Campaign Stalking

I did a bad thing. I was reading the Eve Online Forums.  I broke myself of the habit after Eve Vegas last year and now I barely visit them.  I do want to start going back to the new player's area but I think I will restrict myself.  Anyway, the reason I have been reading the forums is for the CSM stuff.  I said I'd go over it more in depth and try to expand my voting from 1 to something more then 1.

It will be nice once CCP releases the official voting stuff and the threads can be trimmed of the troll posts vs the real posts.  Regardless, I am wading through it and trying to see who and what I like.  Discussing it in chat, someone said, "There is only one low sec candidate?" The answer appears to be "Yes" so far.

I was rather surprised, as I flipped through the now almost overflowing list of people who are running for the CSM to see a complaint thread about bounties.  The title was misleading.  It is called Retribution for Retribution.  However, it was a bounty complaint thread where the author is going to biomas his accounts during Fanfest because he does not like having WANTED sign across his name.  And that is it.  He knows he is not a special target in high sec.  He seems to understand the game mechanics   He is just horribly offended by the wanted sticker and feels that he must biomas his accounts to be heard.

However, I waded past the drama bomb that post entailed and wandered across Unforgiven Storm's CSM post.  He has a blog as well.  One that he has been writing in.  I am biased towards that I will admit.  CSM7 was rather podcast heavy as I understand it which is why I never saw or heard anything they were doing.  CSM8 may be the same, people seem to love pod casts.  I like a candidate that is willing to reach out with words.

The shallow stuff that no one should make a decision off of but people often do anyway because humans is nice as well. He has a cool user name.

Do I have a second CSM candidate?  Maybe?  I'll keep reading but so far I'm actually okay with it.  My stalking is returning positive vibes so far.

I'm up in the air if this pick more people thing will be good or bad.  Will it turn away people who do not want to run through all the candidates or will people just randomly pick?  As I somewhat, kind of understand, the new system will shed 'random' votes for the most part.

But for something that is so soon there has not been much build up. I don't understand why. I guess they do not want to burn people out to soon.

Taboo Questions

Let us talk contentious things. What about high sec? When will CCP pay attention to high sec and those that cannot spend their time in dangerous space?  This is somewhat how the day started, sparked by a question from an anonymous poster. Speaking about high sec, in general, is one of the hardest things to do. The amount of emotion wrapped around the topic is staggering. There are people who want to stay in high sec and nothing will make them leave. There are people who want no one to stay in high sec and wish to cripple everything about it. There are people in between, but the two extremes are large and emotional in discussion. My belief is simple. If a player wishes to live in high sec, I do not believe that anything will make them leave that is not their own curiosity. I do not believe that we can beat people out of high sec or destroy it until they go to other areas of space. Sometimes, I think we forget that every player has the option to not log back in. We want them to log

CSMX - Post #20

Summer is here and CCP is very much out of the office. Sion made a good point in wondering why everyone leaves Iceland when it has its best weather. What it means is that all is mostly quiet on the dev blog front. There are some things happening but the dev blogs and news announcements have not yet happened. The skill points were delivered on Tuesday  so yay for unallocated skill points. Over in CSM chat, there has been a lot of back and forth about sov and measuring the impact and success of things so far. I can say that CCP and the CSM are watching it. The pros and cons are coming in pretty hot and heavy. Some are being looked at now. Some have to see how things are going and if and how the direction needs to be tweaked. In my corner, I'm starting to gather things together. The summit is in seven or so weeks. In between then and now I need to gather up my question list and write down a few topics of discussion. I'm starting now because I have personal vacation at the end

And back again

My very slow wormhole adventure continues almost as slowly as I am terminating my island in Animal Crossing.  My class 3 wormhole was not where I wanted to be. I was looking for a class 1 or 2 wormhole. I dropped my probes and with much less confusion scanned another wormhole. I remembered to dscan and collect my probes as I warped to the wormhole. I even remembered to drop a bookmark, wormholes being such good bookmark locations later. My wormhole told me it was a route into low sec. I tilted my head. How circular do our adventures go. Today might be the day to die and that too is okay. That mantra dances in the back of my head these days. Even if someone mocks me, what does that matter? Fattening someone's killboard is their issue not mine. So I jumped through and found myself in Efa in Khanid, tucked on the edge of high sec and null sec. What an interesting little system.  Several connections to high sec. A connection to null sec. This must be quite the traffic system.    I am f
