[ 2010.06.12 17:04:23 ] Mynxee > 3 are simple ones, 4 have more scope
[ 2010.06.12 17:04:51 ] Mynxee > before we get started on them, does anyone have anyhting else they think should be added to the agenda under Other Business?
[ 2010.06.12 17:06:35 ] Dierdra Vaal > nope
[ 2010.06.12 17:06:36 ] Mynxee > I will assume not then. Let's get onto the issues. Ankh do yo have a preference for teh sequence of yours? i would like to intersperse the others between yours.
[ 2010.06.12 17:06:41 ] TeaDaze > Just to ensure people post their wiki links properly
[ 2010.06.12 17:06:57 ] Ankhesentapemkah > no preference
[ 2010.06.12 17:07:34 ] Mynxee > OK. First issue to cover is (Ankh) Issue: Fix Factional Warfare
[ 2010.06.12 17:07:42 ] TeaDaze > http://wiki.eveonline.com/en/wiki/Fix_Factional_Warfare_%28CSM%29
[ 2010.06.12 17:07:44 ] Mynxee > ankh you have the floor to present this issue.
[ 2010.06.12 17:08:24 ] Ankhesentapemkah > Yes, I raise this as a general issue, because the CSM previously raised at least 14 specific FW Issues as problems, and none of them have been fixed in the past two years.
[ 2010.06.12 17:09:08 ] Dierdra Vaal > !
[ 2010.06.12 17:09:09 ] Ankhesentapemkah > According to Dierdra, CCP wants to have a major pass of FW at some point and then doesn't want to touch it again, thus raising small issues seperately is not going to be the correct approach
[ 2010.06.12 17:09:17 ] Ankhesentapemkah > if I said that correctly?
[ 2010.06.12 17:09:29 ] Dierdra Vaal > well they say that for all issues
[ 2010.06.12 17:09:31 ] Dierdra Vaal > not FW
[ 2010.06.12 17:09:36 ] Dierdra Vaal > they prefer to do it once
[ 2010.06.12 17:09:40 ] Dierdra Vaal > rather than lots of times
[ 2010.06.12 17:09:55 ] Dierdra Vaal > its been feedback on past CSM isues where we requested short term fixes
[ 2010.06.12 17:10:21 ] Ankhesentapemkah > Yes. What I do want fixed on short notice though, are the obvious bugs and the open exploits however.
[ 2010.06.12 17:11:09 ] Ankhesentapemkah > but dierdra is right that the other issues should be dealt with in one go, if devtime allows.
[ 2010.06.12 17:11:53 ] Mynxee > You may have to identify priorities for all the categories of fixes you list in your post
[ 2010.06.12 17:12:00 ] Mynxee > not here, but to CCP
[ 2010.06.12 17:12:01 ] Dierdra Vaal > !
[ 2010.06.12 17:12:06 ] Mynxee > go DV
[ 2010.06.12 17:12:11 ] Dierdra Vaal > ok
[ 2010.06.12 17:12:32 ] Dierdra Vaal > I strongly agree with this issue. The state FW is in is frankly disgraceful for something that actually could be really cool.
[ 2010.06.12 17:12:37 ] TeaDaze > !
[ 2010.06.12 17:12:43 ] Mynxee > go tea
[ 2010.06.12 17:12:48 ] Dierdra Vaal > I'm not finished :P
[ 2010.06.12 17:12:54 ] Mynxee > oh sorry LOL
[ 2010.06.12 17:13:16 ] Mynxee > continue DV.
[ 2010.06.12 17:13:21 ] Dierdra Vaal > I'm glad we've assigned this discussion time on the summit and ank and I will most likely prepare a presentation or something to help guide that discussion
[ 2010.06.12 17:13:28 ] Dierdra Vaal > end
[ 2010.06.12 17:13:35 ] Ankhesentapemkah > !
[ 2010.06.12 17:14:01 ] Mynxee > Q for DV: Is it your impression that the FW session would be used to raise the FW issue along with any succh presentation?
[ 2010.06.12 17:14:16 ] Mynxee > (end)
[ 2010.06.12 17:14:51 ] Dierdra Vaal > uhm well these are FW problems.. which we'll be talking about during the FW discussion. Thats what the presentation will most likely be about
[ 2010.06.12 17:14:58 ] Dierdra Vaal > does that answer your question? end
[ 2010.06.12 17:15:31 ] Mynxee > i ask in reference to petur's expressed concern about when CSM Issues will be raised. Will defer that to later in this meeting. (end)
[ 2010.06.12 17:15:33 ] Mynxee > go tea
[ 2010.06.12 17:15:36 ] TeaDaze > Many fix requests etc have already been passed by the previous CSMs, I don't see we need to raise yet another topic covering this when we can just use the FW discussion at the summit to progress things (or not).
[ 2010.06.12 17:16:07 ] TeaDaze > Raising the same thing 100times with slightly different wording isn't going to help. We have the session available so lets use it. [end]
[ 2010.06.12 17:16:20 ] Mynxee > ankh
[ 2010.06.12 17:16:22 ] Ankhesentapemkah > Dierdra and me might be preparing presentations on more issues than FW, I'd like to discuss this further under any other business at the end of the meeting so we can keep you guys up to date and informed properly. end
[ 2010.06.12 17:16:26 ] Ankhesentapemkah > !
[ 2010.06.12 17:16:30 ] Ankhesentapemkah > one more sorry in response to tea
[ 2010.06.12 17:16:36 ] Mynxee > ankh
[ 2010.06.12 17:17:32 ] Ankhesentapemkah > I want this issue raised so I can present the current exploits and status of FW, and have the general presentation. Plus having an actual issue also shows to the many waiting players that we're doing something about this, so its the communication part
[ 2010.06.12 17:17:35 ] Ankhesentapemkah > as well. End.
[ 2010.06.12 17:17:53 ] TeaDaze > !
[ 2010.06.12 17:17:58 ] Mynxee > tea
[ 2010.06.12 17:18:38 ] TeaDaze > We are just wasting discussion time in these meetings where we can cover other issues than ones already passed. You don't need to raise an issue just to put your name on it to discuss something already in the backlog with CCP. [end]
[ 2010.06.12 17:19:09 ] Ankhesentapemkah > !
[ 2010.06.12 17:19:16 ] Mynxee > ankh
[ 2010.06.12 17:19:56 ] Ankhesentapemkah > I personally think that 1 hour is not enough time for both marketing this issue to CCP and stress the importance of things in the backlog and hold a discussion about the status and future of FW>
[ 2010.06.12 17:19:59 ] Ankhesentapemkah > end
[ 2010.06.12 17:21:26 ] Ankhesentapemkah > oh and I also need to explain and possibly even reproduce all those expoits in there.
[ 2010.06.12 17:21:33 ] Mynxee > we could probably spend a full day on any number of scopey topics at the summit. but topics are many and time is limited. do you have a proposed suggestion or are you simply expressing an opinion? end.
[ 2010.06.12 17:22:09 ] Mynxee > how many exploits are you talking about ?
[ 2010.06.12 17:22:19 ] Dierdra Vaal > !
[ 2010.06.12 17:22:20 ] Ankhesentapemkah > about 10 of them?
[ 2010.06.12 17:22:32 ] Mynxee > go dv
[ 2010.06.12 17:22:49 ] Dierdra Vaal > just to say: the discussion times are not time for bughunting - showcasing bugs/exploits can be done outside discussion time. I also think we can vote on this. end
[ 2010.06.12 17:23:11 ] Ankhesentapemkah > !
[ 2010.06.12 17:23:15 ] Mynxee > ankh
[ 2010.06.12 17:24:15 ] Ankhesentapemkah > I'd like to split this thing between things: THe presenation, CCP telling us how much devtime fixing each of the backlog and new things costs and us prioritizing them, and discussing the future of FW and anything that can be included in a future
[ 2010.06.12 17:24:28 ] Ankhesentapemkah > expansion should CCP dedicate an expansion slot to improving FW mechanics.
[ 2010.06.12 17:24:30 ] Ankhesentapemkah > end
[ 2010.06.12 17:24:38 ] Sokratesz > !
[ 2010.06.12 17:24:44 ] Mynxee > sok
[ 2010.06.12 17:25:22 ] Sokratesz > its pretty clear that something needs to happen here, there is a dozen proposals on the table that have been discussed and accepted by past CSM's. no need to spend awhole lot of of time painstakingly explaining that to CCP, they know very fucking well
[ 2010.06.12 17:25:34 ] Sokratesz > that FW is broken, and this will require fist+table to get proper attention.
[ 2010.06.12 17:25:36 ] Sokratesz > [end]
[ 2010.06.12 17:25:46 ] TeaDaze > !
[ 2010.06.12 17:25:50 ] Ankhesentapemkah > you'll have my fist and my axe, har har! :)
[ 2010.06.12 17:25:52 ] Mynxee > tea
[ 2010.06.12 17:26:40 ] TeaDaze > I agree with Sok. It has been raised, it is on the agenda, it doesn't need more than one session scheduled to try to discuss the overall issues of FW. I think we are wasting time discussing it now when it is already on the table. [end]
[ 2010.06.12 17:26:56 ] Ankhesentapemkah > !
[ 2010.06.12 17:27:05 ] Mynxee > ankh
[ 2010.06.12 17:27:34 ] Ankhesentapemkah > I still dont think one hour is enough but I still need this issue raised so I can prepare the presentation with Dierdra in this context. If anything, drop the current roundtable slot and put this issue in its place.
[ 2010.06.12 17:27:35 ] Ankhesentapemkah > end
[ 2010.06.12 17:27:43 ] TeaDaze > !
[ 2010.06.12 17:27:52 ] Mynxee > i agree that ankh's proposal doesn't offer anything new. I don't see the need for a vote on this. I DO see the need for a FW session at the summit. THat is already a given.
[ 2010.06.12 17:28:01 ] Mynxee > (end)Go tea
[ 2010.06.12 17:28:22 ] Ankhesentapemkah > !
[ 2010.06.12 17:29:46 ] Mynxee > tea?
[ 2010.06.12 17:29:49 ] TeaDaze > You don't need this issue raised when it has already been passed in multiple issues with CSM4 and earlier - It has already been passed! You can discuss it at the summit etc without yet another proposal with the similar details on it...
[ 2010.06.12 17:30:22 ] TeaDaze > And trying to get a second session isn't worth in IMO considering what CCP said at the last summit [end]
[ 2010.06.12 17:30:40 ] Mynxee > ankh
[ 2010.06.12 17:30:41 ] Ankhesentapemkah > About half of the points in the issue are not raised as seperate issues yet but are important for FW, so it does offer a lot of new things at are important for the big-picture view of FW. SUch as the pirate factions in fw which have been requested on
[ 2010.06.12 17:30:45 ] Ankhesentapemkah > the forums but never raised.
[ 2010.06.12 17:31:05 ] Vuk Lau > !
[ 2010.06.12 17:31:14 ] Ankhesentapemkah > end I guess you can look them up.
[ 2010.06.12 17:31:23 ] Mynxee > vuk
[ 2010.06.12 17:31:29 ] Vuk Lau > just for the record I have guests but I am reading everything. I understand Eva concerns, but TD is right

[ 2010.06.12 17:32:15 ] Ankhesentapemkah > what about the presentation though, cant have a presenation without issue, plus we cant communicate with the players without an issue. Drop the roundtable slot, keep the issue!
[ 2010.06.12 17:32:16 ] Ankhesentapemkah > end
[ 2010.06.12 17:32:32 ] Mynxee > you can have presentation without issue because IT IS ALREADY SCHEDULED
[ 2010.06.12 17:32:42 ] Mynxee > and ISSUES ARE ALREADY PASSED
[ 2010.06.12 17:32:46 ] Ankhesentapemkah > well then pass the issue and integrate it in the roundtable slot
[ 2010.06.12 17:32:50 ] Mynxee > i propose you focus your presentation aroun that
[ 2010.06.12 17:32:53 ] Ankhesentapemkah > without an issue ID it cant be logged properly either
[ 2010.06.12 17:33:13 ] TeaDaze > !
[ 2010.06.12 17:33:19 ] Mynxee > tea
[ 2010.06.12 17:33:39 ] TeaDaze > One issue ID to cover all the exisiting issue IDs on all the exisiting FW issues? This seems pointless [end]
[ 2010.06.12 17:33:53 ] Dierdra Vaal > !
[ 2010.06.12 17:33:58 ] Mynxee > dv
[ 2010.06.12 17:34:00 ] Ankhesentapemkah > oh yes and why are you passing dierdras issue and discuss unfinished expansions which is basically the same thing?
[ 2010.06.12 17:34:08 ] Sokratesz > flerp
[ 2010.06.12 17:34:40 ] Dierdra Vaal > I can see this debate going in circles already. Just vote on the issue. Its on the agenda so yes you dont need to pass it technically, but voting on this now means everyone can move on to the next issue with minimal drama. end
[ 2010.06.12 17:35:33 ] Ankhesentapemkah > !
[ 2010.06.12 17:35:49 ] Mynxee > ankh
[ 2010.06.12 17:36:04 ] Mynxee > after ankh we will vote, then. easiest way to move on.
[ 2010.06.12 17:36:09 ] Ankhesentapemkah > Dierdra has done the same thing with his unfinished expansion and his issue was passed even though I argued against that, and now I do this thing and everyone is against me it seems. I find this odd and would say this is anti-ankh crap again.
[ 2010.06.12 17:36:16 ] Ankhesentapemkah > end
[ 2010.06.12 17:36:53 ] Sokratesz > in other news, sky is blue
[ 2010.06.12 17:37:38 ] TeaDaze > DV's issue specifically called them on the excellence issue. This FW is a rehash of previously passed issues
[ 2010.06.12 17:37:46 ] Dierdra Vaal > just vote guys
[ 2010.06.12 17:38:07 ] Mynxee > All in favor of Fix Factional Warfare raised by Ankh?
[ 2010.06.12 17:38:12 ] Ankhesentapemkah > Excellence is a rehash of the unfinished expansion issue which I raised.

[ 2010.06.12 17:41:05 ] Trebor Daehdoow > See the wiki for all the gory details, but in brief, this is a minimalist and very specific proposal to improve the UI in this area. It also ties in to another passed proposal, and it has been crafted to also help out color-blind players.
[ 2010.06.12 17:41:13 ] Trebor Daehdoow > Furthermore, it consists of a series of feature requests, each small, and each providing significant benefit. I tried to make the proposal as clear as possible, but if anyone has questions, fire away! [end]

[ 2010.06.12 19:14:11 ] Dierdra Vaal > I think focussing the Pve roundtable on missions would be better - we dont have room in the schedule for another roundtable so adding one means scrapping another. And while missions have come up, exploration and mining noticably less. We can always....
[ 2010.06.12 19:14:26 ] Dierdra Vaal > do things in december. Not everything needs to be covered now. end

[ 2010.06.12 19:14:48 ] Mynxee > also note that we may need to cover teh CSM4 "29" in a session that there currently isnt room for
[ 2010.06.12 19:14:51 ] Mynxee > ankh
[ 2010.06.12 19:14:54 ] Ankhesentapemkah > I could put the agents thing in the PVE session and the rest in this dynamic content issue. But that would mean two slots still... hmm. end

[ 2010.06.12 19:15:03 ] Vuk Lau > I wouldnt mind discussint everything we can think off, but as I said we are extremelly limited with time. Related to that, we should approach CCP about prolonging CSM stay on Iceland for one more day, cause TBH Iceland summit is productive as much
[ 2010.06.12 19:15:12 ] Vuk Lau > as all our rabble here all together
[ 2010.06.12 19:15:23 ] Ankhesentapemkah > \0/ vuk :)
[ 2010.06.12 19:15:32 ] Vuk Lau > and with time and nw with stakeholder thing, we have increased workload

[ 2010.06.12 19:16:07 ] Trebor Daehdoow > We need to focus on things that are achievable, so in Dec we can say 'Look, our way works'.

[ 2010.06.12 19:16:44 ] Mynxee > good point. the mission stuff is pretty specific and could be a launching point for other pve content to be discussed in Dec. Ankh, your thoughts?
[ 2010.06.12 19:17:27 ] Mynxee > (or anyone else's)
[ 2010.06.12 19:17:48 ] Ankhesentapemkah > hmm yes if I get enough time to discuss these things, which I worry about. dynamic missions, agent distribution, possibly sleeper AI someone wanted to discuss...

[ 2010.06.12 19:18:59 ] Mynxee > if i drop, dv take over and resolve actions regarding schedule.

[ 2010.06.12 19:20:12 ] Mynxee > ok: 1) will reply to xhagen w/dv's suggested points2) ankh discuss missions in PVE session3) we will agree on itnernal forums how to combine/remove 1 other item to free up a "CSM4 29" session
[ 2010.06.12 19:20:17 ] Mynxee > treb
[ 2010.06.12 19:20:22 ] Trebor Daehdoow > I ought to expand on my previous statement, to make it clear that while these sessions should focus on the big issues (like PVE, UI, nullsec), we ought to be ready with an action plan that can show definite results in a single cycle.
[ 2010.06.12 19:20:36 ] Trebor Daehdoow > And keep in mind, there are out-of-meeting opportunities to promote our positions. I am told that some ccp devs have a fondness for ethanol, for example. ok, thats all from me on this [end]
[ 2010.06.12 19:21:13 ] Vuk Lau > I also have one thing to ask some of you after the meeting is over
[ 2010.06.12 19:21:16 ] Mynxee > is everyone in agreement with my list above as the key things we gotta do to resolve the summit agenda question?
[ 2010.06.12 19:21:18 ] Vuk Lau > well all of you
[ 2010.06.12 19:21:23 ] Dierdra Vaal > agree
[ 2010.06.12 19:21:35 ] TeaDaze > agreed
[ 2010.06.12 19:21:39 ] Vuk Lau > add prolonging CSM-CCP summit for future due to increased workload
[ 2010.06.12 19:21:43 ] Trebor Daehdoow > aye
[ 2010.06.12 19:21:44 ] Vuk Lau > if others agree ofc
[ 2010.06.12 19:21:45 ] Ankhesentapemkah > err and the UI issue, was there a slot for that already?
[ 2010.06.12 19:21:54 ] Vuk Lau > yes it is
[ 2010.06.12 19:21:58 ] Dierdra Vaal > there's a UI discussion
[ 2010.06.12 19:22:09 ] Dierdra Vaal > which is basically exactly your issue

[ 2010.06.12 19:22:15 ] Mynxee > i propse we use the internal csm forums to hash out the details
[ 2010.06.12 19:22:16 ] Ankhesentapemkah > okay then I agree for the sake of not causing trouble with the schedule, although I'm heavily in favor for one more day
[ 2010.06.12 19:22:37 ] Mynxee > agreed we'll ask for four days in Dec
[ 2010.06.12 19:22:51 ] Mynxee > any other business?
[ 2010.06.12 19:22:54 ] Dierdra Vaal > yes
[ 2010.06.12 19:23:00 ] Mynxee > go dv
[ 2010.06.12 19:23:18 ] Dierdra Vaal > I want to make an excellence presentation for use during that issue - and I know ank's making a FW presentation
[ 2010.06.12 19:23:30 ] Dierdra Vaal > maybe more of you are making presentations for various issues (low sec, 0.0?)
[ 2010.06.12 19:23:31 ] Dierdra Vaal > anyway
[ 2010.06.12 19:23:43 ] Vuk Lau > i will do the 0.0 one most likely
[ 2010.06.12 19:23:56 ] Dierdra Vaal > I will post the initial setup of the excellence presentation tomorrow on the internal forums - feedback is of course appreciated
[ 2010.06.12 19:24:09 ] Dierdra Vaal > I suggest the other presentations are handled the same way
[ 2010.06.12 19:24:10 ] Dierdra Vaal > end
[ 2010.06.12 19:24:30 ] Mynxee > i am putting together notes on the low sec one and yes may i please request that we all engage very actively on the CSM internal forums to remain well advised what we are each doing.
[ 2010.06.12 19:25:12 ] Mynxee > the forums document our work together for future CSM's so it's a good thing to do from that perspective as well.
[ 2010.06.12 19:25:14 ] Dierdra Vaal > keep in mind that some of us (I think teadaze and myself) are leaving for iceland the 19th (teadaze maybe 18th?) so dont wait until enxt weekend please
[ 2010.06.12 19:25:31 ] Mynxee > kk i'm working on my stuff tomorrow
[ 2010.06.12 19:25:33 ] Ankhesentapemkah > !
[ 2010.06.12 19:25:34 ] Trebor Daehdoow > As long as the presentations represent the consensus view of the council, I have no problem with this. I can take the lag one.
[ 2010.06.12 19:25:38 ] Mynxee > ankh
[ 2010.06.12 19:25:59 ] Ankhesentapemkah > I'd like to apologize for not spending enough time on the CSM last week, been very busy with the elections and had crunch time for the next release of our game
[ 2010.06.12 19:26:10 ] Ankhesentapemkah > it'll be a lot better from now on.
[ 2010.06.12 19:26:29 ] Mynxee > cool. all good.
