Trebor is thoughtful, thorough and hard working. Not having him on CSM8 would be a terrible thing for the community, and I fully support him. If my vote wasn't going to a wormhole candidate, he would have all my votes.


and who pray tell do you endorse as WH candidate?

What can I say about Trebor that hasn't already been said before? I was honestly relieved when I saw that he decided to run again, because he will be without a doubt the CSMs most valuable asset. Trebor is an incredibly hard worker, pragmatic, knowledgeable, and very passionate about the position. He has an uncanny ability to both inspire and motivate those around him. Amazingly, his drive has only gotten stronger since I've been around on the CSM (since CSM 6).

I do not say this lightly: a CSM without Trebor would be at a massive disadvantage.

If you want maximum value for your vote, Trebor's your man. No one else has proven their value to this institution over the years more than he. Trebor Daehdoow brings to the CSM wisdom, experience, and the temperament to keep composure through stressful times and helps keep the group focused on the prize at all times (forward progress with CCP). He is not swayed by the public pressure to produce spectacles, and he knows both when to take action and when to use diplomacy instead. He is respected by CCP and his advice is listened to.

Trebor will provide the much-needed continuity between the work we've accomplished this year and that which CSM8 will accomplish, especially with regards to the Stakeholder project, which absolutely must continue for the sake of preserving the voice of every player.

I will be giving Trebor one of my votes, and I hope you all will as well!

Trebor, a few hints collected bring me to one critical question.
* Your Blog is not updated as often as it used to be. Granted, the fallout of summer 2011 gave material to write about, but still there was more to read from you in the last years and there is less to read these days.
* You start the recent entry with "After much consideration, I've decided to run for CSM8."
* Finally, the first post in this thread ends with the quote of your wife "... one more term ought to get me totally ripped".

This, to me, sounds like you are (or were) not fully convinced to do this any longer. Even if one more year, it doesn't seem likely there will be any further.

What convinced you to continue and invest as much energy to maintain your previous quality of work?

I know one can't predict the future, but to me it seems likely that you won't be running for CSM9. So I am unsure whether to invest in inevitable newcomers already instead.

Well, they oughta know what to do with them hogs out there for shure.

Trebor has proved his commitment and value to the CSM beyond all doubt. I'm running myself this year, but I also very much want Trebor to get a seat because we will need him on CSM8 for his insitutional knowledge and experience. Give Trebor (some of) your votes!

According to the CSM minutes, you want to completely wussify highsec, turning it into a carebear heaven where they can safely affect the rest of the game wtih no risk. This is clear evidence that you are utterly clueless. How would you respond to concerned voters who are worried that you'll actually get CCP to further reduce the already minimal risk that exists in highsec?

No, your rights end in optimal+2*falloff

1. As a memebr of DNS - Excellent

2. As a memebr of the eve community- Trebor has been introduce to more game play styles during his time in DNS. He showed up on our door step 2 years ago looking for a change in his game play stlye and to have the fun injected back into his game time. Over those 2 years Trebor has seen every member of DNS participate in the sandbox to its fullest. Form high sec ganking, can flipping, high sec care bearing, incursions, worm holes, low sec pvp, 0.0 pvp, pos pvp, structure grinding and the list goes on and on. He is always seeking knowledge on each play style so he can develope his over all approach to being a productive CSM memeber.

3. Trebor has also been a voice for the clandestine community as a whole. He will also be the link for all the new memebers of the CSM 8 so we do not take a step backwards in 2013. CCP has finally seen the value of this groups and alot of that is do to CSM 5, CSM 6, CSM 7. All of these he was an anchor on and CSM needs him to pass the torch.

I look forward to campaigning for him during this election cycle.

I resubbed EVE this year so I don't know about your past campaigns, but what would you say is one thing that EVE players have today that they wouldn't if you hadn't been on CSM?

Anyone who runs for CSM because they want to get CCP to implement any particular item is either naive or disingenuous. What effective CSMs do is provide decision support.

This can be something as focused as critiquing a devblog draft or making a good argument about a proposed change to the game, or as broad as arguing for a change in the way CCP plans releases.

That document, and CSM participation in release planning for the summer 2013 expansion (which you'll find out more about soon) were two of the high-points of CSM7 for me because they played to my strengths -- I am pretty good at finding consensus and crafting decent arguments, in particular those with a business focus (because never forget, CCP is a business).

In earlier CSMs, the prioritization crowdsourcing efforts I lead meant that when CCP decided to put more resources into fixing the existing game, CSM had a ready-made, organized list we could point to. That provided information that let CCP get more bang for their development buck.

CSM is all about trying to help CCP make decisions that are just a little bit better. A CSM can't point to something and honestly say "I made this happen", but working as part of the entire group, you can honestly say "We helped make things better".

While there will be some quality candidates running for CSM 8, everyone should save at least one of their votes to ensure Trebor is able to continue carrying the torch. His knowledge of the CSM, the game itself and ability to work with others ensures that he will be an asset for EVERY player. Trebor is passionate about his own opinions, but perfectly capable of being objective when the time for consensus is needed. He has the time and ability to do the hard work necessary to ensure a successful CSM. In my opinion, over three CSM terms, he has proven to be the best of us.

Ahahahah, well all hail the CFC & HBC approved CSM. I don't want to hear any complaints that they didn't warn us.

The forum drama from this is going to be hilarious.

Thanks for the answer Trebor. I vaguely remember The Mittani claiming at Fanfest 2012 that pod killmails showing implants was somehow born out of the CSMs recommendation for it on the Skype channel, so I was under the impression that there would be some things that get passed through on the insistence of CSM.

I think it's fair to say that you are the establishment candidate, Trebor. True to form, you seem to have the backing of other establishment people as well, such as your colleagues on the CSM. I was taking a leaf from real life politics where established candidates running for re-election are asked to point to their greatest accomplishments, while newcomers are asked to justify a need for change in leadership.

Anywho, more questions.

Candidates like Malcanis and James 315 have put forward some grand designs or concepts they'd like to see. Even if the CSM has so far been unable to enact real change, we know what their vision of EVE is. From your OP I can tell that its written from the inside perspective, which is why it offers assurances of responsiveness and diligent broad issue-advocacy to CCP. Could you perhaps share with us, unachievable through CSM as it may seem, your grand vision of where EVE should head next?

It's nice of you to mention me in Trebor's thread. My term for for concept you're trying to articulate is the philosophy of the game. As in, what concepts it should express.

Incidentally, I take some issue with the message in your sig. I would claim to be at least as dedicated to "the sandbox" as James, and if you would like to continue the discussion in my thread, I would be happy to do so.

Since I began playing EVE - about 3.5 years ago - you had my CSM vote from the beginning on and I am not going to change that. I respect your serious approach, the tons of work you put into the mandate and your overall attitute. Also I like that you are a people person who always answers eve messages in short time.

An excellent question. I had originally intended for CSM7 to be my final term, and in fact I deliberately reduced my public profile a bit because I wanted the other CSMs -- several of whom I expected to run again -- to get more attention. There were many reasons that factored into my decision, but some of the more relevant ones were:

1) The relationship between CSM and CCP changed significantly over the winter, and in all honesty, I want to keep up the pressure and increase CSM's influence even more.

2) None of the other active CSMs decided to run again, and continuity between CSM7 and CSM8 will be important, particularly in light of (1).

3) A lot of people whom I respect encouraged me to run again. And a few people whom I don't respect encouraged me not to run.

4) I've pushed for election reform for quite a while, because I thought it would improve the working quality and representativeness of the CSM. Now that we have a new system, I can more easily work to help elect candidates I think are worthwhile. I've done this in the past two elections -- telling people to send some of their votes to other candidates -- but the STV voting system makes this a lot easier.

Note that the STV system addresses your final question; you can vote a ballot that expresses your true preferences, without worrying about tactical considerations ("I like A more than B, but B can get elected, so I have to vote for B").

As for whether I would run for a 5th term, well, first I have to get elected for a 4th term!
