Weekend Mining Op : Success!

Eve Radio News

Last weekend DJ Accy and DJ Yumene spearheaded a massive mining effort designed to rally the Eve Radio and Eve Online community help edge Eve Radio closer to raising the 100 billion ISK required to fund a massive giveaway event tentatively scheduled for early spring.

There were those who said such community spirit was long gone from Eve Radio.

There were those who said it wouldn't raise any real money.

There were those who said it would crash and burn in ganker fire.

They. Were. Wrong.

We are still crunching numbers and waiting for Accy and Yumene to awake from their 24 hours-on-the-go hibernation but through a combination of mass strip mining and listener donations we have managed to raise a minimum of 10 billion ISK from the effort with some estimates putting it in the region of 15 - 20 billion.

Not bad for high sec.

This was mostly due to the fantastic turnout from the Eve Radio community over the event period.

You came in droves throughout the day and for the majority of the 23 hour operation there were 50+ Excavators gnawing through rock like a plague of strip mining locusts. It was so potent, in fact, that at one point the fleet was split to better focus the firepower and do even more ore wrecking in multiple systems.

Despite a couple of minor incidents, the whole event went off without a hitch and this can only be attributed to the organisational skill of Accy and Yumene and the relentless hunger of the Eve Radio community.

Thanks to them - to you - we're a little closer to our 100 billion goal.

An update will be posted once we've crunched all the numbers and have a written summary of the entire event from Accy and Yumene's perspective.

Well done everyone, DJ and listener alike. This has gone a long way to restore a lot of peoples faith in Eve Radio and proven once again that what we do still matters.

Now then ... who's for some big assed fleet missioning?
