I want drama, I want tears, I want corp members to have the ability to vote and remove/replace both CEO's & Directors if need be. MUHAHAHHAHAHTwisted

I have a hunch that a general 'fix roles' request is not a little thing.Blink Anyway, here's some (hopefully little) things from a EVE University director point of view. We have about 2000 members. I'm at work at the moment so I can't check things in game.

Roles can be grantable, so that non-directors can grant them, but not titles. Make titles grantable.

Some roles need splitting. Just as one example, the Personnel Manager role - as well as deal with corporation applications like you would expect - lets you both award medals AND create medals. This makes no sense.

The hangar divisions in the View Member window are not renamed to their actual names, but instead still show Division 1 etc. The same is true of many places where the hangar divisions are listed in the Corporation window. If a division has a specific name, it should have that name everywhere.

In the Corp panel, Member tab (Role Management, Task Management, etc) panes, in some views you can double click on a member to Show Info (and right-click to bring up their context menu) and some you can't. Please standardize so that I can always right-click them for the usual menu.

You can currently only view a list of corp member/title actions carried out by searching for a specific member, and viewing their personal history. It would be extremely useful to have a History tab so that a CEO can view all recent activity from directors & and members with grantable roles, which should be easily sortable by date/person/etc.

Please allow us to delete, and edit the text, on medals.


PS: I actually don't have a big problem with the roles/permissions interface & mechanic. It's not intuitive, but then there are a lot of things in EVE that aren't intuitive. There are definitely some small (and big) issues that need ironing out.

One thing that would solve many issues is a further permissions layer on each role: let's take Communications Officer as an example. This is admittedly not a little thing. P This should have three layers of permissions, names can be changed:

  • Self - allows you to create, edit & delete your own corp calendar events, but not edit or delete anyone else's
  • Moderate - allows you to create, edit & delete your own corp calendar events, and edit other people's
  • Full Control - allows to full control over all corp calendar events.

This permissions pattern should be extended to things like Factory Manager (you can only start and finish your own corp jobs), Config Starbase Equipment (you can only put up and take down your own POS), and so on.

Thanks for the feedback!
Loads of little things to be grabbed from here, unfortunately we are not tackling the role management for now.

Some little things we were thinking of doing to keep busy:

Inline editing of corp hanger name in the inventory
same for wallet divisions
tweaking the office renting tab a bit

We might move the corp finder into People and Places, because that's the place to go to find things :)

Small things like that... keep 'em coming!

The launcher should download and apply new patches without having to restart it.

Wait, what was the thread topic again?

From a recruitment point of view it would be useful if the mail which is automatically sent when an application is rejected could be edited, in the same way the automatic mail sent on acceptance can be edited.

In the same vein now we can directly invite people without them first putting in an application it would be nice to be able to edit the error message which comes up when an applicant tries to put in an application and membership applications are turned off. at the moment it says the corp is not accepting new members, while it may be that they are but they have to invite you first.

How about the ability for players to write a note against their name that other corp mates can read,so you can say leave a list of alt names that you have in corp.

Its a headache keeping track of all the alts!

Can we get a hierarchy view for the corp, like we have for fleets, where each "wing" or "squad" (call it division and department?) can be defined by the CEO with roles/permissions and have the ability to drag and drop corp members into them?

So, you're a bounty hunter. No, that ain't it at all. Then what are you? I'm a bounty hunter.

The ability to hand out Medals to pilots in other corporations - with the ability of recipient to of course accept/decline the medal to prevent **** medals left and right (obviously the cost is still paid by the issuer regardless if the pilot accepts it or not).

Interesting way to tackle the complexity of the beast that is a large corporation when looking at the big picture.

But now, little things :)

basically everything i've ever thought was wrong with the corp interface isn't a little thing....

though i do wonder, has it been the same since launch, or has it been touched before?

it's been mostly the same for as long as i've played at least.

In a few moments you will have an experience that will seem completely real. It will be the result of your subconscious fears transformed to your conscious awareness.

If you're not tackling roles then don't waste your time on it.

Low-hanging fruit is not something that applies to the corp system. It's awful and needs to be re-built.

A little thing:

Would be nice to have a little icon in corp chat (NPC corps excluded) with people's status:

>Available to chat
>Wife Aggro

Would prevent me from having passionate monologues (about how the hyperion lost 2 turret slots or how torps used to hit 50km away back in 2008)

While I understand there are little things to be done, surely it would be better to look at the little things after the big things are addressed. Corporations have a lot of big, historic issues which need to be fixed, and fixing them is likely to stomp all over most of the little things you'd be looking at now.
