Sometimes Khajiit really misses the old Bethsoft forums.



The old ones, yes. The new ones are totally different; they don't have the same feel at all.

And they are janky as all hell.

I miss the old forums' randomness. My favorite were the Oblivion forums. For several years, it was like every day,
you never knew what to expect. New gamers, always new gamers rolling through. Some would stick around, most would not. New threads, sometimes even old ones brought back to life. Friends, all of us. Occasional trolls, yes, but even these added to the random atmosphere. smile.gif

I used to say these forums here at Chorrol are like a small, country pub. Come to Chorrol, and it's like you're going to that cozy pub where you see a close-knit group of villagers. Go to Beth's forums, and this was more like a roadhouse bar. Rowdier, but fun too. Go to the Skyrim forums, and now you're in a sports bar. Really loud sometimes, usually too much for me though! panic.gif

Khajiit mostly just hung around the community discussion forum. Good times.

I do miss the old forums, even if I was a relative newcomer to them. I really enjoyed discussing what we ideally want to see in the next TES game and just discussing the series in general in the TES General Discussion Forums. Even if some of the personalities there could be a bit bothersome at times. Community Discussion was great too.

I haven't gone on the new forums in months (save for one post, and then I hadn't been there for months before that either). But it isn't the new forums themselves that keep me away. It can be janky, but for the most part, the forum technology didn't bother me greatly. I just haven't had the desire to, there isn't enough time for me to get even moderately invested in discussions about the next TES game, and even when I was it just wasn't very fun anymore. Some of the personalities (with a couple from the old forums) just made it frustrating sometimes. And even when the forum-goers weren't a problem, there are just SO MANY POSTS to sift through about what people want to see in the next game that it is just impossible to keep up.

Not to mention the topics we can still discuss outside of TES are limited. I'm one who really likes to see what people, whom I have at least something major in common with, enjoy outside of that thing that primarily brought us to the forums in the first place. I want variety in discussions.

I hope to pop into the new forums every once in a while though.

Bold: Yes, that is exactly why Kobby started "The Everything Thread" = so people at this site could discuss just about anything without a Mod cracking down on them. (unless it gets heated, which really happens so rarely at this site anyway).

The fact that I devolved into trolling myself shows how much i cared for the old forums lmao I like the new ones even less tho

Anyways, on the subject of ESO's tone, while I'm glad it didn't follow Skyrim's edgy tone, I will say that it sometimes goes a little too far in the other direction. I definitely prefer it over Skyrim's tryhard serious tone, but I feel like ESO could benefit from having more serious characters like Luciana Pullo or Jaxsik-Orrn to balance out the "quirky" characters.

Overall, though, I agree. ESO is a lot better than the other TES games in making memorable characters, and I think it originally being more linear played a part in that. The story part ended up benefiting from it, and I think it's the reason the main games don't have as good a story.

Yeah, the new Beth forum is unappealing. It also seems like you have to give it more time than you should for it to load. Anytime I hit the bookmark to visit the site, I usually count to 5 when the website starts to load. It has an annoying tendency to jump around, or load things in weird orders.

Speaking of which, I watched a nice documentary on the lady the other day. Was unsure where to link it here. You've given me the excuse I need.
