VEX Forum Upgrade 2019


#1

Hi everyone,

As some of you may remember, we migrated the VEX Forum to esoTalk a little over 3 years ago now. When we made this decision, we had planned on soon moving both the VEX EDR and VEX IQ Forums to a new forum software that was (and still happens to be) in development, named Flarum.

In this time, we’ve seen a number of spam problems with esoTalk and a variety of other web security issues arise with vBulletin, the VEX IQ forum software. With no projected launch to Flarum in sight, we’ve made the decision to reverse course, and combine both the VEX EDR and VEX IQ Forums on a different forum software named Discourse. (NOT to be confused with Discord. As many others did when <a href="https:[ function differently. Please take some time to check out the links above and figure things out. As we make the transition, we will tweak some of the settings to whatever works best for our communities.

Let me know if you have any questions. We appreciate your patience during the transition!will](Chief Delphi made a similar migration about a month ago))

As someone that uses both forums, the IQ forum is calm, people ask great questions and get answers. The information to noise ratio awesome, so little noise, so much info.

Please don’t merge.

Agreed. But make the site secure as well.

As someone who uses all three platforms, the noise-to-information ratio in chiefdelphi has become almost unbearable, since the Discourse platform doesn’t organize by topic, only chronology. Or if it does, it’s not intuitive to set up that way from the user end. Please don’t merge.
