when are you guys going to merge the PF forum with the GD forum. you're about to release This thing (http://play.com/play247.asp?pa=sr&page=title&r=PC&title=866127) on what this says is March 24th.

Don't you think it would make sense to do this? it's stupid going back and forth between these 2 forums. we are about to get a new influx of players looking for help.

which reminds me, everyone be nice to the new players. we want the community to grow. don't scare them off with rudeness. we all want more pilots to shoot at.

I can't see why the forums were split in the first place.
A missed opportunity for free advertising to target those who see others interest in a new product or the benefits of getting the merged version.
It's a fairly safe bet that someone who comes to this forum has at least part of the series, why not let them see the sum of its parts.
Especially as "you're about to release This thing on what this says is March 24th."

I have a counter argument: raaid only seems to post in the Pacific Fighters forum. I vote that we therefore designate the PF forum an 'alternate physics containment zone' keep them split and stop the insanity from catching.

2) GD is GENERAL DISCUSSION therefore indicating that it is GENERAL and so therefore about the IL2 series GENERALLY
3) PF keeps all the nuttsos like raaid out of GD
4) PF threads are boring
5) With all the extra influx of loons into GD, will we and the mods be able to cope...NOOOOOOOOOO....i dont want the posts changing pages all the time because so many loons are posting "OMG WHERES THE AVENGER....OLEG IS A BIASED FASCHIST NOOB"
6) Get out stay out
7) The only decent thing GD and the PF forums could have between them would be a very large sea....a mined sea for the record

Airmail101, forget your meds today?

The vast majority of players have the merged install, it only makes sense to merge the forums.

Besides it will make room for the BoB Forum, which we will need shortly anyway.

i strongly agree with "no merge" sentiments. i like the ability to discuss in a general manner. plus pf is only a small piece of the series.

Well have a new sight for BOB, il be damned if we have "Pacific-fighters.com - The Battle of Brtain not merged with FB-AEP-PF even tho its all covered in the same bloomin forum"....sorta site

My only objection is that threads would get lost very quickly going to pages 2, 3, 4...

Half of page 2 has posts dated today.

No merge. But not because of raaaid, he's a good guy and used as a scapegoat. Maybe he should come over to GD.

How about just renaming the PF forum FB/PF Specific. And keep the General Discussion just that.

Also, how about designating specific Mods for specific forums. Maybe there will be more consistency.

all of these concerns are the Mods jobs. sounds like your issue is with the moderators

Merge, merge, merge.

Also merge the stickys at the top.

Perhaps, Stuff You Need To Know (links, tips, guidelines)

and Who We Are (all personal, best screenshots etc)

The page length should also be increased, so that there could be 100 or so threads on the first page.

Pilot lounge also? For the seriously ot.

No merge.

Some of us, find PF to be totally boring. I also think that those who are into PF are not normally into the eastern front, and vice-versa. It makes no sense to me to merge two forums.

It´s basically two different interest groups.

Wrong, IMO most have a merged install and I see a lot of posters who post in both forums...WWII planes are WWII planes. Some were used in several theatres you know. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

I don't see the problem

Some folks have PF as stand-alone, and that's that. I don't know why some folks can't cope with both GD and PF forums, but each is only a click away...

I've played on plenty of pacific servers that have 190's in them. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif

Merge, merge, merge.

You can always skip over the PF topics. Forum designers can add a small avatar indicating whether its a PF or FB topic.

after just coming back from the PF forums, i'm now of the opinion that Airmail01 was correct in saying
3) PF keeps all the nuttsos like raaid out of GD


you can leave them un-merged. let the new players figure it out for themselves. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

There is a problem with merging. The first page of a merged forum would mainly be stickies.
Could we have all the stickies linked in one thread ie. an essential infomation thread? This would leave more room on the first page.




GD is GENERAL DISCUSSION therefore indicating that it is GENERAL and so therefore about the IL2 series GENERALLY


I always thought GD was for general discussion on any flight subject (as well as for FB) wheras PF Forum was a specific forum for that release only.
