EVE Online's CSM Chairman Resigns Following Alliance Panel Controversy
The Mittani has been under a lot of fire since this yearÂs EVE Fanfest. Following the Alliance Panel presentation, CCP opened an investigation following allegations of the mocking of what appeared to be a suicidal player. The Mittani later posted an apology for the remarks and has since resigned his position as Council of Stellar Management Chairman.
CCP has posted a pair of new dev blogs in response to the Fanfest 2012 Alliance Panel reflecting on CCPÂs process for vetting the content of the panel, which is generally considered to be a fairly open discussion. CCP is reviewing its process for vetting future Fanfest presentations and has also issued a 30-day temporary ban to The Mittani for violation of EVE Online's Terms and Service.
Following a thorough internal review CCP has decided to respond to this clear violation of our Terms of Service and wholly inappropriate use of the Alliance Panel. According to our existing policies, we have issued a 30 day ban from EVE Online to the panel speaker.
