game accounts and forum accounts are now linked 

and new forum is still not https secured, and game accounts still doesn't have any protection. Don't think I'll be trying it out sorry. 

fixed for you, hoping they'll acknowledge the elephant in the room someday

This is the reason for which I have a separate forum only account, shame on their tech guys for overlooking such glaring issue

I'm aware War. 

Firefall Forums pulled it off quite nicely. A good example of the front-end customization that XF provides in my opinion, though not the full extent. If someone was a masochist and wanted to spend enough time, they could make XF look exactly like IPB.

He's right, you know.

I agree with the fact that the forum is not as pretty as the current one. Will the design improve in the future?

In aesthetic terms, new forum definitely has a superior look. Too bad I can't say the same about BDO's CHATBOX.

I have to agree with the people above me that I dont find the change to be an improvement.

Its a very outdated setup and overall I dont see why we would change our current ones other than having them linked with IG profiles.

Forums dont have to look pretty, as long as its completely functional, and user friendly. I think it looks alright so far.

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.

What is gonna happen with actual big topics? like these:

A few has brought this up as well, but this actually makes me slightly nervous. Security is pretty weak with the NA/EU version of the game and at least with the old forums if that account was compromised (or if game account was) they wouldnt have access to the other. So it seems with this new model there will be linking of the two but no new increase of security?

if we are wrong would a CM mind to comment on this aspect?  Also, if this is to be the case with a new forum but still the same level of security; will player accounts already be setup with the new forums or can we just not opt to setup an account on the forums?

Thanks in adance

You should look into a way to merge accounts / threads / posts from the old forums into the new forums, shouldn't you? The guides and all that ...

The "drop down" arrow for opening subforums is completely retarded.  There should be a small indented list with the subforums that is always visible underneath.  I don't know if this was done for mobile friendliness or not, but it just sucks.

Still needs to have a CM/GM/Dev tracker.  Which it does not appear to.

There's no place on the new forums where to report text translation issues or text cutting issues or just bugs in general.

@@CM_Praballo The security of our data/passwords should be priority 1 wuth these new forums. I cannot understand why in 2017 you would not have HTTPS for the forums.
