#1
I've made some (reversible, if it all goes wrong) changes to the forum

I've moved the bug reports forum, and the suggestions forum, and the technical support forum in under an "obsolete" forum where they have been effectively mothballed.

The replacements for these forums are the following:

A bug tracker
https://brilliantskies.customercase.com/...ug-tracker
A request tracker
https://brilliantskies.customercase.com/...st-tracker
A private technical support portal (if your game does not start, for example)
https://brilliantskies.customercase.com/...rt-private

The bug tracker and request tracker have the following advantages:

1) They allow "up voting", player commenting, developer commenting, and live status updates. You can watch an issue which will give you email alerts. They also support drag and drop attachments, linking to components, versions, operating systems etc.
2) They are not tied to this, or any other forum. Currently the steam forum has a Suggestions and a Bugs section, this forum has a Suggestions, Bugs and Tech support forum, the discord presumably has a lot of bug related and suggestion related discussion going on all the time, and the reddit has also got similar conversations going on. This makes it impossible to create a centralised pool of bugs and feature requests- let alone a pool where the importance of the bug or feature is reflected in the number of up votes / comments on it.

I'm sorry to be depreciating several sub forums with thousands of threads. The threads are left open so you can link them from the request tracker or bug tracker if you need to. New threads should exclusively be made in the trackers however.

This is part of a push, that I hope you are aware of, to bring FTD development to the next level- with a transparent sprint based approach to development, new staff, and now, new and integrated request and bug trackers.
Reviewed FtD on steam yet? It's the #1 thing you can do to help FtD (and future games by Brilliant Skies!), so please take the time!
Bug tracker - view, "upvote", comment on and add all bugs here.
Request tracker - request new features here
support - private portal to service desk
