How far does this go? Banning discussion on anything that might distract you from playing Eve? Films? Books? TV? Other internet sites? It seems to me that by the logic this rule was implemented, you might as well delete OOPE altogether.

OOPE has for a number of years been my hub for keeping up with the goings on in the internet world. I've kept coming back to read it even when I've taken breaks from the game, all the while reminding me of this internet spaceship game I used to play. I've valued the discussions with other like-minded people...

This really. There is NO reason at all to not allow discussions of other games we like to play in OOPE when our beloved mistress Eve allows us to.

I, too don't frequent other forums and like to see what fellow pilots like to play.

It was perfect for years and now out of the blue....people are upset because of this stupid and all too harsh ruling.

Edit: It's OK to ban discussions about rivaling games (as in sci-fi mmos), but hell why shouldn't we be allowed to discuss Hello Kitty Online.

What up CCP? An inferiority complex? In my EVE? Who'd have thought?

yeah... OOPE Rule #5 needs to disappear.

in the past it has never been a problem, DEVs and GMs have quite happily posted in topics about other games...
... and started their own...

I just went back around 40 pages or so to see how common game-related topics are... and it turns out they're pretty darn common.

This. Supported.

Completely supported.

OOPE now looks a lot like a messy school class with a bad teacher in front. When you treat your customers like children, they are going to act like children.

One of the great things about OOPE was the active gaming community.

It feels like a slap in the face that we devout eve players are now treated like a potential risk in lost subscriptions. Slapping customers in the face is a good way to start losing them.

I know right? I can't imagine why or how though. Haven't they paid attention to the feedback and awards they get from the community as well as their player base? This is literally the most beautiful, not to mention the most complex and involved MMO in the history of MMO's. The sheer fact of saying, "I play Eve" commands all sorts of street cred amongst gamers. Rome isn't burning, Even isn't closing, realms / servers aren't being combined or shut down. Eve is growing, it's fan base is very protective of the game. Think not? Try starting a, "Imma quit and go play STO cuz u guyz are teh meanzorz to meh!" thread and see what happens. Or try suggesting game changes that would make things "easier". Someone will swing a baseball bat at your nads. Easymode cartooning? Not in OUR Eve. We are mature enough, and happy enough as a group to enjoy doing what gamers do - discussing other games idly in the downtime. Gearheads discuss other equipment, cat lovers discuss the merits of having chinchillas, Eve players should be able to discuss what other games are out there on the market (what fails, and what might be worth our time).

Let gamers be gamers please.

Censorship is a slippery slope. First it will be discussion about other games... next it might be discussion about this game. The question is, where does it stop?

It's these new mods that have no clue what they are doing. We need a Senior Community Representative or something to coach new mods so this doesn't happen again. WTB Mitnal.

Edit: I just want to point out how crazy CCP Adida is in enforcing rule 17 in OOPE or anywhere else. According to this thread, a CCP dev made a thread in OOPE about a game other than EVE

Got anything to say to this CCP Adida or are you going to hide in a corner and hope we forget?

Frankly, I find myself amazed I still come on the forums as I have to relog practically every 10 seconds now, and this is just stupid.

Supported, this (censorship crap) just doesn't make any sense whatsoever. And it isn't just about OOPE.

I support this entirely.

Well, it's gotten bad enough for me to even post for support in the assembly hall.
