LOL. CCP literally took the worst off the shelf forum they could find and then they made it even shittier by customizing it. They'd be better off scrapping it and replacing it with something that actually works and has all those features built in.

Eve is like an addiction; you can't quit it until it quits you. Also, iderno

Smartphone? What's a smartphone? I'm the only thing called "smart" around my precincts. Certainly, no inanimate object is called "smart" around me. You? You have a thing that's smarter than you? It's summer. If you want "layout" go layout by a pool and turn your greenish white skin a little tan. I hear the vitamin D works well with the brain...smartphone.

Are you totally indoctrinated YET?

You're calling into the wilderness. The developers responsible for this no longer work for CCP. As such their notes went missing (together with the notes for the mystery code) and are now seen as legacy code. No-one at CCP has a clue how to or are afraid they break stuff when doing updates.

Case in point: top right search function (which I have reported several times) is for me on Safari when typed in is a #eeeeee font color on a #ffffff background, making it near impossible to read. Is a simple CSS fix changing #EEE into #000.

But hey, ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Heh mine now has quite the vocabulary of Anglo-Saxon expletives in the dictionary.

In the beginning there was nothing, which exploded.

The open source version of the forums are perfectly capable of this. Yet they did not listen when people told them their approach was flawed https://oldforums.eveonline.com/?a=topic&threadID=1505227&page=3#70 and now they can't upgrade, as expected.

Shhhh, you folks are going to hurt the feelings of the .025 devs that are still assigned to work on the forums.

Do you want Reddit?
Because this is how you get Reddit.

Forums are fine. This ain't Twatter, Dreddit, or Inyourfacebook.

Classic Forums are still great ways to communicate and they can be properly moderated in fair ways. The other choices of social media are seriously lacking.

We've turned our worst traits into chic Social Applications.

We're actually considering swapping this forum software out for Discourse.

We're already using it for the EVE Valkyrie Forums

Go take a look at the layout and see if you like it. Currently working on a proposal and list of requirements for it over the summer Smile

Font is the same as Star Citizen is using on their forums? Its harder to read.
OMG, White on bright yellow text. Lol

Where are the dank threads in Out of Fighter section? There is no such section? Outrageous!

Please do. I only ever look at these forums on a mobile and it is awful.

Would like color theme choices, white-on-black strains my eyes over long periods. Not just black text on white, either: that's nearly the same problem in the opposite direction. Lower contrast choices.

I like Valk forums built in statistics and poll features :)

External client for EVE mail, next please? Unlimited message storage... tables... search....
