AFAIK The Nentir Vale has never officially been connected to the Realms. OTOH, I could see an argument being made for the Nentir Vale threads to be moved into the 4E forum. Its not like the 4E forum is all that packed with discussion anyway?
Maybe you are mixing it up with Neverwinter, TAD.

I would say it is a campaign setting and put it there, just like Birthright is not a subforum of 2e.

I believe that Kalamar has also got enough threads for its own forum. I'll check that out as soon as I can.

Is there such a thing as a Nentir Vale logo?

No problem :)
It wasnt something I had put alot of thought into, but I thought maybe a reference to Points of Light and Nerath could help keep the focus on the whole setting and not just the Vale itself.

Re: Forum Request Thread - The Horde

Post by Big Mac » Thu Oct 27, 2011 7:05 pm

I received a PM from BlackBat242 requesting a forum for The Horde.

We now have 5 threads for The Horde (the Forgotten Realms sub-setting): Here is a copy of the logo:

I'll get the Giant Space Hamster to set up the forum later, but the logo will need to wait for Ashtagon to get her computer fixed.

World of Kulan Thread Index
Following my creation of the forum for The Horde, Ashtagon got asked to review the policy. She increased the thread requirements and added in a requirement for several people to have made meaningful contributions:
Ashtagon wrote:Effective immediately, the forum creation policy is as follows:

* Ten threads with meaningful content.
* At least five different individuals being initiators and/or meaingful content contributors on these threads.

Having a single person drive five threads forwards defeats the whole concept of it being a reaction to a community-driven (as opposed to individual member-driven) process. The original intent was that "five threads" be a minimum threshold below which i won't even consider it, but that even once this threshold was reached, I would consider whether the new board would be of significant benefit to the overal site. We've now reached a point where there are a large number of boards that have been made and then mostly ignored by the people who made the original drive to have them made.
I've just skimmed through every single one of your threads to check them. You have had five people making meaningful replies, but the vast majority of posts are by you.

However, you have been a good contributor and I don't think you would be "ignoring" a World of Kulan forum, if you were given one. You have also put a lot of work into this before asking again.

So that puts you in a grey area. I'm going to bump this upstairs to see if a special exception can be made for your project (either as it stands now, or when it expands a bit more).

It might take several days, as Ashtagon is busy with some real-life stuff at the moment. I'll get back to you as soon as I have an answer.

I guess I'll go ahead and make a formal request for a 5th Edition D&D forum since we'll probably need one shortly.

Once the rules (or previews of the rules) get released, it'll be created . Rule forums are primarily intended to be discussions about rules. Industry news belongs in the Wishing Well forum.

Now that the D&D Next playtest is out and we have something concrete to discuss, I humbly request that we make a D&D Next forum.

I will volunteer to moderate it.

OK. You have 10 threads and 5 active posters, don't you? Would you please link to the 10 threads required, as per the first post, as I have to confirm 5 posters before I'm allowed to create a new forum.

But what is this thing going to be called? "D&D Next" or "D&D 5th Edition"?

Is there a suggested forum blurb?

Have WotC created a logo? I can't find one online, but wonder if there is one in the playtest documents.

Certainly.

[5e] Public Playtest starts today

D&D Podcast - Playtest for D&D Next

Monte Cook leaves WotC

[5e] One-hour sessions

The Future of D&D Panel at PAX East - 2012

[5e] Alignment!

[5e] D&D Next: Wish List!

[5E] Class Design Seminar Transcript

[5e] What Is The Next Dungeons & Dragons? (Interview)

[5e] Sorcerer - Class or Theme?

There are more threads beyond this too.

As for active posters, here's just a few names to prove we have the minimum.
Blacky the Blackball
rabindranath72
Ashtagon
agathokles
Dragonhelm
True_Atlantean
Havard
night_druid

I believe the requirements have been met. :cool:
But what is this thing going to be called? "D&D Next" or "D&D 5th Edition"?
The name WotC has been using is D&D Next.
Is there a suggested forum blurb?
"The next iteration of the Dungeons & Dragons game."
Have WotC created a logo? I can't find one online, but wonder if there is one in the playtest documents.
Not yet, though we might be able to use one of their concept logos. Nothing in the playtest documents.

EN World made their own logo, but it would not work for our purposes.

How about an Unknown Lands subforum under the Forgotten Realms that would be for all the less detailed continents of Toril — Anchorome, Katashaka, Osse, etc.
