With the launch of CG Cookie SIX happening this Wednesday I wanted to also let you know that these forums will be switched into Read Only Mode.
Wait but why?!
I'm happy to say that CG Cookie SIX includes a dedicated Community feature for discussions. This means that all the best parts of these forums are now going to be integrated directly into the main site.
This has been a long-time wish of many of you and all of us on the CG Cookie Crew. Up until now the community discussions have always been a bit detached from the rest of the Cookie experience. Not anymore.
What about existing discussions and sketchbooks?
Initially we are not migrating the existing forum topics to the new system. It is our hope to do that in the coming weeks but this is very dependent on some technical obstacles being resolved. It's possible that this won't happen.
At launch, this Wednesday, we will have a clean slate. This will then be a good time to create a new sketch/polybook via our dramatically improved Gallery and Projects feature! You can read more about in @wesburke's earlier preview:
Can I still access the forums for reference?
Yes! For a little while.
We will keep these forums online, in read-only mode, for at least a month or so, such that you can review your discussions and find anything you need. Ultimately these forums will be removed, but not until the new community discussions are humming along.
Stay tuned and get ready to check out the new system in SIX!
