This week I've participated in three streamed interviews and had at least two dozen conversations on various platforms. I released a new campaign video and a bunch of new memes over on Tweetfleet. And this weekend I have the CSM Battle Royale stream, a TS talk with an Alliance, and another streamer interview on Monday. It is full bore here at the Rixx4CSM Headquarters.
Next week, and probably once a week until the elections, I will be hosting a live TS Fireside Chat on our TeamSpeak server. Jump in and ask questions, spin yarns, talk about whatever you want to talk about. Primarily I'll be using these as a chance to listen. To hear from you and your concerns about the game we love. Goodness knows I don't know everything. And I'd like the chance to hear from other players. So keep your eyes open and I will be announcing the details in these pages next week.
This has been an interesting journey so far and it hasn't even really gotten started yet. A month from tomorrow the voting will actually begin. We won't find out the final, actual, confirmed candidate list until May 20th. And then boom, a week later voting starts. Wow. That month is going to go fast.
One thing I hadn't considered when I decided to run, and this might seem weird - was the other candidates. I don't think about this process as being "against" anyone else, or running against anyone. I'm running FOR something. But that doesn't change the fact that there are actually other candidates. A lot of them. Seemingly more every day. The application window is up for another week, so by the time this is all said and done, we very well could be looking at a record number of candidates this year. Which is amazing.
I have nothing against any of the candidates. In fact there are many that I don't even know. Or haven't met. Or never even heard of until recently. That is a testament to just how big the Eve community has gotten, especially if you don't try to keep up with the streaming side of things. I love streaming, don't get me wrong. But there are just so many. And so few hours in a day. Yesterday I watched two hours of CCP Community Devs celebrating Eve's 18th birthday stream because one of the prizes is a piece of art from me. Plus it was a fun stream. But I didn't get to play Eve yesterday. (Ok, I did sneak on for a few minutes and attack a Hecate with a Sentinel. It almost worked.)
All I know how to do is give it my all and see where the chips land. When this is over, win or (the other thing), I'll be able to say I did my best.
Onward & Upward.
