Third worst election in terms of participation.

Is this something to worry about?

It's not a primary concern in itself but it is a clear indicator that we can (and in my mind need to) raise more interest for the CSM.

There's still a lot of interest in the CSM project and there was an abundance of good candidates to pick from so in that regard we have a strong base to build on as I see it.

When did it change from top 2 to top 4 were perma-seats? I thought only two were announced at fanfest.

It was talked about last year, and made it into the revised white paper. Just lost with the switchover.

Woo! CSM XI!

The very low turnout is rather disappointing, and I believe it is the cause of the overwhelming number of 0.0 bloc candidates on the council (3 goons, 4 pl, and all but one I can identify as 0.0 pilots) which makes me worry for the representation of other gameplay areas by the CSM.

I would like to know what CCP plans to do the coming year (not just during the election) to raise the profile of the CSM with the non-bloc playerbase, as the messaging this election was woefully lacking.

Now taking bets on how long Xenuria stays on, 10 : 1 pay off for closest guesser.

Send me your isk to Kismeteer with a date, and if you want a time, closest to actual answer wins.

I think the awareness among players is definitely an issue. Voter engagement is something that needs to be worked on

The White Paper states four. Announcing two at Fanfest was our mistake :)

There was definitely less push from our end and it was partly because the ownership transfer of the project caused delays and dropped balls that couldn't be recovered in time. Things like launcher graphics and Social media banners weren't produced and with Fanfest drawing closer there wasn't any room to scramble.

That is something we'll have ready in time for the next election.

Raising awareness of the CSM's work is then something we'll work on throughout the term with the CSM.

What if people didn't vote because they think it's the best way to show you they don't think the CSM represent them anyway?

That's a perfectly valid stance. Hopefully we can change those people's minds over the course of this term.

So, not even the amount of people online at any given day could be arsed to vote.
I think the boycott message is pretty clear here.
When can we expect the announcement of abolishment of CFCSM?

"What if people didn't vote because they think it's the best way to show you they don't think the CSM represent them anyway?" That might be part of it, but also it seems like the CSM is ineffective. If CCP (or a head decision maker at CCP) wants something that the players are strongly objecting to across the board.... the CSM doesn't seem to be active at that time. The CSM often doesn't seem to be a good voice when a good voice would really count.

But my view is that the CSM would be dismissed outright if they did take the players' side during a mass objection to a change. No reasons given, just a shut door.

Or perhaps a change in the level of effectiveness allowed to the CSM.

I disagree. CFCSM is corrupt at the core, more power (whatever you name it) is just more corruption. Abolishment is the answer.

I voted but am discouraged from doing it in the future as _none_ of my candidates made it. Block voting is killing the election but I don't have any idea what to do about it :-(
