Going to be completely honest, the way the forums are working now are doing my head in and its really becoming a limited experience/hassle.

Changes that need to be made:

1. Put back the "remember me" checkbox for sign in! I have no idea why this doesn't exist anymore. The forums log me out about every 20-30 minutes of inactivity.
2. I have 13,000 posts, but still can only post 5 things within 10 minutes or I get banned... uh, why? Why not use this limit for people with under 10 posts? Makes way more sense to do it this way.
3. Android and iPhone support. I've been asking about this for ages and all I hear is that there are no plans for it. This site is just an annoyance on mobile and tablet devices as you have to constantly scroll in and out, left and right to do what you want to do.


Anyone with me? Who wants these features applied?

Agreed on all three.

Logging in over and over is a hassle.

And the autoban system is just bothersome and gets in the way of a nice forum conversation

the iphone support would be an added benefit. I would def use it

Does anyone get logged out when they try to go to their profile?

Always, because of that I never enter my profile anymore.

Nope, so far! I get a red circle thingy for a few seconds but I'm still logged-in after the profile loads.

Limit posting should be around 30-50. Spammers can sometimes reach over that, you know.
But I agree with everything.

JustPlainQuirky

I say if you have 500-1,000 posts or more, you should be immune to the spambot

aaaaaaaand i was just logged out again. :I

Yep.

And yes to all of the above - although a higher limit for spambot detection inclusion would probably be best. Either way it'll be less work for me unbanning all you guys (not that I ever got banned or anything)...

I agree that this forum needs a major cleanup. Once the tools for shifting over accounts and threads gets implemented, I'd suggest this software: http://www.discourse.org/

Just look at how clean and simple the homepage of their Meta forums looks: https://meta.discourse.org/categories

And look at a spruced up website using the same software: https://talk.turtlerockstudios.com/categories

We're always working to improve them. It is nice to hear your suggestions.

I previously had the profile issue as well but it is no longer happening. Have you guys tried clearing your Ubisoft cookies?

Cleared all my cookies last week, same stuff happens. It would be nice if you could pass these on please, especially the first 2 options. Having the remember me box removed is mind boggling and for someone with over 13,000 posts to get banned after posting 5 in 10 minutes cause they might be a spammer is also ridic.

Maybe it's working correctly then in your case.. ;)



As I have said previously - all of these have been suggested in the past - and have been again ;)

Maybe we could make a separate forum for usernames containing "baba" and/or threads with "baba" in the subject.

I just got logged out just by visiting my profile. So yeah, it needs some work.

Umm... I haven't ran into the log out problem. Then again, I don't really check my profile that often. lol! But mobile support would be awesome. There were several times I wanted to use my phone on here and it just became too much of a hassle.

Also, I haven' been knocked of for spamming either. :/ Hopefully I haven't spoke too soon on these matters. ah!

I hated the time when we had to enter in a code for every post. So annoying!

To make the forums less spam'able by some persona from India is to make us register our games to enter a particular forum. The BioWare Social Forums(BSN)used to do that, and it was spam free. They don't anymore, but I still don't see spam in their forums.

Yes, however I think only one person works on the forums as we still don't have a remember me box.

Personally I haven't experienced random logouts

the only time the forums ever log me out is when I leave the account idle, but the time it takes for that to happen is inconsistent

The posting limit has never been a problem for me, but an Android version would be nice. Remember Me box is require though, seriously.

The biggest problem with the forums right now is that at least for the last few nights the forum has been overrun with spam threads that push all the relevant topics to page 2 or three.

There surely has to be a remedy for this?!

Was trying to sign-in a few minutes ago, but it kept saying "Login error" under the password box. My caps lock was off and made sure to type in my email and pw correctly. So I tried logging in through uplay.ubi.com and it worked fine! Eh?! wierd huh?
