Not trying to be an ass. I realize that the forums are "new" and the game guys are busy with new things. HOWEVER I can not recommend a new person to the forums because all the links have been wiped out. Are there any CURRENT and ACTIVE links that would help a person who just got out of Korthos?

Fortunately, there is an easy fix for most forum links; replace the "/en/" with "/forums/"

So this:
www.ddo.com/en/showthread.php?t=195289 (http://www.ddo.com/en/showthread.php?t=195289)
becomes this:
www.ddo.com/forums/showthread.php?t=195289 (http://www.ddo.com/forums/showthread.php?t=195289)

Why Turbine didn't auto-fix / redirect the old links themselves is a mystery to us all... :(

Unbongwah is totally correct. The forum changeover was a disaster. The forum page views have dropped around 80%, that says it all.
