I do appologise if there is already a thread for this.

I was thinking that eve gate could have personal/corp/ally Killboards incorperated into it.

It seems like the perfect place for it, It would also get people using eve gate alot more because at the minute it seems like its not used to its full potential...

Just a thought... would be awesome if it can be done though. :)

This is a good idea and I support it.

Unfortunately, CCP has stated previously that they have no intention of hosting any official Killboards, so I doubt this will ever happen.

Also, this sort of feature doesn't really attract new players like Incarna or DUST or PI will so it would never make it onto CCPs new agenda. Sad

If CCP doesn't want to host KBs, for whatever reason(bit silly imo), they could easyly work with someone else like battle clinic for one, who would host killboards. Considering Eve Gate is basicaly a copy of facebook. It would be just like creating an app that players who wanted to use would install on there own gate. CCP then wouldnt need to host anything they just need to make it work.

I'm no expert but it can't be that complicated.

Not supporting anything that improves spacebook.

It's a total waste of developer time and they should be focusing on fixing/polishing the game and not there bloody spacebook that no one really uses.

As for WHY CCP won't do the KB.... one of those reasons I'm willing to bet good ISK is the fact they consume an obscene amount of Hard Drive space in just functionality alone.

My Forum boards don't even consume that much for crying out loud... my host provider has a 100MB cap on DB Storage... the KB's I tried to host consumed half of that space in just the first week alone. (It was for an alliance and they we're busy busy indeed)

*And for people who don't understand what goes into web-hosting... that's an considerable amount of storage space to take up. My forum boards have many many posts and they hover around 5 to 10MB after 2 to 3 years of service... just to give you a rough idea.*

Now I didn't look into what took that space up.... it never made sense... but I have a feeling that would be one of those reasons.

But yeah... Spacebook has some nice features... but I can live without them and safely say its a security risk waiting to go off.

waste of time?! thats your fault buddy. i use eve gate all the time. also it is getting better. your statement is like me saying they should not fix blasters because i don't use them. so what about when you do want to use eve gate? oh let me guess, then they can fix it? your selfish buddy.

obviously supporting.

I'd support this, and I disagree with the space issues Drake brought up for one reason: CCP is already storing the data required.

Think about it, a killboard needs to know the following information:

The characters involved, the ships invovled, the items dropped, the ISK values, etc etc etc.
CCP already stored all this information, because they provide it to other KBs via the API. So for CCP to proviude a kill board would not require any more real database space (they even store the kill mails somehow, so the queries to pull the data already exist, in large part).

In reality all this would require is an official UI integration into Eve Gate, which seems like low hanging fruit to me.

It might actually give me a reason to use evegate.

This might make it too easy to find everyones kills/find out who all is in a corp for a war dec.

Dont give a damn about EVE-Gate but a uniform source for kills would be appreciated, even if it has not front-end visualisation but for sync only.
