I rely HEAVILY on the STO Mail and Friends list when I am out-of-game to send E-Mail and communicate with Fleetmates.

I think this "website maintenance" is SHOCKING , counterproductive :frown:, and unnecessary .

I am ALWAYS in favor of gaining new powers, but NEVER in favor of losing ANY powers...

Where can I now find the links to the STO Friends List and Webmail? These are imperative for use when one cannot be in the game to communicate with the player base and a "must have" for many of us especially since in-game E-Mail is limited to 2048 chars and many E-Mails need a little more space.

I have explored the new site, but have not been able to find those pages for mail and friends.

PLEASE CONSIDER THESE FUNCTIONS AS SACROSANCT AND BRING THEM BACK.

Well, I think I am EXTRA-screwed here because I took the plunge and linked my Cryptic Account to a PWE Account. :frown: My "Display Name" is different than my in-game display name because PWE doesn't allow periods, so the PWE Mail System has NOTHING to do with my in-game Mail System.

This is pretty serious for Fleet Leaders and others that communicate via E-Mail with many in the game on a regular basis. :frown:

If a DEV or Member of Mgt. sees this thread, PLEASE seriously consider restoring this access.

Could it be considered to build an Android Tablet and iPad App that allows one to check and send in-game mail, friends lists, possibly other stats ?

Now this is an outstanding idea... I am nowhere near tech-savy enough to do such a thing, but maybe someone out there is?

I gave up on that idea when they took away the ability for anyone to look up anyone's character using the Cryptic STO Website. That was a valuable tool for Fleet Leaders.

well taking powers to acces the chars infos or the ingame mail access through the website is very contaproductive .. i mean i checked the mails before i logged into the game to sort-out the "item sold" mails. this must be done very manually by deleting mails 1-by-1 instead of the previous through the website accessible function "delete selected mails"

its defenetly a deficit

I ran across another thread where it was stated by PWEbranflakes that they were aware of this difficulty for players and would be considering returning the in-game E-Mail to the web, but had no idea how hard that would be or how long that will take. I find this daunting.

All I can say is - log into the Champs site and use those resources until they can give them back to us on the STO Site. I PRAY they do not nerf or kill functionality completely there - before they can restore them to us on the STO Site.
