Some encouraging words from Marc Scaurus on mittani.com!

I sure hope I'm as successful at being elected as everyone thinks I'm going to be. P

Well here is hoping.

It would be nice if extremely unlikely that all 5 WH candidates get elected.

Sorry had to comment, your thread looked like it needed someone else to speak Lol

Jita Park is quieter this year than it has been in any other election than I can remember.

There is about the normal amount on GD, so hopefully CSM 7 have not driven too many people away.

Any spelling, grammatical and punctuation errors are because frankly, I don't care!!

Thanks for the input, mate. I wrote you off as a troll originally, but it seems I was happily mistaken. Lol

Hi there,

Part of your platform is communication. What makes you more suited to gain communication votes than Ripard Teg, the other candidate who is seriously running with communication as one of his selling points?

How can you prove that you will effectively communicate? Do you have a blog with evidence of communication in the past? I see you're planning to start a blog at Talocan United; have you any experience of writing blogs in the past? Are you aware of how much time every day you need to spend writing in order to satisfy your readers? Are you prepared to do that? Are you prepared to do that and pull your weight in CSM meetings, CSM minutes, CSM documents, forum posting, appearances on podcasts and actually playing the game to keep up with current mechanics and opinions?

I'd like to hear more about how you intend to communicate please, as well as what you intend to communicate. Proof that you're capable of it would also be nice - and linking a corp website that 'conveys lots of information' isn't going to impress anyone.



Which blog post do you most agree with? This one or this one? Why?



No, under this assumption the only individuals who would have the time to run for CSM would be unemployed or retired teenagers / Old Age pensioners. Running a simple blog is not difficult work, as a software engineer I would be happy to inform you that unless you are a PR operative, it requires less than an hour a day. Effective blogs need only post once a day.

Before the polls close

How do you feel about the new STV voting system?

Do you understand it?

How do you feel about fact we can only identify 2 members of CSM7 who supported it?

Do you want it removed for a better or simpler system, while voting numbers are so low?

And voting is over! I'd like to extend a personal thank-you to everyone who participated. Doubly so if you voted for me. Blink

Sorry I couldn't get to your questions before the polls closed. I'm not a statistician, but I think I understand it well enough. I can explain it to those asking about it in my public or alliance chat, to include how votes are "trickled down" in percentages, rather than full votes.

Every voting system has its pros and cons, but I think there's a lot of potential good from the new system. Besides the simple fact that voters won't feel like their votes are wasted, there are benefits that haven't been mentioned yet. For example, before candidates had to jostle with each other to claim all of the voters' attentions, convincing them to vote for them and only them. Now, candidates benefit from directly networking with each other to get their names on shared ballots. For this election, I have been in close contact with a good number of the candidates, and it's refreshing to see a voting system that encourages cooperation between opponents, rather than simply rivalry.

Obviously, once we have the results of the election and the numbers that went into it (including how many voted), we can make a more informed decision. Because, after all, the only correct voting system is the one that gets your favorite candidate elected, amirite? Blink

In all honestly I was specifically after peoples opinions before they sign an NDA that is described as "The NDA is vague and can be used to swat any of us down pretty much at will. "

Also " Because, after all, the only correct voting system is the one that gets your favorite candidate elected, amirite?" is exactly why wright STV was created by the fish and chip party, so they could argue they deserved an extra person on the senate.

Any spelling, grammatical and punctuation errors are because frankly, I don't care!!

The CSM 8 results have finally been published:

http://community.eveonline.com/community/csm/your-csm

Thank you all for voting and for your support! Even if I didn’t make it this year, I’m thankful for the encouragement I was given along the way.

Wormhole space now has two strong representatives in the form of James Arget and Chitsa Jason. Lend them your support! I’m sure they will do a great job.

I’ll see you next year!
