Dev blog: Introducing the new EVE Online Forums

The time has come to update our forum software, and over the course of the next month we'll be transitioning to using Discourse based forums for a more modern look and feel.

This means that over the course of the next month, these forums will be retired, and we'll start to use a new venue for official announcements and discussions.

Take a look at this dev blog for more information on the new forums, their functionality, and how to use them!

Feedback can be posted here, or over on the new forums!

I'll stick to these for now..

The new ones just look awful, cluttered, difficult to read and sort out visually.

Just about everyone using them has had to zoom out because of it.

I don't agree with doing away with the sub categories we have on here either, it'll just make things harder to find as good information is lost in the dross.

All in all, **** poor effort. My last accounts sub ran out around 72 hours ago, it's looking like my forum reading will be coming to an end as well which is a pity as I enjoyed browsing them.

What sub-categories do you feel are missing?

Speak up, and perhaps we can add them Smile

Skill Discussions is important but seems to be missing entirely. I did find the rest but only after checking 3 times :/

We now have a skill discussion section

Easy as pie!

Part of this whole process is working with the community to make the forums a more functional and streamlined place for discussions.

If you're on the fence about using them because there's things you don't like, dive into the feedback section and give us some pointers on what you'd like to see.

The idea is to build this new venue WITH the community, not FOR it. Big smile

It was hard to find Crime and Punishment when I was looking for it. Did eventually see where you'd hidden it (in a subfolder of General Discussion, one place I basically never go).

I support the New Order and CODE. alliance. www.minerbumping.com

Losing the ability to easily see corp and alliance affiliation is not an improvement.

The divisions between posts are much less clear than they were in the old forums - a neat trick since the old forums already have a bad case of grey-on-grey design.

At the moment everything's an eyebleeding soup of animated images but perhaps that will die down as time goes by and merely be slightly worse than now.

It's all a horrible mess of third-party Javascript. Yes, I'm a NoScript-using paranoid.

Can you please fix it so Internet Explorer 11 users can log on to the new forum. I press the confirm button having selected my character and nothing happens.

Missing topics Character bazaar. Is there going to be one seperate in the market place?

Thanks

I expect to get this post deleted or locked. So much for freedom of expression.

Something, something, better at mobile devices. You got me here. Been away for a week. Checking T3C thread on mobile. Reading something at old forum is PITA. We will whine at start, then we will adapt. Nothing breaking the game here.

I'm not saying that ain't a plus point, but also as far as I can tell, worse on non-mobile devices - like the computers we all presumably have to play EVE on.

Whole internet is going into mobile friendly you can't stop this trend.
Judging from what they post about new forums nothing will change. Official forum must have strict rules otherwise they may propablly be sued. I started adapting to reddit for few months, my brain even started to filter trash posts from there. It's a bad source but with better information flow.

I would really like to see the little blurb when you mouseover a topic title. Not sure why you would remove that. It's very useful.

How to switch off unecessary categories? I don't use 3/4 of them. Or subcategories?
Unlimited scrolling on the post? Good luck with threadnaughts...
Visited new forum feedback category and went back here, very user unfriendly.

All of them, it's much neater having lots of small links divided in sub categories.
If I click Eve forums right now I can see about 15-25 sub categories.
I read through the lists and know where I want to go.

I went to new forums and 4 take up the entire page and they're just everything mixed together.
How am I supposed to know where anything is.

Cannot login to new forums. Just gets stuck at character confirmation page. Click the character and "Confirm", nothing happens.

I'm not trying to affect the whole internet by posting here. I'm trying to affect the EVE forums, where - unlike the rest of the Web - we know essentially everyone reading them has access to a non-mobile device with a large screen.

Of course, I don't expect it to make a difference, but it would be senseless not to give feedback.

Nice news. Is a good oportunity to create the Hispanic subforum. We got a Hispanic aliance in the game, a hispanic podcast, and a huge amound of new hispanic players. Wee need some official way to comunicate and grow.

Please add a Wet-Grave sub forum so you have one place to move the rage quit threads. It would be nice to have one place to where we can look back at those people who fail to adapt to EVE.

It's not safe out here. It's wondrous, with treasures to satiate desires both subtle and gross. But it's not for the timid.

Please add the EVE Universe section/links we have here to the new forums. Including EVE Gate! Alays nice to have everything with just one login and to have access to calendar and evemail via the website. Thank you!
