    It's alive! IT'S ALIVE. The forums anyway. Well, at least it didn't explode with the update...
    Any changelogs for the game yet? The “New posts” section isn't working for me, it seems.

    P.S. Why isn't there an "I'm drunk" post icon. Sigh...

    Default Wooot

    Duh, after being unable to create a forum account for more than a year I seem to have an actual presence at last (sorry folks, to late 2 run now). And while the background is horrilbe and distracting i's kind of a nice change for once.

    Wow this forum looks so retro vintage early 2000 now, and it came with a lot of bug with migrating the accounts... well here's hoping at least it will work as a platform for further improvements, cause right now it's a downgrade not an upgrade

    Default Also Already Annoyed

    I was forced through a process to choose a new forum name, lost all of my history, PMs, etc. On the plus side, I've now got... um, some extra background art? Seriously, couldn't y'all have just changed the CSS for better readability, and left well enough alone?

    Moving forums.ddo.com to ddo.com/forums has broken all links and bookmarks. Is it really that hard to have a redirect in place?

    Dev Tracker isn't working - this is bad.

    The color scheme is horrible, and the central text box is way too small. The Mobile scheme is by far the best to use to view the forums, and this shouldn't be the case.

    Was this even checked with a random cross section of players before going live?

    Tolero:


    I can still Neg Rep folks.


    Pretty sure Neg Rep going away was touted as a feature of the New Forums Experience. Thought you'd like to know.

    Default Testing and news...

    Any news about game update? I can't find related news in forums about today's maintance, nor about the patch notes.

    Thanks in advance!

    PS.: Just a quick FYI, my join date is now because of new forum's rules (using game username to log now). I was a user of old forum, but with a login different from my game account...

    I think the servers are up (haven't looked myself yet).

    As for news on today's maintenance - I think they said they'd talk about it later in the week, with no details given at this time. Could very easily be wrong on that - these new forums are a pain in the posterior. But, I think that was what was said.

    I haven't logged in on my main account yet because I can't set my location to anywhere but "United States" or "Canada", neither of which is accurate. Sigh.

    Oh look, I can use Comic Sans. (An important part of any testing process.)

    So to whoever asked that question earlier, it looks like you can change the font of your own posts but I'm not sure if there's any way to change the default display font for the forums. I didn't see any way to do that but I'm not really sure what I'm doing here yet.

    Well, I really just ignored this, so i could log in forum. Anyway, I did try to log in with my old forum account, but it didn't work. Any of you guys are using your old forum account (if they were different from game login)?
    And, since I'm still here, is MyDDO dead? I really liked the character signatures it provided...

    :-/

    And (haven't checked yet) is DDO Wiki going to be migrated also?

    Default I can't login to forums with my main account

    I set this one up just so I could post this comment.

    I enter my main account name, click USA for location, click box for terms and conditions then click submit and get a message "Can't process your request at this time. Please try again later".

    So just to confirm, there will be no more thread wipes from the old forums after today, right? anything posted today and later will still be around?

    I had planned to post something in the achievements thread, but I had to wait because I didnt get it up before the 19th.

    I guess it's the principle of the thing.


    Yeah, myddo is dead so there won't be pretty signatures anymore. Maybe they'll implement some new way of making shiny signatures. Until then, I will have to go with links to YourDDO pages (click the link in my sig to see what I mean, if you don't already know). Given that half of my characters didn't actually generate working signatures I'm not too cut up about the loss.

    I am not going to say too much as I expect that there will be some themes selection that will take care of some of what is bothering me. Also I hope the current lag is because they are still working in the background, if not then it rivals anything I have seen in game so I guess it's at least a consistent experience ... yaay ???

    I will say that the menu navigation, while interesting, is definitely not "better". I am hoping it was designed the way it was based on how much the particular forum was used.

    All in all I will give it some time but before saying if I like or dislike it but my first impression is not particularly favorable. It seems perhaps designed for mobile use rather than PC?
