I have to put it mildly something to say about the "quality" of the forum section of the website.

1. the whole quote system is terrible! it makes every quote that's in it readable so the posts become HUGE and messy its challenging to say the least to reply on some posts with multiple quotes in it.
2. the forum itself leaves all quotes in it AND ad even a easy way to add more or make your own quotes, yet the system is limited to 5 quotes i had to edit posts a lot because of a error about the 5 quote limit.
3. i miss an my active topics section which pretty much shows all threads where you posted in.
4. i miss an my topics section where you see all threads you started yourself

fix
1. remove all previous quotes by changing them into ... accept the last one.
2. remove 5 quote limit i dont think it serves a porpose after fixing this.
3. add section where you can see all topics you posted in.
4. add section where all topics are listed that you started yourself

example except the last quote which ofc is the one i was replying on is needed everything else is as ALMOST ALWAYS useless and does not need to be in that quote but it is automaticly added without any restriction on length or previous quotes. so it should basicly look like it is below but to do that i need to cut the previous quotes. I never had this issue on other message boards because well they are better designed if you ask me What?

You got it exactly right (though my freighter was aggressed twice, the destruction by fleet was a 3rd aggression)

My point is, why does the victim get the aggression timer??

I believe it was originally put in place to stop the aggressor logging out, after having attacked someone (and the game mechanic became flawed)

I have yet to see how you can aggress anyone else in a freighter or pod...Roll


officially this was done to prevent people from logging off if they could not win the fight (used to happen a lot in capital fights)

aggression timer does not mean you aggressed someone it means you are in a combat situation and therefor have 15 min timer. it doesnt matter if you aggressed a player or NPC or a player or NPC aggressed you.

I hate to break it to you but you failed to fail properly.

Your post could be in EVE Technology and Research Center : Issues, Workarounds & Localization
but instead is in
EVE Forum Experiments.

EVE Technology and Research Center : Features & Ideas Discussion would also have worked too...

Other than that it could fix it (it could fix some problems), ty.
And make sure not to mix the business quotes with the other quoting system.
