Skye Aurorae - Vote a 7 Year Old Girl onto CSM7 (or at least her father as a legal representative)

Yes I know she's one of the more famous Eve players, what with her love for space whales, ganking miners and shouting 'Spaceships' excitedly, but she's only 7 years old and can't apply to the CSM. That is why, I, Scott Manley, as her father feel compelled to represent her interests and ensure that Eve remains a place where noobs can come in and wreak havoc with veteran players.

Here's what Skye Has To say.

I have stood for the CSM in the past, finishing in the middle of the pack.

I could bombard you all with issues, such as the Titan blob problem which is slipping into runaway blob territory, or the repeated delays of the oft-requested 'Bookmarks on the Overview' feature. But instead I shall point you at my youtube channel where I demonstrate that I can teach a child to play Eve better than some adults, as such this skill with children should translate directly to dealing with the other CSM members and CCP devs.

But, I hear you ask 'I am not 7 years old, how can voting for you help me' - while many of the candidates will be attempting to appeal to a specific slice of the eve demographic, I can honestly say that I have hands on experience with everything in this game. I look at the universe of eve with a scientific eye and will strive to avoid championing changes that benefit one group at the expense of another unless the science supports the suggested course of action. I delight in playing devils advocate in any debate, willing to argue a point for the intellectual exploration rather than any implied support for such a position.

If you're used to real world politics you'll see politicians sticking to a party line or religious belief even to the point of ludicrousness, unwilling to appear like they might be flip flopping or 'too mainstream'. This is unproductive, the politics that I champion will be those which are best for the game.

That is not me, I have flown practically every ship in the game, I've run missiong, belt rats, mining, pvp, industry, economics and even meta gaming, I've played in hi-sec, low-sec, 0.0 and wormhole space. There's very little in the game that I can't claim to have direct experience, so when an issue comes up I am already prepared. And I will be sure to employ every tool I have to ensure the right thing gets done.

In an ideal world everyone playing Eve Online will be this excited:

These are merely the likes, I imagine that once the campaigning starts that the skeletons in the closet will be laid bare and favourites will change.

Now here's some more things to consider for Skye's candidacy, although she is only 7 years old she is experienced beyond her years and has imagination driven by her favorite TV show - Doctor Who. She knows all about risk vs reward and takes Trapeze classes, she can do more push ups than anyone I know.

As her advisor and proxy my extensive knowledge of Eve, science and video games in general would be brought to bear in service of the CSM's goals. I have degrees in Physics, Astronomy & Computer Science, so I can speak authoritatively on the facts, fiction and implementation of interstellar conflict. I've even provided technical assistance to bestselling authors and have direct experience in reconciling the story and the science.

But let this post not be some simple bump, here, have another couple of videos I've made on the subject of Eve online - see it's not all little girls playing Eve.

How about my 15 minute intoduction to Eve Online, telling people the important stuff they need to know before they even start.
