Hello pilots,

I’m here today to bring some unfortunate news to you. Our CSM9 representative, Matias Otero, has decided to resign from his CSM duties due to personal reasons. He has informed CCP of his decision to do so, and while we are of course sad to see him go, we respect the fact that real life issues must of course take priority.

However, every end is just a new beginning!

After internal discussion and talks with the rest of the CSM, we have decided that we should not have an empty chair for the rest of the CSM9 term! We have agreed that with the new release cadence it will not be difficult for the new member to catch up on things.

As such, we have picked the 15th member from the list (the next highest number of votes from the CSM9 elections) to take Matias’ chair.

So, please welcome our new CSM9 representative - Asayanami Dei. He will join the team as soon as all paperwork is sorted, but we hope to have him with us for the CSM9 Summer Summit.

If you have any questions regarding this or any comments, please feel free to post in this thread.

Very excited to see what Asayanami brings to the table and that Corbexx has a new tag partner. Sorry to see Matias go but he clearly didn't have the time/energy for CSM.

As we have seen with Matias (and others in the past) sometimes the life of a delegate just excludes them from participating fully in the CSM process.

Replacing them with the first runner up is an excellent way to encourage future CSM candidates to up their game in the elections, and work hard when awarded a seat, which can only lead to a better CSM for you all.

I certainly am looking forward to welcoming Asayanami to this CSM.

Farewell and welcome, in that order respectively.

For those of you who monitor the CSM doings, YES this is a new precedent.

Confirming RL can be a PITA with regards to CSM duties. Happy that Matias was able to come to the decision on his own and free up the chair for someone able to contribute a bit more.

I'm pleased to hear Matias took the initiative to resign instead of letting a seat go to waste. Welcome Asayanami!

Did he jump or was he pushed?

He was barely engaged with the election process, I can imagine he was at best an absentee member, which can't have gone down well with everyone doing all the work.

I'm glad that he's realised its a serious position and I hope his replacement performs well.

Good call Matias & the rest of CSM9; Congratz Asayanami!

Can you elaborate on that? Since we have an STV system, all candidates that got in the CSM have the same votes and those who did not have zero (.. left, after elimination etc).
Did you run the STV process again without him to come up with Asayanami?
Please don't take this as tinfoil or so :) As someone who's interested in the CSM process I'm mostly just curious how you determined the successor.


Oh, and a bit off topic but a nitpick of mine:
CCP Leeloo wrote:

While I would even argue that player actions are part of "real life" (because the players are real) and try to avoid the term, I have come to tolerate it.. but isn't the CSM a customer focus group and shareholder of a gaming company? How is that not "real life"?
I do get the meaning, and of course everyone has a different priorisation (like e.g. family>some friends>job>other friends>chessclub chairmanship). But the term "real life" has this connotation that everything else MUST be less important, because it isn't REAL.
I call shenanigans.
E.g. Eve is clearly more important to me than people dying in Congo, as I spent x time and y money on the former and pretty much 0 time&money on the later. And it's not "just" a game, it's a part-time I enjoy, a community I am part of and an anchor of friendships&contacts.
And for some, spending considerable time on the CSM very likely takes priority over some other "real life" things. Or plain "other things". Those priorities change of course, as everything in life can change. So no reason to critize Matias, but also no reason to diminish the relevance EVE or the CSM in general by stamping it "not real".
/ rant over I guess.. sorry!

Tinfoil is appropriate. However Asayanami was the last candiate to be excluded, my calculations said by 80 votes.

At the last round of cuttoff:
Mangala Solaris has 1550 votes
Major JSilva has 1474 votes
Asayanami Deihas has 1395 votes


There were 2 candidates left to fill and Asayanami was cut.

For the truly voting tragic, I wrote up about this at http://foo-eve.blogspot.com.au/2014/05/csm-9-election-review-of-vote.html
