I put together a FAQ for the forum. Here's a link.

http://everquest.allakhazam.com/Forum_FAQ.html

One thing I want to emphasize is the Karma system. If people start to use it, it should solve many of the complaints I see about anon posting. If you have received Scholar status of higher, you in effect become a limited forum admin. Please take advantage of this.

As you read through a thread, rate the best posts up and the worst posts down. Then when you get to the end, hit the rate posts button to enter your ratings. It only takes a couple people rating through a thread like that to move the dumb posts below the default viewing threshold and move the better posts up, which will eventually make those making the good posts able to rate as well.

Now just make sure you have your filter settings at "default" and not at "Never Filter". The default filter means that when you are on the main thread page, any thread where the lead is below 1.5 isn't even listed, and within a thread any post below that rating also disappears. If you choose to set your filter to "Never Filter", then I have to assume you want to see those types of posts.

We do moderate the forum as well, but only to get rid of the most outrageous posts. If people want to carry on a below the threshold flame war, then we won't interfere until it becomes indecent.

Illia did some changes over the weekend that have helped speed things up. We also have three new servers on order that should be hooked up later this month. These should keep things going even when the ffxi or eq servers go down. You're right though. This forum has not gotten enough moderator love. I'll try to correct that.

Don't follow advice based on karma/postcount alone. Listen to everything and make your own decision based on what you've learned.
