Where to Find Info on Launch Day

Recently, we have been experimenting with some new post types that round up questions from the community. We are planning to try something similar to this for The Forbidden Sanctum's launch day and want to give you a heads up about what to expect.

Historically, we've done much of our live (non news-post) communications on Reddit which has worked pretty well for us for the better part of a decade. More recently, we have had requests from players who prefer not to be on reddit to have our primary communications elsewhere so that they can still keep up with relevant information. Though we will still post on Reddit from time to time, we are also ready to try something new.

So far, the recent FAQ posts that we've shared following game news or announcements have been working quite well as a means to consolidate information in one location that is accessible regardless of which social platform you prefer to be part of. We've also started the ongoing Recently Asked Questions post which we have been updating as we answer questions from elsewhere in the community or have updates that are noteworthy but not big enough to warrant an entire post.

We plan to continue with these round-up posts with the goal of making it possible for players to keep up with our communications without having to visit social platforms they don't like. As an example, for this recent announcement period, you can keep up with all official news about The Forbidden Sanctum by visiting the announcement forum to keep up with news posts, the teaser thread to keep up with new spoilers, or the Recently Asked Questions thread to get more minor updates that have been posted elsewhere.

On The Forbidden Sanctum's launch day, we will have a dedicated post in the announcement forum that we'll update live through the day. It should include answers to common questions or other issues we become aware of. We will also cross-post the headlines from this post on Twitter as backup in case the site is unavailable. We will still be tracking feedback from everywhere so there's no need to move platforms unless you want to but if you're looking to keep up with what's happening, you can find the information we're sharing in the aforementioned places.

After The Forbidden Sanctum's launch, we're planning to keep updating our Recently Asked Questions thread, and periodically round-up community questions that will appear in both the Recently Asked Questions thread and in their own news posts alongside our plans for upcoming patches etc.

All relevant posts will be in the announcement forum but for easy navigation, you can always access the Recently Asked Questions post by going to pathofexile.com/raq

We are still experimenting with how to best formulate these posts so it's a great time to let us know your experiences and any suggestions you may have for improving them.

Lovely stuff
Sounds good, thank you!
Really appreciate the effort you folks put into iterating on the way you communicate over time. It is much appreciated, not only for my enjoyment of path of exile but it is professionally inspiring and I have blatantly stolen some of your techniques for work purposes :D
Feels like relief somehow. Nice to have info consolidated without clutter and noise. This is a good direction, away from third party stuff.
It would be helpful if this post was pinned to the front page so that we don't have to chase it down the news archive after a couple of days.
if you are going to go ahead and cross post to twitter(you know... one of the most toxic social media communities there is) can you also just cross post on reddit as well instead of ignoring it completley.

this way people can choose where to interact with it.

edit:... part of why people don't like interacting on forums is GGGs(or any other companies) censorship down to the rated G level about feelings on certain topics, calling twitter what it really is isn't hateful or needlessly negative. Some times your edits make the posts look more negative and hateful than they originally were.

How will POE2 and POE coexist?
