Is this some elaborate plan to get rid of the last people on the forums?

Basically yes.
Look what I found on discourse forums, in the thread about why people are not using it:
Quote:
This is the key, when I transitioned my phpBB forum many of my users hated Discourse - because it was unfamiliar. Some grew to love it, a lot did not bother trying and left.

Quote:

There is tremendous technical and sociological friction to change in any established community.

We believe Discourse works best for new discussion communities. It is definitely possible to convert existing communities to Discourse, but there needs to be broad dissatisfaction with the status quo and strong support for change from the community leaders.

No refunds for those with fewer than 1000 likes. All players with more than 1000 likes will get converted to newplex

I dont see any option to show likes around poster avatar or anywhere else than beside the post. There will be no likes to show out. Everyone's description will be like your typical chinese uniform around the Mao rules if they will not modify anything, and they did nothing for valkyrie forums, they are not caring anymore about us...

It will be a shadow of these forums!!!!!

Sure they are. People hated the idea of likes when this forum was first started. CCP is just finally giving y'all what you declared you wanted.

I thought you all would be thrilled about this.

In the old forum I'd get a dozen posts quoting mine with the word "This" as the entire post. One of the reasons CCP went to the likes mechanic, I'm guessing.

In any case, my ego will be fed no matter how they end up going with this.

What would you guys like to see in a new forum? I'm pretty jaded and joked about how they announce/tip their hand to a new forum and that just means we're all gonna be redditors Smile Personally, I think it would be cool if there was a creative way to integrate our Twitters but where do you stop with the social media and the crashing down of the real life barrier -? Might as well toss our facebooks and instagrams and now snapchat's getting a big push from the devs.

I'm gonna miss this forum but interested and looking forward to what they have rolling out Smile

I just checked them out, Valkyrie forums are ugly, flat design, and very strange fonts, i do not like it.

It will be default Discourse with a white on grey or black theme. Everything else similar to current forums would retain some long established part of community. I ddont think that is why they want to roll out new environment.

They want to WRECK this forum community and establish a new, sheep people forumbase. Where individuality and freedom of expression will be crushed by lack of likes counter, alliance or corp info, small, peephole sized avatars and no signatures.

Discourse, where your forum main will be forever your forum alt.

Curent forums will be left where evelopedia is now.

Yeah, that's a sad sorry state of affairs for a Forum that's suppose to be beneficial and enlightening for the game community. In all my years of posting in these forums, I've never once seen anyone complain about this forums type of format. These forums are extremely user friendly and easy to navigate.

So let me get this straight.

First the Jukebox was too much of a strain to maintain, is removed and replaced with random music list which is called an upgrade.

Next the Evelopedia was too much of a strain to maintain, is removed and replaced with referrals to 3rd party wiki's in similar state which is called an upgrade.

Then the IGB was too much of a strain to maintain, is removed and replaced with referrals to 3rd party overlays that require more data to be downloaded which is called an upgrade.

Now these forums are too much of a strain to maintain, are being removed and replaced with a 3rd party forum media requiring even more data to be downloaded which is being called an upgrade.

Can definitely see a pattern. I remember when players use to say that GoonSwarm would kill the game. In reality it's CCP that is killing this game, with each little so called upgrade they implement.

Yes indeed, tis a sad sorry state of affairs.

These two do not go together. Which is it?


It's both. Valkyrie's forums are the template for what they'll be doing, with some additional features and things in it.


Yeah, that's my point. One ISD says the forums look good, the other says the Valkyrie forums are used as a template.

News flash; the Valkyrie forums are a complete abomination is usability and design. They are by far the ugliest forums I have ever seen.

Xenforo is the top forum software being used today. I wished they used Xenforo, maybe then we'd get something with the features of a modern forum AND something that looks good. Instead we now have neither.

Forum upgrade is a great idea.

I love the forums. I have to say though that the Valkyrie forums really are ugly though, sorry. If we're stuck with that then I hope significant liberty is taken with the layout and design before it's adapted to the EVE forums. Straight
