This is already possible You can change the URL to view a different character@handle. We will also be providing players an option in the near future to disable others from viewing their characters if they wish (sensitive data, like EC and Dilithium totals, can not be seen by anyone other than yourself), as well as adding ways to look up your friends and fleet mates without having to edit the URL.
Could this be THE default setting for the Gateway.
Some players may have no interest at all in the STO gateway, or even have heard about it, and not want their characters info out for everyone to see. It would seem a shame to make them have to use it just to "opt out" after their characters personal info is already exposed.
I assume we will be able to see DOFF, rep, and fleet projects at some future update. What about skills?
Also, any chance we could get the detailed descriptions added for items? I understand if the exact numbers can't be posted since there is so much interplay between consoles and player skill level, but basic information would be nice to have, such as procs etc.
This gateway system is MUCH better than the old "Captain's Database". I like it alot and its very functional.
Can we get the ability to search just by @handle as opposed to the <character_name>@handle so that we may see all un-hidden characters per account? This would be a great asset as well as being able to view individual logs associated with that specific character.
Also this would be nice, the ability to hide your characters from everyone except for friends and fleet as an option under "Privacy"
After clicking the link in Firefox (18.0.1) on Win7 x64, the login screen came up and I entered my details and code, which arrived quickly.
I had a click around and discovered that the details were from Tribble.
The first niggle I detected is on the "Officer Stations" screen, where it shows one of my BOFFS twice. This BOFF is the one that takes the universal position on my shuttle, but that isn't made obvious as there is just one ship image on the screen.
Clicking to my Captain Profile I see that all my ground equipment is missing, as someone else discovered. My face picture is blank too.
Going on to the Accolades screen I discover many graphical elements are out of keeping with the majority.
I clicked over to my KDF toon and discovered that my Captain image is missing, and my BOFF images. I imagine this is a temporary thing as I copied that toon over a very short while ago.
All in all, this is great. I like the idea and the execution. Maybe LCARS colours instead of the FED blue would make it look nicer, if that wouldn't involve more costs.
To improve the Officer Stations, it would help to only have the currently readied wessel's crew shown here, and as someone pointed out earlier, it would be nice if operational skills were distinct from non-operational ones.
A button to click for shuttle, or non-ready ships would be great.
I'll add a request for being able to tap into the chat system from here, not necessarily ESD and all those lovely conversations, but certainly the Fleet Chat.
I really like what you're doing with this gateway!
As others have mentioned my captain is not showing any ground equipment. Also her traits are missing.
My bridge officers also show no traits.
I realize this is a trivial detail but there seems to be a strange translation issue on the main screen after selecting a character. Under "Last logged in" there is a time value in braces like "(11 hours ago)". The whole rest of the gateway is in English but that small piece is in German (my local language). I don't know what your intentions are concerning localization but I just wanted to point out that in German the phrase would be "vor 11 Stunden" (aka "ago 11 hours").
As I said, I really like the gateway. What I would like to see are options to do things (especially in the fleet section):
Accessing ingame fleet chat
Adding fleet events
changing personel equipment
changing ship fitting
manage duty officers
Another thing I'd like to suggest is a way to make a crew "family photo" like many users have in their signatures.
