I am conducting an experiment to find the generosity of EVE players as a whole.
Please send Bill Serkoff2 whatever amount of money you would feel good giving to an average player. The amount you send will be recorded and the total average will be found, and my results will be graphed and shown accurately. Hopefully I can see how generous or stingy the EVE community is.

I can see you put very much thought into this, especially since there's already an actual ongoing donation drive which will show the generosity of EVE players.

Begging for ISK is against the forum rules.

Enjoy your ban

I know bill, and his efforts are noble. I have already given him 20 million isk, and I know bill actually quite well. He is sincere.

I'm performing an experiment into the generosity of the forum moderators - Bill has come here begging for a ban. Please, he wants it so much - don't hold back, he's trying so hard it wouldn't be fair to disappoint him.

I disagree with your general opinion but I'm honored that you didn't refer to me as 'OP'.

Any time Bill.

Also, I have 35 billion isk that I decided not to send you. Please put that down in your experiment as -35 billion. Then divide it by x number of EVE players - this will give you a coefficient of absolutely no meaning or value at all.

And a ban. Did I mention the ban?

Right. Exactly how much is a ban worth?

It has a subjective utility value based on the preference of the person seeking one. I'm guessing that in your case it has a very high value as you are seeking one so eagerly Very Happy

Fair enough. Your -35,000,000,000.00 donation will be recorded, thank you!

I am choosing to donate 0.0000 ISK.
Sadly, the system will not allow me to donate such a generous amount (compared to the above poster).

Sadly you will need Russian client in order to donate negative amounts.

Dear Bill,

Thank you for inquiring as to the level of charitable donations made by SHSG and our affiliates. Though we would truly enjoy making a donation to your scheme, we however must decline. At this time we are very busy holding our breath for that nice shade of blue, and hunting down a leprechaun to get his pot o' gold.

Best of luck with your project.

I'd gladly give you ISK, but I spent it all on ammunition. Meh, what the hell, I'll just give you some of my stock.... CATCH!

Oh, and enjoy the Mod-Hammer. Laughing

you're almost there.

(1) create anonymous alt account
(2) buy ISK from RMT site
(3) send ISK to Bill
(4) conduct a socio-economic experiment on CCP's response to RMT petitions.

This is so EPIC that I just had to show my generosity as well. Right now my efforts went towards Japan, and didn't leave any room for you.
