"A few reasons these new forums suck (...and here's hoping for some quick fixes)"

I have managed to be forum ***** #2721 on these forums. Although Chribba only runs the algorithm that determines forum ***** rank every once and awhile.

I've taken a look at the new forums some time ago. They sucked, They didn't have enough 'room' for posting I noticed.

I hope the archive of these forums is kept around. There is much history and nostalgia herein.

Well, yeah, at least that they said they would do.
How long, no idea.
There's always eve-search though... for now, anyway.

As some of you probably noticed, the new forums are online... and these forums here will be closed (made read-only) very soon.

I have only two minor regrets... one, that I will be forever in second place after Dark Shikari (unless Chribba somehow managed to merge posts from both forums in a single statistic) and two, that the new forum format is still the ridiculous "fixed max width" one that several people complained about.

So...

Goodbye, old forums... long live the new forums !


Epic troll!
Though it was CCP trolling themselves lol

Um... I'm impressed with your posting statistics. I've always been happy just being in the top 100 myself.

I particularly like to remember that post a few hours ago by... CCP Navigator, was it ?
The one in which, as a response to my plea to temporarily reopen these tried and true old forums until the new ones get a thorough checkup, he said (paraphrasing) "the new forums are tied into EVE Gate, the old ones will never be reopened".

Some statistics; according to EVE-Search you typed 30,030,948 characters which is about 6,006,189 words (assuming 5 characters per word). Let's say you type with an average speed of 40 words per minute. That means that you have spent 150,154 minutes typing, which translates to 2,502 hours typing. So all in all you have spent 104 days (24 hours a day) doing nothing else but typing. Whoa! Shocked

PS: It's 2AM so I might made a mistake.

Minus quoted stuff, of course, which still counted as typed characters.
And roughly just as much logged into the game.

So Akita, how does it feel having Navigator backtrack his rather harsh "never going to happen, locked" in your thread suggesting reverting to this forum?

I've got a sneaking suspicion this is only a temporary respite..

They've sunk too much time into Eve Gate to go down without a fightEvil or Very Mad

A bit of happy (because the right thing happened) with a bit of sad (because Navigator is not a bad guy, but he ended up in a bad place due to an unknown proportion combination of personal belief and company policy).
I have to admit, I didn't really think they'd roll back to these old forums, and the fact that they did is BOTH a sign that there's still some hope on one hand, and a sign that something really ugly happened Iceland-side on the other hand.

I shudder to think what exactly happened to make them break down and reopen this old version.
And I also wonder how long they'll stay open.
Again, on one hand, I hope they stay open for a longer time (because the new forum was atrocious in MANY, MANY WAYS), yet on the other hand, I hope they manage to not just patch them up but also fix most of the complaints presented (if they only fix the security concerns, nothing was gained).

And 40 wpm is pretty slow for self-posted thoughts, too.

Probably the fact the default template pages for the forum software were still found to be enabled (The default signup pages, terms of service, password reset functions) although to no function. Also, the fact that they've made it seem as if they've put blood sweat and tears into the creating the new forums, only to have it discovered that it's a copy paste job with a reskin and then shoehorned into Evegate. (Hello), that much is painfully obvious to ANYONE who looked at the HTML/CSS.
