Another good thing:

James 315 has another outlet for his long-winded posts, and we don't have to see them in GD anymore.

That alone is cause for celebration.

No, it just means I'll have to work twice as hard writing long-winded posts for BOTH outlets! Smile

So with obvious skepticism, I decided you know what, #yolo and went to read the articles of themittani.com

What did I find? Refreshingly well written accounts of Eve news, politics, and hilarity that are sorely lacking on other unnamed Eve News websites. I am very impressed with the layout of the site, and if this is any indication of what is to come, I will definitely be reading this website daily. I especially am happy that you have got the great savior of highsec himself, James315 writing for you. Perhaps try to bring in a "dotBros" or "SoCo" writer to appease those who cry of CFC bias. Of course, that is all a matter of people volunteering to do it, but I would hope that at least one person from those blocks could put a few words in an article from time to time (as long as you let Endie edit it).

I think I rather stay with EVE-O, terrible as it may be. The amount of circlejerk on themittani.com has already reached epic proportions after a single day.

Ask and it shall be given unto you! Broski and Black Legion member Hilmar Keller just wrote an exceptionally good article on the measures and counter-measures BL are using to fight effectively in off-timezone gangs and the success they've had against Goonswarm and the CFC in doing so.

Although we have a stack of good content waiting to go out, and I'd kinda intended to wait a little for another set-piece article, I just had to post it this morning. Partly because I enjoyed it so much and partly to try to allay peoples' fears over whether we'd block or edit stuff showing the "other side" from goons winning: http://themittani.com/news/volley-all-fcs-pocketful-shells

We also have a member of Nulli Secunda who has expressed a pretty credible interest in writing something for us: he's a good poster so I hope something comes of that.

For those who think the site is biased for lack of a particular perspective, why not offer to submit some content? Smile


This is really good advice. So far Black Legion have submitted an article which is very contrary to what the CFC is and flames the crap out of us.

So far, this site is achieving it's goals. Allowing for multiple points of view.

Layouts awesome, most articles are written very nicely and easy to understand even for non-native english speakers.

But still I will only give it 6/10 because the bad articles really shines. A few of them are very obvious and bad because of the obvious parting with goonswarm and hating against their sworn enemy -A-.

But I like it and will probably check it out more. :)

Persuade a literate and persuasive AAA member to send me an update on the progress of the southern war and I will leap at the chance to post it.

Dsan left, so I guess we won't be seeing anything from -A-'s point of view any time soon.

There are thousands of people in AAA and their bloc: I am certain that amongst those are some good posters.

Free Dsan.

Seriously, are there no literate -A- members capable of public relations? Sad

It's beautifully done.. but for some reason I'm lagging on it.


Cool website though, easily forgivable with a name like that if the content is top notch.

First piece I read was terribly opinionated - but I was pleasantly surprised by the rest of the articles. I look forward to more quality articles in the future.

I am genuinely impressed by the level of discourse at this site, not just in the articles themselves, but in the comments. I particularly enjoyed reading the commentary to the K-6 battle report from both sides, which was constructive and respectful instead of the chimpanzee poo flinging in the comments (and, for that matter, articles) on that other EVE news site.

After reading Eve News24 and Riverini's circle jerk propoganda article's in which he is the star of the world and everyone else is an idiot, Mittani actually comes off sounding professional, honest and accurate by comparison.

I found most of the articles to be very well balanced and actually useful since it actually provided news rather the what News24 gave us, a wall of hidden meanings and insults with unverfied and usually completetly inaccurate information. Still Mittani is aragont and it shows in his totalitarian writing in which he speaks as if every opinion he has is a fact in gods eyes. Being an aragont A-hole myself I have to assume that he is aragont for the same reason I am, BIG package. Its both a curse and a blessing.

Good site all around, thanks for the News24 replacement!

The reality of Eve is that, if you don't love it like it is today, you should probobly go ahead and unsub.

This is the one thing that we pushed from the start. How to be superior to EN24? Actually be a news site. Job done.
