"Oh hey guys, lets just add new forums to EVE and call it an expansion. Since we messed up the spaceship part of EVE. We will just keep throwing 1/2 finished products at them and then re-release them at a later date to make it look like we actually care."

After extensive testing and the addition of many new features we are pleased to bring them back.

Thank you for testing the log in feature! We are looking into why it is timing out now.

The login timeout error should now be fixed, we apologize for the delay.

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.

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.


Originally by: CCP Guard
It's getting late in the workday over here and we have decided to postpone the live deployment until tomorrow morning.


Yup, jsut like the patch testing, I can see already how well this is going to go. Rolling Eyes

Pro-tip CCP: fire your testers, they do nothing it seems.

How did you end up with so many idiots working for your company? Most people make sure something works *before* they announce a date to turn it on.

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.




Sticking with this theme, here is how I imagine the moments before the deployment..

You gotta laugh don't you, its a failcascade and everybody is invited to watch it happen. It would even be funny, hell it is funny. Months of testing and the forums haven't even been online on the backend.

Well actually the pirate smiley is all wrong and the ones that are meant to be animated are not. It's all very complicated and due for release later in 2020.

Good idea really, and fire their focus groups while they are at it.

Because when creating pirate smiley at CCP you need 3 art-development teams. And they will put this in the end of the queue because rewriting 8 pixels in 6 months (iirc from first feedback on old new forums) is impossible and need millions of bucks in budget.
