I think CCP vaguely had a notion that having an outpost in every system in null would be a good thing and made them like they are, but didn't really think it through tbh.

Couldn't it "magically" move a random selection of your crap to Jita or somesuch when the outpost goes poof? Or is that too carebear?

Its too carebear, if people care enough about their assets, they should have a look at the update notes occasionally and as soon as any mention of destructible outposts comes about, should get them the hell out of dodge. That's assuming they are in the outpost already and other outposts aren't controlled by some entity that won't let them in or out. Probably should have evacuated their assets as soon as they unsubscribed if they plan on returning.

On isk sinks, any mmo that generates currency artificially should have a hefty load of isk sinks imo. Certainly helps with inflation, if eve had currency that could be actively destroyed it would be better but isk atm is mainly merely transferred, there is nothing to ensure it can disappear because of bounties/tier overseer effects which does nothing to mitigate this. Currency cannot be created too.

There are a bunch of fees and taxes built into the industry part of the game as well as alliance rents and wardec fees, and the LP stores make you pay 10-60 million ISK (in addition to LP points) for ships, implants, etc.   It does feel like the ISK pool is increasing, though, or it could just be fewer players -> more ISK in the hands of fewer people.

Is ok, I'll vote for you without listening, but they're using that Single Transferable Vote, so which candidates are your recommendations for the secondary choices?

CSM 10 will likely have to deal with the upcoming 0.0 revamp (if any), right?

Psersonally, I am keen to see Sion (the other official Goonfleet candidate) elected, but the two other Goons, Suzy Mudstone and some other no-name, are worse than joke candidates and would be wasted votes.

Manfred Sideous of PL is another very strong candidate who I like a lot on both personal and space-professional grounds, despite his unending attempts to kill Goonswarm: he would headshot us in a second if he saw another opening.  He knows his stuff, however, like few others in the game.

Also voted for Endie, Sion, Manfred, and a couple others that seemed about 0.0 and not total idiots (though, shrug, can't always tell from their CSM-forum posts).  Good luck. 

Hoping CSM 10 ends up being a team of solid null-sec-experienced representatives, because it certainly looks like the year's going to be all about that.

Many thanks to those who have voted for me: I really do appreciate the support.

In unrelated news I am in a 13 man Bat Country fleet right now and we just fought 40+ Russians in Venal, most in ishtars, and killed all their tackle by kiting them off gates.  Marine Rosger is a really skilled FC that I was delighted to pick up a while back, while we also have Halosponge back who people like COmstr will remember has amazing spacial awareness for kiting huge numbers of hostiles.

If you're worried that you need to be elite, don't: we had faction ships and hacs and recons but we also had three people in caracals, our logis were T1 and we didn't lose a single ship.

From what I saw, he didn't get enough votes to become a Permanent Member, so CCP dosn't have to actually invite Endie to Iceland, but can choose not too?

Anyways, congratulations.

Grats on winning a seat.  Only 2 "permanent" spots I think, so it's pretty hard to win the "go to Iceland" position I guess.

Huge thanks to those of you who voted for me: it's much appreciated.

And yes, I deliberately asked to be placed second on the CFC ballot in order to avoid any chance of being a permanent member and having to go to iceland more often than absolutely necessary, although that became less of an issue after the removal of the fanfest offer.  I want to help make Eve better: I don't hugely want to spend any more time on the Atlantic real-life rock of fire and ice than I can help.

Gorba got sacked from the CSM, for only attending once or twice.

UaxDeath replaces him/her.
