Hello, my dear experienced capsuleers, I am Doudou the newBro.

[interrupted] But your name is ****!!! RIOT [/interrupted]

No, no. Lets make this clear, my name represents cute cats or other cute things in French. I am part of the Frenchy invasion currently going on in New Eden, and that is why you will vote for me! If that isn't enough, let me share some other good reasons with you.

As a completely new player, many things pop out at me as being problematic, or not as accessible as they should be. Eve is a complex game, and I like it that way. There is no "dumbing down" suggestions that will be encouraged through me, but "heavy simplification" is needed, especially in the UI area.

==== Questions you may have ====

Why would I vote for you? Well probably you wont ^_^ But wouldn't it be awesome that someone with a fresh look on the game be allowed to share and shape this experience.

Do you understand how much time is needed for CSM? Yes, as much as we all do. I've read up all I could, and I will be able to put aside the time needed for this project.

Whats in it for me? Well, if you are an experienced player, NOTHING. Haha, that may not be entirely true, but I represent new players with their issues/questions/aspirations. The advanced meta is well enough represented, its time we get fresh looks into the process.

==== Areas of interest ====

- UI
- ****** missions
- Discovery tools (in-game connecting tools)
- Rookie PvP
- High-sec

==== Goals ====

- Less windows, better integration of UI and simplicity. "The game should be complex, the UI should be blissfully simple." - Me
- I have a few ideas for missions. Currently, the state of generic mission text is outrageous! I want CCP to reach out to the community, to help replace the looping text you get from simple missions. More on this later if you guys want to hear about it :)
- As discussed with SugarKyle, Eve needs more ways to connect players to different movements (newBro roams), other players (beginner PvP) and interesting events. I will be pushing for this a lot.
- All new players start in high-sec. As such, that is the only place I can positively impact.
- Get CCP to add tools in-game for those already helping out new players!

==== What can you expect ====

- Blatant honesty. I have nothing to hide and always speak my mind.
- A lot of non-sense and good times, I play this game to have fun. As such, I believe all systems should be fun.
- Not enough seriousness. You can find that elsewhere, I have no desire to be boringly serious.
- Technical knowledge: As a Software Engineer student, I can have technical discussions with CCP. I understand what they mean when they say it will take longer than you might think. It also means they can't blind me with technical gibberish. Win win situation.

==== Where can you find me ====

In-game, I hang out in E-UNI a lot. They are a great ressource for new players! If there is enough demand, I'll create a channel and update this post. You can always mail me inside the client with questions/comments/critics. Keep it constructive and I will respond.

Though my twitch channel has been mainly used to stream coding, I will be doing Q&A there if people are actually interested in this!

Twitch
Youtube

If I get elected (xD), I'll create a skype for you. I wont create a twitter as I just don't really like that communication system.

==== Spread the word & Final words ====

Contact a starting friend, tell your beginner corp-mates and don't be shy. New Eden needs noobs, we provide a lot of fun for more experienced players, even if that is to our demise ^_^

I would like to thank absolutely everyone who has helped me get into this game. From the guys who killed us in a wormhole and then sent us ISK, to the helpful players in RookieHelp, to SugarKyle and Greygal for showing me what Eve is all about and to that fine lady who gave me soooooo much ISK on Christmas! xD This has been an awesome ride so far, and one thing is 100% certain, there is NO problem with Eve community and their attitude towards new players.

I am doing this for fun, cause someone in E-Uni said I should :) Lets see how it goes!
