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.)

These forums will be archived cause they couldn't find a way to transfer posts. I.e., read only mode.

I say this as kindly as possible because I think it's fantastic that you're making efforts to improve....but I sure hope the design and security features on that forum change...at first glance it looks cheap and sort of...well...poorly laid out compared to this forum. My suggestions. Ditch the whitespace on either side, go full-screen as it's much more aesthetically pleasing for most people. Maybe tame down that glaring red, too, lol.  It reminds me a bit of the old free forums I used to run a few years back whereas the current is much nicer *ducks* Don't kill me...

How about you fix your servers first? My guild been locked out of node wars for an entire week, support did absolutely nothing. Now a week later, servers crash. Dead game? Do something to fix your horrible servers, or I'm gone.

Here, I will be as constructive and kind as possible. I don't know what's the fuss about new forum design. I like it! It looks sleek and modern. I love this game, but the servers... fix them, please! I'm not gonna rant at your cash shop and poor vanilla armor design variety (bought 4 outfits for my sorc, so it's not about money). I expect little from a development and localization teams, and frankly, it's your own fault! The only thing I will ask is the server stability. Please, make it your priority and fix it! There's no use of the game which you can't play!

Sorry, but this new forum doesn't look good, if you plan to implement advertisement on the right white space, I'm very disapointed. And if not It just looks kinda "ugly". The current forum looks good and fits the game design, why change?

Bcs it looks like some elementary-schooler first website and you cant tell it apart from any other cheap generic forum on the internet until you find that small logo in a corner... Its so plain and boring i feel bad for person designing it... This ttype was "modern" 5 years ago and even then it looked bad...

I like it, the design is fine, but, i think its a bit too wide.

please, make it a bit less wide.

also a better & higher resolution image for background would be nice. if possible.

I was going to say HTTPS needs to be first and foremost, but seems like you guys have fixed that (thank goodness...). The site functionality is pretty good overall and the site is at the very least speedy. I can stand an ugly site as long as it's fast. I'd have to say tho to improve on the design there's a lot of just standard boxes with no real goal for the design. There's just boxes of different color and nothing too interesting to look at that sets the forums apart from any other rando forum you can find online. Just seems a bit lazy and clinical looking to me. BDO is a really beautiful game and it'd be nice to see some effort put into the forum design and borrow some of the game's vibrancy.

The functionality is there! We just need something a bit more interesting to look at is all.

Also, 50kb icons I hope are just a thing bc it's in beta..? 50kb is not much room to work with in this day and age.

Will .gif pictures actually animate or will they be rendered as still pictures in the new forum?

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.)

I read a succinct question here. If I understood you correctly, you'd like for the sumtotal of the player base views about Pearl Abyss and/or Daum Games->Kakao Games, to be clearly visible and cumulative as time goes by. Your question/caution/view is that with the new forum being introduced and the old one being "archive only" for who knows how long, the sumtotal player base disposition would be...unclear, not as accurate a representation as it could be, if the forums merge or the old forum knowledge is assimilated to the new one.

Is this accurate?

If I may throw in another suggestion...

How about you guys hold a forum design contest? Winner gets 10000 pearls!

only 10000? Someone with that level of web design knowledge is worth more than that per hour 

I think I'll keep chilling here till the new forum is finished. 

even then I think most people will prefer to stay here

Serious question.

Did PA and KAKA do their hiring from Half Way houses? Is this some government program for mentally challenged people to get work?

Aside to FINALY have the forum - in game account linked, so FINALY be able to run thustable poll ( that was so far the main issue with this forum there is many month ago ) the new forum have nothing particular at the first look. But that's fine.

 

Lets hope now kakao will use the in game - forum link to run poll and so, otherwise i dont see how that new forum will have any particular use compare to what we already have here.

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'd not expect to hear that game's name ever again. Though not a fan of the new forums look at all, can't find anything decently lol.
