    [​IMG] I think the two NWN forums has an undeservedly prominent spot once you come to these forums. Who here would like to see them moved down to below Baldur's Gate. Let's keep BG2 (or maybe even IWD2) on the top! ;)

    88% now.. ah, democracy is a fine thing. Not sure that we have it here on SP though, and more importantly, I'm not sure if I'd want to have it! :D

    I'm not voting. It should be moved down, but it's not an undeserving POS... :rolleyes:

    [​IMG] Newest games get added on top, so yea, I'll put IWD2 there. Anyway, this should have been posted in SS. Moving.

    You're quite right, democracy here on SP would be a bad, very bad, thing. What polls can do is give an idea of how people feel or think.
    An example is the polls on best kit in BG2. I'm convinced that experienced players have different and more well founded opinions than new players. Still a vote based on "It rocks!" is worth as much as a vote based years of experience and testing. :aww:

    @Taluntain
    Sorry about posting in the wrong forum. Maybe now I'll look into Sorcerous Sundries from time to time. :)

    I have voted against moving it down!

    Regardless the fact that it SUCKS and that I'll have to let my modem 24 hours on dial-up to download such big patch, you should keep in mind that it added some pretty new and revolutionary "inventions" to RPG playing.
    Just because of that, it deserved to be on top. Well. For now. Don't get me wrong here.

    I think the only thing that you can say that sucks about NWN is the official campaign. Other than that, the gameplay, toolset, and DM client are all really awesome.

    [​IMG] Lol, now I am a defender of NWN because of the ability to create your own modules. So don't get me wrong. But I find it quite humorous that what you're essentially saying is "Everything about NWN is great -- except for the actual game." Too bad. Why couldn't the campaign have been just as good? Oh well.

    But as for being on the top of forums, it doesn't matter to me. I make an effort to visit all the forums at least one every few weeks. And there's some I visit daily :grin: . Visual hierarchy doesn't deter that in anyway.

    So if newest games get added on top, how come the brilliance that is PoR2 is at the very bottom? It was only released in 2001... :confused:

    [​IMG] Because the crappiest (or those with least forum activity) games are added to the bottom...
