I would like to share my thoughts on the official LotRO forums:
- The last time I participated in the HD closed beta, I relized that the Dev-Tracker did not show posts from the closed beta forums. Please change this!
- The Dev-Tracker shows posts from Sapience although he is not a "developer". Why doesn't the Dev-Tracker show posts from the German/French Community Team in the German/Frech forums? Maybe add an option to show this!
I realized that you are automatically forwarded to the respective language-subforums, if you chose your language at the lotro.com main site. This option is on the bottom of the website and I believe many people will not find this option easily.
- Add a "flag" symbol on the top of the page where people can change their language.
- When German or French is chosen: Do not forward them to the language forums but rather show the languages-subforums at the top of the forums-list. There are people who prefer the German/French forum but don't want to be excluded from the English part though.
- Please add notifications to make it easy to see if I got a new PM! This can be done by adding a number after the "Private Messages" text. Like "Private Messages (2)". This would show me that I recieved two new messages. Or add a small pop-up window with a notification text.
- For some reason I my "Sent Items" folder is empty... Why are my Sent Messages deleted? If I missed the option to avoid them from being deleted please make it more obvious.
- Some options are hard to find in my opinion. Like the option to change your "forum title" and the option to see your infrictions... Please make it easier to find!
- Why have the "Kinship" subforums been removed from the server-forums? I think that it was a nice feature to have all things concerning Kinships together at one place.
- I think it would be nice to have a list or something similar so see where one can see who is resposible for which part of the forums... E.g. if want to ask a mod to make my thread a sticky or if I need clarification on other issues...
I want to apologize in advance in case of some features are already existing but I was not able to find them... Please tell me if this is the case.
