I planned this project a long time ago when I first clashed with the mods of the official forum and felt an unofficial, community driven alternative had to be available. To be clear: Although I think some mods do overstep boundaries, overall they are doing a tremendous job to keep the board clean. It’s not particularly the mods but rather a very annoying and narrow-minded set of rules that interfere with any normal conversation. Also their zero tolerance policy regarding criticism of personnel or even just talk about the support is quite puzzling. I regularly find myself in a position where I want to exchange experience on how to deal with official sources the best way in a certain situation. This talk is bound to take place ingame or via the private messaging and I think a platform might help.
After pondering over the name, I think I could have gone with something less fierce, like unfiltered, but I like the extra kick in the name and after all this is how I felt when I finally decided to create the project. I get that this is a great way to create an environment for the banned, quitters, whiners, outlaws and suspended to voice their frustration and troll around, but I’m giving it a try anyway because I hope the benefits will outweigh any downside. Unbiased and uncensored talk about drop rates, the effect of exploits and other real talk could even contribute to get Neverwinter to a better state.
This project also tries to fill the need of a trade forum in the international realms, although I have no clue whether it is going to be used, and you can share your media without the need for it to be verified. I might even try to get a RPG section going, but I have to figure out how that can work. In the meantime, enjoy what’s already there and fire away!
