  • Thank goodness it's back...I mean how in the world could I figure things out without this place? It has been interesting not being able to check on things here...

  • Wow, this is awkward and clunky.

    I missed you guys, but I feel like I'm in 1997 again. What's with this tiny reply box? I'll have you know I'm very claustrophobic.

    Does anyone in the know know why this change occurred?

    Hjalp!
  • EA reformatted all of it's forums, and installed new board software. At least that's what i thought I read.

    Yeah, the old forums suddenly crashed, so they fast tracked the upgrade to these new forums. Features and stuff will get tweaked as we go along.
  • forum crashed
    installed new version
    ported all in
    now fixing all the new stuff

    seems to be what happened in short

  • I'm so glad the forum is back. I was getting withdrawl symptoms. :)

  • The merge function seems to work now! Yay!
  • When looking at some of the old locked posts I found posts attributed to me that were not posted by me. They were from other people who had replied to my posts.

    Are you talking about topics? I think that is listing any topics you've posted in...

    Well, if they're brilliant-sounding, just leave things alone and take credit for them. :mask:

  • Ew, this looks terrible. At least it's back, I guess.

    Specifically, this post. The very first post is attributed to me, but that's not my post. That was a reply to my post.
  • :/
    No sir, I just don't like it
  • This certainly looks and works lot better on my phone than the old site did.
  • Thanks for the update LPN. I'm not crazy about the new format, but I'm sure like all changes, I'll get used to it.
  • Yeah, not totally liking the new format so far. I'll try not to be a complainer though until tweaks are made. What forum software is this? I'm assuming it's mobile friendly though unlike the previous version?
  • Yeah wow, a bit of a shock but glad we're back!
