With less than a week left in August is there going to be an update on when the new forums are coming out?

Things probably got delayed because they were too busy making more NEX items.

Incarca 1.1 is supposedly coming next tuesday, so I'd guess they implement new forums then also - if they are ready to implemented by then...

edit: I also read somewhere that customisable API keys are also coming next tuesday... Waiting to see which promises are fulfilled this time ...

Will Incarna 1.1 just be an incarna patch to fix bugs? Or will it implement new things too?

Didn't you notice?
Incarna 1.1 patch already there. It's NoX store new "fashion" clothes.

The more i look at it and think about it the more i think CCP guys exploding out there laughing at these who buy this stuff and more and more i conclude that NoX thing got released for internal CCP lolz.

I mean, c'mon they can't be serious with that stuff. It's lolz.
CCP you had a good laugh, time to close NoX.

Oh yes, Incarna patch. Take a look at NoX store. That's the patch.

No idea, I haven't seen much change in the forums after the tests though. The annoying pop up when scrolling the subject is still there, its still unwieldy in some way I can't put my finger on.

CCP Zymphoney said the patch notes for the next update looked exciting but from what we have been told only some CQ changes will be made on performance. All the rest is for "real soon, but not soonTM". Whatever that means.

Well, where's the incentive in finishing on time when any delay you can talk your subscribers into accepting will earn you monthly subscription money?

You could for instance try talking your subscribers into accepting delays by promising exciting new things in upcoming blogs that, in turn, can be further postponed and don't actually have to be exciting, and can be promised to iterated on?

Patch notes have not been released yet but I'm guessing there will be no game play content. Maybe every player will get an Eve mail from the CEO of the NEX store.

This man is sooooo right!

CCP: Stop making barbie stuff, and start REPAIRING your buggy game. Possibly before adding new stuff, which will make the game even more buggy. And preferably start NOW!

OP: Sorry for derailing your thread.

keep your new forums in the trash, the old forums has always served us well.

The brief time that the 'new' forums were live, it was obvious that it was worse that what we have now.

Also, i do not like the forced use of EVE Gate.

I'm not a fan of the new forums, not because I don't like change or because this current one is so brilliant. It's more that the new forum looks like garbage when compared to UBB or the likes.

It looks crap, spacing is all wrong, avatars too big and many many more issues. Besides, I don't use a mobile to read the forums I use a PC. If they optimise it for mobiles that's the same as optimising a game for consoles and then porting to PC; useless crap.

Since this got dropped down to the third page, I'm bumping it in hope of more exposure and hopefully a blue post.

I ensure you that the new forum will be as much fail than the last time they tried releasing it.

**** the new forums. Why do we need new forums? You know, if CCP re-assigned the resources working on "new forums" back to the core game, we would probably have 4 times the staff working on content and fixes as we do today.

Wow first time Chribba has made a comment on one of my topics (not that I make that many). Anyways I personally like the forums we have now. It's kind of a if it ain't broke don't fix it types of thing for me. Obviously it worked well enough these past years. I just wanted to make this topic in the (slim) hope that a Dev or something like one would make a comment either stating when the old new forums are coming or indefinitely not coming. Anyways I'll keep this going till I get something from CCP or my Aikido class finally gets me too sore to sit in my computer chair.

The new forum software should be quietly deleted and nobody should ever talk about it again.

Considering the total mess they have done so far with the new forums I would really prefer if they never ever touched the EVE code.

These old forums are 50% good, 30% meh, 15% bad, and 5% annoying.
The "new" forums are 40% good, 10% meh, 30% bad, and 20% horrible abomination.

If only they could take the small good parts of the new ones that are not the same as the good parts of this one and merge them into the old ones, that would be peachy.

What small good parts ?
Well, the "not constantly getting logged out" bit, the larger max post count, the edit history, the (alleged) ability to block people and even the closer eve-gate integration... and... umm... and... nope, that's about it.
