Please show your support for me and help me become shortlisted by clicking the 'LIKE' button ▬ ▬ ▬ ▬ ▬ ▬ ►

Fellow capsuleers I seek your support for election to the CSM.

About me…
I've played Eve for just over four years including two years plus in the corporation that I'm a member of, The Mighty. I generally play at least four to five times a week for several hours at a time. The draw of the game for me is the player interaction and the sense of community. Plus I'm a space geek and I love to fly my ships.

In RL I'm a graphic designer and a photographer. I live in London in the UK and I have a two year old son. Being able to multi-task whilst juggling the needs of my son means that I have no fears about my ability to do the job of a CSM representative.

Why vote for me?
Whilst I'm very impressed by the sheer volume of text that the other candidates have written on their own behalf, you'll get none of this waffle from me. I'm straight forward, direct and to the point. I have no interest wasting either your time or mine.

One thing that I will say is that I really won't stand here and tell you that I know it all and that's why you should vote for me. I don't and I'm very aware of this.

Honesty and integrity are completely core to me both as an individual and as a player. On this basis, what I can promise to do if I am lucky enough to get voted in is listen intelligently to the arguments, ask pertinent questions where I'm unsure and then advocate hard for what players actually want in the game.

Really importantly I'm not aligned to any block or grouping. I feel that as an independent I can represent what capsuleers actually want rather than just what the people in a given sub-section of the universe think should be a priority.

On a fundamental level, I'd like to see an increase in player democracy. Specifically, I'd like to see a system in place to allow players to suggest and vote on new content so that the game evolves in line with the democratic wishes of the community.

If I am successfully voted in, I'm committed to running regular monthly surgeries where I'll be available for players to approach me individually with their concerns. I will then raise these at the CSM.

I don't have a clever gimmick to win. I'll not be giving PLEX away to select supporters and I don't have a block vote to muscle my way past the other candidates. I simply stand before you as a truly independent candidate with an ability to intelligently and articulately represent your needs truthfully and with integrity and to advocate tirelessly on your behalf.

Thanks you for taking the time to read this.

Please don't forget to click on the 'LIKE' button above to help me make it through into the final shortlisting process.

Update: Made it. Thanks to everyone who supported me.

I support all candidates running. I believe that a diverse candidate pool, like a diverse gene pool, is important to the survival and betterment of democracy.

I totally agree. I think the more diverse the pool of candidates the more viewpoints that will be represented on the CSM.

Interestingly quite a few of the other candidates seem to be quite factional.

This is the one thing that I'm not!

I would be honoured to be on the CSM and proper represntation of player views, rather than politicing and double dealing would be my aim. I guess that's why I do get a block vote, but at least I have some integrity.

What deal did you think that I was offering?

I simply offer honesty and integrity. Or is that the bit that you object to?

Either way, if you, or anyone else for that matter, has questions that you'd like to ask me to ascertain whether I am worthy, feel free to fire away.

If you would like a representative that is committed to acting with integrity and honesty I need some more 'likes' please!

Thanks.

Thanks for your question.

I think the post that you linked to in your post, the one by Malcanis on the same subject is very interesting.

I think my view would be that this seems like a positive change that has a degree of player support and on this basis, it should be something that players get to vote on as a suggested change for the game. Ultimately democracy should be the deciding factor in terms of whether it becomes part of a future expansion.

I hope this clarifies my position on the change. Let me know if you'd like me to expand further.

Unfortnately at the current rate though, I doubt I'll make it through to the shortlist because I only have 25 'likes'. I need 100 minimum.

ty, quoted in thread, to be honest it would have been nice to have more specific details to engender some confidence regarding awareness to the issues relaling to topic than just a "positive" view and then simply answering the question with one of your main political viewpoints.

Fair enough. Here's what is hopefully is a more detailed answer.

I think the suggested system of putting up bounties that's discussed in the post, (specifically the fact that the bounty contract requires a killright) is very well thought out and reasonable. The kill right expiry situation that's mentioned also seems pretty logical to me.

I really like the idea of designing the system so that the bounty contracts can be restricted to groups of players based on specific criteria as well. I think the idea that this kind of situation might lead onto the formation of bounty hunting corps/alliances is a really exciting idea. And I particularly like the fact that this might empower groups of less powerful players to work together to collect a bounty.

Is that more like the kind of detail that you were looking for in my answer? I hope so, but if you have further queries please let me know.

One thing that I would say is that I really won't stand here and tell you that I know it all and that's why you should vote for me. I don't and I'm very aware of this. Does anyone I wonder?

Honesty and integrity are core to me as an individual and as a player. On this basis, what I can promise to do if I am lucky enough to get voted in is listen intelligently to the arguments of both sides, ask question where I'm unsure and then advocate hard for what players actually want in the game.

I have made it clear that I think this is much, much bigger than me or any player. Real democracy in the way that the game evolves is really what I'd like to see and what I'd really like to push for.

Thanks for your message.

Sorry for not being as explicit first time around as you would have liked.

I'd appreciate any additional 'likes' that you might be able to send my way by the way. On a fundamental level, unless I get to the magic 100 point, I don't even make the shortlist.

Either way, I appreciate your support. Thanks.

Thanks for the support.

I guess on a really basic level the key reasons that I'm standing is because I really believe that it's important for players to feel that they can be represented and advocated for honestly and with a high level of integrity. I guess if someone did want to look for the signature part of my manifesto, then this is it.
