Hello fellow Eve Online players

My name is Thermal Damage, and this year I will be running for the CSM. I have been playing Eve for almost 11 years, so I feel that I have a fairly good knowledge in most aspects of the game. I have lived in high, low and nullsec doing everything from building capitals to working on diplomatic relations. I feel my best attribute would be my ability to work with, encourage, and solve problems with people, something I feel would be very useful as a member of the CSM. I am also a very active member of the #tweetfleet community as you can see here.

I'm a passionate advocate for the harsher side of Eve Online. Eve has become too focused on becoming safe and overly friendly over the last few years, both in regards to game mechanics and within the community at large. I know there are a large portion of you who dislike how Eve is slowly becoming some kind of safe space and I would be there to fight your corner. I am interested in working with the 'charity' mentality within our community to find some sort of resolution so that we can phase them out. They are too often used as a basis for corruption and self promotion.

I am also interested in working with CCP on how they manage their interactions with the community, including their ticketing system, recommendations/complaints from players, and their forums. I mean what's the point of the forums if people rather go to r/eve? The forums should be the central hub of out of game communication. As an experienced community manager, I feel I can bring a lot to the table in this regard. CCP would also benefit from some education on how to keep real life and ingame issues separate. I see many CCP employees posting about politics and some rather polarizing social issues on their work forum accounts and twitter handles. Its all rather embarrassing. Only grief and negativity can come from people bringing real life 'stuff' with them past the login screen. Together we can come to a solution where all Eve news is centralized with impartial support from CCP.

I am also interested in running a focus group to find out why 80% of Eve's playerbase refuses to leave highsec. As I said in my first point, it is nice and safe, but I suspect there is more to it. I am not so arrogant that I claim to have all the answers, so I would like to work with alliance leaders and community figureheads from all areas of space to find ways in which we can pull people away from the newbie training ground that is high security space. It could be with nerfs, buffs, or new ideas altogether, I approach this with an open mind.

The best way to contact me would be @thermaldamage, but you can post here or send me an Eve mail.

Thankyou for taking the time to read this, and I hope I can count on your vote come election time.

Thermal Damage is someone who should be on the CSM. He isn't a politician, but a player's player, and that is something the community really needs. He has a very good understanding of the community, is very active in helping others and proposing new ideas, and knows many aspects of the Eve Universe. (Even those aspects that some may or may not agree with, but are still part of what makes Eve what it is) He has already been active in proposing many new ideas to improve the gaming mechanics and would be a very good asset to the community, especially as a voice for those of us who may have become discouraged watching lowsec slowly dissolve.


Vote for Thermal Damage, and Make New Eden Great Again !!!!Lol

I really prefer explosive damage. It tends to be a weaker resist on pretty much anything people fly these days.

I tend to keep away from campaign drama, but in this case I think I'll wade into the cesspit of bad candidature. Thermal, you are promoting the embodiment of exactly what is wrong with public perception with the csm. While I don't always agree with what certain eve personalities do, your behaviour towards others within this community can only be viewed as reprehensible. Not only that, but you are consistently making a mockery of the very idea of the csm, be it a troll or not, a group that you claim to want to be a part of and represent. I strongly believe that people will vote with their feet and completely ignore your excuse of a candidacy, but I still wanted to make my opinion on actions like this completely clear and transparent.

I'd rethink your platform and behavior if I was you.
