Hi guys. :)

I came from FF boards here on Zam, so I'm used to having world/server sections. I was wondering if Zam had any plans for that with Rift. I think having a Shard thread section would be helpful, as things like gold sellers tend to be shard specific. It could be helpful to Trion as well, to try to localize problems.

If the reason for the shard forums is for dealing with plat sellers in the game, plat sellers tend to have a lifespan of, at most, days in game. And it's very obvious that they live very shortly. This may be a case of where the official forums serve enough of the needs that people are staying there for the most part for server communities.

I originally came to Allakazam from the FFXI Fenrir server forums on my original handle 7 or so years ago. That was such a great tight nit community forum. I still keep in touch with some of the people from there even though we have moved to other games many times over.

I'm not sure the traffic here at Rift Zam warrants shard forums yet however.

I also would enjoy a shard forum to get to know the people I may see in game and perhaps set up financial dealings or guild recruitment.

This. If we had a lot more traffic, we would be happy to make shard specific forums. Right now we just don't have the size to warrant it.

So tell your friends and guildmates!

IIRC the ffxi server forums were implemented only because FFXI didnt have an official board of its own. Rift has an official forum, complete with shard forums. I can almost guarantee you we won't be seeing shard servers here ever.

I don't know about "Almost guarantee", but it would take some serious traffic :)
