# 1 More from the Captains Database
09-24-2010, 08:51 PM
I believe the database needs to be more inclusive then what it is at current. An Awesome thread by Anazonda, http://forums.startrekonline.com/sho...t=officer+info is really well done and along the lines as to what I would like to see eventually.

Additionally, more could be added to the captainís database.
I for one would love to be able to show off my ships, accolades officers and equipment! Something like

http://i813.photobucket.com/albums/z...aseOfficer.png

http://i813.photobucket.com/albums/z...abaseShips.png

Maybe even have assignments shown? I feel like a more comprehensive look at my characters would be more fun when looking someone up. Maybe even a hot link from the Forums to the Captains Database.

What does the community think?

I don't mind showing off my current ship and officers. Provided showing such info is a selectable option that has to manually be turned off. In other words defaulted to a privacy setting.

But im totally against the parts where you show off gear or equipment. STO as it is, is very gear causal. Lets not make it into a game of gear snobbery when there is no need for it. Besides gear can be swapped out so quickly it would be a database nigh mare tying to captains page reasonablly up to date. Its just headaches that dont need to be implemented.

Yeah they could add a preferences like how you can hide a profile in the database now to limit access.

I think of the database as a reference not a "gear showcase" for snobs. The gear in sto is not complex and not really hard to come by so displaying it in such a matter really should be that big of an issue.

This could help fleets in determining someone activeness in the game, a good way to display achievements and accomplishments as well as the BOff exchange ability.

I can see what your saying but I don't feel it would be as bad as that.

They would need to do more then what is available now. Hiding your profile hides very little. Only your captains log and biography end up hidden. When an option is labeled "hide profile" you'd like to believe it would actually hide the entire profile, Instead of just parts of it.

Activeness can currently be viewed via the captains log. The moment gear or accolades becomes a tool for fleets to select candidates instead of the unthinkable act of actually spending time playing with them and getting to know them directly. Is the same moment the captains page stops becoming a novel personal trophy shelf and becomes a source of snobbery.

I think this is cause you still need to be able to identify a player so it can't hide you entirely. But if you did hide your profile this way the only thing that would be visible then would be your name class and rank.

Awesome. Would love to see all those ideas. And might I go out on a limb and suggest enabling member comments on the page too?
