Thank you so much to Ira, TYR3L (hope you liked part 2), Jita, and Chuc. Chuc, I totally support one vote for me, one vote for Seleene. Seleene's a terrific potential CSM delegate, and I'd love to serve with him. Smile

There is just one comment I'd like to make. In some of your replies to questions about problems in Eve, you've responded with some fairly specific ideas about a "fix". While I generally agree with your ideas, I feel CSM members are better placed to facilitate the communication of ideas from the player base to CCP.

Thank you for your support, and you are absolutely correct. That is item #1 on the list of Things I Think About the CSM. However, I'm finding that a lot of EVE players want to know what their potential CSM representatives think about issues, and how they would fix specific problems in the game if they had the direct power to do so. Doesn't mean I can. I fully recognize I'm running for CSM, not Game Developer. Wink But players do have the right to know what I think about specific issues, and that's a good way to share.

I'm a fairly casual player, and sometimes only get a couple of hours a week to play Eve. I currently feel trapped in hi-sec because, without the support of a corp, the potential cost of lost ships and equipment is just too great compared to the profit. How do you feel about the transition from hi-sec to low-sec, for players like me?

First, don't limit yourself! There are an absolute ton of corps out there that cater to the casual EVE player and yet still live in 0.0. My own alliance is one (minor plug, heh). "Play when you can" is increasingly being recognized as a valid way to play EVE by a lot of corps. So when looking for a corp or alliance, just be up front about how much play time you can give and when; I think you'll find a lot of corps are more open than you think.

Low-sec is a good place to look too, though. A lot of faction warfare corps are built around player bases with casual play times, since they don't have to worry about defending sov. So I'd start there.

Not exactly a CSM issue, unless I misunderstood your question. Did I?

I have received the sole endorsement of (in-game name) Marcel Devereux, the developer of Aura for Android phones. This is a fantastic app, and I'm thrilled to be endorsed by someone who knows so much about development of apps for the EVE community.

Thank you, Marcel! Smile

Thanks for taking the time to reply. I was referring more to the stark contrast between hi-sec on low-sec. Can or should anything be done to ease the transition, and perhaps blur the lines between hi and low sec?

One question Rip: you think you are going to be able to spend enough time on CSM stuff? As this has proven quite a problem for several candidates in the past.

Believe he answered that question.
But yes he is and has talked to prevouse CSm members to get an idea of the time commitment.
He has also offered to take on additional roles for the CSM that would take even more time and effort.

I don't believe most people relize just what a time commitment a CSM is.

Are your able to make these time commitments?
How much time will you be spending on the CSM?

You're absolutely right. The summits in Iceland get a lot of press, but the CSM does a ton of work in between on their internal forums with CCP, at the monthly meetings, and keeping EVE players aware of their activities. In talking with Mynxee, she has told me to do a proper job as a CSM delegate requires 5-6 hours per week of work. I'm willing to commit that time (and probably a bit more, if I pick up the responsibility for keeping up the CSM database from TeaDaze, something I'm willing to do).

Originally by: Jita mcheck
Also I would like to say you are one of the better runners as you have a real undestanding of what goes on. Your short post however fails to encapsulate your platform and I sugest people actually read that.

Thanks for your support. Smile

People are interested can read the posts tagged "Jester" on my blog that cover my positions and opinions on the game. There are 12 such posts as of today, so it's a good spread of material. The critical ones are also linked on the right side of the page, under "CSM6 Candidacy".

Good question, and yes, as E man correctly states, this is a job that I wouldn't be "applying" for if I wasn't willing to commit to it. I spoke to several CSM members to get an idea of the time commitment required, and will be devoting at least an hour or two a day to being a CSM member (and much more during busy weeks). I've also volunteered to keep up and host TeaDaze's CSM Database for the new term, and could probably be talked into taking the role of the CSM Secretary as well.

On top of that, I've also commited to hosting regular player round-tables on topics CCP is asking us about to get direct player feed-back on issues. If elected, I expect I'll be doing that once a month or so during my term.

And that doesn't include the time I'm updating my own blog. Wink I invite anyone interested in my run to read it.

Thank you so much! For those that are interested, I've written two long posts regarding why I think CCP is so focused on Incarna and what CSM6 can do about Incarna. The second post, I called "Learn to fly" and covers why I think the development of Incarna can be a hopeful thing and how I think CSM6 can affect the course of Incarna.

I spend months of hesitation because of many points but I made my way for it.

Now I'm successfully living in low sec and became co-CEO, having fun with blues -10 SS has I've never thaught it was possible and belive me, you'll learn hundred times more with those guys than in months of high sec grinding forum reading or high sec grieffing/grieffers.

Low sec living is a large team work where trust is something you can't fail or your days are over, you must fix your goals and the time you can spend playing, and belive me corps living in low sec accepting casual players who want to learn and want play in team, they flow more than you think.

Try to convo some low sec corps dimplomatics or join ig chanels, explain your goals, the time you're willing to spend in game and then find the one that suit you. It's that simple to find one where you can get tons of fun either with winnings or with losses.
We don't ask API keys to our players and we have no trouble with our guys, trust goes on both ways and it's the most important, if they want to give it to us than it's their choice but we don't ask them because this must be a volunteer act of trust. And we're not the only ones doing this so you have all your chances.

Diomedes Calypso made a good point in another thread, so I want to echo my response in here:

Originally by: Diomedes Calypso
The poll questions were so biased and convulted way that I couldn't be confident at all with any answers . "things like priorty over all other actions" should have been answered disagree even if you were in favor of investing more resources in those issues than many others.

Yeah, you've hit on why I ultimately decided not to promote the Vote Match tool on my blog. It was and is a great idea in theory, but the questions really should have been more clear cut and less loaded.

They were great interview questions, but poor poll questions. As a result, it didn't surprise me to learn that most people didn't get more than a 60-65% match with any candidate, and then got a 60-65% match with a lot of them.

Looking over my own answers and how other candidates answered, I realized I could have selected the exact opposite position on many of the questions and not have to change a single word on the comments I posted.

For anyone who matched with me at 60% or more, if you're thinking about voting for me but an issue or two is making you hesitate, send me an EVEmail or post in my Jita Park thread with your concerns and I'll be happy to talk with you about them.

I want to commend Diedra Vaal on what was a great, great idea. But the execution was ultimately flawed. Hopefully, the tool will be a little cleaner next year.

The questions are a bit broad on the vote match website. However, that website was what lead me to vote for you. BUT, it was only after I tried prioritising a number of different ways and really looked at what it was telling me. After I looked at the individual comments and tried a number of different variations it pointed to you being an interesting candidate to find out a bit more about. My recommendations are for anyone using this tool to not take it at face value. If it was twice as long and factored in the candidates comments then maybe you could use it without asking anymore questions. As it is, it is an excellent guide to sift through the large number of candidates. But only as a starting point.

Wait, this is just a video game?

Looking a bit more into the comments is what persuaded me to vote Ripard too. I's a great tool but when you score at least 50% with almost every candidate including ppl you almost never agreed with in the past, it calls for closer examination.

TL;DR:

Vote Ripard!

You're both exactly right. Thank you for your comments and for your support. I felt much better about how I stacked up compared to the other candidates when I saw how the comments were presented, and I'm glad to see they made a difference. Smile

In new news, I'm happy to report that I am one of the nine candidates endorsed by EVE Tribune for a seat on CSM6. I find their comments about me to be fair and accurate. Thanks, guys!

I voted for ****** Pig today. You should too!

(If he turns out to be a ****ty CSM delegate, blame Mynxee, not me. I voted for all of her choices except that dude who said that there were no cynos/caps in lowsec and that other dude who insider traded.)

Hee! Thanks... I think? RazzWink

And yeah, if I turn out to be a ****ty delegate despite Mynxee's endorsement, I think I can guarantee that Mynxee will fly to California and kick my ass. Wink

I was asked by EveNews24 for a response to the RMT expose they did on iskbank last week. I blogged about this last week, but here's the sound bite version I gave EN24:

"The anonymous nature of the receipt of this data makes the ‘chain of evidence’ a little tricky for CCP, and doubtless a ton of the affected toons were just ISK transfer mules, now on inactive accounts. Still, I hope CCP digs into the transaction logs, follows the money to the affected toons, and reduces a lot of them to negative ISK balances. That, to me, is a more fitting and harsher punishment than temporary or permanent bans. Whether they take the time to do this (or even tells anyone they’ve done it) will be interesting to see."

Seleene was smart enough to just point to his blog post. I should have done the same. Laughing

In other news, I am one of two candidates that received the endorsement of the guys behind the EveCommune podcast. Thanks, guys! This podcast also features a fantastic interview with CCP Xhagen, so I recommend everyone go out and have a listen to it.

What a weak response. "I hope" ... "will be interesting" ... Damnit, I want Mynxee back already. Mynxee for Head of CCP IA!

You say that like it's a good thing. I haven't heard that much pointless snickering since I used to watch Beavis & Butthead. I don't mind podcasts by people who are clueless about EVE (I love Lost in EVE) but when they're aggressively wrong and critical about things about which they know nothing ... I turned it off halfway through.

Sorry for the subtlety. But nobody knows where this data dump came from. I'm personally confident that it's on the level. But as a business, CCP has to proceed cautiously and investigate these names. If you had a list of 2000 people who bought ISK and you were the type of person to try to blackmail the seller (which is what happened), wouldn't you be tempted to add a half-dozen or a dozen enemies to it right before you made it public?

Fair enough. Not all blogs are for everyone.

Also fair enough. And it turns out that two out of the four people involved in the Lost in EVE debates chose me as a candidate that they either will or probably will support. Wink
