Do you honestly feel interest in the project has kind of dropped?
With release closer to launch i have felt that since the change of the thread from general to community we have seen a massive drop in interest in people wanting to take part, it also feels that much of the interest from many posters has left too
Yes people are busy, yes life happens and most importantly regardless of what happens here to this site i know many of us will continue with the ideal and do our best to make sure that community is a great experience
As 2011 is here, what are your thoughts on the project, its direction and current situation, are we facing a struggle? and where to as we get closer to launch ?

I think interest in the project is sill here, only intensity has somewhat decreased. Community spirit is alive. But we need the game to play to (significantly) move forward. *looks into crystal ball* Once Bioware publishes the release date, interest will soar again.

Ah, the waiting ... it's killing me. *installs RIFT*

Edit: changed first two sentences.

Well, I don't believe interest has waned, but I do feel as though we are not growing as fast as we once were. I believe this is in large part due to the original thread being moved to the less traveled Community Creations section of the SWTOR forums.

I believe more visibility within the SWTOR forums would help the RiG community here as well as internal support from the other guilds here. Reign, for example, is in the process of drafting master/apprentice and trials systems that will have inductee members completing tasks set before them. Many of the sample tasks we've drafted include measures for promoting the RiG community.

Well, we all had to think it'd plateau eventually, at least before the game actually launched.

I think it's mostly the xmas months and the part of the forums the main thread is in, it doesn't get really much foot traffic.

For my part, I just got a new job and have had to fill in for people who've pulled the no call no show, so I've been picking up extra shifts and doing a few doubles, so I'm usually dog tired when I get back home.

Some people also aren't as big forum socialites, even should they sign up.

Maybe we should have little contests, no real prizes or anything, just something the community can do on their own time, but together. Get people involved that normally don't interact or not as much, and help continue to get consolidate our ideals here on RiG.

I'd suggest hide and go seek, but how hard is it really to find an Ithorian wearing the Best Hat Ever!?

I'm kind of waiting for the game to be release personally...not much to talk about until then.

I would like to maybe give some hope for those that might be losing it.

I'm a member of a community called the Unwashed Villagers. The UV has been around for a VERY long time, and we're a group of people who stood up for what was right and kind, we began as posters back on Interplay's forums for the original Fallout. We helped curb spam posts and the like, so much so that we got a mention in the credits of Fallout (wee!)

We continued as our own entity once we made our own forums during those days (and that's about when I came in,) and we even landed our own random encounter in Fallout 2 (as well as holodisk entries and some other easter egg mentions,) of some of our higher profile members fighting a spammer from back in the Fallout boards.

We've never numbered very many, and I think at our height we were as large as the RiG is currently is currently, with people coming and going over the years.

The Unwashed Villager is well over 13-15 years old now (start date is a lil fuzzy lol) and while it's FINALLY slowed down to a semi crawl (gets about as many posts if not a bit less then we do,) we're still around.

Fallout wasn't even an MMO, it's just a bunch of like minded individuals who enjoyed hanging out and conversing, and most of us have seen children grow and people get married/etc (even some unfortunate passings,) while we've been members. I've almost spent half of my life as a member, and it's something I always keep with me and am proud of.

We may start with TOR, but never doubt that we'll exist far past this game if we hold true. I see many of the beginnings that I witnessed while the UV was young.

There will be ups, and there will be downs. There will also be sideways! But we'll be here, because it's a worthy ideal. As the article that Ty-Odi has linked in another thread, we've already done what we've set out to. Now it's just to see how we can bring that into TOR, and many other games we play.

I would say that too many people are registered and too few are talking.

*eyes everyone suspiciously*

But, no, seriously, people need to realize community doesn't just happen by clicking the approve-button (or pressing "Like", yuck, facebook). You have to be in it, too, and work for it. And usually work just means to talk openly and alot, participating in general.

Exactly actions do speak louder then words, and while some may think bu typing /support the work will be done
When the game goes live every day we wil be trying to make TOR a great place,

No new info to speak of, so no need to speak.

It's a carryover from the days before cell phones. You only made a call when you had something to say.

Cell Phones were a great tool til texting unraveled the social fabric of America....Nowdays texting while driving kills more than drunk drivers...oh the irony...how it mocks me...


I think we'll be fine in here. Like most said, we've covered a ton of bases. Only thing really important that remains is server timezone preferences (Soon!), and organizing/streamlining IG events with the RiG affiliated guilds both light and dark. Other than that, I think we are just like peas and c-arrots..

I got all into it. Looked through the TOR website, even bought the Fatal Alliance book hardcover (good book by the way). Since then though the lack of material deflated me a bit. I'm still very excited about the game, and look forward to joining a guild but for now I'm working quite a bit and I never played Mass Effect 2 so I am going through ME1 and then I'll try 2 (hit the steam sale over the holidays...nice), that and I have other things going on at the moment. I know what I want my character write up to be for the most part, I just need to sit down and do it, and I have been thinking about how I have played MMOs in the past and what I really want from the game and from a guild. I find when I take my time and research I tend to be happier with the result.

Anywho I'm glad I found this community, I check in every day usually, so I'll be around Smile

I think the thread being moved kinda hurt us in terms of numbers, but otherwise no, I don't think the ideal or people who already on here are loosing heart as such, I just think as others have said we have kind of hit a bit of a plateaux so to speak.

Don't get me wrong, anyone on here who merely added a link to the site onto the main boards sig would help, it would no longer matter where the main thread was kept as people would be reminded of it often. I have a link to the thread and the boards on mine as do many others I have seen which is great! Smile

I think once the game nears properly, and we truly know what is what, Open Beta will also be another good opportunity for us to get our name and ideas out there, and so on, we will grow. In all honesty, it may be better to start off small (if thats even right given the number of individuals and guilds we already have? lol) And then grow as the game grows as well, too many people in the beginning may even be counter productive in so much as it becomes harder to communicate with vast numbers, especially those with whom you do not speak too or hear from very often.

I see this group as pretty close knit already, and I am sure that as and when launch day finally lands upon us, we will find all manner of ways to get ourselves out there, and ways in which we can make this work Smile

I am already in mind overload looking into ideas lmao Smile

The rumoured delay might make things interesting

Gaitius and I were talking about how guilds have got a bit bitchy of late,
