Well I've been here for almost 5 of those 8 years and God help you and me both, I'll probably be for a few more.

Happy Birthday! I know you love new ships, but I'd also settle for more grid on my Nighthawk... Cool

Ed: And another launcher slot would be swell too.

I have been here for a little over 5 years, and I wouldn't be surprised if I'm still here in 5 years. Embarassed

FYP.

Congratz to EVE on her up and coming 8th birthday. I can already see that she has the makings of a fine young lady, but there is still loads of maturing ahead of her before we get to see her in her full potential. ugh

While I may have joined the party fashionably late. I'd like to extend a massive thank you to the EVE community for making EVE and CCP what we are today.

As a player, after 7 years and well over 6,000 hours of game play I can certainly say that there is nothing else quite like EVE. Its taken me to 5 FanFest's, and many player gatherings, where I've enjoyed drinking with both friends and enemies alike.

However a more important, and truly heart felt thank you goes out to our amazing community, for quite literally funding every beer I have had the pleasure to drink during my 2 years at CCP.

So lets raise a glass to 8 more years!

Just wondering whether as it says "paid" it's seems like plex'd wouldn't count or is that just poor interpretation because it seems odd to say it, obviously if it's an active account it's "paid"

Dear CCP and Eve Community,

Thank you for making and participating in what I feel is the best game availible to date.

CCP, I know you get a lot of flak and very little slack from us, however, it is just "tough love". We just want to see the game rise to its ultimate potential. Since that is limitless, we wil continue to challenge you to bring the best you have. Thank you for creating such a dynamic gaming environment.

Players, I love you, I hate you, I hate loving you and I love hating you. Keep bringing it.

Here's to another 8 years!!!!

Trial accounts are active and unpaid.

Plex-paid accounts are still paid for (by someone) and I'm 98.6% sure they count.

Also, Happy Birthday Eve!

I joined about a month too late for the Apotheosis Shuttle (EVE @ 5 years old).

I'm guessing it's the "Infinity Shuttle" because it will be shaped like the infinity symbol "∞" and when you rotate it 90 it looks like a number "8".

PLEX still counts because somebody somewhere down the line paid for it with their $35 on a GTC.

INB4 "its worthless"

Well unless the gift is spell points... even a little 50k, days worth or something...that part of the gift will be worthless to me as collectors items are actually a sort of irritant to me to consider selling or having them clutter up a container for years and have them waste 2 or three seconds of my game time repeatedly every time i open the container)

But,

The Thank you note isn't worthless,

I always appreciate a company thanking their customers. Sure it may bet 70% lip service at some companies but:

The act of actually forming words, even if you don't 100% feel them at the time you write them, actually reinforces the idea you say in your mind.

And, I actually believe it is a sincere thanks in this case.


The act of thanking customers puts that idea that customers satisfaction is the end goal helps incrementally to wake up creative people barrelling down a blind alley toward a personal goal of theirs to step back from their pet project and ask themselves if its the best coars for the customers or not.

So the thanks is a good present...sincirely.

And I'll present a thanks back.. Cheers to the team at CCP for their creation of this virtual world and web community of real people from throughout the world !

So, uhhh, I sure do hope it's not something I can't redeem if I'm stuck in space for months on end... because seriously, as much as my accounts are paid and current, I haven't really logged in except to change skills once every 2/3 month for the last 4 months or so.

And I'm in w-space.

So... yeah.

I'm hoping it's a Nyx and all the skills necessary to fly one already trained.

Supercarrier proliferation for the win!

Why would I appreciate 50 to 100k of spell points given to every player?

To me the game has nothing to do with keeping up with other players and everything to do with my individual character's journey and my experiences along the way.

Of course a large gift of spell points might work against that journey.. the anticipation of getting to levels is part of the fun and the most extreme version would have everyone start with all skills.

But a small gift is sort of like being given an extra cookie... a little indulgence to mark celebration . You can't eat all the cookies you want everyday or you'd get fat, but hey its nice to live it up a bit everynow and then ... and getting bonus to apply to something you never wanted to train but should, etc puts a little snap in your step.

: ) hope thats what I get !
