    Sorry if it's a weird question. I am just wondering.
    Not a weird question

    But no need to worry - I've tested the new site on relatively old hardware and it's pretty much as smooth as here.

Or to put it simply are they just being moved to the new site and we can all carry on as normal?
    Yes, in a nutshell, those threads will just carry on as normal on the new forum

    What does this also mean for various titles for people with Gamer/Protagonist/Hero/etc

    All the best
    Danielsun
    The titles might be gone from the start, but once you synch your account you will have your posts under your account again, so with that, the automated promotion system we're using should be able to restore them again during its next update cycle.

    So in short, I expect those to carry on as normal, too

    Cheers Driber, I appreciate the clarification

    But seriously - if it's not a problem I'd still like to see an answer for my previous question.

    We received requests from the community to install Papatalk - a forum plugin that lets people with smartphones easily browse and post on the forum. We'll look at the possibility of implementing that

    About PMs? I've taken note of it, but I don't have an answer on that yet I'm afraid. I'll post an update when I do

    Thanks. It''s just that 10 days passed without any mention so I assumed that the question was overlooked.

    Sorry it comes a little late, but I wanted to say thanks a lot to you, Driber, and all others behind the scenes, for this compromise. You've alleviated my concerns fully.

    I've just one other follow-up query. Will there still be an advanced search feature available for use in the locked archive version of this forum? I have to admit that I'd balk at having to track down some of the older stuff here manually.

    ^ We haven't specifically discussed that, so no guarantees, but just from the top of my head I can't see why not.

    Failing that, though, there is always Google

    I have seen so many busy forums have an 'upgrade' and then go really quiet afterwards. It's good that the team here are really thinking about the aspects of this forum to preserve. The 'start afresh' thought would have been a terrible idea and I'm really glad that isn't going to happen. It is sad to the Eidos name go with all it's links to the rise of TR but glad to see we are still going to keep the forums we visit so often rather than given a totally new replacement one.

    So all posts and threads will carry over? Including this thread? Also, will we be limited only to Tomb Raider (2013) discussion or will Classic series discussions & Level Editor board carry over as well?

    I'm starting to feel like Holly here




    Heh.


    Yes, the current plan is to move all forum sections and all threads/posts over to the new board

    The forum looks ridiculous now tbh. Avatar and info should have stayed at left. This is just my opinion though. It looks bad at current situation.

    We do not yet have an ETA on the migration date.

    Best is to subscribe to this thread. I'll be posting updates here when they are available.

    I much prefer all the information together on one side too. It made sense and looked much tidier.
    Like anything though... I guess we'll get used to it.

    Heh, soon you will, Jack.

    Though we don't have a solid ETA yet, so I'm afraid I can only be vague about the time frame at this point.

    But we're currently in the process of testing a simulated version of the migration to make sure all will go smooth, and so far we're making good progress

    Will the forum be integrated with the Square Enix forums then, or will be staying separate as it is now?

    Noticed the thread now, excuse me I ask that question.

    Yes, as explained, we're moving to the new SE forums.

    And what will happen with all the users, posts and threads here? Everything will be removed, or will just be moved, as I know SE's forums use vBulletin too. Just curious. By the way, thanks for the answers, Driber.

    With the new NA/EU forum merges, it looks like my old SE forum account was wiped. I signed up for the Nosgoth closed beta, and it gave me a new forum account (my profile says it was registered today, even though I signed in using my old credentials from years ago). I don't have many posts over here, but I'll be interested to see how my existing ones get preserved. Hopefully it goes over smoothly. Anyway, Happy Christmas (I like the decorations here, haha)!
