/raid timers? no, pretty sure it's just /quest

One option would have been to put character sheets in a private mode, even unable to retrieve via the API, depending on a checkbox of the UI, like the one that links it to the profile. But despite missing this, MyDDO itself wasn't a bad thing.
So yeah, Nobel created the dynamite to help in mines and the creation of tunnels, just to notice that some people wanted to use it to make bombs. However that didn't mean the discovery of dynamite was a bad thing. But sure, everything can be used for a bad purpose, but it always boils down what people do with something. It's not the tool or object which is bad, it's the people who used it for the wrong reason.
* We have collectable bags, hell even hireling folders, but can I have that 6-pack for my potions please?
* Having already a past life on the dieng EU servers, I rerolled here and started from scratch as I like the game and the community, so lets see what awaits me here
Checking a player/examine function that shows all the gear and buffs has been used in many other MMO's. When examaning another player, the Onscreen chat reads " Player XXXX is examining you." I always used the come back when a Player you examined gives you a funny emote . "Hey, Don't worry, Im a Doctor"
This function will make the Hud for the examine window larger and we will soon be running out of room with all the item on it already.
We could go back to playing "Wizardry" and texting all our combat, that would save alot of money on video cards.

if other people can look up my build on YourDDO or MyDDO or any other site, I want the option to be private that I can check on or off. run with me and judge me. don't judge me by looking at what I wore when I logged off last.
1) I will be sad to lose YourDDO
2) The Credit Card Info thing does sound worrisome. I'm honestly just not savvy enough with forum scripting to know if it's significantly easier to hack a forum account or an actual account - if the risk is similar then I don't get the hullaballoo - but like I said I'm ignorant on this, and therefore worried by the volume of people who are concerned.
3) I'm most annoyed by the loss of neg rep though.
I'll give a hypothetical to demonstrate why:
A poster might put a guide in the 'new player section' that pretty much guaranteed any new players who read and followed it would have a bad time in DDO by CON dumping their character. In the past, the community would have responded to this by a mass dumping of neg-rep for Trolling / Awful Advice / Inflammatory Nonsense. It isn't the kind of thing that is actually breaching forum guidelines though, such that "Reporting" would be inappropriate.
4) I'm pleased Individual Class Forums are back! A spoonful of sugar!

All of my builds are grossly out of date. Just roll a human or drow mechanic / assassin rogue thing.
Blind insta-kills floating eye balls.
Despite it's flaws, I'm sad to see it go.
The lotteries were amusing when I could enter them. Really enjoyed the way that the event related items were up for grabs when the events came around. I do like the new daily dice but I did a bunch of rolls on silver and gold on Lamannia and didn't see anything event related (Crystal Cove was running when I did those rolls).
The ability to look up your character had only mild appeal but it was there when you wanted it. Used it most when I was out of town and couldn't play, just to ease the DT's. Would like to see something like this come back someday.
Challenge boards are leaving? Permanently? But ...we just got them. And Crystal Cove was just added to them. They didn't inspire me to work for 1st place, but it was interesting knowing where you placed relative to other players.
The API is being reduced? We need more apps, not less.
What does this mean for the DDO Chronicle? That's still going to be around in some form, right?
Compendium gone? Never found it useful.
Blogs gone? I kind of feel sorry for the bloggers and their fans.
Challenge Boards? Doesn't matter.
Lotteries? Now that's a shame I liked those..
Combined Game/Forum password? Going to buy a prepaid Visa and call it a day I suppose.
Although I am still concerned about account breaches, I find that my best option (seeing as Turbine still has not commented on the matter) was to ask Turbine Support to delete all personal information attached to my account that lingered in the DDO-store (which Turbine cheerfully deleted, and had even gone as far as to offer to delete the e-mail from file).
Also, one could make a "dummy" account that is effectively seperate from the main account (thus, any breach would result in "them" not being able to get into your account).

It will be a disaster combining game password and forum password. There are big reasons why game companies don't do that and with turbine it will cause more problems.. Turbine stores our private information including credit cards inside the game account. If there will be a breach in the forum, that means we are also handling the culprit full access of our credit card.
It is easier to fix a breached coming from 1 source than possible multiple entries/breach.
The ANTI-Realms FANBOI NUKE THE REALMS ITS THE ONLY REAL WAY TO BE SURE
The existing API will continue to operate after April 24th, though there may be periodic interruptions of service.
Glad to see that for those who have developed 3rd party apps using it.
Glad to see myddo phased out. The data has always been grossly inaccurate and was often misused. Since there was obviously no chance it would ever be made correct and made private, I am glad to see it gone. I am a bit disappointed to see that the bad data API will be retained. That just means we will be plagued by inaccurate 3rd party apps that some people will continue to misuse. Would have been better to just turn it off for good.
I already miss the lotteries, since they have not worked for my main account for more than 6 months, so no real loss there.
I am a bit concerned about the merging of IDs and passwords. May have to change how I pay for DDO.
Not thrilled about the emphasis on social media. Not even DDO can get me to go there.
