Would be nice to see who you stand for. Seems more of a generic speech.

I stand for a better game that has more tools in it.
I want to see all areas of space prosper.
I can't say much about low sec, it is the one place I have not lived at length in, yet.

You will see me on one hand saying things like:
- how we need to nudge people out of NPC corps so they stop hiding and farming ISK with greater security.
- how miners need actual tools to react to live long enough for friends to warp to them and help them
- how null sec blobs would benefit from absorb modules, so logi might pop but they might stop people losing the target lottery and vanishing instantly.

I don't favour any one group.
I just want a game that requires more tactics, strategy and such beyond just gathering up a zerg.

So, I favour better mechanics, regardless of opinions from people complaining that it will change their way of play. Often they are defending it tooth and nail because it is broken and unbalanced.

I haven't either, mostly because it is boring and for the most part devoid of defining characteristics. Fortunately, Sugar Kyle has it in good hands.

I'm voting for Aram Kachaturian, EVE's French Prophet, and progod, the best FC in the game. Because they're attractive and witty in real life.

That is why we need the abstain option! Lol

What, specifically do you look for in a CSM?

Have you considered the possibility that your expectations are unrealistic if not one of the several hundred candidates who have run for election in the past few years is even close to what you want?

If not, have you considered running yourself, since there is clearly an unserved constituency.

It's interesting to speculate upon, but it just wouldn't affect the outcome even slightly. Abstaining from a candidate is the same as not putting them on your list.

The top 14 which the quiz gives are the ones closest and they are where my vote goes to (can't remember the quiz name, but gets reposted always near the time).

They are looking for additional questions at the moment.

Is some of Null Sec too safe?

Possibly it requires more shrinking of Null Blocs, making them viable in less systems so more alliances can fit out there?

That I can agree with. The way you make it more dangerous is by allowing cloaky players their tools to compete with larger entities through asymmetric warfare. Get rid of jump fatigue for cloaky ships/blops.

I tried this, "being diplomatic," thing today and it went something like this:

Them, "What do you think of bot mining?"
Jen, "Back in the day, I would have been tempted to sniff their IP address and deliver a program to their RAM, which would nuke their boot sector and partially flash their BIOS."
Them, "Do you think that The Order is right?"
Jen, "I think that if you do not enjoy mining with its social and relaxing aspects then there are plenty of other things to do in EVE."
Them, "So you do believe in The Order!"
Jen, "The Order is a non-factor in my life. Everyone is entitled to be a part of what ever cult or religion they choose."
Them, ".... "

dont know if this is relevant,

but I think alliances should have a LP store system like the big NPC corps.

you can trade in the npc corps lp at a 3-1 (changeable) rate.

That could be really interesting. The alliance leader or who ever has LP roles can set up an LP store (in their SOV controlled stations) with doctrine ships, gear, etc in it.
The more people your alliance has set red that you kill, the more LP you gather.
War targets should be at a fixed rate to that, say ((reds = # LP) x 1.5)

This would help subsidise your most active PvPers and ensure that active members are getting the gear supplied rather than neutrals and reds buying up the stuff and raising the prices or hauling it back out of null sec.

This blog post, other feedback that I get and various things I have gleemed, do give me some misgivings.

I have a dream
This galaxy will rise up,
and live out the true meaning of its existance:
"We hold these truths to be self-evident,
that all pilots are created equal."

I have a dream
that one day on the red hills of Minmatar,
the friends of former carebears
and the newbies of former SOV owners
will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood.

I have a dream
that one day even the waste land of low sec,
a space sweltering with the heat of injustice,
sweltering with the heat of barrenness,
will be transformed into an oasis of thriving systems and conflict.

I have a dream that our four types of space
will one day live in a galaxy where they will not be judged by the alliance they are in (except Goons P )
but by the content of their character.

I have a dream today!
