These new forums are a mess: Hard to look at, hard to read, full of bugs, formatting failures, etc. In fact, there's a whole list of issues here.
Personally, I think the biggest, saddest problem, are for owners of guides like this one. I have worked hard to design this guide, test features, keep it updated, produce the Power Calculator, etc.
It really bugs me that my work has been turned over to an "Archive Post" user account. That means that not only do I lose credit for a piece of work that's over two years old, I can no longer keep the OP updated.
I'm truly unhappy about this.
What's worse is that "thanks" to the cruddy new forums, posts have lost some of their formatting (mostly indentations), so the OP looks bad. :frown:
I wish Cryptic/PW to quickly get their schtick together, get the forums software updated, get rid of the bugs/broken bits, and either restore OP access to Guide Authors, or at least allow us to produce new posts to be stickied in-replacement of the old posts (though it will be unfortunate to lose all the History).
In the meantime, I do plan to keep the Calc updated. In the near future, I'll add the Reinforcement DOff Pack Cargo Ship (forget the actual name, atm) and post an updated Calc.
Thanks all for the years of support.
At Your Service,
Hello, I'm PatricianVetinari, using my alt-Silver account to access these new forums (as I'm not yet willing to PW link/convert my main/LTS account). To say I'm disappointed with this "conversion" event would be an understatement.
(Is there a way to make my text align next to the sig pic, instead of after/under it?)
As far as I know the Power Calc in the OP is still accurate for what's in it. I haven't really played STO in ... wow ... over six months. >sigh< I hadn't realized it'd been that long.
Anyway, yeah, the Calc still works, and I'll continue to host it indefinietly, but all the new ships added since mid-Season 5 (ie all the new C-Store adds, Fleet Ships, Lock Boxes fodder, etc) are not in there. Also, I don't know if there are new consoles or other gear (sets, etc) that have popped-up that may also be missing.
Will I make an updated Calc? Dunno. Perhaps if Cryptic ever gives me reason to play again... Less grind, more story... If you care to hear more on my thoughts, click my signature banner... >shrug<
Until then.... Live Long and Prosper!
