Some of you may have noticed the recent drama llama. Normally, such a thing would have been kept internal; another name for our ever-growing ****list, nothing more. Andrea Skye would have been removed from corp, we would have held a fundraiser to get Spectre back on his feet, and we would go about our business.

Since Iím posting this here, clearly we have another problem.

You see, in The Python Cartel, we have two layers of directors: Sub-Directors, which handle stuff such as voting on member applications, handling corp logistics, helping with projects, that sort of stuff. And then there are the full directors. Each full director controls exactly 1\3 of the corporate shares. This system is in place in the event that I, as formal CEO, go MIA or go rogue and need to be replaced.

I control 1\3 of the shares. Andrea Skye controls another 1\3. And Spectre3353, the victim of the robbery, controlled the last 1\3.

If you havenít guessed, that gives Andrea Skye a 2\3 shares majority.

The only time he wasted in initiating his vote, was enough time for me to log on and watch him do it.

CEO roles revoked

Andrea Skye is running for CEO in The Python Cartel.. Your roles as CEO have been revoked for the duration of the voting period.


In 24 hours, I will be removed as CEO from the corp that Iíve spent years building up from the ground.

If it was just a theft of our assets, weíd just have kept it internal. But now, our entire corp and alliance itself is being stolen. The corp of which we have been members of for over a year. The theft of assets from a long-term member is something that can be forseen. The theft of our corp and alliance itself, however, is possibly the most deplorable act anyone can do in this game.
I suppose all I can say is, well played, Andrea Skye. Enjoy the corp and the alliance.

~Golden Helmet,
(Former) CEO, The Python Cartel.

Even though I never fought against you, or with you, it'll be sad to see you guys go (this is assuming the corp/alliance turns to ****).

Good luck in any future endeavors you might have. o7

Goodness.

My sympathies to members of the alliance. I think it's a generally terrible idea to give your passwords to people, but it's very sad that spectre's unfortunate error in judgement (of Skye's character, if nothing else) is going to encompass so many others, when in theory your share policy is really rather sensible.

The way you set up the shares, for the reason you say you did, was totally moronic.


It is common in the world to get hosed when you do something stupid. You did, and you were.


If you wanted a mechanism for fixing CEO if you disappeared, there are other ways that are much less risky.

No sympathy here.

Wow dude, just wow. I never held much love for the Python Cartel, though I held nothing really against you guys, but that's just lame. I wish you the best and hope things don't turn to complete fecal matter for you.

Time to start a super corp!

I think you should call it Andrea Skye's gynecologist.

I've never had any respect for Python. Maybe with a new, more competent CEO this will change.

Props to Andrea for an epic takeover.

This just means you did a good job as pirates.

My cold dead lump of coal, and by that I mean my heart goes out to you for this loss assuming it isn't the best troll ever. If it it my applause for it. Otherwise, damn, that kinda sucks. Good luck to you in the future.

Sorry to hear about the loss of the corp assuming it's not a troll. (guess we will see soon enough)

Assuming it's not a troll, then I hope you can get back on you feet with something new.

btw.. I was a bit sad to see that Novamako dropped my Huricane's spare parts in Amamake after our little scrap in Taff the other night. Please ask him to take better care if he happens across my loots again.. Laughing

I come home from work to see that my only home in EVE just got shat all over by someone I trusted for 3 goddamn years...

It's BS like this that makes me hate this game sometimes.

I know I'm pretty new, but if Spec petitions this to get his stuff back, um wouldn't he get smacked by the ban stick too for sharing his account with Sky.

Yeah, but either way spectre loses his account, but this way they keep their corp.

Since spectre appears to be intent on quitting, very little is lost, and not to put too fine a point on it, the ban stick would hardly be inappropriate, since... he shared his account with skye. QED.

I don't know whats worse, stealing so little via abuse of account sharing, or being ****ed your stuff got jacked after giving your login details to someone.

It is actually one of the more complex and advanced forms of crime in this game and normally people are applauded for this in C&P except ... that you shouldn't do it with having access to someone else's account. That way it goes beyond the game. I find it a little strange that you don't stress that detail so much in your post.

Also it is a little strange that you have divided your shares like that. Makes you pretty vulnerable in my opinion. Doesn't CCP help corps out in a case of CEO's gone missing?

I guess that leaves you with quite some time to save your corp's stuff init? No doubt people would follow you to a new corp, rite?

/tinfoil hat mode

Also have you considered Andrea and Spectre working together in this? Each writing up a blog post (outside of official forums and not something CCP would react to with a banhammer) to hide Spectre giving his shares to Andrea to make him CEO and if he would be quitting EVE anyway, perhaps even giving over his account to him for good and that they are still chums after al?

Anyway, whatever happened: good luck gusy. I liked your corp a lot.

p.s. Is there a relief fund where we can send our isk to?

pretty much this.. too sad he's done it for 3 bil though - sucks to be him tbh

on the other hand, I do believe it was Spectre's fault after all.. This is Eve, and of all the people, you?

My best wishes for Python reborn
