There have been a couple of forum changes. To view character alliances, corporations and signatures please go into your “Settings” on the left side of the screen in the navigation tool bar. Select the settings “Show Corporation”, “Show Alliance” and “Default Character”. If you wish to not view signatures please select “Don’t show Signatures”.

update: You must have a "Fontsize" selected for the "Don't show Signatures" feature to work properly.

Except for these problems:

1.It doesn't work. (IE7)
I've tried with and without font size. Toggling the checkbox. Nothing gets rid of the stupid pictures.

2.People that don't want to or can't log in are now forced to wade past the stupid images.

Please. Change it back the way it was. Images should be opt-in not opt-out.

Doesn't work for me either. It ignores my selection for the default character, it still shows signatures. Don't know about images though.

I have a fontsize selected and thats the only thing that is working. Not loading all those images/stupid sigs was the best thing in years for me. Sad

You can no longer see others alliance affiliation without showing your own?

Is it somehow possible to show signatures but without images like it was before 1.1 patch? Right now it seems I can disable images only in posts and/or completly disable signatures.

I liked it how it worked before with disabled images - I could see text part of sigs, but no images. Confused

How did you manage to get rid of the images? It's those that annoy me. Especially that stupid yellow rectangle.

Left menu - Forums/Settings. You have to be logged in though, they killed that small checkbox for dis/enabling images which used to be on top of the page. God knows why, it was actually very good solution.

Oh I know that. What I was wondering is what else you did. That setting has no effect for me despite anything else I try (see my original post).

These changes seem poorly thought out. I use corp/alliance membership as a mental filter for reading posts, but now I can't reliably use that because I can only see it when I'm logged in. Not only is that a pain since I have to manually log in every time I visit the forums but we all know how the EVE forums can behave, and I'll often have to log in several times over a browsing session.

I'm not sure why corp & alliance membership is supposed to be a secret...

Ah sorry. The only thing I did was selecting default character. But it seems to be random, becouse it wasn't displaying alliances to me earlier (even though enabled) and now it is without me changing anything. Confused

Mayby try to login/logout? I did that few times.

Yeah. Mine is now hiding signature images as long as I have don't show signatures set.

It's still annoying that the setting is tied to your character though. Given the crappy way the forums handle being logged in (ie;forgetting that you are) and the problem of those using computers where logging in would be inadvisable it's just a crap change.

Whoever removed that checkbox for disabling images should be sold to Amarrian slavers!

Can you make them show per default as before, as now - if not logged in they won't show. Making COAD look like a crazy alt spammage forum.

Plus, I'd love for EVE-Search to be able to track the corporation/alliance without having to recode it to log in before every visit.

Keep up the good work!

Put me down as one of the people who would like signatures to be disabled by default. There are times I just want to browse the forums without logging in.

Hey! They fixed it already!

I now have an image placeholder and some text telling me to change my settings to see images. That's better.

Thank you CCP :)

NB:I'm at home now so if the problem is still there for you it implies something specific to your browser.

Yep. :) Also images are now filtered from sigs too and it works even without login! Thank you, whoever fixed it!


EDIT: In case that person was already sold to slavers, please contact me, I will buy him back. Embarassed

Greetings,

So I'm not sure exactly why the recent changes, but is there a way I can see forum signatures and corporation/alliance affiliation, if the poster chose to show these, without fighting the forum login problems that occasionally crop up? Also what was the rational behind hiding corporation/alliance based on your own character choices?

What was wrong with the previous solution (that seemed to work) of the check box at the top of the page to enable/disable images, or the show affiliations based on the poster's preference not on the reader's side?

these are tbh idiotic changes :|

needing to login just to view things like sigs/pics and what corp/alliance/race people are in is annoying.
just have it so you can disable images not have it off as default.
the first one you made was nice but maybe a better spot and have it on as default.


also get rid of the idiotic censoring

Would it be too much to ask for that CCP make sure that their forum section of the web site core functionality works before introducing new options?

I mean, could you fix it so we don't have to log in five (5!!!!!!) times in a row to post, or so that we are not constantly redirected to the main forum page when trying to access the character or the player news sections??

I've visited amature sites that don't have these problems, surely CCP has the funds to contract a competent web support firm (or what ever those types of services are called) to maintain their website in working order?

As long as you're adding checkboxes gallore, please also add a "I'm over 18 and would like to see text without the censor asterisks" box as well, please. Since you obviously have code that can hide things based on your login/logged out status, at least give us adults an option to opt-out of the censor filter.

I think that the 'do not show images' should by default be off, otherwise you need to login just to read posts, which gets very annoying. Also, it was better when you could choose your own corp/alliance details, and you see what other people chose to display for theirs.

At least you fixed the login bug though Very Happy
