Anyone know what "truncated" means or how it got on this fitting?

Check out the top of the fitting window, the red writing. Says "truncated" in lower case.

Any ideas?

Fit you imported had longer name than Eve allows?

Edit: I just tried this and Eve simply truncates too long name on import without any additional hints like your "truncated". Mystery :)

quite simple really.

Truncated means cut off.

what happened is this, the fit was likely linked to you at the end of a long message in the chat window. The line limit of chat cut off the end of it. Have whomever link it again with nothing else on that line of chat.

Ah, very likely. Thanks.

Also there was a LOT of crap in the cargo too, that may have been to long a list.

What's ACTUALLY happening here is the fitting link system is using some long elaborate HTML type stuff underneath to contain all the data. It's probably not so much that the fitting was linked at the end of a sentence but that the fitting itself contained a lot of ****.

This was only ever known to carrier pilots because they carry boatloads of every drone known to man and their fitting would often get truncated like this.

It's being seen more often these days since CCP added ammo to be displayed on fittings.
