New Open Forum

I've had requests for a way for others to post game design issues for discussion, so I've created an associated forum, http://gamedesignfanatic.aforumfree.com/open-forum-f1/. If you want to post anything that is not a response to one of my blog posts, you can do it here.

  1. Good idea to set up some forums.

  2. I had a longer comment, but it was lost and was a bit of a rambling bit. Essentially, I feel blogs are more merit-based; people will regularly read and comment on the blog if they know it has generally good content. On a forum, readers have to at the least skim a post to determine its usefulness. It's hard to say exactly why, but there seems to be a lot more dross on a forum. I guess it's because the burden falls on the moderator to maintain quality control, whereas bloggers who don't maintain good quality simply don't get read or stumbled upon, and don't have to be managed.
