FINALLY! oops capslock, sorry Capslock...... Laughing

Only just getting the fan submissions back up would be awesum!

Though I would be "slightly" embarrassed having this broken piece on my website for... well before Titans made it to Trinity. Shame on you!

Now fix it!
Fix it. Fix it. Fix it. Fix it. Fix it. Razz

Pretty easy to do as it is: Just block "img.eve.is" in your browser, and poof, there's no more avatar images.

CCP are unable to talk about the final 5 teams, for internal reasons.

What I want in the revamped web page.

1. A forum search function that works, where I can search for specific players, corporations/alliances, keywords, items and generic content by category and date.

2. We need corp and alliance management and communication tools. The management of a forum can be very difficult. As people come and go from the corp/alliance we have to constantly update our forums. It is also a huge security risk, as it is very easy for spies to get access and people hack player forums. Every corp should have some kind of forum that is secure and has a public and private presence. We were promised something along these lines in the fanfest presentation. Sounds like this has degenerated into a web page update. One of the primary reason a lot of organizations collapse in EvE is that the infrastructure is just too damn hard to manage for players. They can last a few months, but people burn out. Its not a skillpoint limit that makes most organizations in EvE the size they are, its the ability to manage them.

3. Market/Industry pages need to be useful. CCP has made an extremely complex market and industry. The web tools needed to manage that are primative. Accurate descriptions of how things work can only be found from players, who learned through trial and error. There is no authoritative source, just getting the item database listed accurately has taken forever. When CCP changes a mechanic, we only find out after the fact in some cases. To make sure something works, I might have to spend 3 hours on SISI verifying the setup. How things work should be very clearly articulated by CCP, and they should be KEPT UP TO DATE. We should also be able to download a spread sheet on every item. The biggest time sink in industry is keeping information on items up to date, and this is done primarily out of game with spread sheets.

We'll see if you can live up to your predecessor, who although had only a short stint in the web dev team, was pretty cool.

Oh hey, I don't remember there being staff bios

That's great to see.

But the whole 'soon™' thing is annoying. Essentially what you're announcing is that we may or may not decided within the next year to do something about the current status regarding the site.

Good news but... No Flash please ! Surprised

Seriously, Flash is nice for animations and such but...
* It messes up navigation (no backward/forward standard support from our browser)
* It messes up bookmarking
* I use a flash-blocking add-in because of those stupid blinking/singing/flashy ads made with flash we have everywhere, and because of the huge load on the system when we have ten to twenty tabs full of flash content opened in the browser. Sure, I can reactivate every Flash frame with a single click but, hell, it's boring, especially when a site relies on multiple such frames and I have to reload them every time.

No Flash please. Please..... Smile

PS : Same goes for Silverlight, Apollo, or whatever any fancy new technology that breaks the web model.
PPS : Light and fast is better than fancy and sexy. ;)

It's interesting because this is exactly what I did for my current employer and while it is no easy task, it's well worth the effort. We joined 2 sites into one new site while maintaining all the data as well as creating a custom CMS to manage the site. Now we are working on making the site more '2.0' ( I hate that term ) by adding the jquery library to the site. I highly recommend it as it is quite robust and extremely easy to work with. How this will affect the IGB, no idea...but I'm eager to see the your work!!

Here's an easy one while you're fixing things up: how about making the dev blog advertise the correct feed to readers, instead of the general new/announcements feed? Come on, it'd be like a one line fix... :-)

Good stuff.

While you're at it it'd be nice if you could improve both the EVE sides and the ingame browsers so they're compatible with eachother.

As fas as I can tell the biggest problem is that the ingame browser doesn't understand tables. So if you open evelopedia or the forum or something, it goes nuts.



I always found it strange that the urls always had "ingameboard" in them, yet, never worked IN GAME. Honestly, it would be incredible if we could actually visit the forums from inside the game. Are there any plans to update the in game web browser to be more standards compliant to go with the new standards compliant site?

This isn't even funny anymore. I mean, this is web programming, not brain surgery. However, even a brain surgeon has a very good idea how long the op will take. Why is it that the CCP web maintenance team takes YEARS to do anything???

I see some changes have come to the website. My thoughts so far:

All the menus on the left were closed for me after clicking the Forum section, I had to re-open them all. When I click the Forums or Dev Blog menu, I want it to go to that place, like it did before. Not open another menu where I now have to click something else. It's not intuitive, it's annoying.

All in all I'm not liking the way the website is behaving today. Slow load times of up to 2-3 minutes of load time, but it could just be a bad connection between me and the server. The menu glides up/down when I click the section. I want it to open instantly, I don't like clicking and having to wait. The website is already taking forever to load, I don't want to sit here staring at a blank screen for 2 minutes then have to wait even longer because I have to open a menu, then a sub menu, then click a link. Nothing digs under my skin like waiting for an application to do some fancy crap like slide a menu out of the way.

*edit* Oh and for some reason Apostrophes are not showing up, instead being replaced by some weird characters and symbols. Just an FYI.
