RIVERINI for CSM 8

First post

For years I have enjoyed the game through Eve News24 and have the honor of being part of what I call “fun multipliers” of the big EVE Online and offline experience. Today the time has come for me to step forward and serve as a bridge between the players and the developers in a effort to make EVE Online a better game for us all.

I won’t write walls of texts this time, I’ll just keep it simple:

Why I have decided to run for the CSM8:


- First and foremost I love EVE Online, DUST 514 and I want to see it improve.
- To bring a fresh and different face to the Council of Stellar Management.
- I have extensive experience interacting with the player base and deep understanding of the inner workings of the game and the interplayer relationship.
- I have an understanding of the internal culture within CCP Games which will be useful during my tenure.
- Whilst being just 28 years old, I have 14 years of professional experience in the design and creative field, which will translate to an out of the box approach to issues.
- I have no “pre-conceptions” of how the game should be played, I understand that there exist different type of plays which fits to different kind of players.
- I am in debt with those who believed in my platform last year and I wish to deliver.

About myself
A 28 years old creative / art director for an internet television portal for latin america, I also run a myriad of information related sites which include Eve News24 (the only english lang).

A few years ago I decided to bring the vision of a different offline experience to the rest of the EVE Online players, this effort has certainly paid off. There is so much I can do to enhance the player experience without having a more direct contact with CCP Games. In short, I have decided to run because I enjoy the game and believe I can work together with other delegates to make it better.

Endorsement
For this reason, I ask your help to endorse me for this CSM 8 Election.

You were impressive during the interview, Riverini.

I think I will add you to my ballot of five.

I don't have an unnecessary hatred for the guy, just because he runs a news site that happens to be biased towards the CFC.

I can like the CFC and Riverini. They aren't mutually exclusive. Twisted

I can't find it in me to endorse a candidate who published a botting guide on his news site.

Not to mention his extreme willingness to let his biases inform his relationship with the truth.

Not recommended. We can do better than this for the CSM.

Given the amount of vitriol direct at Rivereini and his site by large parts of the EvE community I was genuinely surprised to see this post. I was not expecting to see him run for CSM.
From a personal perspective I could not endorse someone who lacks objectivity, from the articles I have read on EN24 he has a very subjective view of the political landscape of EvE. This does not bode well for a CSM candidate.

Not voting, it is clear he will be unable to work with the other CSM because his incredible fixation to some of the player organisations.

Also last time his agenda was more or less "Panties in Stations" WiS crap, I doubt much has changed.

Riverini can you actually write for us in detail what you think is going well in the game, what needs fixing and in what priority.

Because frankly I have no idea what you stand for and I am to lazy to listen to a pod cast.

Any spelling, grammatical and punctuation errors are because frankly, I don't care!!

It's not so much the bias, it's more said site's complete lack of regard for facts and the English language.

Both of those are quite important considering the CSM rep's job is 99% communication.

Would you please explain CCP's internal culture to me? I would find that to be very useful.

Ok I just listened to your crossing Zebras interview and I still have no idea how you would like the game to change specifically.

I heard conflict drivers and bug fixes but that was about all.

Can you be more specific as to a vision of the game?

Any spelling, grammatical and punctuation errors are because frankly, I don't care!!

The first thing that needs implementing is a 'dropping da panties button'.

That's the only thing I remember from his last CSM candidacy.

Will your official CSM posts be as grammatically incorrect as your EN24 posts, or will you get somebody competent to write them for you?

Will the issues you bring up be as well researched as your EN24 articles?

I guess if Mittens ran again then you couldn't vote for him becuase he's " someone who lacks objectivity, from the articles I have read on EN24The Mittani DoT COM he has a very subjective view of the political landscape of EvE."

While I wouldn't have done the same, I don't think Riv can be blamed: CCP has shown on multiple occasions that it stays blind to certain problems until pressured by publicity to do something about it.
