    After a long time away from the on-topic forums, I have been surprised by the low activity of both Civ3 general and PtW forums.

    It seems to me the PtW forum has outlived its usefulness : it was created for PtW only discussions at the time the expansion didn't hit the shelves, and it had to relieve the Civ3 forum of a huge PtW related traffic.
    Today, most people play Civ3 with PtW, and the traffic in both forums isn't huge either, so there is little sense to separate them anymore IMHO.

    Besides, I think it would be more convenient to browse one forum when it comes to talks about Civ3, rather than 2.

      I agree, Spiffor. As you said, most of the players already own both Civ3 and PtW, and many issues that are debated belong to both games, actually.
      I watched you fall. I think I pushed.

          It seems as if you ae right. The PTW forum doesn't seem to be needed any more. There are posts in both the forums that are related to PTW, and there are some posts in the PTWforum that is more general then PTW, and the posts about original Civ3 are not very many any more.

          A merge could be good to get the posts to return to the topic. Now I at least feel that it's hard to mionitor both the General and the PTW forum.

              Do we know "most" Civ3 owners also have PTW?

              How do we know that?

                  It is a mere assumption, of course, and it could not be the case... but we're talking about this particular forum, and most of the members* here are "hardcore" strategy lovers, so it is possible that most of them have got the expansion pack as well.

                  *At least the frequent posters, I'm not referring to the casual players, which seems to be the case of some newbies.

                      It's not the fact that they must have PTW, but the fact that there are very few that doesn't and the "General" user has PTW, that's why the general forum is used for PTW discussion as well, which means that a PTW user would have to visit bothe the forums.

                        I would vote yes but it won't let me for some reason.

                        There seems little point in having to check both forums.
