CSM Elections are once again upon us, and as with the past few years, I will be recommending candidates for you all to vote for.

 

Firstly though I'll answer the obvious question of what is the CSM and why should I care?  To answer the first half, I'll leave it to CCP 

 

The Council of Stellar Management (CSM) is a player-elected council who represent the views of the members of the EVE Online community to CCP. To quote part of the CSM white paper summary:

 
The purpose of the CSM is to represent society interests to CCP. This requires active engagement with the player community to master EVE issue awareness, understanding, and evaluation in the context of the greatest good for the greater player base.

 

 
 

As to why you should care? You play this game dont you? You invest a considerable amount of time and energy into it? Well so do the devs, and the csm is in ways able to ensure that energy is directed in ways that are beneficial to the game and the community.

 

So you get it? Its important to have proper representation from the community on the CSM, especially now that the game see's 10 to 12 updates per year.  And this the candidate field is HUGE, like MINDBOGGLINGLY so. See the CCP Candidate page here, or this spreadsheet.

 

 

Now, the CSM is elected using an STV voting system (someone else can try and explain that) but basically instead of voting for 1 candidate, you can select up to 14 candidates from the field. And yes, with a list of 75 to chose from, many of whom have no published platform, interviews or anything, it can be bloody well hard. This is where I come in. Like many other groups and community notables in EVE, I am providing a break down of the candidates I think you SHOULD list on your ballots. Along with a suggested order for listing them. 

 

VOTE HERE

 

Spoiler

 

How to list these pilots on your ballot.

 

VOTE HERE

(Then Drag and Drop the Candidates into the numbered slots. More slots will appear as you do so)

 

Obviously I have listed more than 14 candidates above. This is to give you the opportunity to look into them yourselves and order as you feel best suits your own interests. However if you do simply want to exercise your rights as players, then get back to exploding one another, here are the 14 I feel will be the best bang for your buck.

 

  1. Khador Vess
  2. Jayne Fillon
  3. Bam Stroker
  4. Psianh Auvyander
  5. Sugar Kyle
  6. Steve Ronuken
  7. Gorski Car
  8. Corbexx
  9. Xander Phoena
  10. Cagali Cagali
  11. Corebloodbrothers
  12. Sion Kumitomo
  13. Manfred Sideous
  14. Endie

Candidates 8 - 14 feel free to mix it up, or out right change them if you wish.  After all several of them will get massive bloc support from the CFC, HERO, PL etc, whatever you do though remember Khador is your number ONE!!!

Cheers for the overview Mang. Sifting through 70+ different views and trying to differentiate the bads to the not so bads was a daunting prospect indeed!

My second VOTE HERE link is a precompleted search for the candidates I suggest.  All one needs to do is then drag them into the numbered slots at the top of the page. More slots appear as they get filled.

 

This is the link for those interested: http://tinyurl.com/rvbcsmx

The thing I find amazing is how many candidates wrote paragraphs describing their positions, but couldn't be bothered checking their grammar/spelling before submitting them. That's a great way of showing how much diligence you intend to bring to the position.

People who whine about not being trusted are either:<br />1) Operatives for the Enemy<br />2) Totally clueless about concepts like OPSEC and need-to-know<br />3) Dangerously neurotic and/or immature<br />and are consequently not to be trusted.
