I am declaring my candidacy for CSM in 2011 under the campaign message:

"There have been too many Content Expansions. It is time CCP spend the time to tweak the current mechanics to balance the game and fix antiquated concepts. While the new content expansions are always fun and exciting when they are released, there are more important things that need to be done. It is time to fix the mechanics that ruin the reputation of EVE. We need to stand to insure the current systems in EVE get fixed and there repair is a priority. I will be the player that makes EVE stronger.

Currently, my biggest concerns are to neutral remote reps, bounty hunting, and corp taxes.

I will be available for conversation on my ideas as often as possible. I plan to make sure my ideas are completely developed and approved by my supporters in order to make sure that EVE becomes a better more functional game.

Finally, even if I am an alternate I will not resign for any reason, especially to make a point."

I plan on spending time on this forum but most of my content will be viewable with commentary on my campaign blog: dyco-eve.com

MANALAPAN DAILY LOTTO

In hopes of encouraging my supporters to let me know of their support and get feedback on my ideas players that announce their support or provide constructive thoughts and feedback on my ideas in this thread or on my blog will be placed into a pool. Every day there will be a drawing and the winner will receive a random prize. These prizes will be worth a minimum of 50M ISK.
First drawing will be at 3/5/11 02:00 EVE TIME. This will go on until the announcement of the CSM Winners.

For a list of those in the drawing and the list of winners go to the EVE Post or my Campaign Blog.

Would you not consider resigning if you could use it as a medium that could ultimately benefit the community or the game, if there was someone qualified to take your seat or alternate position, even if you had to give up your free trips to Iceland?

Goodluck, and great choice of design for your website, it looks great.

Yours,
Serious.

I am not denying that resigning could be used as a medium to benefit the community. My thoughts on that action is that I would be ultimately disappointing the community by surrendering my position to someone they felt was less qualified (less votes). My goal is represent the community interest and I feel that could always be best achieved by maintaining any position within CSM even alternates.

What is this?
No mention of your previous scamming?
Why the heck would anyone vote for someone who was quite proud of their ability to scam people out of isk?

Granted, you did not force anyone to deposit isk with eve bank, but come on...you think we would not remember?

hmm?

Nope I take no attempt to hide my scam. I was very adamant in this on my campaign last year. Scamming is integral part of EVE that is one of the major elements that separates it from other MMOs. My history in this aspect means I understand that realm of the player base and know what parts of it need to be fixed for the benefit of scammers and non-scammer alike.

If you have to ask what's right with it you're pretty bad at making balance decisions.

Also TMA yourr scam.

Alright here is my thought on it. It makes the HIC more useful in empire space when generally it is typically just heavily used in 0.0.

I was asking for your opinion against the idea or for the idea I suppose I could have just been assuming based on your smiley.

Actually the HIC is very useful in empire space (Hi and Low). In some cases it is too useful.

For starters, with damps the way they are you are completely destroying the raison d'etre for training Gallente Recons outside of a few circumstances where having a Cov Ops cloak on them is good.

Secondly you are adding functionality to a whole class of ship that is, essentially, the sole preserve of one race and improving upon it so unless the other chap wants to shell out on a faction scram and a gang booster he's going to be outclassed.

Now, long range scrams on Gallente EWAR ships are pretty powerful tools. They are mitigated by the fact that these vessels are relatively weak in terms of EHP and Deeps and have terrible cap and fitting. HICS tank like a brute and can still be capable of putting out deeps equivilant to (or in some cases greater than) a Gallente Recon (and yes, they should probably be looked at at some point in time, sooner rather than later I hope).

It would make HICs hugely overpowered.

Thank you Larkonis,

I didn't even think about how that would antiquate the use of the Gallente Recons (odd because my main ship is a Lachesis). Based on that I think I will be removing it from my campaign.

Winternight I too have nostalgia for many of the old textures and definitely do support that.

Put a scram on your Hic, fixed.

If this is the calibre of your ideas, I do not hold much hope for you.

What would you do to increase small gang warfare in 0.0, atm the sov holders just dock up, a minor annoyance at best.

I replied to this earlier and my history with DBANK means I understand the needs of MD players and what does not work in the current system. I always have taken full responsibility for what happened with DBANK and while I have mixed feelings about it the experience gained from my involvement makes me a unique candidate that would be valuable to CSM.

I actually removed this concept from my campaign after significant discussion here and in game. I am actually compiling a concept to push for small gang warfare that will be more a compilation of current concepts I have that will be steps towards more small gang warfare. I will be updating here when that is completed, hopefully, tomorrow night.

What sort of improvements are you for?

The game incidentally can't survive without a stream of new content, but fixing old content should be of equal importance as well.

I obviously do want new content but exactly like you said fixing old content needs to be of equal importance.

My current high priority objectives for improvements are:

Cyno Nerf (Campaign Link) (Forum Post)

Neutral Remote Repair/Buff (Campaign Link) (Forum Post)

Bounty Hunting (Campaign Link) (Forum Post)

Corporation Taxes (Campaign Link)

Agent Standing Bonus (Campaign Link)

Easy to Share Bookmarks (NEWLY ADDED) (Campaign Link) (Forum Post)


I also have more concepts and ideas as well as my opinions on several commonly proposed changes HERE

The worst thing is it wasn't even a proper premeditated scam. He just screwed some stuff up trying to run the thing legitimately and then bailed out on his committments rather than trying to put things right. So, clearly a reliable individual you can trust with your vote ...

You can trust me with your vote just not your ISK. Is there anything about my campaign you particularly dislike?

Wait, I thought the issue that you burned out, but was it that your DBank project just fell apart and you stopped posting?

They would be quite the same thing. Burned out so instead of attempting to recover DBANK just took the ISK and didn't play for a while.

People posted legitimate reasons why the change was a bad idea, and he admitted that he hadn't thought of those things at first, and that they had changed his mind. You would prefer someone who would continue backing a bad idea even after being given many good reasons why it should not be implemented? What purpose would that serve? How could that possibly be seen as a good quality to have for someone who is going to help shape the future of Eve?

And when did you first realize that you don't actually like Eve?

All of the dishonest methods of earning isk (scamming, pirating, stealing, etc.) are important parts of the game, and help separate Eve from the lesser MMOs. I would never support a CSM candidate who didn't endorse these aspects of Eve, as removing any or all of them could seriously hurt, if not kill, the game.
