first

Also IBC.

Its fantastic to see the forums get a much needed upgrade and the new search might put eve search out of business.

Also Stormies might look cool, but with a blaster they are only as effective as the old pic.

Regarding ideas discussion and the current implementation (Jita Speakers and Features and Ideas), how are feature suggestions and their relevant discussions being implemented in the new Forum system?

edit:
How does the badge look when DEV, CSM, GM and ISD have answered in the thread? Shocked
Or does this only work for OP being by that aforementioned guys?

edit2:
Any news/details on Assembly Hall and Feature and Ideas Subforums?
I thought you would at least say some words about those.. Crying or Very sadCrying or Very sadCrying or Very sad

IBC :D


\o/ @ working search

But will I be able to restrict my search to a few subforums at once? For example: Search for topics in both the Assembly Hall forum and the Jita Speakers Corner forum.

(this seems somewhat more useful than bookmarking my search)

Is the new forum based on IPB? Or perhaps something custom?

Will the new forum support the most important feature of the old one: randomly logging people out every 60-120 seconds?

Logging in every single time I want to post is a non-negotiable part of my enjoyment of the EVE Online Forum Experience.

Trying counts for squat.

Hay! Nice work CCP! Looking forward to an RSS feed of search criteria... that's really going to come in handy. /me impressed.

This crucial detail was discussed at the December Summit. To quote the relevant minutes:

"The new forums will not randomly log you out anymore, although there was significant support in the CSM for restoring this beloved legacy feature."

I personally am pushing CCP Alice to add random logout as a preference setting.

Please revise your censoring code. So I can write "**** Tracy sat in a cockpit of his ship and sip his niggardly cocktail" whithout any tricks. I can understand (for some extent) censoring **** or ***** or ****.

Maybe you should make your game 18+. It would not affect your sales in any way. Parents don't control what their children play nowadays. They all expect government/corporations to do parenting.

You have game with slavery, mass murders, narcotics. Is swear word really such a deal?

Will the limit of characters be increased per posting? So we don't need to create 10 postings to start a new and big postings (application descriptions, feature listings, titan listing thread, etc, etc, etc)

You can always petition and ask for words to be white listed, like cockpit and niggardly :)

Is the badging permanently applied? I suspect that the badging is a "current status" thing, which means that as soon as a character ceases to be a member of the CSM, all their CSM-badged posts made while they were a member of the CSM suddenly become plain posts.

Regarding this "Threads with DEV or GM posts are highlighted by a colored badge."

Can you make these bright for threads with DEV posts we haven't read, dim for threads where we have read all DEV posts, or some other indicator?

i.e. Right now if I go read a thread highlighted red, because I want to know what the DEV has to say, and then maybe I come back in an hour and see 100 new posts. I have no idea if any of those new posts are from the DEV, further responding to whatever troll awesome idea OP came up with. Same for GM posts of course.

Also, stop locking threads after 90 days with the new forums :P I understand there's probably a very good reason for this (although I don't know what), but there are a lot of suggestions I've come across I'd rather just *bump* with my comments because I support the idea, instead of starting a new thread, but I have to start a new thread if I have something to add because it's locked! Same with several tech support issues. I hope this "feature" won't carry over at all, but if it does, consider removing it from strategic parts of the forum, such as suggestions and tech support.

Last thing, I didn't see this, but it's a pretty standard feature on a LOT of forums (pretty much every one I've used) which is, when you post, an option to email "Notify me when a reply is posted" updates. RSS feed is a HUGE step forward, but I find the email updates work better for temporarily following a topic I'm really interested in. I hope this is included.

TLDR

  • Light/Dark Dev/GM badges for new/old posts

  • Stop the auto locking 90 days thread thing

  • Email "Notify me when a reply is posted" updates



Else, great job! and huge steps forward!
