I'm actually kind of amazed this one hasn't been posted yet. The Eve forums suck, and we all know that they suck. You can't stay logged in for any extended period of time, the search function would have been embarrassing a decade ago, and the "ingameboard" can't be read in game. I can think of half a dozen pieces of open-source bulletin board software that would dramatically improve the forums, not to mention that there's an entire site dedicated to patching the problems with the forums.

The whole "posting as characters" thing is nice, but just about everything else needs to be reworked. I'd like to see CCP do something about this, and if the CSM can bring it forward, that'd be a good start.

Edit: This has been taken up by the CSM, and addressed at the Iceland meeting. I'm not opposed to getting further support, but to see CCP's response, see here.

It would be nice to get the forums to the technology level of the 20th Century and then maybe sometime in the future we can look at the 21st ;)

And one of the first fixes should be removing the requirement to post in order to show support in this sub-forum. Laughing

We really don't need to turn every thread here into spamfest.

Think about how long a thread must be in order to reach the 5% requirement for the CSM to be *required* to review and issue: not only do they need 11,000 people to support it, they need 11,000 people to post here in that thread.

Can you imagine the CSM trying to sift through the endless pages of "/signed" trying to find out what the issue really is. Rolling Eyes

Mmmhmmm, comes to something when our corp forums generally work better with more functionality. It is time these got a serious going over and some major development time/money deployed to making them truly sexy.

I agree, it's a pain to follow threads (need some kind of notification and/or rss), search is awful, etc. Something must be done.

Forums need some help badly. When we use an outside search engine for better information gathering than CCP's own search, its a sign of things gone broken.


I support the request for forum improvement.

So what was the original idea behind logging in twice to see forums/character info/account info??

I support reworking the backbone, but most gameforums out there are buttugly and unfunctional so lets not go that way.

I would really prefer overhauling the backbone but keeping the style as close to what we have now as possible. Aint no other forum that is as nice to read as the eve forums.

Definitely agree. The logging off is particularly irksome.

God yes, stop using ASP.

Fix the ingame browser to be more useful while your at it.

I don't think the forums are as bad as people make it sound... but no reason not to improve them!

I support a software upgrade to the forums.

I also believe that the highest SP character from an account should be the only chatacter your able to post with.

far to many alt posts areound here.
If you want to alt post .. pay for an extra account and train an alt on it.

Would be nice with a link in the bottom of the page, to the portion of the forum you are currently viewing.

Probably other functionality would be nice to have.

So I support this as an issue that should be adressed by the CSM <-> CCP.
