It has been six months, everyone ready to move our conversations back to the General board?

Sure. Could we make this one an AMoL discussion section?

I second that, Move this to general and make this aMOL discussion.

No, we don't need a separate board for AMOL at all. That's dumb, and one of the things I hate about Dragonmount at the moment.

I suppose discussing aMOL in general actually makes sense doesn't it :P. Also terez, who are you? This site's founder or something. You seem important :cool:

No, Tamyrlin is the founder. He started the site in '98; I didn't show up until '04. I'm just opinionated, and the boss humors me (to a point). ;)

I don't think we should. I think we should keep it like this forever, even after AMOL has been released.

Well I see your point and get why you wouldn't want this. I'm on DM as well. But this is a more mature site IMO and it wouldn't get like the one on DM. But I think it would be better to have one section dedicated to the newest/upcoming book because it is what most people are talking about. It would help keep things a bit more organized more easily accessable to other users rather than just having everything bunched up in one section.

But this is just my opinion. I've been a forum Admin/mod myself and know how having too many seperate sections can be a pain to maintain, but having a few extra sections, like one for the most talked about subject at that time, can make things a little easier to keep track of and maintain. But I guess the best way to resolve this would be to have a poll and see what the majority thinks. :)

I'm not sure it is possible to get a majority on any issue at all on this board.
Edited to add: Except perhaps when it comes to the importance of grilled cheese. But that does not seem a very relevant consideration in this particular case.

Well maybe we can do both. lol.

Vote options:

1 - I like grilled cheese and would like a MoL section.

2 - I like grilled cheese but don't want a MoL section

3 - I don't like grilled cheese but would like a MoL section.

4 - I don't like grilled cheese and don't want a MoL section.

I vote #1. lol. :D

It's less about maturity and more about the fact that pretty much everything we discuss now has to do with what's going to happen in AMOL. There are a few exceptions, but there isn't any point in making a separate board for AMOL speculation.

I think it's still too early for AMoL really. The release date is slated for next year not this one. there's plenty of time for a board once we get a preview.

Terez

Yeah, the main intent is to keep spoilers separate until everyone has had a chance to read the book. We usually open up a separate forum once the hype starts to escalate before preview material is released, which keeps news threads separate from plot discussion. We'll probably open up an AMOL board when the book is complete.

Egwene.She has issues, true, but is she one?

Egwene.

I don't hate Egwene. She's one of my preferred characters.

There is definitely no consensus on Egwene. (http://www.theoryland.com/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=4070)

I agree it's time to move this to General, but way too early to start an AMOL board. That can wait till the prologue/1st chapter is released (or at least till it's announced).

We are going to go back to General and no AMoL board yet. I imagine we'll do that early next year.
