Unfortunately, due to family medical issues, I am forced to withdraw from the running for CSM8. I wish all the candidates the best of luck, and sincerely hope that someone will step up to the plate for lowsec's interests and needs.

My apologies to those of you who expressed support for me in this thread and in other areas such as Twitter, blogs, etc - in particular those who took the time to give me a platform from which to speak (Xander and Drackarn) and those who used their platforms to raise awareness (Rixx, Jaxley, Chella, etc).

It's about time you ran
Glad we've got a good candidate for the CSM this term, I know you'll represent low-sec well.

Some interesting ideas, lowsec really does need a lot of work and in particular a real motive for extending operations there by risk averse highsec corps.

I'll be following this thread with interest

I fully support the candidacy of Marc Scaurus, as he possesses the ability to kill multiple T1 cruisers with a talos.

But seriously thou, one of the problems with previous CSM's are that various people with no skills outside of being an alliance representative were elected to the CSM, people who had the wrong skillset for the CSM, people with egos and none of the leadership/teamwork skills to match. And some who were downright useless.

CSM's need to be able to communicate above all, to act as liaison and mitigate the "thorax in mouth" disease that CCP traditionally has. Marc is one of the best communicators in EVE, his blogging and work at TMC shows it very clearly.

Good enough for Hans Jagerblitzen to endorse; good enough for me to do the same.

What's your opinion on:
-Lowsec incursions
-0.4 systems being the way they are
-The state of capital warfare in lowsec

Should 0.4 systems be opened up for moon mining?

It's not just that, you can't deploy fighters there, you can't anchor reactors and last time I checked the description of POSes still say they need starbase charters in 0.4 when they don't. 0.4 is just in this weird nonsense limbo right now.

Absolutely. Getting rid of the need for starbase charters awhile back for POSes in .4 systems was a step in the right direction, but in what can kindly be called 'typical CCP fashion', the job was left half done. Increasing the availability of moons by opening 0.4 systems to moon mining is an easy, albeit small, way to help address the revenue issue in lowsec.

I also imagine the 'land grab' aspect of doing away with the restriction could result in a fair number of explosions, which is always good.

"Weird nonsense limbo" is putting it lightly. Getting 0.4 systems in line with the rest of lowsec is something that I'm frankly surprised hasn't been done yet, and something that I will push to have addressed should I be elected. CCP have shown a willingness to recognize the unique 'lowsec situation' with the recent Crimewatch changes, now it is simply a matter of getting the rest of these inconsistencies dealt with.

Just listened to your interview on Crossing Zebras and you mention a subject close to my heart, improving the wardec system. It has received some attention recently but still needs a lot more work to make it fit for purpose, what do you have in mind for this?

Coming back to your lowsec side here are a couple of ideas (perhaps concepts) I would like to see which may tempt more corps into lowsec.

1/ There should be a real benefit for an industrial corp to set up a lowsec operation, perhaps by having a significant boost to production and research, particularly in a POS

2/ I do have a bit of an rp background and to me lowsec should be the place where respectable highsec corps do their dirty business (slave labour, illegal scientific experiments, corporate assassination etc). Lowsec should be the place where the Board can deny wrongdoing because they didn't know about it (as what happens in rl) so some mechanism to allow corps to deal in unethical but very profitable areas would seem a way forward.

In the early stages of the game 2003/4/5 I have fond memories of lowsec along the Aridia pipe (and elsewhere) with small communities that sprang up, both pirate and non pirate which made areas have a distinct feeling of place. It would be great to get that back, which could come about if lowsec was developed and became the vibrant place it once was. Unfortunately at present lowsec's just the place in the way between highsec and nullsec.

Sorry, one other thing, the sec status hit needs sorting as well.

If I have +2 sec standing and attack someone from the "Yarr Jolly Roger Corp" who has a sec of -7 I really should take the same sec hit as if I attacked someone with +5 sec from the "Goody Goody Corp".
