On Tuesday, February 6th, 2007 we will be changing forum software. Transitioning to a new forum system gives us the opportunity to offer you new features and allows us to update and upgrade the system as often as needed.

During the transition period, there will be no official forums available for 48 hours.  We will, however, have a single temporary bulletin board available to you during this time. 

If any of this information changes, we will post updates in our announcement forum – so be on the lookout! 

In the meantime, we've put together a list below of important information about the message board migration.  PLEASE make sure to read it carefully and let us know if you have any additional questions.

THE GENERAL FACTS

  • The forum change will begin on Tuesday, February 6th, 2007.
  • There will be no official forums available at that time.
  • A temporary forum will be available for you to use while the change occurs.

FORUMS BEING MOVED

During the migration, we are taking advantage of the opportunity to scale-down the size of the database so we can better consolidate and keep track of EQII-related conversations.  Further details about which discussions will be carried over will be shared shortly.

HOW DOES THIS AFFECT YOUR STUFF?

  • Your Forum Handles and post counts will be transferred from the existing forums to the new forums.
  • Your bookmarks, subscriptions, friend lists etc. will NOT transfer over to the new forums. If you currently use any of these features, you will want to make note of them before the transition so that you can set them up once again after the transition occurs.

IMPORTANT THINGS TO REMEMBER…

  • If there are any specific posts that you would like to keep , save them!!!  This includes player guides or other lists you may have created to share with the rest of the community. Some examples might be your:
    • Guides
    • FAQ's
    • Stories
  • Posts from the temporary bulletin board will not be moved to the new forums.  If you post anything you want to keep, remember to save it and repost it once the new boards are up.
  • Once the new forums are live we will provide information on its new features!
UPDATE: This transition has been moved to Feb. 6th so it does not interfere with patching.

I don't know if it's just me, but the default text size and color make the forums very difficult to read. Did you mean to lock this thread?

Is it possible to post something that says the Sign In/Change User is where you sign in to the forums as well, it just took me an hour to figure out how to post on these boards.

 So I experimented with the new "persona" feature and now I cant post, or add to the postcount of, my regular forum name for 24 hours?? Why not? And where was the warning for that? If you're going to let people post under different names - a scary thought imho. Then why lock us out of the other names for 24 hours?

Has anyone else realized that we're posting in the Announcements forum in a Dev thread?

Hugely disappointed. Don't see this as an improvement, in fact it's a step backward in the user area. Might be better from a software standpoint but users don't see that. We see the UI and this one is in need of a lot of work. No edit button for posts Signature window in profile way too small No guild or server information listed if you post under your forum account handle Ability to post under every one of your character's names. Why??

I didn't even have to sign in, apparently it still remembered me from my login on the temp forum yesterday... or, the fact that I mistakenly went to the EQ forum instead of EQ2 and signed in there might have something to do with it... Anyway, these boards still have quite a way to go in the features department...
