State of the Forums

No other section of PlanetDiablo is more active than our glorious set of forums for discussing the Diablo series, and we present a State of the Forums address to you each week. In this feature, each moderator from PlanetDiablo's forums takes a look back at the previous week and notes certain happenings, including interesting stories and forum topics to check out and contribute to. PlanetDiablo is proud to bring you the State of the Forums, as a way to help anyone get more involved in the forums as well as start themselves off. You'll see a new edition of the State of the Forums each Tuesday.
