Hello everyone, and welcome to the new Roll20 forums! We've completely re-written them from the ground up to provide a better, more integrated experience. If you've ever run into forum login issue, the inability to PM someone, or just been frustrated with the 2 or 3 second login time, all of those problems should be solved. Let me break down exactly what's changed: New Forums The new forums themselves are integrated directly into the core Roll20 application. They should seem very familiar; we haven't really changed the categories. We've simplified the layout and design to bring it more in-line with the rest of Roll20, and we've also switched to a WYSIWYG editor that should feel very familiar to you if you've been using the new Character features. We intend to start using this editor throughout Roll20 soon. There are undoubtedly going to be bugs, and there are still a few minor features missing (for example, we can't sticky posts yet...), but overall we're very excited at this major improvement! Campaign Forums In addition to the general public forums, this new update brings a much-needed feature to Roll20 in the form of Campaign Forums. Basically, every campaign that you create in Roll20 now has its own special mini-forum where you can post topics and communicate with your players outside of the game. This replaces the older campaign comments feature (any campaign comments have been imported into a thread on your new campaign forum called "Old Comments"). When you post on the campaign forum, all of your players are notified so they can read the post and keep up-to-date on the campaign. We think this is a great way to keep your players informed and engaged outside of your weekly session. You can use it to let them know about a time change, post recaps of previous sessions, and even do simple play-by-post style encounters in-between sessions. Let us know if this feature is useful to you and what we can do to improve it going forward! Private Messaging The old forum software did feature a private messaging system, but it was really outside the scope of the main Roll20 app and had several issues. We've now introduced a new private messaging system directly into the core Roll20 app. You can view your private messages inbox by clicking on the account drop down in the top-right of your screen in the black bar. In addition, you'll now receive an email and an on-site notification whenever you receive a new PM. To send a PM, just go to the profile of anyone on Roll20 (for example, by clicking their name in a forum post), and then click the new "Send Private Message" link under their profile picture. Other Miscellaneous Updates There is now a "Leave Campaign" button on the Campaign Details page, so players can choose to leave campaigns without requiring the GM to kick them. We're excited about these new developments, and we can't wait to hear your feedback on how you're using them! Thanks!
