No love for Guildhead?Follow

Hi,

I am generally disappointed with the status of Guildhead right now. It seems that it's not being updated at all, and questions in the feedback forum there aren't being answered. Also, there is no ZAM GuildWars2 forum here, why not?

Are there any plans to work on and improve Guildhead, or is it just going to be shuttered soon?

Cheers.

Guildhead doesn't get a whole lot of traffic, so it falls by the wayside apperently. We do not have a guildwars 2 forum on zam, the main reason being that our guildwars 1 forum that used to exist and was removed due to lack of traffic never saw more than a handful of visitors.

I can't answer any questions about improvement status, but if you PM jerekdain (sp?) he might have a better answer for you.

Probably because of the forum on Guildhead. I assume they didn't want to split the community.

Guildhead was pretty nice for a while. Of course, GW2 itself has a /wiki function which brings up the GW2 wiki, so there's that. The only reason I ever go on Guildhead is to look up what weapons share a skin, and if they ever implement the ability to preview gear on the Trading Post, I won't even have to go there for that.

I noticed that on the GW2 subreddit (which is pretty active if you are looking for a GW2 community to chat with aside from the o-boards), someone was posting on occasions when there'd be a Guildhead update, but aside from those threads, there didn't appear to be any real attempt to become part of that community.

Honestly, it seems that the Zam Network launches a new site, promotes it a little bit, and that's about it. They don't end up getting enough user-added content to stay really up-to-date, and eventually nobody goes there anymore. Furthermore, launching each site as its own individual entity with little interaction with the other network sites is a bit short-sighted. They should be capitalizing on whatever community they have by making it easy to stay together throughout the various network sites. But what do I know?

Edit: It should be noted that I don't really fault those who actually work on the various sites. It just seems like a poor business model, and without proper staffing I don't see how you could really rectify it.

Well, I still go there for the crafting recipes, and they recently fixed them, so something was going on.

Yes, they do seem to be pretty dead, but guildhead is still useful, and I wish it was updated more.

Oh well, there's always the wiki and gw2db instead. Such a shame.

Cheers.

Torhead is also pretty dead. Posted a question in the feedback forum back in September about an issue that was "being looked at" back in July. No response and the issue hasn't been fixed. Pretty crucial issue as well. I imagine Torhead lost a lot of traffic because of it.

I understand that the site is low on staff and on the priority list, but you'd think someone would check the feedback forum once every couple of months at least.

We relay isues as we encounter them here. Sometimes the reply turnaround from the people in charge of those specific areas is not what one would hope for.
