I have received a few messages from other capsuleers saying that I needed to get a web page up and a campaign going. They had read my campaign message and like what they saw because I was like them.

So here it goes...

I am not a politician, I am a person like you or anyone else in New Eden. I have a life out side of Eve and as much as I would like to spend all day exploring wormholes and working the 3 M's (mining, missions and manufacturing) I have to tend to my real life. I think there are a lot of people like you and me in New Eden. The people that come here to escape the demands of life to become that explorer and adventurer that the our normal lives don't allow us to be. We look forward to that hour a night after the kids have gone to bed and our spouse or significant other is watching TV or reading a book, that time when we can become the captains of our own Battleships and fight Pirates and other scourges of the universe.

I love my time on Eve and I am grateful that CCP brought together the talent to create a universe where I can escape the monotony of paying bills and filling out TPS reports and watching my cubical mates steal my red stapler.

But I think CCP has forgotten that as much as we want to live in New Eden, some of us have to spend more time on Earth. I appreciate some of the new ships and missions and many of the new features that have been introduced since I started playing just before Exodus was released. But in all the upgrades and forums, ships and features can be a bit overwhelming when you can't get on every day and keep up with all of the new things. i can image it is a bit much for the newbs as well.

I am not against progress and upgrade, I love it, But I think Eve has gotten to the point that a capsuleer can't survive in New Eden unless they are in a Corp and they can't experience all that Eve has to offer if their Corp is in an Alliance. I'm not saying that Corps and Alliances need to be done away with. I just think CCP needs to do more to maintain the ability for people to be independent spirits. The introverted rogues of space that wander and do their own things, The Han Solos of the Old republic if you will.

I also feel that CCP needs to re-evaluate its role as God over New Eden. God created the universe and man created his own troubles. I don't think CCP needs to regulate and define every little rule and nuance of what happens in the Universe. Let man be man. Let us learn that if you are going to go into 0.0 Space in a Probe, you are going to get ganked. I went into a WH a couple days ago and was having a great ole time cleaning up a pack of Sleepers. I got caught unaware and got podded. Was I ****ed, a little, but i laughed at myself for being so dumb and not clearing out when i new there was trouble when the first player ship appeared. Thank God for clones and Insurance.

Geico of New Eden can save you 15% on Battlecruiser insurance.

When I started in Eve there were Pirates everywhere and Gatecamps were a way of life, Now they seem to have died off. I have read various theories as top why this is, Allied groups cleaning them out, loss of interest, but the one that i don't like is the claim that CCP punished them. CONCORD is there to police the stars, let CONCORD do what it was created to do. CCP can control the Universe, let man control man. I am not a Pirate, nor will i ever be one, But i think the loss of the Pirate Corps has taken a bit of the adventure away from Eve that I found appealing.

I know my message is a bit mixed, but that is what i think. You can agree with me or not. But I want to know what you think. I know I am under informed, so inform me.

What do you want to see in New Eden, What Don't you want to see in New Eden. There is a lot of talk about Station missions and walking around, i see the advantages ad disadvantages of this. What do you think? What do you want?

If I can Serve on the CSM I want to represent you, Not me.

Test Alliance Please Ignore

It's CSM 6 bromaha, bit late if you want to be on CSM5

How can I trust you to change the game if you can't even read?

In all seriousness, interesting platform but I don't think you understand the CSM as an entity ; it is not an engine of change, it is a sounding board for people to say 'No that's ******ed' whenever CCP pulls a CCP and suggest how they might change it. Besides, you don't seem to know what you're fighting for before going into the election which worries me alot. Also you seem like a hisec carebear so vOv

Good luck in the election

I can read, I just can't type. I'm glad you pointed that out so I could change it and keep from looking like too big of an idiot. (too late, I know)

I understand that the CSM is more of a sounding board than a tool of retro change. I guess the point that i wanted to make is that there have been some change that have occurred in the past that I would have liked to have seen go a different way. However there are some things that are still in place that I would like to see developed or others just left alone.

I am not against bettering the system, bit not at the risk of losing the things that players enjoy and look forward to.

I will admit I don't know all of the little issues, But like i said, I have a life that requires my time outside of EVE. I have been reading the CSM reports from the past and am about half way through. But that just leads to the point that I made before. There area lot of us in EVE that don't have the hours on end to keep up with everything thing. I read the expansion notes and the dev blogs every day at lunch, and in the evening I run missions. There is a lot to learn, and I am willing to take the time to learn it in order to serve on the CSM. I feel there is a demographic here that has been forgotten and that needs a voice, I want to be that voice.

I appreciate your comments, and i want to hear more. Am i so far off in my opinion?

And i am not a carebear, but at the same time I don't see killing newbs at first sight a sport or an accomplishment. An Apocalypse against a reaper is not a challenge. Its like hitting a Kid on a tricycle with a Landrover. (I wasn't in the Reaper or the Apoc, but I saw it happen ugh)
