I know that we use the same logins on both sites and whatnot, but how intertwined are they? I ask because there are SWTOR forums on here, and SWTOR forums on TORhead (and I assume it's similar between WoW and WoWhead). However, they are different forums. I can see having the forum stay in the parent site's skin, but why not have TOR General on ZAM link to teh same forum as TOR General on TORhead? Seems to be counterproductive as you split the community up.
I primarily use ZAM for the forums, perusing the OOT, Asylum and of course, /K/. I use TORhead for item lookups, but rarely browse the forum on there. Likewise, I'm sure many people use TORhead as their primary TOR source, and aren't aware of the forum community on ZAM. It just feels like it would make much more sense to have the communities co-mingle.
