so.... wheres the new forums?

Maybe https://forums.eveonline.com/ (not working currently) ?

CCP hasn't published URL for new forums yet, but most likely Forums-button at https://gate.eveonline.com/ will point there when new forums are published.


The new forums will be switched on any minute now. We're just running sanity checks on a few final things before we let you guys in to post about kittens and marshmallows.


That "any minute" is an hour now. Bravo.

I am really wanting these to go up. I reactivated my account AFTER the new test forums went up, and I can't get in. I'm to lazy to make a petition, and I'm not sure they would do anything anyway.

Sigh.

Update:

I just got back from the deployment zone. The team is doing some final network configurations. At this time we can't nail down a precise ETA, but we are still aiming to deploy today. We will bring you regular updates and inform you if there is any change to our plans.

Thank you!

Certainly, the new forum are certainly ready to be deployed! They don't have any security breach and they certainly don't have any bugs in them! Right?

Well, seems like at least EVE Gate is updated already - I see the notification icon as well as new settings (Or they've been there before? Don't think so).

Update:

It's getting late in the workday over here and we have decided to postpone the live deployment until tomorrow morning. The reason is twofold.

First the deployment was delayed a little due to a problem with a load-balancer. Not a showstopper by any means but rather just something that stalled us for a couple of hours. Following that, we ran into another snag which was that all the bans we've issued through the eons had not properly ported over to the new forums. And since we didn't want to be this to happen, we decided to use the remaining time today to sort that out, and deploy early tomorrow when we have all hands on deck once again.

TL;DR - everything is ready for deployment tomorrow morning.

Thank you all for your patience, and our apologies for the extra delay.

What was it they said for WiS year after year? "next year"
heres to hoping that they take enough time that they dismiss this fool's errand.

CCP TL;DR

Once again we managed to completely screw the pooch by richarding around with a ready made forum package to make it unusable and ugly

WTH? one of the short forms of Richard is censored?

meh **** Cheney :)

Edit, forgot there was more than one short form of Richard

You know, Guard. This just indicates there's so much wrong at CCP. I realize that one day off from your estimated deployment in the scheme of things isn't an issue, IMO. However, the fact that the new forums were due months ago, were deployed, failed miserably, and now the new new iteration missed it's deadline must be very much demoralizing for you guys. I know it is to us. Fess up, CCP has no commitment to any thing. The repeated failures of late are mounting up overwhelming any respect that your customers had for you.

All things considering, it's better to delay a release than to put out a half-finished product. In this case, CCP did the right thing by delaying the forum launch by a day in order to make sure that everything goes smoothly and to make sure that everyone is available to deal with potential problems. It takes a certain amount of courage to push back a release date.

Am not a terribly big fan of the new forums, since near as can tell they're still missing some of the core features that have been a staple of online forums for years. On the other hand, I look forward to those modern features which the new forums do incorporate.

I think the problem is that it's a day this time, but really the forums were supposed to be ready months ago, and they still appear to be half finished.

They asked for player feedback on them, and received a pretty universally negative review between bloat, layout, and lack of function. Like you said, they're still missing core features that are found in every forum on the internet.

I'd have no problem with months of delay if it were because CCP wanted to make a really complete forum solution and the delays were caused by taking into account player feedback, but I've seen only very minor changes put in place.
