    Isn't it bad enough we have to put up with gold sellers in game? Do you think you could perhaps get a better spam filter?
    One of the things we're working on in the coming weeks is an overall improved forum performance. The solutions I'm looking at include much better mobile options for the forums as well as a better way to handle spam. So: yes, that's a good idea.

    Maybe limit the posts of new users?
    The only way that someone from Cluster 2 is actually as bad as you all say is if they started playing this game in 2.3 (Free to Play launch).

    That's a great one, actually.

    After all these years, the back end of our forums are a bit clunky. They need some redoing. It's in the works, but it takes a bit of time to get all those balls rolling.

    I'm just glad to hear that things are getting done. It was bad yesterday with the soccer game spam. It was just post after post after post, and it was early so no mods were on.

    Might as well make money at it? Sell the privilege to post from an account, under some sort of exclusions like maybe established accounts? That way CC's could get banned from buying forum posting access! I'm fulluh ideas and other stuff too, FWIW.

    Forums here are using 4.1.3 ... yet vBulletin is currently on 5.0.4. Upgrade and hey look. This is, of course, assuming you wouldn't need to recode the bridge for Trion account <=> vBulletin.

    Also: vb4 mobile.

    There's the ball rolling.

    But those who already have access to the forums get grandfathered in. I'm not paying to argue with people on the internet

    I agree. I should have used a term related to grandfathering instead of exclusions, it's what I really meant. Think of the income potential if people have to buy new posting access if they continually break forum rules! It ought to amount to millions in income!

    And the best part about it, they couldn't come crying to forums to complain about it!

    Well, whilst you're retooling the back end, perhaps you could enhance the search capabilities to allow full Boolean text searching in the basic search.

    Search for:

    dahanese "good job" -elrar

    or

    dahanese "good job" !elrar

    or

    dahanese AND "good job" NOT elrar

    And you'll get the same number of hits as it pushes it through as an OR search. All of them brought up, as the 6th hit, the thread What happened to Elrar??????. This is annoying, especially how voluminous the forums and archives are now.
    Fahrenheit and Celsius temperature scales have probably not been rationalized due to puritanical reasons. If the freezing point in both scales was 0, then body temperature would be 66.6F. If it was 32 degrees, body temperature would be 69C.

    Silly reason, no matter how you think of it.

    Every time you receive an infraction on the forums you'd have to pay $1 before being able to post again. Trion would become quite rich from that.

    Way ahead of you in that regard. By "ball rolling" I mean more along the lines of dev and graphical time. I've actually been working on forum improvements for about... two and a half months now?

    We don't usually talk about those changes before they are far along in the process - and our VB is quite customized, so updating is a bit more difficult than that.

    Is there any chance of an ETA on the changes?

    I don't have a work flow from ops and web dev yet, but I'm going to spitball at 45-60 days. I'm hoping sooner.
