EVE Online Partnership Program

I have tried multiple times to submit the application but I get an error every time.
I did complete every form field. And there were no network errors on the form submit. I tried multiple browsers and turned off ad blocking. Out of ideas.

Any suggestions? Did anyone else get this?

I figured it out.
Too many words in the field that asks you to describe what you do.
I shortened the explanation and the error turned to success.

Some of the content created outside the game is awesome so I figure this is a good program on a fundamental level.

I’m curious though, since the content rules clearly state. “Avoid behavior which could be construed as … harassment … Not contain … hateful … material.”, where in space does this leave James 315 Ganky God and the rest of the aggression focussed mob?

I mean let’s be honest , here’s an awful lot of hatred and prejudicial attitudes out there that are frequently and repeatedly directed at miners, ‘Care Bears’ and basically anyone who doesn’t play the game in exactly the way that they (try to) dictate it should be played, and this often makes it way into content.

This guy might be taking Eve a little too seriously.

Is that even possible?

And here’s the link if you fancy a copy … https://www.upress.umn.edu/book-division/books/internet-spaceships-are-serious-business and https://www.amazon.co.uk/Internet-Spaceships-Are-Serious-Business/dp/0816699089

Nobody in Code hates miners, per se. If the miners would transcend their vicious ways, they would be welcomed into the Eve community.

Vicious ways? … :face_with_raised_eyebrow:

The Eve community? … :face_with_raised_eyebrow:

I’m kinda tempted to write something possibly a little rude here but being British I’m way too polite for. Whilst I do genuinely respect the fact that this, is, apparently, your opinion, put simply, it’s just a tiny bit bonkers.

In terms of language, there’s a disconnect, because given that gankers frequently deride (most and/or all) miners as risk-averse ‘carebears’ to then have you describe them as ‘vicious’ is contradictory and frankly just a little bit laughable.

Have played the game for well over a decade, I’ve yet to see a miner warp up to some overcompensating macho stud blowing unarmed stuff up in their heavily armed ship to give them grief, bump them, and/or indeed blow them up, not least of all because mining ships are, by design, unarmed.

As far as the Eve community goes, I do actually feel like I’m already part of it.

Not the community of misanthropic suicide gankers, with a quasi-religious obsession with James 315, extracting ‘danger money’ (in the style and manner of the Mafia) from other players on pain of grief, bumping and destruction, but the other one.

The one where I have come across people who are generous to newbies and other pilots, the one that involves community-minded things like B4R, inclusivity, kindness and so on, and for me personally, this is where the community lies, if it lies anywhere.

When George Lucas wrote about the Jedi, it was based on a bunch of philosophies including, primarily, Zen Buddhism. I think this is noteworthy.

Yoda: beware of the dark side. Anger, fear, aggression. The dark side of the Force are they. Easily they flow, quick to join you in a fight. Once you start down the dark path, forever will it dominate your destiny, consume you it will, as it did Obi-Wan’s apprentice.

Luke: Is the dark side stronger?

Yoda: No… no… no. Quicker, easier, more seductive.

Luke: But how am I to know the good side from the bad?

Yoda: You will know. When you are calm, at peace. Passive. A Jedi uses the Force for knowledge and defence, never for attack.

I have thought for a long time that the way a lot of MMORPGs work means that there are elements of your real-life psychology and personality that inevitably creep in. The complexity of Eve, does, I think, lead to this being possibly truer here than in any other game.

In the same way that actors draw upon their real-life experiences to act, it’s fairly hard to be a consistent vicious killer in this game unless you have been, or are well on the way to being seduced by the dark side.

Having said all this, it’s a big universe and if you really feel that doing bad stuff to other people all the time for kicks is your true calling, then off you toddle.

Me? I prefer to live in the light.

Do you really think that the Buddha would endorse stealing ore deposits? Baseliners need that material more than greedy capsuleers.

I don’t support afk mining if that’s what you’re alluding to and I feel strongly that CCP should take action again people who pull this one. Personally, I don’t do it, partly because it’s clearly cheating and I don’t do that, but also because what’s the point of playing the game unless you’re engaged wth it?

So as far as being greedy and stealing goes, I don’t do that either, I work hard for the ore that I collect thank you very much.

The fact remains - when you take ore from the belt, it is not available for the next person - who may need it more than you do.

As long as you’re not being silly about it by multi-boxing with 20 ships and so on, then I figure it’s probably fair enough, there’s normally a whole bunch of us mining so everyone gets some.

I’m not quite sure how this plays out however as a defence of ganking, we’ve had the danger money scams, the bulling, the constant bumping, the quasi-religious obsession with James 315, the anti-afk suicide ganking, so is the argument now that you lot are somehow here to moderate greed?

How do you measure this? What’s the cut-off point? Where are the metrics? Oh, and who exactly put you in charge? < laughs > Oh yeah, nobody. < cackling laughter >

Are miners born crazy, or is it the mining that makes them so?

Probably a bit of both in all honesty … :laughing:
