Rather than Jita, how about back in New Eden, with the EVE Gate in the background. Kinda symbolising that these players have "returned" to Earth.

Confirming Chribba for 70 years old? Shocked

CCP could let the players vote on it.

Or make a special status for peoples toons that are confirmed Deceased IRL that everyone can access.

This is something dooable without having to worry about values of people etc.

Human life has so much value no matter how small or large others may think of a person that there is no way to attribute a value to it. Human life just has so much value that it cannot be quantified. Some monsters have tried too in history but there is a reason people remember them as monsters.

I say the circumstances dictate that a remembrance of the man is in order personally.

Everything in EVE is a trap.

And if it isn't, it's your job to make it a trap...:)

You want to know what immorality in EVE Online looks like? Look no further than Ripard "Jester" Teg.

Chribba is the Chuck Norris of EVE.

I will only support a system name change and/or statue if it is done for every single eve player who has died so far and future players. We all help shape this game.

To be fair, I think that this thread, which I was just linked back to in game during discussion over Sean pretty much closes the argument on monuments within Eve for people who've passed away in real life.

I'm personally of the opinion that if any monument is to be created within Eve for anyone, it should be player funded, player created and player maintained, such is the way of the sandbox.

What makes him objectively more significant than any other EVE player to have died?

How about you guys treat all death with respect and don't harrass those grieving.


Interesting...

Someone earlier thought it was bad to judge individuals on their actions or behavior, but it's OK to judge entire groups of people based on the actions of other members of the group? I think not.

Actually, it is *this* type of thinking that leads to the violence that started the protests, riots and deaths. It's this type of thinking that starts most wars.

Ascribing the actions of one to the entire group he belongs to, and transferring your hatred for one onto the others of the group is at the root of the problem.

Two wrongs don't make a right. But the reputation that goons have built is not out of accident. They (as in goons) thrive on the grief of others. So much so they've gone out of their way to ridicule victims of suicide attacks and death of other people through their silly "jihad" campaigns, mockeries, or other distasteful foolishness. And it may be the case that not all goons participate in these "events". But if they're going to wear the "goon" tag they need to understand the perception it brings on them as a group. the same way, say a *** member, needs to understand the perception that is brought on him by merely being a member of the group.

With that said, what happend to Sean is very tragic and unfortunate and I can only hope that his family and loved ones are able to cope and carry on quickly, especially his children. This community has come together to show its support of a fallen and fellow player, which on its own is quite amazing. A monument doesn't sound like a bad idea, although renaming a system, in my opinion, may be setting up an unfair precedent.

Well said. I suggest everyone to read up on the full history of a group and the kind of activities they do before joining them.

Maybe!

Besides, I think the best monument to a fallen EVE player is an Officer fit Titan wreck on a low sec gate Cool



While I like almost all the idees ppl have suggested I think it has to be accessible to all (most). I think it should be in High Sec. An intact Titan that is invulnerable on a High Sec gate could be real nice. Maybe the same race as which VR was from?

I did also like the idea that someone suggest earlier; that all players that pass away while having an active account should be listed on the memorial description.

Its one of the things that sets us apart from animals is that we remember and pay respects to our dead.
