Pretty simple this one. It just came to me, but I'm still surprised I haven't seen it before.

In UI boxes that expect a numerical input (such as splitting stacks or transferring ISK), allow us to type a single letter suffix to multiply that number. For example:

2k becomes 2,000.00
5m becomes 5,000,000.00
9b becomes 9,000,000,000.00

How about using an existing standard for entering numbers in scientific format?

1e3 -> 1000
1e6 -> 1000000
1e9 -> 1000000000

Excel works this way, so why not EVE too?

Yeah... I've proposed implementation of digit grouping almost a year ago in a separate thread and added it to Akita T's thread.

I'll support it here too. Can't hurt.

Given how close 'k' and 'm' are on the keyboard, I cant imagine this backfiring horribly at all... Very Happy

Not a bad idea though, why not.

Or Russian rent format?

1k -> 1000
1kk ->1000000
1*** -> 1000000000

Seriously though. The OPs topic would be great. would do wonders for not accidentally transferring an extra or short amount of 0's

And what's next, identity card, driving card and high diplomas required to play eve or you're refused?

I'm ok with that, take plex away and make every account pay 100$ per month.

Seems pretty simple the way OP put it, every ones uses those terms.

So yes OP, no to you.
