Hi everyone,

As promised, CSM8 would like to announce that we will be holding the second of a planned six CSM Town Halls during our term.

CSM8 Town Hall #2 will take place Saturday August 17, at 1900 EVE time.

Following in the footsteps of CSM7 and after a successful implementation in Town Hall #1, we will be continuing to use a dual format for our Town Halls, with them publicly broadcast on EVE Radio during the second half of the DJ Wiggles show. Questions will be taken both in an in-game channel (to be announced) and on the EVE University Mumble server, which will be open to the public during the Town Hall. I'd like to express the CSM's sincere gratitude to the staffs of both of these organizations for their continued assistance with this important event, notably DJ Wiggles and Neville Smit of E-UNI.

Neville posted on the EVE University website the instructions for accessing their public Mumble server, and I recommend you take some time to go ahead and read those instructions.

As always with these events, we will take questions from any EVE player (past, present, future) that wishes to participate and we'll do our very best to answer within the constraints of the time of the event and of course the ever-present NDA.

The focus of this particular Town Hall will be the upcoming Summer Summit, the recent balancing changes to HACs, Command Ships, local reppers, and gang-links, and of course, general questions from EVE players on any topic they desire. For this meeting, while I definitely will accept questions in advance, I'm going to give priority to live questions from those of you on the EVE University Mumble.

Barring unforseen accident or emergency, additional CSM Town Hall sessions are planned for:
* early October;
* mid November (tentative; before the winter summit meeting);
* third week in January (tentative; after the winter summit meeting); and,
* mid March (before the CSM9 elections).

Precise dates and times for these planned Town Halls will be announced by the CSM at a later date.

More detail will be added to this thread (including the in-game channel name) as we get closer to Town Hall #2. Hope to see you there!

(reserved for frequently asked questions or important updates)

If you have questions for the CSM that you would like aired but cannot attend the Town Hall yourself, please feel free to send them to me and I will ask them in your name ("I received an advance question from XXX, who asks...").

Town Halls are awesome. Usually I ramble awkwardly on forums, but on voice I sound competant!

This should be good what with all the upcoming 1.1 changes and of course our Reasonable things project which so many of you have taken part in!

when is the next patch release date and any other small patches before the winter expansion and what else can we expect in them?

T3's need to be versatile so no rigs are necessary ... they should not have OP dps and tank

ABC's should be T2, remove drone assist, separate HAM's and Torps range, -3 HS for droneboats

I've posted this on the EVE University main website:

Instructions for setting up access to the UNI public Mumble server can be found here:

We will make sure we have UNI system admins on hand to help the CSM8 representatives with proper set-up on our public Mumble server.

Any chance that the minutes could be linked into these threads once they've been written up please? I'm going on a google hunt now though.

Loved the CSM Reasonable Things project and was a great idea guys\gals. Here's hoping we see some of the things making their way into the Winter Expansion.

Since you asked, here, I will answer, here.

The minutes are being written as we speak and then they are submitted to CCP for the 'NDA' check.

As soon as they come out, in whole or in part, trust me, we will shout it from the rooftops and tell strangers in the street. I'll try to remember to mention it here, as well.
