    Too bad all the old posts have disappeared, or will they be moved here eventually?

    I have to say, this new forum is absolutely atrocious to use on my phone, not liking it at all

    The unsecure old forums will stay there waiting for somebody to breach.

    I'm not sure I'm actually surprised at a last minute complete overhaul for forums that've been in beta for months and then hitting the "WE'RE GOING LIVE NOW" button.

    They won't be moved, they'll be archived and then forgotten. I.e. the old forums will be locked and sit there until Kakao decides they no longer want to be held accountable for **** said there.

    The old forums had SSL for ages, it's only recently it's been removed. Meanwhile, these forums, that're *TIED TO YOUR GAME ACCOUNT* launched without SSL. It's not exactly a rose garden.

    We had a thread discussing the features of these new forums, but then they did an overhaul and all of it has to be re-learned.

    Indeed, there's a LOT of unnecessary white space on the new layout that they deployed today.

    I have to agree that it's a bit too big.

    Edit:

    Don't know why they changed it, this design is dreadful.

    There's an absolutely incredible amount of downright wasted space going on.

    Why is there a 25 pixel border between posts for example?

    Why are there 3 separate top bars taking up 162 pixels at a minimum? That's 15% of a standard 1080p monitor drained away for a glorified home button.

    Why is the title of the thread on a transparent background with a greyish font obscuring it?

    And why does every single post need to be absolutely massive just so I can see when people joined and that they have a level 20 tamer on their account?

    And so on. The "old" beta forums had a criticism and getting things right thread and then on the same week they're going to launch, they completely overhaul the entire thing without feedback.

    I could just be spoiled with the size of my monitor but I don't feel any of the issues you brought up. It just looks clean to me.

    The leading banner/control area is way too large and the area at the bottom of the page is also excessively eating display area for posts. Half the display is gone - eaten away by nonsense. Awkward and awful. :(

    My main monitor is 1440p but it's still bloody obvious that there's way too much wasted space here.

    I don't think it's reasonable to make a design for anything larger than 1440p when the game forum in question is about BDO though.
