Did I get your attention? :)
Good!

Now there is something Eve is lacking. It is something only YOU can correct. It is....

a CSM member!!!



With the next elections looming over the horizon already (well, in two or so months, IIRC) I have been giving a tought about past representatives and - more importantly - why I did not vote for anyone so far.

Franky, I feel that not a single one would actually "represent" me; it is either some Null-Sec alliance candidate or another who has the backing of his Null-Sec Alliance or he has not really any realistic chance to get elected.
Take a look at the current board: http://community.eve...blog&nbid=28529
I see LOTS of Null-Sec members and only two Hi-Sec representatives, with one of them a Roid-Hugger.... clearly, Hi-Sec is more than that.

This is why I believe an RvB member is NEEDED to stand up now. Hi-Sec is often accused of being Carebear-Land fit only for AFK Miners and Mission-Runners with all the PvP going on in Low- and Null-Sec which simply is not true. Now is the time to prove them otherwise.


How to get elected:
RvB on a whole has about 6000 members, has an Eve-wide notoriety AND has a very good reputation; it would probably pose NO DIFFICULTY whatever to get the required 1500 votes for a seat.

Whom to elect:
Who cares? Make a Management FFA with the winner the candidate. Or throw a coin.
Just as long as we get someone to vote for. B)


Well, that´s my 2 cents, discuss/flame on! :P



Edit: Title changed since general opinion is pretty clear about who should actually be the lucky one....

I've always been under the (maybe mistaken) impression that Mangala is in posession of a life. Ideally, we'd need someone that has no life, and very little platform for an actual basis to run.

Maybe a shubbery.

Do we know anyone who has those qualifications?

The funny part is that Mang would actually get elected. Between RvB/ganked/the fail-heap crowd he'd get enough votes. With a coordinated voting campaing we could probably get anyone elected actually but do we really want to get involved in that sort of srs bznss political stuff? I personally wouldnt mind a couple free trips to iceland a year, but that's the only draw :D

(I would seriously vote for Mangala, though, if it came to it.)


(This is not a way to suck up for free stuff from him, at all, either. Seriously.)

ps. i would totally vote for mang if it came to it though. he is pretty much the space captain of my heart <3

pps. we may have 6000 members, but i would say we only have 1000, tops, that have logged on in the past month :/ so many inactives...

This but really if it was public who RvB was pushing for we would get a lot of support from all the randoms in eve.

Id vote for mang but not if he didn't want to. Rather have a TOPFLEETCOMMANDERMANGLALALA around than a burnt out one in iceland.
