Dr Spodumain - CSM 16 - Always go for spod first

You have my vote. Your Corp is the best ever.


Best Industrial corp I’ve been in thus far hands down! He’s got my vote hands down!


In my short journey in EVE, I have not met a greater space leader than Dr. Spodumain. He is knowledgeable and well-versed with the intricacies of this game and all that this universe has to offier, but more importantly, he is a genuinely wonderful guy.

Always go for spod first.

Now and forevermore.

You have my vote, sir.


When are you interviewing @Ashterothi? I’d like to know more. - Intended/prefered dynamic


Scheduled for this evening, most likely 18:00 EVE time assuming nothing weird happens.

Got my vote


If you’re after a little more context as to why I’m running, check out the interview I did with @Ashterothi. We chat a little bit about industry, third party development, and my professional background.

Hopefully we can work together again soon my dude, would love to have a chat on how EVE ‘actually’ works or something similar.


This foul individual not only refuses to support our important charity, but also boldly slanders us on public media, implying we’re a front for a drug ring.

We, the poor starving children of 1DQ1-A III, are good citizens and would never take part in such shady deals, and this individual has no proof whatsoever for his completely fake claims.

Therefore, we urge the so-called Doctor Spodumain to reconsider his stance on supporting the starving people.

I think you’ll find I made a more than generous donation to such a cause, considering the current financial state of the universe.

Had a chance to discuss CSM stuff, a little on the industrial changes, and a touch of reddit drama on the Push To Talk show alongslide the venerable @Brisc_Rubal

Details matter. Only post that has decorated and easy to read text. If someone puts effort into CSM things from the start I’ll better pick this one from all unknown to me candidates than those with walls of unreadable text.

Thanks dude I appreciate it. Campaign season has barely begun though. I’ve got some videos and what not to finish and put out soon :slight_smile:

Had an interesting chat the other day @White_0rchid and @Reicher514 on Between 2 Keepstars, check it out if you missed it.

Just watched your interview, and I like your focus on third party development.

I’m wondering how you feel about the possibility of opening up in-game UI modifications.

It really depends what you mean by in-game UI modifications.

We’ve already got tools that allow you to somewhat extend the UI of the game such as EveVision, and there are some existing ESI endpoints to allow you to open certain windows like Show Info and the Market.

Can you elaborate on some of the kinds of things you’re suggesting? It’s always going to be a fine line between adding a benign convenience feature and something that becomes a well abused tool.

For myself, I’d be really happy to just have some ability to do some basic cosmetic things, like different fonts. More hotkey flexibility, like keys to send commands to specific drones.

I’d be all for cosmetic enhancements, especially along the lines of the half-finished colour blind options that exist in the game.

Plus, and I know some people will have concerns regarding bots, there is no such thing as too many bindable keys. All the hotkeys, all the time, yes please!

Thanks to the generous donation of Interstellar Kredits from this CSM Candidate, I’ve been able to secure the necessary supplies for the starving and war-exhausted people of 1DQ1-A III.

Hereby I must retract my previous statement made in this thread, which was in fact premature and unnecessarily hostile.

And for that I sincerely apologize.

Nevertheless, since the supplies are located in the Jita system, and the people that need them are in a remote nullsec system, a completely new issue arises.

Knowing that the war between the nullsec empires is still in it’s full force, I realised - even though I’m the capsuleer representative of my people and therefore I’m limited only by believing - that trying to move the supplies myself would be doomed to fail. Therefore, the obvious next step is turning to the other CSM candidates for help.

Yesterday I’ve been able to finish the necessary preparations - the supplies have also been separated into parts and since the stories of capsuleer pilgrimages in Badger-class industrial ships have reached even the surface of our planet, I’ve decided to include those ships as well. I’ve also filtered out the CSM candidate list and selected a few that looked like they might be willing to participate in such a pilgrimage.

Out of those few, if at least one Badger manages to reach 1DQ1-A III, I will consider it a success, though of course I believe with all my heart that all of them will.

Ultimately, I would wish to thank again Dr Spodumain for his generous contribution to a cause he initially appeared to have no connection with. I give you my word that the people of 1DQ1-A III will not forget it and will encourage everyone to vote for you in the upcoming election, since it is my full belief that our selected CSM representatives should be willing to listen to every voice, no matter how insignificant. Our own vote and voice might very well be an example of those - insignificant and our story laughable to some, but hopefully people will see that it didn’t fall on deaf ears.

For my German speaking friends @Rich_Richman and I were recently on @Walldeck’s show talking CSM stuff. Well worth a watch for both English and German speakers, there’s translation for both throughout.
