Making the transition to Boards

TL;DR: We're permanently moving to the boards on October 6 and the original forums will be converted to read-only and archived indefinitely with the same index of content as you're used to. With your feedback, we've built a new board (http://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/f/mNBeEEkI) that remains as faithful to the classic forum experience as possible, and we'll continue to work alongside you to make the boards even better in the future.

For many of you, that's huge news and a big change. We get it. But we've also been working for over a year now to solve the problems plaguing the classic forums and we're long past the point where having two different official forum platforms makes sense.

We've shared most of the reasons why we have to change before, but instead of sending you all over the internet to find those posts, let's summarize:

  • The classic forum technology limits our efforts to make any changes at all, let alone improve the community experience
  • The classic forum doesn't scale well and the League community grew faster than anyone expected
  • As there isn't a feedback loop within the classic forums to explain moderation actions, moderation continued to become more challenging
  • There are a number of security issues with the classic forums, and we aren't comfortable compromising when it comes to security
A few of the other reasons are specific to the nested-view, new boards experience we won't reiterate here (many of you have told us you don’t agree that nested-view and community-voted experiences are better at sorting and exposing relevant content, for example).

We received a ton of feedback on what you're looking for in a community platform over the last few months. As a result, we created GD on the boards (http://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/f/mNBeEEkI) that's faithful to the classic forum experience. That means bumping threads for visibility, viewing discussions in chronological order, a Red Tracker in the thread that works the way you're used to, and quoting (although, we're still ironing out the kinks there) among a number of small tweaks to make it feel more like the classic forums. And we added a few new things, too, like how you now can report posts directly to a 24/7 moderation team.

We've been testing that board for a couple weeks, with everyone invited to try it last week out via that giant red banner on the classic General Discussion forums. Based on the test results and the feedback we received, we've reached the point where we can move forward with a full-on transition to the boards.

Building the boards has been a long journey (more than a year and counting of constant feedback loops and iteration alongside the community), and it doesn't end when we turn the classic forums to read-only. We'll keep seeking feedback and ways to improve as we go, and together we can make the boards even better.

EDIT:
To whomever it may concern:

• First and foremost: Don't dismiss the new boards immediately
• The new boards are nothing like the old boards revealed months ago
• The new boards are nothing like reddit
• The new boards are much like GD
• The new boards are being updated according to feedback as we speak
• Don't complain about the quote system. See above.
• FEK 3.0 for boards is close to completion and will probably be up in at least a workable state on the 6th
• FEK 3.0 will have most, if not all the functionality of current FEK
• FEK 3.0 will most likely have color schemes, so if you don't like it, you can wait a bit.

Quote:
Better Ban Sona:
For clarification, when FEK 3.0 gets released for the boards, it will have only base features to begin with. It will mainly function only for avatars until the other features get added back in.

It's going to take a bit of time and effort, but we will get FEK functioning as normal ASAP.

Can you not focus on more important things at hand such as fixing the server issues?
