    Default It's amazing how quickly I already hate the new forums

    I can't even use my old username. Trying says that it is not valid.

    Only been using it for 20 years. Thanks, Turbine. Your compulsive need to break things that are fine, and fix nothing that needs it is just awesome.

    And for extra fun, my old avatar isn't available anymore. New forums can't track founders? Fabulous.

    Yep, either the same thing has happened to me, or I've been mistakenly posting from an alt account since F2P beta.

    Oh, and it's nice to know in Turbine's eyes the only two countries that exist are the USA and Canada.

    Unhappy Brit.


    edit: +1 now I figured out how to do it.

    - Did you log in under your game username and password?
    - Have you tried to use the "Select display name" at the top of the page? When I first logged on, it defaulted to an older name for me, but I was able to change it

    Yes.

    Yes, and it told me that my name was invalid until I added these stupid numbers after it.

    I've given up on Turbine.

    Same here. Can the forum name not be the same as the in game login? Mine has always been the same.

    I like the new look, though it will take me a while to get used to where everything is.

    Same here. Looked up my previous forum name and it's still active, somehow, which leads me to believe I've been using the wrong account, or something is wrong/not finished yet.

    The idle auto log out is pretty quick too, it seems....

    I don't know, but there must be something cattywampus going on, as I seem to be the only one with the correct forum name/avatar/join date.

    I can't be the only one doing it right :/

    Well Turbine you failed again. My old name is 'not available' so I have to use even stupider one.

    This "upgrade" has failed miserably.

    The functionality of the old forums has been stripped away, and the interface here is [uglier].



    So not happy.

    Memnir got his to work. Thats not surprising, since he is one with the forums.

    Well i logged in ok and i still have the same user name and the rep seems the same etc.

    Well it will take a while to get used to all this, the overall look of the site is good, as to the forums.... well i will reserve judgement for a while, maybe some better skins will help.

    I saw that. However, I'm not sure how happy he is to be "at one" with the new forums

    I think it's time for a divorce. At the very least, I think I need to start seeing other, more attractive, forums.

    Wow. Can't say I'm a big fan of this new look.
    At first glance, I absolutely hated it. Now I hate it 3% less than I did.

    What are you gonna do?

    Anyone discovered where did they hide the dev tracker?

    Yeah, I am going the opposite way. I loved it at first, but now I starting to not like it as much. Hopefully they'll be able to widen the window so that there won't be as much scrolling to do.

    On the other hand, I love the new ddo.com look

    I think Tolero mentioned that it's currently bugged, but I haven't investigated it yet.
