This week has been a great step up, not only for me, but also for the Aurora Arcology Project! The past two weeks have been very busy, with alot of negotiations, talks & arrangements, but it all payed off!
First important news are the arrangements made with other news-sites.
After talks with the EvE Pandora news site owners, we've been approved as one of the main news sources!
EvE Pandora News offers a wider package of news that include direct visual feeds about ongoing events and more personal corporate information on local events. They also offer a system to assist capsuleer organisations in rewarding their members for performing their duties or helping in a corporate/alliance campaign.
On top of this, I also have been approved as a staff writers of the news site The Coffee Rocks. I had caught the attention of the owner with my Sansha article publications. After some talking & sorting out each others concerns, I'm now part of their writing staff. I'll mainly publish articles explaining the lore & history of Eden on their news site.
The Coffee Rocks is a news site that aims to provide news that is relevant to all capsuleers. As they originated from the capsuleer alliance Brave Newbies Inc, they'll be able to offer alot of self-generated news as they are not afraid into diving into a fight, or other shenanigans!
Now onward to the important news that's directly relevant to the Aurora Arcology Project itself. Recently, a Minmatar capsuleer contacted me, impressed with the Aurora Project. He explained he ran a similar project but had landed on the background. As he was about to move to nullsec, he wanted to make sure that all the people he rescued would find a good shelter somewhere else.
After explaining to him the various support programs & the way the Aurora Project aids refugees & others, he approved the people under his custody to be transferred over, to be integrated into society again.
While he insisted on his privacy, declining his name to be published, I still thank him for his trust in our organisation! Over 48.000 people have been transferred over!
This week's census report contains a record number of people, only outdone by last year's census report when over 118.000 minmatar refugees joined us!
This high number was achieved with thanks to several capsuleers, namely Julius Maagnus, Jolnar Kampos & others (mainly the Minmatar capsuleer). Thanks to their contributions, this week sees a large number of immigrants with a wide variety of backgrounds!
