Would it be possible to have a new forum added here. One designed for Live people to come and say, are they working to fix ____ on Test? Does the patch correct ___ problem? If they had there own area to post in, would they leave the feedback section alone? And would testers come check out the new forum to answer questions? It seems to me that to make everyone happy, they all need there own spot to communicate. It would reduce the Feedback posts by half by removing all the "live people shouldn't be posting here" and "Does such and such work yet" threads. I'm not looking for flames. I play live with my husband and test when he works. I'm just offering a suggestion that might calm the fued.~Gem

Same with the "are they working to fix x?" We can only assume they are. Sometimes we are asked to test particular problems, others we know don't work yet so we hit them periodically to see if something has change.Beyond that I don't think an additional forum would help. Mostly I think it will cause more harm as people will start flamewars about "x" not gettting fixed NOW.Thats just my 2cp.Shazz

<DIV>Personally,  I think it is a fine idea.  </DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>I'd like to address live questions without wading through the fued.  I can't answer every single one, but if I can relay what I have learned specifically that would be great.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>And, if I could give feedback in a forum on Test Specific issues without wading that would be great too.</DIV>

Frankly, I've stopped giving feedback on the test server though this forum. If SOE were going to add a new forum for questions about patches it'd be done by now.

Why not use the test server forum from the server list ctaegory?

<DIV>I love this board. Any test player that gives an answer gets a one star. Not that stars really matter, but it's starting to look like this board will soon be the last place a tester would want to post.</DIV>

theres no point to that kinda board because half the stuff they are working on in test is stuff that wont hit live and a large amount of people would flame about why "test got fixed and we got nerfed"
