The elections for the 8th Council of Stellar Management (CSM) end tomorrow April 18th, at 23:59 UTC. Our wonderful community has been buzzing with comments on the CSM as an institution and the actions of CSM7, so we thought it would be nice to hear from CCP itself. Click here to read.

We all pay for subscriptions, and we all deserve a voice.

Many thanks to CCP Dolan for working hard to pull this together in time for the last day of elections, and thanks to all of the CCP staff who contributed their time as well.

Make sure you all get to the polls and vote!

If you need any suggestions you can find my recommendations on my personal blog.

Is it too late to throw a few bribes out to the CSM8 candidates?

Better yet how do we get CCP Dolan to throw out a bunch of NULL SEC blocks ballots due to something like hanging chads?Lol

Thanks to CCP Dolan and all the others who took time to write about how the CSM has affected them in the different departments within CCP.

If you somehow haven't voted already, go do your duty and VOTE!

I don't want to be represented by any of available candidates (and I believe that I'm not the only one) for many reasons: some of them slacked in the past, some represent huge blocs, some just marginal.
But there is no option to let CCP know about low quality of candidates and vote "against all". So I will not vote.

"Representative voice of the community" just can't be truly representative if you don't want to hear all community voices.

It's a lovely devblog, and if it had been released 3 weeks ago, it would probably have had a very positive effect on the election.

With less than 36 hours left until the polls close.... well, it's a lovely devblog.

What does "marginal" mean? Does it mean "not representing a huge bloc"?

This will be an invaluable resource for the future - whenever someone comes with the CSM is useless/does nothing/PR stunt etc. gimmick, it will be possible to bash him over the head with this devblog.

Thanks to all the CCP devs for their time.

No it doesn't mean that. It does mean that there is still random candidates with weak unrealistic programs or marginal behavior .
Voting for neutral candidates (like you) with STV, just because there is no other options left just no good for sane elections.

Just one example about CSM 7 (and 6): for past two years UAxDeath posted absolutely nothing relevant about his CSM work not on EVE-O, nor on ru forum where he advertised his "election program". How can we evaluate his work if he never communicated with players?
Yes we seen cool photos and tweets about crazy russian, about how he poisoned CSM with vodka, about Blue Lagoon trip and so on. But do we really need jesters in CSM? And how can we measure real effectiveness of each CSM member without blurry generic devblogs?

Came here to roll my eyes at CCP and say this. But since you beat me to it in such a fashion you defiantly just secured one of my votes.
