If Just One Resists, It’s All Worth It

I’ll start this post off by saying this; I’m fully aware people are spitting on our name, using chat logs against us, and even threatening us. We’ve received death threats (in game and out), gank threats, war dec threats, been told we are nothing, we are scum, and we are embarrassing. We’ve been threatened with our past, with our corps, friends, you name it.

But you know what? It’s TOTALLY worth it.

Not counting out of game threats (that neither bumpers OR proveldtariats should EVER use), this action against us is what keeps us going. We hope that with our small actions of resisting, of speaking against some elitists about their actions against more casual Eve players, and of providing miners the tools to resist and resurge, we inspire at least one miner to action.

If even one miner resists, the threats, the slander, and the wars are all worth it.

It seems, though, that a lot more than just one miner is resisting the scam of the bumpers!

While Tolle has been hit hard by the bumpers, a corporation of very industrious miners has worked together to utilize nestling tactics to keep themselves safe. The ice asteroid shown above is surrounded by a number of much larger ice asteroids. The miners positioned themselves in such a way that a bumper trying to hit them would, for the most part, bounce of the invisible walls of the roids, and bounce around like a pin ball away from the miners.

Now I’ve said this once, and I’ll say it again; There is no such thing as a 100% safe way to play.

I know some people wish there were, but Eve isn’t that kind of game. But isn’t that why we play? Casual or not, we’re in Eve because it’s unique. Whether you pew or mine, it’s fun, plain and simple. Just because you decide to play one way, does not mean someone else should get to bully you around. That’s why this movement started. That’s why it continues. Just seeing a group of miners like this work together to allow themselves to play is enough to keep us going.

All around New Eden, casual miners and gamers are stowing their mining lasers, if only for a bit, to grab a gun and join the fight. Ganks, war decs, and a plethora or other resistance is spread across Eve working in so many ways to protect themselves. It’s absolutely amazing to see.

If you have a story of resistance you want to share, send it to us! If you’d like to be Anonymous regarding your actions, that’s perfectly fine too. Send us a screenshot of your work, whatever it is, big or small, and we’ll be happy to share it.

Keep up the fight Proveldtariats. Let them shame us, spit on our name, and shove guns in our faces. We’ll keep on plowing through. Fly Safe and Fly True. o7

We need translators.

We need people who speak the languages from the above mentioned countries to step forward and assist. I am willing and able to translate all posts and tips for miners should we be able to obtain linguistic specialists.

Please e-mail proveldtariat@gmail.com with your translations should you so choose. This is not an order, none can order you all, the Proveldtariat. You are free individuals to make your own choices. This is however, a request, a plea if you will. We need your help, ALL of your help. So I beseech you, my dear comrades; step forward with your brilliant language capabilities, and help us spread the word to all people of all languages. With your help, all will benefit from the collective knowledge of the miner, and soon the missioner, explorer, and all of Eve’s proletariat.

Again, please E-MAIL (not eve-mail) proveldtariat@gmail.com if you are willing to translate the word of the people on this site for the benefit of all.

Bumpgeois Tracking

Greeting Comrades o7

I apologize for not communicating with you all during the weekend through a post. I come to you now with a potential idea for you all. As you all know, the scourge of miner bumping continues. However, we have seen a wane in a few systems bravely resisting these EXTORTIONISTS. For that, you are all to be commended. Your unity has ensured your right to game play survives. 

Now, I come forth with a proposal. We must track these bumpers everywhere they go. To do this, I beseech you all for information. Miners are far spread and in every system. The Proveldtariat have eyes and ears everywhere, literally. Eve’s proletariat know all and see all. Therefore, we shall use that knowledge to the benefit of all miners.

Send en eve-mail to Anslo if and when you see or are harassed by a bumper. Tell him where and when you saw them along with what ship they flew. Give a full name as well. We will take care of the rest.

Our goal is to develop a database of all bumpers. All of them. Where they go, what they fly, what they do. We will publish it for all miners to see. What they choose to do with that information is liberty of choice to them. We look forward to its creative uses.

For now, we await submissions. The database will hopefully be running by this week with your help. Together, we will push back this vile infection in our peaceful homes. We will rise, we will eliminate this threat…and we will promptly return to afk-mining!

Welcome Comrade!

Welcome to the website for all Proveldtariat! This site has been established for the benefit of those miners who have become victims of the Bumpgeois, the bumper extortionists that detract from the joy of the game and free time of the individual.

This website will also help to serve the other members of the Proveldtariat including industrialists, mission runners, traders, etc who may be victimized by the Bumpgeois (bitter vets, predatory PvPers, griefers, etc).

It is high time the workers and bloodlife of Eve have a voice and home of their own outside the vitriol of the Bumpgeois of Eve.

For the Proveldtariat!
