To date, the puzzle of the sandbox MMO Eve Online further blurred the boundary between reality and play. The CCP's engineers shot down a ban-hammer at Brian Schowneman, an American lobbyist for maritime law outside the game, and chose the official Brisbane Ruble inside. The reason is that corruption tells Shouneman to abuse his position as a member of the Stelllar Management Council to share "confidential information" that allowed another player "to conduct illegal transactions in the game." His bills were constantly banned in the game, and his co-founders were banned for one year.
For those who do not reach the speed with Eve Online, the Steering Board (CSM) is a small group of democratically elected. players who interact directly with developers, which you can read on the official page here. They get a deeper understanding of the internal work of IMO and provide the CPC with concise, more consistent feedback from the players. Being a member of CSM involves adhering to a strict code of conduct and compliance with non-disclosure agreements. According to the CPC, Shouneman failed to comply with the rules and abused the system for the benefit of his alliance
Skulduggery, backstabbery and theft is a common occurrence in Eve Online, but usually within the rules of the game. See the history of this space station abduction or a group of big money that ended in the collapse of the galaxy's collapse. However, these cases did not include members of the KSM who could meet with a person behind the curtain, so to speak. Below, as a video example of this blurring of roles, the video Shoneman used in her campaign to choose her in the CSM. Unfortunately and presumably contains the slogan "Again make Eve":
Shoneman stated on Twitter that he was innocent and that the CCP did not give him a clear reason for his prohibition and withdrawal from office for his sake. Just a few minutes ago, he also announced via Reddit that he would "fight these false allegations, restore my reputation and look for ways to address me for these careless actions." The CCP is silent, though intriguingly remembered that they "prohibit the rule that bans electronics during CSM sessions", assuming (at least me) that something caught on a microphone that was not intended.
The prohibition and accusations of the CCP had "immediate and negative effects" on his reputation in real life and in real life, she emphasized that Shouneman deliberately blurred the lines between his virtual and literal political cadres. He probably forgot that Eve Online is a video game and that the CCP reserves the right (in its licensing agreement) to turn off the players from orbit for any reason they like. He has no legal character, and his statement about Reddit looks like a political public. Some hope that it will somehow grow into a court case.
Eve Online is free to play, and you can find her official page here.
