    So being the nosy f*ck that i am ive realized something that bugs me about these forums because the OLD cc (seeing as i am a player from the 2005 area of the game) the "off topic" section seems a little demeaning because its like saying "here's our game forums" then "here go talk about the stuff we don't care about" where as the old website used to be focused on the forum community, And the people who played the game hard core (but most of the times they are the same people) what if you had four sections like you do now for the forums

    the cyberconnects section can have all the announcement type stuff so announcements and updates for both games using a sub-forum of sorts for each game r1 and r2 and just general house keeping stuff you feel should be in that tab

    i think the "off topic chat" should be changed to something more fitting for the community and higher up so people don't have to scroll down to actually use the forums for their general every day stuff like talking to friends posting artowrk/fanfiction ect.

    the world R1 section should keep most of its forums but move apkallu to the hopefully soon to be renamed "off topic chat" and delete announcements as you will be using a general area in the cyberconnects section for it

    i would say you don't really need a R2 section at this point until it actually has some sort of physical being and you could just tease people with the announcements sub forum on the cyberconnects section

    this is just me i see that flowing a bit better (this threat isn't as composed as well as i would like it to be, but im getting ready to go out so i had to type it up fast)
    ive always been nitpicky about stuff or how stuff sounds (with my band, and the podcast) so it would make sense that if the little things get fixed it would make people a lot happier

    anyway this is my two cents

    Lol a long post deserves a descriptive reply, I'm on mobile atm so I'll type up a good one when I'm back at my house in a bit.

    I second the moving Apkallu thing. I know that in the franchise the Apkallu board was for .hack fanart, but let's be honest- it was in the general forum in the old CC for a reason... people are pretty crafty and have a lot to show that isn't just related to the franchise.

    After consideration, "Off Topic" has been renamed "Community" and the Apkallu has been moved to the new category

    Okay so we agree with almost all of that, and they are very good suggestions so thanks for that.

    First: We're renaming 'Off-topic' to 'Community' and moving Apkallu to Community.

    Second: We're going to keep the R:2 Category because its good for people to ask questions and post suggestions about R:2 and some people may only be interested in R:2 so having separate announcements would be more beneficial for people wanting to sort through one or the other, but we'll se how it does and may change it later.

    Hope you guys enjoy the changes!

    Having a section for R2 early also lets new people arriving on the forums that we are developing it as well.

    Not only that but keeping the section allows for gradual preparation of the R:2 forum before the release, as opposed to having to post up and organize threads all at once, and having a sudden onslaught of questions and announcements vs. gradual.
