Just saw this when going to the forum posts of Irrational Games:
This is a very important message concerning the Irrational Games forum. Please make sure you read this very carefully as this is applicable to All MEMBERS.
During the next couple of weeks, the Irrational Games forums will be joining the 2K forums and we want to make sure that this transition happens as smoothly as possible.
Here are some things we recommend you do to ensure your account has a seamless transition:
- Verify that the email address you have on file is correct and valid. To do this, make sure you’re logged in to the IrrationalGames.com forums > My Account > Settings (under Basic Info) > Account Email
- To those who have a registered account on the 2K forums, you’ll need to make sure both email addresses match on both Irrational Games forums and the 2K forums for a successful merge.
- For usernames that exist in both forums, there will be an additional identifier added to the end of the username that belongs to the Irrational Games forum user.
So what does this mean for you? Well, here’s a list of features you can look forward to after the merge:
- A fully featured forum environment, meaning customizable posts, post previews, multi-quoting, editable posts, etc.
- A more robust search tool.
- Easier navigation.
- Comprehensive personal settings.
- Online status indicators
- ...and much more!
If you have any other questions or concerns regarding this migration, please post it below and we’ll try our best to address them.
Thanks for your cooperation!
As mentioned, if you are a user at Irrational Games and have questions or concerns about the topic merger, you can address them to the Irrational Games thread.
04/25/12 UPDATE: Today, the forum merger is currently happening. But first, a site maintenance test is initiated, which will temporarily shut off both 2K and Irrational Games sites from users. Until its completed in a few hours, both sites will be redirected to 2K's maintenance page with this message:
The 2K Forums are down for scheduled maintenance. When we come back, we’ll be chock full of Irrational Games and BioShock Infinite forum awesomeness!
This is a major process and could end up taking a few hours (this message posted at 10am PDT). If there are any major delays expected, we'll post an update to this message.
In the meantime, you can find us on Twitter and Facebook.
