Is this the first time an out-of-game slight has been bridged into being a violation of a software license agreement? That is an interesting precedent in itself, that CCP is going to police all of our thoughts and words from out-of-game now... time to update point 5 on the TOS, something like "Yes, we CCP are responsible for actions taken by our subscribers that occur outside the jurisdiction of our game servers or web site." would be more accurate with these recent actions CCP is taking.


it was broadcast via EVE TV..... which CCP control, which means the ToS/EULA is applicable since its a CCP service

Well seeing as the CSM members posted seconds after this thread went live either they knew it was coming or they just got very lucky indeed. My money is they were told what the decision was in advance.

Then CCP should have told them this?


Yeah just like stating on HOT coffee cups that they are HOT...

So given the CSM was formed partially as an oversight body to look at CCPs internal proceedures and ensure t20 didn't happen again and was supposed to include players of good character and trustworthy community-centric outlook - how do you propose that kind of body could get any real respect if it was not itself held to the standards expected of the rest of the community?

You cannot be "independent" of the need to have the interests of Eve Online and its player community at heart.

The real problem with Alexander Gianturco is he didn't really give a monkeys about the Eve online community - he only cared for SA and goonswarm.

But regardless CCP have acted fairly in punishing him quite leniently really. Many players would have liked to see him permabanned for what he did so a 30 day ban is a slap on the wrists. The real punishment has been delivered to goonswarm itself whose players have wasted their votes, but to be honest, goonswarm probably deserve this punishment as well given their appalling behaviour on the forums over this incident.

You are saying this isn't a democracy. It is very much a democracy and you knowing or not know WHY it was made should help you to understand why it is a democracy.

This was a poor knee-jerk reaction to what happened. Sure, what was said was wrong but CCP you have, by your decision, disenfranchised and made clear that the interests of the people, you supposedly value , who cast over 1000 votes are to be ignored.

You have deprived everyone of the abilities and experience Alex can - and has - brought to the table. Sanctions are necessary here to prevent this happening again, but your course of action is incorrect. You cannot create an environment as you did at the Fanfest panel and not expect some issues. You cannot ignore your own failings in any event. You cannot disenfranchise your players that fund your business.

"CCP delivers" - the wrong results.

There is NOTHING in the TOS about inciting others to do something being actionable. CCP unilaterally, without discussion decided to throw away 1/6th of all the voters and claim it does violate the TOS. We can all agree or disagree that it was unacceptable, it doesn't change the fact that it was NOT AGAINST THE TOS. CCP decided to destroy this election. We shall see how happy this will make them in the long term.

This is sad.....

I think the banning is appropriate to send a message to Alliance Panel Leaders that their actions can have consequences if they go to far.

At the same time, he was enormously helpful to CSM 6, and I think he'll be enormously helpful to CSM 7 too!!!!! Don't remove him from the CSM!!!!!!!!!!!!! That's too much!!!

I don't necessarily disagree with his 30 day ban, and yes I fully agree that it is well withing CCPs right to do it. But there are rights and there is intellegence. This isn't the most intellegent process. CCP could have and should have told the CSM that due to Mittens actions they believe it is best if he isn't on the CSM this year. THE CSM should have made this announcement.


Are they a rubber stamp or are they an actual useful body?

in an democracy you cannot buy the right to vote with just 15 bucks a month

if you know why it was formed , you would more see it as an guide to CCP, they may follow it
or not

CCP is like putin

Yeah it was made partially in response to the developer corruption scandal that involved T20 and Band of Brothers alliance and make sure the players had oversight to ensure that could never happen again.

The irony is we almost had a situation where Mittani was boasting of being in control of developers and influence within CCP and replaying this corrupt old scenario again. Had Mittani not been appropriately punished over his behaviour at Fanfest many many players and many external media sites would have considered he was being given unfair treatment that other players could not expect.

If I was one of the remaining CSM members I'd sure as **** be considering resigning right now. If CCP had any intention of taking their much lauded (in both the gaming and mainstream press) player council seriously they'd have either respected the consensus they reached or told them right from the start it was out of their hands. Instead the CSM are given the illusion of legitimacy then overruled mere hours later.

That doesn't sound like the new CCP we were promised oh so recently, that sounds like the bad CCP of old who suffer from bad internal communication and schizophrenic public relations.

And that doesn't bear well for the future of Eve.
