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

Conflicted

Halycon said it quite well in a comment he left about the skill point trading proposal for skill point changes. He is conflicted in many different ways. So am I. Somedays, I don't want to be open minded. I do not want to see other points of view. I want to not like things and not feel good about them and it be okay. That is something that is denied me for now. I've stated my opinion about the first round of proposals to trade skills. I don't like them. That isn't good enough. I have to answer why. Others do not like it as well. I cannot escape over to their side and be unhappy with them. I am dragged away and challenged about my distaste.  Some of the people I like most think the change is good. Other's think it has little meaning. They want to know why I don't like it. When this was proposed at the CSM summit, I swiveled my chair and asked if they realized that they were undoing the basic structure that characters and game progression worked under. They said th

Maybe one day!

It was a random question that I knew the answer of. I have 'Sugar' as a keyword so it highlights green and catches my attention. This made me chuckle. Maybe I'll have to go and see what it is like to shoot a ship one day? I could not help but smile. Basi suggested that I put my Titan killmail in my bio and assert my badassery. I figure, naw. It was a roll of the dice that landed me that kill mail. It doesn't define me as a person. Bios are interesting. The idea of a biography is a way to personalize your account. You can learn a lot about a person by what they choose to put in their bio
