Professions Forum - How to use

Hi Folks!

There has been a few new threads in the GW2 Talk area on the professions so I thought it best to have this forum here.

This allows all Profession discussion to be a bit clearer and away from any other GW2 chat.

How to use
You'll notice that threads in this section have a [Prefix] to them to highlight which profession the thread is about, this is to make threads easier to identify and search.

To add a prefix when creating a thread there will be a drop-down list next to the thread title box, from there just select the appropriate prefix and continue creating your thread as normal.


Hope this is useful to everyone, if anyone has any suggestions for improvements or questions please post here or let me know by PM.

I would say give each profession it's own titled sub folder under the parent GW2 Professions one, then you can just click on the prof you are interested in rather than search for them or be mesmerised by the rainbow colours ,

Edit - Listing them in Heavy / Medium / Light alphabetised order also as such:
Guardian
Warrior
Engineer
Ranger
Thief
Elementalist
Mesmer
Necromancer

On second thought maybe just regular aphabetical as that looks a bit messy

Thanks Gruff.

At the moment we don't want lots of sub-forums as there aren't enough threads. If we find there are lots and lots of profession threads then we can see about creating a sub-forum for each.
For now you should be able to select from a drop-down at the bottom of the forum page to filter for threads of that Profession.

The colours can be disabled if it makes things easier to read, or changed if there is a problem with any of them displaying.

Appreciate the feedback.

imo it would be much more elegant if we incorporated new icons for the professions. Instead of having [MESMER] in the title it'd be a regular title with the class icon where the lightbulb/hot topic icon would be.

Jazzy. If anyone knows of a plugin that can do this I am try it out. One that supports custom images I guess. Would be much easier on the eye.
I'll have a search when I have time.
Nice idea Jinx.
