According to CCP Leeloo, it is unfair but not against the rules, and that is a direct quote that I received from her.

Sadly, if CCP says it's a legit way to receive votes and get on the CSM, there is sadly nothing that we can do about it... I disagree with CCP completely on this and I rather gave my votes to someone else, but we can't turn it back now.

It's f*cking sad nonetheless




Typically when someone does a high profile switch in real life, they will volunteer for a re-election in their constitution. This ensures their authority, which is given to them by the electorate, is maintained. I do not think this is mandatory though, however if they did not they would have no authority.

My 2 cents is that corbex was a dumbo if he thinks that after 48h he would switch to a NS alliance from a WH corp and wouldnt get trolled to hell by the same people that voted him for the csm.

And you being a diplo on goonswarm , i know that you will have allot of free time to play the game AND take care of the WH community .

Good luck.

i'm glad corbexx could rise above petty partisan politics and show that it's who you are, not who you're with, that matters for the CSM. he's shown that he was worthy of every vote he received and probably more

The idea that Corbexx can't properly represent wormholers with a [CONDI] ticker is pretty silly. We have our fingers in many pies, including wormspace activities.

If anything, seeing wormholes from a different perspective to the one he has held previously should make him a better CSM.


Come on stop trolling plz.

If Corbexx is in a nullsec corp, his main activity will be nullsec and he can't by definition represent wormhole.

But that's not the point, the issue here is a lot of people voted for him because he was in a respected wormhole alliance. At my scale i have done a lot of lobbying to just make my mates vote for the CSM.

How can i explain to them that Corbexx from NOHO is joining GSF ?

For us NOHO means independance and freedom and GSF means servitude and F1 monkey.

Now, most of them will never vote again for the CSM election, because the candidate can be elected on a platform and switch to another on day 1.

Their conclusion is : CSM election are bullshit because candidate can do anything without any consequences. And i am close to conclude that too.

We could have elected someone else, like Ariete if we have been informed about that. This is not fair at all.


Man, just when I thought we had extracted all possible tears from the CSM elections we get this beauty of a thread.
The hilarious part is the true meta is so much more complicated and deep than anyone except a handful are aware of. Ah well, rage against the machine peasants.

Half true at best. Personally, I thought CSM X work be dominated by null blocs so it would be good to have a wormhole independent. That didn't work out so well, did it? As for the man, Corbexx evidently thought it a good idea to deliberately taunt the people who put him back on the CSM, as well as bring the meta deep into the CSM. So that's not working out too well either.

Mike, I wonder how your core constituents would feel if you chose to join CODE the day after the announcement. You could try the 'man, not ticker' line but I'm not convinced it would work.


True enough. Not that I am about to do any such thing.

One of the main issues of being on the the CSM is that when ever you log in you get bombarded with convos and mails.



Yes, it's almost like people rely on you as a conduit between the player community and the developers. Welcome to being CSM, if you don't like what it brings than don't run.
Certainly interesting timing that you announce this 2 days after your succession into CSM X. Enjoy Null Sec, the only thing the wormhole community can hope for is you burn out and someone who actually wants the position takes your place.

Wait what? You're already aware that CCP allow literal vote-buying, and this is the thing that makes you think "oh my, SO unfair"?

Allow me to explain your conceptual error in three words:
