Dear Kings and Queens,
thank you for providing all the feedback regarding the removal of the Guild Forum. Your feedback is always very important to us and shall not go unheard.
Therefore we have decided to postpone the removal of the Guild Forum to a later day.
This means, the Guild Forum will not be deactivated on October 5th, 2020. We haven't decided yet on a new date, when the Guild Forum shall be removed, as we first want to look into all the feedback that you have provided us with. Afterwards we will evaluate what can be added or improved in the current Message Center, to make the transition from Guild Forum to the Message Center easier.
We know, that there are still some guilds out there, that actively use and value the Guild Forum in it's current form and we don't want to take away this feature without properly addressing some of the aspects that you have mentioned. It is however not our intention to change the Message Center in a way, to replace the current Guild Forum 100%. Not every functionality of the Guild Forum can and will be taken to the Message Center. Nevertheless, we are confident, that some of the changes can make the overall experience and usage of the Message Center more valuable for all players.
