My intent to run for CSM X

First post

#1 - 2015-01-09 14:49:20 UTC
I am as of today announcing that I intend to run again for CSM 10, I was apart of CSM 8 and I believe that I have a lot to contribute to this years coming CSM through my years of experience in many different aspects of eve.

I am not running under a particular platform persay just with the same goal that I did last time and that is to attempt to help and guide ccp towards bettering the game for all aspects not just in 0.0 where I live.

For those people who are afraid that I am again another 0.0 candidate with only care for my own well I am here to tell you that you are mistaken. However I doubt that I could disuade you from this point so I will not bother trying with this.

People who know me know what I am about, I am open to questions about my ideas and thoughts towards different topics, keep in mind however any trolling or attempts to derail the thread will be ignored by me.

Thank you for considering me as a candidate for csm 10.

I order to secure my vote i need to know your opinion of ishtars, and if you were a soup which soup would you be.

He usually talks sense an generally has good idea, you have my support.

Ishtars I personally do not like but if we are talking from a game balance perspective then my issue is less with the ishtar and more with the sentry drone itself.

CCP's inability to deal with the growing issues of sentries while still adding more drone modules to the game is of big concern to me and will be something I would like to see addressed if I were to make it to csm.

Unless I'm remembering incorrectly, you were widely viewed as one of the least contributing members of CSM8.

It's entirely possible that I'm wrong, so my question is this:

What did you do while a part of CSM8, and what is the one thing you are most proud of having contributed to?

Can't shoot blues if you don't have any. Long Live NPSI.

With regards to the first half of your post that is each to their own I guess. I know what I did and how active I was and aside from that the only others that know about this would be ccp or other csm members.

One of the things I am most proud about is the changes made to the fleet system including details put into fleet composition and such. Take it as excuses but I am never going to be able to tell you for a few years exactly what I had a say in or not.

It is important to know that some rumours may have come out regarding my inactivity during the term, the only time I was inactive was when I was away from game due to real life issues for the last month and a half of my term.

At least jail is your first good excuse for being inactive. Do you really want me to drudge up the exact same complaints that were fielded last time? Or do you have enough mindless mongs to support you again?

Be advised... if he doesn't like the answer, you'll never get it from him.

Just like all of the questions around his inactivity for multiple years prior to csm8. Fortunately for him (and unfortunately for the CSM), he left PL and got in on the HBC vote.

Go ahead. :)

I believe I screwed up a lot in the past specially with how I handled the HBC situation and my main role in its downfall. Since then though I am happy to find myself in a great alliance with some really decent allies.

I guess things turned out well for me though so I am happy. The results of the vote will determine what people think of me win or lose.

Thanks for the free bumps though, its good to have my thread at the top for more exposure they do say any publicity is good publicity even in politics. :)

Do you know why many considered you to be ineffective or inactive member of CSM8?

Why did you apparently not attend a single session during the CSM8 Summer Submit remotely via teleconferencing?

No I do not unfortunately.

With regards to your second question I did not attend them because I had just started a new job at the start of august which ran on a 3 month contract till the start of November.

It is commonly known from people who have been on csm and know of how the summits work that if you are a euro and do not get time off work it is hard to get in on any of the summits as they all start in the early morning EU and finish around about 17:30 in the evening. For the winter summit I however did not have a job and attended nearly every summit meeting.

If anyone is wondering I am currently unemployed and even if I had a job I would intend to have the time off for the summits that came up. This is one of the biggest issues for people who are euros and want to attend summits, you need to be a student or someone who owns their own business to be guaranteed to be able to make it.

I hope this explains and answers your questions.

First one none, second one I helped look over the write ups for the second set as nearly all were done by people attending the summits and then editted by people who joined in by lync later on.
