This is an update of the previous guide to posting on the Ships and Modules channel.

Before you ask a question or post

  • Check the Set-up Index to see if a similar set-up already exists. If it does, please use that thread and either ask for a rating of your thread (reply to the thread in question) or discuss one of the set-ups already suggested there. This reduces the amount of new threads, bumps the already existing thread, and adds to the discussion in progress.


  • If you have problems finding a thread; EvE-Search might be able to help you find the one you are looking for.



When you ask a question or post

  • State what you want a set-up for. This makes it easier for people to give advice - there are many different kinds of setups, the most common being PvE or PvP set-ups, but a PvP-fleet set-up and a PvP small gang set-up can be two very different things. As a rule of thumb, the more precise your question is, there more precise your answer will be. So if you will be fighting Guristas in your mission or belts, say so.



  • If possible, include generally how many skill points you have and what kind of equipment you can use. If you are asking for a Level four mission set-up for a Raven, and cannot use T2 missiles and/or tanking gear, it might be an idea to include this in your post.


When you reply to a question or a post

  • Try to be constructive and helpful. Point out the flaws in either the set-up or the question in a constructive and helpful way. The Ships and Modules Forum is where a lot of new players come for advice and help and they might not be familiar with how to go about getting a set-up. Instead of trolling or flaming their thread/post, point them towards the Set-up Index or help them out. This way, the next time they have a question, they know what to do and where to go.



  • If you don't have anything constructive or helpful to say; don't post. Trolling and flaming people will be dealt with in accordance to the forum rules, and you might end up losing your posting privileges. It is perfectly okay to disagree with a set-up or a tactic, but do so in a constructive and polite manner.


And finally the reward for reading all this is that when you post you much more likely to get a response you need \o/ wasn't that worth it?

Example Post - Asking for a set-up

Hi. I'm a relatively new player, and I would like to have some inputs on a Level-3 Mission set-up for my Harpy. I've got about 3,5 million SP, 1 mill in gunnery and can use t2 small hybrid guns (blasters/railguns) and t2 shield boosters/hardeners.

My current set-up is:

[High-Slots]
<Enter your highslots>
[Med-Slots]
<Enter your medslots>
[Low-Slots]
<Enter your lowslots>

Hi Zymurgist,

I'd use <module this> instead of <module that> because of <argument x>. Also, I'd swap <module x> with another <module z> if you are fighting <faction r>.

How about this set-up?

[High-Slots]
<Enter your highslots>
[Med-Slots]
<Enter your medslots>
[Low-Slots]
<Enter your lowslots>


Now for your reward: More respect and quicker responses from your fellow pilots!
