    Default Can we have the old forums back please?

    So, can we have the old forums back please? This is just aweful.

    Talk about a nerf!

    I anticipated there would be an adjustment period... I did not anticipate such a feeling of total disdain.

    Large busy stretched background images are, like, so last millennium.

    Thumbs up

    I like it, sometimes change is a good thing. It no longer looks like a generic forum page.

    I probably will not be coming back here very often, a loss on my part for sure,...the new forums gives me headaches, it's visualy painful to read, threads overlap each other and are unclickable, , switched to mobile skin...not much better, cosmeticaly it sucks, but at least I can read the full width of the screen now without content overlapping itself.

    Default Yuck

    Hate the new forum design. Why waste fully half the screen for a background image. This will be particularly bad for anyone with visual difficulties as it is harder to go with a large font.

    This reminds me of the old websites from 2000ish where someone discovered frames the first time and thought it was all two to have a multipart screen even though it damaged the customer experience.

    And making us choose a new forum name? That's just annoying.

    Why do we have to use the same account details for the forums as for the actual game?
    Did you just stop caring about account security?

    Do you realise that now it's no longer as practical to use a really high security password (one that you can't memorize, or even just one that is annoying to type on your phone)?

    Correct, that don't give a **** about it.

    It's not like they aren't aware of the issue either. Last year they switched LOTRO over to joint log in and they got massively hacked rather quickly.

    This "new forum" looks like all the free forums you can open in five seconds...

    No resizing with window size, clunky and annoying background window, And I won't even start on the 'cannot log in' - I had to use a secondary F2P account to write this post, my main account can't log in ... can't process bleh...

    Come on this kind of forum is good for rockhounds to talk about their finds, or for collectors of money coins to exchanges informations, but not for a game that is net based.

    Oh and I lost the post count and rep on this account to add insult to injury.

    It's cheaper this way I guess. But one would think that the new add space could cover that.

    Even just being able to use my old display name would be wonderful. Apparently, "perylousdemon" isn't allowed all of a sudden. Had to resort to my main character's name...

    I like it for the most part. There are a few color contrast things that are throwing me off though. Ick. But the whole site looks and feels more 'official' than before, which I think is good. Again, just not sure about some color choices. XD

    I was assuming as much, I figure they will go the way of "free" forums like The Escapist and quickly turn that side real estate into paid adds, which we will probably be able to pay a fee not to see. There just is no other reason to waste more than half the page (unless they are complete idiots when it comes to web design, and I'm sure that's not the case)

    Joy. So I have to rely on their less than stellar customer service if I want my old display name back. I think I'll just stick with this one, thanks...

    For myself - don't see any reason to either like the new forums or hate them. Just another forum.

    By the same token, I really don't see what was gained with the change.
    Doesn't seem like anything new was added that was better than what previously existed.
    What was the given reason for the change over? Guess I missed it.
    Add Shifters to playable races and I'll stop complaining. Probably.

    As others have said, there is too much wasted space just so we can see the pretty backgrounds someone made up.
