Having looked through the various threads of the CSM candidates i noticed a lot of similarity between their positions but none yet which seems to match my own views.
So i'll go ahead and ask - are there any candidates that:

- don't think the game was better back in 2003 and don't think we should stop adding things until lag is fixed and every ship is balanced and hell freezes over or whatever
- are not so much interested in small tweaks and thousands or papercuts but the bigger picture ?
Worst thing that can happen to this game in my opinion is design by committee and creativity being snuffled out by a mountain of requests. I want the CSM to function as a conduit for our major concerns and our problems and especially demands for information on our behalf Exclamation not deliver blueprint copies to the CCP assembly lines for production.
- are excited about Incarna and have ideas on how it should evolve so that it can be awesome (and relevant rather then just fluff) ? Will keep us informed about it and pressure CCP on releasing information unlike the current CSM ? Evil or Very Mad
- want to keep a brisk expansion schedule of at least ONE major expansion per year if two is untenable (i can accept that)
- think many of the expansions were pretty fun actually after the week or so of troubleshooting it took them to stop deleting boot.ini Very Happy
- want the weaker parts of the EvE experience revisited (Faction Warfare guys please) but not timidly, boldly. The problem with those was always lack of sufficient features and being way too scared to rock the boat. Not allowing FW or PI for example to matter enough.

So in short who wants the total sci-fi experience ?

I agree. I just burned the last 90min reading various candidate threads and going to websites. A lot of talk about "change & fix" but no real statements about the future.

Incarna 'end-state'?
Dust514 Integration?
Future exapansion ideas?
&etc.

The reason I am concerned with these is because the CCP decision-makers have made it clear that the future is where their concern lies. If they expect the CSM visit to be nothing but *****-session for player representatives, I expect they will attend begrudgingly and spend the time thinking about which kind of puffin they are going to have for lunch.

You'll end up just talking to a bunch of people like Seleene (used to be) who have no authority and are too afraid to voice their opinions. They'll go back to their cell, drop their notes in the bottom file drawer, and do whatever their boss tells them to do.

Are there any candidates optimistic about the future of Eve, with ideas for how it will become the complete "sci-fi experience?"

Or is the job of the CSM simply to be the whiney, *****y bf/gf?

Im looking forward to incarna, in fact i already read their first ideas on incarna, we need to get our current problems fixed for sure because every time one thing is fixed another thing gets broken to easily. FW does need to be balanced because no ones want to do it for the biggest reason people are afraid of getting they empire area cut in half because of gaining standing, its one reason i joined a corp for lvl 5 missions with a whole idea of having a pvp fleet standing by and the missioners doing the missions but the whole corp backed out because they were a gallente mission corp with their low sec and 0.0 space past amarr empire space. btw i am running for this csm and have an open door policy

Hi Chin, CSM Candidate White Tree checkin' in (www.whitetreedesign.net)

- don't think the game was better back in 2003 and don't think we should stop adding things until lag is fixed and every ship is balanced and hell freezes over or whatever?

I also don't think EVE was better back in 2003. For the most part CCP's changes to the game have been positive. The company grows and learns about itself and its players and it even begins to understand its own product better. Advancing the development of content but also improving the content of the game is what the CSM helps CCP to do. And what I'll endeavour to do if I get elected.

- are not so much interested in small tweaks and thousands or papercuts but the bigger picture?

EVE is a game where small changes have BIG consequences! Each CSM candidate tends to pick a handful of areas that they feel directly affect them, their alliance, or their player-type. I personally have tried to look both to the future, and to the present with the changes that I'm addressing.

Worst thing that can happen to this game in my opinion is design by committee and creativity being snuffled out by a mountain of requests. I want the CSM to function as a conduit for our major concerns and our problems and especially demands for information on our behalf Exclamation not deliver blueprint copies to the CCP assembly lines for production.

Luckily for us, we have an entire team of creative and thoughtful people working on our behalf at CCP! But the CSM works to steer CCP in the sort of direction that the players want to go in as well. The CSM wrestles with CCP, but also helps CCP to explore aspects of their own development that they haven't even thought about yet. I'll try to spend as much time as possible listening to the concerns of the players and bringing them to CCP should I get elected.

- are excited about Incarna and have ideas on how it should evolve so that it can be awesome (and relevant rather then just fluff) ? Will keep us informed about it and pressure CCP on releasing information unlike the current CSM ? Evil or Very Mad

Unfortunately the CSM does have to sign an NDA, so they can't tell us everything unfortunately! But the CSM should act as a conduit of excitement for the playerbase. The CSM can't really tell you whats going on if they're not told too, but they can help you stay informed and if your concerns are similar to the CSMs, then if they're excited, you should be too! And YOUR concerns are MY concerns, so I'll work as hard as I can to make sure your fears are laid to rest.

- want to keep a brisk expansion schedule of at least ONE major expansion per year if two is untenable (i can accept that)

I don't think anyone on the CSM could argue with the idea that CCP continues to provide stunning new content to its players and that CCP continues to develop one of the greatest games ever made, I know I don't! So like all CSM candidates before me, and hopefully ahead of me - I'll work tirelessly to keep that fire lit in the cold northern rim of Iceland.

- want the weaker parts of the EvE experience revisited (Faction Warfare guys please) but not timidly, boldly. The problem with those was always lack of sufficient features and being way too scared to rock the boat. Not allowing FW or PI for example to matter enough.

I agree. Lowsec desperately needs to be worked on, and faction warfare is somewhat dated. The CSM and CCP should always work together to make sure the content stays fresh and no feature gets left behind. In fact I'm fairly sure CCP is working to revisit the DED complex system as we speak, but I know I'd work hard to try and make sure that they didn't let anything or anyone slip through the cracks!

So in short who wants the total sci-fi experience ?

I do. I LOVE EVE's backstory as well as its features.

I am deeply sorry for posting my own campaign thread a bit late, so you couldn't have seen it before creating this topic. Wink

I could do multiple quotes of your post and reply to every single one, but in short, I'd say that I, I want the total sci-fi experience.
I want to continue dreaming of EVE at night (because I do that already), and I want EVE to be made of the same fabric than those dreams. Something that will stun us in awe.
