How can it possibly be good for the game if one group of alliances controls ALL the major assets in game, will have ADVANCE NOTICE of game changes through the NDA (which they will use to consolidate their in-game monopoly), AND will be the primary mouthpiece for the players?


Indeed?

You did not seem to care much about when BOB had a majority influence on the dev team at all Windy. Your Ticket reads like an attempt to bring CAOD drama to the CSM, nothing more. Abusing NDA rights? How is that even gonna work, the CSM gets hint of an incoming drake nerf and decides to stock up on maelstroms? Come on.

This is awesome! I've got my own dedicated alt stalker (I have cried many a tear since Genera1 Windyp0ps was biomassed) AND some dude has made the campaign video that I was planning to make anyway.

Thanks forum!

Kisses,

Windy

I voted for you with my accounts because you're an idiot forum troll and the CSM needs people on it who don't take it seriously Laughing

Is it about this point in the campaign where I'm supposed to try some complicated Mittens / Trebor style post to convince you not to vote for me? I don't get how that works but all the cool kids are doing it, so block vote manipulation is clearly the way forward.

TBH the only voice of reason in this campaign. Roc would be a close second.

Windy, to secure my vote, please answer the following question:

Steak or Prawns ?

What is your experience in dealing with disparate groups of individuals and getting them to perform on given tasks? In addition, what is your experience in convincing those who have more control than you come to see things your way? Real world and virtual world, please.

I do not mean this as a joke or an attempt to discredit you. These are the key things I am looking for in a candidate for this position.

Oh god this is like a job interview. Wait. It is a job interview.

RL examples are kind of pointless, because it's the internet and I can make stuff up. For what it's worth, I'm a departmental manager for one of the UK's largest firms, and management responsibility for several teams and about 20 individuals. Managing the politics and personalities of the corporate world is, sadly, by bread and butter. In the virtual world, I think my greatest success in convincing people who don't agree with me to see things my was was my phenomenal campaign to get Sons of Tangra to reimburse Hurley's titan. It just hasn't happened yet. I was also the mastermind behind the 'Bee Gone' campaign to rid the game of Goonfleet. Judge the success of that for yourself.

I have made it extremely clear that this is the core issue for me. I put myself forward for this election primarily to raise awareness of the blatant attempt of the NC / Goons to gain in game advantage by monopolising the CSM and the access that their Non-Disclosure agreements will give them.[/b]


They're called "non-disclosure agreements" for a reason. Because, you know, disclosures are limited under the terms of the agreement. The idea that they'd expose themselves to lawsuits to gain a superficial advantage in internet spaceships is absurd.

You're right. I reckon 3 votes just about seals it.

That inability to see the big picture is why you, sir, are a civilian and I am a bonafide General.

The key point here is that it is the LEADERS of numerous allied alliances who are looking to stitch up the CSM. This means that they can discuss and make long term plans for the advancement of their powerbloc without even causing the NDA to break a sweat.

and indeed your own.

intorweb pixel faces aside, is it true Gerneal, sir, that half the other CSM candidates have approached you to 'buy' your manifesto and remove yourself from the race for the princely prize of a fully T1 fitted bait Maller ?

Good luck, I voted for you with all four of my accounts.

Yes, I am turkey voting for Christmas. The 0.0 factions wield a lot of power and historically they have been well represented in the CSM community. Secondly, Eve needs new subscribers, these subscribers will initially spend a lot of time in Empire so its important to have a CSM who is willing to look after Empire interests. Finally, I support the development of more open-interfaces within EVE. A player-based developer community would be a major asset to CCP and citizens of Eve and should be encouraged.

You got my vote ! As long as certain people use the CSM for their own agenda to protect their own interests,we all know it will never be given any real kinda power to make Eve better for all of us.The CSM has so much potential and it was our chance to pull together as a customer base and get the game working better so we can all have more fun,but sadly due to the selfish few I can't see it changing anytime soon.

Actually, the 0.0 alliances are pulling new subscriber's, not yet out of their baby slippers; to go off into 0.0, and take advantage of all that is available there. They've been actively recruiting like this for some time; with no more requirement, than 1 Million SP.

I know this, because I have been attempting to recruit for a month for an alt corp; and my recruiting campaign's worst competition, is Nullsec Corp's, that have access to the most valuable resources in the game. Rather difficult, to offer something; which can compare to that, overall.

They even put alt's into your corp, or recruiting chat; to snipe the guy's, who might be interested. A member of Goonswaffe told me that, I think; in a rather candid moment in recruiting. It really is quite disappointing; seeing a corp grow to 7 members, and drop to 3 in a couple weeks. Most of those lost were kicked; and the other was a Test Alliance spy, according to his old CEO. He dropped inside of 5 hours.

So... will they really be in highsec?

Further proof why we need people to stand up against those alliances. If they have their way this will be one hell of a dull game. Good to see someone like Windy actually trying to spice up empire again, and take on the big boys.

General Windypops got my vote Cool .. this guy had the most intelligent, thought-out responses to numerous hot issues on the "Vote Match Page". Some of the other candidates responses were .. well .. do they really play this game?
