Ogi is unfortunately incorrect.


Also, confirming I am not actually Jeff Bridges. As Poetic mentioned in one of his other threads, I'm British and work in IT.

I'm actually David Warner, noted English actor known for being Sark and the MCP (as well as Ed Dillinger) in Tron, three separate characters in Star Trek (Pat Stewart really got the "There are four lights!" line spot on, although I'd rather not talk about the other roles) as well as the "Evil Genius" in Time Bandits (one of my favourite roles!).

So, you see, it's all true.

This thread is actually a pretty nice advert for Eve-Uni.

And I agree with the Goons/Test, OP is making a fool of themselves, as bitter exes tend to, unfortunately Oops

Vastek, Vricrolatious, you're doing it wrong!

(This thread is now about making a vague claim about something, and then link to a page which is related but does not confirm your claim, as Poetic started on the previous page.)

You're exceptionally desperate to pretend that the claims are untrue. Odd, since you have all the data yourself in the E-UNI database, and you could easily counter-claim with your "facts" with but a few SQL statements.

Odd that you aren't doing that, eh?

(I'm working on code to import it all into Google Docs, so people can view and verify the data on their own.)

If you're a carebear, want to be in a large player-run corporation, and avoid all conflict, while having access to some research and invention slots in the corporate POS. Then, yeah, excellent advert.

It's a good thing EVE Uni doesn't have bunnies ... because the OP has a pot, and will use it!!! Lol

And if anyone in EVE Uni has Furriers, quick, hide them!!!










p.s. See Fatal Attraction movie as reference for those scratching their heads at the comments.

Nex (Cash Shop) / Aurum - removing sand from the sandbox since Incarna. Currently the only use for aurum is to buy virtual items in the in-game store, but Cockerill expects to expand its uses in the future.

I do hope you didn't retrieve the data using something scraping EVE Gate - that kind of thing is an EULA violation as you're supposed to use the API.

Though, of course, if you had the data already, where did it go? It was very careless of you losing it like that after all the work you did to collate the data for all those 1500 characters, especially with the different ratios of characters you keep mentioning.

Oh, and I do also hope you're calculating a characters total time in E-UNI, rather than just their creation date, or the time they joined the corp (either originally or most recently), as they alone won't tell you anything (people do tend to come back to EVE a lot with their old characters when CCP do those offers). I'll let you do the work on calculating that yourself though. Remember to calculate down to the second rather than day or week, or you will lose resolution in the totals.

You know, if you keep mentioning stuff like that, people will start to think you are upset because you were kicked out...

I recommend "GRANT SELECT ON `Secret_CSM_FILES_DB` TO `Poetic Stanzitroll`; DROP USER `Kelduum Revann`;"

Then maybe an ajax or curl call to my blog.

If I was kicked out, why would you have awarded me a graduate medal? You suggested it would be in everyone's best interest, and I took your advice. I dropped roles, waited 24 hours, and then, just before I left, you awarded me my medal.

This WOULD be funny if true
Given he's 70, wonder if there are any older EVE players O.o

I know of two dutch brothers who are both over 70 (in their 80s I believe) who play eve, and use it as a means of keeping contact, plus they get to play with eachother like when they were young... :)

We all make mistakes, Poetic. We were even considering you for management position at one point, before you showed how mental you are.

There are two CSMs in this game.

The one that the players voted for. And EVE University.

The recent wardec policy changes are proof of EVE University, via Kelduum Revaan, being the other de facto CSM. CCP caters to their needs, without any oversight by the players. They've become a carebear haven. They are now effectively impossible to wardec. CCP gave them, in essence, a PvP flag. They can turn it on or off at their whim. Their decshield is 19 corporations strong, and they've been allowed to use an exploit to avoid the CONCORD costs of that decshield.

The only single danger left for them is the suicide gank. Any other method of PvP against them is fruitless.


So the CSM get something approved that is desired by an overwhelming majority of players and its bad? They finally pull out a win/win and you cry about it?

Oh, and you mean mechanic formerly regarded as exploit. Just to clarify.

If you want to kill nubs you're a sad piece of work, and if you can't find anybody to kill in New Eden, biomass now and save yourself the imminent tears.

internet spaceships

are serious business sir.

Not considering. I was offered it twice. Media Manager. I turned it down both times. Not my thing. But it was nice to get the offer and I thanked the offerees.

No player-run corporation in this game should be able to recuse themselves from the sandbox.

This policy change allows every highsec corporation to do just that, avoid all non-consensual highsec PvP except the suicide gank.

And EVE University is not a corp filled with newbs. The majority of their members are a year old or older. It is a carebear corporation.
