Friendly Greetings Capsuleers!

I will not bore you with long speeches, ill just tell what I can do and will do. Time for action and some serious work!

* 14 years experience with modding from lots of PC games (games like C&C series, GTA series, Fallout 3 and New Vegas and lots more)

* Second Life volunteer for 4 years (technical, translations, (visual) disability aid and more)

* I have Asperger Syndrome and with that a high IQ, I think up solutions and ideas in no time. Also this gives me the whole day for this specific job, I don't have a job at this moment that may mess with CSM 6.

* Adding a few new ships and fitting as small update (think about new Tech 2 items/ships and Tech 3!)

* Working on several world types, like walking around on a station and a planet, and a corporation office (when office is rented) as start.

* Getting the EVE time cards back in stores. currently a lot of stores do not have this, some members have only PLEX left due to financial problems and so not able to pay for online time cards. This makes it on long term more expansive for all of us, there for this idea.

* Adding a in-world office hour where capsuleers can talk to some of the CCP and CSM people. For ideas, problems, suggestions and when possible to talk about released information from things to come (something like a Q&A hour, but better)

* Finding a way to keep pirates out of 1.0 and 0.9 space, this due to new players being targeted for no good reason and there for leaving the game thanks to the pirate actions. There needs to be something to improve this.

* Adding in-world stores (you need to walk/run to them in a station or on a planet). Stores that offer clothing, jewelery, etc. All to buy with isk

* I have a lot more ideas that may be great to have.

I dare to speak out against pirates (griefer kind) and I dare to stand my ground. Difference between a pirate and a griefer is the obvious rule that a pirate will use his/her head instead of a happy trigger finger. My ideas are not against the pirates that do know how to play a game in a honest way, it's against the few that think they need to mess up the game and not think about what will happen if they succeed.

I do not sign up for things like this for the free things, actually I really couldn't care less about it. I have the skills and I like to share those with the world improving it for any and all. Lying I can hardly do due to my autism and really, isn't there anyone that wants these points realized? I mean come on, show some back bone! Show some guts you can at least think for yourself instead of running after the pirate griefers because you are afraid of them.Rolling Eyes

A good CSM member is not about 1 group, but all.
A good CSM member is not thinking about what he/she gets, but what they can do for everyone.
A good CSM member is willing to talk about more then the guidelines CCP sets. A CSM member needs to speak out instead of sit and shut up.

None of the other candidates seem to have this besides me, and just because I am against the griefers I am ignored? Shame on you allRazzRolling Eyes Think about what YOU need, not what they need!WinkLaughing

I've got Asperger Syndrome, I'm 19 years old, and I'm an Internet veteran.



Originally by: Zeph Mercurial

Here's your scenario.

I'm 19 years old and graduated from high school in 2006.

I'm heading down a great academic path, on my way to college.

Still living with my parents, but I plan on moving out when I'm socially and financially independent.

I sound pretty normal right?

There's only one problem here.

I've got Asperger Syndrome. I'll make an Ask Me thread about it later.

One of the problems I've got to deal with with this disorder is the fact that I'm an involuntary social hermit crab.

I tend to be brutally honest, stubborn as a mule, rigid in my thinking, horribly impatient and a total ***** in general.

Trust me, I do try to talk to people, but most of what I say comes out wrong and people get their panties in a bunch over something I didn't mean any offense about. Either people are too ****ing sensitive nowadays, or I'm being a ***** and I don't even know it.

I'm going insane from not being able to talk to people where they can understand what I'm saying.

My question to you, A+T goons:

How the hell can I socially interact without ****ing people off, looking like a jackass, etc. ?



Originally by: Zeph Mercurial

I was diagnosed at age 13 at the local TEACCH center, and again when applying for Social Security aid.

My parents believed I had autism back when I was eight. They took me to the TEACCH center, but the diagnosis was inconclusive. After a few years of misdiagnoses and going through hell with the ass-backwards school system here, ending up in classed with kids that got arrested at age 12 and the like, me being suicidal at age 13, etc. we got tipped off about Asperger Syndrome by my school counselor who I talked to every week. After some more wrangling with the school system we finally got a positive diagnosis.

In short, I did not diagnose myself.



Originally by: Zeph Mercurial

I have this problem significantly less on the Internet for exactly that reason. I don't see the face or hear the voice of the person who I'm talking to. I only see their text.

That seems to help a lot for some reason since I can't form any biases about them based on appearances, or if they have a strange accent/appearance, etc.

Also, I live in the middle of nowhere with one car my parents alternate between for work. Even if I did have a driver's license I wouldn't have use of the car for enough time to actually get out and do something.

I'd be willing to drink and party, except...there's nobody around to party with. And if I get drunk, I'm worried I'd get taken advantage of. And if I end up pregnant from getting ****d while drunk and comatose, there's a 98% chance I would be suicidal if I couldn't immediately get an abortion.

I'm also under 21 so I don't want to risk getting caught drunk in public.

thanks for the comments people. and yes, i might be a weirdo, but it's part of the charme of getting things done I guess. I sure hope to get the win, I am full with ideas I love to see added, and I am sure a lot of you will love to see someone in office that actually DOES do something for ALL the community and not just for selfish reasons, may it be for corp, alliance or a single pilot. CSM is a team that mediates between the players and CCP, and thus no place for solo play or own corp and/or alliance.

Question: How will someone with admitted (self-diagnosed?) Asperger's syndrome--which makes social interaction extremely difficult--succeed in both working closely with the other council members and CCP? You know you're going to be in the same room and having (potentially) high-level talks (or banal talks, for that matter)...are you sure you can keep things productive?

Also: your list of promises makes it look like you're trying to run for Junior Dev, which is not what the CSM does, really.

For those of you who are unaware of Asperger's mechanics, it is a high-functioning form of autism (ie, autism unaccompanied by mental ******ation). Individuals with Asperger's fall within the normal human ranges for intelligence. While it is certainly possible for an invidual with Asperger's to have genius-level intellect, it is no more or less likely than it is in the general populace. Therefore, it is highly inappropriate for Kumi to attempt to link the two together in the manner quoted above. Also, since it is fair to assume that an individual with Asperger's who also happened to possess a genius-level intellect would know that the quoted statement is demonstrably false, I can only conclude that Kumi is not a genius, is not afflicted with Asperger's, or that both conditions are true.

not sure where you read that I claim to be a genius, but even your explanation about autism is so far wrong by all that tried to explain it. I guess none even tried to find out about it on GoogleWinkRolling Eyes Anyways, the specialists that diagnosed me with Aspergers also did a IQ test, they only could set a minimum due to things i prefer not to tell, private.Rolling Eyes My minimum 9according to these specialists is 145, they suspect a lot higher.

Aspy's can not communicate as others can, hard time trying to explain things. As clearly is shown in this topic alone. But so far I see, I do a better job then any goon trying to bully me and so many others... Rolling Eyes

Anyways, back to what is the topic about. no need to pay attention to people who grief othersRolling Eyes

I specifically quoted where you said, "I have Asperger Syndrome and with that a high IQ". You didn't not say "I have Asperger's and, coincidentally, a high IQ." You specifically linked them. Also, bravo on the false modesty wherein you ostensibly claim not to have referred to yourself as a genius and then promptly claim that you have an IQ that would put you in the top 2% of the population. It is only fair to note that the definition of 'genius' is open to wide interpretation and that my usage of the term here is somewhat imprecise.

As for the rest of my statement, I should clarify that the common misconception that Asperger's sufferers possess higher than average intelligence (usually held among those who claim to have Asperger's) came from the theories of Dr. Hans Asperger. However, not Dr. Asperger failed to provide any IQ scores to support his claim. Some psycholgists maintain that individuals with Asperger's are of average or higher-than average intelligence. However, this is usually a false assumption, since individuals with an IQ 70 (low-functioning autistics) are typically excluded from the statistics, as individuals with IQs below that level are excluded from the diagnosis. If one includes individuals of all intelligence levels who exhibit the symptoms of Asperger's in their statistical analysis, the curve has a strong correlation to the average population.

I do not say this to smear you or to make you look bad; although I will admit a certain bias against individuals who proclaim that they have a condition that excessively complicates social interaction while engaging in social dialogue. Asperger's is estimated to afflict 0.2%-0.6% of the population and every person who falsely claims to suffer from it to excuse their own social awkwardness (a not-uncommon quality among online gamers) detracts from the seriousness of the condition.

Anyway, I guess my point is that I don't think that you have Asperger's and I also don't think you're as intelligent as you claim. I will admit that I have a limited data set to support this belief, but I have seen encountered enough people who made similar claims to have a fair basis for comparison.

Well, the candidate shouldn't have listed being a self-diagnosed aspie as a qualification then.

I mean, "I'm morbidly obese so I like to sit around a lot and think about internet spaceships" would be silly to list as a reason to vote for the person, no?

Mittens

It's pretty ****ty of you to try to make any medical conditions of the CSM candidates an issue here. By all means attack them on policy, but it's pretty ****ing pathetic to be so blatantly offensive.

You already have the vote sewn up. At least have the maturity and decency to give others a voice without belittling and mocking.

I don't think you really know what it is to troll, though I suppose it's possible that you could be trolled by reasonable arguments stated in a neutral tone. I do, however, have a question - and feel free to 'report' me for asking it:

Why did you even mention Asperger's in your CSM platform? What possible benefit did you hope to gain from mentioning it? I would understand if you had said something along the lines of, "I have Asperger's and doing this is one way for me to push myself outside my normal social routines and grow as a person." I would have even respected your willingness to overcome adversity. But you didn't do that. You intentionally linked it to a claim of intelligence. In short, you worked to make it a selling point for your candidacy. I will grant that it shouldn't be a hindrance to a candidate's chances (aside from the inherent difficulties associated with the condition), but I can't imagine how it would be a benefit. So please, explain your reasoning.

Perhaps because he was providing the electorate with relevant and useful information that will help them to make a decision, and which puts his platform in a context.

Utterly pathetic that Mittani and the other Goons have decided to make this such an issue. How edgy and cool you all are! **** like this probably goes down ok with your own kind on your own forums, but why do you think it's relevant in an election campaign?

I don't think that it's relevant that a person with Asperger's is running for CSM (assuming that Kumi actually has Asperger's, which I must admit that I doubt). That he felt compelled to feature it prominently in his campaign thread, however, is very relevant.

To say it another way, if he had said, "Plus I have cancer, so you know that I'm (insert some beneficial quality unrelated to a diagnosis of cancer)," it would have be equally absurd. This is not about attacking someone with a disease. This is about questioning the judgement of someone who is, at best, trying to use their condition to get votes in a space election point and at worst, lying about having a condition to get votes.
