Seriously, it's been 7 years.

What the heck?
Like, this is the most blatant and obvious banner for how CCP operates and what they expect from subscribers.

Doesn't this stand out to anyone at CCP?
This is one of the first things new players see.....? Shocked

Is there a CSM I can vote for who's entire platform is to open the door?
I vote for the "Open the damn door party".

I vote for 'delete CQ entirely', as will the majority of the other f&id posters.

I do want a revisit to WiS. However! New players shouldn't see a feature like CQ. It's misleading and a disappointment.

That door is hiding all of star citizens test servers.
CCP can't have you looking in there.

When you don't know the difference between there, their, and they're, you come across as being so uneducated that your viewpoint can be safely dismissed. The literate is unlikely to learn much from the illiterate.

It took 10 years to add a "loot all" button... I'd not complain if we got 1'st person gameplay in 2035.

And do what? Play barbie?

The whole walking in station thing is pointless. There is nothing to do whilst walking around that you can't do whilst docked in your ship. A massive time sink of dev time for a heap of naught.

Thats why it got put on the back burner indefinitely.

So if you could suddenly walk in the stations, like "Surprise here you go!". You are saying you wouldn't walk around in every type of station that there is to check out?
I find that hard to believe. Lore is cool, EVE Lore is really cool.
I for one would love to check out a Blood Raider Station.

I'd rather they fix other aspects of the game first....

There is absolutely nothing behind that door so why would they bother opening it?

id like to see it open too. Honestly, when CCP introduced it the protests werent against WiS. It was against NeX back then, and stuff. Id love to see a poker bar, or something.

Why build a door with a brick wall inside?

Obviously there must be something on the other side of the brick wall unless you have entered "The Twilight Zone."

And, five minutes later, you'd turn it off again and go back to flying your spaceship. In space.

A lot of people would explore the stations because the insides of them would be pretty.

Once that's done, there's the usual sandbox problem of "there's nobody playing" in most stations, so outside of hubs, there would very rarely be anyone to use more social aspects of the stations.

You can't really introduce risk to them, because you introduce other problems:
Assassin toons would never be worth killing. They would be alts without implants because CONCORD mechanic or whatever.
Stations are nice things for people with real lives. If you dock in one, you can step away from the game for a while without worrying about getting shot. If we can suddenly kill each other in stations, they stop being nice things for people with real lives.

I would like to see a bar (pub) behind the door where you can socialise with other players that have docked at the station, or talk to freinds in the bar over com stations... buy alcohol..

it would just add more content to the game, there would also be windows where you could see outside of the stations and see ships coming and going...

you also have dancers dancing in the background with a dance floor.

You do not know just how right you are on this. The time dedicated to the whole captains quarters / walking in station idea instead of working on the things that are important like fixing bugs, adding new features and working on balance issues nearly killed EvE and CCP. That door is there as a monument of sorts reminding CCP and the rest of us just what is important to the overwhelming majority of the EvE player base.

If it bothers you that much simply convince yourself that the door once lead to the gathering area for the now defunct FPS game DUST 514. Since that game no longer exists and walking through that door would cause you to fall into the great digital abyss and be lost forever CCP keeps it locked for your own protection.
