Not sure what to say!

Well.... I was going to wait until the launch of the Alpha Clone update before talking about CSM candidacy.... or in fact anything else.

Unfortunately, since the update, I cannot create a new clone. Every time I try (on this computer or another) the game crashes as soon as I try to change the age of my new clone. So I have not yet got to experience the new NPE.
I will keep on working on it! (and by that I mean trying and continually restarting my computer).

CCP Support during the CSM Election

Busy tanking my energy whilst waiting for the new campaign season. Scanning and Hacking sites is surprisingly relaxing...

Some things have developed in the direction of positive with regards to New Players.... which can only be positive.

But what is occupying my mind at the moment....

I have been getting in game notifications about Dev Blogs.
Why is this in game notification system not being used to remind people to vote in a CSM election? How else are the ignorant high-sec carebears to gain a representative against organised null-sec blocks??

If I were Gevlon, I would have a theory.....

Update!

So I have been having problems ever since the new launcher was released... every time I log in I have to resubscribe to all my chat channels. Very annoying.

The Citadels and the changes to the trading in New Eden have also created interesting situations for me, and my income has dropped, because I have not been prepared (until now... or maybe later) to invest the time to make the changes needed. Too busy running exploring alts.

Apart from getting skill points just for killing a rat or two... maybe Exploring is my new future... stay tuned!

Brexit

As a British person living and working in Germany for the last fifteen years I have been following the ups and downs back home with regards to the discussion about the EU.

When I woke up on Friday morning, I just couldn't get this scene from one of my favourite movies (the one that inspired me to study medicine) out of my head. It is only 10 seconds long... and well worth a look!

Update

So the last few weeks have been quite busy for me. The release of the Citadels and the crash in the PLEX market created a need for quite some restructuring of my game. Fortunately I have enough alts to have taken advantage of the Skill Injector Boom at the start.

Slowly looking at getting more into exploration again at the moment. Scanning stuff down and running sites is making a nice change compared to mining fleet ops, industry and buy orders.

CSMXI Election Voting

Just a quickie:

https://community.eveonline.com/news/dev-blogs/csm-11-election-results/

The statistics have been released.... there were less voters than last year.
I was the 7th to last eliminated out of 53 candidates. Interesting to see how the voting worked.

#OCCUPYNEWEDEN



























2016 is looking like it is going to be an interesting year... just not so much for me. And now that the novelty of "that war" is wearing off... it is back to the grindstone. I heard that profits from exploring and data sites and stuff got run down. So maybe it is time for me to do more of that!

So this is a blog post very worth a read:

The thing I noticed or thought about Fanfest this year, was that I really missed the Security presentation. That was, for me, the highlight of the information from the last two years...

So 85% of people play in high sec, and very few % of them are in any way organised, or active and connected to the community enough to get any way involved in CSM type things. Thank heavens CCP can organise focus groups without having to take the CSM into account... because I don't know how otherwise they could get to the point behind at least 85% of the problems that new players have. I am looking forward to finding out!
