    Okay, an idea I recently came up with was that the hive could have a replay resource section for sc2 (and possibly warcraft 3, but this is less likely to be as active). The primary reason having this as a resource section rather than a sticky thread is so that moderators could be active in the section and deal with spam replays that are not good. Additionally, it would be easier to navigate through a resource section than a thread, allowing users to look up certain tags so they are able to look at different strategies as they desire.

    So, Hive, your thoughts?

    U donatez monies to ralle for 10 TB of memory space for replay sections then. Probably cost a lot of monies.

    This is just a suggestion to allow for informative resources on gameplay to be organized in an orderly fashion as well as to allow the better players of the hive to assist some of the newer players of the hive in improving their strategies.

    This is a modding community, so it wouldn't be that particularly helpful. There are far better places to go to learn about how to play melee, namely sites/communities specifically for serious melee players.

    Even though some people like playing melee, most of them are pretty bad and wouldn't benefit/contribute much with such a system. Having it would just mean that we get tons of 'meh' replays, and it would require a lot of extra moderation as it can easily take over 30 minutes just to watch a replay.

    This is true that it is a modding community, but imo in order to mod a game you must first understand the game. Additionally, there are a large number of sc2 players that could benefit from this.

    But perhaps more interestingly is that a section like this could help attract members that don't necessarily mod the game but rather play the game. More members = more donations = more moniez for Ralle.

    Considering how few people use the replay thread I doubt it would be very useful.

    As much as I would love, it won't have a fertile soil here exactly due to the the fact that this is a mapmaking forum.
