Following the Alliance Panel at Fanfest 2012, an incident was broadcast live on air by a panelist during the Q&A which broke the EVE Online EULA/TOS. The panelist was a member of the CSM who has subsequently resigned from CSM6 and, as a result, will resign his seat on CSM7. GM Salmon, VP of Customer Relations, provides more detail in this blog.

Update: CCP Xhagen has posted some answers to common questions in the thread.

The entire chain of events that have lead to this action are extremely regrettable and sad.

Alex was an extremely talented and energetic member of CSM6, and his absence will be keenly felt during CSM7. I am deeply saddened that CCP felt they had no choice but to take this action.

This unprecedented situation raises significant questions -- such as representation and disenfranchisement -- that CSM6 will be discussing with CCP and with the new members of CSM7 over the next few days. I think I can speak for everyone on CSM when I ask for your patience while we work through these issues.

I disagree with this decision, and am working hard with CCP to make sure the 10,058 voters that voted for Alex have their voice heard.

More to come, just wanted to make sure I had a spot on the first page

This was an unexpected development and we are now working toward resolving both the issue of Mitten's 10k voters and figuring out the process for CSM 7 Chair. Straight

You've disenfranchised 10,058 voters. Good job.

I now exercise my right as the winner of the election with 10,058 votes to decline the office of Chairman.


Unless there's something that's not been said in public, I think you might be jumping to conclusions there. There's a difference between being a CSM member and being the CSM chairman.

10,058 paying customers totally ignored and disenfranchised. Good work, CCP.

This entire situation is regrettable and there was no perfect outcome. I am concerned about the disenfranchisement of voters but trust CSM6 and CCP to sort things as best as possible under the circumstances.

The funny thing is, CCP didnt force Mittens to resign and invalidate the votes.

He did that himself.

CCP, will you also be censuring the moderator who allowed the supposedly EULA breaking activity to pass without comment? How about the employees who broadcast and rebroadcast the pannel without bleeping out the offending bits?

Storm in a tea cup, not a day goes by when I don't hear the words kill yourself in University or online.

Sperging publords making a massive shitstorm over literally nothing have ruined the CSM, and potentially ruined the game.

Literally a few people have managed to kick up enough **** to get a bunch of idiots bandwagoning.

Thanks guys.
