    Well I can say I am not surprised, I do think it sucks that those individuals that spent so much time building great tools for the community, like YourDDO, DDO Lottery Watcher, DDO Viewer to name a few, will no longer be able to showcase their work. And without a way for these tools and other to continue to be able to work then there is less incentive for anyone else to build any new tools.

    So kill myDDO, fine whatever, but please make it so people still have some way of creating cool tools for the community to use.

    BTW, what does this mean for the in-game browser?

    Thank you again. My experience in the last couple of years has been that negative rep is only used as a cudgel when people simply disagree.

    P.S. I assume the report button will remain for posts?

    Hi there, I kinda just threw up in my mouth when I read this, so pardon the bad breath.

    Please don't do this. Its not that I don't trust turbines security code, but, well I don't.

    We have already seen how secure the linked forum/game account info, supposedly protected by turbine, is when you had the LOTRO debacle last year. To proactively remove another layer of security from the game is asinine. Its idiotic.

    Do not do this. I implore you. You (you being turbine - not you personally) will mess this up. Based on the track record so far, its almost impossible that it wont get bjorked.

Exporting your blog will create an XML file containing all your blog entries, comments, and images, which can be imported into a variety of blogging platforms.

    • Character and guild data will be discontinued. Please note that this will also impact any systems that rely on character data including guild leaderboards, challenge leaderboards, and API functionality.
    • The lottery system will also be discontinued. We will be focusing on giving prizes via other mediums such as forum and social media giveaways.
    • The Character Copy tool is being revamped and migrated to DDO.com. Stay tuned for announcements once this feature is available at its new URL.
    • The DDO referral system is being revamped and migrated to DDO.com. Please note that if you currently have active referrals, you will continue to accrue bonus points from your existing referrals, but you will be unable to redeem bonus points from your referral wallet or add new referrals until the new front-end of the referral system is launched on DDO.com. Stay tuned for announcements once the new URL is available.

    Thanks for your patience as we work on the websites! We will bring more information and announcements as they are available.

    I would like it if this was cynicism, or pessimism... but I'm afraid it is more like realism, sadly.
    It's definitely an N-word.

    I dislike this. Call me paranoid but I really don't want to be logging to the forums with game credentials on public computers...

    Also why kill the myddo data completely, kill the site sure but surely making the data available in some easy format for 3rd party sites/software wouldn't be too difficult. I really liked how EVE Online for example handled API keys, community made some pretty awesome programs with it like EVEmon.

    All else aside, this is a change that has been needed since the day they merged them together.

    While the looks comment is my opinion, the hacking is actual fact. Both on it happening more AND of what Turbine let happen when a weakness was discovered and they were warned.

    This a damn shame. Many enjoyed blogging, as well as reading those blogs. To do away with those without even a plan for future blogging? Bad form.

    This will kill a large part of YourDDO, as well as my own guilds roster on our site. Once again, bad form.

    Did we really expect any less after they hired someone from Zynga? Bad form X3 Turbine.

    I know... therefore, it does look a lot more like realism than the other things.

    Forums

    The forums are going to be upgraded to a newer version of vBulletin. After the upgrade, you will use your DDO game login credentials to log into the forums, and your current forum name will become your display nickname. You will retain all of your existing posting history, reputation, etc. If you're new to the forums, you'll be able to select a display nickname the first time you log into the forums with your game credentials. Other notable changes include:

    • The forum styling/appearance will be updated.
    • We will be adding a new forum home page that includes forum category navigation and feeds of recent turbine announcements/recent player discussions.
    • We will also be opening individual class forums again.
    • The reputation system will be revamped to allow only positive reputation to be issued.
    • Our bug reporting system is being revamped. Soon you will no longer need a forum login in order to submit bug reports, and we will be able to process bug reports more quickly. We will update the bug reporting links as soon as the new system is available. Please continue to use the existing bug reporting tool until the new one is in place, as we are still reviewing bugs submitted through it.

    Compendium

    The DDO Compendium will be discontinued. We will be migrating official guides to the updated DDO.com website. Users with guides or guild pages in the Compendium should migrate their content to another location, such as the guides or recruitment forums.

    MyDDO

    Several MyDDO components will be moving to DDO.com or retiring. Details are as follows:

    • The current player blog functionality will be discontinued. We are investigating ways of bringing blogging to players in the community site, but in the meantime existing player blogs can be exported for use at a later time.

    Question How much time do we have?

    To pull any unique images or other work off of the Compendium and myDDO before it is all gone?

    Well, since they just say "April", I would plan on April 1, so that would be about 3 days.

    Somewhere, deep inside of me, even though I know better, I'm still hoping this is some sort of weird, "April Fools" joke...

    Why not just kill the whole thing?

    The forums were better before we had the system at all, and now if you are going to make it just Positive Rep, we'd be better off going back to being without it. If you are changing the forums enough to change the way Rep works... just turn the whole damn thing off and call it a failed experiment along with MyDDO.


    And, again, I say this from atop the Rep heap.
    It's a bad system, and just removing Neg Rep won't make it all that much better.

    Lacking words to describe how disappointed I am...

    Can you just keep classes/ability/worn equipment at least?
    It's very nice to be able to tell a character's generation story by it's my.ddo page.
    Losing it will be really sad for me.
    I don't care...
