Capsuleer will not be part of my campaign discussions, as I have gone over this repeatedly.

The only thing I will mention regarding open source is that it is not simply a matter of going open source...

I agree basic mechanics of gameplay are important, but I also believe that if a CSM delegate has never research data cores, it shouldn't be something held against their contributions to the CSM.

You may not want to include relevant facts in your discussions, but why you disabled a very popular app when it was clear you couldn't make money off of it, rather than open-sourcing it is something that folks will wonder about. Especially since it indicates something of a mercenary attitude.

After all, if you won't open-source a product that you've already earned dev cred for since you can't personally benefit from it anymore and refuse to open-source it to help the community, what's to say that you're not looking for time on the CSM as resume building experience as long as it can help you personally, and not really interested in donating your time to help the community?

To say nothing of the fact that it's more than a bit odd for you to claim it isn't a part of your campaign discussions. You' ve spent a bunch of text talking about how you've interfaced with CCP. Surely you're not saying that you did all that for something other project?

Without actually addressing your reasons for doing what you've done, it sets up a dangerous precedent.

As for datacores, if datacore production was a major issue that the CSM was expected to advise CCP on? Then yes, it would be a big deal if some candidates had no idea what a datacore was, how you got it, or why it was necessary. It's also somewhat off putting that you're comparing the total reworking of nullsec logistics and capital combat maneuvering mechanics... to datacore harvesting.

I could elaborate this point and talk about how every alliance knows the location of every other alliance JBN, and more than likely, the passwords for using them. It would reinforce the point about how broken that system is.

Thanks for the support!

Obviously if jump bridges are the begin all and end all to your eve, Roc is probably not going to be your candidate. But there are players who really don't care much about jumpbridges. So this issue isn't important to them and they will vote for things they care about. It's democracy 101.

As for his personal business well it’s his personal business. Just because he spent time on something related to eve instead of apps that have nothing to do with eve that doesn't change.

Have you always offered your work products for free?

Do you think the eve community has some sort of natural right to have people give away their work for free – unless it comes from ccp? Yes I know that is how ccp currently wants it but is that right or good?

Personally I think eve would be better off if they allowed 3rd parties to profit from their work. Yes I know that may sound horrible to some. Being able to profit from your work is so “mercenary.”

I wish he would speak up about this because I think players would benefit, but it seems it is not on his platform. So be it.

FYI, and has already stated in the articles linked on page 1. Capsuleer was a join venture between two people. This inherently makes it more difficult to release code that isn't owned by a single person.

Sadly Roc, I can't back your candidacy.

I looked over your campaign, and I'm just not sure you recognize the difference between what you should and should not get involved in. You hit on all the "hot topics" of the forums, but not on the wisest approaches, and I never saw you say, simply, "I don't know enough to have an opinion"

Sometimes knowing your limitations is the most important feature of a candidate.

Good Luck anyway.

Actually, I've said that many times. There are many areas of EVE I don't know about. My mandate is the communication of issues, keeping the dialogue ongoing.

I appreciate your honesty and candor, and believe you should support the candidate you feel best suited to the role. I'm sorry it's not me, but am thankful you took the time to drop me a note.

I was kind of surprised that you didn't have anything written about RP. Because I think RP-ers are people that are hardly represented in the CSM I was kinda disappointed to see you hardly mention it. I'm going to assume that you will probably overlook the RP side of things as much as almost any other candidate.

I might yet change my mind if you write about your view on RP in EVE: what is good, what is bad, what is ugly...

Otherwise I'm left to voting for the one candidate that actually knows RP-ers exist and wants to represent them and improve their experience too. Sad Please... give me a choice...

Please excuse me as I've been off work ill the last few days in real life. I still have many topics to cover in my campaign posts, and RP is a very important aspect of Eve Online to me.

So what you thinking about various RP issues such as the Live Events, the end of Chronicles and so on?

I'm thinking to enforce a policy at the CCP workplace that all employees must be in character 24/7

Okay quick note, why is everyone trying to make eve to easy, lets take the JB issue as a prime example

If i want to know where my enemies JB's are i can simply warp around the moons in a system, okay it may take me a few minutes but hell if eve was meant to be simple everyone would start with 50mil SP able to fly a titan and get a gift of 3Bil Isk per month.

For those who complain about the big power blocks with all this space, boo hoo, guess what, they earned it by playing the game and forming alliances that stood up against the s*** that was thrown at them, yeah its hard for new corps to get out into 0.0 but as we have seen in the past nothing lasts forever and failscades do happen, man up wait for your chance and then take it, if u get slammed out of ur nice new space by a massiv fleet from another alliance then guess what, you werent as prepared as them and therefore aint ready to hold the space. As for players from empire trying to impose their views on 0.0 (and vice versa) stick to what you know ffs peeps, i mean really, would you call the sky guy to come fix your prized sports car, or get the guy from the garage to come and deliver your first child, get real +1 for mittens :P

I would suggest you not shut down this topic, because its a serious issue for some of us.

For myself I could care less about open source or not, and honestly I do think you should have been able to monetize it. But that's not the issue. What I care about is that you took on a very large project, went quite a long way with it, then dropped it. I appreciate that the cost became prohibitive, that killed EvE Metric as well, but something about this bothers me with regards to the CSM. This is a major commitment, and depending on your real life, this is a monetary commitment (I definitely couldn't afford to be in the CSM.)

Understand that I'm not trying to come down on you. You made an amazing product and are obviously a bright fellow that clearly has a good understanding of the game. But there is something about the dropping of Capsuleer that bothers me with regards to this.

Ironically if your platform included pushing for CCP to have a way to integrate/license the high end 3rd party projects I would vote for you without a second thought

Thing is with nullsec voting blocs we'll already be getting a bunch of 0.0 candidates elected. Why should all CSM representatives have to be nullsec experts? Surely it's better to have some mixed in from other backgrounds.
As you say, those who spend all their time in sov space shouldn't impose their views on empire, lowsec, FW etc.

Actually, my goal isn't to make Eve easy; it's to make Eve balanced. I agree Eve should be a very challenging game, and I also admit I'm not the most experienced when it comes to how to resolve jump bridge issues. I think players need to remember that CCP aren't looking for game developers, they're looking for a voice to the players.

Even if I had the most brilliant solve for every issue, that doesn't mean CCP will go and do it, just because I say so as part of the CSM.

When I say I will not allow Capsuleer to be part of my campaign, I am referring to the application itself. My experience and knowledge of all that transpired from the beginning to the end of its life cycle will serve invaluable on the CSM, and third party apps and the EVE API are incredibly important to me.

Just want people to stop thinking my campaign is a hidden agenda to somehow resurrect Capsuleer and profit from it. That is why I emphasize I will not discuss it.

I do not support the removal of T2 BPOs. I support a change that will bring balance to them. In fact, I discussed the high run BPC change with several industry only players that I have great respect for, and while they didn't like the idea of change, they liked that idea a lot better than simply removing them from game.

I'm sorry if you feel that they are not in need of change. I believe otherwise. Again, remember CCP may agree with you and never make it a priority change.

If it has cost me your vote, then I hope you vote for a candidate that will better represent your needs.

I think the most important issue determining whether you will be elected this campaign is: "How many technetium moons do you own?"

If that is your sole determining factor, then you will not be voting for me. Hope you find a candidate that best meets your requirements.

You could set up some alchemy POS to create Tech Roc, that might win you some votes. Ed: except you can't make R32s through alchemy. Oh well, no NC votes for you.
