Let's not let that thread turn into another SR "pre-release feedback" mega-thread :P
Best to create a structure to prevent that I think. Will design and implement something soon.
I can just close it at a certain point, like 500 posts, and open a new thread.
There aren't really a ton of topics open in those subforums for other Beth games and unless my guide will grow the sub forum enough to really become a problem. If we get more game guides that expand to F3, Oblivion, Morrowind or even other specialized guides like TTW, Skywind, Skyblivion, Beyond Skyrim, Project Brazil.... All that stuff could grow the community in that direction, but we usually need a person to just go in there and get it done and others tend to follow. I swear I had a partial guide done for a year before I really decided to get something presentable done. If people hadn't had kept asking about it, then I wouldn't have done it.
I have to say that doing the whole thing on my own with just a few others giving suggestions and feedback is way more work than I thought. I thought helping out with the 2.2.8 release would prepare me for it, but that was pretty much 3 or 4 of us doing an update instead of building it from the ground up. I don't think I could even do it without Kelmych, roots, redishlord, brainfever, and anyone else that might be helping me here or a couple people that lurk the wiki and forums, but only PM on reddit. You end up looking at the list of stuff you have and all the mods that need testing and revision and the whole thing just seems insurmountable.
Another thing that could arise as that part grows is the need for more wiki space and specialization for things like guides and mod pages (maybe). I don't know that we are ready to take that on if we do, s4n does this stuff out of the kindness of his heart, not because someone pays him, so any expansion of the SMW stuff might be out of the question without a proper dev to take it one (not me). The one good thing about it, is that we could create mod pages or any pages, that they are done when they are done. Skyrim still has so much updating required for mods, but most older games have less updating required.
Anyways, I'm rambling about this.
Regardless, it's one of the most active single threads on the forum. I intend to use it once I start playing that game but I'm going to finally finish the Mass Effect Trilogy before doing so.
Yes, finishing things is good. I have started going through my Steam list and finishing or playing things I've had that I haven't gotten into yet, before buying a bunch of other stuff, except for Burial at Sea episode 2. Damn, I love playing as Elizabeth this time around, but I won't say anything about the story. Just finally finished up Spec Ops: The Line, damn that was good story for shooter. Anyways, any feedback is good and helps me make the guide better. Plus, working on this has separated me from Skyrim for a while and batteries have recharged, so I'm much more ready to get into 2.2.9.
