Also, I've reached out to the content devs, and while the majority in this thread wanted to see a merge for the FED and KDF gameplay forums, it's actually better for them if it stays separated.

Thoughts?

I still say we should have a general mechanics subforum. It's off putting that most of the mechanics is discussed in PvP, and that's there isn't a good subforum for general mechanics suggestions.

That would be discussed under "Captains and Bridge Officers", no? Since that encompasses powers, traits, abilities, etc.?

I guess? But I've never seen any Dev post in that forum (or rather, the parents subforums of that future subforum).

Suggestions labeled in red above. Under the Fleet Administrative section, I think it best to either name it based on location (First City, Mol'Rihan), or planet name (Earth, Qo'nos, New Romulus), or faction (Federation, Klingon, Romulan).

Not sure about this one. Both Qo'nos and Romulus exist within the Beta Quadrant. Earth is actually located roughly in the middle boundary of the Alpha and Beta Quadrants.

I agree with the others who say there should be mechanics subforum. Mechanics are not just about powers, traits, and abilities. They are also about things like turn rate, hull repair rate, shield resistances, etc. Currently, most of the mechanics discussions take place in the PvP forums. While it may be that PvPers have the most interest in mechanics, it is not solely a PvP issue. I have tried asking mechanics questions in The Academy with little success. That forum is used mostly for answering the questions of new players, not for detailed technical questions.

I also hope that this forum reorganization does not turn out like the last change to the forums.

Ten Forward should continue to exist for intros, discussions not about the game, forum games, etc.

I'd like to stay away from the title "PvE Feedback" if posaible as we'll get some players posting faction-specific feedback into it. I'm open to other names than what I listed too

I think I'll update "Starbase One" to "Earth Spacedock". Anyone have any objections?

Moving "Graphical Issues" to the second spot is no problem.

I'd like to try and cover mechanics in the same forum as powers, skills and traits because they can be related and the same Devs that work on "mechanics" work on those. I'm open to other names for this subforum so it's more clear that mechanics should be discussed there. We'll try and keep mechanics discussions out of the PvP subforum if they are more general and don't only relate to PvP.

This forum reorganization is not a software change, only settings. The future forum upgrade, which would be a software change, is being discussed here: http://sto-forum.perfectworld.com/sh...d.php?t=437071

I'd be inclined to call it "Nuts and Bolts" but that doesn't seem very Star Trek (and may not be immediately obvious)....

Oh, how about "Main Engineering (Classes, Powers, Traits, Mechanics, etc)"?

Are there any forums that you think should be combined?
