In the recent weeks, I've noticed a steady improvement in CCP's direction.

Take a look at the General Discussion index and see the swarm of blue and red pins. CCP are active again, and are both trolling and answering community questions. Even random ones which pop up in inconsequential threads.
The "Answer all questions" thread has been admitted as a failure. Sad, but pretty ballsy.
New, shiny forums with SSL encryption all over, even though it results in higher usage of CCP's forum server/networking. No images, yet, but there's no backdoor open.
The recent patch for Incarna which increased CQ performance yet again and improved the lighting. It should have been released this way, but CCP are fixing instead of adding broken content endlessly.
A Winter expansion aimed at fixing EVE's "end game", 0.0. Constructed almost entirely out of forum feedback, too.
Shiny nebulae, establishments (Actual Incarna!? As promised!?), the rest of the CQs, super-cap balancing, an eventual hybrid balance and hinting at a new cyno effect (again Blink)

So, what have CCP done wrong recently? Not much. The bitterness and cynicism are just leftovers from Incarna's release.
I, for one, am thinking that CCP is trying to regain the community's trust, and is doing it rather well.
We will all "wait and see", and there will be those who always have something to complain about, but I think CCP is improving.

I think the devs are on a mission to have a Blue or Red Flag on every post on page one Big smile

Will this thread get one?

Also i agree with the sentiment, the recent amount of info coming from CCP is great.

It's nice that they are giving some feedback and implying that they are listening but we are still very much needing to see some action put behind any promises that might be made.

Indeed time will tell, but I wish to encourage CCP to continue to play an active role in the community discussions. It's something that has been sorely lacking going all the way back to the T20 blueprint incident.

While it is a promising display, the winter expansion will ultimately show if this display manifests or just fizzles out.

Perhaps Hilmar is on holiday and they are having fun again before he comes back and they have to spend all day chanting "GREED IS GOOD", "VAMPIRES CANNOT FAIL", "HILMAR IS NEVER WRONG" outside his office whilst he admires his reflection in the wall to wall mirror I am sure he has in his office.

It happens to be Spitfire's goal for the day tbh. Which is why I will troll him by posting without my badge appearing on the index page :D

Not to mention the recent good posting from t0rtifrans, letting us know that ship spinning will be back with CQ only a click away, AND the return of the old module icons.

I guess it's stupid to praise them for putting things back into the game that they deliberately removed for no good reason, but it's better than gold ammo and monocles.

Yes it's good, and it does improve the mood, but we've seen it before, and after a little while it fades away...

Trolling is not prohibited in these forums and posts of this nature are disruptive and do not contribute to the sense of community we want for our forums. Shame on you.

It looks good, but it's a long way to go for CCP to get where they've been 2 years ago, where it was possible to show friends how cool the DEVs and GMs of your game are...

i hope the best.

Keep in mind this is a new forums. The devs are probably trying to get a bunch of posts in to get comfortable with the new layout, features, etc.
