CSM 7 Support Part 2: Looking Down
There are a few candidates that, for one reason or another, I will not support in the slightest.
Roc Wieler: Ohhhhhh Roc. Never mind the nonexistant platform. Never mind the ego-trips that make even mine seem tame. I’ve described the CSM as a sounding board / advisory board. This year Roc’s message is both “Look at me” and “Listen to me.” About. What. Well let’s check out his blog. Hang on looking for a post about EvE that isn’t a repost. Still looking. Maybe on the next page. Hmmm bit of RP stuff there but nothing in or about the game. You know what it’s already October of last year. I’m giving up. He doesn’t talk about EvE. Mittens may have an ego but at least he has a message too. Real easy to not support.
Kelduum Revaan: This one is actually pretty simple. He’s been running EvE Uni, a teaching corp/alliance for a LOOOOOONG time. This is what you teach your people? Seriously? That much fail in lowsec in 1 month? If Kelduum cannot communicate the importance of proper fittings to his own people than how can we expect him to communicate important issues to CCP in his role as a CSM member. This ignores his ludicrous dec-shield stance (ironic post on this coming up) a “Fix War-dec” proposal even more unworkable than mine, and I wrote half of mine drunk, I just cannot find anything to like about this guy other than the fact that his debate with Hans has me looking at Hans in a totally new light. Kelduum gets no support here.
Michael BoltonIII: Let me look at his platform: Nope, nope, nope, troll, troll, nope. There are two things on here that are more or less straight lifts from theme park games. If you want to play theme parks they are out there. Audio Alerts for Local. Hmm. Situational awareness is key, but so is stealth and surprise. I’m leaning more towards a delayed local in the first place, not easy warnings for people. Not Supported.
On the bubble:
- Mike Azariah: I’m actually ok on his platform, but I don’t trust roleplayers. They do stupid things for the wrong reasons
- Riverini: Not anything personal, for heaven’s sake the man pays me to write articles from time to time, but more because I suspect he is a more valuable asset to the community outside looking in.
- Elise Randolph: What’s there to vote for that isn’t better covered elsewhere?
- Voloses: What more nullsec people? Also very vague goals. Of course if RAZOR votes for him he gets a seat.
