Today's post comes from the world's greatest CSM candidate and the man most deserving of being YOUR representative in this once esteemed council - Joffy Aulx-Gao.
CSM Status and What Can Be Done
Recently a lot of distrust and bad relations have developed between the CSM, CCP and the player base. The CSM leaks like a sieve and rumblings have developed that wonder if we even need a CSM at all? So what can be done?
It is easy to say the CSM needs more integrity. But specifically perhaps one way to solve this problem is taking legal action against those that breach the NDA. Currently breaching the NDA is without real consequences except being kicked from the CSM, perhaps we need to re-establish trust between CCP and the player-base.
Most companies do something similar and CCP would not be that different if they enforced the NDA more strongly.
The consequences of this can be big and devastating for all of us. The CSM might end up being shut down or changed because without trust the CSM is useless, can’t give feedback, doesn’t know what to ask the community, nothing.
With no CSM how will we give feedback and suggestions before the ideas are thrown out to the masses? In EVE it’s very beneficial to have a group of players that really knows the game and can "foresee" what will happen with certain changes.
In my opinion we need to maintain the CSM.
I plan to do my best to get into the CSM but if it fails or CSM is disbanded I will offer to help CCP to make EVE more accessible for disabled even if I have do it by myself.
CCP has given me so much joy, happiness and friends, it’s about time I give something back to CCP.
If I am fortunate enough to be elected as your representative to the CSM I will bring integrity, honor and hard-work back to the council. This is my promise.
