The newest computer can merely compound, at speed, the oldest problem in the relations between human beings, and in the end the communicator will be confronted with the old problem, of what to say and how to say it. - Edward R. Murrow (1964)
Ain't got enough /Props to pass out to everyone I agree with thru this thread.
Priorities for me:
Log In / Remember Me.
A big plus to being able to embed vids now, tho.
The new format drove me off. Off-Topic brought me back. For now.
They do read Human Interface Guidelines over there at Turbine, yes? Or are they simply furthering their quest to build a comprehensive set of Human Irritation Guidelines?
Cases in point in reality:
Game login combined with forum login = bad security
Remember me = good security
Person responsible for this load: Lets combine game and forum account and oh, lets get rid of remember me feature...
So the only possible conclusion is: someone at Turbine who has no qualifications is making decisions, and the people there who do have qualifications are not willing to tell that person the correct information.
This must be painful for the qualified lower ranking IT people there, as the know nothing shirt is probably FULL of stupid ideas and is probably a real chore to deal with.
Oh, and remember I got your back on haggle so if they need some fascina... ermm convincing, I can do ya a solid!
Given how long it seems it will take to address the multitude of issues, I personally think it would be better to have nothing at all than this. I am deeply disappointed that some of the great institutional knowledge has been lost. If you were a new player and were looking for build advice or Mr. Cow's excellent videos and came here there's very little that's worthwhile.
If you want to get the forums active promote them ingame. Or make a thread where you can talk to yourself and keep it active. I'm sure I'm not the only one who has voices that talk inside there head, just post up and respond to them and let them respond in your own little thread.
i don't frequent the forums because this is still not my original forum name, I cant read posts or log in on my Android phone and I cant stay logged in at all anyways. I jump on here once in a great while when im bored, but today is the first time in a week logging in. when these problems for me are fixed, than I might frequent more often.
Qhualor, the P2W ranter.
The forums are a pain, but I cannot be bothered to care.
I would much prefer Turbine to put all resources into U18 and the expansion over the boards.
Maybe with Jerry's help, we can get this to the web designers - so they can see what the community wants to see. At least now we know there's changes down the pipe to make this a better place. Sure some will say "they dont care." I know that's not true.
Finally this thread wasn't designed to vent, although a bit of venting is clearly in order due to the drastic change in design and security "features" (within the forum guidelines of course). This is more for describing why this site doesnt work, it's frustrations -- and most importantly how it can be improved. This way, before its too late, maybe we can get people back who've made this a hell of a great community in the last seven years.

Hmmm, this is not a bad list so far. I wonder how many of these great community ideas get implemented...
