I have been informed that I am ineligible to run as CSM. More specific details can be found on my blog:

http://evenewb.blogspot.com/2009/10/pop-quiz-or-why-i-wont-be-running-for.html

I appreciate the feedback and support that everyone gave but it appears I was premature in announcing a campaign before being officially accepted as a candidate for CSM by CCP. Thanks everyone.

Well, i wish you luck. Here are the things why i will not vote you, just to help you in a long run.

1. Anyone with numbers in their name is a BIG no no.
2. Your suggestions lag imagination and i don't find them special or much needed.
3. I think you lack the experience.

I wish you luck

I approve of this. Spectre is a great FC and knows the game very well. I think some of the changes he is proposing would make the game a lot more fun to play for people who live in lowsec.

1: anyone with lord in their name is more of a douche
2: his suggestions represent something a large number of us have an interest in
3: I think you dont know spectre, what he does in real life, or what kind of experience he may or may not have.

NEXT!

Anyways, good luck spectre, I think you are actually a good candidate, no matter how mucgh i like to slag off on you in our own forums, you've got the level head needed for this, and the sincerity required to represent all of us low sec people.

Spectre is the kind of CSM we all need! Hes experienced in nearly everything the game has to offer! Hes fair! He knows his proverbal ****. Do you want some other second rate electee? whos only intrested in one thing and working towards thier own goals and not yours?

Spectre can give us the CHANGE we need. All you NEED to do is vote.

I don't know spectre, if i would i probably would vote for him. I just still see no new or imaginative ideas here. Also, name does not make a person, unless it has numbers in it. You don't see a person with name like "John 230982", but you might run into a lord from time to time. This **** breaks immersion.

Hello everyone and thanks for your interest and responses! I would please ask you that you do not let this devolve into a flamewar/trollfest until at least the second page!

While I respect your opinion I do not see how numbers attached to my name indicate anything about my capability to be an effective member of the CSM.

2. Your suggestions lag imagination and i don't find them special or much needed.


I am only interested in being imaginative if it is beneficial to the game and its players. I am proposing and advocating these changes because I feel they are necessary, not because I am trying to impress or wow anyone with my whiz bang revolutionary ideas.

3. I think you lack the experience.


In Eve alone I have been playing for well over a year and a half (but I have a huge amount of experience with MMO's and gaming in general). I have spent a majority of my time PvP'ing in lowsec but I also have experience to varying degrees with missioning in highsec up to Level 4's, mining, exploration, PvP in nullsec and trading. As of this moment I have approximately 2300+ kills and 250 deaths according to BattleClinic that show I fly a large myriad of ships as well as engage in many different types of combat against a variety of targets. I have CEO'd a successful corp that is still running strong. I write a blog that has been active for almost the entire time I have been playing and am very involved in the Eve blogging community.

In other words, I am not sure why you would claim that I am not experienced enough. I would be more than happy to hear more specific thoughts on what I am lacking in terms of being able to represent lowsec and the pilots of New Eden on a more broad scale. Thanks!

Bentley, you don't seem to know how internet forums are supposed to work - you're expected to take things personally and to defend your original viewpoint to the death. This "rational response" thing just makes you look weak...

You'll get my vote Spectre - if you can change someones mind on an internet forum, then you'll have no problem with CCP.

Oh, and can you take Python Cartel to Amamake more often to keep Heretics busy so I can pick up the leftovers? I'd appreciate it!

Hey Spec,

Looking at your OP it appears you have the makings of a successful politician already. You present a nice, concise, bullet-pointed manifesto declaring that if elected you propose to "change stuff" without actually indicating what those changes would be.

Any chance you could give us a sneak preview of the exact changes you would propose to make?

Thanks in advance.

Edit: Knackers - just noticed the very last line so ignore this post - I'll check out your blog.

Edit#2: I see you are proposing to make Frigates more viable in small gang and solo encounters which is, to my mind, a truly noble cause so I will probably chuck you a vote (assuming I remember). I was recently involved in a thread on here somewhere where some numbskull was ranting about Stasis Webifiers. It was a ****-poor post but it got me thinking and I do actually reckon the removal of this "magic space-treacle" module would make Frigates less vulnerable against larger ships. Where would you stand on an issue like that?

Half of my votes as well. Good intents, some of your implementations and fix-it ideas are too far-fetched (systems that +5's can't enter, for example.) Conversely, the pirate community would love a real buff besides "lolFW" or "HURR u can has Battleship rats )))"

Tune up some of your solutions and you've got a solid platform

Webs were already nerfed pretty significantly during the nano-nerf and frigates have benefited quite a bit since that time (less affected by webs means harder for larger guns to hit them, AF's got buffed overall, small rigs are now extremely cheap, etc). In addition, larger ships already have to either bring anti-frigate friends or make sure they are fit with their own neuts/drones/small weaponry to ensure they don't become victim to a bunch of smaller targets they can't hit.

In other words, I think the frigate lineup as a whole and how they compare/engage with larger ships is already pretty well balanced. I am much more interested in making frigate sized ships useful/viable throughout all parts of lowsec via changes to the security status, timers and sentry guns. Right now you are limited to engaging pretty much only at planets, belts and faction warfare plexes which is silly considering a tiny portion of the population ever enters these places.

Thanks for the good word Mirror. I think you may have misunderstood or misread my idea about the systems thing. I was advocating that there be perhaps a small number of systems in lowsec that are only accessible to players who are -5 (not +5). These systems can have a sort of anti-CONCORD police that keeps the peace. These systems could become hubs in lowsec to try and alleviate the fact that most negative sec status players are forced to have alts to haul goods for them out of high security space not to mention that right now there are no unique benefits to being blinky but tons of negatives. Obviously there are lots of issues to work out around this sort of idea, such as:

* How do you prevent people from simply camping the exit/entrance to these hubs?
* Do you allow high security status players to still enter so that they can help stock goods?
* Do you allow people to have offices at these stations?

...and so forth. The real thing I am trying to do here overall is to spur conversation about how to make lowsec unique, viable to live in without requiring an alt character and profitable/fun for all types of players. Whether or not any of my specific ideas ever come to fruition is not important as long as they help spur conversation and actions that eventually do get implemented and make lowsec (and all of Eve) a better game.

You would have my vote, had not for the following reasons:

1. Pirate CSM candidates have (by past experience) been failures (i.e lark).
2. Python/Spec, from my personal knowledge, are a pretty ****ty example of pirates. They are a nice group of people (mostly), and def. know how to have a good time - but if we look at what defines most successful pirates in eve, Python/Spec will be lacking.
3. Spec are a good political, granted - but some of his advocated changes/improvements reek of either hypocrisy/bull**** fillers. "* Encouraging Tactics Beyond Blobbing and Camping" is a nice saying, but when Spec/Python spend 90% of you time ingame either engaging at uneven odds (you being favorites) or camping the Jel gate, I worry that you'll be unable to offer any new insight/ideas regarding other tactics - especially since you seem to rather stay docked than undock and try other methods (that ARE possible in this iteration of the game) of gameplay except blobing/gatecamping.

Also, although its not a "proper" reason - from my "interactions" with spec in game, I find him to be not just a whinny little *****, but also a sad example of a guy that would resort to looking up what his opponents do in RL for the purpose of having ammo in a local smack war. And honestly, as much as I like metagaming/spying/corpthieves/etc - attacking someone by using his RL in a game is kinda poor taste to say the least - and Id rather not have someone like that represent my needs/wants (especially if said person actually has to work with CCP).

Be it as it may, even if my personal reasons to dislike Spec are irrelevant to most of you - unless he can prove he's serious about improving the game and not just ****ing around like lark did - Id place my vote with someone else, and I'd suggest other people do the same.
