I thought it was obvious that the mechanic would take into account the value of the losses, not just the number of them, especially in light of the recent discussions about fixing the bounty mechanics to take into account loss value.

As a side note, your comment demonstrates the need for devs to discuss potential changes with the community before they are set in stone, so that interested players like you can "Tiger Team" them and point out potential loopholes and exploits. I've been encouraging this since CSM5, and we've been seeing more community interaction recently -- it's a trend that needs to be encouraged.

I guess the devil is not in the details, but the goon certainly is... Twisted

It will be our loss if Trebor does not get re-elected.

Hello, Trebor! Hope you've been well.

Word on the street is that you are an anime fan - I was wondering if you have ever seen Serial Experiments Lain?

As EvE Online continues to go "further down the rabbit hole" in terms of the way players project themselves digitally into an artificial universe, I sometimes think about the way the human characters meld with "the wired" in that iconic show.

I watched it before I ever discovered EvE...and remembered thinking at the time that if anything was building up to that vision of the future, gaming would involved somehow.

I enjoy Anime but I am not a fan -- and the anime I prefer is the older classic stuff. I haven't seen Lain.

Part of the problem with founding and running one of the original Anime companies is that once you've seen how the sausage is made, you're much less likely to eat it.

There are lots of little tweaks that can and should be done to make industry better and easier.

I posted some PI suggestions for comment just the other day.

Quite frankly, if most of the click-crap was removed from PI (ie: the manual routing) so that it was about telling your infrastructure what you wanted to do and letting it figure out how to do it, then it would be an interesting template for a revision of POS-based industrial processes when POS's get a revamp. It's probably too ambitious, but worth thinking about.

Treb,

I know that the fanfest is held during the none peak time for Iceland to booste the tourist dollar during a really dead period. has there been any talk about a fanfest date change as a CSM platform.

Spring isn't the high-season, but it isn't the low-season either. CCP wants to have FanFest when the weather isn't awful, the hotel rooms aren't too expensive, and the devs aren't depressed from lack of sunlight.

After all, it wouldn't be good if Hilmar got up in front of the crowd and announced "I want to kill myself". Might give the wrong impression about the upcoming expansion. Twisted

As for changing the date, there has been no real discussion of that.

Might be too late, since there's a 30 day paid account period prior to elections to ensure entitlement as a voter.

But don't let that stop you adding to CCP revenue of course, all good for game development. Blink

There's a word for candidates who blithely assume they're going to coast into office -- defeated.

While I am reasonably confident of being re-elected to CSM, the changes to the election system (only 7 asses in Iceland, in both senses of the word) and the increased competition means that making the top 7 is going to require every last vote I can scrounge.

If you think I'm a worthy candidate, then please take the time to make your views known to your in-game friends and encourage them to vote for me.

I'm going to give my esteemed colleague's thread a bump because I 110% agree with this post. The more people that vote, the better chance you have of hearing your voice heard and not being represented by a ‘bloc’ candidate. Research everyone, ask them questions and cast your vote according to who you think can get the job done most effectively, not just who you think is funny or ‘edgy. Blink

+1 to Seleene. That is a gentlemanly bump and, where it not for me giving my vote to Trebor, would influence me towards you. One point I'd like to add that has been pointed out at various times is as CSM rep's power and influence comes from informal relationships that they form with the grunt dev's and CCP employees. Seleene, a former CCP employee, and Trebor, a two time CSM member have this influence in spades.

Many of the "also ran's" that have jumped on the CSM bandwagon this year want to push single issues and narrow interests. This just the opposite side of a coin to CCP's "Jesus features." One single item or narrow list of interest is not the magic panacea for EVE. These CSM noobs, were they to be elected, will have a very glaring lack of contacts and influence within CCP.

Trebor has quietly worked his tail off the last two CSM's to bring balance, value, and benefit to all players. If he's masochistic enough to want to keep doing this free work for CCP then I support him, as I did in the last election.

Trebor has a broad knowledge of the game and has played from HiSec to 0.0 and everywhere in-between when he's not doing the heaps of grunt work that a certain "empty mitten" likes to claim as his sole work and vision.
Vote for Trebor and vote for a real player voice, not the loudest mouth.
