On Tuesday, September 6, the new EVE forums will be returned to service. After extensive testing and the addition of many new features we are pleased to bring them back. These new features include a compact view, a character drop down list to keep you in contact with your fellow forum friends, the highly anticipated hide posts option, RSS Feeds, new search functions, and a selection of backgrounds to customize your EVE Gate and forum experience. Full details of these additions can be found in the patch notes.

You can start testing the new forums and their brand new server environment here. Please see this thread for information on how to report any issues and errors you may encounter during testing.

Update at 17:15 UTC on Monday, September 5.: An update from CCP Guard.

No, you can't. The login is broken.

I agree, the login is broken. It keeps timing out.

ALso why are the new forums not set on a fluid layout so a person with a larger screen will have the forum stretch to match? Why is the font size so small for the index where it has the last post by? Why do the new forums shove all the javascript into the top of the source even before the page has loaded. You're taking more time to do those things than to see the actual page itself.

Hint: Javascript is the last building block to a good website, not the first.

So, CCP has now released their version of Facebook, called "Spacebook"?

Cool, I can spend more time in-game instead of wasting time on forums :)

No, really. I like it. Too many distractions for me as it is. I need to grind!

Sell orders section is still wrong.

It should be split into 2 sections as I have previously posted (with many supporting posts) in the forum tests.

- Direct Sales, which is only for selling items directly and auctions. As in, "pay isk, get item".
- Lotteries and Services, which is for anything else, e.g. lotteries, services like freightering, killboard hosting, anything which isn't "pay isk, get item".

This is very important because at the moment, going to the sell orders when you want to buy something you must trawl through three pages of lotteries and other junk to actually find a page's worth of sales, which detracts heavily from the user experience. Everyone would benefit from this split.

Thank you for testing the log in feature! Embarassed We are looking into why it is timing out now.

While you are at it, please move all these Lotteries from the Sell Forums to it's own section.

Ironically that might be the only way to log in.

Is it wrong of me to still find it funny that CCP STILL has to warn us away from their new forums?

In a less trollish manner... do the RSS feeds not work? Seems to hang up when I try to view the actual RSS feed.

It took me several tries to log in. Time-outs galore etcetera....
After I did get to log in I noticed something I hoped not to see at this 'New forums: The re-try': it is slow. Real slow. Slow to load, slow to update pages, slow to preview (so slow actually it timed out twice...).

I do hope you can literally get it up to speed before the test run finishes and the real implementation starts.

Why are the tables still stuck on a static width? It's just not fluid, all that dead space on either side of the main body makes it look dated and cumbersome. Sad

Not again!!! Confused

Are the following things fixed?
  • Horrible bloated page loads (making it impossible to use on a mobile device)
  • Scroll nightmare
  • Colour scheme making ones eyes bleed
  • Waste of screen real estate with huge empty sidebars
  • Ability to read all forums without logging in
Edit: From a quick test it appears the answers are: Unknown (can't measure it until there's real content), No, No, No and No Crying or Very sad

CCP still has not learned that a feature should not be replaced by a worse version of the same feature... This looks to be exactly the same faulty P.O.S. forum they tried to fob off on us the last time...

Posted - 2011.08.31 22:46:00 - [22]

They fucĸing suck, and rofl all this time, after the first SUPER fail launch and the log in is fucĸed really?

Wow, new forums so we can have bigger pictures to show off dumb as fucĸ chars that can jerk off alone in a room...

Trash that new shiť and leave these.

How much time before the forum get pulled back? In hope of making EvE online a better Facebook.

I think they really forgot who are playing the game.

Alternatively CCP, and this is just an idea (holy **** don't push out some sort of marshmallow from your anus)

Just concentrate on the game (no not Dust, WoD or that "walking in stations" thing we were promised many many many many years ago)


Aint nothing wrong with these forums, they work fine as is.

Also, I want my ship spinning back, fed up of looking at a ****ing closed door, gawwwwds.

why is CAOD only available if your logged into the forums? Why you no allow us to read the trolls without logging in?

Posted - 2011.09.01 00:46:00 - [28]

Hi, about the new forums, IMO :

1. Too much empty space.
2. Font is too small.
3. More difficult to read from mobile browsers.

Tks, and keep the good job updating the Eve universe.

Is there no "recent posts" and "recent threads" button, or am I just blind?
