In the end defenders should want to fight. Even outnumbered and or outgunned, there should always be a way to engage the enemy at some capacity. Even if you still lose. Bombers originally (or so I thought) were meant to be a tool for those outnumbered had something to fight back when massively outnumbered. But, it just turned into another tool for the large blocs to use to oppress small non-bloc entities.

While there should be different things that fall under home field advantage, nothing should ever enable AFK empires. If they are not there using the space, there should be nothing for them to use to keep a very small group, even just a corp of 5 pilots, from taking it from them without them knowing about it.

Use it or lose it.

I've restored a couple of posts into this thread, and edited a few more.

While criticism is fine, keep away from personal attacks, or your posteriors will be handed to you under the forum rules.

Keep it clean and civil people.

Are you sure you want to take on the responsibility of a CSM. From what I understand, they tend to lose allot of playtime ingame.

Still you would be an excellent candidate.

Yaay!!!!

I am perfectly fine with this.

Marlona,
I've really enjoyed your blog, your substantive posts on the forums, and, way back when, your flight of a thousand rifters (that was one of my first large fleet fights I experienced as a new player, and one of the only events I didn't die immediately in!). So, thanks! +1
I guess my main concerns for every CSM candidate are whether they will be able to 1) stay professional and 2) devote enough IRL time to the "job," both of which seem to be fairly difficult based on past/current CSM history.

That was an amazing time. I think everyone should do it at least once. Glad you had a great experience coming into the game. Be sure to checkout Scott Manley's video about it.

There have been some who have been elected with a misconception that it was just a free trip to Fanfest, epeen competition, easy work or something else entirely. So when they leave the CSM early or at the end of their term, they tend to lash out openly that it turned out to be real work. From what I have gathered, you get out of the CSM what you put into it. I plan on putting a lot into it.

If it becomes obvious I am having zero positive effect, then I have no issue with stepping down and letting another person try a different angle. I want what is best for the game and the players - even if it means having someone else on the CSM instead of me to get that job done. Smile

I have removed a rule breaking post.

The Rules:
5. Trolling is prohibited.

Trolling is a defined as a post that is deliberately designed for the purpose of angering and insulting other players in an attempt to incite retaliation or an emotional response. Posts of this nature are disruptive, often abusive and do not contribute to the sense of community that CCP promote.

Since one of the primary unofficial duties of the CSM is to generate drama for the entertainment of the average player, the number of deleted personal attacks in this thread should be an excellent recommedation.

So many ISD posts in here you would think they were the one running for CSM. I'm glad they are smiting the trolls in here though. If anything it assures me my views on shaking up the stagnation of the game is in fact the right path. Still, I find it funny they have nothing outside of personal attacks to hold against me.

Thread locked at the polite request of the OP.

Regardless the position the OP took in this campaign, which is not one for me to judge, approve or condemn in my position as VA of ISD's CCL division, it saddens me to see we had to intervene in this thread on so many occasions.
