Will the in-game mail be available on the website as it was pre-PWE? I really miss that.

And, will the signature/edit avatar/edit title all be in one spot (user CP, for example)?

And gosh darn it, sorry to put this here, but I've tried to change my title to Starfleet Veteran several times and it won't do it! I even changed my logo to one of the defaults to change the title and then changed back, and still it won't stay. I've been subscribed well over 1000 days now, it just doesn't make sense to me that it should be this hard.

So noted, Chicken Little.

It's a software upgrade, not migrating to a whole new forum software on a completely new PWE database. We're not changing databases (again), so Forum Handle Fiasco Mk 2 will not occur.

Bring on the Report feature; PMing individual mods with a link whenever someone posts porn on the forums is awfully tedius.

I don't care how long you've been playing. I only care about how you play.
And remember to follow the rules.

I would rather have the ability to select a non-unique "Display Name" in place of my @handle.

Hopefully this time around, things go smoothly, and we don't end up getting tossed under the bus... again.

My finger is hovering over the update key, hold onto your butts?
No rough idea at this time. Only 2 games have been switched over so far (Ether Saga and Neverwinter), and I'd like us to go last so we have time plenty of time for you guys to check out other upgrades and provide feedback for ours.

2) Possibly, but when I look at it, it's the same width of the actual forum. Are you seeing something different?

3) I'll pass this along to the Web Team to look into

4) I'll pass this along to the Web Team to look into

5) It will be reviewed, but the permissions will most likely stay as they are for most things. NWs may still be under review. We'd would like to allow for as much customization and personalization as possible, though.

6) They won't be linked in-game at the time of launch, no. That's something we'd like to do again in the future but there's no ETA.

Mr. Turtle fixed the avatar thing Thanks for pointing it out!

One question: when you say we'll be able to edit "all our old posts", does that include the ones that currently show up as "Archived Post"?
If you can not currently edit a post in question, you will still not have the option post upgrade.

I do remember your post and there were some great ideas in there. I'll be looking into what forums can be merged during the upgrade. I'm still not sure which will be, though. Although many devs don't post in those forums, they are still being watched and read by the appropriate team (DOFFs by those who work on the system, Bugs by QA, etc.)

The UserCP should be revamped. Check it out on Neverwinter and leave your feedback here.

Try setting your title from a different browser -- some browsers are causing title changes to not stick for some strange reason. The Web Team is investigating.

I'm so glad that I have your assurance on that .
BTW in case you missed it , the OP included a list of "possible bad things that might happen" -- some of which pissed off long time forum users when the PW forum switch occurred .

Just because the Forum Handle Fiasco was not listed , does not mean "all is/will be well" .
STO will be out of Beta in another 2-4 years ???
... you know after another 3 story arc remasters, crafting revamp, skills revamp, PVP upgrade ...
*note : the 2-4 year guesstimate came out of comparing Cryptic's Dev speed and that of a snail . Sadly the snail won .

Brandon, do you know if this update will make the forum more smartphone friendly? I often want to check the forums on my iPhone, but it's almost impossible to log in, as the login box jumps about the screen whenever you try and select the username field.

Possibly -- you can check out the Neverwinter forums now to see what it will be like. The login box may still jump as the site and forums do not officially support mobile browsers. To get around that, hit the "Login" link that normally displays where it says (when logged out -- it will take you to a static log-in page):

Thanks for the reply Brandon! It wouldn't be so bad if the forum didn't keep logging me out all the time. XD

I don't like how it handles the Dev Tracker.

I like the way STO does it by listing the Thread name and a blurb (rather than the whole post). This lets me skim the Dev Tracker really easily so I can find the posts that I would be inclined to read (ie, I can avoid non-game-related banter, community events that I care for, but am able to quickly pick out Patch Notes, Mechanics discussions, Dev Blogs, etc).
