Blocking and SlashDot-style karma ftw. That would quickly relegate the *******s to invisibility. Like/Dislike is a joke.

Yes, but this is CCP's Like/Dislike functionality! You should know they build better wheels than anybody Very Happy

<-- dislikes new forum, but loves EVE and EVEGate. Go figure.

What happened to CAOD?

Is it just hidden somewhere else now? 0.0 politics is an important forum, even if most of the posts are trash.

CCP - do you want them posting CAOD posts in GENERAL CHAT instead??


Evil must reside somewhere, right?

New forums are just a massive advert for sc****heap-challenge becoming the new standard meeting place.

Will be a good thing, with CCP losing control over moderation of the discussion they might be forced to once again progress.

I wonder if the scrapheap-challenge crew will be able to handle the flood of fail coming their way though.

Only the people who are replying seriously to this thread care about it. The OP was a troll (and a funny one imo).

I've seen worse forums. Lol @ this thread though.

How is the behavior you describe, TipsyMcStagger, worse than the rampant trolling that already exists?


At least now ppl r mostly anonymous and the occasional time some narci-wallower links a photo etc. and you mouse over and instead of linking to tinypic etc its on their blog and you have a chance to move on b4 having to go shower their mental love-juice off imagine that kinda stuff which is on the periphreal being the focus, not just forums, but ingame eventually.

And I picked out the 'like' button as a 'tl;dr; one small symptom, evidence of much more to come plus I havent investigated further yet I already know what theyr up too.

Eve-facebook-online. Its coming.


so wait, you have this crazy hair brained idea that EVE is becoming Facebook? If only we had seen this sooner...oh wait "Spacebook" came out last year...

I haven't used the new forums but the fact that they require HTTPS and don't work on the IGB for me is a step in the wrong direction.
How do you know that the new forums don't work in the IGB if you haven't used them? I just tested the new forums using the IGB and they work fine. What is the problem you anticipate to encounter?

I may be missing something, but how is the like button going to help identify trolls?

Don't worry, it is so obvious that you are probably not the only one missing it.

If a person has hundreds or thousands of post to his name but only a handful of 'Likes' then the person most likely trolls on a regular basis. Simple Very Happy

The one thing I really, really want is the ability to completely ignore individuals, collapse their posts into one line indicating their reply and nothing more.
With SpaceBook integration it should be a simple matter of adding a forum specific standing and use the standings list to sort it.

This.

Though it must be said I foresee the "likes received" line becoming an interim solution to this via Greasemonkey scripts, until CCP implements proper rep.

New forums look like they are aimed at 12 year old 'snowflakes'. Very Happy


We get to beta test the forums for the upcoming Twilight MMO, no doubt. Joy

Yeah and don't try distance yourself, your one of us buddy.

Also a whine about whining about whining is /ironic.

An ungrateful sod whining about something as important to the game play as a new forum? Hope not. Twisted Evil

Change the like button to a "gank" button.

If 10 are reached, current ship of the poster is blown up. Instant fix to the economy and civility, all in one. Much more in the spirit of EVE.

The new forums are crap, and I hate them tbh - I (and I'm sure many others) am comfortable with and enjoy the ones we have at the moment. Sure, the search function is perma-borked, and a couple of other minor issues, but I really dont think that they warrant the complete overhaul that's being proposed at the moment.

The new forums look like, as someone said before, the forums for 'snowflakes' and what have you. Why do we need a like button? This isn't some sort of news aggregation or social networking site. Why do we need these things?

An idiotic gripe and a stupid reason to boycott a forum that represents a hundred fold improvement over the 1990s rollover fossil we're typing on now.

Some people whine about the lamest crap.

I approve the new forum.

You can't despise social networks while playing in a MMO... it's nonsense.

actually it is, its just a way to force you to use their spacebook, bull****. but then again i dunno why everyone is worried, look on the brightside, spacebook is down/utterly unusable most of the the time anyway. so we will never see the new forums Rolling Eyes

I DON`T LIKE CHANGE!!1 Mad

on a serious note i also despise the facebookish approach. i am sick of this **** already and the so called "like-society" nowadays. Everything is just happy horsepoop lolipop land and everybody likes everything. Just try to bring serious issues to facebook and you will either get trolled to death, laughed at or completely ignored.

Personally i hoped for a more controlled forum to somewhat cut the exessive trolling going on here. While i certainly enjoy the random troll who puts a smirk on my face from time to time it can get frustrating very often when a good informative conversation is derailed and ****ed up by some bored ****head. I guess from now on it is the more you troll the more you are liked! bah.

DISLIKE.

Actually I like the slashdot system, where people are given mod points and can mark other people's posts "troll", "interesting", "funny", "insightful", etc.
