I am a curator of one of the largest EVE online fan sites.

Running by forum estimates we hover around 20 thousand active members.

We have a registered population of 46 thousand members.

Our website is dedicated to EVE online discussion.

We have many Alliance leaders and CSM members who visit our site to discuss their agendas and news.

Our team have worked to welcome ever larger numbers of players from various alliances and corporations, as well as to promote discussion and news from many different sides.

We have many posters who are no longer subscribed to EVE online and yet still continue to visit our site.

And yet anyone who mentions the name of the site is censored automatically by this forum.

If CCP Hilmar is honestly dedicated to repairing the grievous damage to CCP's reputation, if he is open to new strategies to reignite interest in the game, it is time for EVE to no longer censor the name of one of the largest fan communities in EVE online.

I therefore propose that the CSM and CCP make an effort to restore the largest fansite of EVE online to its rightful place as an acceptable word and topic on any official CCP website.

If CCP cannot allow this to occur, I propose that they make clear the reasons for their continued ban to the CSM who should provide guidance and advice on their decision.

You do not have to promote or respect the site, but you should respect the people who visit it as part of their integral EVE experience.

If it's the fail heap website you're referring to, then good riddance. That place is worse than wow forums and diarrhea combined.

I am not a representative of FHC. FHC has 1200 active members and 3800 total members.

However if they are censored I would hope their situation is reviewed as well.

Kugutsumen.com also has the advantage of being the only EVE site with a theme that is safe for work. The pleasant blue on white is similar enough to Microsoft Technet that I don't even have to rush to close the window when my boss comes by.

Edit:
Whoa, I literally can't type the name of the website.
What the heck?
Why is that name profane?

If they are censored it's a good thing.

The original Kugu kind of ticked off CCP what with revealing the whole T20 thing. He was banned and his name censored. The website has been unlinkable ever since.

I knew that story, but it's pretty hilarious that his name is now censored and you can't even link the kugu website.
So is the name of everyone who has been banned censored? lol
