CSM: Running for Office: Week Four

This was a week of waiting, making for a short post!

No official election rules are posted yet. I’ll admit that I am itching with anticipation. We have six weeks to Fanfest. People who are following the election cycle are very interested in the voting process. Some have voted before and some have not. This interest in the voting is good.

This week has held more interest on my forum thread. Ripard Teg laid out some questions to some candidates. I wound up writing a reply and a longer blog post in response. Questions directed to the CSM come in all forms and flavors. Questions such as Ripard’s, that focus on aspects of morality and culture are fascinating. It is also an understandable question to ask someone who is stepping forward to represent the community.

I will admit that I’m having fun meeting people. I’m trying to sync up with a few groups and my channel gets a steady trickle of people who want to check me out. It has lead to a lot of interesting conversations and debates about Eve and some fantastic recipe ideas for dinner. I’m a firm believer that chat is about chat and I like to cook. It turns out that a lot of other Eve players do as well so we share our menus and come up with suggestions. It has a side effect of relaxing some who venture in and don’t want to step into a fitting discussion. I’m not scary and I’d never send someone away who might have my next creative meal idea just waiting for me. Dinner PvP is a go!

Next week is both my interview with Cap Stable and the VA/MD/DC meetup. I’m also still waiting for the final word to trickle down about Eve Vegas.

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
