Absolutely, and I do proudly fly the checkered racing flag above my apartment complex! Big smile

But that's not the topic of discussion.

Firstly, I would like to have a proper forum post to reference, so that when someone is saying "I think it's a good thing that CCP gives out special prizes to certain event organisers, and yes this constitutes some form of favoritism, etc., etc.", they have something substantial to link that clearly shows CCP's standpoint on the issue.

Secondly, concerning the actual flag on a roof, which is a completely different topic: Yes, I can fly a flag above my own roof, but can I offer to fly someone else's flag above my roof as an incentive for something in-game?

Can I use flag-on-roof as a prize in one of my races? Is this OK?

What if instead of having the flag made and flying it above my roof, I have it made, and then ship it to the winner, so he can own it and fly it above his own roof? Is that OK?

What if instead of commissioning the flag to be made, I just Paypal him the money so he can have it made himself. Would that be an acceptable prize?

If the money I sent him as a prize for winning my event was not even earmarked for flag-flying, would that change anything?

What if I offer an iTunes gift card as a prize? (This is an actual example from a contest hosted by one of those EVE-related radio stations a few years back. The prizes were a GTC code (not a PLEX, just the number off the back of a card), some ISK, and a $20 iTunes gift card redeemable in the US iTunes store.)

This subject is very complicated, and there are many, possibly conflicting, precedents from the past ten years.

I feel that whenever a representative makes a vague or dismissive statement on any subject, it only makes things worse, and that's why I strive to encourage these fine gentlemen such as Mr. Goliath to make clear, concise, public posts about these difficult questions, no matter if the answer that comes out is something I agree with or disagree with.

So far this year things are going very well in this regard, and I hope we can keep this trend going. It hasn't always been so easy to get a straight answer out of a rep.

by clicking the link in his sig, i discovered that in addition to apparently posting in event threads requesting detailed clarification on some obscure aspect of the rules, incredibly involving something not even remotely contentious and requiring only basic reading skills to comprehend, he runs some kind of eve race or something?

eve racing being largely a) not very interesting and b) ********, i stopped reading.

So if anyone was wondering about the incubation time of the FanPest, it's about 1 week or so, as a ton of people are out of the office (yours truly included) with the flu. It's delaying our ability to get the results of this to you guys, but we should have it by the end of the week.

Sorry for the delays, but the office is sadly dying.

That's one hell of a office wide hang over ;)

Hope you get better, all of you.

CCP Greyscale: As to starbases, we agree it's pretty terrible, but we don't want to delay the entire release just for this one factor.

It's probably worth mentioning that we did some quick kb checking from Sunday, and we were topping the table for this event. It's possible we missed some mails but unless we hadn't noticed somebody good had moved their operations to lowsec, we are fairly confident we've got this.

General tinfoil hat brigade consensus for the delay is CCP marketing team are desperately trying to work out how they can manipulate the rules to avoid having to announce they are flying URINE alliance's flag over their offices for a month.
