Can you please make the mail and notification thingies a bit more... visible? Grey on black is hard to see. Orange on black was much better.

Thread Filtering

How about an option to "Hide Post from this user / corporation / alliance" ?

Maybe the list of hidden users / corps/ alliances is in the Forum Settings?

Maybe there is a check box at the top of the thread to enable/disable filtering?

How about a "hide posts from NPC Corps" option?

I think you would have very boring forums without people like me mindlessly throwing sand in everyone's face.

Although i wish i could auto ignore NPC posters too.

Just noticed that the timestamp was back on the date format instead of timeago. Thank you for swapping it back. The timeago works definitely better on the tooltip.

If you hover the counter of new posts, you cant see any longer how many new posts are there, its very annoying the moment it opens, you have no idea then how much history to open, or you should open the whole history and remember last logon time.

Thank you for adding the "DevBlog" link under the "EvE Universe" menu. I'm happy to have it back, and it is in an appropriate location now!

Geeting connection closed by server multiple times per day and sometimes cycling the browser helps, sometimes I need to cycle the tab only. Been behaving like this for about 4 days.

Edit: this only happens when I do a reply to a thread with or without quotes. Editing and just browsing or accessing mails/notifications work fine.

Made my signature today and noticed something a bit odd about the way characters are counted. It's counting characters in tags in the total amount.

My signature counts as 200 characters and I cannot add a 3rd link as a result. Would advice to limit to 250 visual characters if possible.

A "date created" section for threads when browsing would also be useful. Only have "last post" right now.

interesting thing about the date of birth, it brings some value back to 2003 characters who failed to join NPC corps.

(there's debate when those characters are sold, regarding their value, as their employment history shows nothing)



This is a bit outside of the box, but you're reducing the usefulness of the forums as an intel tool (by removing employment history). again, outside of the box, but a move the other way would include bounties or war dec functionality in the forum interface.

The notifications are simplified a bit much, imo, but I feel you. The new interface is easier to grope with a smartphone touch screen, and that's just getting with the times.

[totally neutral comment, but this burden is shifted to evewho.com/pilot/CCP_Rarara and logging in to the client.]



totally should add a tweet button esp. for dev posts. but also for general spammery because exposure


Hi,

I believe you're mixing up EVE Gate profiles and EVE Forum profiles. The EVE Gate profile still shows employment history while the EVE Forum profile shows more forum related information. Previously you were always taken straight to the EVE Gate profile.

I'll see if we can do something about notifications for phase 2.


EVE Gate profile and EVE Forum profile should really be linked if not merged...Please consider that for phase 2.

If you're using an ad blocker of any sort, it's likely that you have overly zealous filters that are removing the like button. This can happen if you're targeting social like buttons.

Solution: Disable your ad blocker for the EVE forums, or fix the filters.

subscribe to a thread

it'll ping you when someone posts a post

unfortunately it cannot discern between good and bad posts

(actually it can since it alerts you to every post made)

(all posts on these forums are bad)
Thanks for another bad post.

We must accommodate the idiocracy.
