That number remains fairly accurate. It also represents all those users who visit the forums. The number of people who post is actually quite a bit smaller.

Thanks,

i find it staggering that roughly 90% dont even look at the forums, on a game that has a fairly complex franchise and is updated like once a week.

no wonder no one can find sulu.

It has been that way in just about any MMO you could name. Roughly, somewhere from 6 to 10 percent will LOOK at the forums while far less actually post. And yes, it is amazing but what I have found it that most people think it is too much work to look up something on the forums let alone bother to post.

When I saw the title of the thread I thought that either Cryptic was bringing back the program or someone had necro'd a LONG dead thread. I guess I found out that someone just necro'd the topic. As has been pointed out above, the Council had been nixxed a long time ago. Personally, I never had any real opinion on it then and I certainly don't care about it now. It was a good concept on paper, but people just didn't want non-players telling Cryptic what we wanted.

At least voices still get heard...on these forums...by a relatively small percentage of players. Look at the suggestions/requests that had been posted since launch and see how many of them have been implemented. They're listening and making decisions based on how popular these ideas are. Some are great...some are crap...some are major WTF ideas...but a fair number of them are being looked at and commented on.

The sheer amount of people that can use this forum is a bit daunting to some, and perhaps go to smaller forums (either fan or fleet run) to get their voices and opinions heard.

As Srafa said, people don't want to post in case of being shot down because the topics have been brought up before, or their grammar isn't one hundred percent. Lets face it, any large scale forum has a lot of hostility as people are passionate about what they are talking about.

Fixed. In my opinion (no facts, pure unadulterated opinion) most people with at least one game under their belt will have encountered hostility on their previous game forums, and choose to avoid all game forums altogether.

So true, but I was just trying to grind up my diplomatic xp
