Although that windwalker example probably isn't a good one as it is a remaster, not a simple port.

It's a remake more than a remaster @M0NSTER_

They don't have to actually merge the boards, but they could give us an option to view all the topics from the different boards on one page.


That seems like over complicating things.

TC brings up a good point, the tag flair system has eliminated the need for multiple boards of the same game for a different console. You would simply mark your topic [XBONE] in the flair if it pertained solely to something in the xbox version.


This exactly. Merging boards will only promote a more active community instead of a separated one.

Every console has the fans behind it and as such they believe the game is better on their favorite system they play with the most. So if the boards for the games across the systems they are releasing for is a potential problem waiting even with a flair system. What’s going to stop a fan of X system going to Z system flair to cause trouble? Nothing really. Then it’s just gonna go down hill fast.

What's going to stop a fan of X system's game going to the board of its port on the Z system to cause trouble under the current system? Also exactly nothing.

The solution in both cases - mark troublemakers as people who are causing trouble, as it has always been.

Would give a lot of boards more activity.

Doesn't matter.
This suggestion is useful. See post #3.

The way I've been hoping the boards have done this since CJayC days is as a hierarchy of lesser boards.

Souls series (276881) > Dark Souls 3s + DLCs (88211) > Dark Souls 3 PS4 (72312)

Each of those 3 is an aggregation of the boards below it. (with posts total)

Many people just want to talk DS3 and are smart enough to know the system differences, so they pick the 2nd level of boards.

The super fans of Dark Souls would pick the series level and potentially want to read/answer every question/theory/musing about every title in the series.

The super picky would stay at base forum for the system.

And some would skip between them as tastes desire.

The reason I like this design is it keeps the technical guys happy (1 forum per da thing!!!) and gives people an option to combine, so both can choose.

I've been making this sort suggestion (and similar ones, GFs has always needed a board combiner) since before DLC was a thing and multiplatform wasn't as huge. (and shot down every time, no matter how people suggested it be done)

It's only become a more needed feature over time.

When I suggested this a while ago, I was met with nothing but contempt from mods and fellow users.

It's a matter of time. Now, it's something that is one of important things.
