Open Q&A with Sugar Kyle: June 9th at 1500 & 2200

My Eve University chat is confirmed for Sunday. I decided to run it at 1500 and again at  2200. Immediately I was asked if I plan to talk for four hours. No. It is two one hour sessions. The goals to cover time zones. I know that I am always irritated that everything happens outside of my time zone. My goal is to see how well attended these are and go from there.

Here is the link to the details! Neville wrote a much better summary than I did.

If you want to attend make sure you have downloaded mumble and set it up. Directions are here. It is open so no log in and API checks and all of that stuff.

Somehow this qualifies me as a guest lecturer! Poor Eve Uni.

The goal of said talk is really just to be accessible about the CSM. We can talk Kronos. We can talk about me. We can talk about low sec. We can talk about markets. We can talk about whatever. I want to create an open floor question and answer. One of the negatives to pod casts or Eve radio is that people may listen but they don't feel as if they get to personally engage their CSM representative. Hopefully this will help with that. Sunday will be the trial run for what I hope to do monthly.

Why Eve Uni coms? For one Eve Uni has the coms to support a lot of people. For another they are very neutral. Their format also allows people to talk to me if they don't want to type questions or type questions if they don't want to talk.

I want to be reachable. Talking isn't my focus like it is for the naturally gifted like Mike and Corbexx who hop onto anyone's podcast and go. My comfort is with my writing. How ever I promised that I would push myself outside of my comfort zone and reach out to people.

Hopefully this works!

I'm more than happy to do these on week days as well. Feedback when it comes to times and where in the week they fall would be appreciated. I decided to start with Sunday because it was safe being a weekend day. As always, if you don't tell me what you want I can't try to make it happen.

  1. Your "link to the details" opens a picture of a fitting for a Badger. Just FYI.

    1. That should fix it. The badger details are another post I'll write this week. :)

  2. So for people who can't find your EVE bio and chat channel.

    1. Some people want face time? Or voice time? Hearing me say what I type may work better for them.

Memoirs - Part One: Virtual Worlds

Virtual Realities: Memoirs of an internet spaceship politician by Sugar Kyle CSM9, CSMX
This is where it really started. The day I lost my mind.

I never told anyone how long I had been debating my run for the ninth CSM. The thought started to circle in the back of my thoughts in November. I was back home after a sucessful Eve Vegas. I had met a few people. My notes from the presentations and round tables had gone over very well. I felt useful, comfortable, and excited that I was a member of the community. I belonged and I cared about this thing that I belonged to. That thing was the community of Eve Online.
Eve Vegas of 2013 was when I found out that a conversation I had been fortunate enough to have with CCP Masterplan at Fanfest of that same year, had sparked enough interest to gain developer attention. At Eve Vegas I learned that they would be working on ideas based off of the premise that I had presented. Only days later, a developer posted to the Offical Eve Online forums about i…

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…

The Charm of the Familar

With a few picked up a shifts at work due to the holidays. I pondered logging in but I didn't have the energy to do so. Being able to say no to logging in is pleasant. Just as my youngest puppy interrupts me every fifteen minutes to pee, going to sleep instead of staying up is also pleasant. I had a lot of short slept nights when I was active in a corporation.

My next plan has been to learn how to scan again. The new map is in and I need to refresh my scanning skills. My hold is full of probes. My ship appears to be reasonably set up. I remembered how to hit my F key to cloak. In fact, I hit it a bit to fast. I need to get the ebb and flow of the tic back down.

I am also rusty in my paranoia. I idly switch to another window to research breadbowls and the soup I want to make later. Then I remember I am sitting, decloaked, off of a gate somewhere. Whoops. I did figure out a breadbowl recipe and soup as well.

The question was where do I relearn to scan? I need somewhere off the beate…
