a 1.09 forum?

a 1.09 forum?

Just wondering, is there any chance of a 1.09 specific forum, or at least a previosu patches version. Just think it would be nice, since theres a classic forum, but nothing designed for 1.09.

Note: I moved this thread from the Pal Forum to the SPF. - AE

You're probably just talking about single player. I don't think you can play any other patch on Bnet. How many people do you think play anything other than 1.10 on a regular basis?
 
Not sure exactly how many people play. But maybe a forum on 'previous patches' would be better. I know it wouldnt be that active, but considering that the general strategy forum has 0 posts since the forum split i think that its ok to have 1, considering that 1.09 and other patch details are very hard to come by, with most sites dropping all old stuff and only really focusing on 1.10.

Seems this would be a slice of the SP forum. Do you mind if I move this thread over there Bob? We could discuss alternatives for keeping previous patch information more available.

We'd certianly get fewer, "why am I not getting synergies?" and "what exactly is 1.08 good for anyway" threads.

Sure, move it wherever, just posted it here since i know admins check it often.

The General Strategy forum is no more. It was closed do to inactivity and overlap with the Community forum. I suspect it will be removed from the list once Elly (or whoever would make that decision) thinks the message about it has been up long enough.

You, mayhap unintentionally, gave the perfect counter argument to your point.

Anyone here have reactions to farting bob's idea? How might we give better access to 1.09 information?

In my opinion, it's a waste of time.

There's not really a big 1.09 community right now, and even if it spawned a larger one, it would be only Single Player Specific, not to mention(not to offend) but it would bring about a lot of people who want to just use character editors and play the game like they used to for kicks, and would cause issues with the current community of 1.09ers.

From what I can remember, people who still play 1.09(From time to time) are:
Myself
Icebird
D2Addict
Timinator
Ryondaahl
Phylogen
Jbbto
TrenShadow
Solanaceae
King's Spectre
Gohanman

Some of those names, as far as I know, are really only playing 1.09 in the "Holdouts" over at the GO. Not sure how many members(maybe 1 or 2 from that list) are over at Mil's place and play 1.09. The community isn't that large, and while it would be great to have a larger community to trade/interact with, wouldn't it put more of a burden on you guys(AE and Krem) to have another community set to look after and keep maintained, picking out and ensuring legitimacy?

Overall I think it could be great, but it would be rough to maintain if the current SPF/SPTF moderators would be running it, not to mention it would be something that would probably have a very small set of visitors.

:p

Just kidding - that's taken way out of context

Anyway, now that I'm done pointing out the foibles of others my input is this:
Sure, why not? It's not like it would put additional strain or costs on the hosts. I might even read it once in a while.

Even though I play only 1.09, I don't see the need to for a new forum. A sticky perhaps, but I don't think there would be enough posters to make it viable.

1.09 questions can just as easily be posted here.
The problem with this is that often the answer you get is upgrade to 1.10. :D

Maybe we should be like the trade forums.

[L] ISO: xxxxx
[NL] ISO: xxxxx

Instead, we have:

[v1.09] I got 100 Enigmas, I'm not a hacker!
[v1.10] I have an archon plate of the whale 'JahIthBer' but it's not an enigma! Why!?
[v1.07] Omg my valk helm sux, doesn't have the +skills!
[v1.07] Omg my eth zerker is hacked, it deals so much damage!
[AV] Single Player Forum Rules (it's a pun)

AV - All versions

Edit: Ideas from Serdash. See next post.

You forgot:

[1.07] I started playing 1.07 again. How come 'players x' is not working?
[1.09] I started playing 1.09 again. How come '/players x' is not working?
[1.10] I just started playing 1.10. How come 'players x' is not working?

I think it would be sufficient to make an FAQ for each of the more popular previous patch's. Because it's mainly the same question that get asked.
