The Council of Stellar Management (CSM) is the player elected body that regularly discusses ideas on behalf of the player base with the developers and plays a significant role as consultant.

Voting for CSM 10 begins February 25th and ends on March 10th, so get ready and don't miss your chance to bring your candidate of choice into office!

But not only should you vote, you also should collect the gift that will be available for every account active when the voting beings: the Council Diplomatic Shuttle!

Read all about the CSM 10 elections and the gift in CCP Leeloo's latest blog In Celebration Of CSM X!

So you can get the shuttle even if you don't vote?

Yes, as long as you have an active account when the voting is open. You will get 10 random things if you vote though.

Would have been better to have it the other way around, trinklets for everyone and only ships for the voters.

We considered, this but after discussion we felt that we'd rather do it this way.

Giving a relatively strong motivation for voting in the form of gifts that have tangible value in game means that people would be given the incentive to vote for no reason other than to get the ship, and would just spam votes even if they weren't interested.

We'd rather use the ship simply to raise awareness of the election, and the CSM in general, and let people educate themselves properly and make their vote count, rather than just spamming votes to get shiny stuff.

We'd rather see educated and reasoned voting, rather than ballot spamming for the sake of getting a reward.

If there is only 1 candidate that I would be willing to vote for and they are knocked out due to low votes or something, your new system will automatically send my vote to someone else in the next round of voting that "shares similarities"?

edited Note. It's sad everyone is more concerned about some reward than having a candidate voted into the CSM by this new system that really shouldn't be there.

Your vote will only transfer to candidates you explicitly select. If you were to only select a single candidate and they were to be knocked out, that vote would be discarded.

This is no different to last year.

Despite frustrations voiced by some on the CSM, and previous apathy in the player-base, this NEW piece of in-game outreach shows that CCP clearly continues to place importance on the CSM concept.

Not just one commemorative shuttle, but TEN, tenth anniversary shuttles ;)

Now remember, diplomatic bags and persons are not subject to search while in transit, and should be allowed to pass through all front-line checkpoints.

With 60+ candidates, reasoned and educated vote should not be none of your worries... Lol

Please add a voting option to disband the CSM all together, or at least a no vote option so I can still vote to get free stuff but not contribute to this ridiculousness.

Pretty cool! Thanks for the ships!

I never used to care about voting, but the longer I play, the more I see it as necessary and pretty relevant. From what I see, the CSM's are working (some more than others!) I will let you feel self-guilt over who I mean there. :)

I am wondering sometimes what is the interest of such a message.
CCP proposes a CSM. You won't find this anywhere else.
CSM gives time.
CCP offers some nice presents for this.

And i read this type of message.
Only to break, only to destroy.

If your are not interested in this vote, so why are you writing on this thread ?

Sorry Falcon/Leloo/Phantom to get nervous like this on your thread but sometimes it's really too much.

WE WILL VOTE. Don't be afraid.
And not only for your presents.

Best regards.

Free stuff \o/

I approve of the way this is being rolled out, and I have stacks of accounts. Seems a bit greedy to farm them for free stuff and I can't really be arsed logging into account management to do it anyway. Please just put them in the redeem screen ingame, and cap people to stop farming rather than annoying everyone by making us do it via account management.

For the 'trinkets' PLEASE make one of them a spoon. Another a wizard hat. Or a golden monocle. Jar of mayonnaise/peanut butter. A pair of jeans with the price tag on. All of these could be wearable, too. For, uhr, immersion.

Let me try to understand.

Eit her the CSM is effective or useless.

If useless then do not vote, get the bpc. No skin off your nose and we get to play politics. Or do vote secure in the knowledge that it makes no difference. You still get the bpc.

But what if the CSM are not useless? Then you have to choose whether to vote or not. Don't vote and others get to choose how CCP will be advised. Maybe other people will choose well, maybe not. Or you vote and are part of the process. You still get the bpc and a say in what happens.

Vote or don't, you get something.

Whether you participate or even believe that CSM has substance does not change the fact that CCP is on record as supporting our efforts. They get the final say on this.
