I’m Maria Taylor, an ordinary player from the Chinese alliance
Fraternity., running for CSM 15. The major goal I run for CSM this year is to represent the normally misunderstood players from China. Despite that I’m probably not in the exactly neutral position to cover every Chinese player, best effort will be exercised to ensure the majority of homegrown Tranquility Chinese players’ voice getting expressed.
My EVE Online Story
EVE Online was introduced to me by one of my friend. While both of us are developers, she highlighted the ESI functionality and expected me to make some use of it. Soon the full sandbox feature of the game attracts me to dig deeper into it. Lonetrek was my home for the first few months. I finished every single new player mission without guidance and formed my basic understanding of this game. Meanwhile I travel along with the help of Lonetrek Region Market (Probably that’s why I failed to leave that region at all).
But with the help of fellow friends and corp members, now my knowledge stretches across New Eden, including many different playstyles. While doing my usual work as a student and programmer, I am now capable to enjoy the game in many different perspective and work with lots of excellent players.
My areas of expertise
As a developer, I maintain the whole IT stack for my alliance. Occationally, to satisfy people’s requirement and make their life easier, I would make a few widgets. The data transparency is the best quality of this game to me. Being accessible to different variety of data allows me to build a clear vision of the community.
I have served as community leader in a few different projects. From translation works to running public services, I satisfy these users and deliver critical message to corresponding person. Two years of EVE life gives me the same sense of urgency to help others out.
The reason I am applying for the CSM
As a ordinary player, I stand a unique point to represent the Chinese community in Tranquility. Serenity is already well-known, but I want to bring native Chinese TQ players up. My current position allows me to receive first-hand feedback from Chinese players and I would make sure that they deliver to the right destination.
An easily reachable Point-of-Contact for the community.
