So why don't you just tell us what you stand for, aside from voter reform (which will not get you elected, by the way)?

I stand for representing the entire EVE Online community to the best of my ability, because it is my belief that listening to all of the constituents is the only forthright and conscientious way to serve as an elected representative. To this end, I have been making threads and joining discussions to ask people exactly what they think about various issues and aspects of the game, and thereby soliciting them for their expressed desires. That is my one campaign promise: that I will to the best of my ability present to CCP with reasoned arguments the expressed desires of the constituency.

To that end, I have assembled a platform which addresses many aspects of the game. Here's a few things off the top of my head which is not at all to be construed as a complete list. With respect to the fact that this thread is now in Jita Park, it was originally in General Discussion and never was it my intention that this thread would be my candidacy thread so you can look forward to a more complete list in the near future with a better-presented format in its own thread.

Regarding High Security Space

  • Get rid of the period of time during which a POS is literally invulnerable;
  • Address the relative imbalance of High Security "deathstar/dickstar" POS versus the power required to remove them;
  • Get rid of the dialog box and automatic deactivation of modules that occurs when using remote assistance modules on an entity which has received aggression from a new source, or make it an option to disable it;
  • Add to entities using remote assistance modules on an second entity with aggression a full aggression timer, which like any other aggression timer prohibits docking or activating star gates;
  • Proposal for the iteration of missions with the Incursion-style AI and functionality to provide group PVE content at all levels of missions so that people have an in game reason to work together, similar to instanced dungeons in traditional MMO games;
  • Proposal for the review of and alteration of Level 5 missions with regards to the proposed "Incursion-style missions," in the previous point, which would have a separate functionality;
  • Introduce an active module which "cloaks" the contents of a ship's cargo bay



Regarding Low Security Space

  • Oppose the introduction of interdiction bubbles to Low Sec, to preserve its unique gameplay;
  • Address the fact that Low Sec is divided into two classifications, 0.4, and 0.3 and below, with regards to anchorable structures at POS
  • With regards to the above, modify the anchoring requirements for starbase structures, particularly those involved in drug manufacturing, to be anchorable in all low security systems
  • Iterate faction warfare with unique, non-mission objectives and means to produce rewards - in short, doing the PVP portion of Faction Warfare should be more profitable if done optimally than running Level 4 missions in a stealth bomber
  • Introduce non-Sansha, faction specific Incursion-style raids on non-Faction Warfare systems

No, democracy doesn't empower the masses,
it empowers the biggest group of people who believe voting makes a difference.
That group does not necessarily have to be "the masses".

This biggest group can be anything from 1% to 100% from all who are allowed to vote,
but usually is 1% to 100% from all who vote,
which normally is far less than 100% of all those who are allowed to vote. :)

Democracy is a PITA. People just like it because they believe they have a say in things.
Those who are observant enough will realize that it's just a huge scam,
unless one lives in switzerland ... and even there i'm not so sure about it.

@ Lyris Nairn

Everyone's entitled to their own opinion and judging from the amount of people that will be running for a position on the CSM there will be a lot of opinions floating about. If everyone on the council agrees with eachother there is no real need to have more than one person on it.

This makes it all the more important to distinguish between the different candidates. Since you and The Mittani are both members of Goonswarm it might already be asked but:


What are the things, regarding the topics you'll advocate on behalf of the EVE community, that are in contradiction to the ones The Mittani will favour?


Oh and 'bump'.

Many people on this forum seem to believe that The Mittani is some sort of cartoonish evil dictator for whom pleasure is derived by the application of power for its own sake, to the detriment of the common folk "just because". I think the most important difference between myself and The Mittani is that I am not such a figure, and that I am not advocating for the Null Sec agenda over the concerns of the rest of the public. I wish to empower the "Pubby Proletariat," instead of ignore them.

Hello, space friends!

I just wanted to make a thread for all of you—yes, even you!—to let you know that you are my very best space friend, and that I am so very happy to have met and known you. I know that a lot of times there are some very angry, bitter or contrary words that get spit out on these forums, and overall it can sometimes leave a negative impression. But that's okay, because then there comes a moment when you realize that Lyris has kittens, and that you have a space friend named Lyris, and that correspondingly everything is just fine in the world of tomorrow. Today in kitten news, Bojangles took a nap on my jumper which left it covered in shed hair for which I was thoroughly embarrassed to discover. What a silly cat! Mittens the kitten, whom is not to be confused for Mittens the CSM7 candidate, during a fit of energy toppled a floor lamp, became frightened by the crash, and hid inside my left boot. She is growing up swiftly, and recently we had her spayed at the veterinarian's office. My fiancée and I love our cats very much, and they are a great comfort whenever one of us is stressed about work or sad about people not knowing the good news that I am Lyris Nairn, space friend to all.

In closing, let's be friends! Oh, and vote for me for CSM7.


I am very excited to see more goon candidates, in fact I'd like to see hundreds! (5000/100 =... votes per candidate.... Big smile )

Best of luck in the upcoming elections!

There will be no Goons voting for me. Commisar Mittens is chairman for life. Sorry to disappoint you.


edit: It's actually a stipulation of me being able to run at all without being kicked from GoonWaffe that my campaign be kept entirely off of Goonfleet dot Com, and that I do not encourage Goons to vote for me.

Wow, you are going to really start out with at least one hand tied behind your back. All the anti-goon backlash and none of the support. Yikes!

Yes sadly Issler, quite the opposite of what you where hoping. Lyris will not be dividing the goon vote, she'll be dividing yours.

The only end-game content in EVE Online is the crap that makes you rage quit.

I am pretty sure the folks I am looking for to support the Voice of Reason Party would not consider voting for her because of the goon thing. So no effect to the party. But could confuse some other candidates support base.

Should be an interesting election!

Yeah, pretty much. But anyway we're a group consciousness so this is par for the course as we are literally incapable of disobeying orders (except "the gate is red" "don't warp to me at 0" etc etc).

So uh, yeah. It's all up to you guys if you want your space friend to be voted.

Lyris Nairn,

Although I have greatly appreciated your various textual cultural products which were crafted on the popular EVE GATE holonet site for capsuleers, I must inform you that you have gone too far this time.

Space friend, I am reporting you to the GIA for Null Treason. Catering to the Empire space publicus is a crime punishable by instant reeducation. Although you were always kin to both Goon and the races of man, a week of enhanced interrogation techniques will do you much good.

May your reformatting be prompt and decisive.

I did not lie. I never do.

I don't need to.

I simply did not think that is was possible for you to go back to your pubbie ways. You have crossed into the other side. Let us pray that it is only a temporary relapse.
