The RockBand.com forums have served us well for the last few years, but we’re getting ready for a makeover. We last updated the site back in 2010 for the launch of RB3, and we made changes roughly once a year before that, so some of you may already be familiar with the process.
To prep for this, the forums will be down for a few days starting Monday December 9th. The temporary outage will be for the best, as we’re taking that time to update the entirety of the forum framework. Maintaining user accounts has been a high priority for us, so if you’re already registered to RockBand.com then your profile, username, and password should be the same on the new forums. Additionally, all existing threads and posts should be archived during the transition, so expect all your favorite conversations to carry over too. Historically we've been unable to carry some private info forward in forum migrations, so you may want to back up any PMs or friend list contacts just to be safe.
The new forum service will be loaded with some awesome features we’ll lay out for you when we’re back up and running (sneak preview: forum achievements!), and we think it’ll be an awesome upgrade for everyone involved. Expect the forums to return with the full site relaunch by Friday December 13th.
We’re posting this in advance so that no one is caught unaware. While the forums are down you’ll still be able to get your RB fix from our usual social channels, so no worries there. Keep posted for more info!
