Hi!

Before I start, just want to let you know that I have been a playing SWTOR since the beta. I have over 100 days of played on my main so you can pretty much guess that I love the game. Nowadays I mostly just PvP and lurk the relevant forums pretty much every day. After they announced that Joveth was also leaving, I was thinking about the absence of CM's in specially in the PvP forums. You can see a comment now and them, but it is pretty rare. I admit, some of threads are not worth any ones time, but still.

So basically I programmed a scraper, that calculated the amount of threads and the amount of post that BW official have posted here in the PvP forums. Here are the results as totals and relative percentages from all threads at that time (27.02.2013):

Amount of threads having staff posts: 55 / 0.134%
Amount of posts by BW staff: 98 / 0.013%

I will just leave it here. Please note that I only calculated threads that have the staff post icon in front of them, lot of the older ones do not have those.

While its true that they respond to the least amount of threads on this particular forum, the amount of garbage QQ threads that are created daily is crazy. Their are topics to which a response would be very welcomed but the fact that so many PvP players post rage threads hourly really drives that percentage downward.

Thread content-wise the amount of troll and trash posts skews things further (of which I'm responsible for approx. 18%). However I agree more staff posts would be extremely welcome, and encourage more focus to forum discussions. Whiners will whine, but I'm sure a fair amount of posters would rather be discussing dev. generated info. or interacting with them than speculating and bickering.

Until then, we'll have to be satisfied with cycao's sig for the best of what's been posted.

it would be nice if the moderators would either delete or move duplicate QQ threads. like the days that there are 5 "nerf smash" type threads on page 1; get rid of those and consolidate it all into one thread.

They would close threads like that and point them to existing topics...I miss that.

This seems like an excellent post for me to jump into given the topic

We are going to make a more concerted effort to post in all forums, not just PvP, but this forum is certainly a place that we can increase "yellow posts." I am doing my best to go through and find major issues in all of our forums and even if I don't have an answer at the moment, at least let you folks in the community know that we are aware of them.

Wow, that was fast, thanks Eric! I think that's all we ask... Acknowledgment of something and communicating that you are working on it.
