We're a little undecided on that particular bit, Gaven, though I did mention internally it might be nice to "resurrect" the CRC Auxiliary for the purpose.

As I've said for the other rules similar to 6, I personally don't envision it being a super-strict guideline once that bunch of rules is eventually condensed into some sort of "don't be a cunt" rule, and it would be handled similarly to the Summit, where it's tolerated to the point that it doesn't become disruptive or harmful to the environment. As for the individual rules being listed, well, if we feel one particular item in the list doesn't need to be kept, it wouldn't be included in an "example" list of behaviors that fall under the purview of the condensed rule.

Morwen's Law:
1) The number of capsuleer women who are bisexual is greater than the number who are lesbian.
2) Most of the former group appear lesbian due to a lack of suitable male partners to go around.
3) The lack of suitable male partners can be summed up in most cases thusly: interested, worth the air they breathe, available; pick two.

If you resurrect the CRC Aux, then a anti egregious racism rule makes sense. CRC Aux was founded based on Gallente ideals, after all.

I think you might want to get that nailed down earlier rather than later in this process, as it will clarify things.

One advantage of a forum RP setting is that you don't have the problems we had with the moderators having separate characters. It is a lot easier to switch quickly to a special moderator account on a forum than it is to drop what you are doing, log out of EVE and then log back in.

Speaking of the multiple accounts - I'll see about posting the usergroups thing from the internal forums later. Not really a ton to discuss or change on it since it shouldn't affect that many people but it'd be good to put out there.

Is rule six IC, OOC, or both?

From an IC point of view, who is hosting these proposed forums? Seems like that should have an impact on the choice of IC rules.
Good questions, both.

I would think it very desirable for 6 to be taken IC - one of the biggest complaints about the quality of the IGS has frequently been that there's too much Gal-Cal or Min-Amarr nonsense.  "Federation must be destroyed", "Filthy Minmatar", "Slaver scum", et ceteras.  I think all of the factional disputes can very well be approached in ways more conducive to cross-faction discussion than base and banal mud slinging, right?

As to who hosts the thing IC, what organization(s) would be rich enough, neutral enough and interested enough to do so?  SCC?  CONCORD?  Nation ( :lol: )?  Others?

Silver in his guise as eccentric Caldari billionaire recluse. Although I know that the slightly sinister patina of his old involvement with the Nation would proabbly drive some folks off.

I'd say we can do a new organization, keep it vague, maybe HQed out of Syndicate. Syndicate: When your shell corporations need shell corporations.

Wealth.
Neutrality.
Interest in capsuleer affairs.

Sounds like a winning candidate to me.

Anyone got a better idea than Silver's?

Syndicate is nice idea but you will always have characters taking issue with it like with any other factions... I would personally favor a fictional and really neutral entity.

The only reason I suggested the CRC Auxiliary was because they were behind the original Summit. And with CCP being oh-so-delicate about copying said channel to pair with the official forum, it wouldn't be inappropriate for the CRC Aux to come back and make their own forum, I think.

That said...

... if we wanted this scenario, the Sisters of EVE would make sense.

Break a rule? Shitcan the thread with the moderator explanation "FUCK CAPSULEERS".

Why not an SOCT branch? They already spend all their time creeping on Capsuleers.

SocT is space hogwarts.

I'd say Thera, but :SOE:
Its too bad there's not some other well known named wormhole system to base it out of.

In terms of the 'who' is doing the operating. Eccentric capsuleer philanthropy is pretty well established as a thing. Chribba is pretty much a household name, so having justification for it might be as simple as having a group of capsuleers come together ICly and go 'the IGS sucks' and making this new forum.

Is there a petition we can all sign or would we have to each submit our own?

Yep, it would be entirely in the spirit of that now defunct group of alts. Of course I biomassed Alianora a while ago, so she can't make an actual reappearance :P
