Going to be a short post today, just a quick update on CSM 9 as it stands now.
After some great discussion, it was decided that CSM 9 will be the first CSM with no officers or titles*. One Team, One Dream. That doesn't mean we're going to be all huggy, hand holdy, and in agreement with each other at all times. What it does mean is that we're going to be focused on working together to help make Eve a better game, without concern for arbitrary titles that don't mean much at the end of the day aside from acting as ePeen enlargement cream.
I have seen some concerns leveled by some members of the community regarding: "But then who does what?" I expect that as certain projects and situations arise, roles for those specific things will be assigned or volunteered for on a case by case basis.
I'm sure other members will have more to say in the coming hours/days. Thus far, the only other thing I have to report is that everyone seems to be meshing well, and the members of CSM9 seem to all be in really good spirits and looking forward to getting to work sometime in the very near future.
*It was decided that should anything go wrong this term, we will simply blame Xander for it. With the elimination of all other titles, it's still in discussion if that will also include Scapegoat.
