Welcome
Welcome to the Darth Sion Server Forum!  Although we are disappointed by the fact that Bioware decided NOT to implement their own server forums, that won't stop us from building a community by ourselves, for ourselves.  So, stop by, say hello to the dark side!  

We have both public forums, as well as private forums.  So, if you're a regular part of the Darth Sion server, just click on join and register (it's free) and get access to the private forums!

No QQing on these forums please, save that for the SWTOR forums.

We are also looking for a WebMaster going forward to help us improve the look and feel of this site, so please let us know if you're interested!
     
Please also help spread the word of these forums to everyone you can on our server and your guild!

Bioware Defends it's decision NOT to have Server Forums

Mao, Jan 3, 12 3:18 PM.
With the launch of Star Wars: The Old Republic came a new and improved forum system for the community, and everyone lived happily ever after. Right? Yeah... not so much. It turns out that BioWare neglected to include individual server forums for its many, many, many shards, and this omission has rankled some players who were looking forward to talking amongst their new communities on the site.

TOR-Talk got in touch with BioWare to ask about why the individual server forums were cut down to four ruleset forums. Senior Community Coordinator Allison Berryman says the decision was a matter of practicality as there would be too many forums and not enough moderators to go around: "Generally speaking, server forums for many MMOs tend to be largely un-moderated and can become unpleasant to visit."

Instead, BioWare hopes that server communities create and moderate their own server-specific sites and forums. "This is also a great opportunity for the community to come together in their own ways – on fan sites and through other resources," Barryman said. "Of course, we want people to visit the official forums, and will use them to provide information that's of specific interest to the community, but we also love to see the community coming up with cool stuff on their own."
