    Exclamation IMPORTANT! Upcoming new forum platform!

    By public request - a status update as things stand on 25/3 12:30CET: We are in the process of moving all the data from the old database into the new one. There is quite a bit of data to be migrated so it will take a while still. Hopefully this stage will end tonight. When that is done we will go through the new forums and make sure things work as we want it to. I don't dare to give you any ETA just yet, but maybe tomorrow the new platform could be up and running so you can try it out.

    Some answers to questions I've seen:
    - Your game registrations will carry over from these forums. No need to register them CD keys again. You may want to make polish your profile to make it look exactly like you want.
    - If your account isn't merged yet! Then just click "returning user" on the new forum and select to create a paradox account. It will be easier for you if that Paradox account has the same email address as your current forum account has. But it's not necessary. You will need your old forum password one last time however, so I hope you haven't had auto login on for years anf forgot about it
    Due to the massive amount of traffic to the forums following the Cities: Skylines launch, we decided to postpone this a week. So the new dates for this is 23/3-27/3 unless something else is communicated! Thanks for your patience!
    CLARIFICATION! - ONLY POSTS MADE BETWEEN 23/3 AND UP UNTIL THE SWITCH IS COMPLETE WILL BE LOST! EVERYTHING POSTED BEFORE THAT WILL BE TRANSFERRED. LATER YOU WILL ALSO BE ABLE TO ACCESS THESE FORUMS AND COPY PASTE OVER ANYTHING MADE IN THE TRANSITION PERIOD IF YOU WISH IT TO BE KEPT!
    Hi guys!

    The future is upon us! Through out the years vBulletin has served us well! Time has come for change however, and in two weeks we will be moving over to be using Xenforo instead. We've planned for about a week where the forum will be running on less than optimal grounds due to us having to tweak things, correct bugs etc. We ask for your patience and understanding during this time! We plan for this to happen the week between the 16th and 20th of March 2015!

    The new forum will come with a bunch of new features (of which we may remove/disable any at any time should they prove to not work out well) such as:
    - Developer post filtering (you can filter a thread to only show the developer posts in there)
    - Post and thread tagging/rating to help you find what you seek faster!
    - Improved account handling. We will move over to be using only Paradox Accounts which will make things run a lot smoother as today's double account system is cause for much dismay and confusion (Don't worry! You will appear exactly like you did on these forums still. Same display name, post count, registration date etc)
    - Much improved mobile compatibility
    ...and more!


    How will this affect you?
    - You will have to merge your forum account with a Paradox Account! We ask you to do it before we move to the new forums for an easier time for both you and us! You will still be given the same opportunities in the new forums if you didn't merge your account in time. To encourage this we will soon be removing the old login method and trigger everyone to be asked to merge once more.

    During the transition phase:
    - We will be keeping this old forum open in parallel during the transition phase. Please note that any posts made after March-16 on this forum will not be available on/copied to the new forum. We intend to keep the old forum open only to be able to communicate with you.
    The stages will be:
    1. This forum stops saving new posts/edits
    2. The new forum appears on forum.paradoxplaza.com - it will look very similar to the old ones using the Deep Blue Edited skin (the most commonly used one)
    3. The old forums will still be available, still in no saving mode on another domain that will be communicated to you
    4. When we are confident the new forum works properly we will put the old ones in a read only state. They will still be accessible on a URL communicated later, but only to read. No new posts can be made.


    Please note that you will keep the same forum name and PM restrictions on the new forums! No need to ask about that. Maybe it will change at some point, but not right away.

    Thank you!

    /Bjorn

    Castellon Edit:
    Popular questions:
    Q1) Have I merged my account?
    A)If you log in with your e-mail as user name then you have merged your account, If you log in with your forum nick then you have not merged your account. There is only those 2 situations. ie if you have merged your account the forum will not let you login with your forum name anymore.

    Q2) How do I merge accounts? *During the transition it is not possible to signup new accounts and it is not possible to merge accounts until the new forum is up.
    A)

    I have also turned off the ability to post attachments on this forum now and posted a warning to that effect.
    We have also shut off new member signup and registering games until the new forum is active.

    "Developer Post Tagging" sounds like a winner to me! Q however, "Developer" is not the same thing as "Paradox Employee" - So will it pick up posts from non-developer employees, e.g. Susana and Fred?

    Looking forward to a seamless changeover!

    Will everyone be sent an email about the change or will you display a 'warning' at the top of the forum ?
    Will you have notices in subforums ?

    Aside of that, looking forward to the new forum....and the obligatory complaints thread.

    People working for Paradox will have the choice of tagging a post as official information or just regular banter with other users. So there will be posts made by employees not filtered out in here. This should enable any Paradox employee to be active on the forums while still letting people find official information easily. With official information I mean news, posts like #1 in this thread, patch notes, announcements etc.

    No chances for user made polls?
    Good to have thread ratings back.
    And still no custom avatars, say for people with over 20000 posts?

    Ok, do stored personal messages get carried over? Along with some... eh, infractions/warnings? (castellon day soon...! )

    To be totally blunt, as certain things have indicated that if we/I don't give feedback, Paradox may not be aware of it.


    There are two things I want in a new forum. One of them I addressed yesterday, specifically outlining I'd still want it today, and the other is the ability to change my username.



    Xenforo
    Never heard of it. This makes me a bit nervous as to the quality.

    Developer post filtering
    Given the huge unique avatars the Devs have, this, IMO, is of limited use. Don't get me wrong, it is of use, it is a good idea, but it's not really the 'best thing since sliced bread'

    Post and thread tagging
    I am a bit confused as to exactly what this would mean. If it means I can click an icon to somehow personally sticky certain things, I'm all for it; but it seems to be the ability to add a word tag, which is of far less use.

    Improved account handling
    I hope this means the ability to change your username. If I understand how this might work, your "official" forum name would become your PDX account, but, that would be 'invisible' to everyone. For example, your PDX username might be xo~Bjorn_Bjornsenson~ox but only you would ever know that as you'd forever appear as "BjornB" What I hope is that since your "official" name is that long thing, you could change your username to "BjörnB" as your username only becomes what is 'visible' and your account name is stable.

    Much improved mobile compatibility
    To be honest, I don't care. Don't get me wrong, I don't mean to sound rude, but I do not use mobile devices. Sure I know many people do, but I don't. This point does not 'sell' to me, and as outlined, none of the above do either. Leading me to...

    ...and more
    Please outline some of these. As mentioned, none of the above really makes me think this is a good thing for me. Sure it's your forum, you are the owner, and can do whatever you want with it, but it sounds like you are trying to 'sell' people on the change - a logical move - but I am not 'sold'

    Great! Looking forward to this. Hopefully it will be warned properly on these forums though.

    Completely disagreeing with above post though. Personal stickies? meh, would cause confusion and be a big hassle. Word tags? Great! Dev post filtering? My dream! Xenforo? Good!

    Sold? You choose to use the forum, and it won't be reverted. To me, this is not tempting people, only information.

    I'd like to know this too.
    Even if it's just a one time thing, I'd love to change my username.

    I am a bit wary of the rating. What does that mean? Does it mean that if many people downvote your post it will be hidded/deleted? Because that would be horrible and really detrimental to the forum, since it can stiffle discussion if a majority just downvotes the disagreeing minority.
    During the transition phase:
    - We will be keeping this old forum open in parallel during the transition phase. Please note that any posts made after March-16 on this forum will not be available on/copied to the new forum. We intend to keep the old forum open only to be able to communicate with you.
    The stages will be:
    1. This forum stops saving new posts/edits
    2. The new forum appears on forum.paradoxplaza.com - it will look very similar to the old ones using the Deep Blue Edited skin (the most commonly used one)
    3. The old forums will still be available, still in no saving mode on another domain that will be communicated to you
    4. When we are confident the new forum works properly we will put the old ones in a read only state. They will still be accessible on a URL communicated later, but only to read. No new posts can be made.
    Does this mean that everything posted in that week won't be saved? Or can we post in the new forum during that week and have it saved there?
    As far as I understood on Castellon as recently as a few days ago, the posts made during the transition will be moved too, but edits won't. That has changed? Why?
    Also you won't transfer all old the old posts to the new forum?

For example, your PDX username might be xo~Bjorn_Bjornsenson~ox but only you would ever know that as you'd forever appear as "BjornB" What I hope is that since your "official" name is that long thing, you could change your username to "BjörnB" as your username only becomes what is 'visible' and your account name is stable.
    I certainly don't hope that they allow changing usernames on a whim, since that will break continuity on the forums and at least partially break the community. People know each other here which allowing changing usernames on a whim would start undermining. Furthermore allowing the change of usernames on a whim would make trolling easier, since you just change your username to something and then troll under that and then change back to your own.

    - They say ghosts lurk the elder parts of the forum, wraiths who registered, made the slightest mark, and then disappeared. Others say that if you look long enough, you'll find the Edge of the Forum, where any semblance of sanity ceases to exist. The darkest of rumors tell of a game where forum users lynch and eat each other, simply for the fun of it. The game is never ending, and one can never quite leave once joined. -- Dr. Livingstone
    - Very well put. Compared to the average person, I know all there is to know about Roman history. Compared to the paradox OT, I hardly know anything. Then again Roman history never interested me much.....not really my time period. -- Fire_Unionist
