    I don't like my name either and would really like to change it, but sadly we won't be able to do that -_-
    I already asked when the 1st migration announcement was made :/
    The only way to get ur desired name is to make new account just for forum use >.>

    I much prefer the way it was before when you could pick your name on forum based on your characters. I dont like it the way it is now, for all the rest it looks good, but this name ruins it for me. Why? because is my account name! something you dont really want to make all open for everyone!

    Oh well, Vanilla arrived. You guys really messed up. I recently worked with the vanilla forum software and whatever you did here is quite a pain. How can someone mess up the layout like you did? You always talk about your QA, where is it? Don't they test the forums? Seriously, this is not even a halfhearted migration. This is just rubbish considering the delay we had to endure.

    With all the money you receive it should be possible to employ at least one professional web-developer to fix the design.

    FW user: new arc forum totally overwhelming for one thing. Another thing, we all need to put initials of game we are discussing into the first part. If not I see no sence of visiting the forum, it's useless to me. I need order and easy to read set up or my ADD kicks in!

    I've always been told to look before I leap and I try too, but can't do that here, oh well....

    Oh, and please don't pick apart every word I say and don't give me a link to follow, I cannot click on it for some reason.

    If you insist upon using this, could you possibly consider choosing an easier to read format? Everything is black and white. There is little to no font definition between forum titles and content making it extremely difficult to read and navigate.

    I'd recommend taking a look at this thread: testing, bug-hunting, and finding exploits. There some knowledgeable users from other games created css and javascript improvements for the forum which improve readability and design massively.

    Edit: Also, there are these > tiger-2.gif and maaaany more onion-7.gif.

    I would be really happy if i dont need to manually write down the bbcode for lightblue everytime i post to see it better.
    Could you guys add a font color change opinion to the reply menu?
    And give us back the old smileys?

    You may find the search on top of the page. However they successfully managed to decompose a capable forum software. Such great effort by PWE need some appreciation ...
