With SOW:BOB looming ever closer, I think it's
time to start pondering what the new forum will look like and what kind of features it will have. Guess I'll start with a couple of suggestions about my fave irritations http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

To be frank, I wish Ubi would change the forum software for good. Ye Olde Eve Community Forums sucketh, to put it kindly. I really wish that SOW forums would have, amongst others:

-A Large, clearly marked and positioned
"Search the Forums" function.

-Better overall color scheme. Maybe it's just me, but that blue/grey combo is kinda depressing. Not good for the overall morale of the troops.

-File uploading possibility for screenshots, user made movies, and other related stuff. Would need a dedicated moderator to prevent cluttering, though.

-Dedicated sections for whining to help prevent cluttering on actual discussions. It might even actually make it easier for the devs to notice some of the main gripes.

-No hideous flash animations or buzzing (faux) engine sounds launched as the page loads, please. The virtual pilots in SOW:BOB are, in spirit, officers and gentlemen and can do without such mockery.

I hope the community will put up their 2 cents on this thread to help build a more glorious and efficient forum.

that's a security risk, as scripts could be uploaded and then ran.

Besides this forum is provided by Ubi and is the same format as all its other game forums - and we are just a very very small corner of the Ubi forums! If we wanted forum changes Ubi would have to do it for all its other forums as well - not going to happen.

It blew that they shut that forum. How're we supposed to keep abreast of developments, to get the naked truth, the skinny on all the new stuff?
