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.

Yeah, I would like to send some "Ideas" to the EQoA Staff or Bordael. I don't know how and I am also wondering if you know how.

Does the staff from EQoA read these posts? Or might I rephrase do you think they do? I have also noticed to much spamming on some of the boards. I recently went into the Ogre Discussion Boards and noticed that there was Spam everywhere? One with the Why should Ogres be Spammed??? and then hit enter a bunch times and typed in I am **** :) and then replied to the same forum and now I have to scroll down half way to start reading the posts.

the best way to get ahold of the EQoA staff is to go to the official page, and then click on the feedback button.

I posted this evening requesting assistance in character creation, as a couple of members suggested I do. Now the post is gone and I can't find it anywhere. What happened?

New threads and more active threads get bumped to the top as more people post on them. So your thread has probably been bumped down to the next page.

comical

Try hitting refresh on your broswer. Sometimes it will have differculties displaying your posts. After you hit post message (or whatever the button may be) wait a bit to see if it loads. If not hit refresh. and on a regular basis clear out your cookies.

I had that same problem... I had to Edit one post several times before it actually "edited" the post.

well they get the extra stars since they run the site, if you run your own site you can give your self the perks.

Jealous, you were so close maybe a forth year in forth grade will help. J/K
