Pantsufan For CSM X

First post

Hello all!

I would like to let everyone know that I will be placing my name in for CSM X. This is the first year that I run an alliance as EXEC but I bring a lot of years in EVE to the table. I always tried to listen to the needs and concerns that most players in EVE have and I want to be able to make these voices of EVE pilots heard.

Who am I you ask?
I'm a veteran with over 10 years of experience in EVE, more SOV space than any other area. I have lived in every region in the game and have seen and been apart of most coalitions. I understand the needs and wants of most pilots in EVE and the changes we all desire to happen in the game.

I am the current EXEC of Skeleton Crew. Alliance and N3 coalition , I got quite accustomed to newer players and see the potential in taking care of and teaching them with respect, without looking down on them.

We are at a point in this game where people need to stand up and make sure that the new incoming players are more taken care of as well as making sure veterans are not forgotten. They are the players who can keep this game playing on and we need to start looking at them more than we have been. I tried to help players for years in EVE with my own ISK and assets to make sure that everyone I talk to isn't in need of anything.

I want to be a CSM who:

- is known for helping the players in the game as much as possible.
- cares about the needs and concerns of each pilot
- carries the torch of all players' choices and ideas
- talks to everyday players in EVE and not forget who they are (like most ex CSMs have done in the past after election).
- bring more and fair content to the game if possible. (Fair content is where there are not 1000 vs 1000 every time and the TiDi becomes so bad that you can't even enjoy the large scale fights.)


I am not here because I think I am better than anyone but because I want to be everyone's voice, from brand new players to 12 year veterans.

So please, when time comes, elect me to be your voice as CSM X member.

Thank you!

I have only known Pants for a short time, He does care for all pilots around him, and on a few discussions has the intuitiveness to recognize problems from a different viewpoint, and bring them to light.

i've been playing with pantsufan only for a month now, and i have never met someone who is as passionate about eve online, its gameplay and mechanics.

he has helped me and my corp adapt to null sec large scale pvp and has been very understanding when me or my corp mates have made a mistake or two nd took the time to explain why what we did was wrong and how we can improve our game.

i will endorse him and i look forward to flying with him for the future too

on one hand, great, a vet who has alot of experience.

One the other, if we really elect somebody called PANTSU-FAN, can we really claim to be a "mature gaming community" anymore?

How many endorsements from your line members did you demand before they can rat with out a fc?

Also serious question, how do you feel about the null sec meta with huge amounts of space being rented out to alliances that don't want to do anything other rat mine build supers and claim to be part of major coalitions? Is that what you want null to be?

Also if ccp wanted to add a new tutorial and asked the csm for suggestion what would you say the tutorial should cover.

Given your history of flying off the handle at your own members when they behave in ways that you disapprove of, see eveskunk, how do you intend to be a productive member of a group of players from diverse backgrounds that will likely have very different opinions on what EVE's key objectives for the coming year are?

I have been flying with Pantsufan since around November of 2014 and over all he is a good guy. He values his player base and our opinions unlike some of the other people I have flown with in the past. Is he perfect you might ask and the answer is no. There isn't one of us that is, in my honest opinion. Does he learn from mistakes made and continue to get support from his player base ? Yes he very much does and his passion for keeping Eve alive keeps me logging in day after to reach out to new bro's to teach. This is what makes him different at least in my eyes from the majority of Eve players.
Pants like myself is a firm believer in building relationships with those pilots he flies with inside and outside of Eve. This is what keeps me and mine around this Alliance. Pants you have my endorsement and any way I can help you to achieve this goal of CSM I will do my best to be there helping.

Sincerely,

What will you do on the CSM that means you can represent null sec blocks better than Manny, Sion, or hell god forbid even Sort Dragon?


Also, since I am quite familiar with the way you manage your alliance (thanks eveskunk), how would you defend against the accusation that you are in fact, completely incompetent?

Cut ratting privileges until enough people pile in to defend him for these accusations while never acknowledging them himself. Also remember that he doesn't want any negative feedback.

Historical context for my question: Your previous alliance, also called Skeleton Crew (ref: http://evemaps.dotlan.net/alliance/99001787/corporations ) failcascaded after your alliance was scammed into a JF scheme that caused them to lose all their personal belongings. This was documented on EVEskunk back in 2012, with eve-mails showing that you shortly thereafter told your alliance that all was well and that you were not in danger of being reset by -A-.

Roughly two weeks later, your alliance was reset by -A- for not paying rent properly and all the pilots in your old alliance ended up losing their gear in Catch in addition to the JF scam that you had fallen prey to.

Last year, you tried to form the "battlement" coalition to invade the CFC that included a now relatively EVE infamous powerpoint. Your coalition collapsed upon itself within two weeks of you attempting to form it.

Question: What have you learned from those prior failures that you can use to make your CSM tenure a success, rather than another in a long line of misbegotten misadventures?

Hello
As a former member of Skeleton Crew i will say that pants has done rather well to get where he is. But behind all the fun and games you see above (using currrent members to endorse him) its rather different. I was on the leadership in skelly and its no fun place. Evey little structure and when you try and bring up some issues pants will just sweep it under the carpet. also new members that would join the alliance with out any checks would instantly be put in leadership positions with out meetings with current leadership about them. Sadly i would not want him on the CSM because his tendancy to fly off the handle and not listen to people and a key role of a CSM member is to be able to listen.

As far as the accusations that I am an incompetent leader are untrue and I know I do things differently than most EXEC's. I have done somethings wrong (ratting stuff :/) and other silly mistakes everyone makes. But I have learned from those experiences and grown more into the leader that I should've started out to be.

I know that Manny, Sion and Sort are great guys in this, well respected and I have much respect for them as well. Sort has taught me a lot of things about how to run a successful alliance and become a better leader. I am glad that I have learned so much from him. This Campaign is for something that I feel I can bring diversely to the table and be more bias than most people can be. I am not running a large alliance or coalition so I see what the basic players are wanting and I want to be a voice for them.

As for JaakJaak's statement I will only offer factual information about how your Corporation only wanted to harm allies in our current Coalition. Every person has a path they choose in the game. You and your guys choose a path that wasn't about the growth within our current Coalition. So yes I made a change to the leadership structure after listening to your version of plans based off of you and your Corporations statements about our Coalition Mates. I picked someone who had a cool head, has built successful relationships in his past and is a well respected member among his fellow Alliance Mates.

Last I have never offered or paid anyone in my Alliance or any associates of mine to post on here as each of them support this decision to become a voice for the new players in Eve Online.


Thanks,

Pantsufan‏

From my experience a new tutorial explaining how to correctly use the fleet tool would be most useful. Most new players do not even know what it is or why they should use it. Combat is not covered and can empower the new players to achieve more things in this game. It would also be nice to see a tutorial explaining how to correctly setup and utilize the overview.
