Thanks for the kind words Midori. Smile

Managed to get on some nice cap kills today. It isn't often these sorts of things happen in my TZ. Cool

No problem...

So everybody's talking about what their going to do for the game, but there's little talk about what what each candidate would do in event of an emergency. To me this would be as important a role as getting POSes fixed. It's not easy to talk about, because of the completely unknown nature of the next mistake CCP will make. Who could have seen monocle-gate/microtransactions coming?

To test your paranoia level, could you come up with two big (possible) mistakes made by CCP that would require CSM involvement? Of course, feel free to tell us what you would do if called upon to help stop the bleeding.

An excellent question, and one deserving of its own blog post. Coming soon(TM)!

Talocan United decided to celebrate its two-year birthday by using BLOPs to ignite a low-sec brawl. Best party ever.

I would say I hate to nit pick but well everyone knows me Lol

You do remember that this is your campaign thread? In which you are trying to get elected to the CSM, where you will speak for all the players.

Any spelling, grammatical and punctuation errors are because frankly, I don't care!!

Sure. I consider the enduring success of my alliance a selling point on my resume.

Hey Nathan,

i have a really important question that needs to be answered so i can be reassured i found the right candidate for the next csm vote.

Do you come back and collect your secure container you forgot in our wh? I would be really dissappointed because a future csm member wouldn't leave his garbage behind, right?

fly safe (next time maybe with less containers)

If they are not within a POS control area (i.e. at a safe spot), anchored containers will despawn after 30 days. In other words, right about when the elections finish up.

Keep in mind that such advertisements are not only for the residents, but also for every scout and day-tripper that passes through your system as well. If one wants to advertise to people who play a game, it's best to do it INSIDE the game, rather than on forums and news sites that you're hoping are visited.

Thanks for your post, and please remind your friends to take part in the election as well. You can always remove containers from your overview if you find it too distracting.

Rhavas had some interesting things to say in a recent address to wormhole voters:

At present, there are five candidates who have put their names forward for representing wormhole space on the CSM. They are (alphabetically):

Ayeson
Cipreh
Chitsa Jason
James Arget
Nathan Jameson

James Arget recently posted the following on his CSM blog:

Quote:
I had a fun chat with the other wormhole candidates this weekend. The Pre-Election has been delayed, and as a result we had a bit more time to do some collaboration. I kicked things off, and after a few evemails we all spat in our hands and shook on an agreement. Each candidate only needs 200 votes in the pre-election. Any votes above and beyond this are just cake, but if you’re short those 200, you may fail to be listed on the final ballot. There will be no public count as the votes come in, but we were told that Xhagen would let us know when we passed the threshold.

Therefore, as soon as I hit 200, I’ll be calling for anyone who was goign to give me their pre-election vote to pass it on to another WH candidate. In particular, Ayeson and I have mutually endorsed each other. After that, Chitsa, Cipreh, and Nathan round out the Wormhole 5. This may skew the “front-runner” count when the pre-election results are posted, but it’s more important to keep all our cards in play. The wormhole candidate field is very strong this year, and I think it speaks volumes that we’ll happily kill each other in game, but we’re all in agreement that when it comes to the CSM we need to work together to get the best odds of winning a seat for wormhole space.

The Pre-Election should be going live any hour now on the CSM website, so go out and get your vote in!


I am re-posting it here to confirm that I will be supporting the “Wormhole 5,” and that I will be sending out a public announcement if and when I have reached the 200 votes needed for the final election. Players are encouraged to send their votes towards the other candidates should this occur.

Up with wormhole space!

Glad to see you are more open to improvement and content additions in WH space, per your CSM pre-election snippet :)

If that is non-ironic, thank you for your support. Blink (Hard to tell on these forums sometimes.) I'm really looking forward to Odyssey, which seems to promise some form of new wormhole content.

Greetings,

You have met the 200 vote endorsement thresh-hold in the CSM8 pre-election. You will be included in the full election ballot.

Best Regards,

You should have just made your platform wormholes cause thats all you care about judging on your OP. Communication and Diversity being some dumb buzzwords you tossed in there.
