Most importantly, as many people in this thread said, security on the new forum is a must, especially when our game and forum accounts will be linked.

It is nice that it has been considered that the accounts should be linked.

Lastly I want to suggest having a dark theme, dark greyed/light blacked background and such, more easily readable and comfortable for the eyes of some of us. :)

Hm, well that had to happen and guess with the 1 year of BDO, then it's the right time now. 

 

I had to do this on our fine new forum....

There was one before yours too (at least), I guess the new forums had its first warning and you're aiming for the second ;)

I don't like the new forums, looks like a 2005ish forum where you can't post pictures heavier than 3MB.

And if it does not support gifs we'll be missing the good'ol salt we can find on PvP topics.

Get back the old scaling of the forums, neither of your 2 forums support 4k and its 2017. Maybe you should hire some professionals?

 

Check the attached files if you dont understand what i mean.

Edit: Before anyone says "well you can change size of the page yourself" yes i can but i dont want things huge, im not blind.

It's even pretty bad on 1440p, but eh, a lot of the web is bad once you go past 1080 :/

Interesting, using PHP. How about NodeJS?

You're my new favorite friend lolololol

nodebb is awesome.

Prebuilt themes are nice, personally i use css/source injectors on my favorite sites.

I hope they change the design, because right now it looks like your typical run-of-the-mill online forum. I actually like the current design, because it's somewhat unique. I just miss a better sub-forum overview and a night mode/modifiable color scheme.

Oh and dont forget about HTTPS (and HTTP/2 for good speed), you really dont want to be the target of a shitstorm when the forum gets hacked.

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

 

 

Important question: What about the stickies from the current forum? Will they transfer into the new forums or not? (the Megathread for horses for example)

Same. Especially considering the security still needs to be improved.

As long as the new forum does not have any sort of secure login like https or ssl or such, no one should even consider logging in on that forum, especially since Game account and forum account will be linked.

I already had to shrink my profile picture down to 50 KB to be accepted. So I bet there is a small cap on pictures.

Feedback on new forums:

  • The overall appearance of the beta is not as nice as our current ones.  It isn't terrible but I think this could be improved upon.  Looks do matter!  I think part of the issue is too much white overall.  Take a look at current forum where anything in the user panel on the left is in grey, but the page background is white.
  • I think next post in each thread should alternate background colors for better readability.
  • Staff members should have an icon next to all their posts that allow us to jump to next staff post.
    • Example:
    • JumpToNextStaffPost.thumb.png.17153c7f57
  • Outside of a thread, on the topics section, if any posts contain a staff member post, it should have an icon next to it, allowing us to click on it, and it will jump to the first post made by a staff member in that thread.
    • Example:
    • JumpToFirstStaffPost.thumb.png.6bc33e48f
  • The forums don't scale for large monitors/high resolutions.  The screen to create a post is TINY.  No reason for this:
    19a7d1b242f940978cb3d269824b8c72.png
  • Cannot add a tag from our threads as a prefix in our titles.  That was perfect for technical support, or guild recruitment.
  • I recommend creating at least 2 themes and allowing us to pick from them: a dark based one and a light based one.  Some have difficulty with white backgrounds, others with dark, so having 2 that people can pick from to be easier on their eyes is something most sites should honestly do.

Will all the information on the old forum be erased to discard any negative opinions towards the game publishers and developers shared by those in the community otherwise a clean slate? ( I may have stated this wrong but someone might understand what I'm trying to say.)
