My thoughts:For PvE, this is a great idea. All the blue posts should be consolidated into the designated DPS, Tank, or Healing forum. Any intelligent discussion about Raiding should be about Healing, Tanking, or DPS'ing. Blizzard thinks of PvE as a 3 role system, therefore, they should discuss any changes, as a 3 role system. As a guild leader, I'm consistently turned off by the forums simply because everything is horribly scattered. Everyone is too terribly focused on their specific 'class' that they forget that the role is more important. Hopefully, with the role forums, we can have discussions on how to improve the role as a whole (i.e. tanking changes) rather than improving (or nerfing) a specific class.Of course, the class forum is important as well to speak about individual bugs, nuances, rotations, gear optimization, etc...It's funny this is coming about because I changed my guild ranks around this idea about 3months back. Instead of having individual class leaders, I've consolidated it into 4 roles: Tank Leader, Healer Leader, Ranged DPS Leader, and Melee DPS Leader. I split up the DPS to alleviate the amount of researching one DPS leader would have to do. I believe this will strengthen my leaders knowledge in how a raid is run, and how to keep everyone happy and on top of their game. It also helps out the guild as a whole by not having 12 leaders in a guild of 30 (and it relieves the stress of me having to do everything!).For PvP, there is no other way than individual class forums. I found it shocking that they were even thinking about reorganizing the forums into PvE roles.VenRize of Gorefiend
