So after updating to Mesa 8.0 the ship browser now renders correctly in both Firefox (version 10.0) and Chromium (version 18.0.1025.11) on my Intel-graphics'ed Linux running laptop. Just saying.

updating mesa did not help in my case. What distribution are you using?

how to fix eve: 1) remove ECM 2) rename dampeners to ECM 3) add new anti-drone ewar for caldari 4) give offgrid boosters ongrid combat value

I don't know if this is the right place for this. I haven't played Eve in a while, been busy with RL stuff. However, I really enjoy reading the lore, backstory, and chronicles. They're not at all easy to find now because it's not obvious that they'll be under the community site. Chronicles don't come from the community, they come from the developers. Further confusing things, there is a section under Creations->Fiction on the main site that has some fiction, which led me to believe that was all that's left.

In order to find the Chronicles I actually had to go to the wiki, search for Chronicles (the wiki has a full-text copy of each, it seems. I thought they had been permanently moved to the wiki.), find one, scroll to the bottom to the "Comment on this" link, go back to the root forum, find this post with a link to the community site, and look though that. This is a terrible change, IMO.

Also, just noticed "Likes recieved". WTF, is this facebook now?

The website is beautiful, but it lacks something which is hard to put your finger on. Eve has always been about minimal, subtle, powerful, functional design. Here's kind of what I'd been hoping for.

Don't get me wrong, the imagery in the current site is beautiful [salute,Art department! :),] the interactive maps and ship spinning are friggin' cool, but I miss that cleanness and functionality.

Some thoughts before I get called on it...

- Yes, it's a Caldari-colored background with an Amarr fleet. Personally I think the "themed" nebulas might be borderline kitsch... they're ultra beautiful, so variety across the galaxy would be awesome! Anyway, this wasn't meant to be a statement. My real answer: it's just a concept. :D

- There's too much high-sec. I know. :D [In a perfect world... /carebear]

Here's what would be interesting to me: coherence between the Eve in-game UI and the website. If all things Eve felt connected, I don't know... I think I'd have a geek-out fest in my chair. Literally, I mean, because it's internet spaceships. But hey.

New site is a disaster. It's really good as advertisement, but useless for players, I think. I saw this piece of *oops!* when I was trying to download duality client. In good old days I could find it just in the left menu. Now I can't. I can't even find mention of it. It's annoying, when you have to search something, isn't it?

The new websites 'shiny' buries important information. The old website had a very functional design, for example if you were looking for patches then you could just select the proper categories.

For more functionality I would recommend to take the new website and use it as an advertisement page, but keep the main website with it's functionality with as a main website. if 10,058 Goon voices cried out and were suddenly silenced.

I have to agree with a couple posts above. The new website is an absolute tragedy.

It's nothing more than a giant billboard with shinies flashing all about, sacrificing function for everything else. There needs to be a balance in every website design between aesthetics and functionality. EVE's current website totally abandons all reasonable functionality for pure aesthetics.

I honestly can't think of a website that could be less representative of what EVE is.

I was suprised as I missed the launch P
The site is very pretty and more friendly for new people.
However, many things have gone missing. I hope they will return. The 'official news stories' especially.
I'd also recommend a direct link to the fiction portal.

it is good to see that you put an effort in improving things like the game or forum, however, like incarna launch, this site also has a great look and potential, accompanied by not practical aspects.

for instance, took me a wile to see some old options like account management and other things ... i'm still looking for the bug report section ...

1) - so, good looking forum, where you can't find the sections that you're looking for, wasting time and getting pissed of looking for things you can't find.

2) - also, "side root browse section" was always more practical to navigate, instead of that drop off stuff that you came up with on top.

i suggest you consider the importance of making the forum navigation more accessible to find different things, with root and sub-root sections

but continue with the good effort improvements. thank you

Please correct me if i'm wrong but,
Currently from the eve community website there is NO WAY to get to the eve music, videos, making-of-eve videos, concept art, etc. etc.

Someone asked today in general for the music and only found it cause of google.

Please add links to all this awesome community/media/history content
