    Does this mean that MyDDO is out of Beta now?

    You do know what an absolutely horrible security move that is, right?

    [*] The reputation system will be revamped to allow only positive reputation to be issued.
    Just get rid of it then. Positive without negative is pointless.

    [*] Our bug reporting system is being revamped. Soon you will no longer need a forum login in order to submit bug reports
    Well that will be nice

    You should have at least a couple of weeks, probably longer. We'll announce a more solid time a bit closer to the actual shift to the new forums and such.

    I'm especially concerned that you want us to use our game log-in to log into the forums. You know, the one attached to my credit card info? Yeah. That one. It's a supremely bad idea.

    This I do not see why this change is necessary at all, I do not want to put my account into a compromising position.

    The rep system after thinking about it really do not see the point of keeping it at all now.

    And I am sad that we are losing the blogs and wont know if they will ever come back

    And here I was thinking: finally, a company that allows a defense in depth security approach instead of putting all the eggs in one basket...

    What's next? Integration with facebook account?

    Will there possibly be an option for in-character blogging? (The current one has been broken anyways, so it'd be a nice improvement)

    I cant say that i am very surprised with this news, Turbine didn't care about MyDDO alooooonng time ago.

    A bit sad about the API (character data and other stuff) and the log being discontinued as well, it basically killed DDOViewer as it is and all other tools out there.

    Anything planned to replace the API?
    A new API perhaps?

    Too many people use the rep system as a opinionated like dislike button. There is still a consequence for disruptive/trolling/attacking posts, its called the report button. It was far too easy for people to troll the new guys rep into automod oblivion simply due to disagreement. Now if report is abused, there are possible consequences for that too, and its far more noticed by a mod than if neg rep is abused.

    I prefer a forum system with a report button only. That way people cant add or subtract rep simply due to agree/disagree. The post either violates forum guidelines or it doesnt. No one deserves "consequences" due to differing opinion.

    I approve of this measure, and would approve more if they just made it a report only system.

    Advocating repeated nerfs in the name of "balancing the game" then complaining about how DDO is moving away from D&D, is a direct contradiction in logic - D&D 3.5 (what DDO is based on) is not a balanced game. We can either have a balanced clone MMO with homogenized classes, or we can have a D&D game. We cant have both.

    That really sucks.

    Devs...are there plans on putting out a more robust API so we can get character data and guild data? Not just stats...but character inventory...quest completions...favor totals...etc... Or...are you killing off any potential fanbase app development?

    As for using game log on as forum log on - this is a bad move, for the afore mentioned security reasons.

    Angry Security Nightmare.

    Forum passwords should be SEPARATE from Game login passwords for security.

    That way if the forum gets hacked the hacker doesn't get our game passwords.

    So... while your soon to be direct competitor is creating a gateway that allows the player to do allot of stuff out of game (mail, AH, etc, etc) you kill the little you had in that area...

    Good move Turbine, good move...

    Given the huge security hole that having a forum account now appears to be once they integrate it with the game login is there going to be a method which we can delete our forum accounts and prevent our login account from functioning on the forums?

    If I have to expose my account to the forums which would give access to things I actually pay real money for I want something better than the poor track record of forum security to safeguard my account. So is there a way we can opt out of this change or at least nuke our current account to close this gap?

    I will miss the forums for it's advise and the odd post I make myself but I do not want to expose my game account in this way.

    Interesting use of the word "upgrade". I shall have to bring this to the attention of the dictionary people.
    It's definitely an N-word.

    I would also like to know if this is possible.

    I disagree heavily with the use of game accounts for forum access.

    If my characters woudl actually have been updating you'd have more feels from me. But as they haven't updated properly in years... GOOD RIDDANCE.

    Sure.. AFTER the LOTRO forums caused all forums to be shut down for days... (weeks?) Due to the fact they were not secure, Turbine IGNORED the warnings and step by step instructions of how to get access to private information, and... well, do you really need me to continue?
