Default Forum Upgrade - December 7

Hello all,

We are scheduled to upgrade the forums on Thursday, December 7. We will be moving onto the system both Aion and Blade & Soul forums use.

We are not migrating any data from these forums. You will need to re-register once the new forum launches. The current forums will be set as read only for a limited time for you to collect any thread and posts you want to save.

The new forums is still in active development and testing so there is a chance the date might slip, but we are holding firm for Thursday.

Hope re-register doesn't mean people can hijack existing names and what will happen to our post count & original join date ?

if that all is reset there's nothing left that will show the difference between a veteran player and someone who started yesterday..

it may sound like a small thing but why mess with it if that can be avoided ?

It doesn't really matter at this point anyway.
Start fresh and make sure you're fast to register Draecke, because someone else will xD

dunno if it's worth doing so though, quality & fun of being active here ain't what it used to be and trolling/dealing with such isn't my cup of tea either..

I'll leave it to those who can't help themselves to make it look like there's any meaningful posting going on here

They took 3 months + to translate a poor quality "preliminary" patch note ... So guess if they can do a migration script between 2 databases ? naaaaaaaa ! it's too hard !

Fortunately it's my work, may i give you some help ?

more games together on one forum - less expenses.
and also less players, but...who cares!

The patch notes are PRELIMINARY patch notes. If you think the patch notes aren't formatted well, think about how we received them and how we had to make it in a readable format. It isn't perfect. We know.

I know it's crazy to think we have more than 1 person working on Lineage II, but we teams in the organization that do more specialized work than work on patch notes.

We chose not to migrate so everybody can have a fresh start on the new forums.

You can visit Blade & Soul and Aion to see how the new forums look. The registration date won't be as public like you can see here.

We are upgrading because we want all the forums to be on the same solution. This old version is limited and no longer supported by vBulletin. Also, the new forums will be on a new server so we should not see strange login and logout issues like we have experienced and some currently still experience.

If somebody takes your forum name, it can easily rectified.

That doesn't make sense. Upgrading is an expense. The games are not on the same forums, they are on the same forum solution. You can visit Aion and Blade & Soul to see how they look.

No avatars, no signatures, but you can post images. The ultimate goal is to get an avatar gallery and other features, and getting all the games onto same forum platform is the first move.

Users apreciate when they are not treated as fools. NC Soft Team chose to migrat to new forum to cut costs and as part of that migrating the database would create costs. So, lets not call **** a chocolate chip cookie and present reality as it is.

Well...
The more important question is:
Why they are migrating forum datebase, but they not "migrating" playersbase from old update to new one !

It's quite funny answer but ok... Just please don't delete this one and keep it read only forever. Sometimes I read topics from old servers... I miss that times.
