After half a year I’m checking out the Lotro forums. As it turns out it’s good I do that. I just discovered a lot is going to be changed. The forums itself are going to have a work-around as Sapience just posted.
And the entire site is going to be set up differently. Important things:
- Forums will stay, but will be re-organized
- Lorebook will be discontinued. Well, with Crafting Tier 8 introduced more then half a year ago and no recipe to be found of tier 8, I don’t think it’s such a loss on that part. Unfortunately thoug, this also means cplayer created guides will disappear. Now that IS something I will miss. I hope people who created the guides will be able to download them, cause there were some excellent guides.
To those who have created guides: Please, please, please download them!!!
- Current Blogging functionality will be discontinued. Well, I never was able to use it do to all the problems, so no real loss there.
- Character and Guild data will be discontinued. It seems loads of people are upset about that. Perhaps it’s because I’ve never really done anything with the data because I keep my character in an excel overview, that I don’t really see a problems with that. But apparently it’s a big thing for kinship leaders and people who play in the Ettenmoors. Okay, I am a kinship leader (The Craftoholics), but I don’t see the asset of the info on the site. Maybe I should have digged deeper into the subject.
- The Lotro Referral system is going to be revamped. I wonder what that will bring. I truly hope Facebook or Twitter won’t be the main systems for that, because I hardly use Twitter and Facebook.
- Lotro Lotteries are going to be changed too. They will come back though!
Well, all in all it may be good, but I’m not sure. I think I’m going to see about these player created guides. Perhaps I can somehow download or copy them, at least for my own convenience and reference.
Have fun everyone!
