Functionality seems better than the old forums, plus cool backgrounds so yeah, +1 here. Kudos for your choice in high quality Amarr coding slaves.

Looks wise its way beyond the old forum, functionality wise, i´m sure it will get better with time. Good work (not needed but still good work), now get back to fixing issues in the game! Straight

The only black mark [imo] to these new forums are the preview boxes when your mouse cursor hovers over a topic, very frustrating. A lot better than the first iteration, at least you can get rid of the stupid pixel bed!

Me too, but the whining could be a bit less and there are still some minor issues they have to fix (like unintentional usage of ">" or "<" breaking/deleting your posts. :)

Old forum was super clunky and awkward. This new forum, while not perfect, is definitely a huge improvement. Well done CCP! :fanboi:

It's nice, fairly clean looking but it does need a bit of work, though there is that thread on applying some other styles to it... That should help some folks out.

I'm sure they'll be working on it for a while now that it's out.

I'm pretty happy as well. This round of forums has solved my two biggest beefs with the old forums, which were the way it logged you out during long poasts and the way the default character thing was cookie based, which meant you sometimes alt-posted (or main-posted) by accident.

I'm not sure it was worth having the incarna expansion, but taken on its own, its pretty good.

I wish the portraits were smaller since them combined with the poster information often takes up more vertical real estate than the post. Otherwise I like the new forums.

You can opt for the "compact view" somewhere in the top right corner. I had the same issue as you and that pretty much solved it for me.

Click the "Compact view" button found in the thread title bar...your portrait will magically shrink and information except for character name will go into the character dropdown list Big smile

As I posted in the announcement: a few more options to customize or set up theforum individually (number of posts/page for example) might be nice

It's much easier to look up posters and get an impression of their general stance on the game, ponder corporations and alliances.

Most important: not having to log on every quarter of an hour (apparently).


Also all that space makes the flames more bearable.


Ok, I will admit that it's nice to be able to look up a poster and see that they're posting with a character that's only 13 days old telling me that they are either a sock puppet, newbie, or paid shill without having to log into the game.



When you think EvE has paid shills is when you need to log off and get some sunshine, sans tinfoil hat, bruh. Seriously, thats the epitome of paranoia.

Here we are in the General forum and yet there is a distinct lack of whine in this thread. This is good, i'm more a beer man anyway Smile

I like the new forums now that they work, and the Gallente background looks very nice indeed. Also the jump to forum function is a time-saver.

If you think they don't you need a dose of reality. In fact they'd be stupid not to have such. It's standard PR stuff in this day and age.

Paid posters are used to drive traffic, generate discussion and yes, push idea's and products. this isn't conspiracy theory stuff this is just the way the world works.

I like them as well, way better then the old forums. Except this 'like' system, it's unnecessary.

Actually think of it more of a inverse filter.
The more Likes a person gets the less likely they will have anything of interest to say.

This is an EVE Forum
Therefore in the end the Trolls will have the highest number of likes.

Or you could just ignore it all together.
