This is a fansite. Wich is awsome because you are not restricted by anything. You know what i mean. Get all the scans, all the screenshots and all the information in one place, just a main tab on the main site.

This is 1. a good way to get more people on your site, wich you probably want and 2. a good way to keep up with information regarding the game. if you can establish a community here that is quite active you can actually get a knowledge base that is far greater than any official compiliation, because it can include more or less illegal content, such as the original game informer scans and the scans from Gamestar.

Also you could, after the Gamescom have links to leaked videos, and there will be leaked videos because this is gamescom and there always are.

Ive seen you did take quite a bit of time to create this site so it would be a shame not to include a knowledge base of all things TESO.

Thanks for the suggestions!

I'm definitely taking these into consideration and I'll try gathering as much information, scans, and videos as I can. Especially the Gamescom stuff when that's out.

How do you think this information should be displayed or sorted? I could essentially create some pages of information, or it might be easier, and better, to simply do it in the form of topics. One main, stickied topic with links to the more specific stuff.

Either way, I'll see what I can do about gathering as much info as possible.

yeah the thing is a thread is still kind of shitty to navigate. The best thing would be having a main tab on the Homepage that directs you exactly to ALL the knowledge we have, probably broken down in easy categories such as screenshots, videos, lore, gameplay principles and so on.

Makes sense. I'll start working on a template for that now. Hopefully I'll have a healthy list of stuff right after Gamescom, but I'll begin compiling stuff as soon as I can.

Tecca another suggestion, i also guess we should probably have a suggestion forum while were add.

I realy like your latest Thread feature. How about a latest Post one? Also a simmilar of view new posts in threads youre active in. This could be a good way of keeping track once this grows larger.

I have added a Feedback forum, I'll move this topic over there.

I can add a latest posts, give me some time and I'll put one in. As for the new posts: Click "receive notices from this topic." After you've subscribed, go to Personal Settings -> Topic Notices. New posts will be featured there.

At the moment there is a plugin that is being developed that will alert people of new posts in topics that they have posted in, or whenever they are quoted. As well as other features. I'm unsure of when it'll be completed, but probably not longer than a few weeks.

Because I rarely see these anywhere else and you might have a hard time finding them once you get around to collect screenshots, here are the ones I took from the German cover article a few months back: http://www.reddit.com/r/elderscrollsonli..._gamestar/

I've got an unused vB4 CMS license, should you wish to turn this into a full fledged community website and don't want to code everything yourself. I'm not much of a coder (seriously, I hate to admit it, but I'm just a user), so I can't tell how much of a hassle it would be to transfer everything from MyBB to vB4.

Thanks for the offer. I actually have Xenforo and IPB licenses, but I decided to stick with MyBB. It just feels right to me. It actually would be a pretty big hassle to move over to a different forum software, and I don't mind having to put in the extra work.

Plus I'm a supporter of the open source movement.

I think you really have the possibility of creating something truly special here Tecca. With most forums, including the current official ESO forums, there are just a lot of trolls and fanboys and generally it's nothing but chaos. There is very little depth to most of the threads and most of the OPs ask questions that we already know or are just ridiculous.

Forums should really be about expressing plausible and innovative ideas, as well as discussing constructively what we know about the game and how we feel about it. Since you are more or less in control with how large this community grows, you can pick and choose who joins and really develop the kind of community this game deserves and one that ZOS could hear and talk to.

Communication between a developer and the community is key and if you are able to start something here that could help translate to the soon-to-be official ESO forums, it could potentially help the game in the future. I really appreciate you taking the time to build this site and keep up the good work. We all want ESO to be a great MMO and the least we can do is help and assist ZOS in making that a reality.
