How often is it necessary to visit the forums?

Recommended Posts

Not my favourite thing: fora/forums.

 

I do think I should pop back di tanto in tanto just to see if I have my badge yet, but other than that as I see this whole process it's a case of Obsidian getting on with it and letting me know occasionally when anything of note happens or more involvement from me is required.

 

BUT of course I don't want to miss out on anything salient.

 

How does one strike a balance?

I think their hopeful intention is to make "updates" once every week or couple weeks. So if those are all you're interested in, I'd say yes, just check the P.E. official page or the Announcement forum here a few times a month. :)

You should at least be visiting the forums on the last Sunday of every month. Should you choose not to, the fabric which makes up the existence you believe yourself to be a part of will begin unraveling and you will suffer unending madness.

Sadly reading the forums even as little as the last Sunday of every month will probably *also* result in unending madness.

 

Its a vicious cycle! :aiee:

 

Seriously I'll use me and Wasteland 2 as an example - I only occasionally lurk over there because I've played *maybe* 5 minutes worth of the original game. I don't really have any strong opinions on how the game "should" or "could" be, so am content to see what happens. Unlike with PE where I've played all the IE games and all of the Obsidian games so many more opinions (even if, ultimately, I'm okay with just seeing what Obsidian comes up with here too).

1-2 times a week, i do the same since there are no point in going on forums more, you will know enough about PE anyway.

What are you saying? Just don't close the browser. :lol: That's right--I only visit once a day. Honest.

 

How the hell do I have over 900 posts? :ermm:

 

If you don't like forums, skip them entirely! Go to http://eternity.obsidian.net

 

Though to be honest, I liked the Kickstarter updates because those were always emailed out. I don't suppose Obsidian could do an email newsletter....


The KS Collector's Edition does not include the Collector's Book.

Which game hook brought you to Project Eternity and interests you the most?

Write your own romance mods because there won't be any in PE.

Exactly this OP, or do you not know what 42 means?

I once left the forum for two and a half days! then I came back yesterday.

Honestly though, unless you have very little do do than build your own hype all day, once or twice a week seems easily enough, spend 20 mins reading all the new threads. if you click on the white icon it automatically goes to the first unread post, so you won't have to get behind on the discussion.

 

it's a very active forum right now though, so you might have a lot of reading to catch up on, if you want to keep track of everything.


Remember: Argue the point, not the person. Remain polite and constructive. Friendly forums have friendly debate. There's no shame in being wrong. If you don't have something to add, don't post for the sake of it. And don't be afraid to post thoughts you are uncertain about, that's what discussion is for.

@Amentep: I rarely go to the Wasteland 2 forum because the layout is extremely bothersome to the eye. I have serious difficulties to read whatever thread in there.

 

i don't remember it being THAT bad. *goes to look*

 

lol...I go there to look and the first thread I see is about romances...

 

Anyhow, looks to be okay to me, maybe a bit too busy with the background and all - I do prefer simple colors and all to textured background images.

Well, personally I like all the talk. And so much... if you skip a day 8 new pages of new content waiting, it's crazy.

 

But if you (:() are not interested in talking I suggest just adding the announcement forum to watch, so you'll get any important updates from the devs made there in your inbox.

it is an answer only you can answer for yourself I'm afraid. How much time do you want to spend on the forums?

If you are only wanting updates from oblivion then you don't really ever have to visit, the kickstarter page will highlight updates and email you, twitter and facebook will also keep you updated.

If you are interested in community discussion and speculation then visit as often as your free time and curiosity allow.


None of this is really happening. There is a man. With a typewriter. This is all part of his crazy imagination.

Yeah, I suggest the Bethesda boards instead ;)

 

(j/k, but the amount of times Obsidian and Oblivion get confused suprises me)

Does anybody know if they have an official notification mailing list set up? Thanks.

Optimally you will hire a personal assistant to refresh the forums every 3 minutes, make a note of any important developments, and given you verbal updates every hour on the hour. If that cannot be managed, personally checking in once per week or so should suffice.
