    Exclamation Forum Update!

    Good Afternoon! We are in the process of deploying the new DDO website and new forums today! Please note the following:

    • Remember: to log into the new forums, use your game login.
      • Your existing forum name is now your display name to other users.
      • If you are new to the forums, log into the site with your game login and you will be prompted to create a forum display name.
      • With this update it is now possible to manage your account settings/create new forum accounts.
      • If you are experiencing issues with your display name / post history please click here!

    • You may notice several changes occurring to the forums throughout the day! Please excuse our dust while we work.
      • Bug reports can be submitted to the "web" category of the bug reporting tool. NOTE: The bug reporting tool should not be used for urgent issues that require assistance! For assistance related issue, please continue to use the support ticketing system at support.turbine.com

    • The forums will be reflecting post topics from April 19th.
      • As previously stated, posts that were made between the 19th and prior to today's deployment will not be recovered.

    • Known Issues:
      • The dev tracker is currently not displaying properly. We are working to correct this.
      • The reputation system is temporarily disabled, but the rep button still appears on posts.
      • We are currently investigating an issue with periodic authentication time outs, impacting the ability to log into myaccount, the game, and the old/new websites. If you receive an error when attempting to log into the site, please try again.


    Thanks for your patience, and welcome to the new forums!

    Default Country choices

    This looks very swish and shiny and new....

    Any chance of adding some countries other than the US and Canada to the screen name creation options?

    Thumbs up Quite Nice :)

    I like the look so far! I can't wait to see what it looks like when the dust settles.

    One question: will we be able to change themes at all? I only see options for Community Default and Mobile (which is nice by the way).

    Thanks

    Default Colors are better

    At least my eyes are not playing jenga after 2 minutes of reading like in the old forum. Good job designers.

    Any way of adjusting the default font size? Everything is gigantic, I like tiny fonts so nosy people can't read over my shoulder.

    White text on white background is unreadable. I shouldn't have to highlight a forum post just to read it. It's annoying and clearly an error in QC.

    Thanks for splitting the classes backup. For the rest of it, meh. I'll adapt, but honestly I don't see an improvement other than the return of class specific forums and once again I'm disappointed that so many resources went to something for so little apparent gain.

    I don't understand what is going on here.

    I log in and I see this train wreck.

    On top of that but had several builds bookmarked of which the links are now broken.

    Must say not happy that resources were spent on this.

    I'm blunt as a rock and can seem aggressive because of it. Be aware of that when reading my posts.

    Thank you and please do.

    In order to log into the forums I had to go to my account and change my location to the USA. Untill I did that I was unable to log in. I am now concerned when it comes time for my account renewal it will cause the Credit card payment to bomb as the country that I live in is NOT the USA.

    (Obviously I'm cranky today as I really resented the fact that Turbine seems to think the rest of the world aside from the USA and Canada doesn't exist, normally I would just shake my head and not worry too much)

    Default Forum changes

    I had a little trouble logging into the new forums also. I eventualy logged in with my account info from the login server and created a new forum account. As with all changes there will be some getting used to the new format and a few bugs to deal with. I personaly think the new look is cleaner, easy to navigate once i noticed where the links were located (dev tracker is still missing though) and alot less cluttered. My only complaint (other than no dev tracker) is i couldnt figure out how i could list my characters names with my profile as before, otherwise nice job. You will never please everybody, this is DDO afterall :P

    You only needed to do the first part but thank you for your input as it lead me to another post which told me about the just having to fill in the e-mail confirmation field on "My Turbine.com"

    Here's what I did : OK Problem solved , Able to log into forum with same old name (no need to create new one)now after using game launcher "Account" button then confirming my e-mail address on "My Turbine site and saving and exiting that page.

    Im gonna try and sticky this somewhere so 100s of other people dont have to waste 3 hours like I just did finding all this out
