Xander,

What is your position on CCP taking in-game disciplinary action against players for things they do outside of the game on privately-owned blogs, message boards, and Teamspeak servers?



I think this is a question that needs to be asked of evey single CSM candidate. Having been personally verbally abused by xander on TS id like to think that he is of the opinion (like every other rational thinking human here) that what happens on private communication methods should have no impact on your Eve character.

Also in reply to progod, im kind of being sarcastic (He is egotistical though). Im very thankfull to Xander and Jeg for making one of the best podcasts out there and keeping me interested in the game, even if the music is **** these days. If anyone has the balls to confront CCP on things and wlak the line reporting it to the players then its Xander.

Yeah I'd really like to know everyone's position, as it's one of my main issues right now. It just seems to me that the "A question for all candidates" threads don't go very far, so Ive asked several of the candidates I already have some interest in.

Was waiting for someone to ask me this one... I've actually been speaking with Ripard on and off about it a lot.

So one thing I will say is that for me, E1 clearly overstepped the mark morally. It was a wretched and deplorable thing to do and I believe he firmly stepped over my personal moral line.

That caveat aside, I worry that CCP has set themselves a very dangerous precedent here. I do not think they should be policing out of client / official forum / Eve Gate activities. What if someone ganked me and I sent them a really abusive DM on twitter calling them every name under the sun, really nasty, vitriolic stuff? Does CCP have jurisdiction there? What if it transpires the account is fairly new and is called @xander_phoena rather than @midi2304 (my actual account)?

I worry that CCP has opened up a can of worms here and that this decision is going to land with egg on their face. Am I pleased E1 was banned? Yes. Should CCP have actually done so though? Probably not. Like I say, I think this could land them in a lot more trouble in the long run. I sincerely hope I am wrong. I need to be able to call Varg a ***** on TS whenever the opportunity arises after all ;)

Thank you for that. Honestly, "the fiasco" as I'm calling it raises 2 seperate issues. 1 is the uneven application of discipline to some people for breaking the TOS but not others, which I have a REAL problem with, and 2, CCP's delving into our private, out of game lives, which I have an even bigger issue with.

Not sure at what position yet, but your answer has landed you a spot on my ballot, and it will be a short list. Thank you for being a voice of reason.

It is known that you spend time working offshore- a few weeks at a time. I don't think you play or do podcasts when you are away.

Would this affect your ability to serve as a CSM member?

I already answered this in my OP but thank you for the question:

I think it only fair in the interests of full disclosure that I also discuss my own work arrangements here. I am employed in the North Sea oil industry and work on what is roughly a 'two weeks on, two weeks off' schedule. When I am offshore, I have access to Skype text channels, twitter, email and forums however generally the internet far out at sea is not fast enough for voice or video communications. Also, whilst offshore I may not be available with immediate notice. The flip side of this particular coin is that I am ostensibly on holiday six months of the year and able to devote huge amounts of time to the CSM process. A perfect example of this would be the aforementioned CSM8 Election Interviews carried out over a period of six weeks in 2013 but were effectively carried out in a three week period while I was actually at home.

I have discussed with several prominent members of CSM8 whether or not they believe my work schedule is likely to cause an issue with me standing for CSM9 and they have all stated that based on how the CSM interacts with CCP in a practical nature and due to my own personal and proven work ethic, they do not see it as an issue in the slightest. I do not feel it reasonable to ask for your vote without making you fully aware of my situation however.

I had the opportunity to sit down for a 1 on 1 interview with the fabulous fellows of Cap Stable. I was very tired but enjoyed it massively:

I'd like to reinforce the points about Xanders 'availability'

One of the qualities I have looked for, in choosing whom to vote for is work ethic, which Xander has proven to have both in the CZ empire but more specifically in the csm8 interviews.

Another is passion. Does the person show that they are not a flash in the pan but an continually active and caring member of new eden. Again, Xander has proven himself in the regard many times over.

On that basis I would still recommend Xander for the position if he was only available one week in three because when he is 'ON' he works so damn hard.

Availability is nice but it means nothing if you do not do much while you are available. Passion without a work ethic to back it up is just armchair quarterbacking.

Xander has shown that he has the passion and the work ethic to put the ideas forward and keep pushing.

He is on my list and I recommend that he should be on your as well.

I appeared on a Declarations of War CSM9 panel last night hosted by Aleks and Turtle to discuss 0.0, PvP and Power Projection. Had a lot of fun - thanks to the DoW team for putting it together. Joining me were Angry Mustache, Gorski Car and Psianh Auvyander.

Hello.

Currently the Serpentis are the only pirate faction in the game that don't have a rated 6/10 and 9/10 DED complex available to be run. These sites have been on the "coming soon" list for quite a few years, but no further news or information has been released. Would you be willing to request that CCP introduce these sites to the game so that areas like syndicate that rely on running sites as the main form of income can continue to grow and prosper?

It's a very good question. If you go on Mynnna's thread, you will see this confirmation from CCP that this is something they are actively looking at. In other news...

I had said elsewhere in this thread that I would be endorsing Xander, and earlier today I published my recommendations for CSM 9. Xander featured very highly.

I look forward to working with him in the coming CSM term.
