Players are still confused why that should not be acceptable if the mark is foolish enough.

Can't hurt. What are they going to do, ban us all?

Sounds so wrong


Cierra is very wrong.

Daughter of the illustrious Salvador Sarpati, I can sell you standings with Serpentis fighters for 500m isk (or a half hour chat with Cierra on Vent)

Can we petition to CCP to dismiss CSM members for gross incompetence and inability to communicate? Or at the very least force them to take courses in public relations?

I assume in your wording the Hiroshima bomb had some side effects. Calling this some unhapiness is like calling the Titanic a boating accident. Again I am slightly confused.

I look forward to future productive discussions with CCP, and hope to be able to share results of those in the future.


Is that stuff on your nose chocolate ?



Be nice, she is only trying to be diplomatic. Don't shoot the messenger and all that.

I for one welcome the contact as we are all left to our own devices (and could end up starting a riot).

I think CSM could be a much better flameshield for CCP.

As it is, they're adding fuel to the blaze

Of course you can. They treat all petitions on a case by case basis!

No, no. He's right. Shooting them is no good. You tar and feather them and send them back as a message.

They are still having "internal discussions" about it.

I have some problem on seeing how you could say anything to defend this change without the words function as fuel.

So we should just not discuss it at all and trust the CSM to read our minds? I wasn't aware that using a forum intended for discussion about the game to discuss the game was "ineffective rioting". Last I heard, rioting worked pretty well to reverse the Incarna trainwreck!

Brushing us off with "okay we're gonna yap with CCP about this and release a crappy devblog 2 months from now that doesn't actually address anything" sucks.

Productive posting is fine and great. I use it as a CSM member to distill into better feedback; you're right that I don't read any minds. I also receive substantial assistance in representation via private messages such as evemails. I do also *play* the game, and have been both perpetrator and victim of the types of scams covered under this update. The bit about rioting in this thread was to attempt to dissuade people from making 100x posts saying "this is bad ccp sux see the csm agrees"; contrary to popular belief, large public outcry is largely ineffective in getting anything done.

I was unaware that posting acknowledging concerns and promising to use the tools at my disposal to work to resolve them constituted a "brush-off". I meant what I said when I said that I'd seen a lot of good come out of the CSM process, more than just "a devblog once in a while". The fact that we work primarily under NDA and outside of the public eye can make it hard to see, especially when our efforts avert a crisis instead of responding to one.
