    The SEF post from 2013, linked to a few posts back, indeed contains outdated information, as already mentioned.

    If you get an error message on SEF saying that your username is already taken, please sign up with a name as close to your EF username as possible, for example using dashes or underscores, guys.

    I'm not sure if that's true. Your nickname (and some of other members) may have simply already been taken in the new system the first time you tried to sign up.

    I know it's "first come, first serve", but still, the pain of it...



    Or in my case, Real. So my username on SE is RealNightRain.
    I feel your pain

    Love how you creatively solved it, though!

    Maybe, maybe not. I'm still waiting for confirmation one way or the other (because someone does have that information). I think it's highly improbable because "Paradoks" is not listed under user list on SEF (and users with no posts are listed), and it's not really a popular user name (and neither are many of the "already taken" examples listed by other people). So can someone with the right authority please check and tell me?

    We'll try to get confirmation, but I think it's unlikely that is the cause.

    As mentioned before, not all SEM nicknames show up on the forum member list, so we can't use the absence of a nickname there to determine if a nickname has been taken or not.

    As for "unlikely due to obscurity" - 1.5M hits on google tells me otherwise.

    I missed that part. Can I ask why (or why is that list and viewing user profiles available for not logged in users in the first place)? When I'm trying to make an account on SEF and get the information that a username is taken, I would assume that there would be some trace of the user with the said name on SEF. If there is I can't find it.

    And now tell me how many of those are nicknames on non-Polish forums.

    Theres 2 systems at play here.. Square Enix Members is the MAIN system. This is where you HAVE to register everything. However you dont HAVE to then go onto the forums.. If a user registers on SEM, that username is locked to that user. The moment they browse the forum it creates that account on the forums user system. IF they do this then the username will appear there. If you DONT see a username there then the user simply has never logged into the forums after creating their account..

    Make sense?

    So are you guys ever going to fix Deus Ex? Or is robbing consumers your number one priority? Like I even have to ask

    I have 30 posts and am still listed as a New Player. This post should be 31, is there a delay? Will it be listed as Gamer before the migration?

    Edit: looks like it updated now.

    Unsatisfied - this isn't really the appropriate place to ask such a question so it is very unlikely that you will receive a satisfactory response. Surely an email or letter directly to Square Enix would be more sensible?

    //Apologies in advance for the double-post but I couldn't figure out how to edit my previous post to add this. There doesn't seem to be an edit button?

    Driber, I'm really sorry but I got a bit confused about the whole forum move thing and now my new username is nothing like my old one. I hope it won't cause too many problems matching up my accounts.


    **Edit: The edit button is back so I've consolidated my two posts and deleted one.

    Did I survive the teleportation? *Checks for missing body parts* Yay I made it! Have to check out the new place. Gotta watch for spammers sneaking in that need to be reported.

    Question

    All forums/threads/posts from EF have been successfully imported
    With at least one curious exception: the entire 'General Discussion' forum for Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days, along with its 'Demo' sub forum, are missing on the forum page and in the 'Quick Navigation' menu.
    http://forums.eu.square-enix.com/forumdisplay.php?f=350

    It technically still exist in the server however, since i found it by digging my old accounts and looking at threads i created.
    http://forums.eu.square-enix.com/forumdisplay.php?f=349

    I had a laugh since its Off Topic sub forum along with months old spam thread survived the transition, and heck, even decade old forums such as Lego Star Wars actually got imported!

    Also in unrelated news, this new change weirds me out in unspeakable fashion:

    Gamer
    Your PM box can now hold 500 messages
    And to think the amount of time i spent back in the years when i had but a Gamer status in organizing the then limited PM box size of just 100 messages!

    But as it turns out, that's not all!

    Protagonist
    Your PM box can now hold 2000 messages

    Hero
    Your PM box can now hold 5000 messages

    Guess I made it. Now I just need my protagonist tag back. And my name. Why I can't change my name to Vallux with a V, I do not know.

    Before the migration I tried to register my usual username 'R Soul' but I think it said it was invalid, so I used 'R_Soul' and it worked. Now that the migration is done I see R Soul was transferred. I can only log in with my email address, and that activates the R_Soul account, although I'm sure they both use the same email address. I'd prefer to use the R Soul account. There's a cat in the avatar and everything.

    Thanks.

    I kinda wondered if this was ever going to happen in the past given that SE has owned Edios in the past few years or so.

    Does this forum use vBulletin software?

    Sorry I couldn't remember but it was mentioned you wanted our first post here to be I think a comment about the new forum. Is that right? If I'm wrong could someone please redirect me? If I am right I mean it looks OK. It looks like there's more things to do so that's great. Sorry to be brief.

    Edit: are we going to get our old titles back because I'm currently at registered user like I'm a newbie and even though I am new to the forum this is a transition so I was wondering if we get our old titles back in the transition?

    Yes, we are. My understanding is the mod's are going to start working on that tomorrow.

    oh well, my compliments for the fabulous forums port... -_- I had to register again, losing everything of my account, PM included. Most of them were very important, since they had technical details for the editor.

    The site said the forum importation was completed succesfully, so why I don't see any "Thief Series" forum? For example I am searching the keyword "St. Edgars" who refers to this forum: http://forums.eidosgames.com/showthread.php?t=154339, why I can't find it in the search?

    Driber ~ I hope you don't mind that I've done this.

    This is to help others have their accounts synched as I've just discovered the thread today on Eidos Forums and have input my request.


    So, to others ~
    If you would like to request having your Eidos account information preserved into your new SE account, click and read this thread from the Eidos Forums ~> Account synch instructions.

    As the thread indicates, please keep in mind they're synching information manually so have patience.

    I don't know. I'm not the Lord of the Search Engine. But that's where it is; you can go look for yourself if you don't believe me.

    Here's a link for your convenience: Thief Series

    And for the record, if you want your account to merge with your old one you can follow the directions here: Account Synch

    Here's hoping posting puts changes me from "Registered User" back to "Gamer".

    Thanks for updating my profile.
