I'm sorry to do this to you T but my question is;
as a real life business owner - would you employ a self confessed EVE addict?
If so, can I have a job

Indeed, an account must have been subscribed for at least 30 days in order to cast a ballot. Since it is less than 30 days until the last day of voting, newly reactivated accounts won't be able to vote.

All the more reason why it's important to drum up support for your preferred candidate by getting your friends educated and primed to vote. Elections are decided by voters who take the time to get involved.

Yes, but I'd set our internal network to block EVE, the forums, Scrapheap, the Forum That Must Not Be Named, Facebook, Google+, Twitter and Reddit (just to name a few).

Trebor, i seriously hope you get your hands on the reigns this year.

It needs your resolve and wisdom to bring greater credibility and purpose for the whole of EvE back into the CSM.

As such even with any humility you might consider as a result, I hope you get the chair position for CSM7.

I'm going to give my esteemed colleague's thread a bump because I 110% agree with this post. The more people that vote, the better chance you have of hearing your voice heard and not being represented by a ‘bloc’ candidate. Research everyone, ask them questions and cast your vote according to who you think can get the job done most effectively, not just who you think is funny or ‘edgy. Blink


Totally agree with Seleene here. Now please excuse me, I have to go give him a bump in his thread.

Oh, the chair is not at all important to me. If I get elected chair, I'll offer to sell it to Mittens for 1T ISK and use it to reimburse the poor ganked ice miners.

Cash in advance, of course.

Just make sure you don't reimburse the 2/3rds of the miners who were actually bots, brosef. Would that be 1T isk on top of your usual renumeration for services rendered or can we just make up the difference?

Also, all pubbies on the fence about voting for this great man, know this: Goonswarm Loves Trebor, he would be our candidate of choice if The Mittani wasn't running. I for one back him to the hilt.

I'll be Voting for Seleene, Two Step and of course, Trebor, this year.

All 3 have done sterling work on CSM6. Please keep up the good work guys

Do you see any merit in retaining the services of an outside negotiator, not to act as chair but to independently record the proceedings and produce raw copy for CSM use and edited minutes for public consumption?

If so, what would be the fairest way to fund that work?

A very lonely thread.... I wrote you something so the thread would bump to the top (of a total 3 non-sticky) thread.

At one point, a professional moderator chaired the CSM meetings, although this was phased out during CSM 5 (he felt he was not needed anymore). However, he ran the meetings, he did not record the results.

Providing better recording and transcription would be nice, but as always there is a time/effort/cost tradeoff. CCP can devote only so much money to CSM, and CSM delegates (being volunteers) can devote only so much time.

For a variety of reasons, the burden of transcribing and editing the minutes has usually fallen on the backs of a subset of the CSM (plus CCP Xhagen and CCP Diagoras, who work very hard; give them hugs at FanFest). It would be nice to wave a magic wand and get every word in the summit sessions professionally transcribed and attributed, but I don't see it happening anytime soon, especially given the budget cutbacks CCP has had to endure recently.

Trebor did a ton of work the entire year and was actively involved in doing all the unfun stuff that make things actually happen. He really impressed me with his work ethic and focus on issues important to him and frankly you could do a lot worse than sending him back to Iceland.

Good luck on being a member or CSM 7, you have my 2 votes, but in all honesty i hope you don't get chair, because the real work happens in the trenches, not at the head of the table.

That and if the Mittani did pay you the 1 trillion isk, i would hate to see you have to waste any effort to paying out, I'd rather you were focused on FiS.

Considering how vehemently bad Mittani was calling you out during the last elections (for CSM6), and that his tone changed pretty drastically after working alongside you, I can only surmise that you do good work and put in lots of effort.

The rest of the CSM6 crew are all filing in to put in good words in your favor (with the exception of D3, but he never went to CSM summits, so who cares what he says), which speaks volumes to your ability to bridge divides and find common grounds to work on. Solid team player, and a good politician to boot. I was wrong about you :)

Not that it means anything, but +1 from me. If I had another vote, you'd totally get it.

I'll apply myself with the same energy whether I come in 1st... or 14th.

I would say that the CSM does make sacrifices. Having to put up with certain narcissistic individuals for the good of EvE.

CCP should make IRL medals for each completed CSM term, imho. Blink

Oh, I rarely take anything people say in forums at face value. Even if Alex thought I was the best thing since sliced bread during the last elections, he probably would have "unleashed the goons" on me; it was a sound tactical move on a variety of levels. I wasn't butthurt in the least; I appreciated the free PR.

Similarly, as soon as CSM6 started operations, Alex and the other new delegates rapidly realized what previous CSM members had been saying was in fact true. They all quickly pivoted to accommodate the new "ground truth" and applied their particular talents in the way that was most useful to the team.

Alex, for example, is a brilliant verbal communicator, so he was the obvious choice as our spokesman. He could have come in 9th and still taken on that role, because he's obviously the best man for that job.

I'm a good writer and editor, so I did a lot of work refining the messaging.

Seleene made many contributions, not the least of which was his intimate knowledge of CCP and the people there. Two step was a bundle of energy, taking on a lot of tasks. The deep knowledge of guys like Meissa, Prom and others was invaluable. And so on, and so on.

You can still vote for me. I won't tell Alex -- promise!
