Title: UGX-Mods Forum Open Beta is LIVE! and GDPR ready
Post by: Delta on May 24, 2018, 11:16:30 pm

Hello community,

Today is an exciting day for us. We have finally released our new UGX-Mods Forum as Open Beta to everyone.

Simply head over to ( to get started - be sure to give us feedback (see below) so that we can improve it before it goes live on our main domain (production).

Please note: Your user settings won't be carried over, so beta and non beta (production) won't share the same settings.
This also effects some forum settings and statistics like total forum user count and such.

Other than that, Beta and Production share the same data and you are free to use Beta as long the Open Beta goes.

You can also share beta links, once we move out we simply redirect the links to the correct site (

Before we dive into the major changes, let's talk about you and your privacy first!

If you have any GDPR related concerns, simply use ( which has all changes to comply with GDPR already.
We most likey will refine our Privacy Policy further and require your consent soon again - we are no experts ;)

We evaluate your feedback and put it into our
development roadmap ( Hopefully you are excited with the new forum and everything works out smoothly.
That would mean that production would be soon ready for the new forum theme.

It has been a long journey for me (Delta) and I'm personally very excited to share with everyone my work (
