Beta New Forum - the time has come!

The beta forum had a huge overhaul recently, the last time I was on it looked very different.

It looked just as ugly, just in different way... :D

And no post migration... Hell i wonder how much useful info will be lost...

No info will be lost. The old forums content will continue to be viewed. And there's now a lot more leeway in organization. For example, instead of one Horse Breeding Mega Thread, there's an entire subforum dedicated to it, and many horse breeders have already compiled and populated it with FAQ's, Guides, etc... and it wasn't difficult in the least (in fact it was more beneficial). Other subforums have already received the same treatment as well. 

It's not like suddenly all previous data has been erased.

At least the old forums were functionally ugly.

These new ones where, at default zoom, you can see at most 2 posts per screen cause of a huge black bar at the top and way too big margins? Not so much.

And on the black bars, the only one that's remotely useful when you scroll down is the one that disappears while the rest stay. I need someone to help me understand this concept, cause I might just be too old to get it :/

I wish when making multiple posts from an android it didn't randomly place my responses inside of other people's messages.

Don't forget about the weak SSL cert. I know these forums don't have any security. I still makes me laugh cry seeing the lack of security for this game.

yeah....it's worrying because our game accounts are linked with the forums

if we only had the KR pin option it would be slightly better

I suggest you review your cipher list on your new forum cert, its open to all kinds of attacks. Cert is shared with other sites using SNI, you may want to move it to its own VIP which will allow you to tighten the cipher list.

https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/analyze.html?d=community.blackdesertonline.com

This one is free. Contact me if you wish further help on how to properly secure a Certificate.

I am going to keep posting this until its acknowledged.

It's kind of you.

Seeing how the whole thing is designed vertically, I would say they actually only test it on smartphones. It's barely readable on a normal screen, except if you like scrolling for every post in a thread.

Edit: Oh well, the only usefull part of the header (the forum tree) is the only hidden part once you scroll. Just, why?

The new forum is absolutely atrocious to access on a phone unfortunately. The top menu sticks to the top and blocks out a lot of the thread, leaving only a couple of very short posts visible

New forum is atrocious.

It looks like its meant to be used on a phone, ie; something that's in portrait mode, not something accessed on a monitor.

Remove the persistent gigantic header, increase the width, remove the gigantic spacing between things.. it all just looks awful.

There is no reason to be spending time and resources on making a new forum, unless your goal is to purge the old ones and hide all the negative criticism blasted at the game and the publisher for over a year now.. especially when said new forum is WORSE than the old one.

This makes no sense.

Since they haven't added a second layer of security to my game account; there will be zero chances that ill be joining the new forums. Not sure who else feels the same way but good luck to you all

Just stop. You do not have the resources to replace your forum without it being a disaster.

There is no need. You are only introducing risk.

It will look bad for whoever owns this project, yes. Still, do what's best for your company and customers and cut your losses on the new forum.

I take it back (?) the new forums are BAD, from the layout to the organizing of new threads

you shouldn't mix different servers into one new post preview column or we won't know which one it is

even less inclined to register
