Hi everyone, it’s me again!

Today I wanted to share some of my happiness with you all Smile

[img]http://i.imgur.com/ILj0SqJ.jpg[/img]

Back when I was a player I always found it difficult to keep a track of all the things that CSM delegates are posting. Especially the important things! So this was one of the changes I really wanted to implement since I started working with the project.

After looking at various formats and designs, I’ve decided to go with the one that is already familiar to EVE players – now.eveonline.com

But instead of posting some SIKRITS on the CSM one, I am gathering all of the posts (that I can find Roll ) from CSM delegates, this includes blogs, twitter, forums feed, youtube and reddit, then I hand-pick the most relevant to the CSM things and publish a link to it to our new and shiny portal.

It’s up and available to everyone at csm.eveonline.com you can also find a link to it through the Community portal by clicking CSM News:

Since my definition of relevance can vary from that of yours, here is a link with all of the info available regarding CSMX’s posting habits that you can review at your own pace Smile

Please feel free to leave your suggestions regarding the portal in this thread. You can also throw ideas and bug reports at me via twitter, email (leeloo@ccpgames.com) or though the in-game mail.

UPD: As some of you have questioned my design skills, here is the same information in a spreadsheet.
UPD2: Design was updated. Huge thanks to Shyaltii <3

That is an absolutely awesome idea...

...but does the layout have to be so bad?

The bland blue coloring looks very unfinished too.

Just give me (us) a chronological list, please.

(as a side note, even https://www.themittani.com/ changed their design again because that crazy tiling is something nobody can read)

Such list is not a thing I am afraid, maybe some coding people could pull all the posts via RSS and produce such list? Not sure.

Design suggestions are appreciated and I will try to implement some/most of them. Ability to click on pictures and titles was added today as an example.

This is great, thank you P

I like that you can click user #tags and filter just to one person. This is probably just a wierd request but sometimes I prefer just a grid layout to do a major chunk of reading. If it's possible to add a customisable view with just a list (date/username/topic/other tags) at some point that would be awesome, but if it's a niche request that'll hardly be used nws.

The tile layout looks similar to how TMC looked after they fiddled with it to optimise it for mobile devices, which for some reason prompted loads of complaints (dunno what they were all carrying on about cos I really only use a PC). It might be worth making the tiles a uniform size if people make the same complaint.

It'd be really handy if the big news sites (en24/TMC/CZ/SR - and possibly reddit) adding a one click link to this site for visibility. I know it's not your job to tell them how to lay out their sites, but hopefully they'll pick it up. Also Total Eve! - looks to have a CSM feed but this is better.

I like this idea.
Just so everybody is on the same page, It was my idea for CCP to get a tumblr long before they even considered using it as a platform for "news".
