Dear forum users,
First, let me apologize for this extensive forum downtime. As some of you know, we tried to remove the MySteinberg groups which we used to control the access to certain forums based on the product licenses you own.
This however did not work as expected and new issues appeared. We then decided to take the forum offline to completely remove all connections to MySteinberg while keeping all forum user accounts and posts.
While we were able to keep the forum content and accounts in general, the passwords and the avatars have to be renewed unfortunately.
Please use your nick name and request a new password ("I forgot my password") to gain access to your account again.
To compensate for the downtime and the lost passwords, we made some updates to the forum and enabled some additional features.
"Quick reply" is now possible, there is an additional skin for you to choose from, German customers can switch to German language ("Sie" or "Du") etc.
Then, there is the forum structure. Some forums have been merged and some have been removed due to no or low traffic (this affects the German part first and foremost). All the various "Lounges" "Made with" and "Foyers" have been removed in favour of one "Steinberg Lounge" for German and English languages. The posts should be in those forums now.
The "Welcome to Steinberg" forums have also been removed. Some of the most current posts have been moved into other forums related to the topic. If you really need one of the other older threads, they are not deleted yet. Send me a PM if you need one of those back!
Also, you do not have to bother with the languages too much anymore. There is now one English and one German parent forum instead of parent product forums always containing both languages.
Please allow yourself some time to get used to the changes and we hope that you like the revamped incarnation of the forum!
