Typical



Before its removal players tended to use other sites because they were better.

Since its been removed all of a sudden people care, pity they didn't care enough before its removal.

You make it sound like someone like you pay attention to what they have before they lose it.

Well if you don't notice what you have then you don't deserve it anyway. That goes for relationships as well.

That's in human nature. People usually suck in some many ways so there's no need to point it out.

For me the big issue is that the EVElopedia was the only place you could find good descriptions of the complexes (cosmic anomalies, unrated complexes, DED complexes, ghost sites, data sites, relic sites, etc).

Pink ribbon worn.

Let's organize a "rally flight for Evelopedia", say, we all fly frigates from Amarr to Dodixie.

Because that's how wikis are kept current and relevant: people sign, wear pink ribbons, and organize walks.

You sure the information isn't in the Eve University wiki?

A Minmatar warship is like a rusting Beetle with 500 horsepower Cardillac engines in the rear, armour plating bolted to chassis and a M2 Browning stuck on top.

Of course it is, but as Droidster still has absolute no clue about the game...

I'm pretty sure, that none of you, who are whining about Evelopedia's dead right now has done anything to keep it updated.
Entitled prats as you are, you just took it for granted and now you're whining, bitching and moaning about its demise.
There wouldn't have been a close down, if some of you would have spent just a little of your time to keep it updated, but of course that would have made personal commitment necessary, but as always, it's easier to QQ about something afterwards.


So please keep QQ more! Your tears and salt are just so delicious!

That wasn't trolling, that was an (my) opinion about the topic, of course you must not entitle it, i don't have a problem with that.

Yeap, we done nothing. Is it a reason to close an official infomation resource? I don't think so.

Tbh, you're raising a good question with that sentence.
Was it a source of information?
Imho, it wasn't, the most time it was outdated or even wrong information caused by the said lack of updates.
Another question should be " would it have been shutdown when it had said updates?
I'm pretty sure it wouldn't.
Again, in my opinion, it was better to shut it down than let it give false infos to New Bros which could cause them making costly mistakes.
