    Two step for CSM 7

    Vote for me at http://community.eveonline.com/counc...Vote.asp?c=427

    This is a copy-paste of my eve-o thread here.

    Over the last year, I have been one of the hardest working members of CSM 6 (Trebor says so here). My main focus has been on representing wormhole residents, but I also have been contributing to discussions on topics like ship balancing, microtransactions and all the rest of the topics we discuss with CCP (see this wiki page)

    Accomplishments as a CSM 6 member

    While ultimately it is CCP that actually does the work, I did push hard on several specific features and bug fixes. The main one is Corporation Bookmarks. CCP has long wanted to get them done, but I think that continued pressure from me and the other CSM members pushed their priority up significantly. I brought up CPU usage on capital shield transporters, which was fixed in Crucible. I had significant input on POS fuel blocks, POCOs, pods on killmails, the Tier 3 BCs and several other topics.

    I also read and respond to all the EVE Mails and conversations I get, and pass on feedback to CCP. I spend a lot of time on the forums, including the EVE official forums, Failheap Challenge, and Kugu (which I requested CCP unblock).

    What still needs to be done

    Firstly, I haven't gotten everything done yet. While we do have corp bookmarks, POS life is still difficult and we still get our own special "features" (aka bugs) after every patch. For example, we have the wormhole mass bug mentioned in this thread.

    Secondly, the talk about the wormhole stabilizer (My blog post on the topic) just goes to prove that folks who live in w-space cannot see having a CSM rep as just a nice to have, but it is an absolute requirement. Without someone to speak up, CCP and other CSMs might ruin everything we have all worked so long and hard for.

    Thirdly, this year will really matter. This is the time CCP will be fixing all the broken stuff and starting to look at designs for longer term fixes, and I expect that POSes may show up on that list (later in the year). CCP is doing a ton of ship balancing at long last, and I love having input into that, especially since we certainly fit ships differently in w-space.

    Who I am in game

    I started playing EVE in 2005. After a brief (2 month) stay in empire, I moved out to 0.0 space, in Tribute as part of the Forsaken Empire alliance. I did a bunch of stuff in 0.0, mostly PvP, but some POS management and industry stuff as well. I stuck with the same corp though a corp merger and a bunch of different alliances, most of which I don't even remember anymore. After a couple of years in 0.0, I basically got bored of 0.0 life and moved back to empire to try my hand at invention, which had just come out. I fairly quickly made a bunch of ISK, but eventually got bored and ended up taking a break from EVE for a year or so.

    I came back to EVE shortly after the release of Apocrypha, in 2009. I had heard about the new wormhole content, and it sounded interesting to me. I joined a medium sized (at the time) wormhole corporation named Aperture Harmonics. Fairly soon after joining AHARM, I was made the US timezone director, and did a bunch of recruiting. AHARM was, and still is, a PvP corporation. We run sleeper sites in order to pay for new toys to kill stuff with. About 6 months after joining, I was made CEO, and ran the corp for a few months. Running a wormhole corporation was a lot of fun, but it does tend to burn folks out, and I took a short break from EVE in mid 2010. I came back just before our invasion of CCRES, which was the 2nd largest wormhole corp (behind us), and have been back ever since, though no longer as CEO.

    Who I am IRL

    My name is Josh Goldshlag, I am 34 years old, and live near Boston, MA. I am a computer programmer in my day job, and have previously worked in the game industry. My hobbies include cooking, photography and making my own maple syrup.

    You can find a lot more details in my blog – http://twostep4csm.blogspot.com
    I am on twitter as @two_step_eve
    If you have any questions, feel free to ask them here.

    If you are in a wormhole group or non- bloc he is a worthy candidate to look at

    I sent you one vote last time round. That was a mistake, you'll get both of my votes this time around!

    Two Step - What are your thoughts about allowing super capitals into unknown space?

    i strongly beleive CSM needs a WH advocate amongst it's membership, and you can't really know WH's unless you've lived in one. so until someone better comes along you have one of my votes.

    I'm not going to vote for twostep, but over the course of this CSM he's gone up in my estimation from complete oxygen thief and content devoid self-publicist to one of the better CSM members. This was achived through a convoluted process of 'being one of the better CSM members'. he's probably a nice chap irl too or something. whatever.

    CSM needs a WH candidate, and having had a browse through the ballot sheet twostep looks like the best man for the job to my ENORMOUS DISAPPOINTMENT.

    I think someone I spoke to put it best. "He delivered corp bookmarks as an alternate, imagine what he could do as a main..."



    Although I would stress caution on placing votes on single issue candidates, as although W-Space is mostly quarantined from the rest of Eve, ensuring the overall health of Eve as opposed to "just making life easier for my corp, fuck everyone else" is something people need to really start scrutinizing current candidates, and even yourselves for.

    Thanks for the endorsement, I'll be sure to quote it in my eve-o thread... :P

    I always make an effort to involve the FHC community in CSM stuff, even when you guys have gone full retard with Virt and Barth shitting up the place, which hasn't been happening recently...

    Got my vote for the corp bookmarks alone.

    (if I can be bothered to log in or vote)

    edit: Seriously though, whilst that's a "one issue" thing - I agree with what has been said already about the CSM needing a WH advocate who has experience of the "end game" and the nuances.
