Community Forums

Hey all!

We've just implemented a new version of our old forum ranks!

The new "Idle Villager" rank has some slightly limited abilities here in the forums, and they cannot post discussions or do things like post links or set a signature on their posts. When you have commented 3 times you'll reach the rank of "Scout Cavalry" and gain all the usual posting abilities! This is to help combat spam, and should not affect most of you, as you have likely already posted more than 5 times and have a higher rank:)

Check out the list of ranks here: https://forums.ageofempires.com/discussion/15139/forum-rank-system/p1?new=1

Website Suggestions

Hi guys, @Plus2Joe and @jennywaboom announced on the Age of Empires weekly stream today that the Age of Empires community team is looking for website feature suggestions for all Age games. This is a perfect opportunity to make your voice heard. I witnessed the Age of Empires community forum and website go through several iterations since Age of Empires Online was announced and some important community website features were lost in the process. Your suggestions can help make the current Age of Empires website the best that it can be. Please share this thread with your friends who play any of the Age games!

    The game page for AoE:DE states that Windows 10 version 14393.0 or higher is required.

    The AoE:DE pre-order page in the Windows Store states that Windows 10 version 15063.0 or higher is required.

    Please update the website to state that Windows 10 version 15063.0 or higher is required to play the game, same as the Windows Store app page.

    The social media link to the Age of Empires Instagram account is present on most of the website except for the Community section. Please add it so that forum members who visit the Community section primarily are informed about the Age of Empires Instagram account.

    ESOC ELO ladder would be very lovely. Or a maintained jpcomm elo ladder.

    I'd like to see a section on our forum to advertise streaming/video channels (twitch, mixer, youtube etc.). It may also make sense to have a place for clans to advertise for the different games.

    I like this idea, sounds like a great thing that would benefit all communities.
    A similar list of live streams to the one at http://eso-community.net/ could work well here if it included all Age games in it.

    Fix the bugs with the reactions (Spams) first.

    I had 2 spams on my account. When the posts flagged as Spam got removed I still had 2 spams on my account, ok no problem. Then within a day 2 spams increased to 12 spams even though I did not post anything that would had been considered as spam, and again I cannot see any posts under Spams. I asked AndyP and he doesn't know. I messaged @snickerdoodle and @jennywaboom but no response yet.

    Got a reply from @jennywaboom. The bug with the reactions is being fixed. :)

    I would just like to be able to see who replied most recently to a post when in a category like this page. At present all you can see is who posted the discussion.

    I have two questions / suggestions:

    • is it possible to change sensitivity for mouse / TrackPoint?
    • is it possible to add function for calling all villagers to defense village center?
      Thx

    No, I don't think it's possible to do these things through a website.

    Not sure whether this is a feature of the website, or moderators trying out some stuff or whatever, but I would highly suggest removing this feature where the forum posts messages under my name when I'm asleep: https://forums.ageofempires.com/discussion/2729/trying-to-recover-old-account#latest

    Imagine my surprise as I enter a thread with "unread messages", only to find out someone posted a message there under my own username. I find that seriously messed up.

    Or maybe it was a wrong post from a older post that got submitted at the wrong topic.
    I don't know but the forum behaviour is a bit weird sometimes.

    It's too bad such articles on the website can't be found at all, but can only be accessed if given the exact link. There should be a section, a tab on the main webpage where you could find these articles, like there is 'Games', 'News', 'Community', 'Media' etc. Something called Encyclopedia, or History, or Learn whatever, just put it there. The only way to find out these articles exist is when you post them on facebook. But what about people that will come check this website for such content later on?

    It's under Games > Age of Empires DE > Civilization History, then click on the timeline for each civilization to read the history article.

    I think a spoiler alert function would be a nice addition.

    And please fix that double scroll bar at the page bottom. Just completely take out the overflow-x: hidden from .Footer class in _Footer.scss file. Edge doesn't like it and FF doesn't care if it's gone. Didn't test Chrome browser though.
