EVE University will host the next Council of Stellar Management (CSM) Town Hall meeting on its public Mumble server on Saturday, April 26 at 19:00 EVE time.
This will be the final Town Hall for CSM8. The ninth CSM will be elected April 8-22, and announced at Fanfest on May 3.
Instructions for access to the UNI public Mumble server can be found here: http://eveuni.org/publicmumble
Each Town Hall is an open forum for the CSM to dialogue with EVE Online players about possible future directions for the game’s development. The CSM is a key stakeholder in CCP’s development process, and represents players’ interests.
This Town Hall will be simulcast by EVE Radio. Participants may submit questions to the CSM during the meeting, using an in-game chat channel.
On Saturday, May 10 at 16:00 EVE time, EVE University will host a live interview and Q&A session with Paul Elsy, better known as CCP Falcon, EVE Community Manager for CCP Games. The event will be open to everyone on EVE University’s public Mumble server.
The session will be moderated by Neville Smit, E-UNI Director of Education, who said, “We’ll talk about the future direction of the EVE Online community – and promoting a balance between good, supportive player content and some of the more nefarious activities for which EVE Online is famous. We will also talk about the reveals for the upcoming EVE Online expansion announced at Fanfest.”
Participants will need to set up Mumble access – follow these instructions for set-up: http://www.eveuni.org/publicmumble
