Welcome to Librarium Online!
So, I was over on the Tau forum, and I noticed that they have a kroot mercenaries sub-forum. It's at the same level as the army lists sub forum
kroot mercenaries were a chapter approved army, but do not have their own codex (and as of a couple of months ago, not approved for official tournaments anymore either)
so, with this premise in mind, that kroot mercs have their own forum (but don't even have a codex), is it way out of line to suggest a Space Wolves sub-forum (who have their own codex)
I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say that there are probably more Space Wolves players than kroot mercenaries players, ...or maybe even, lets say (as an example of an official codex army), Dark Eldar.
This should probably be in Site Feedback.
The Kroot Mercenaries subforum is a carry over from quite a while ago, and should likely be merged into the regular Tau Empire forum at this point, just as the Harlequins subforum was merged with Eldar some time ago. The issue of a possible Space Wolf or some sort of subforum like that was discussed a little while ago (around when the codex first came out, if I recall correctly) and it was decided that it was not needed. Especially as you consider the fact that there are other chapters with their own codices besides Space Wolves... Black Templars, Blood Angels, Dark Angels, etc. Would it be fair to include OR exclude them? A Marine is a Marine is a Marine, after all.
I think the issue here is more that the Kroot Mercenaries subforum shouldn't exist, not that a Space Wolves subforum should.
As Lost Nem mentioned, we should probably get around to merging the Kroot sub-forum with the general Tau forum. It's no longer needed. As to your proposal, creating additional sub-forums generally tend to isolate the community rather than organize it. When people log onto LO in order to check the most recent Space Marine chat, they want (I think) a single forum where all the info is posted, and which doesn't require multiple clicks for viewing all the related material.
In addition, if we made a sub-forum for Space Wolves, then would it not also make sense to create one for each of the other Space Marine Chapters, or for that matter, for each of the chaos traitor legions?

I like the idea of putting the Kroots into the tau forum. I also dont think we need a space wolves forum. Instead we can use tags for this.
I think each codex chapter should have its own forum.
If somebody wants to browse things about Black Templar for example, then they dont have to filter through hundreds of Space Wolves threads.
Chaos - 11W 0L 0D
Orks - 8W 0L 0D
Tyranids - 8W 0L 0D
I dont like to many forums. its way to complicated. We can use tags,then you can filter the tags from the drop down menu and you turn the forum into whatever dedicated forum you want.
Space Marines are Space Marines, regardless of the individual flavours you try and give them. Statlines remain the same, most (with the exception of some) vehicles and wargear remain the same. 90% of conversations about one Space Marine army, you can hold about another Space Marine army, regardless of codex. That's the way I see it.. with the exception of a few units and a couple of special rules, the armies are pretty much the same.
I see no need for a SW forum, or even individual marine chapter forums - in the short term it is understandable, but in the long term it would just kill them all.
As LN points out, marines are marines, regardless of flavour. SW, BT, BA and UM players can still all learn from each other and discuss possible ideas that have worked for them. You get a good mix of ideas as a result.
If each marine army gets its own forum your discussion is limited, and becomes even more dependent on being popular enough (Just because they're marines doesn't mean that DA players are queuing up in droves to express an opinion).
It doesn't matter if you're a beardy red-head or a blondey artist. You're all still in power armour. You all drive the same wagons. They have more things they share than things they don't.
Having an army and not owning a rulebook is like owning a car with no steering wheel.Originally Posted by amishcellphone
