Who will get the last post in on these forms just before they are shut down and archived?

Just curious if anyone was going to try. Big smile

From what I have seen, the combined activity of the two forums is a tiny fraction of what it was, say, 4 years ago.
That can be directly traced back to the decline of the player base, coupled with the zeal of "moderation" that the ISD's have exhibited.

Not to mention the fact that Eve Dev's also abandoned these forums to post on Reddit.

Ugh

Why new forums when EVE already dies? Isn't this a gigantic waste of time? P

New forums are cheaper for CCP to operate.

"Cheaper". They are operated/hosted on Discourses servers, meaning that is discourse goes down it could potentially take down the forums as well.

A prophet declaring the end of times.

"I told you so! I told you so!", the prophet will yell in a straightjacket while being dragged to the soylent factory of Reddit, or possibly the new forums, whichever is worse.

and these forums are operated/hosted on the tranquility servers. meaning that if eve goes down, the forums (y'know the place you would generally go to find out if the servers are down etc) have a very high likely hood of going down as well. whats your point?

Almost certainly go down. Not to mention these are tied into Eve Gate as well, so who knows what would happen if Eve Gate was to die. No forums at all, probably best CCP work on a new forum solution, even if they still have work to do on it.

Hopefully one of the good things to come out of the new "forum" will be that the Dev's post stuff there FIRST, rather than on reddit or slack or wherever they seem to post the good stuff.

Info about the development of Eve Online should be post on the damn Eve Online forum!

Yeah, I agree. Dev's should post all Eve related topics first on the Official Eve Online Forums.

Only time will tell if they do that on the new forums..

I remember a time a few years back that CCP placed an embargo on the media during a gaming show that they attended so that we fans at the London meet up could hear about it before they placed it all over the net.

Such times like that probably wont be seen again.
