that the pacific fighters forum and the GD should become one.

Having two forums sends mixed signals. One might get the idea that the GD was meant as a place to rant, while the Pacific Fighters forum is for discussion of the game.

I know what the GD is about and so do you. Its the massive numbers of maddox-newbs that wont understand.

It makes little sense to splitter the community with old/new forums on the same subject, so my inner marketing exec would either close the GD, or relax the OT rules a bit.

lol - but I agree let's rename this the OT forum http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
I don't see much newbies asking for the IL-2 Sturmovik forum here... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
But with all the games/versions if would cloud the issues a bit...
IL-2 Sturmo, FB, FB+AEP, FB+PF, FB+AEP+PF rofl
And then I didn't say anything about all the patches yet... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif The number of combinations possible I leave to the reader... Don't wanne fry my brain http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

What the heck is "Inner Marketting?" a fancy term for when a surgeon leaves his Rolex inside your abdominal cavity and it shows up on an X-Ray?

As a noobie to the forum but not the sim i'd like to see GD rules relaxed even more and keep serious focus in PF. I agree with labbit http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I actually agree with Baldie. With release of PF, AEP is pretty much over and Pacific fighters forum... well it should go IMO. I`m sure that pretty much everybody here will get PF.

On the other hand...there IS a giant banner at the top of the page that indicates this is the General Discussion forum for IL2.

I do think that maybe it should becalled the Forgotten Battles Forum and then the Pacific Fighters forum. That divides it up....eventually we'll be mostly over there and not here at all.

Your marketing people do have a point.
