DOTLAN is a truly amazing resource.

Wollari must be an extremely intelligent, ethical and moral person of the first caliber. This was quoted earlier, but it can't be said enough:

"Wollari always listened to the EVE Community while developing DOTLAN, sometimes he received only minor requests, sometimes he was asked for completely new modules (which got implemented). He considers listening to the users, and actually using the application himself, an important part in the development process and advises new developers to use their own tools during development."

An excellent tool, the jump planner and navigation is excellent stuff. Excellent enough to entrust my ships with.

Wollari is a top chap and his maps are fabulous. I just wish he'd finish filling in all the moon goo and not cave in to the moaners hehe

Much respect that man.

See CCP - I think you should have come out with stuff like this - but there is SO much you SHOULD have done .....

I am aware of my own ignorance and have checked my emotional quotient - thanks for asking

Like so many great ideas - DotLan seems so obvious that you can't really believe that we could live without it. It is simply brilliant.

Thankyou Wollari for a top notch service. And one of the most amazing things about Dotlan is that its even possible to do this in the first place. CCP makes this data available specifically so players can do this kind of stuff. Brilliant.

DOTLAN = win!

Star Wars: the Old Republic may not be EVE. But I'll take the sound of dual blaster-pistols over "NURVV CLAOKING NAOW!!!11oneone!!" any day of the week.

Could you make it so the site only loads up 3/4 of the time, then lags out as you find your location and more mouse clicks Shift Mosue click, So it's more in line with eve. It;'s far to easy to use.

Very good choice for the second spotlight!

Thanks a lot, Wollari, for one of the most awesome tools for EVE players. You have come a very long way, I can still remember when DOTLAN started. Keep up the good work!
