I agree that who we center matters. Thanks for the feedback! It helped me to clarify the original message.

Sharmake - Erme is correct. The original comment was edited for clarity.

This is true. My original comment has been edited to clarify my intent (as was later mentioned in a reply). The reference to thanks did more to confuse than to support. My apologies for the confusion.

As for the allegations of large-scale fraud: Yes, you're correct that the situation has evolved several times, hence the numerous rephrases. Though, I am currently uncertain regarding whether fraud actually occurred. That said, I certainly agree that we should hold people to a high standard of ethical conduct. 

Not wishing ill for people—particularly when harm (whether intentional or unintentional) occurs—is a central component of being compassionate. It is necessary to consider both those who have caused harm and those who are harmed, hence the phrasing of my original comment.

While this is all being sorted and we figure out what is next, I would like to emphasize wishes of wellness and care for the many impacted by this.

Note: The original post was edited to clarify the need for compassion and to remove anything resembling “tribalism,” including a comment of thanks, which may be referenced in comments.

EA DC's November Newsletter is out now!


If you aren’t already subscribed, you can do so here.

It's good to see that this is happening. I hope we will receive some updates after the Summit occurs. 

I agree with Josh's point and would like to expand on it a bit: I have noticed this same issue with other EA events - applications/admissions do not leave enough time for visa processing for people in many countries. I suspect some who would otherwise attend might be prevented from doing so for visa reasons alone, given the short notice.

Good luck and enjoy!

Hi, Jordan! 

The FAQ page for EA Globals is a good starting point, as is the EAGx Information page. These would likely be helpful in drafting questions based on what you/others believe to be missing.

If your questions don't end up being answered here, I imagine the EA Global team has more information they can share directly via email.

It is exciting that the team is expanding to do even more good.  

Thank you all for the work you have done and will continue to do!
