Will Metropolis be supported 100% or will there be a new coin coming out. If there is a new coin coming out, in what type of wallet should your Eth be to get the new coin?

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. EWallets such as Coinbase are like banks -- a central organization has complete control over your money. You shouldn't put much money in EWallets.

Is there not a populated thread about this issue of the possibly upcoming fork of Ethereum? After all that would have a huge impact in the whole crypto world!

There will be no new coin for the metropolis hardfork if you are expecting to get the free airdrop token like bitcoincash and that was wrong at all. because the only fork that issued the token was the DAO hardfork.

To answer your second question, any wallet where you can access the private key is a safe place to hold a coin during a fork.  Just like Bitcoin Cash, don't keep it on an exchange or some other place where you don't control the private key.  I don't know if ETH is going to hard fork, or not ... but if it does, you theoretically don't have to do anything immediately.  You can just let your coins sit on the new block chain until a new fork wallet is developed, and claim them at any time in the future by importing your old etherium key.  I just printed off my BitCoin private keys, and kept them in my safe for whenever I want to claim the bitcoin cash.

Thank you. Makes perfect sense.

With less than 24 hours to go until the Hard Fork for Ethereum becomes active, core developer Gavin Wood has tweeted out he feels the fork should be postponed by two weeks. Fuzz testers are still finding bugs in the Byzantium upgrade and the number of nodes updated to a bugfree version of Ethereum clients is still very low.
It doens't look like the fork will be postponed, as doing so, so close before the fork happening, can lead to major issues itself. https://www.reddit.com/r/ethereum/comments/76d97i/fork_should_be_postponed_until_2_w_of_no_bugs_as/

I just think the hardfork already completed and the vitalik already made a tweet about the hardfork celebration and what already happened? You said that the hardfork already postponed but in another said vitalik said about the thing against your opinion and so which is true? This will need the more verification to determine does the hardfork already ended.
I just feel curious about that.

the hard fork is complete and everything happened smoothly, the amount of transactions was no much different than normal, those who dreamt of an airdrop of free money got disapointed. There was no much discussion about the hard fork, was a simple matter of upgrading the system to its own benefits and the community largely agreed on that, so no need for new coin or the division of the community into a new one.
