This is a quick post about a recent event, the real posts for today are the BL and Nulli 2015 reports.
So the news is out that Sion cannot run for CSM due to being a media guy. I also noticed that the last CCP dev contribution on TMC (reposting a dev blog or Scope video doesn't count) was in late November (you need one guess who was the last dev). It seems the new community exec is starting to cut down the obviously unprofessional stuff.
However it won't be enough. The CSM wasn't a wonderful thing that the big bad Goons corrupted, it was a dumb idea to begin with and Goons took advantage. In the absence of Sion, someone else will influence the devs to buff their group and nerf the others. Maybe he won't be so obvious and make an effort to at least look like someone who cares about the game as a whole, but at the end of the day, he'll be pushing changes for his own group against yours. The CSM has to go, with or without Sion. The future is in non-NDA focus groups.
