YOU DECIDE!


With Cataclysm approaching, some of us are looking to improve the site even more. We know we still have bugs and whatnot to fix (like the lovely image for those who use the new layout with the moonkin in moonglade). But one idea was to expand the site to cover all druid specs.

In other words.

The Druid Repository, this means Feral and Resto will become main forums along with moonkin. Forums will be moved around and deleted to make everything uniform.

BUT! We want YOUR opinion on this matter. Tell us if you want to see the site expand or stay the same!

With dual specs I don't see the harm in making separate forums. Many of us have non-laser owl specs too, so having one place to discuss things that pertain to the "lesser" specs would be nice. I would like to see the name stay the same though. The Moonkin Repository has a better ring to it then The Druid Repository.

This idea actually came up a while back when the whole RealID forum fiasco was going on. A bunch of us were pondering exactly how to work the idea, with everything ranging from the idea of 3 separate forum communities all the way to adding forums in and keeping the name TMR the same.

The general consensus from talking around is that if TMR was to be expanded, it would probably be a better idea to have a spec-neutral name so as to eliminate the feeling that feral and resto were 'after thoughts'.

Right now, it's just more or less ideas being thrown around, without anything concrete having happened as of yet. Testing the (:fish) waters so to speak. So, any thoughts, concerns or whatnot that you have, post them up, or fire a note to one of us moderator type folks and we'll let you know kind of where things stand.

What about calling it TMR? Doesn't mean anything by itself, so isn't overtly moonkin-biased, but would retain something of the old ways to those who were here.

It's very possible that increasing the scope of the site will decrease the quality of information. While this is not guaranteed, I would worry about it happening. I also imagine that it would be difficult to moderate given the amount of information that would be here.

Maybe I just like having a moonkin place, but there's already offspec forums. Isn't that good enough?

No one has been really using the forums. Alot of people who have main spec's of Feral and Resto normally go to EJ or the Wow Forums.

Ej is millions of pages upon itself and..well..The Wow Forums..are the wow forums? Most people that come here, only look for Moonkin advice because the site is known as a Moonkin Site. We wanted to give the Offspec discussion its own forum so others can feel welcomed to come here and chat about stuff without the worry of the amazing trolls that plague the WoW Forums, or the hate you can get when you ask something to be clarified on EJ.

Well, the potential issues with moderation can be solved by making more moderators if necessary. I can see the point about name recognition, maybe I am just against change. I wouldn't stop coming if the name changed, I just don't want it!

I'll admit, as much as I plan on going Cat or ditching Druid for pally in Cata, I'd still like to see this place Moonkin-only, it's what drew me to this place over the generic wow forums. Last thing we need are Ferals who're either elitists with regards to their DPS or oppositely, noobs who don't know how to DPS right and complain about it then get made fun of, and Resto...eh, I see no need to socialize with those that we're competing with for drops. Evil trees.

Well, we can easily handle the elitists. They may be cats but I think Moonkin melee would rock them!

/Equip BanHammer
/Cast Moonkin Form
*You gain Owlkin Frenzy*
Begin swinging BanHammer with wild abandon!

As for the noobs, we get quite a few of those already so I don't see it making it any worse. And before someone starts flaming there is a difference between a good question and something that has been answered 27 thousand times and is in four different stickies. /end random rant

I guess I feel like if there was a real call for a feral and resto forum, we would already see them independently. Also, I wouldn't mind sister sites. But if I would have to filter through all non-moonkin stuff on the new posts page to see what's recent, I think I'd stop doing it. Also, calls for help would get more confusing.

I'd prefer to either stay the same or have sister sites with different names that maybe are accessible through permalinks at the top of the page.

That idea actually came up as well. One portal page if you will, and three 'separate' sites. Another modification on that was to try one URL (www.InsertWittyDruidCommunityNameHere) and just do "/TMR" "/HotCupoMangle" "/KnockOnWood" or some such name that was originated by someone with an actual worthwhile sense of humor. ;)

This was actually what I was personally leaning more towards initially... But there are drawbacks too, including possible inconvenient multiple registrations in order to post there (Tying the registration process for one forum to all 3 is a quirky thing to do).

But, if that doesn't phase people... One more concern might be some of the hosting costs that we may need to shoulder, but, I'm not actually sure on that particular subject. Could be worth looking into perhaps.

And just to be clear folks, this is only the idea stage right now. Nothing is set in stone. This isn't a case of: "Damn, they've already decided and they're just hoping we don't warble too much about it". This is a case of: "Hm. This could be interesting. What if?"


There is nothing you can say to us aside from perhaps mocking my beak that is going to offend, make us cry or otherwise. If you don't like the idea, or if you're exceptionally wary of it, say so. Or else I come at you with Mr. Nibbles.

I hate you, everything you stand for, and your ugly beak. Furthermore, I counter your Mr. Nibbles with my Magic Shrooms! :mushroom :mushroom :mushroom
