    CCP Guard and CCP Logibro, you guys have done a great job as CSM managers. Your consistent communications about CSM stuff has been excellent, and the updated CSM info page is a vast improvement ... thank Bob the original White Paper has been archived.

    Thanks for steering the CSM ship back into clearer, calmer waters.


    Thank you for the kind words, Mynxee :). We hope the updated, concise CSM information will result in more people reading up and getting involved.

    It is not required but there is also no rule against it.

    I'd like to take a moment to remind y'all that A) the NDA exists, so we can't just say "this is coming, this will be changed." & B) We're not CCP. We can't actually make changes directly. Our job is to convince CCP that they need to.

    You are far more likely to get an interesting discussion if you ask our thoughts regarding a subject, or asking us to discuss it.


    And to add, myself and CCP Logibro will also be there so some questions we might be able to grab and sort out on behalf of CCP. But the focus of the discussion will be on the CSM and their thoughts.

    We really can't learn much of what they are doing because of the NDA.


    Most of what they can't talk about is temporary and we try to do as little as we can of using the CSM as a vault for secrets :).

    Hey! The CSM for example was crucial in helping us get the Clone State features right in Ascension. They helped us know what we had right and guided us to a better path on some other parts of it. They've been a regular asset for the dev teams in chat channels throughout the term (we have one for each team and the CSM using HipChat). Devs have approached them regularly for a sentiment/sanity check on a bunch of changes and features.

    You can check out their collection of weekly summaries here and you can find their latest summit minutes here.

    In Germanys the penalty goes up to 300k for that offense for example.

    Fortunately, this is, in such a general way, not correct. For further info, please look here (article is in German language).

    Well, the Law is written in a very cryptic way. And often misunderstood.
    The current jurisdiction suggest that ur practice is against german law (see VG Hannover – Urteil vom 28. November 2013, Az. 10 A 5342/11. 28. November 2013 )
    exceptions exist in the FeV, GwG, SigV and TKG, neither of which apply here.
    The statement from the BMI is p useless as they are no judicial power (compared to the ruling above)


    Thank you for bringing this up but since we're not lawyers we won't dive deep into interpretations and just encourage everyone to abide by the law wherever they are and not do anything they are uncomfortable with :). If any advice is needed, we can be reached via the E mail address in the blog.

    I would like to know what CCP plans to do the coming year (not just during the election) to raise the profile of the CSM with the non-bloc playerbase, as the messaging this election was woefully lacking.


    Also @ CCP Guard

    You've been around for a while so maybe you can address what I'm fixing to say. I don't mean this to come across as an attack, but to throw out a few concerns that may or may not have been considered.

    How many people are so emotionally invested in this game that they're explicitly concerned about its inner development? For instance, I'm happy with the game. I like to see it improve. I like to read peoples input on what should be a focus for expansion. But at the end of the day I occasionally just want to spend an hour or so and relax with a little entertainment, and I would argue that the majority of people feel the same, as opposed to having the resources to absorb ourselves in a gaming universe - whether that happens inside or outside of its reality. Many of us just don't have that luxury, and even if we did there's truth in too much of a good thing, and we burn ourselves out in the process. In a list of priorities there are so many things infinitely more important.

    Granted, I fully understand the benefits associated with a player elected council. I think it's an awesome idea - IF - the whole campaign process weren't so ridiculous. When I participated in voting on the 2nd council (my first and last voting experience) I remember that not one candidate could introduce himself without an accompanying life story. It was all irrelevant and so very tiring, and I didn't have the time to sift through all of that just to discover that our common interests never went beyond Black Ops battleships and modular stations. I don't care if he was engaged and married to a fellow EVE player. I don't care if he fought in a space battle on the opposite side of the universe. And I don't care if he experienced the Jita rebellion.

    As far as I'm concerned, low voter turnout is a direct result of an uncaring attitude about the game and its players. We can throw all of our university knowledge and experience to the problem all day long and analyze it until we're crippled, but you'll never get the results you're looking for until the game starts to dramatically affect players lives.


    This actually touches on something I've said quite a often which is that we as developers never actually have a direct line of communication or a "relationship" with all our players at once. There are sections of the community that are more invested in the surrounding community and events, and there are others who just log in to play the game and don't mind the other stuff so much. And that's perfectly normal and fine.
    Our goal with a project such as the CSM is to try to make it as valuable as possible in the eyes of the invested members of the community, and help the CSM deliver value to all EVE players whether they know much about it or not. And another goal is always to increase awareness and interest in the CSM and get more people into the "engaged" segment of the community in general.

    In short I'm ok with not everybody caring about the CSM but I'd like to give more people a reason to.

    Third worst election in terms of participation.

    It's not a primary concern in itself but it is a clear indicator that we can (and in my mind need to) raise more interest for the CSM.

    There's still a lot of interest in the CSM project and there was an abundance of good candidates to pick from so in that regard we have a strong base to build on as I see it.


    What if people didn't vote because they think it's the best way to show you they don't think the CSM represent them anyway?


    That's a perfectly valid stance. Hopefully we can change those people's minds over the course of this term.

    There was definitely less push from our end and it was partly because the ownership transfer of the project caused delays and dropped balls that couldn't be recovered in time. Things like launcher graphics and Social media banners weren't produced and with Fanfest drawing closer there wasn't any room to scramble.

    That is something we'll have ready in time for the next election.

    Raising awareness of the CSM's work is then something we'll work on throughout the term with the CSM.

    The White Paper states four. Announcing two at Fanfest was our mistake :)

  • @@@@ EvE Glasgow - June 4th / UPDATED @@@@ in EVE Gameplay Center

    My Scottish friends and anyone travelling to be with us on this fine day - Yes, I will be there and I very much look forward to it. I've never been to a Scottish EVE meet before although I've had the pleasure of meeting Scottish pilots at Fanfest and elsewhere. I have been to Scotland before as I have friends and family there but it's been a long time. Look forward to coming back, this time to meet my immortal space friends.

    It requires more work than disabling it. Maybe we'll do that later but, I don't know, but the best solution right now is to disable it while we look at it.

    Hey, friends.

    Super quick. We heard you on the new sound effect introduced in yesterday's patch and we're disabling it as of tomorrow's downtime while we take a second look at it's purpose and design.

    Thanks for the feedback. And for anyone who really likes the new effect - you have until tomorrow to record it.
