Boy, we better hope nothing happens to this guy because it's becoming apparent that nothing happens without him around. Not to say that's a bad thing - he seems to be responsible for putting Eve back on the right path. But, oh my god, we seriously have to wait for him to get back before we have any new dev blogs? What sort of crazy **** is in some of these dev blogs that we need him to authorize it? Do the devs go batshit crazy with stupid ideas unless he polices them? Is there some pay to win dev blog laying around they've been dying to publish when he's not looking? CCP better put the mother of all life insurance policies on this guy because I don't think it can function without him.

What's ironical is that, with all the UI devblogs messing the publishing dates of all else, CCP should have a larger than usual publishing backlog.

That is, assuming the publishing guy is not on vacation w/o replacement.

This poster is stupid because they misread the OP... silly illiterates, thinking they should be allowed to post on the EVE-O forums.

"We will create the introduction thread if that is requested by the community. Also, we will have an ISD Seminar about the CCL team in the coming weeks in which you can ask your questions about the CCL team and provide some constructive feedback to us." - Countless pages of locked threads and numerous permabanned accounts later, change is coming.

Pretty much this. This happens every year, there's nothing particularly special about 2012 in that regard Smile

I hope you all have wonderful refreshing vacations and come back ready to kick butt for the Winter Expansion. Drink a few extraordinarily fine ales for me.

I have it on good authority that the UK was having trouble sourcing enough security guards to cover the Olympics, and were considering deploying the army. But then someone realised that Jon Lander was on holidays from Iceland and back in the UK, so the whole country can now relax knowing that they're well guarded.

When the boogeyman goes to sleep, he checks under the bed for Jon Lander.

Jon Lander doesn't sleep. He waits.

I need you to roll from your cubicle over to Jon Lander's palacial office (well deserved) - you don't even have to stand up just roll on your chair - then turn on his IBM supercomputer and select the entire queue of dev blogs and approve them all for publishing. Yes, that includes Soundwave's.
