Ok, I will admit that it's nice to be able to look up a poster and see that they're posting with a character that's only 13 days old telling me that they are either a sock puppet, newbie, or paid shill without having to log into the game.



Don't dismiss such character so easily, there may be reasons for this. I'm also posting here with a character i don't use ingame - i don't want to expose my "game" character cause it could ruin business Smile


Ergo you are a sock puppet. Since you are unwilling to put your "expose your 'game' character" don't be surprised when your credibility as well as your motivation is questioned.

Forums look fine to me, Im sure theres functionality that would be nice to have but not worthy of some of the outcries on here. Its a forum, nothing more.

eve gate is kinda stupid... i enjoyed never using it but now i kinda have to just to use forum.



CCPs new corporate practice is to FORCE you to use things you dont really want.

Just an FYI.


They aren't forcing at all, you can play EvE all you want and don't have to use EvE Gate at all.

I like the new option to see your skill queue while logged in.
I also like the new and sleeker look - with a search option! Big smile

Now we just need an option tho change skills without having to log into EVE. Blink

They could be a bit faster and all the "assets" make that it a bit cluttered, but they are ok I guess.

Like the look, like the new features, hate the high usage of javascript(really? gotta use JS just to pick a link thread to read?), hate the lack of signatures worth looking at, and really miss the pics. SOME of those pics were informative, and the rest were funny(usually).

Sorry, can't +1 til they forums work right in the IGB, and thats not gonna happen with all this javascript in here.

Seems to function in my smartphone browser quite well, even moves the screen as I type with one thumb. No complaints with function currently but then I try not to get fancy anyways when on a phone which is what I read the forums on 90% of the time anyways.

I like the new forum too.

It's integrated into the EVE Gate and has (in my opinion) a fresh and modern, but still tidy style.

I hate to admit that I do like the new forums.

There are a coupe things I would change such as the width but hopefully in time (like 5 years) that might happen :)

You can change the background in your EVE Gate profile settings. There are several to chose from (personally I use the Amarr one, of course; 'cause I need all my slaves to remember that their place in my life is in the dust (514; I mean, who on Earth pays for their mercenaries? They bloody well have to do as I say, no?).

Unfortunately that feature is still "broken" and will reset once you close the forum (session cookie only? Running IE9 here). You have to get back to the preferences and apply them each visit if you insist on your background picture (or keep at least one session open at all times).

Looking for more thoughts? Follow me on Twitter.

Hmmm, strange. It works fine for me. Then again, I am using Chrome and I did not test this on Firefox. However, our web QA does test this on Firefox/Chrome/IE, so it may be a browser/cookie/cache setting.

the new forums are WAY better than that antiquated dinosaur from 1902 we've been using.

I've tested this will three difference browsers and they all behave the same. Only problem I had initially was if I changed my background while I was logged into the forum, it didn't apply or remember during session changes. I had to actually log out of the forum and back in to keep the background across session changes.
