It seems that summer is when we take on projects, thuings to do while CCP is in a quieter state due to various vacations. Last year I went so far as to make powerpoint presentation that I have no idea if it was seen by more than myself. But I did do it and I had a small measure of pride in the work.
This year I am a bit more public on my project and have had a lot of chances to talk to folks and take in their input on incursions. But a side effect of the project IS the communication. Fleet after fleet have told me that they appreciate being approached, asked. I tell them that taking their suggestions does not mean change is in the offing and that I am doing this because I want to. But they seem to just like having a chance to be heard.
Dammit, I have run quite a few compaigns (and lost the majority of them) but I have always said I would be there for the players. Why am I just realizing that sometimes being there is not enough, I have to go bang on doors and ask the bloody questions myself.
A few folks write to me and other CSM folks, out of the blue, but relative to the population, not enough. I try my best to reply to most of them (unless another CSM member already has). One or two have expressed frustration with me as I don’t manage to get the instant change or response they were hoping for. (I cannot stop an expansion nor can I grab the security team by the ear and force them to go after the specific bots you know of)
Here is the question for you.
I have spoken to some fleets about incursions but when I finish this project who should I seek out and talk to NEXT. What group or comms would like an ear to bend and a person to relay their concerns?
and yes, I chose a sloth on purpose.
fly it like you won it
