Hello everyone!

You are probably reading this because you enjoy playing this awesome game.

If you are playing for a while, you most likely have used tools like evemon, eft, killboards, forums integrated with eve, production or invention calculators, jump range planners and maybe a variety of other 3rd party tools.

I'd assume that alot of people will agree that eve without those tools would be a different game, and that those tools add alot to your fun.

Now while CCP has been giving a bit of support to us (the third party developers), i still feel that we need a more direct line to CCP, and to the people at CCP who can actually make decisions - so they can be convinced to work clother with people like us, so our (free) work improves your game even more.

So, if you use some of those tools regulary, please give it a thought and vote for Peter Powers!

Learn more about me on my campaign website,

EVSCO supports Peter Powers fully.

Hes an invaluable person both as a friend, but also as a developer on both private and EVSCO related projects.
So if you value your 3rd party tools like EVE-KILL, vote Peter in to the CSM - and he will fight tooth and nail to get even more goodies to the 3rd party developers - and ultimately you, the pilots of EVE!

Peter is a committed guy, he has worked on lots of sexy tools and stuff for Finfleet.

I'm sure if he puts as much effort into being a CSM rep as he does to improving the game for his mates, then he will be a worthy addition to the team.

My only regret? There is only one Peter Powers in Finfleet.

He has my personal unreserved seal of approval.

I have known Peter in game almost since he started and I have to say that he does what he says he will do.

I know that he will do his utmost to put his points across and get things done.

Hi,

I like 3rd party apps, but I don't understand you seem to be saying "if you like 3rd party apps, vote for me" I'd like you to go into more details on how you can improve the 3rd party app universe by being on the CSM?

What plans and.or suggestions will you be putting forward?

Supercapitals Supercapitals are out of balance at the moment, be it by comparing the supercapitals to eachother and seing that there is little reason in flying a shield-(super-)capital, or be it looking at how supercapitals are currently replacing dreads more and more. 'I think one of the most important things to do is to open CCP's eyes that there are actual problems and to get a dialog on this running


I like hearing opinion from people who dont know how to fit supercapitals and use White Noise **** fits instead. Top notch.
Please list your supercapital character(s). Thanks

Pssst: "closer" :-)

3rd party developpers usually already benefit from a more direct line to developers through the forum, the number of posts by devs answering technical questions is higher than in other subforums...

Not saying yours isn't a valid position, the CSM has already made efforts to increase the information available, improve the API, some of those efforts as recent as the last December summit (check the minutes).

I have a question for you: Considering that the vast majority of the time spent on the CSM is spent talking about things other than one's pet issue, what is your background when it comes to things other than 3rd party applications.

Good luck with your campaign

actually its more through the chat than through the forums,
but talking to the developers does not put one in a position to talk to the guys
who decide about the time the developers get to spend on certain things.

Peter has my vote for sure!

I work with him here n there when doing things for (EVSCO/eve-kill.net). He's a quality guy & is really good with the things he does. Not gonna go into detail but had the pleasure of talking to him 1 on 1 about my life as we know everyone has a crappy life so to speak. He's helped me out a grate deal & I'm glad to of met him. If it wasn't for EVE I most likely never would of met him either so for him to wanna help the community in anyway he can then thats awesome!.

Peter 4 CSM!

3rd party applications are an essential - with the smallest possible effort on the CCP side. I would really hope that having one CSM member dedicated to getting APIs fixed and enhanced, this would be an area where more good stuff would come from.

Because I have very limited hopes of the actual game getting better through CSM input, sadly.

You, sir, have my mining lazors.

The evsco guys where so kind to put up a notification for my campaign,
its not an ad perse, its the notification system they usually use for news and such.

With my campaign focusing on 3rd party development, and killboards being one of the most used
3rd party applications, they have the best interest of their customers at heart, when recommending
to vote for me.

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.

In my job i have successfully coordinated teams up to 14 people, including external developers. I'd love to give a few examples about how exactly i got us budgets, times, or solved other problems, however most of that stuff falls under NDA that i signed and respect.

I have been involved with several open source projects, in different roles, and when php4 came out, i tend to believe that quite a bit of what lead to the Zend Engine being under a proper opensource license was due to the community work / campaigning that i did back then. Zend, the company who build php's runtime called zend engine planned to release it under a kind of properitary license back then. Zend used to advertise with the slogan "zend - where php meets business". The discussion was pretty stuck in its trails, so i put up a banner on a webpage having a logo like theirs saying "ZiMT - where PHP meets needs". Alot of the larger PHP related sites back then adopted the banner, and the Zend guys suddenly felt the need to send someone to a usergroup meeting to talk to us about what we want.. well the rest is history, and nowadays php is one of the most successfull opensource projects arround.

In my free time i'm a member of a political party, and have been for several years (well, i recently switched parties, but thats a different story), that alone teaches one quite a bit about how to work with people, and how to push forward (new) ideas, even if there is resistance at first.
