EVE Online's player-run sites need your help

The sci-fi game EVE Online is a title that many players clearly feel passionate about. So much so that 2008 saw a record number of player blogs focused on the game. But beyond the blogging community, there are three standout websites that feature the writing of EVE's players, and pay their writers for those contributions with EVE's virtual currency, Inter Stellar Kredits (ISK):

  • EVE Tribune offers no-holds barred commentary on the game and the player culture surrounding it, with notable coverage of EVE's politics and alliance struggles. EVE Tribune is also the home of Silicon Buddha's Fly Reckless podcast.
While each site has their own approach to covering the game and largely appeals to the same slice of MMO gamers, the dynamic between the three has been decidedly friendly. EVE Tribune is really the pioneer in coverage of the game beyond the official EVE Online site, but EVE-Mag and ENN threw their hats into the ring in 2008 and have drawn in a significant number of readers in the short time they've been running. But if these sites are to continue through 2009, they'll need a little help from their readers -- EVE's players.
As they pay their writers in ISK, making a small donation if you like what you've read from any of these sites is the way to ensure you can keep reading their content. If you've got deep ISK pockets that would certainly help, but even small donations could help keep these sites running strong. While no one likes being solicited (much less as it pertains to internet spaceships), the simple fact of the matter is that if they can't pay their writers what they're worth, these sites won't be able to keep the content flowing as they have been. Massively wishes this trinity of EVE-focused sites another year of excellent content.
