Why do I have to dig through the entire topic to find a Dev/GM post?

And that is the issue, finding the first dev post in a given thread. CCP, can you give us a way to do that? Like maybe clicking on the blue dev tag on the thread of interest in the topic list?


not me, I don't work on web stuff.. but I was talking to one of the web guys yesterday and pointed this out to him Smile


SMBS

what web guys?
last thing anyone bothered to tell us was they all got **** canned

if there's actually web developers working for you guys as we speak, CCP has some serious explaining to do as to why the forums are STILL such a sloppy mass of bugs and coding errors

how can they fix the site when the above first line of code breaks the page?
how do you test things when every browser has to guess what you intend???

It's even harder to find CSM posts Sad

A war that would’ve involved 20,000 players, 75% of nullsec space, and hundreds of supercapitals was halted not by diplomacy, but by a game mechanic so dreadful that those who have experienced it previously have no desire to do so again. - Fix POS & SOV

Proof that webdevs = worst devs

Webdevs obviously don't use (or even test?) the software the supposedly work on. Otherwise they'd know they suck without other devs who actually DO use the software having to tell them.

tell him to add a message if there is no dev message after when we put our mouse on it ; if there's one it says it, but if there's none nothing happen. i though it was a bug at first, before seeing it was the last dev message

Most standard forums the number of replies is a link and it opens a small window with a list of the people that have replied. When you click on their name it brings up their responses in that thread.

EVE is becoming shallow and puerile; it will satisfy neither the veteran nor the "WoW" type crowd in the transition.

This is about 20th thread about this issue so don't put your hopes up about getting a fix. They prolly still think it works fine.

Would be nice to see one web guy here in forums now and then too asking "how am I doing?" or at least reading the wonderful free feedback what we are providing.

I do understand that sometimes we customers may be tiny bit stupid and unqualified to rate products which we're using, but still our opinion as combined pile of whine should override the ignorance of one superior being...

Example:
Customers go "fix the forums" times 1000
Superior being drinks coffee and plays skyrim while there obviously is no problem.

I like the forum software, actually. All software will have bugs that are eventually removed as new functionality is being added.

Is this forum software custom-made from scratch or did they hack one of the available packages on the market?

The little dev tag on the post when you are scrolling down the list of threads should take you to the first Dev post. Just my thoughts. I don't mind terribly hunting for it if i only have to read like 1-2 pages of posts to get to it, but anything more than that i get frustrated.
