Imagine a perfect pre-beta fansite. What would you like to see? What sections of the site would interest you most. What features do you think would put the site over the top?

On the official forums, folks often post about their "VG Wishlists." What is your "SV Wishlist"?

A jetpack for Elrar, so that he may avoid traffic, and get home faster to work on the site more!

Thats the ticket! =)

But yes as content manager I'm curious to see what fellow future players want and even expect from a top notch fansite.

Pleas, give me alot of work to do, kill my weekends while you're at it!

Just dont let me let you down :D

That was a goal. Check out the FAQ and Wiki for a start.

A faulty jetpack for Elrar, so that we may all OOoooo, and Aaaawwweee, as his smoking hiney trails off into the distance.

a compilation of the information that has been released in a well organized format.

Another great option would be to check out our FAQ (http://www.silkyvenom.com/forums/faq.php?faq=vg_faq_parent).

The correct answer is, of course, "fantasy-themed porn."

The serious answer is a little less fun. As a newcomer to the Vanguard community, I can say I've been looking for the following tidbits with varying degrees of success:

1. Beta and release calender estimates
2. Class / race information and permissible combinations
3. Specific, thorough information on skills and attributes
4. Information on the silkyvenom guild members that aren't named "Oloh" (he's the only one I actually know IRL).

My point, I guess, is that all the fluff in the world won't save a site if you don't have a lot of hard information. As there really isn't any hard information out there yes, there isn't much we can do except wait.

Oh dear, oh dear.

The trouble is that a lot of information is still in the works, or is at a stage at which Sigil does not wish to release it. Rule out beta announcements, they will be on the main site. Class/Race information tends to be on the main site, or in fansite interviews - and some sites tend to ask for articles on particular topics. Ditto with skills.

Really all of the information is in the Wiki, people just need to be encouraged to look.

I have moved my Wiki comments here (http://www.silkyvenom.com/forums/showthread.php?p=10635#post10635) where I believe they can live a far happier life.
