Hello forum participants,

Today we want you about important changes in ESU Support forum.
Since the summer we are working on a massive expansion of the Forum with the aim, in addition to all other ECoS ESU care products and our English-speaking customers better access to this platform to allow them.

For this reason, the ESU Support Forum in the future, both visually and functionally to the homepage ESU integrated.

The move is in accordance with the holidays, take place on 27.12.2008. On this day, we will present the forum in the form of well-known off.

All contributions PMs, avatars, signatures and personal settings when you move naturally preserved.
However, we need you to move your support to ask: Since we have reasons of data protection your old password does not know, we need each user a new (temporary) password assigned.
They are therefore on 27.12.2008 an automatically generated e-mail our system with this password. Using this password, you can then support the new forum with the usual user login name.

After a brief review of your previously saved data can be as usual at holding forums to participate. We ask you, your personal data to carefully examine and possibly to add: We want all participants in our forums customer database to communicate with you easier. Privacy is important to us to be taken very seriously: Your data will not be disclosed to third parties nor will you unsolicited advertising from us.
A key objective in the redesign of the forum is an improvement of the service through faster responses to your questions. These are usually more ESU employees give answers in this forum. However, each user a number ESU customers to obtain the response times as well Complaints to be shortened.

We hope that the new forum in the normal way with your contributions enrich. We are proud of the quality and the high level of your contributions.
All questions about the forums extension, you can obviously discuss here.
Mit freundlichen Grüßen

Ihr ESU Support Team


This seems to be a notice that they are improving the ECoS user forum to increase support for the English language community. This happens to day so it will be interesting to see what the developments are?

I saw that but thought that was allyou could see as an unregistered user. I thought that to see the entire forum you would have to have signed in.

I was able to get in. I've changed my password to something more memorable and the Forum knows it's me because it has my user name and says welcome back in German.... and everything else is in German too. I didn't bother looking for any forum topics.

It was all a cunning plan by ESU to get rid of the English speakers!!!!


Knowing how these things work (or, more usually, don't work!), it might have taken them longer than they intended to set it all up and get your usernames and passwords registered/transferrred. I would suggest patience and perseverance - keep trying periodically until something breaks.

*** I copied the password from my email, logged onto the ESU website, clicked on the english flag, added my name and password to the boxes at the top of the ESU home page and was taken right to the form to change password. did that and all is good first time with no problem - the only "error" to me as an english speaker was that the confirmation screen said in German "They have successfully changed password".

I can get in alright and it says welcome back but there is no sign of how to access the forums, merely 2 subjects all in german. When using the search option no subjects can be found. Maybe teutonic efficiency is not what it seems.

That was exactly my experience. I cut and pasted from the email because I didn't trust myself / couldn't be bothered to get all those unusual characters right.

That was exactly what I did too but it wouldn't let me in. The website kept adding another password after I had pasted the copied new password.

So Deutsch only for the moment.

Tried my old sign in details.
It just tells me that someone already has that username and won't let me in.

This may be a silly question, but where do you log in.
All I see is in top right corner. I put user name and password, there is only a choice of REGISTER or FORGOTTEN PASSWORD.
I click register, I get the registration form every time.
One can only fill it in so many times before it gets boring.
