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.

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

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

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
