officially thrown his hat into the CSM7 ring.
We were all hoping it would happen. And it has.
I am particularly glad that he is taking an interest in war declaration mechanics. He draws a particularly interesting analogy to his real life, that of raising goats, and to some trouble he got into with a neighbour and a local magistrate. Basically, far too many rules hindered his ability to come to a fair and equitable outcome to his squabble. He'd like to see fewer rules in EVE Online so that players can work out their differences free of the heavy hand of magistrates and the like.
Even though Mintrolio is from 0.0 space, believing it is the best secs of all, he does understand that not everyone shares his views on secs. He understands there are many different types of secs in EVE Online. There are many issues that are very important, but secs is most important to Mintrolio.
Unlike most of the 0.0 candidates, Mintrolio has a broader outlook on the game as a whole. He looks to represent all secs, even the secs he's not familiar with. Even low secs. He'll bend over to help out with low secs. If that is what it will take. He'll take it.
If Darius III does not run, I'm throwing my two votes Mintrolio's way. If he can improve secs in EVE, who are we not to vote for him?
