First and foremost, I want to welcome all the new folks here to the Mos Eisley Radio forums! As Zach and I have said many times on the show, the core of MER is the community of listeners, and we can't think of a better way to interact with all of you outside of the podcast than these forums. There is no better place to continue the discussions we have on the show, dive further into the lore, and start great conversations with other listeners than right here.
As such, we want to continually work to improve everyone's experience of the site and the show. In the coming weeks and months it's likely you'll see some things change, some of which has already started with a new, streamlined theme. We've also added a default forum avatar of our favorite little jawa. Unfortunately in doing so, the avatars of the forum veterans have been erased
. This was an unexpected consequence, and I really do apologize for the inconvenience. However, to help you choose a new one, we've added an Avatar Gallery
with a large collection of avatars from the official forums. Those of you who would like to use your own are still able to do so and, in fact, we encourage it!
We're constantly brainstorming new ways to encourage community interaction, and near the top of the list is a new pop-out podcast player so you can listen to the show while you browse the forum. This is where you guys come in: while Zach and I can take a pretty good guess at features you guys (and gals!) would like to see added to the site, what we really would love is for each of you to chime in! Consider this thread the official place to discuss ideas for how we can improve Mos Eisley Radio in the coming months. While we can't promise to include everything, we want to make a strong effort to build one of the best SWTOR communities around.
May the force be with each and every one of you!
