Hmm, you did quite good for me in the Vote match thing, better than the other guy I might vote for. And the other guy is kinda quiet on his "important to him" roleplay subject.
If you get elected, I will fill you in on my gripes in relation to RP.


I wonder if I'm not shooting my own foot in there, but VoteMatch! isn't extremely reliable imho. I had to answer those questions and create a profile because not doing so would only means less visibility as a candidate, but I share the largely-expressed opinion that questions are poorly worded, which resulted in a rather large bias.

This led me to further explain almost every answer. I strongly recommend all players using VoteMatch! to take the time to read their candidates' comments on those questions.

One thing is sure thus, if RP is your main concern for CSM, or at least something you want the CSM to consider, I further invite you to offer me your vote. I'm positive I am the candidate taking this aspect of the game the most seriously. The representation of roleplayers at the CSM will be limited, at best, if I'm not elected.

I was just directed towards Myrhial Arkenath's blog, a fellow roleplayer who offered me one of the two votes she had, and explains why.

Thank you for your vote, Myrhial, and the very good analysis of my campaign and what I offer. I pretty much agree to what is said there, and her other vote goes to a candidate that I would have considered voting for too if I wasn't running myself...
But I won't tell you who, you've got to read that by yourself !

On a side note, it seems that I'm generally more convincing to the people I had a chance to speak with in real-time, and can debate quite well - which seems to be a good thing for a potential CSM representative. Although a lot of the votes have been casted already, if you are curious about my campaign, I'm still available for a chat now and then. No matter if you're just one guy who want to make sure of something, or a big alliance diplomat who would like to organize an audio interview on his own Vent/Mumble server. So far I had much pleasure answering to those interviews.

So, feel free to drop a question here, or send me an EVEmail to see how we can talk about things !

Well, I did read your comments on votematch, and even the issues we didn't agree on/I had no opinion about made me feel better about you than the actual percentage that was given.

I wonder, were you one of the people on the New Eden Radio interview? If so, do you remember how far into the interview you came up?

Sadly, no. I was contacted by DJ DrizzCat about the interview by NER, but there was a limited number of seats available (sounds quite logical, if you want to give every guest enough time) and by the time I knew if I'd be available at that hour, my answer came in too late.

I'd be happy to participate to another one thus, by NER or any other media. Either through text, or audio, keeping in mind that my poor mic gives crappy results with anything else than Mumble, apparently.

I'm voting for you because of your focus on the story of eve. I run a lot of missions. I think that ccp should use the incarna character models to enhance the missions with some cool cut-scenes similar to what you see in Mass Effect 2 and Dragon Age 2. How much more fun would it be to rescue the damsel if when you drop her off at the station you get see her run weeping into the arms of your agent? Or in Vengeance, wouldn't it be cool if while warping to the final room to confront Rachen Mysuna you could watch her striding to the command deck of her pirate battleship and give the order to power up the weapons systems.

The story of eve is not just the social interactions, we should have compelling single player stories too!

Bonjour a toi,

Peut tu expliquer un minimum en français ?
Du moin, pour ce qui de ta candidature.
Car si tu est Français, ça serait bien de mettre en avant, bien que je comprand qu'il est est plus d'anglais sur E.V.E.
J'espere aux moin que tu porterait la voix Française aux mieux !

Merci d'avance.

So, I just received an interesting question by EVEmail. I'll post and answer it here so everyone can react if they want to.

Originally by: "Prince Vaelen"
snip)
If you wouldn't mind at some point I'd like to just ask about what you'll be doing if the votes go in your favour and maybe just a summary list of major issues you're hoping to clear up first.
(snip)


First of all, thank you for your vote :)

I definitely have hope to grab a seat at the CSM. While being one of the underdogs of this election, I believe from the various reactions I get, both here, ingame, and on other forums, that I could very well end up with enough votes to become either a CSM representative or alternate.

Hell, at some point, I even had plans about what I'd do if I got chair. They are still valid, but I guess we can safely agree that this is a most unlikely event, and the top 3 or 4 seats are pretty much secured already.

About my plans if I get elected, well, first, it's to do my job as a CSM member. Based on the various protocols that already exist, what CCP wants us to do first, and the experience of previous CSMs, I'll get a reasonably packed schedule, just like any other CSM member.
This implies attending meetings, participating in the writing of reports, hanging out in some channels and forums to be sure to hear the voices of players...
CCP will provide us with a list of elements they would like our feedback on, and I will also debate with other members what are the points we could bring to them.

All these are the basic duties of any CSM member, and I'm sure all the serious candidates are already planning to do just the same.

At this point, I'd like to stress something. If I'm not elected as a CSM Representative but got enough votes to become an Alternate, I will do just the same. Attend all meetings I'm invited to, participate, listen to the players and offer them feedback. Being an alternate will mean that I won't have a say in a lot of things, but I won't let the people who voted for me down. As an Alternate, I'd still plan to help the CSM, through informal means if needed, and I will certainly not step down from such a position. Additionally, we often saw CSM Representatives resign to express a disagreement, or because they realized that the CSM was not what they expected it to be. In the case I was deemed (as an Alternate) a suitable replacement, I'd happily accept this promotion.

While we speak about player feedback, and communication : if elected, I also intend to represent the CSM at various events. I have already worked with CCP to showcase EVE in festivals or conventions in the past, and I will continue to do that. If I'm elected a CSM member, I will continue to go there to convince potential new players that EVE is damn cool, but also plan some time to speak and debate with the EVE players showing up.

Finally, on the matter of the issues I will raise : one has to understand the way the CSM works, and how it cannot be used as a lobbyist group meant to pressure changes on CCP. That will just not work. However, we can produce reports and material, and submit them to CCP, with no guarantee at all about the amount of attention that will be brought to it. I can see from the platforms of other candidates that many of the important subjects are covered already. I will, of course, offer my participation and carry the players' voices about all these important matters.
Additionally, some more specific changes, perhaps critical to a much smaller audience issues have so far not been raised. I also have plans, ideas which are a bit long for that post / forum, that I intend to push forward because no other CSM candidate will do it.
Most of those are concerning roleplay, and issues where realism and atmosphere are way off, such as bloodlines, pirate faction standings... I do not center my campaign on those, thus. I'd, ultimately, be elected to serve the players.

Attention spans are short, you must learn to make your point with less words.

In CSM 5, the only real difference between a main and alternate delegate was that only main delegates can raise a proposal at a CSM meeting.

With regard to meetings (whether online or in Iceland), the rule was simple: the top 9 available people did the job.

Alternates were encouraged to participate in the internal discussions on an equal basis, though I think it took a while before they realized this. Mynxee was a strong proponent of this, as was I.

It just makes good sense: 15 heads are better than 9, and if an alternate has to step in and get on the plane to Iceland, it is better that they be fully up to speed.

Hopefully CSM6 will continue this policy, and make it even more clear to the alternates that they are not only encouraged to participate, they are expected to participate.

With all these trolls out there, I like to be sure I convey my ideas without misunderstanding. It's sad that it makes me a bit verbose indeed.
But who cares ? If someone has a very short attention span, he will never get to this thread anyway, the EVE forums being what they are. They will cast their CSM vote basing upon the messages displayed on the vote page.

Thank you for the information, I did not know some of these things.

In short, whatever my role is in the next CSM, I'll do what I can for that policy to be continued. So, expect to hear my annoying accent in some audio meetings, even if I'm not a full-time member. Twisted Evil

So, it looks like we're in the last days of this voting period.

Some of you are waiting for the last moment, the last bit of information before adding their votes, and take a lot of time considering their options before voting. If you have not voted yet, it can be due to several reasons :
  • because of all the uncertainty you can feel about several candidates platforms

  • because you couldn't find someone who would care about your issues

  • because you are a roleplayer and felt like you were going to be neglected at the CSM

  • and many more...


If you are one of them, if you have not voted yet, please, re-read this thread, including my campaign message at the start.

Together, we can do it.
A vote for me is a vote for you.

Well, thanks to all those who gave me their votes. Now we just have to wait I believe. I don't think the results will be announced during fanfest, CCP stated that they'd reveal the results the 30th. But who knows.

Until then, don't hold your breath ! (it's a long time !)
