I’m a candidate to a seat in CSM 8.

I’m running on an Industry-based platform.

If you know how painful it is to use a POS; if you do PI, moon mining, reactions, research and/or T2 inventions; if you manufacture ships or components; if you haul stuff or mine; I’m the perfect candidate for you to vote for. I know and share all your problems and wishes for these areas of the game. I will fight for you, I will fight for our common interests.

I have 4 years experience with EVE industry. I know what the EVE Industry problems are and I want to fix them. I will help CCP understand, prioritize and find solutions. My experience and knowledge will be important and determinant in moving the Industry agenda forward in the EVE development roadmap.

I have the maturity needed to perform the job required of a CSM Member; to communicate with CCP on a daily basis, to focus, to keep a constructive and ongoing conversation, to negotiate and be persuasive when needed.

Quantum Rise was 5 years ago, and since then industry had no development. Do you want to wait another 5 years?

I need you! Help me fix our game. Vote for me.

This is a resume of my official candidacy post. For more details read the complete post here .

Disclaimer: The first thing I want to make clear - I’m a Non-bloc Candidate, I’m running as an independent, so please don’t dismiss me due to my alliance affiliation. I bring experience and valid proposals to the table, read me out and make your own mind about my candidacy based on what I have to say and propose.

About Me

I live in Portugal and I’m a Software Developer. In Eve, I’m in Eternity INC. that is one of GSF Member corps. I've been playing EVE for 4 years and have done everything in this game. I started in empire, played solo for 1 year and was about to quit when a director from Portuguese 0.0 corp found me and took me in. They helped me learn about everything regarding to PvE and PvP. Later I moved to Eternity, they introduced me the wonderful world of Industry and Capitals PvP.

Experience and Knowledge

In each election cycle, candidates see the CSM as a political office and will promise you the stars, but every year nothing is delivered. Why? Because the CSM is not about game design nor the Product Owner of Eve. CSM is a Stakeholder, they are the ones who have desires, needs and wants about Eve.

While the Stakeholders are the most important source of validation for the project, the most important person on the Scrum Team is the Product Owner. The Product Owner works with the Stakeholders, represents their interests to the developers Team. Understanding this is very important to be able to perform the role of a CSM member. I develop software for 12 years, 5 following scrum methodology. I have the experience, I understand how CCP works as a business, I know what are the boundaries the CSM has and its role in the development cycles of Eve.

My Platform

The CSM members aren't game designers, but that doesn't mean we have no solutions for problems this game faces. I personally have a lot of them, what will come in handy, because another role asked from the CSM is to be a soundboard for feedback and ideas. I will grab those moments to push my platform ideas and my constituent player base wishes.

I will not lie to you, I’m not everybody’s candidate. If I get elected I will not advocate the interests of all EVE players. That is an impossible task because everyone’s interests are often in opposition to each other. I will focus and narrow down my effort to particular issues and areas of game play I describe below. But don’t worry I will not hinder other people and their opinions, I will just follow a simple rule, “don’t talk about issues I don’t know nothing about”.

My platform issues and experience:

  • Planet Interaction
  • Invention
  • Ship Manufacturing
  • T2 Production
  • Moon Mining and Reactions
  • POSes
  • Sovereignty Warfare and 0.0

I have 3 years experience on those areas of the game play, I know about their problems, I know what needs a fix first. I will push these issues in the CSM and with CCP. I will make detailed posts about each one of them in my blog in the next weeks. I consider myself an expert on these game play areas.

If you live of PI, Moon Mining and reactions, if you set up an invention POS and live of research and T2 invention, if you manufacture something: I’m the perfect candidate for you to vote for, I know and share your problems. I will fight for you, I will fight for us and our common interests!

Now, that doesn't mean I don’t have a say on other issues like PVE, PVP, low or high sec, I have, I do PVP, I did PVE, I use low and high sec for many of my industrial activities, but I will put my platform issues first and will do my best to motivate other people to focus on them, to keep them in the CSM agenda and to to prioritize them above other issues. Remember that CSM and CCP cannot focus in every problem and issue at the same time, and this is where I come in, my experience and knowledge will be important and determinant to move the agenda of this platform forward.

By now some candidates are shaking their heads and saying NO ! but they do not understand that the reason why CCP elects 14 Players to the CSM is because each person brings specific experiences and defends different platforms, and it is the sum of all its members that make the CSM a true and complete representation body of the Eve community. Anyone saying it will defend all sides and issues of this game impartially and represent ALL the players is fooling themselves and trying to fool you. If that was true and possible, CCP will not need 14 people, they would just elect 1 of us.

Communication

My real life work and experience made me a good communicator. I have the experience and the maturity needed to perform the Job required of Member of CSM and to communicate with CCP on a daily basis, to focus, to keep a constructive and ongoing conversation, to negotiate and be persuasive when needed.

Communication with the community is also an important task and something that needs to improve. We need more, we need an official CSM website with an official CSM blog, where we speak as One. We need to be able to make posts and pools, independent of the Jita park and CCP forum rules, scrutiny and control.

Final Words

The CSM has become a powerful tool of player advocacy. The CSM has a power never held before. It can accomplish great things in the future but only if the correct people are voted in. As someone said, with great power comes great responsibility! We need responsible, knowledgeable, mature and experienced people in the CSM. I’m the man for the job.

Vote for me.

I need you.

Anything ca work with chili, so long as you mix the proper ratio of cheeses, can't have chili without cheese, and nothing is better than venison in a cheddar blanket.

Irish stew is the best.

Last night I made a new post.

Not exactly on the subject but I needed to warn other candidates to not make the same mistakes I did before it is too late...

Seems to have the heart of an industrialist.
