[Important] New Forums are coming

Greetings adventurers,

we are celebrating one year BDO in the west and we felt this is a good moment to improve a few aspects attached to the service. You might have already noticed the new game launcher but the one thing we want to talk about now, is the move of our community forums.

The beta version of the new forums is now accessible.

http://beta-forum.blackdesertonline.com/index.php

We use improved forum software for the new boards and this allows us to implement new and often requested features.

First and probably most important, game accounts and forum accounts are now linked.

We plan on implementing more exiting features, such as an advanced rank structure and the option to show off with aspects of your in-game character (for example titles) directly linked on the forum. But before we go all out, we want to be sure that you, the Community and we, the BDO Team are happy with the base functionality and equally important, that everything works as intended.

Please let us know your questions, tell us if you find a bug and share your suggestions and feedback!

 

Roadmap:

  • For a limited time, we will run the old and the new forums simultaneously.
    • There will be no scheduled wipe at the end of the beta phase but necessary changes and updates might affect posts made during this time.
  • As soon as we are confident, that the new forums can fully take over, we will disable the option to create new threads on the old forums.
    • You will be able to continue ongoing conversations but no new topics can be made.
  • Approximately 2 weeks later, all threads on the old forums will be closed.
    • All your posts will still be visible and accessible but the old forums are basically transformed into a read only archive.
    • There are no plans to remove the old forums in the foreseeable time.
    • Previous achievements such post count, likes etc. will stay visible on the old forums but will not be transferred.

The  BDO Team

Great!!!

I hope we finally get our beloved horse subforum! :)

A suggestion, maybe: could the size of the allowed avatars be higher? I cannot even use the same one I have here.

New launcher, new forums, support sometimes reacting after minutes to our tickets, there are many flaws but I can definitely see an improvement from Kakao as the whole.

Way too much white space on the right. Are there plans to add widgets? IE: latest post, latest thread??

 

Nice addition, although I do like our present theme.

Some decent moderation might be a good idea too if you guys are talking starting over fresh. Just saying...

Okay I hate to say it like this but, the new forum  SUCKS!

Please reconsider it because it looks vastly inferior to our current one.

Is there a staff tracker option or I will still have to click the staff members 1 by 1 to see whether they have said anything worth knowing?

Well this is pretty terrible. Why on Earth would you go backwards in functionality and visual stimulation in 2017?

That forum looks like something that should be associated with a Galactica game not Black Desert.

UX can change. Functionality is deeper seeded in most forum software.

IPS is rather... Closed off as far as customizable functionality.

Game and forum accounts are linked, but it asks me to register.

 

Why?

 

Not sure you understand what "linked" means.
