After researching all of the 77 candidates, Bam is one of only nine to earn a full endorsement from me. He's on my list and he should be on yours.

Think Bam would make an incredible asset to the CSM. His accomplishments are well known to the wider community and he has done so much without even being on the CSM.. imagine what he can do while being ON the CSM.

Full Endorsement from me.

I've known Bam for, gosh, it's got to be getting close to four years now, and he is, without doubt, my first-vote candidate and gets my enthusiastic endorsement.

I first met him in game up in Syndicate, when he was flying with Moon Warriors. We met, as often happens, by shooting each other. I was still in Agony, and especially during the AU TZ, it was often hard to find fights, but we knew if Bam Stroker was online, he'd form up a Moon Warriors gang and bring a good fight. He was always clever and cute in local, win or lose, and eventually, he and RDNx invited me to be a guest on the EveDownUnder radio show.

We had so much fun together on that episode that Bam and RDNx invited me to come back any time, which I did, and continue to do so to this day. Both of them, especially Bam, encouraged me to get more involved with the AU TZ community at large, and over time, we became fast friends.

When I left Agony to start up my community service corporation, Redemption Road, Bam (along with RDNx) was one of the first to step up and support the effort, spreading the word as only he can do.

He was the first to join me in my crazy idea of putting a team in the NEOII, tirelessly practiced throughout Affirmative's ATXII attempt, helps me organize and spread the word about our AU TZ public roams, continues to man the helm of the EveDownUnder radio show, is a key organizer of the EveDownUnder meetup, and somehow manages to attend and help organize meetups throughout Australia.

He even made it to EveVegas in 2014, where I got to meet him in person and spent lots of time together.

I mention all this because he's much more than "just" a community guy, he's a pilot of skill with a wide range of experiences in the game. Many candidates say they "understand" lowsec, nullsec, highsec, wormhole space... many claim to represent and "know" all sides of the game. He ACTUALLY DOES. He understands what it's like to be the little guy struggling to just survive the day without losing a ship. He feels the pain of multi-day fatigue timers. He knows what it is like to hunt in lowsec, grind sov space, run a corporation, lead an alliance, fly in the arena. He "gets" Eve.

But more than that, he has become one of my dearest friends.

Bam Stroker will, without doubt, be as dedicated to the CSM as he is to every thing he puts his mind to. He has proven time and again his love and commitment to the community at large, NOT just the Australian time zone community. He's tireless, hard working, intelligent, loyal, honorable, selfless, and fair. He also has a wicked sense of humor, something it seems the CSM could use at times Lol He has a remarkable ability to see both sides of any debate, to put the needs of others in front of his own needs, to follow through on his word, and to always, always, remember it's about all of us, the community of Eve.

I have no doubt that Bam will be an outstanding CSM member, and he has my heartfelt and enthusiastic endorsement.

I can't say that I know you, but you have a great platform and I can't argue with all the love here.

+1 from USTZ. I'm looking forward to seeing what you can do.

I voted in CSM X!

You need a gang to game this mechanic, six corpies should do it. Use Eve meetup, make sure that Bam is hosting. In turn hang away from the group, dictating range is key, to split Bam from the blob. He'll escort you to the bar and then you buy him a drink, this is vital, then hand off to another corpie and repeat: result Bam off his face!


Vote Bam ;)

You've just made me realise that I've fallen victim to this tactic several times. Now I know what to watch out for! :p

Full endorsement for this great man, he does so much for eve-online and since he took over the community role at eve-bet i have been so completely astounded by how much he will do to support everyone and everything in our great community. An integral part of our team and the perfect candidate for CSM.

Bam we are behind you.

Well the race has been run and I didn't come in the final placings. It's a shame but I'm not going to hide under my duvet and be sad about it. :)

I just wanted to say a sincere thank you to everyone who supported me on my CSM campaign with encouragement and endorsements and of course to everyone who voted for me regardless of where I was on your ballots.

I also want to congratulate the members of CSM X - both returning and new - and wish them all the best for the year ahead.

I won't rule out another tilt next year but for now I'm just going to concentrate on my other spinning plates.

Cheers!

Disappointed you didn't get there for your community input (although I have no idea whether or not I consider you a good or bad choice in regard to game balance decisions).

My #5 position didn't seem to get you there.
