Hello Spacefriends!

I am here to officially announce my candidacy for CSM 11.

First and foremost I am a community person. I believe the community is what makes eve great and what drives me to work for you all as a member of the CSM. A consequence of this means that it doesn't matter if you live in highsec, lowsec, nullsec or a wormhole. As a member of the community your opinion is important to me and important to the game.

The most important thing to take away from this statement is that I have my own opinion of what I think this game should be. However: "The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few." - Spock (Yay star trek)

If elected to a seat on the CSM I will work tirelessly to become the voice of the people and have that voice heard. I have always worked well with others and believe the CSM is an amazing opportunity for all players to be represented.

Some of the subjects I support and endorse:

1. The creation of wealth from the bottom up.
2. Stable nullsec industry with less of a need for importation.
3. Solo and small gang PVP.
4. ECM Rebalancing.
5. Checkboxes in all forms.

My personal goal as a member of the CSM is to further develop the EVE Community and Esports within eve.

Member of the EVE Downunder Team and Founder of Oceanic Assault.

Below are some answers to questions I have fielded since I announced my candidacy for CSM.

Q: What suggestions do you have for your bottom up wealth

A: I think first you need to look at the way the taxation system works and the way that alliances and larger entities generate their isk. I think the best way to achieve that goal and the industry goal is by finding ways to keep resources that are produced in nullsec by making it more profitable to perform the manufacturing and refining processes in null but also work on how the system works in highsec, convert moon mining to something more like asteroid mining the moon mining one is more difficult because you need to want to take it out of the hands of a single player operating a pos style but you also don't want to lose that mechanic and the fights that money moons generate.


Q: Huge amount of ISK I would imagine is generated through the refine tax of stations, how would you take that out of single player / large groups hands?

A: Refining tax is one of the only types of bottom up isk generation
the minerals that are taxed go to the owner of the station
so, all the newbies do the mining, then refine, most of those refined minerals go to the player but a percentage is taxed by the corp or alliance.
The player is the bottom doing the work and gets 90% of the profit and the Top gets 5-10% with money moons atm the alliance just mines the moon and nobody gets that isk except the alliance.


Q: So why does CCP have to step in for alliance politics and revenue generation?

A: Well, they don't however I think players should have the ability to mine everything they need to do manufacturing in nullsec. As it stands at the moment some alliances just ship their moon goo to jita and sell it there so, my suggestion would be something like a land rights tax, this tax would be based on planting a citadel on a moon that creates minerals
number of minerals that can be mined per hour x 24 x "alliance set tax modifier" = land rights.
The other option would be to have a mining specific tax instead of for just anywhere so, to activate the mining lazor on your citadel you have to pay for a 24 hour license and there is an auto refresh with diminishing returns after say like 5-10 citadels mining it but a limited amount of resources so like how much dispro can you mine in an hour lets just say 1000
so each of the 10 citadels will get 100 in an hour but you have 11 mining each of them gets like 90 or something


Q: Are you for or against the removal of POS" entirely? As in the current stick + bubble thing


A: Yes, I am for the replacement of Poses with Citadels, I think poses provide too much of a tactical advantage
I would think of them as sticks with shields, costing 150m and having the HP of a super and that's just dumb


Q: Are you in favor of removing the current outposts entirely?


A: and their subsequent replacement with citdels? yes, replacing both those structures with a new one and subsequently dropping the old pos and station code is a great idea.


Q: So **** the history of the game and make way for the new kids on the block?

A: if the community feels very strongly about keeping history like that in the game they could use them as models in the future


Q: No I'm talking about how when they were built they were sold as permanent fixtures of the game

A: I guess the real question is what would we prefer, to have the same stations and poses with old code which is difficult to maintain forever or to replace them with citadels that is easier to maintain and manage?
It's my belief that with every other major change where something has been removed, and item of similar value has been used to replace it I would have to draw the conclusion that the stations would be replaced with a citadel of equal value.


Q: So I invested approximately 10% of the build cost of a permanent fixture on the game and can say for my 3bil ISK, that I touched the EVE landscape. How do you replace that?

A: I would think it would be replaced with a citadel, I don't have all the answers and unfortunately I can only take your opinion to CCP and attempt to get a response. How would you resolve the situation?


Q: Since EVE Social recognition is Killmail driven. How important do you think recognition be given to the logibros who keep dudes alive and in the fight.

A: I think right now, being a logibro is a bit of a thankless job, as you said, you don't get the killmail but you do get to "save space lives" you can end up playing a pivotal role in a fleet fight. I think the believe that EVE Social recognition is killmail driven is a bit false. Social recognition can come in many forms, performing the functions of an FC or Logi anchor (as far as pvp goes). Social recognition is also driven by PVE activities but most importantly by the community you belong to. Some groups do it well, some not so well.
To answer the original question though you could like logis to killmails the ships they rep shoot.


Q: Logibros are the first to die, or at the point of being ineffective

A: well, if you put it that way, logibros do get killmails, just the sad kind. After that it's up to the pilots "governing body" to provide social recognition of financial compensation for the act of flying logi.

And because of my affiliation I can't be a proponent of solo and small gang PVP? Last year I ran a tournament with over 100 participants called Oceanic Assault out of my love for the Australian timezone and solo PVP. It's quite disappointing if you can't look past someones alliance ticker when considering their nomination for CSM.

The big question is

Are you going to be Sion's proxy if you get voted in ?

Or do you actually for ideas of your own ?

The short answer is No and the long answer is No.

My candidacy is based on representing everyone who plays eve.

I'd take the following explanations/rationalizations as legitimate of where you can like solo and small gang, yet remain a member of one of the largest alliances with outstanding and continuing crimes against the play style, even if they are a little two faced:

A)GSF has SRP. I'm in it for the SRP so I can small gang and solo in peace.

B)All my friends are in GSF.

Being part of GSF and saying you are a proponent and enthusiast of small gang is like saying you are deeply concerned for preserving biodiversity, yet being on the board of a company with an extremely sketchy environmental record, literally saying save the whales while butchering them for cosmetics or save the rain forests while bulldozing them for slightly better profit margins on paper products.

Absolutely someone's playstyle doesn't need to match their ticker. You can be a ganker without a CODE. tag, etc, and in such a huge alliance obviously there are going to get more exceptions than an in a small focused one. At best it makes you an oddity, and a conflicted one at that: what does being in GSF really do to further your solo and small gang experience? Do you even agree with the burning of Cloud Ring? Does having blue standings to half the cluster really make your solo experience better?

Since you are responding in a productive way I'll be quite honest; some of the most fun loving and best solo players I know are in GSF corps. However you still have to admit it is sort of odd - on one hand relishing the fun and the rush of pvp on a small scale, yet tacitly supporting an empire that at best inhibits a ton of interaction in favor of safety, and at worst is actively hostile to it. When is the last time GSF sported an AT team? Can you really stomach a fickle tyrant that trades pvp opportunities for ad-revenue and to expand and secure a grotesquely bloated empire of quasi-renters? With the CFC's bulldozing of Content Ring, you really can't expect people to cheer and want to shake your hand when you sport the ticker that reminds them of how the CFC at large really feels about good content creation.

That is why I question. Explain away if you wish, I am listening.

I don't think it's odd that a pilot from a large coalition is supportive of small gang and solo pvp at all. When I run into a gatecamp in a solo ishtar that has 12 interceptors and 6 falcons I don't scream content killer, I go and get another ship and in my opinion it's exactly the same when a large alliance takes over a region. Just because your play style conflicts with someone else's play style it doesn't make it good or bad, it just makes it different.

What happened when the CFC "Bulldozed content ring" did everyone stop playing and now all they do is post on forums? I'm going to assume that what came next was what the sandbox game is all about: They adapted, moved to another location and continued developing their playstyle.

I have also personally requested that The Mittani stop killing the Space Whales and cutting down the Space Rainforest.

At this point in time I am not an official Imperium candidate nor did I discuss my candidature with Imperium leadership before submitting it. However the way that the Imperium selects candidates is complex and this may change in the future.
