CSM7 still had too many Null sec players to be representative of the game.

But it is a lot more representative than what we have now.

I mean it is very representative of the voters, but almost the opposite of representing the player base as a whole.

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

I read it. It didn't answer why the CSM somehow became even more balanced despite this obvious danger of "more null-sec alliances copying the Goons", which is an especially stupid statement in the wake of this election data proving that a null bloc isn't necessarily any better organized (HBC) or motivated (N3) than anyone else in the game. Hell, in HBC's case it turned out to be even worse.

Overall, STV did splendidly the first time. Very much looking forward to how it works out for CSM9, when more people get how it works and maybe more people vote.

Lowsec/FW won't repeat this years LACK of participation. That's a "new" bloc.

I also predict a carebear/high-sec bloc/party for the next CSM election that'll get 2+ seats - basically new voters (not even Mike Azariah really represents them, although he comes closest). Not that I like that too much, but its probably appropriate.

And more voters - I guess - will shuffle their bloc ballots a bit on personal preference (which isn't that bad for the bloc in question, as long as it's mostly its candidates in front).


I agree that this time around was a learning experience for everybody and I know some folks are already making plans for how to 'do better' next time.

Good.

That high-sec might actually get organized and form their own block, unlikely but good as well.

I am finding it funny that I keep being the dark horse who proves things didn't work as planned in the election because you cannot figure out who the hell voted for me. I lack a bloc yet I got enough to get elected.

Hard to imagine that maybe . . . . juuuuust maybe I managed to convince enough of all the blocs that I was a decent kind of guy without a political axe to grind? That maybe having such a guy on the council might be a good thing to have? Nah. That goes against all the back room plans and mathematical models that a normal guy could manage such a thing without massive backing.

Oh wait . . . you can buy into the ECCE conspiracy, I was part of a secret organization of non bloc folks that could amass all the votes . . . .from whom? The high-sec voters who reportedly didn't take part?

Bah, what does it matter?

either . . .

a) the CSM has no power so who cares, we didn't want those seats anyways
b) what difference can one guy make? our boys will just relegate him to the corner where he can be properly ignored
or
c) great! way to go, Mike. Don't tell my alliance but I voted for you, too

It's late . . . I have a lot of reading to do to catch up on what has happened in the past so I can be best informed about where we are going next. Run the numbers, make hats out of tinfoil, whatever.

I have work to do

Well said Mike. There's very little chance that the ECCE conspiracy supporters would even bother to get the actual facts for themselves. For such, it's a case of "No! It's my way or the highway". That will never change.

Glad to see you in the CSM as well.

1202 "PsychoBitch"
934 "Artctura"
515 "DaeHan Minhyok"

Here's another hypothetical scenario, assigning weights to #1 votes of 50%, #2 votes of 33% rather than equal weighting to #1 and #2 votes:
3506.67 "mynnna" ***ELECTED***
2845.5 "Ripard Teg" ***ELECTED***

517.833 "PsychoBitch"
466.667 "Kaleb Rysode"
426.5 "Artctura"
212.333 "DaeHan Minhyok"

In light of that, I'm tempted to ask the question "what if next year's election were simplified, and you could just vote your top two candidates"?

For fun, here's who was on the BOTTOM HALF of votes most often (as a fraction of their total unique ballots appeared on).

Based on this, we can conclude that Storm, Monk, and DaeHan had plenty of name recognition, just needed to convince people to rank them higher to have a chance. On the flip side, it shows that the people that did rank FuzzySteve (for example) ranked him highly, but that there simply weren't enough of them.

And how does this explain CSM 7? CSM 6 was null dominated as it was the first time null ever really came out in force to vote for the CSM. CSM 7 on the other hand was about as diverse a CSM as you can get without picking the members by hand.

As has been asid many times, there is no voting system which ensures representation for those who refuse to vote.

I wholly agree that CSM 7 could have done more to raise their profile and perceived value, and that CCP could have done more to publicise the elction and communicate the value of the CSM to the players, but the fact is, very many players who were fully aware of the election declined to participate ( there was at least one such in my corp, to my great frustration).

It's their right not to vote, of course, but they have no claim to your sympathy or mine for not being "represented".

Null bloc candidates: Five (Myself, Kesper, Sort, Sala and Progodlegend), which is about 35% of the council. I suppose you could count Malcanis as well, as the HBC ballot was instrumental in electing him and he is technically part of the bloc, but even that's only 42%.

Basically, I'm saying that I think the people who were claiming that STV is all about rigging it for nullsec (ya'll know who you are) can put down their tinfoil hats. If anything we're under represented. Blink

A simplified answer to that simplified question would be:
All. Every single one.

(There are no non-hisec starter systems)

Less simplified, there is no correct answer I fear.
I'm sure there are few on the CSM who haven't at least tried out several aspects of the game, in several kinds of space. Also, "hisec" is only an area in space. You should not be asking for the area, but for the playstyles. You have ratters and carebears in every kind of space, you have hunters in all kinds of space (but of course using different approaches).
If a Goon candidate is spending most of his active playtime ganking in Uedema or trading in Jita, is he "from highsec" or "from nullsec"?

What "hisec" self-identifiers should be concerned about is "casual" gameplay. That is one perspective that is hard to mesh with an imaginary space council. I would say it is literally impossible to be a "casual" player and be an effective CSM. Therefore, the self-identified "hisec" bloc should be voting for those candidates that purposefully and continuously acknowledge and listen to feedback from casual players. Only then can you hope that your playstyle won't be stomped into the mud by changes because no one in CCP or on the CSM even know what makes the game for you.

Unfortunately, casual players have long been spoken for by a select few hisec turbonerd forum warriors who are anything but casual, yet use an imagined conflict between security areas to attempt to protect their solo/afk/multiboxing hisec wealth generation, which has nothing to do with being "casual" and everything to do with wanting rewards without risk.

The sooner casual players divorce themselves from their unrepresentative unofficial crusaders, the sooner they can become a coherent voice for casual gameplay, and have people step up as representatives thereof.

Both of these are really bizarre because of the top 2 results, especially the first one. The rule of thumb for that is (or was supposed to be) "appearing anywhere is an advantage for top 2" yet Ripard and I got it, with no less than eight candidates above us who had more appearances anywhere.

I'm sure there's an explanation and it will make sense if I were to trace the audit log for the top two, it's just unintuitive.

I may be misunderstanding the way this voting system works, but I think it is because while # of ballots said candidate is on is important; placement on the ballot is also extremely important.

So, if candidate A has twice the number of ballots as candidate B but all of B's ballots list B first and A second while A has only 25% of his ballots listing him first; then B is much more likely to be elected, particularly if B has very few overvotes.

This is why mynnna and Rip get the 1 and 2 spots even though lots of others had more ballots than them; note that on the list of top 4 places on ballots they move up to 2 and 3, showing that they have a high primary vote placement.

The top 4 one is an artifact of the goon ballot. Because it was CFC1, CFC2, CFC3, HBC1, HBC2, HBC3 (or vice versa), the net result of any analysis that aggregates top 4 is that CFC1 and HBC1 will both be inflated because a very particular set of ballots was created with that pattern.

It's quite simple. You need to appear on a lot of ballots, but appearing higher is better. If your average position is higher, and in particular if you have a lot of first-place votes, you will survive elimination longer.

To give an absurd example, a candidate who appeared on every ballot, but always in 14th place, would be the first eliminated.

Here's a quick table (sorry for the horrible formatting, pity we don't have code tags on this forum....) that shows, for each candidate, how many first place ballots they had, how many times they appear on a ballot, their strength (1/average position on ballot) and power (average position * number of appearances)

Well taking Mangala as top of the list for votes anywhere - he was down near the bottom of the CFC and HBC ballots. He also appeared somewhere in the middle of a lot of suggested lists of people like Ripard, Trebor etc. In fact I don't think I saw many suggested lists that didn't include him somewhere.

Whereas for yourself, you got a lot of support from CFC and HBC, where you appeared at the top of the list. So you got enough #1 votes to guarantee your place, but not the depth of support from elsewhere.

Both of these are really bizarre because of the top 2 results, especially the first one. The rule of thumb for that is (or was supposed to be) "appearing anywhere is an advantage for top 2" yet Ripard and I got it, with no less than eight candidates above us who had more appearances anywhere.

I'm sure there's an explanation and it will make sense if I were to trace the audit log for the top two, it's just unintuitive.


If you have enough votes to survive the first few elimination phases, you can begin to really stack on the secondary votes. Place 14 isn't any use to anyone in a 2 vote system, as they'll be the first eliminated.

Woo! CSM XI!

What "hisec" self-identifiers should be concerned about is "casual" gameplay. That is one perspective that is hard to mesh with an imaginary space council. I would say it is literally impossible to be a "casual" player and be an effective CSM. Therefore, the self-identified "hisec" bloc should be voting for those candidates that purposefully and continuously acknowledge and listen to feedback from casual players. Only then can you hope that your playstyle won't be stomped into the mud by changes because no one in CCP or on the CSM even know what makes the game for you.

Unfortunately, casual players have long been spoken for by a select few hisec turbonerd forum warriors who are anything but casual, yet use an imagined conflict between security areas to attempt to protect their solo/afk/multiboxing hisec wealth generation, which has nothing to do with being "casual" and everything to do with wanting rewards without risk.

The sooner casual players divorce themselves from their unrepresentative unofficial crusaders, the sooner they can become a coherent voice for casual gameplay, and have people step up as representatives thereof.



*CHEERING, LOUD APPLAUSE*

Also I have been championing hi-sec as the venue for casual-not-carebear play since 2011...

Mynnna was on quite a few independent lists, including mine.

Honestly, I'm pretty pleased at the overall quality of the people I'm working with in the CSM channel.
