Copy paste text format export and import bookmarks would be useful for sharing in a chat channel or mail with contacts, as an alternative to a public share.
Something similar to fittings copy and paste structure.
An added benefit of this is the ability to backup my bookmarks externally, just as we can do with fittings (there is no tool that I am aware that allows me to do this on Linux via ESI and the ESI API is read only, no import function).
Yes, but that is exactly the point. NOW you have to be in the fleet or in the corp to be able to hire someone. If read characters can just be posted by anyone in a chat, you’ll be number one on the ganker guest list pretty quickly just because someone in the Belt doesn’t like you. And corp bookmarks I think even have a two minute delay.
No, we don’t have to be in a fleet, we can just have a public BM share. However, I want to be able to share it in text form over a chat channel, such as #Scanning. There is an imposed 3 online share folders and I want to also have ad-hoc sharing with chat.
Using your arguments we could say exporting and importing fittings is helping gankers with fitting.
How do you think we get Eve-Scout // Thera bookmarks?
No this has nothing to do with fear. Ganking is part of Eve. Anyone who doesn’t play along with that is wrong here. But that has something to do with game mechanics. CCP decided that back then and not without reason. And I think it was the reason that gankers had it too easy.
It has nothing to do with game mechanics, it won’t do anything to change what is already possible, except just make it a text format. The ESI uses JSON and Text format already. See here EVE Swagger Interface
I don’t think that is the reason. Eve has changed a lot in the last few years to attract new players and keep them up to date. I think it’s good that you think about it and have wishes but not everything is so easy to implement or even good for everyone.
