And what do we do with those forums when the game goes live? Do we keep them ala the FFXI race forums? From a "forum full of junk" perspective, we have a hardware sticky now (and I'm already getting grief for refering people to it, which means it must be working) and the rest of the rant/cry threads about the terrible despots that are SE will either die off or receive admin attention. And then we're going to be back to a dozen or so threads meandering around the front page.
The Disciplines don't mean anything. You can mix and match and borrow cross class/cross discipline with freedom and ease. Breaking it down that way just means that people are going to have to hop back and forth all over the place as their character builds get more complex.
I am almost positive that no matter how the classes work with each other, they will have a Sub-Forum for each discipline, which may or may not have sub-forum for each class. When you go to the Final Fantasy XIV website they have a page for each Discipline, that has a page for each class. Why wouldn't a forum community focused on the game not have something similar? Even if they wanted to wait because they didn't want to have a forum for each Discipline, at least have another forum just for "Classes" At this point the General Forum is too general in my opinion. There are people who would actually like to theorize, speculate or just plain and talk about their excitement for the classes in the game. All I'm making is a suggestion, it's not that big of a deal.
