Capcom Unity will remove all forums and user content from May 6

The long-running Capcom official news and forums site Capcom Unity will be undergoing major changes on May 6 to keep with the times, and the biggest change is that there will no longer be support for User Pages, meaning all user-created content on the site’s forums will be completely wiped clean. Instead, user discussion will be migrated to Discord and other social media platforms, with the main Capcom Unity site focusing on news updates.

The Capcom Unity forums had individual communities for each series or games in particular, such as Okami, Dragon’s Dogma, Remember Me, Darkstalkers, and more. Of particular note is the Mega Man Legends 3 Devroom community, established in 2010 to gauge fan feedback for the game’s development process, as well as have fans participate in submitting ideas for mascot designs and Easter Eggs, among other things. All these messages, comments, and user-created content will be completely gone after May 6, as well as the main news pages themselves (though the latter will likely still be viewable via Wayback Machine).


APRIL 21, 2020 UPDATE: Forum spaces are now locked, and we have added a Download function to each user blog. Please see the “Estimated Timeline” section below.

UPDATE [4/21]: Forum spaces are now locked.

UPDATE [4/21]: We have added a Download function to each user blog. Log in and go to your own blog (capcom-unity.com/YOURUSERNAME/blog) and you’ll see a Download button on the top right section. This will generate an XML file of all your blog entries, which should make it easier for you to import to other blogging platforms.

I can speculate that they want to reduce their moderation expenses and also want to give direction to the feedback from the customers. So maybe they may move the software to discourse and keep things simple.
