I’d like to say thanks to you and everybody else who contributed in making this event happen. I’m sure there was a lot of work involved. Looking forward to the Luminaire Celebration.

Are the Portraits only submitted on June 23 and where can we view the entries to vote on them?

Thanks again.

I think to be fair to those who show up, submissions will be on-site, in Luminaire, during the actual festivities.

Once the party starts, about a half-hour in, I’ll call for submissions. Then I’ll tally votes as the party goes on and announce winners near the end or so.

Depends on the schedule.

Thanks for the reply.

So the event starts at 15:00 Eve Time on June 23, 2018 and at 15:30 Eve Time you’re going to ask for portrait submissions via what, local chat?

15:30 to 15:45 is portrait submissions. So players send you an Eve mail message with what, a link to their portrait? Or do they just send a message like ‘Enter me for Mr. Federation contest’?

From 15:45 to 16:45 players will send their vote in an Eve mail message to you. Is the vote just for one portrait submission or do players pick one for Mr. Federation and one for Mrs. Federation? Also how will players view the submissions?

Sorry about the questions but those details aren’t included in the OP.

Two years ago everyone who wanted to participate did FED-up in local, got a number, and the people in local posted the number of their/her favourite. A good democratic system like the Gallente Federation itself.

But I suppose nothing here is chiseled in stone. It’s about having fun and being happy. Everything the Federation stands for. :heart:


You both pretty much got it right.

I was going to ask for participation in Luminaire local chat and accept entries via EVEmail, then create a new chat channel with a permanent listing of the participants in the MOTD, so I didn’t have to constantly link a billion names in local.

I was then going to have people EVEmail me their choices for Mr. and Mrs. Federation. One vote - one person.

Local is going to be PACKED with people racing, and for the event, as well as people passing through, so it’s going to be clogged. The best way for me to see who’s legitimate is via EVEmail. I did consider a survey, but I think it’s more official to do EVEmail voting.

Hopefully 15 minutes will be enough time for me to count everything up. If not, that’s okay, because we’ll still have a party going on!

I would like to thank everyone that voted for me! The organizers! And all other contestants! (Except Diana Kim)


I’ve had tons of fun there and some dedicated people cashed in on my pod, too. :smiley:


Gratz to all the winners and thanks to everybody who shot Fireworks at me and my ‘Firework Target’ can that was sitting under the Citadel hosting the event location.


The obligatory drone cam footage:




Congrats to the winners of the events. Thanks as well to everyone who organized and donated towards the event.

Had fun watching the event and some of the shenanigan’s in game and chat, while listening to music getting into the spirit of it all shooting fireworks at as much as possible :slight_smile: See you all next time.


Here is some camera drones footage, featuring the ARC Conga Line. :sun_with_face:


Apologies for the delay in response to this win: the Federal Frontier has witnessed an unprecedented level of conflict over the past week or so. Thanks to all that voted for my candidacy.

But thanks for the Megathron Navy Issue. I’ll be sure to put her to good use.

Megathron Navy roam incoming…
