That's a little sad.

I guess the cost of keeping it up was too hard to justify somehow. At least we have the Aenea forums Smile

For whatever reasons, finances are not among them. But it does remain a sad state of affairs when Social media is believed to provide the same possible service.

Why forum when you can twitter? I am glad they're keeping the SWTOR forums open, though - a great way to get your daily dose of doom n gloom!

I wonder if there is a plan afoot to archive the NwN forums by way of the New Vault?

There may not be enough time. At some point, the old info will be deleted, and it may not be that far away (believe it is Oct, but uncertain).
