[18:07:12] Mike Azariah > Operation Magic School Bus will be handing out free fitted ships in gallente career systems today, starting with Clellinon VI - Moon 11 - Center for Advanced Studies School where I am for the next ten min. Watch localMike runs a program where he gives fitted starter ships to new players. He also has permission to advertise. It grew out of the rookie chat time from last fall. He's been quite productive with it. Seeing him scolded amused me. Especially by someone who is in rookie chat by choice. Six months ago that would have been a big deal. Now, there are people who inhabit it to help and seeing one scold another just makes me shake my head. Of course, I got scolded next for asking a question across two different lines, so some people are just scolders I guess.
[18:07:43] Aranea > Mike Azariah just to remember, you do know that advertising is forbidden in here?
I've had more then one discussion of late of these community changes. Its not universal. Heaven forbid. But something in the last two years has caused a new type of gameplay to grow and mature. Where playing Eve becomes an even more complex social experiment. It is one that I guess I am involved in. Not the CSM thing but the market.
Which is what I started writing about. Not a thoughtful post. Oh no. More a, "Oh why me moan," type of post. You see, moving that alt cancelled all of her active orders. A few hundred of them. I forgot about that part. And they have to be relisted. Also, I haven't done any restocking in a week. I've just finished my long work week and my short work week has become catchup week.
But instead, today, I dissolved into a puddle. I'll try to improve my coherency by the end of the day. I have jumps to make and thing to move.
But for now.. rookie chat is more fun.
