A queue suggests that we want different skills lined up in a queue so a player can get away for weeks at an end and still get his training done. This suggestion is incomplete, misleading even, a queue can also be implicit for level 1-4 skills and apply only to the skill being trained. That way people don't have to stay up loosing sleep just to micromanage level1 -> level 2 -> level 3 -> level 4 transitions of a skill.

This is the major grief of not having a skill queue, EVE skill training dictating your life and body clock in order of not loosing in-game ability. The real change that is needed that will not be exploitable and will not add complexity to the game, but only a few lines of code is this:

On skill training complete:
If ( level achieved < 4 ) then
start training next level of the skill.

That is ALL!

If CCP finds this TOO much, we can follow a scheme like:

On skill training complete:
If ( level achieved < 5 ) then
start 48h timer and auto assume player wants to start training on the next level of the skill

On logon:
wipe timer and stay training

On reaching 48h without logon
abort training of skill, player did not explicitly started it, nor implicitly approved it by logging on.

Elegance all over it...it does solve the chores of changing skills (always a plus). Worst thing that can happen to a player is that staining on the next level started while you might not have wanted it, resulting in some unused skill points. Which is btw easily avoidable for people that log on regularly.

So CCP, no drawbacks....now get those hamsters to start working please! Why do I have to do all the thinking here!

Actually, that's exactly what most of us want.
But we'll be marginally content with any lesser alternative too.

Here's all I want for Xmas CCP... A very simple request.

Please allow me a simple 24 hour window to queue up my next desired skill.

This would be so great because while I play a little throughout the week, my work schedule often conflicts with optimal login time. A simple 24 hour window to queue my next skill would make training so much more satisfying when I can't plan training to always end in the evening.

What I want is the ability to change skills via my internet browser. (IE/Firefox)

Like so we'd be able to set new skills just about anywhere without having to log directly in the game.

Plus, a one-skill queue could be great.

Vote YES on question: Skill Queue.
I often don't even have access to the PC at the times the skills end. A one skill queue at minimum is necessary and external access would be great.

Actually I hope a skill queue is never implemeted.

Use EVEMon... plan the taining. I've never had a problem with with it and I work full time.

AS for unscheduled downtime... well you lose a few minutes or some hours of skill training. Yes, that is annoying but it is not a reason to make a massive change to the way EVE's training works.

A skill queue is probably the only thing missing from EVE.
This topic has my vote and I only hope that CCP will implement it.
