Three Big Questions
1.) Do you guys plan on 'spotlighting' or otherwise publically focusing on a particular issue/feature you'd like to see, like was done early on with CSM 6 and TiDi?
Yes. There are a lot of features being worked on already, which was the case with TiDi as well, but the CSM seems to be pretty unanimous in that we're going to 'spotlight' a POS re-vamp as our first big ~thing~ to make sure it doesn't get side-tracked.2.) Has CCP discussed how the CSM are going to be involved with Dust 514?
There's been no talk so far about a DUST CSM. We met with the Senior and Executive producers of DUST before FanFest and several of us spoke even more with them over that weekend. They seemed much more engaged and positive about soliciting information and opinions from the CSM and the player base than what I've seen before. Now that the 'covers are off' of DUST, I expect to see CSM 7 more involved in how the two games affect each other.3.) What are some of your plans for improving communications in CSM 7 vs. CSM 6?
One thing to clarify is that our goal of improving comms is more a matter for us as a group (CSM) to solve than CCP holding us back in any way. Quite a few of us are on some of the popular podcasts and EVE Radio regularly. Beyond that we're looking at doing a version of the past EVE Dev chats using EVE Voice. We want to do some sort of "Town Hall" format on multiple occasions throughout the term. Personally, in the near term, I would like to see us do something right before and then after the June CSM Summit.
TLDR - We are actively working on several ideas which we'll roll out in the next few weeks once they become formalized.On The Web
