No. I think CCPs public relations gimmick can run just fine without me. Cool


So would you vote for a candidate who ran on a platform of "CSM is a CCP PR gimmick. Do not vote for me."?
Once one has co-opted with the Big Lie...that is the definition of corrupt. So. No. CCP has already demonstrated its position in relation to the customer. That's the problem with trying to get good fruit from a bad tree.


But haven't you already co-opted with the Big Lie? How can I trust you? You are posting right here on these same forums that I am. The ones that CCP controls! Yikes! Maybe you are a CCP plant who is just here to help CCP claim that CSM is pointless because no one votes anymore because of the Big Lie!

Holy sh!t, maybe you are part of the Lie!!

Everyone vote for Serene Repose!! We must expose the Big Lie on the giant rotten apple bush!!

Vote for me if you want. If I win, I won't show up. And, who said you could trust me? This is the land of "trust no one" with people exclaiming, "Trust me! Trust me!" And yeah, CCP loves me. I make six figures a year in their PR office. I do wonders for their corporate image.


I love how you know so little about how CSM voting works that you think I can just go vote for you. And yet, you pretend to know enough about the process to tell us that it's a crap process. That is some real awesomesauce right there.

Of course you're an idiot. Red Fed, Brain Dead Fed.

But actually, I'm calling Poe's law on this one. I don't think anyone can really be that dumb.

Just as a point of order, I think it should be mentioned that selling your votes is a totally legitimate meta-game tactic.

I don't have any idea what kind of a lowlife would want to buy your filthy scum-vote. But the idea itself isn't awful.

I voted. I picked those who I thought had interests that sorta aligned with my own.

I know it probably won't make a damn bit of difference but what the hell.

What other game presently engages it player base like CCP does. Even if it's all eye candy, who cares at least they try

To be honest, one or two of my votes were troll votes.

I was tempted, but I felt that there were some people worth voting for that shared my interests.

No and I won't, not gonna bother with something that makes no difference to me.
If the game gets better, good.
If the game gets worse, I'll just stop playing.

If I'm gonna be giving out my ideas I rather create my own game.
I'm not here to suggest anything nor create anyone else's game.

Good for you! I'm so glad that you are sticking to some unidentifiable principle here. Ayn Rand would be so incredibly proud of you for not contributing anything to a social milieu that you, yourself participate in and benefit from.

I'm really looking forward to this game that you are going to create. Please do let us know when it is going to be released. I bet you actual swarms of ones of people will be clamoring to play it. It better be good since you are doing such an amazing job of protecting your ideas from everyone else.

I get it. You're trying to be smart! For a minute, I thought Serene's sarcasm went totally over your head. WAIT! IT DID!

The right to free speech doesn't automatically carry with it the right to be taken seriously.

Know so little....you are serious, right? I know this CSM vote process is so complicated only one of your awesome intelligence..."sauce"? ...um...where was I? Oh yes, ONLY one of YOUR intelligence could POSSIBLY understand how it REALLY WORKS! GEE!! Aren't YOU lucky to be born with all the brains?

There really isn't much to say in response to a post like this, except to ask if you've had your milk and cookies yet. Well...
have you? Cool

So wait, you did not scam with your voting right for freebies? Some of the candidates can be quite, err, persuasive, just to get votes.

It certainly sounds like some people need to stop playing, move on already gee.

Me an my ALTs have voted Smile

Way I look at it, I have voted for members that represent all aspects of the game there are so many different things you can do in EVE. IMO no one play style should have majority of the Council.

Who can pass up a trip to CCP. I bet anyone of you buggers if given half a chance would not turn down a place on the council to get a trip.

Yes and I'll quite freely admit I only cared for 5 of the candidates, meaning another 9 I didn't even read the campaigns for.

Seriously what is the pont of the CSM. How many times have former CSM members have come forwarded and have said that it is basically a waste of time

On top of this after the fisco of the last CSM throwing their toys out of their pram and acting like a bunch of children by creating private channels because they didn't like somebody instead of talking like adults.
