These forums are an absolute joke. And i'm not talking about the posting content.

1) Why do I have to login every time I want to post. EVERY SINGLE TIME. Seriously, it's not the 1990s. How hard is it to get working cookies. If it is some ******ed technique thought up by CCP to stop people getting hacked or whatever, typing in your username/pw every 5minutes isn't helping the situation.

2) Why do I have to enter the name of my character. If that's your protection to people spamming passwords in an attempt to gain access to someone's account, put a ****ing captcha after 2-3 failed attempts.

3) Enabling images/signatures.
a) Enable it so it remembers your settings regardless what computer you are on
b) IF images is disabled, link the url anyway.
c) Whats the point of images, or the [img] tag if CCP just remove every image posted, or change it to a link. If you
don't want them, then just remove the [img] tag ffs.

4) 5 minute posting. So easy to get around, login, logout. There, I said it. What is the point of it. 5 minutes is far too long, 1 minute would be ok I guess to stop people spamming.

5) Word Wrap on names/corp names/alliance names that are over x amount of characters.

6) Give us our Utus aswell. Get off your arse CCP and actually do something usefull for once if you refuse to stop adding pointless features and fix these damn forums.

P.s Had to login like 3 times to post this, and i'm expecting some sort of **** up when I hit the Post new topic button.

If you can't/refuse to fix it, can you just swap over to vB. You can ask CCP Claw for the license if you can't afford it.

I hope CCP can look past the anger with which the post was delivered and read the message, as the points are valid and good.

Support the topic as quoted. I understand your frustration, but the excessive coarse language just isn't necessary. Wink

Yeah, seriously.
This is very annoying.

*Galdornae slaps CCP with a large-mouthed bass.

And right on cue. I tried to post this and got the: "You are going too fast! Wait five minutes and try again."
Yay for my "back" button, I guess.

How can I forum warrior when I have to always work around this bull****?

This thread is worth logging in to support.

That said, I proposed a similar thread over two years ago - literally on the first day the Assembly Hall went live - and it was passed and brought to CCP by CSM1. Since then, the forums have actually gotten worse. I'm not holding my breath.

I most emphatically support this. These forums are some of the most arcane and backwards of any major MMO out there. The constant logging in and the 5 minute wait are ludicrous and asinine especially in forums like the Timecode Bazaar where if you aren't prompt you could lose a sale or miss a good buy. And trying to reply to multiple people in a timely fashion is just not possible.

1) Configure your browser properly, how hard is it to do that? I didnt have to login to post this.

2) I'd rather enter a character name than trying to read some captcha rubbish.

Dont care about 3), supporting 4) and 5) though.

6) Learn some patience, it will take a few months to get your price no matter how much you whine.

It is time, CCP. Time to let go and geif us new shiny forums.

Besides, intergration with EVEGate would probably help with trying to get the ~bitter~ people to use it a bit Wink
