    Can I make request?

    Can all Sid Meyer's Startships threads get their own subforum?

    If not, then they should go to All Other Games subforum.

    It's not sequel to Beyond Earth, it's not its expansion, it's not even 4X game.

    I just shares same world as Beyond Earth, and that is not enough, IMO, for its threads to mingle in general Beyond the Earth forum.

    I can understand some people get hyped. But some people just want to read about 4X Beyond the Earth game, and are not interested in the slightest about Starships sharing same forum space.

    I kind of have to agree, even as somebody who is very interested in Starships. At the moment, a lot of the Starships discussion is mixed with people who claim stuff like "BE was abandoned for Starships!" and similar stuff, which - to some extent - drowns out actual discussion about Starships.

    Having its own forum would give each game more breathing space - after all, the connections can still be discussed in a few threads dedicated to discussing the connection instead of being a general hodge-podge.

    This said, I think a lot of people might still default to posting in the Civ:BE forums simply because it's at the top of the list while the "Other Games" section is waaaaay down (which is a bit annoying for something new and hence more traffic-heavy like Starships).

    I actually think it's good that they're not yet separated, as much of the information about starships also has a lot to do with (what happens with) Beyond Earth.

    And frankly, all the threads I know of have "Starships" in their name, so.. it shouldn't be too hard to just not click them.

    /edit: Although Lord Tirian has a point, maybe having its own forum + a "centralized" Thread for Starship-BE-related stuff would be a better solution.

    Yup. They didn't want to distract from the gem that is CIV:BE

    I'm dissapointed that the moderators just dumped the threads into the "all other games" forum without even giving the game it's own subforum. Even games like Colonization, Pirates! have their own subforum, why not Starships? Just dumping the threads loose in the "all other games" is a sure way of destroying any chance for people to discuss the game.

    I'm thinking once the game is released it will have it's own forum. Until then though, it does seem like it could get lost over there.
