NWO-Uncensored redirect to blog.nwo-uncensored.com

Not sure what others think about the change and I know why you did it. But I liked being able to access the forums directly. Now i have use https://nwo-uncensored.com to access the forums, where before i could use type nwo-uncensored.com and get to the forums :p

IMO it's more 'natural' that the main domain goes to the blog. Now with the new design, the articles and links I think it's what people look for and less these forums.

What perhaps could be done, is to make "forum.nwo-uncensored.com" redirect here to index.php
or even move it there?

And here on the forums, need a big link to the blog, I was using the link to the forums, and always would press the logo on top left thinking it will get me to the blog/main site (instinctively).
I know there is a "Go to NW unblogged" but it merges with the topic and I'm "auto filtering it out"

I'm listening for suggestions. https://forum.nwo-uncensored.com/ is now pointing to the forum.

As Janne pointed out, the blog has developed into the main "feature" of our site, so redirecting there instead of the forum makes sense. And it's really only an issue if you've bookmarked nwo-uncensored.com directly or were used to come here through the root domain.

If you don't know the redirect, there's zero chance you'll find it through google or other referrals.

The Forum-link at the bottom of the blog still points to nwo-uncensored.com, which is now the blog. So i typed in the adress, got redirected to the blog, which was surprising, tried to go 'manually' by clicking the forum link at the bottom and STILL ended up on the blog. For a sec i thought fforum was a goner o.0 Better fix this, is confusing af :D

The subdomains are also consistent of what we're trying to do in the future. guilds.nwo-uncensored.com will point to our guild database etc. It's a nice way of "categorizing" content.
