Thanks for helping to make our first couple days on the new forums such a success! It’s been really great seeing everyone come over and start getting acquainted with the new features. Throughout this soft launch process, @Jeffybug and I are really stressing the fact that the new forums are very much a work in progress. This is because Discourse allows us to be really creative in how we customize the forums to suit the community. More on that below…
We’ve already gotten some extremely valuable feedback from many of you- both “positive” and “negative” (both kinds are equally important to us by the way)- and we’re already talking amongst ourselves and our Discourse counterparts to see how best to process that feedback and implement it where possible.
Having bored you with all that, I’m excited to announce our first new forum feature: “Dev Tracker”! Dev Tracker allows you to follow along with topics and conversations that Gearbox developers and staff are having within the community! It’s never been uncommon to see GBX’rs interacting with the community… If you knew where to look. Dev Tracker takes the mystery out of the process by giving you one button to click. To use DT, just click the button at the top of the page and off you go!
We hope you guys enjoy this first new feature that we’ve put together for you and the new forums in general. More rad additions will be coming in the near future, so please keep the feedback of ALL kinds coming and know that we’re listening!
