<3 Chribba, always returns greets from random yokels like myself in Amarr.

Veld for the Veldgod.

In the beginning there was nothing, which exploded.

Chribba it the one that minned that veldspar that came in every starter ship refined in a shinny one unit of tritanium!

A tritanium that remeber us and give us love and make us keep playing eve everytime we lose ower beloved ship and get poded!!!

He deserves a Statue Surrounded by good veldspar!!! ( That huge ones only found in -1.0)

Chribba is EVE, and in a way, EVE is Chribba.

I want to thank Chribba for EVE-Files, which has been an invaluable tool for me.

Also for the Lovequest events, of which I almost won one once. (my own inability to click the right button cost me the grand prize...)

Tell me Chribba doesn't have to pay for his account (that one, at least), and I'm not talking about PLEX.

Tactical destroyers... I'll take a dozen Gallente, please.

Top bloke.

I have chatted with him in Amarr local and can safely say he's the biggest personality in game with the smallest ego I've had the pleasure to chat to.

Glad to see Chribba getting some more recognition for everything he's done for Eve. Definitely feel a unique Jovian mining barge for the man is in order.

I really loved reading the threads about what happened to people that attempted to attack Chribbas assets :D

Grats Chribba, you're an inspiration.

A statue in honor of Chribba is a wonderful idea. A system full of sweet sweet veldspar is cool too. Chribba really does deserve all the love and praise.

Not sure if I did it backwards or not, really immaterial, but I played for a long time before I read any of the lore and "backstory".

I mention that to highlight this:

In the lore, there is a story of a selfless, driven individual who, in the face of all odds and logic, completed his mission with dogged determination, not for personal glory, but for the betterment of the pilot community.

He was rewarded by having a system named after him, Old Man Star.

In my own humble opinion, what Chribba has so selfishly done for the EvE community rises to this level.

Surely there is a system that can be christened as his namesake, and maybe even be somehow worked into the lore and backstory.

No, he is no God to worship, but he deserves much recognition.

Rename 9UY4-H to Veldstar, it'll always be Chribba's no matter who holds sov.

This, because even if Chribba loses it, people will know.

My suggestion would be to add a Veldnaught outside Amarr station. Much like the memorial Titan in Gallente/Caldari space, the Veldnaught would be a everlasting memorial to a guy who makes EVE a little better.

We need something in Amarr at least.

I witnessed the Veldnaught and it was glorious.

Much love to this man.

wasn't there a post somewhere about moving a titan to amarr to give to chribba for mining purposes? I say we do that!

I <3 Chribba.
"Chribba plans to continue playing EVE Online for quite a long time and he enjoys working towards the goal he has set for himself in-game." What goals can he possibly have left?

because he makes the attempts of the rest of us proles to be cool in EVE look like the feeble attempts they are :P

Four years ago I had saved up for months to get the ISK for my 1st Super Cap. The only way for me to get it at the time was to buy it. That would not have been possible without Chribba. To be honest i was very nervous about trading with soo much isk. Chribba came into the system put my mind at ease and took both myself and the super cap seller through the procedure. He was and continues to be a shining light in the game and this spotlight is so well deserved. I agree with the others, CCP award that man a Unique ship or at the very least add his name to a permenant fixture in EVE.

Congratulations Chribba, you deserve it :)

I think one option is that this new mining frigate, being brought into Eve via this blog (, should be properly named the "Chribba". I think that is a good way for CCP and Eve Online can appreciate all the hard work Chribba has put towards Eve Online, making it one of the first things that new players can appreciate.
