Over Five Hundred Seventy-Seven Billion in Shares Sold

Here's a little piece of news that's sure to make you smile (if you're one of the good guys; scowls for everyone else): We've surpassed 577 billion isk worth of New Order shares sold! That's a milestone I've been looking forward to for a long time.

Ra'shan Demaleon purchased her very first 100 shares of New Order stock, taking us over the 577 billion isk mark. In doing so, she earned a Supreme Protector's Tip of the Hat™. That's how it's done, folks.

As long as I'm writing a post, some housekeeping on share purchase policy: As you may be aware, shareholders can transfer their shares to other EVE players or EVE corporations/alliances. There's a limitation, though. Dr Pumo recently ordered 100 shares to be sent to a CCP character. I have been informed that this is not appropriate gameplay; the same goes for GM and ISD characters. Surprisingly, this is the first time the issue has come up.

Since the New Order is a community of non-sociopaths who believe (with all their hearts) in following the rules, purchases made for CCP/GM/ISD characters are invalid. Other examples of invalid purchases would include those made on behalf of non-existent EVE players, etc.

In the event of an invalid purchase, shares are instead directed into the Permabanned Heroes of the Code account. Since Permabanned Heroes of the Code is a non-corporeal entity, those shares cannot vote or be accessed by EVE players. The account holds over 5.3 billion isk in New Order shares as of this post.

Similarly, shareholders who wish to abandon their shares without identifying a beneficiary will have their shares dumped into the Permabanned Heroes of the Code account. A few months ago, there was a case of an EVE player who disclaimed all present and future purchases made on his behalf--a fellow by the name of Veers Belvar. His shares were likewise automatically redirected to the Permabanned Heroes of the Code.

Hopefully this clears up any confusion.

  1. Thanks James! I am happy to see us handling this awkward and unexpected situation similarly. May the best leader win Highsec!

  2. Oh, and the Heroes Code is now published. I expect all of the AFK carebears who did not show up for the drafting will want to send me some feedback to make it even better.

    2. It's easy to criticize when you do nothing pro-active M

    3. If doing a website is considered pro-active, then i much rather to be giving isk away quietly, besides its a much nicer way to deal with those new order hurts :)

    4. Except you aren't giving any isk away so you're not doing anything

    5. I do love how he just expects people to take his word for it that he's given ever-larger sums of money away, after he said that giving money to anyone is a scam.

    6. It's the equivalent of the red cross saying ha ha you idiots donated to a cause you believe in and we totally used that money to buy equipment and facilities to aid in operations. Bet you feel stupid getting scammed. Still if he can't convince anyone else he can at least convince himself he won.

  3. Wait let me get this straight... If i purchase shares on behalf of Veers Belvar they will go to the Permabanned Heroes of the Code?

    What if I buy some shares for a Veers alt? Do those automatically go to Permabanned Heroes of the Code or do i need to specify weather the Veers alt in question is real or fake?

    1. Just buy Heroes shares. You can buy as many as you want in the name of Veers Belvar and they will be denoted as gifts until he buys at least 1 share on his own.

      Delete
    2. You know Held, you could just buy New Order shares instead since you comment on here more than your own blog...

    3. I'm a good sport, I'd happily match James' investment in Heroes with new Order shares.

  4. In that case i request that the 11,000 shares i convinced ming to buy be transfered to Permabanned Heroes of the Code. This is for mings benifit, so that he might want to purchase more shares (with my convincing of course).

    1. Man, I really got you with that one, didn't I?
      You really can't stand to see my smiling face sitting up there every time you come to this website. Looking at me, basking in the light of my share purchase.

      If you wanted, you could always purchase your own shares and transfer them to the Permabanned Heroes of the Code. Until then, keep your grubby paws off mine.

      Love, Ming

    2. In order to con someone you have to inspire confidence in someone M and since you don't inspire any it's hard to see how you can convince anyone that you conned Ming.

    3. Read up on the past stories on this very site. Ming was reluctant to buy any shares pointing out how simply commenting on these forums is enough to be an 'agent of the new order'. I simply used his vanity against him and dared him to buy shares. He went well beyond the 1,000 shares i dared him (did i mention he is vain), and got 11,000. If i did not challenge him as i did, he still would not have any shares to date, thus i forced him into buying something he did not want to. I understand some of code have a hard time understanding these things, and hopefully i clarified it for you.

      P.S. in 2 weeks ming wont be in the top corner like he keeps bragging about. I wonder if I can use his vanity to make him waste more isk on more fake shares....stay tuned to find out!

    4. Also, i invented the nets, i am rich and powerful in real life, i told steve jobs to start Apple, i know important people, i can go on and on about the same crap that i think i did until it becomes real (in my own weak mind), i fap everyday at the thought of big burly men naked. I dont live with my mom, she lives with me.
      Most important: i think that i am clever and my opinion matters, no matter how foolish i look after weeks of spouting the same drivel.

    5. I am scared to use my ingame name. Unlike the CODE folks that are ashamed of nothing, i am too weak to stand behind my opinion.

    6. To be fair, there's a fine line between being brave and being careless. When your job description involves getting CONCORDed as a matter of course, it's a forgone conclusion that you don't value your in game safety.

      I'm not speaking specifically of 'M' when I say this, but plenty of dissenters who were in the right did well not to identify themselves to make it easy for the then in power authority to hunt them down, and it's pretty standard history for industrialists to get the bad end of the stick in a military confrontation, even with a standing allied army present.

      Ultimately I think it's audacity and a lack of respect for people who would have extended it to him that cost him his credibility, rather than that he chooses to remain anonymous.

    8. GETTING REAL TIRED OF YOUR SHIT, FAKE M'S! All the M's in this conversation are not me. You can tell they're not me because they're not talking about how awesome I am for "scamming" Ming into donating money to a cause he supports, which totally showed him, somehow. Since that is literally the only thing I ever talk about (and the proudest moment of my life), you can tell they're fake M's.

      Get it together, fake M's. I really only ever talk about that one thing, so if you're talking about anything else, it'll be obvious you're fake.

      Oh, oh! And about how I totally gave money to miners that one time. Don't ask me which miners, or how much, or for any kind of proof, because I didn't really do it obviously. But no, I totally did, really you guys.

      *touches the fake M's inappopriately*

    9. Wow, so many butt hurt code members upset about me. Guess im doing something right if they are all upset. Quite flattering that they try to copy me :)

      -=M=-

    10. Well, technically, since you're trying to copy me- in that your "line" is that you've been "silently" giving "billions" of unverifiable isk to carebears...
      That means that the clones are technically copying me.

      Which is awesome. I wish everybody would give 11 billion isk to the New Order. They'd get a chance to shine at the top of the donor list too.

      I guess what I mean to say, is that the New Order wins again. And you, M, seem like you're losing it again. Which is the way it's always been, and the way it will be from here on out.

      Love,
      Ming

    11. copy you? are you saying you really do touch kids?

    12. Kiss me, Ming! It's all I've ever wanted!

  6. Guys, we're going have to shut this all down, a miner named Worrix Wolf has declared he's going to bring down the new order by bumping every single miner who has a permit for 'supporting terrorism'. I suggested if he's great at bumping miners he may wish to join us but he says we'll be finished as soon as he can hack our database andget a list of all permitted miners. Let's shut it up guts, it's over.

    3. Which one of you is the Veers alt and which one is the fake Veers?

  8. Fake Veers is the one with the weaker constitution, as he/she keeps "getting tired" of some or other constantly.

  9. I just got kicked from the AG channel because of this post. Typical carebears, all about championing free speech & free gameplay & stuff until they disagree with you....
