in response to threads like this i would like to state that i love the new forums. and troll all those that wish to just whine

the painful layout of this old one was hard on the eyes, and now with the new one i cna read it on my phone a lot easier.

the addition to hide posts from users is also something i am looking forward to.

also i encourage more people to make threads that wish the new forums the best of luck because "I'm just hoping that when these forums are frozen 'forever' - that there are plenty of CCP JOY topics on the front page."

if there is one thing that eve has is people that whine a lot and never seem to quit.

and no i am not a CCP dev alt.

The new forums are horrible and you are wrong about everything you wrote. Your mother would be ashamed of you if she saw this post.

If the new forums give better moderation capability then that's enough for me.

Honestly, some people make such a fuss. Forum != Game

Was looking at the "how many posts do you have" thread today and noticed that in 2003 there was an outrage at these current forums going live.

The more times change the more they stay the same.

People unhappy with ccp's development direction != Targets of moderation.

I once was like you and defended ccp vigelently. Then one day I woke up and realized ccp is playing a rather risky game of maximum profits.

Do you really want to see your personal investment of the game via your monthly subs going to other project that either have nothing to do with eve(world of darkness) or a project that has only the most basic of ties to eve(dust) trying to break into an oversaturated market?

I want every single cent I pay to eve to be put on eve development because I only care about eve.

I do not care about vampires or yet another console shooter in a market literally drowning in console shooters.

They are a business, they use the cash cow to expand. Just like every business before, and every business to come.

Why is it nearly every post supporting CCP the OP "forgets" to post with their main or any character that's in a corp.

Just an observation...

I don't think they are CCP alt's just peeps trolling or afraid that their point isn't validated by others.

Eve is a very vindictive game. Posting with your main however right it might be can have devastating effects because your leaders are trying to be political instead of truthful.

That was completely different and justified. Back then the forums were 'reset' because the game went from test beta to live beta.

Eve vindictive, surely not YARRRR!!

Your point is totally valid dude, however we are talking about the new forums here not politics. If you can't post with your main about that well then your either scared, trolling or both.

At least put your poster alt into a "funnily named corp" and have an awesome forum sig. oh wait.....

Top five reasons I hate the new forums:

1. There are years of history in the old forums that will be lost (read-only = not read).
2. The preview mouse-over drives me nuts. No way to turn it off.
3. Posts use a huge amount of screen realestate (less content more rainbows).
4. The colour scheme is hideous. I don't want to look at it very long.
5. Unfriendly to surfing on some portable devices.

Do you have any clue as to how a business works? Apparently not. Smart businesses are constantly evolving and looking for new markets and new customers. The alternative would be stagnation and eventual death of the business. Oh, and it's also very common practice for businesses to fund their expansion into new markets by (surprise!) using profits of their current products.

Your comments about CCP using Eve profits only for Eve development make as much sense as saying, "I just bought a Cadillac and I don't want GM using the money I paid to fund anything for Chevrolet, Buick, Vauxhall, Opel or Holden! Screw those people! They don't mean squat to me."

Maybe you should return and comment after you learn a little basic business theory (or ask your parents to explain it to you).

Also, vigilant is the correct spelling of the word you massacred.

So you are saying that if your cadillac's door fell off after a couple of months of use and the engine was smoking because of ill funded development you would be totally ok with this?

I'm sure Hilmar is laughing his fat arse off reading this thread.

Top five reasons I hate the new forums:

1. They break fundamental design principles.
2. They override and break standard browser behaviour with zero consideration for graceful degradation.
3. Reduced ability to customise how you view the forums.
4. Bloated to hell and back just to achieve the above negative points.
5. All new functions that might make a new forum worth it break if you try to fix these issues locally.

1. Times change. Get use to it. History is history and there will always be people out there who remind us of the past.
2. I know, it drives me nuts to. But I don't whine about that sort of ****.
3. I don't get what you mean there.
4. I like the colors. I think it's nice. Do you disagree with me? Good. Let us pit our will against each other and may the conflict between us strengthen us both.
5. I found it to be friendly on the iPad.

The simple ability to block all the negative posters that seem to think it's their "job" to expose the "flaws" in the game (that in reality few people agree with) is good enough for me. Maybe i'll actually read the General Discussion more than twice a month now.

So because I want to avoid uninformed retaliation I should as you say 'post with my main' and have the idiots and ******ed hound me for telling the truth?

You should be accountable for that in-game and here on the forums, why not?

You were once like me? Really? Is that an inverted way of suggesting that one day I will become like you and see the light? Don't you think you're being a bit hopeful there? I defended ccp vigilantly? Where? I think you should read my short post again. It's not a long post you know. I suspect you added your own unique interpretation to the first line. Never mind - chin up.

I'm not sure I see how this follows on from my post - you appear to have imagined an argument that wasn't being made.
