Bumping this thread, because at page 3 of the DFA: Discussion and Feedback board it's not very useful anymore.

Kind of defeats the purpose if almost nobody will see this thread.

There are still plenty of threads being started about subjects that already have their own threads.

Has it not been stickied yet? Deserves a sticky.

I'm not going to continue working on this, for two reasons:

1. I know of at least one administrator who knows about this thread, and even though some of you have suggested this thread could be stickied (thanks!), it hasn't been stickied. During the last day or so, this thread once again slowly moved to the end of page 3 of the DFA: Discussion and Feedback board. Such a location for this thread more or less defeats its purpose.

2. I've requested more boards to be created in the Kickstarter Backers-Only Area in this thread. The consensus seemed to be that creating more boards would be a good idea. The increasing number of threads, with many duplicates, makes it difficult to keep track of certain things. So far, no extra boards have been created.

I've been trying to fix what I think is a problem with this forum. I now realize that it's up to Double Fine to decide whether or not there's a problem, and if there is, it's also up to Double Fine to work out a good solution. It's not my project.

Seems a shame. There are definitely problems with this forum that need to be addressed (purely technical problems) and good on you for trying to help out. Hopefully they will be addressed soon because I can see people getting frustrated with all of the multiple topics and lack of navigation features and leaving.

Thanks for the effort. I certainly agree that these forums are poorly moderated, which is a shame with the huge amounts of recently registered inexperienced forum goers. Some forums have a feature where when you start a new thread you get a few suggestions of similar threads that already exists. That's something the Double Fine forums really could benefit from, seeing as many users not only aren't able to use the search function, but can't even see similar threads five threads down on the page. I've now taken to only reading posts by DF and 2PP employees unless I find a thread with a really interesting topic and not too many posts.
