Retiring Beam Legacy (1.0) frontend
We have permanently retired the Beam Legacy (1.0) frontend. We have surpassed the point where improvements in Beam 2 significantly outweigh Beam 1's stability, performance, and featureset combined, and recent changes to FTL and VODs make them incompatible with the old frontend.
To prevent user confusion and reduce our own confusion when dealing with tweets/support/troubleshooting, we will be resetting people's flags to default to the latest stable version of Beam and removing the option to go back in time.
I hope they put the hug back in so I can get cheap tracking my account of the following I'm close to 60,000 following people on beam
you got rid of the only working stable version of beam period, and the only one that actually looked good for something that looks like a high schooler made and put all the "cool" looking stuff on. Not to mention now unless a team puts hyperlinks for their members in the description you cannot get to their page without leaving the team page and searching for them.
Goodbye, old Beam!
You'll be missed?
It is a serious problem. It means "Do not use BEAM" to all Korean. All Korean users had to use legacy site only, because 2.0 does not support Korean character input. (Korean users have said this problem on the feedback page , but there is no response yet.) From today, Korean can not communicate on BEAM. nowallKoreanscannotenterspacesandpunctuationduringchatdoyouknowwhatImtalkingabout As a streamer, I have to say "You can not chat, but come to beam and watch my stream" to the user of another platform. This is NONSENSE. If there is not communication, what do we use BEAM for? What is BEAM Seoul server for?
I think, there was something you had to do before you removed the legacy site. Please fix the input bug before retire. Please help us. We love BEAM and we don't want to leave BEAM.
(And change of 'partner application requirements' makes me impatiently. It is too harsh to demand growth in an environment that can not grow.)
I am assuming the problems with reporting and contacting without needing to switch back to beam legacy will be fixed soon? Otherwise we will need legacy to use the contact function, as in the current default beam, we cannot select a topic which is required to send a contact, as well as still being unable to select the top several options for why one would send a report about another user. Trolling and harrassment being the top two I think.
