    Exclamation LOTRO Community Site Known Issues

    Last Updated: August 1, 2013

    Forums

    • Some navigation elements may not be properly translated into German and French.
    • If you have chosen French or German as the forum display language, the language switches back to EN anytime you switch forums.
    • Some links, attachments, and images in forum posts may need to be updated.
    • Avatars have been reset to use default images.
    • You may need to edit your signature to clean up broken links, BB code, or remove the discontinued character signature code.



    The LOTRO Lottery

    • The Lottery pages are not translated into German and French. All players will see these pages in English. German and French translations will be added in a future update.
    • Character data may not be up to date.


    Links and Articles




    Character Copy

    • Currently Character copy is unavailable.

    Just wanted to say that I love the new forums. Not perfect but a vast improvement.

    2 things I would like to see are:

    1. An indication that I have a private message, like "Private Message(3)". I had no clue that you guys were asking me about my signature until I hit the Private Message button at random one day.

    2. I still have to make a spam post or hunt down my name in someone's thread so I can check my post history.


    Those are just minor quibbles though, I am very happy with the new forums.

    Is there any plan to make the new website scale to it's browser window size?

    Right now the narrowest window I can go without clipping text is way too wide. It's hard to read the long lines of text and this one window covers almost all of my screen. In the past I have been able to have the forum page open in a window that takes up a bit under 1/3 of my screen and other tasks open in the rest of the screen. This let me use the forums on downtime but still easily see when I needed to switch attention back to work. With the new forums needing this much screen space participation and following game changes, announcements, etc. will be much less frequent since I can rarely devote time just to that.

    I second that. I know about the alert popup, and I have turned it on. Would still love an indication like this.

    The icons for read and unread message are switched around. The unread envelope is open. And the read is closed. Not intuitive at all

    The only thing that I currently would like to see added to the forum is the ability to remain logged in, like the previous forum allowed. Definitely not a huge hindrance at the moment...but it would be convenient to already be logged in the the forums each day when I open this site. Then I can get straight to business.

    Just wanted to note that the Icon Legend that is situated at the bottom of the Subscriptions has icons that are so small as to be almost illegible.
    If they were just a touch larger they could mean something.

    Are we no longer able to track our characters through the community website? I don't see where completed quests/deeds are posted for my account or if there is still a page for my kinship. Is that all gone or am I completely missing something?

    As stated before, you do not need to make a spam post to check your post history. In your post above, click on your forum name to get the context menu. Click and hold on the "View Forum Posts" link and drag it to your desktop. Or right-click on "View Forum Posts" and select the option to bookmark the link to add it directly to your bookmarks. Either way you will have a bookmark that will open a page to show you all of the posts you've made. Your link is: https://www.lotro.com/forums/search....st&showposts=1

    I agree that it's not as convenient as having a link on the forum page. But it does work. You can even copy it to the bookmarks toolbar if your browser has one to make clicking it easier.

    Just a FYI...

    Using the breadcrumb list at top of the page, when clicking the forum "crumb" it takes you to the activity stream instead of the forum home page.

    The home icon also takes you to the activity stream.

    Any ETA when this might be restored? It's still an issue.
