    [Merged] D&D forum renaming thread

    Okay, so I have noticed the forum reorganization that changed the 5e forum into generic D&D, and changed the old games (1e, 2e, PF, SF, etc.) into PF/SF.

    Which makes things pretty weird, like the Keep on the Borderlands thread now in the Pathfinder forum, and so on.

    Any particular reason for this new weirding?

    Forum Reorganization .... Woah!

    Just a change of names so far, thats all. I was worried about awesome D&D articles like the Jim Ward column getting the eyeballs they deserve.

    Ill see how it goes for a week or two while the mandatory reflex reactions settle down.

    D&D forums have merged?

    This is confusing. Is there a way to tag the 5e threads automatically so I can filter for them?

    Unfortunately, it appears they have merged. Hopefully this horrible idea will be reversed quickly.

    Also Pathfinder/Starfinder has been pulled out to its own forum.

    I wonder if the multiple editions of D&D being under one forum will be confusing? Also, I wonder if we'll see more edition warring? (For example, if I post asking a question about 4E - my preferred edition - will the 5E fans come and harass everyone?)

    I agree, this is a real pain. I just suggested awarding Inspiration to somebody playing 3.5.

    I wouldn't mind having the non-edition-specific threads in common, but I don't want to see threads specific to previous editions when I'm here to talk 5E. And I dare say the folks playing those editions would rather not be spammed with 5E topics, either.

    Yeah, I had already posted something in meta-forum.

    I try not to instinctively dislike something (because change is hard) but this ... not good.

    Oops, I didn't realize there was a meta-forum. But I see the thread has been moved, so it's all good. (Plus, anyone else in the D&D forum who's confused can see the placeholder and go to the right place.)

    I'm guessing .... not good.

    I would make a suggestion, though. I agree that the Jim Ward column is super awesome and everyone should read it. And that the (old?) 5e forum got the most eyeballz.

    Maybe just cross-post it to there? Is that possible?
