Alright gents and ladies I was hoping I wouldn't have to do this but I would like to get this rolling before its too late.

I invite everyone that wishes to run for CSM8 to post in here. We need to create a list of candidates to have ready incase CCP changes the voting system, or have a list to run primaries off of so we can get representation through the current system.

I will try to maintain this list updated and Down The Pipe will do debates which I will be the hosts asking questions you guys want to be asked.

You dont have to start a thread for you candidacy (like Cipreh has) you can just post a reply in here. Obviously make it a proper announcement as I will be linking those for people to read.

UPDATE: Some update made about what we are looking to get out of this thread

List of announced candidates:
Cipreh

Nathan Jameson

James Arget

Night Beagle

Thanks for reading,

I am working on it, but if you read the minutes, CCP *may* be changing the voting system which would make a primary unneeded. I am trying to get confirmation from them, which should be this week (hopefully) that the changes will happen. If not, I am planning on running a primary.


FYI

I'm all for someone getting the ball rolling on this as long as people aren't stepping on each other to be the one to do it.

I don't think it's fair to expect all candidates to be willing to be interviewed on a podcast. Instead, you should ask all candidates to answer a standard list of question and submit a personal statement (so people know what they stand for) in this thread. Then you should update your initial post with links to all the candidates "election posts".

If any candidate doesnt wish to participate in an interview I cant force them, its something we offer to do and think(In our humble opinion) any serious candidate should take advantage of. Its just another way for them to talk to the community and show their involvement.

Oh i think the interviews are a good idea but only later on in the process. I would suggest saving the interviews until we have a short list of wormhole candidates.

I mean what if we get 20 candidates that all want to be on your podcast, are you going to interview all 20 who might be saying similar things?

Well It would mean a hell of a lot more work, and we would all have to listen to all the podcast to get a fair and vaild hue about every person, then there's the primary itself ( dont know whats going on with that just now )

But as Rek said before, getting a set of standard questions & so other things.

you could ask:

  • Why are you running?
  • What do you want from the CSM?
  • Whats your credentails?
  • Whats the thing at the top of your agenda, were you to be put forth as our choice?

  • Stuff along those lines Cool

    These are all valid concernes. Candidates should mainly rely on written statements. And if anyone want to know more they can listen to the interview. As far as 20 candidates, yea I'll do the work because I think its worth it its also why they will be short 15 minute pieces. And yes there will be a standard list of questions.

    I support this plan.

    Please even if you are not ready to announce publicly, at least EVE mail me. I know a lot of people were considering running, please just drop me a quick note if you are still planning on running.

    Why do I get the feeling were going to end up with another guy from a large alliance who completely ignores anything that isn't c6 related?

    Anyone feel like putting their hand up to run for the rest of wormhole space, so you can get 12 votes and feel like **** afterwards?

    Bah! I hate popularity contests.

    Two possible responses:

    1. Can I swap my wife for a slab of beer?
    2. What's controversial about those?

    WH alliances are not large enough that any one alliance could push their candidate like goons could with Mittani (who got also one of my four votes :p). And there's plenty of rivalry between the larger alliances.

    If someone from a small wh corp would run and present a sensible platform and prove that he/she is dedicated and competent, I'm pretty sure he'd have a good shot at winning the nomination and a CSM seat.

    Gents lets keep this thread constructive. WH corps\allliances need to push a candidate that is knowledgeable and cares for WH space and it shouldn't matter what corp he is from.

    I will be running for CSM8 this year. I have been waiting to publish my platform based on whether we will have wormhole primaries or not (still waiting on word from CCP). However, I can at least state my intentions in this post.

    As the fundamental purpose of the Council of Stellar Management is communication between the player base and CCP, I will not be running a platform based on broad, sweeping changes to any particular element of EVE. (Well, except maybe POS's, but this is nothing new.) I will instead be focusing on two elements that are important to me.

    First is communication, as it was the entire reason the CSM was formed. Communication of one kind or another has always been vital to me (and is, in fact, one of my IRL degrees). To give an example, our alliance's website conveys a large quantity of information that has helped many incoming pilots adjust to wormhole space. And wormhole space can always use more pilots. No candidate can be a strong candidate if he forgets his ultimate priority.

    Second is a respect for diversity, something that my alliance has respected since the very start. We do not all roll in large deadspace-fit T3 gangs (although some do). Some of us like to camp systems in stealth bombers; some like to farm PI; some like to manufacture and research; some of us even like to *shudder* mine (which I have done my own fair share of). Sometimes we blob, when we feel the situation warrants it. In most cases, however, our fleets are perhaps a dozen, if not far fewer. We hunt wormhole space, low-sec, and null. We live in systems ranging from C1's and C2's to higher C5's. We are an alliance founded on diversity and mutual respect for the playstyles of others, and we have shown more than one corp the door that has breached this sacred trust.

    While any specific change to EVE's mechanics will always advantage one group over another, I believe it is my job to represent this mindset...to promote a wide variety of improvements that ultimately remembers everyone, from the richest, most devoted C6 pilots to those who can only sign in on weekends to run their PI. Because in the end, they all pay for their subscription.

    I appreciate your consideration for me as your candidate for CSM8. Win or lose, I firmly believe it is important for me to run.

    You may be interested to know, that there is a plan to have some kind of Primaries if the voting system is not changed by CCP.

    The idea is to have a single (or two, but unlikely) candidate from WH community. Having a lot of candidates can bring none to CSM. More details are to come the next week, since ATM we are waiting for CCP to change (or not) the mechanic.

    To my knowledge most of the candidates from big alliances are aware of this idea, that was simultaneously proposed by several people, Two Step including.

    PS. I'm not going to be a candidate, just passing by ))

    Gonna start playing EVE again? I hear your RL is busy, nothing against that... we just need a CSM that is active in the game that he's representing.
