How to use the Gleemax (shudder) Forums


Gamer Life General Discussion


I used to infrequently visit the WotC Forums, and very often I left feeling overwhelmed. It didn't really feel like a community as much as a mob.

I'm sure many people who post there are good-natured, mature, and intelligent, but with SOOOO many posts to keep track of, you'd need a full-time job just to read a good portion of them. And all the good topics have billions of pages of posts which make it very difficult to track replies and follow discussions.

Anyone else feel this way?

And I hate the name Gleemax. Yes. I hate it. I do not need maximized glee thank you.

I do find they're a bit unweildly. Most days I just lurk and skim the titles to see if there's anything interesting. Particularly in the more anecdote-oriented forums. It's often interesting to see how others play. Otherwise, there's just too much.

Before Gleemax, there was an option in a post to subscribe or some such term if you were really interested in following a thread. Haven't used it in a while so not sure if it's still there.

Fortunately it looks Gleemax is dead.

As reported by ENWorld

The Wizards' forums will, of course, remain.

Ok. Well I guess that settles it. Now...
