I've bugged this but it is never mentioned nor fixed so I'm beginning to think that this is something that only affects me. Is that so? Does anyone else experience the same problem?

Problem:

In fleet settings there are the following options
  • Create new Fleet event
  • Take over Fleet event from lower Fleet rank
  • Take over Fleet event from equal Fleet rank
  • Remove Fleet event

These settings doesn't do anything. I as a Fleet leader have all permissions listed above. But I can't do the second to fourth options.

If someone make an event and sets it to repeat, then due to inactivity eventually gets removed from the fleet, no one can edit, take over or remove the event. You're stuck with it for ever.

An other bug is that if you set an event to repeat and then cancel it, it will never go away.

Not forgetting the problem with the event time that keeps changing without anyone changing it. Add one minute subtract one minute.


These problems needs to be fixed ASAP.


And when you're at it put in a new feature that can be activated with a check box: "Announce the start of this event in the following subscribed channel" then you get to pick from a list just like the one in the chat box.

Also these sub-options should be added to the UI: "Announce the start of this event ahead of time" INPUT TIME INCREMENT : INPUT NUMBER OR TIMES

Only send these reminders to those who have RSVP (accept/maybe).

This way the event can be announced in the specified subscribed chat channel two hours before it starts, one hour before it starts and when it starts. So those signed up to the channel gets the chance to sign up or those signed up gets reminded to get ready.


I find the game bug system and support to be very strange. File a bug report, nothing happens. Contact support with a problem, they usually refile it as a bug report and then nothing happens. One would think that the support would have access to everything in the game including my account so they can for instance go in to my bank and delete an item that I can't remove, or open a mail I can open, or enter a fleet event calendar and clean it up. Apparently they don't seem to be able to do any of these things. I find that very strange.

i've reported this a long time ago, and nothing is ever done.

We as fleet dont use the ingame event calendar anymore until they fixes it.
(We use now our forum calendar for raids and meetings)

i really hope that they acknowledged this as a (major) bug

I full concur with the OP on this.

I have currently have a number of events in the damn fleet calendar I can't get rid off. It's quite annoying cause all it says is cancelled.

I have the same issue...

I've attempted to report the bug several times, Yet my tickets "magically" dissapear each time. Wich is odd..

I have at last 15 repeating events sitting in my calendar, wich I can not remove because the character that created it, has been deleted it.

The bug where you can't take over events from members that are no longer part of the fleet has been fixed for Season 4 (and should be on Tribble right now). The repeating canceled events not disappearing I'm still looking at though.

Talking about Fleet UI stuff, is it possible to move the @handle to its own column so you can sort it alphabetically?

I agree that that would be helpfull. In my fleet we promote all characters to the same fleet rank and trying to soft through 400+ names looking for the same @handle is very time consuming.

Indeed. When you don't know someone's character name, but know @handle, sifting through almost 500 names, it is always the last one in the list.

This change would be appreciated by all Fleet Officers I should think

The Fleet tools are so lacking and poorly implemented that they are virtually worthless. There are several threads discussing this and needed changes. It appears to be very low priority.
