Paradox Interactive, publishers of the recently released Majesty 2, have announced that they have a very busy forum.  It's reached the point of nearly out-of-control since the forum has just surpassed the 10 million post count with 170,000 members.  That's a whole lot of trolls keeping busy since its launch in 2004. 

The forums will most likely continue to stay busy as Paradox Interactive has plenty of already announced items to be released in the near future along with a number of "unannounced projects."  The full release schedule is in the press release if you'd like to see what's on deck.
