I want to say the old, but the search feature just sucks to high hell. I'm leaning the other way, unless they improve the search.

Yeh, we really need a whole new set of forums just because the search feature on these sucks? Confused

Old. They're well presented and nicely organised, they work just fine and everyone knows their way around them which is pretty damn important for the internet forums of an 8 year old mmo.

There maybe stuff that needs fixing/improving but I don't see how that justifies completely new forums.

old forums.


Someone at CCP didnt take his Human Computer interaction courses seriously.
The new forums blow in that sense. They arent human friendly, they look "nice" but nothing more.

Definetly the old one, only thing that disturbed me was the bug that the settings sometimes got deleted or you need to log in twice or tripple.

I disliked everything of the new board

Neither are of an acceptable standard for 1998. I was truly shocked the first time (2004) I saw the forums.

If this was a freebe site run by one guy I would be more tolerant however I would still point them in the direction of infinity superior and free forum scripts they could use if they wanted to.

For a commercial entity to foist this rubbish on their paying customers is disgusting.

Create the new forum, fix the mistakes, make it look like the old forum, reduce the character picture size along with the quotes, best of both forums!

If they make sensible use of the tons of great feedback they've been given by the players, the new forums will be much better (although, personally, I don't get the problem people have with the color scheme).

As things stand, the only real problem with the old site is that third parties are trying to run scripts. The noscripts plugin for firefox takes care of that, but still, it'd be nice to see such scripts gone. Forever.

New.
-better looks
-evegate integration
-player/forum interaction

Get rid of the security flaws and bring them back!

The old forums feel like they've been crapped out of the '90s.

You want to know the real reason the forum, whiny minority is saying "old"?

Change. The greatest enemy of nostalgic and bullheaded people.

Oh no something doesn't look 'new' gotta change it. What I don't get is why didn't CCP just make the damn forums run on flash, that's safe right? What's more NEW than FLASH Forums, that's gotta be cool to not be able to use a TEXT based communication medium without having some stupid script running right? I don't think you can get much more 'new' than that but then I don't chase what is 'trending' to break functionality and prefers bells and whistles over substance.

Old. Only reason is they are easier on the eye (in the sense they don't hurt them after a minute of reading).

Old. Much better use of space, quotes aren't ugly, and imo the lack of a "like" feature is a good thing.

New forums also take noticably longer to load for me on my poor ickle laptop Sad

Honestly, I liked the new forums. They actually gave me less eye strain, and being a designer, I liked that they integrated with the look of EVE Gate.

Things need to be updated once in a while. Change can sometimes be good folks. Don't be afraid of the whitespace...

I vote for the old tried and true forum...

especially if it is less prone to viral injections...

No mean to offence. Designer here too although I don't think claiming to be a designer helps anything at all. Old forum gives less eye strain (to not just you but everyone) period. I'm going to disagree your statements just for the sake of doing it. Things do not need to be updated unnecessary. Change can sometimes be bad as well. Don't be aftaid of the old... I'm sure you know what I mean being a designer yourself. While I appreciate the effort that went into the new forums... while it does look fancier and "fresh" but it doesn't mean "better".

Utter dung. All you folks who can read faster than 100 WPM can scan the old forums quickly to assess interesting content.

The new forums make that impossible. If there is a unit of measure that contrasts the old from the new, it is the amount of time it takes to peruse quickly and see if anything is interesting. I'm almost incredulous that this wasn't the overriding factor in the new redesign, as I won't spend time tediously navigating any forum format that takes more time than the original.

Keep your stinkin' eye candy, Mr. Marcellus, I haven't got time for fluff.
