I’m talking about your statements that they will change how they’ve been treating Eberron for decades, and that keith’s views are irrelevant to wotc
I don't see any reason that WotC's grand multiverse plan would exclude Eberron just because its creator (who has no creative control) doesn't care for metaplots, which appear to be a cornerstone of WotC's plan. WotC certainly didn't take Weis and Hickman's wishes into account with their plans for Dragonlance.

What? Has anyone here said anything even remotely close to this?

Also, WotC has changed how they've treated all their settings in the last few years. Eberron isn't special in that regard.

Eberron was pre-Tasha's. That's as good a dividing line as any, and one that people often use, not just me.
Wait, Eberron being pre-Tasha’s means that it will be changed by wotc needlessly to be part of a multiverse? Eberron already is a part of their muticerse, it always was, as Baker told us in the post I’ve linked. Eberron can appear in anything, that does not need to change how Eberron works at all.

I understand that they’ve changed a lot of settings you’ve liked in ways you didn’t like, and that you don’t trust them to take care of their own IP. But your take is as much an opinion as mine here, please don’t treat it as a fact.

Ok, based on what WotC has revealed about their future plans, in my opinion Eberron is not immune and will likely be sqeezed to fit just like everything else. WotC has a corporate box to fill, and they don't care about their IP beyond whatever money they think they can squeeze out of a bunch of nostalgic proper names without getting social media up in arms about it.

You are entitled to that opinion, and well… if that ends up happening for some reason, we still have kanon to go by.
