You can actually change your proofing name. I have because mine was totally embarrassing

This is because, on reflection, there is a lot of conversation between players there that seems to be not exactly game related like a bug report, but, more importantly, beneficial for those users mental health.  For those reasons, I'll be keeping those areas open with redirects to the new home should those players choose to move.

Legend👍 Thank you

Legend👍 Thank you 

We are having meetings internally next week to decide the wider Codemasters Forums fate, but we are trying and aiming to keep some sections of the forums. Could come down to wider factors, and the value of keeping the tech with limited or no support. Either way @ScaredDuck, we will find a home for more casual home for some F1/motorsport discussion.

@BarryBL any chance of the community content posted across the 2019-2021 forums ever disappearing or being fenced off? If so, could you give us a heads up?

There are posts here I still go back to from time to time when rethinking setups and handling technique or racing tech in general. Would appreciate a notice to comb them one more time and save them somewhere.

Think the fact that we have to create a new account from scratch will put a lot of people off from moving over to EA. And also i think it would be good to post a community announcemnt of about the future of this forum on the main page as not all members visit the F1 forum.

Hi there,

I hope this forum could survive, even read-only, to lose it would be a real shame: there is a lot of useful information, links, even bugs that recur that could be recalled here, etc. etc.

Fingers crossed,
Nuv

I think as this forum has been here for years and it’s in the classic easy to follow and contribute threads format.  It appeals more to those who can and like  communication with other humans rather than posting for reaction sake.  I’ve been on the EA place a couple off times and every time I open I’m awarded with this and that nonsense.  I only made one post 🤷‍♂️

Having just made my first post on the new forum I'd say that it's significantly hampered by it seemingly not being possible to embed images or YouTube videos. To me this won't be as good both for general discussion and actually error reporting as a result. Yes you can add attachments and get little thumbnail type links to YouTube videos, but it's not a user-friendly.

I appreciate this was probably rather a change imposed by EA of course.

Hmmm, what about taking some Codemasters identity to that EA place? So we better all name our dudes CM_Something there, so we immediately can distinguish each other from all the EA pawns. CM_Schneehase sounds good - and seriously it has to, because ffs Schneehase is already taken there...

Edit: Problem being, I managed to edit my name in the EA account there, but I am unable to edit my user name on that board. Or it must be hidden somewhere. Guess lol i ll gonna give up on that EA **** before we even start with the new game...

This is the end of free speech on all topics related to F1 gming then.  EA loves to censor anything negative about their products.  It's a brutal format over on EA's platforms, and its heavily censored in their favor.   It's the beginning of the end for the F1 gaming series and fans/customers having a say.     What a shame.   Thanks Codies; it's been a fun ride but given the F1 22 announcement falling completely flat, now this forum ending and transitioning to EA it's honestly the beginning of the end.  I've seen enough from EA on Madden/NHL forums and yeah.... anything you have to say that doesn't fall in line with their protection of their own image just... disappears or gets people banned.  

Thanks for you passion for the sport and the series, it's been a fun ride, and a great ride that took an unfortunate detour last year and I feel we're all currently on a collision course with the walls, currently sliding through the gravel trap... but that wall impact is inevitable at this point with EA involved.

I feel you.

Its the end of linking youtube vids into our postings (PJTierney guides, anyone?), its the end of having a private PM conversation with the mods (<3 BarryBL), its most probably the end of the annual forum beta, and I am afraid it will be the end of the forum league / championships as well. Turning all this down does not feel right in this very moment, its more like they wanted to eradicate this grown community here at the CM forums, rather than trying to improve things for everyone. Cant help the feeling that someone has sold his very soul...

Man, I dunno. In any case, I will miss anyone around here, and what we had together 😢

Ok dev forums like this are becoming extinct.  And credit to cm as  one off this forums strengths is its unique in the fact providing your post isn’t abusive you could criticise the game and blame the devs for everything.  Without have some ban happy mod instantly deleting those threads and banning the poster.   And despite hardly ever getting a reply from cm staff,  I felt Barry or even the odd browsing dev would have read them and any constructive and valid criticism would atleast stuck in their mind.  
 

I remember when on FIFA’s forums: when posts about scripting and handicapping started gaining traction.   Posts on the subject were instantly deleted. And any member that posted any decent theory or evidence we’re banned.  One guy I saw posted the idea the game sliders changed during the game and posted in-depth how he tested it and despite being a long time contributor to the forum got a life time ban.

I got a life time ban from project cars forum for one post saying it could be argued the devs at worst have committed fraud. despite being a regular helpful fun awesome contributor like I am here😁

Alongside the exciting announcement of F1 22, we are leaving the Codemasters Forums and joining EA Answers! Whether you are looking for the latest F1 22 news, a league to join or new setups to find those vital tenths of a second, EA Answers is the new place to be!

See you all on track (and on EA Answers)

We are probably not too far off being in a situation where things such as these will affect forum users  Credit ratings  ,  free speech is under attack at present from all angles ........ the proles have had it too good for too long.

The whole woke cancel culture  pendulum is out of control and has swung way to far.  LBut I believe we the silent majority are starting the push back.    I remember When I was a kid. A saying.  Sticks and stones brake my bones. But names never hurt.  How people get mentally bent out off shape over someones use off words is just bizarre.

I don't think they probably do , it seems like it is just fashionable at the moment to use this as an excuse for getting out of doing the dishes. These kids are real savvy ; and it makes them centre stage which gets some likes don't forget............... as my nephew used to say "'LOOK AT ME UNCLE BINGO"!!!.

Very much the case. But the flipside is it harbours a toxic element. I bet there are some that can't wait.

I too will miss it, but it consumes energy at times. I'll hopefully continue to pay it forward over on EA but will reduce my input. There will be no pre-order, but I'm afraid it does rather depend on whether the multiplayer racing is of good quality, or if I miss it. The story mode this year was the most I've ever felt a pull to 'continue my story' in the career / My Team. I'll take a watching brief and balance it on the potential return of investment of time / money into the game.

I feel we've been spun with the patch updates to the game "being supported longer than ever" when the reality is "this product is sold as beta".

Sometimes change is good, sometimes it is not, like in this case. Oh well, not much one can do except not join or participate in the EA site.  Problems, solutions and when is the next update is the only important information that is really needed anyway.

Hey, @BarryBL! Did not see it coming and frankly, not very excited with the change.

Will you and the rest of the staff still hold your roles? Will we keep on seeing this amicable cartoon chap in this iconic red overalls on there? @PJTierney the same?

My circumstances aren't changing. I am primarily the Rally specialist, however I help out on F1 with screenshots, videos and other creative assets occasionally. I also (when I have some spare minutes) hop on to the forums to take a peek and occasionally say hello.

Proč? Kdo vlastně vydává F1 2022? Vydává F1 2022 Codemasters nebo EA? Pokud ea tak je hra neplatná a nelegální, protože, jak jsem zjistil z internetu, Codemasters má dohodu s vlastníkem práv na skutečnou F1 pro hru F1 2022 až do roku 2025.
