We were discussing about recruiment and background checking for recruits, and we came up with idea that if you could hide npc corps from histrory tab , that make checking employment history soo much easier.

How about a background color for the NPC Corps? that way you can see get an idea of how long they took off between corps, or breaks from EVE, or could just skip the Blue Background tabs (or whatever color)

I'd definitely be in favor of this. I've done dozens and dozens of these over the last year and it was always painful.

+1 for background color, but not for hiding NPC corps from history. It's a good change that would prolly take no more than about half a day to implement and test thoroughly ^^.

I'm not sure how feasible this is - but on the 'employment history' tab, as well as/instead of showing the NPC corps in a highlit colour, have a 'hide NPC corps' tickbox, so you can

For posting an idea into F&I: come up with idea, try and think how people could abuse this, try to fix your idea - loop the process until you can't see how it could be abused, then post to the forums to let us figure out how to abuse it..... If your idea can be abused, it [u]WILL[/u] be.

+1 for both ideas - color background-coded and tick-box to hide NPC corps!

Color all the things - and then hide them.

Seriously though, this could be a reasonable QoL improvement, so +1 from me.

Maybe they could make a timeline graphic as well, using your new color coded corps.

+1 for hide npc corps. also employment history should be cleared once a toon is brought off the character bazaar as its employment history is voided as its under new ownership or at least make a note on the employment history list that the toon is under new ownership

This is actually a sound idea.

I can't see any reason why it would affect balance in the game in any way it doesn't already exist (AKA intel being openly available, etc.) I especially like the color-coding option, makes it much easier to differentiate NPC/player corps visually.

+1

TL;DR If you didn't read the entire post perhaps you're probably ADHD. (seek help)

What about a graphical representation in form of a stacked bar diagram, where each section is clickable and gives you the information window of the respective corp.

Different backgrounds for the 3 different corp types could also make a great difference in easier readability.

My ridicule, heavy criticism and general pale outlook about your or CCP's ideas is nothing but an encouragement to prove me wrong. Give it a try.
