The little stuff in eve is REALLY annoying. I think we need a list of "5 min fixes" (I know it takes much more then this ).

For example:

1) when you load up the science and industry screen, WHY do I have to click the "get jobs" button. It should do this when the screen opens. (can you imagine if when you opened this forum, it was blank, and you had to click a "get posts" button to see anything?)

2) same as above for wallet, why do I have to click "get trasactions"?


3) when I clone jump - it is WAY to many session changes, and clicks, and screens.
- when I clone jump, I should : exit ship if in one, stop skill training, jump, restart skill training. Bonus points if you can have it ask for a ship to jump in to on the other end (or pod as a ship type). EVEN if you feel that you want people making all these clicks.... WTF should we have to stop and start skill training! ... do you really think that adds ANYTHING to the game experience?

4) jump bridge and star base field passwords ... WHY can't you enter this when your in warp! Also, why can't it remember the last one used until you change it, or have a password manager, or something.

5) as a general confusion point for new players: why do we have "assets" "items" and "ships". Is a ship not an assets? Are items not assets? are assets not ships? There should only be 1 "stuff" category, with a powerful search function and filter.

6) When you searching the "stuff" catigorys (like the region), you should have a persistent set of filters for "ships" "amno" "modulaes" "ore/minerals" "other items"

7) WHY OH WHY do I have to type my password in to eve every time I log in .. even Hotmail, can "remember me". If you want me to re enter once a month, cool, but come on - get with 2004 people!

8) on some computers the opening screen(login screen) uses a TON of CPU I think it is playing a graphic or rendering or something. ESC menu should have an option to "use simplified login screen", or "don't use animations on login."

I am sure there is a ton of other little things people have come across that make for the unfriendly user experience, but would be fast, and easy things to change.

Just a friendly warning... Whenever you use "remember my password", it is stored in your computer's registry, and is extreamly easy to find for someone who knows where to look.

But every time it gets used, you don't use the keyboard to enter the password, protecting you from key loggers.

Oh wow, the world isn't black and white, it's shades of grey.

If memory serves you used to be able to set the client to remember you password several years ago. It was removed for security reasons.

Why it may not stop a key logger etc, it will stop your "freinds", younger brother/sister or ex significant other from trashing your account. Also from CCP's point of view it makes dealing with partitions related to other people trashing a players account very simple. They must have been account sharing to know the password, hit the ban button.

Here is one thing I'd change... Going off topic here. Change the market so that it is more organized by slot. That way when you find a weird mod that you haven't messed around with before you know at least where to look. Also it's easy when trying to find something useful that will fit in that last open slot of your test fit

My observation is, after having dealt with several bug hunters in the past, is that the bug report process is in need of more professionalism. I suggest to start at the root of the bug reporting process.

You can report a missing letter within a description and your report will get accepted.

Try to report a difference like 4% not being the same as 5%, or 9000 not being the same as 10000, and you get to read a lot of nonsense back.

Bugs that appear every single day, but are non-deterministic, because of the under-lying complexity of the code, are being dismissed as non-reproducible.

And while some things appear broken, but only lack documentation to be understood and therefore do work as intended, is the response "working as intended" given too quickly and without an explanation why, that it puts off players from reporting further bugs.

The developers then do not get the amount of bug reports needed to give a bug or an issue the priority it needs for it to get addressed.

The bug hunters are all volunteers and more likely arts and politics students than qualified software engineers, which makes bug reporting a pointless fight rather than a cooperative process.

Thousand papercuts in general discussion (dropped a few pages over the weekend)

devs are parsing the thread to add the ideas to a list.

General request for this thread: can everyone please enter their points in the following format:

Quote:

- This is a point
* This is a sub-point



(I don't actually care what symbols you use, but if I can just do "=right(a1,len(a1)-2)" in Excel, that'll make my life a lot easier Smile
