? To me that's a prime example of splitting up forums for an arbitrary, superficial reason, rather than actually thinking about how best to facilitate discussion amongst your users. And that's not even to mention crazy stuff like Lejendary Adventures having its own forum.

    You know if you look at the New Horizons forum, it produces a lot of posts but not actually that many threads. Most of the high volume posters hang out in big, rambling 20+ page threads.

    If we can somehow convince ren1999 to keep all of his posts in one thread, we should be fine I think.

    Agree. These are different games. The only merger I think would be a good deal would be Pathfinder into D&D legacy since it derives directly from 3E's rules. Of course others might read more into that , assuming somehow the move is meant to say '4E isn't part of D&D's legacy'.

    Agree.

    PF is an active, publishing game, not something that belongs in a legacy forum

    Before going on about disasters and threads being pushed off too quickly, just have a look at the combined forum example Morris made, and you'll see that this is not the case, as stated before. Oh it may happen every once in a while, but it is not like page 2 is out of reach.

    I have mixed feelings on one hand I don't like have to going to several different areas just to talk about the game. A lot of what we talk about is edition free. And so I think it could add to the discussion with more people contributing. For example DMing issues, player issues things like that are of interest no matter what edition you play.

    I am a little worried about 5E threads drowning out everything else. Maybe one way to discourage that is to combine threads that are basically discussing the same thing. The last time I was there, there were five different threads basically discussing magic.

    Also as posters we are going to need to resit the urge to make snarky comments about editions we don't play and resist telling A DM looking for help that if he switched editions he wouldn't be having said issue.

    Sounds pretty good to me. I click on all the forums and don't often see new threads go off the first page. I'd be nice to see some more interesting traffic.

    Only thing that stuck out to me was calling Pathfinder out explicitly. It's just another D&D, doesn't need a separate description.

    Not a bad idea, and the reasons make sense. I support it.

    Works just fine this way at RPG.net, without sortable prefexes. And the sort function will be nice. Trying to find OSR stuff in the Legacy forum is usually a pointless endeavour.

    What happens to the "General" forum?

    Disappointed that editions are being merged into one giant forum if there is no way to filter only the threads you want to see.
