Hello Gents,

Awesome work so far I really like this new look and feel.

I have noticed that what EVEkill shows in kills is not represented on the New System.

On the New system it says I killed 1,023 and on EVE kill it is 1810 under Kane.Killmail.net

Will you be importing kills from EVE kill?

Yes, we will be importing manual mails, so no worries about that.

Its horrible, cluttered, lots of information repeated, terrible layout.

Basically takes a nice simple design like evekill and makes it overly complicated for no reason. Also hate the stupid "look at me I am a big UI" thing you have going, makes scrolling more frequent.

The UI isn't final, as for the whole 'overly complicated for no reason' - what?..

And yes, it's big, it's larger than EVE-KILL, and it's just a thing you have to get used to Lol

I'm sorry to say, but if you've ever worked on an EDK killboard, you'll find that it's far more complicated than it needs to be and the way it's developed is quite dated to today's standards. While the zkb may not initially be to your liking and change is hard, in this case, it's for the better.

Awesome work guys.
I love the new layout. Its fresh and responsive (bootstrap rocks).
I haven't checked all features yet nor have been digging into it for bugs. But can't wait to get a beta source on my hands to try it out :)


Keep it up!

Either my Firefox is crazy or there is some issues with the web page.

EDIT: Even if i have added my API things to my account on the killboard, it only shows that i have 79 kills there now while i have close to 700 in total now according to EVE-Kill and Battleclinic.

Will the rest of my kills be synced to the killboard anytime soon?

Here is a list of my current EVE / PVP videos:

1: Asteroid Madness

2: Clash of the Empires

3: Suddenly Spaceships fighting in Tama

Mail posting is still not implemented, what you're seeing is the parser spitting out your mail in array form.

As for your mails, we will move mails over sometime soon, but as the board also says on the front page - it's still beta.
So stuff that is missing, is missing cause we havn't gotten around to it yet ;)

And yes, it's big, it's larger than EVE-KILL, and it's just a thing you have to get used to Lol


There is 3 ways to get onto the kill page, click the background of the table, click the ship picture or click view. Why 3?

Having all the "picture" information is pretty ****, corp logo, alliance logo, militia all taking up a fair chunk of space yet the information is present in the next table column in a clearer text format. The only thing even needed there is the Avatar of the person + ship picture, rest is pointless.

Removing these useless pictures would allow you to add more information in the second to last 2 columns, like Involved Parties, rather than having a (insert number of gankers) next to everything.

On the actual kill you are yet again, showing duplicate information. The Involved Parties tab, shows the exact same information that the right hand side involved parties does, except its lay out in the same useless manner as the initial page.

There is a WHOLE lot of scrolling on every page, the tables have a massive height setting with an average size font. A lot of wasted space, less efficient browser with all the scrolling. EDIT: SORRY, should have been more specific here, on the killmail page when you scroll down to see table of the fit + dropped/destroyed items the tables are massive for no reason.

My feedback comes across as harsh but the world would get no where without negative feedback, nothing would improve.

I will however praise the fact you can filter by ship class, or rather size. As well as the t1/t2/t3.

I also do not quite understand why there is so much scrolling to get to the bottom, well there is not THAT MUCH but there is very little on each page of kills with from what I can see, no way of showing more.

I'm sorry to say, but if you've ever worked on an EDK killboard, you'll find that it's far more complicated than it needs to be and the way it's developed is quite dated to today's standards. While the zkb may not initially be to your liking and change is hard, in this case, it's for the better.


I am well aware how bad the coding for EDK is, most of the methods used in the CSS/HTML is no longer used and most of it is a mess. However from a viewers perspective, it does present the information easy enough.

EDIT: can not even imagine how badly its server scripting and database is :p

I don't understand the related kills. Where do the PL guys come from? As far as I could see they're not on any of the mails, and in theory the BR should look like this: http://eve-kill.net/?a=kill_related&kll_id=15648704

Edit: Related kills in general appear to be ****** up. Fix that please. :D

Edit2: Why can't you click a ship to get to the ship's individual stats or a portrait to get to the pilot's stats when you are on the related kills?

Edit3: http://zkillboard.com/related/30000250/201212261800/

When I click on Jaster's lost Dominix, I end up on a Dram that got killed. The linkage seems be bugged as well.
