#2277509 Why are these forums dead?

Guru's demise has been greatly exaggerated. I do however think it's role has changed somewhat. We now have sites like dulfy which publish "how to's" within hours of new content, youtube/twitch to give comments and live streams. social media for us to give instant comments and an official site to suck away the rest.

If you tie all this in with Anet's retreat from informal community contact it's no wonder things go quiet from time to time.

Where I see the value of Guru is in the depth of discussion allowed, moderation here while strict is unbiased and it's great to have a place where such discussions can and do take place that is less official and doesn't have the ring of 'state run media' whilst still having the ear of the developers
