    Now on to the good stuff!

    If there is a way to constructively tell us what you like, what could use improvements and what you would like to see incorporated into your forum experience, I would love for Syrus to use it to donk me over the head when he reads this :stretcher:

    My job is to communicate the community feedback :D

    I'll start. We need to leave this end-of-life software behind us and move to a modern forum software. This move should be accompanied by extensive testing to ensure that all of our legacies are maintained and to avoid another mass loss of data.

    Hmm. I would personally like to see a UO OT sub-forum readded into the UO forums section because I think a lot of UO players have been ignoring OT since the move.

    Oh, and this smiley: [​IMG]

    What if we added a link that looked like a subforum? It'd be organized as it used to be, under UO, but would redirect to general OT?

    I'm sure that would have the same effect. Do it!

    Ok, I'll have to ask Petra and Magdalene, as they have the final say on Stratics Forums decisions.

    Hate to see vB go, but if it is EOL... you gotta do what ya gotta do.

    With Stratics having moved to WP, would be great to see a forum integrated (natively or bridged) in WP with unified logins, profiles and social features & integration.

    By the way, to unlock the rumor mill, we're tentatively exploring XenForo. :)

    I.e., made by the people who made vB3.7 and 3.8, rather than vB4. You should be happy, vB fanboi. :p

    While factually correct, you're not smart enough to appreciate why.


    :p

    This please.

    With the WP platforms as the main hubs, the forums need to be easily accessible and look and feel like they are part of the hub.

    Just as long as it's not UBB or "MyWOWBB" I'll likely be content. If not happy.




    But just so we're clear, not happy.

    I'm happy when I crush my enemies and see them driven before me, and hear the lamentation of their women.

    Great comebacker! :thumbsup:

    Been about a month, how about a status update on changes and developments since then?
