The idea here is simple: Instead of desperately trying to get your post seen on reddit or on Steam on a decentral place, wouldn’t it be better if there was a forum for every official server that the community playing on there could use to chat and exchange informations? That way no one needs to see posts that are not relevant for him or her, while anyone can find posts pertaining to a specific server easily. That’s why we’ve created the unofficial offical server forums.
We think that this will help to encourage community-building even on official servers, and (for example) give the server population a better chance to organize. Additionally, we’ve created a dynmap for each server, which is accessable from within the forum.
