    Looking into this. I *suspect* that it has to do with the migration, so reviewing these and a few other accounts to make sure they migrated properly. You SHOULD keep your post counts etc.

    Let's be honest, nobody really cares about the upgrade. But you know what? We took it, whatever. That said, turn loss of our original accounts is something not just a few, but pretty much all of us are going to be VERY angry about. So....
    *begins tapping his foot*
    Id like to hear an official announcement on the matter, if possible.

    Also lost. I wonder if it's related to the fact that I was forced to take a new screen name - when I logged in with my account ID, I was prompted to enter a screen name. I wasn't able to choose my prior account screen name, I was told it "wasn't allowed" which is about the least useful error message possible there.

    I was also told I wasn't allowed, which is pretty silly. If anyone should be...

    The reason for that is because those names already exist. They're just not linked to your accounts.

    If someone could help me get back the normal 'doomboy' I'd be most grateful.

    I'd rather just have the old forums back.

    This place is a train wreck.

    I can completely understand why this was untenable. Once you have enough HTML spaghetti to gag a goat, it becomes unmaintainable - and I hope nobody is kidding themselves about this game not being between the "maintenance" and "obsolescence" phases of Product Life Cycle? I'm amazed that Turbine can still make enough money to have people working on it.

    Undeniably. However, I'm of the group that isn't blaming technicians, but their management. You don't achieve a cluster-fark of this magnitude without some seriously poor planning. Old bookmarked links not working is understandable, search engine links not working is unprofitable, but seeming to have blown away user accounts, posting borked links on the core pages, and requiring both fresh and constant new logons approaches unforgivable.

    One thread complaining about the complainers was closed as I was posting a counter-counter-complaint in it. Whining about the ribbon is stupid, sure, but it's due to the additive irritation caused by Turbine's history.

    To top it all off, my logon was dropped in the time it took me to write this.

    But what do I know, I've only got a join date of April 2013...

    While I completely agree there is a train wreck here, the old forums had to go. It was a dated version of vbulletin that had been torn apart and put back together by countless people who now longer work at Turbine. A fresh start was a good idea.

    Execution however...yuck.
