I find it immensely important, having read as much of this thread as humanly possible while still in an email/meeting/phonecall flurry yesterday, to let you guys know that Pann didn't abandon this thread on purpose. She had a family emergency in what is possibly the worst possible timing in the history of the internet, about 2 minutes after her second post in here. Everything is ok with that situation (talked to her yesterday). Whether you believe me or not, thems the facts. Saying that, obviously, on the day this thread began would have sounded ludicrous at best, spurious at least. Sort of like "my dog ate my homework" when your dog ACTUALLY ate it.

I haven't yet gotten to the blog responses, Facebook comments or reviewing Twitter hashtags. So please understand if I don't respond in a timely fashion in any venue and understand too that many questions simply cannot be answered directly. The nature of the beast.

The community team, likewise, has had their hands full with (as leniently as possible) enforcing forum rules and relaying information. We're all in it for the long haul though.

If some of my responses that I end up making do sound glib, I can assure you it is not because I don't understand the gravity of the situation at hand or the trueness of emotion/logic behind player opinion. It's because, frankly, of who I am.

Furthermore, if only some stuff gets answers or some seemingly random threads get attention, its also the nature of that same beast. Thanks for listening.

Thanks for that Manifest. While CCP has demonstrated that we the players apparently cannot trust anything we get told by them, I'm sure this is one of the things noone would stoop to.

Good luck to her and her family.

ps: We really don't need her replies anymore to be quite honest, but if she feels up to it, here's my collection of good posts in the parley thread:

882, 1401, 1920, 2215, 2482, 2698, 3409, 3919, 5390, 6599, 7580

She would also probably need to read through:
this by Tippia
this by Meissa Anunthiel

And possibly listen to this podcast on the way to the office

And probably read up on 'Parlay' and how it might not be a great idea to have some GMs ban people like Helicity Boson and Liang Nuren during one.

Honestly... Pann should quit her job. She was too good for CCP back then, she's too good for CCP now.

I would also like to extend my best wishes to CCP Pann and her family.

I wish Pann and her family good luck and hope all is resolved. Nothing is more important that family and friends.

Is "had a family emergency" Icelandic for "got canned"?

No, I think it's the reverse. Once she saw Zulu destroying what little progress she had made, she told her bosses she had to leave due to a 'family emergency'.

It is interesting and it would be nice to know the truth.

The last 2 days has been the biggest public relations disaster in the history of MMOs.

I would be curious to know if the PR was ignored or missing.

Pann has a long history in Eve, she was there at the beginning, and is truly appreciated for the quality of her communication.

I wish her the best too.
