Vote Steve Ronuken for CSM
#1 - 2017-02-03 23:18:16 UTC
With the summit over (The minutes are in progress, and will hopefully be with you within a fortnight or so) the election season is now in full swing.

That's why I'm here to ask you to consider voting for me. With three terms under my belt, I have a good handle on the duties and responsibilities involved. As such, I'm not going to tell you "I'm going to make CCP make this change", because that's not what the CSM does. Anyone who does promise you a change, is either lying to you, or completely misunderstands the CSM.

What I am going to do is tell you the areas in the game I'm suited to giving advice to CCP. The interest groups that I understand and will represent.


  • Third party Development
  • Industry
  • Highsec in general.
  • Mining (and other resource gathering such as PI, gas reactions and so on)


I'm seriously plugged into the third party community, providing resources and tools to other developers and the wider eve community ( https://www.fuzzwork.co.uk is my main site)

Highsec industry is how I make my living in Eve, both invention, and general production.

I'm a great believer that there should be a mix of group and individual content. Some of it should be the same content, with more options opening up with more people.

Mining needs some work, mostly in game play around mining, rather than the core mechanic. (Though I'd like more options there too.

PI needs UI changes. I've proposed a few, though that's mostly to draw attention to problems, than to actually have them implemented.

Solo play is entirely valid. While that doesn't mean that all content has to work for it, it should always be considered. (By solo, I mean a player who, while engaging with the rest of Eve, does it on their own terms, without being beholden to larger organisations. See me for an example.)

Woo! CSM XI!

Thanks for your hard work in previous CSMs. After three terms I think you should consider not running.

I did consider it. However, I'm not close to burn out, and I feel I still have good feedback to pass to CCP.

The institutional knowledge that builds up is valuable (Not just from myself, but other members running again), letting newcomers skip some of the start up phase.

A vote for Steve is a no-brainer. He's the only guy on the ticket that does what he does and a CSM without Steve Ronuken will be lacking a huge amount of experience and expertise.

Hard work, no drama and a focus on areas that nobody else can bring. Vote Steve!

Sterling work again this year Steve, look forward to reading the minutes.

As the only representative that is (a) not in a large alliance that rigs the voting blocks in their favor with the sole intention of benefiting said alliance, and (b) the only chap who solidly represents solo play styles and industry, you can count on my vote again this year.

I wish you all the best with CSM XII

Steve is a great man. He has been an amazing help to the current CSM as a knowledgeable and trustworthy incumbent. I hope to see you on next term!

Well, since you're apparently willing to do CCP's work for free, you'll have my vote. Not because you're doing it for free, but because you're doing it right. But I still believe you've got scammed into this.

But hey, you look like a grown up and the choice here is yours. Se, be it.

CCP should hire Steve already, but until that happens, he gets a solid +1 from me.

With most people you would be right to get a little weary of someone who has been on the CSM as long as Steve has - but he really is the exception to the incumbency rule. From the moment CSM 11 stepped in, he was the font of institutional knowledge that we all relied upon to ease the transition period, and kept up that positive helpful attitude all the way through. His areas of expertise are those which very few candidates can offer insight on, making him a great representative for third party developers and market nerds alike. High Sec and Industry nerds need not look any further for their go-to candidate for CSM 12 and I hope you all will cast your support behind the man - the myth - the beard - fuzzy Steve Ronuken.

Steve is an amazing man, and it's not just because he has the beard of a god. I pity anyone running on a market/industry/highsec platform, because you will never find a better candidate than Steve. I can't imagine a CSM without Steve Ronuken! He will be on my ballot!

Hello Steve, thanks for running again. Me, my alt and I will be voting for you.

If I can pose a few questions;

1) Mining Crystals is one of the most complex munitions in Eve with a specialization down to individual ores. Yet the refining rigs from Upwell are simplified into primary groups. What is your view here?

2) Outer Ring Excavations is restricted to Null Sec, whilst Sisters of Eve and Thukker are available within high-sec without restriction. Why do you think this is so?

3) The values of Faction Standings have been eroded with loss of Anchorage and Jump Clone.What do you think can be added to restore the prestige of having earnt Standings?

Keep the good work, you got my voice,

I'm third party developper, i love your database conversion. If you can talk a few to improve API for POS management (or citadell management in future, if they replace moon mining pos)

You have my accounts votes yet again (for whatever that's worth). I have some bones to pick however regarding group industry, engineering complexes and very much agree with you around mining changes. Where did you suggestion box go? Is it easier to pester you on the tweetfleet slack?

Sorry for that short delay in getting back to you:

1) While mining crystals are a complex munition, they also have the simplest targets. You _know_ which crystal you should use on which asteroid. It's explicit in the names. Which balances out nicely. It also gives a good reason for group play, with the more limited cargo bays of the miners being supplemented by the boosters larger general bay. Mining crystals can also be swapped at will.

The refining rigs, on the other hand, are far more limited. Once installed, they can only be changed by destroying them. If they were split more, then you'd need to have a greater number of refineries. Which isn't viable.

2) You could expand the same question to Mordus Legion. I _suspect_ the real reason is to add 'terrain' to nullsec, so there are reasons to control certain systems.

3) I'm really not a fan of standings in their current form. Gating content behind a grind isn't fun. And jump clones hadn't been a standing benefit for years. You either just joined a jump clone corp for a day, or you had someone grind out standing in a corp, and then share it with everyone else in corp (and Bob protect anyone who accidentally got standing with the donor corp)

However!:
With the introduction of the Mining NPCs, we're beginning to see where high standings have a use. Where they should. Moderating NPC behavior. Sure, it's a limited number of corporations at the moment, but long term, I'd expect to see more.

Woo! CSM XI!

tweetfleet slack's a good place to grab me. I might not respond immediately (for some reason, my Boss actually expects me to work during office hours. odd, right?) but I do try to get back to everyone.

Depending on the format, evemail or email may work better. Or if we're massively off timezone.

Steve is good people.

Outside of the political posturing, the meme runs, and the general undesirables - stands Steve.

He's been a pillar of the 3rd party community for years, and hopefully will continue to be so for many more cycles

(Though if he can stop running for CSM so I can justify running myself.... ;) )

The CSM landscape changes yearly, but Steve is always guaranteed the number 1 spot on my ballot.

Keep up the good work, and keep making me resent you for the fact you keep running

+1 Pleased to see this incumbent CSM member running again, his ongoing commitment to 3rd party services and to the wider player development community as well as his long relationship with CCP will be a valuable asset to this year's CSM.

All our interactions they have been informative and level headed and has always shown a level of dedication and stamina which has rarely been matched by other CSM's.
