Offical Candidate for CSM9

I just received my e-mail from CCP saying that I qualified to become an official candidate for CSM9. One hurdle jumped and a few more on the path. I think I can keep jumping just fine.

New blog layout to celebrate.

P.S. I received a note that the new blog layout was not liked. I'm more than happy to tweak and things like colors and shades being to much or not enough are important for reading. I do like changing it around. It is the artsy in me. I'm happy to accept feedback about it to a reasonable extent. :)


  1. I'll be a bit of a one-issue voter, and for whatever it's worth, you passed my hurdle, too. You will have all my votes and my good wishes for success.

  2. Huzza!

    I'm not done with my voting list, but you are in the top 3 :)

    1. Thank you, closer to the top is more better!

  3. A friend of mine told me to go read your CSM thread, and I'm so glad I did. You've got all three of my votes. I really hope you make it!

    1. Thank you! Questions or thoughts or whatever I'm happy to chat :) If you like podcasts I have interviews done too :)

  4. Oh no! My favorite blog looks different, I can't handle change. *Crawls into a corner to shake vehemently*

    1. Oh no hugs! Think of it like me dying my hair! Just something new! Curls?

  5. Did I go to the right blog?! *double checks her bookmark*

    I'm glad you passed muster and I'll definitely have you on my ballot! Maybe once I get out of the stupid hospital and to a computer that can actually run EVE I'll drop by your chat room! I keep meaning too. :)

  6. Congrats on the officialness of your candidacy. I like the new layout, ignore the haters. :) // Abavus

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 that t…

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 of A…

Passion is so circular

I should dust the blog and delete the spam to leaks in through googles not so bad filters.

I log in from time to time to check my mail and see some of my friends. But, of lat I've commented on a few things in r/eve and it makes me think. Not of the impassioned things that I once thought about as I played the game but of the passions of the game.

I have the gift of several eve players are parts of my life. And we talk, but rarely about Eve. Most of them have left to some extent or another but the relationship that we gained is still strong. I do not hate Eve but I am still exhausted with Eve, even now when I am so far out. It seems to be CSM summit time and the anger and race that sits atop everything related to the game is still there.

It is interesting in its exhaustive existence. The passion is there and the player reaction continues to go full circle. Some things are still said the same way over, and over, and over again. Is it love? Is it hate? Or is it just stimulation that i…
