BioWare is shutting down their forums.
I've put the post up in its entirety since the forums are not just being archived - they're being completely deleted.
Top choices (and the two where I will be):
BSN [Bioware Social Network] Unofficial Forums at bsn.boards.net
Fextralife Game Forums at www.fextralife.com
http://topshelfgaming.boards.net - Ex-BioWare-ians, off topic
http://vroomvroom.freeforums.net - Ex-BioWare-ians, off topic, more strictly moderated
http://www.rpgcodex.net - RPG in generalhttps://realdragonagefans.forums.net/ - Dragon Age specific
Most of the above do not have forums for the older, legacy games. The following are where you can find community for those*:
Neverwinter Nights 1 and 2
The Neverwinter Vault
NWN1 and 2 on Nexus
Facebook NWN Community Group
Baldur's Gate 1 and 2
These are not competing boards - you could join them all and get something different from all of them. Topshelfgaming was set up as off-topic when BioWare shut down their Off Topic boards and tried to force those discussions into the rest of the forum. Vroomvroom is another of the same with a different moderating style (more strict).
Fextralife has other game forums such as Dark Souls 3, and wikis and articles for the games as well. So there is a board for every play/chat style - even more than one.
I am still gathering my thoughts about this and will post them later; wanted to get the list of possible new forums out first. I've messaged quite a few people on the board about this so that they know - 90% have not logged in for a very long time, and the rest I could not tell because that part of their profile was set to private. A few of them have signed on and posted in Fexelea's thread, and I'm hoping more make it before the forums go read-only.
Is everyone landing safely? Don't be afraid to tweet, post, or email about this so that people who have been gone from the forum for a while can find out about it. Spread the word!
*Thank you to Lady Artifice on the BioWare forum for putting a list together there - the NWN and BG links were copied from there
