Mang brings good content. It is as simple as that.

His approach delivers for new players wondering how to get into pvp and to vets who want lols and roams and content.

Whether in RvB, through Ganked, on the CSM or when engaging with all of us, the barrow he is pushing is 'make the game fun'.

You have the vote of this crim Mang.

Hey Mang, I just listened to your LoaC Interview. Fun to listen to, also nice namedrop there!

But... you were petting each others backs quite a lot, especially the beginning was a bit cringeworthy :p

What I was wondering tho.. I often hear "CCP doesn't care about a CSM rep's pet project" yet you talked a lot about specific changes (changes I agree with, btw) that you are pushing for. Can you elaborate a bit how that works, especially if your collagues repeatedly state it doesn't work?

Also, you said that it is very, very important to fill up those 14 candidate slots when voting, even if one is not really sure etc.
I kinda disagree. IIRC with just 5 candidates 90% of your vote will matter, that is a lot compared to pre-STV. At some point I rather risk a small percentage of my vote not counting, than accidently helping the wrong candidate because I was trying to get the 14 full and had to add 6 I knew little about.

What do you think about projected effects get on killmails?
Ship A kills Ship B. Ship C is remote repairing/projecting links/Rsebo/whatever on Ship A. Should Ship C be displayed on Ship A's killmail?

Hi.
What's your stance on off grid links?
If you've already answered the question before you can give me a link to a thread if you like :).


Honestly?

I would love to see them brought ON grid. Just do not see a reasoning about having near inviolable effects available across many many AU when every other effect from resebo to logi to damage itself is pretty much an on grid affair. You want to have the benefit of combat bonuses then you should be committing them to the field and not just orbiting a pos outside the shields or sitting on a station undock etc

Its not really a combat example, however go and look at mining ops in high sec. Boosts are usually coming from an Orca that is on the belt/in the anomaly. Yes the Orca has other uses which merit it being there, but so do boost ships, they can still fight, ewar etc

How about Rorq boosts in Null?

Woo! CSM XI!

Same answer, any sort of boosts should be on grid (Yet to find the mythical rorq supported mining op in null yet, and ive been looking for nearly 3 years!)

And honestly does anyone use the Rorq for anything other than compression in Null?

I've seen Rorq used in null to support mining fleets, I assumed it was common...

But I completely agree with your main point: boosts should be on grid. Perhaps it means that the Rorq needs fixing. Perhaps mining boosts should be an exception. But these issues are less important than the off grid combat boosts.

What harm does it do to have off-grind mining boosts?

Hey Mang - had a question I was going to ask you and decided to post it here instead.

Simply put, you run the largest public fleet group, RvB Ganked, using nothing but a chat channel and mailing list. Do you think that there are an adequate amount of resources and tools to manage and operate a community not tied to corporations or alliances? Incursion communities operate on this same principal, and as was seen during the dissolution of Bombers Bar, this model is limited in scope and does not have the same luxuries such as roles, standings, fleet finder, or CEO replacement.

Put even more simply, there are communities in Eve that exist outside of the constraints of corporations and alliances, do you think that there are enough tools to help these communities thrive and succeed? Can they even be considered legit entities at all?

Can't shoot blues if you don't have any. Long Live NPSI.

Why would you want them elected?

Hi Jayne, thanks for the excellent question. I took a swing at the answer in my column on Crossing Zebras this week. Click here.

Having the opportunity to meet Mangala at Eve Vegas last year was an absolute treat! He was so down to earth and friendly, not once letting any inkling of e-fame affect him. We chatted on the rooftop of the Rio for quite a while as we waited in line for some grub, and talked about everything from Eve to politics (RL) to the hot chicks that were cosplaying. He's such a friendly, approachable, and good listener.

I have to say that having personalities on the CSM that take that kind of time to visit with and chat with people, swallow pride, and listen to us ramble about our thoughts and ideas, while actively engaging us in feedback, debate, and discussion is an invaluable quality in a person.

Mangala, I sincerely look forward to your next term and look forward to the prospect of working with you!

Let me just shamelessly bump Mangala's thread, while also endorsing him for re-election. He was active, involved, and his contributions to the CSM8 process were always insightful and relevant, and he joined me in often looking out for newbro interests. +1, will vote again :)

+1 for Mang. RvB ganked takes a ton of effort/time and it is something that i really look forward to every weekend. We need CSM members who organize such innovative and great events like Ganked.

I truly look forward to Ganked every weekend, and events like this are what keep people involved and interested in Eve. Additionally, RvB ganked was the innovator of NPSI weekly roams I believe. Mangala, as the organizer of an event which keeps people excited about and interested in Eve, deserves all of our votes


See you in the conga tmrw Mang

As an advocate for quality of life improvements, what are your thoughts on the suggested change to cynosural field modules being given different icons when fitted?

It was a point raised on Reddit and I was curious what your response was.
