Guys, look at the topics. Admins divided the board, made subforums, but people still keep writing in "chapter x" topics, instead of use the subforum. So first of all - maybe mod/admin should close "chapter x" topic and try to cut it, divide into riddles' topics that would fit to the subforums? Or at least just close and leave them, forcing the conversations in new topics. And second thing... there are some hints in topic about chapter 1, there are some, thou less, in topic with chapter 2... and no hints in ch3 and ch4. The forum changed into posting like 'i am at xxx, omg it looks hard, i have no idea... oh dear, got it!' and 'i'm really stuck at xyz, can someone pm me? - pmed you'. I don't think this is what riddle's message board is meant to be. Just instead of 'i''ll pm you' and sending a pm - what, i know, may be easier, because you don't need to avoid much spoilers in a pm, and a forum hint ought to be subtle - just write in the topic. Make it alive. I know this is no difference for you, since you've solved whole or almost whole riddle that is up yet. But think about newcomers, looking for at least subtle nudges here and there, finding 'glimmering road is hard, can someone pm me?! - pm sent, check your box' and nothing more.
Those are just my feelings, i don't know if you find them too. But it's annoying to move in chaotic topics about whole chapters with hardly found hints, if there are any.
It was the possibility of darkness that made the day seem so bright.
After six months... The board is still messed up. I'm getting quite confused where to find the right topic for my need. Seriously, if someone tried to look for a certain riddle he/she would end up reading all about other riddles. Well that happened in my case but I didn't come here for hints; I just checked what the board for DR2 looks like (and I see it's BOOM! ). I already finished Chapter 1 with sljohn04 and decided to see the forum, and I was shocked when I came in.
I believe there is someone from the management team who could fix this up? I mean, sort out the separated threads and place them into the designated chapter threads, so that any visitor who would want to use the site would not leave with more confusion.
Anyway, if someone's reading this, if we're going to reply to a topic let's make use of the correct threads (the Chapter folders) and reply there, shall we?
