I'm sure Mr. Mod Trainee will be kind enough to move this to the correct section if I'm wrong though...
Anyway, on to the topic...
How ready do you think the forum is for the influx of new players when DkS2 drops next year?
It's quite clear that the regulars here are a tight-knit group; even the guys that troll with smart a$$ posts are known to be such, kinda like the Uncle Festers of our forum family.
With DkS2 supposedly being a AAA game, and with all the effort From is going to to advertise it and bring it to the mainstream medias attention, I think its a fair assumption that when the game is released we will get a big increase in membership.
Now, there seems to be a good few people on here who, while not what I'd call 'overly-sensitive', are definately not as thick-skinned as those of us who frequent other places on the net (gamefaqs, 4chan, well... can't actually think of anywhere worse than 4chan outside of the DeepWeb but you get my point).
IF, when the time comes we do get new members from these sort of places--the chances of which are pretty good IMO--there will undoubtedly be people thinking they can bring that attitude here. Sure, if there were few enough people like this they could just be warned/banned.
But AFAIK, this IS the go-to forum for Dark Souls. I don't have any basis for that idea save my own experience, but even before I officially joined this site I was constantly being redirected here (or to the attached wiki) when googling specific things about the game. This leads me to think that IF the sequel does indeed turn into a smash-hit "z0mg DkS2 is faboo" sort of thing, that we WILL get new members from sites like those above, and more importantly get them in good numbers.
So I'm interested to hear your guys opinions about whether this will be the case, how you personally will act, and how we as a forum should react if it is.
(Bearing in mind that this thread is just a way to express any opinions/worries about the topic, not a place to demand things from the admins/mods. I'm sure if we all share in an opinion, and that its reasonable and well thought out the staff here will at the very least give it some thought na'a'mean)
