Candidate: The Judge
In real life
CO2 Senior Diplomat
I want to earn your vote and be the person you can voice your concerns, issues, hopes and ideas to. I want to make sure that every good idea and every concern that the EVE community has makes it to CCP and the rest of the CSM.
While I advocate for a wide variety of issues, I wouldn’t exactly call that a platform. What I hope to achieve is the repairing of relationships between CCP and the CSM while providing valid and meaningful feedback. We as a community need, and deserve, CSM representatives that are willing to engage with the community and bring their voices back to the boardroom at CCP. This is something I want to do to repay the community that has been a large part of my life for so many years.
Experience in Eve
I have been playing EVE since 2003. While I have been involved with many corporations and alliances over the years, the most enjoyable is by far being Circle-Of-Two.
I am currently honored to hold the title of Senior Diplomat and Fleet Commander for the alliance Circle-Of-Two. I am also a proud member of the Circle-Of-Two Alliance Tournament team. I have lived for large amounts of time in both High and Low security space. I like to think I have my ear to the ground on the issues facing pilots from all over New Eden. I come to you not only as a candidate for Nullsec, but as a person who wants nothing more than to see EVE continue to succeed, evolve and grow.
Real life experience
What are the top three issues currently facing EVE and why?
Why will you be an effective CSM member?
In what way do you think the CSM can be improved?The three things that it has become apparent that are hampering the effectiveness of the CSM are open and honest discussion, leaking and trust.
With my experience as a Senior Diplomat for Circle-Of-Two I have had the opportunity to further my skills at providing feedback and analyzing information in an effective and diplomatic way. While I am sure that most candidates have a good head on their shoulders and could provide CCP the feedback they are looking for, there are very few candidates with a backround of effectively doing so without burning bridges. There is a way of talking which not many people have learnt, which I have, and I would like to bring that skill to the CSM.
On the topic of leaking. Leaking is the single biggest threat to the CSM. The CSM ceases to be an effective representative body as soon as the trust between CCP and the CSM breaks down. I, The Judge, vow to all voters that I will not leak ANY NDA information. I believe this is a promise all candidates should make to their constituents.
In your opinion, how can CCP keep EVE fun for as many players as possible?
