I suppose, I`ll give you my last two votes after all. There are certain points we disagree on; but short of running for CSM myself, that applies to any candidate.

Here`s my hope: That CSM doesn`t ruin the game. That a council of players, does not become so corrupted; that they place their voice first, over the interests of individual players.

I`m fairly certain that CSM5; was fairly seeded with corruption. Fairly certain, corruption has progressively increased; since the CSM was initiated, and made available to the player base. I agree with community involvement, and would like to see more; but the CSM delegates are becoming increasingly more likely, to press their own interests. Some, or most, even think they know better; how to improve the game for all, than those they represent.

A CSM delegate needs to recognize; that his opinion, is only a drop in the bucket. That he, or she, is only one member among many; of the total playerbase, for which he represents. They need to recognize that the Assembly Hall posters; represent only the opinions of a few more individuals, than make up the CSM.

Games get ruined, by player input and suggestions. I`ve seen this happen a dozen times, or more; and watched the games topple and die. What started as something good; soon saw it`s downfall, in playerbase input. There will always be players who think, or pretend, they know; while they push forth idea`s to satisfy their own ego`s, or make the game easier for them. Old player`s, from Beta, or shortly after; who want to make themselves more powerful, by reducing the ability for new players to gain power. There is almost always, a motive; when a player volunteers his time and effort. They are not doing something for nothing, in most cases; but instead, applying themselves, to strengthen their personal position within the game. Potentially, to make themselves a profit; outside of the game.

People are demons, monsters; who have no interests besides themselves. This is true; in almost every instance.

I appreciate the votes even if I do not agree with the last bit of your post. But, assuming you are right and we all are monsters acting only in our own best interests it behooves you to find someone whose interests are most likely to match your own. Avoid voting for someone with a very . . .set . . .agenda and purpose as they are most likely to diverge from the common path once they get what they want or are balked.

Not that I am pointing the finger at any single opponent

I voted for Mike because he seems one of the few capable of approaching problems in a reasonable way that actually works to solve it. He has innovative solutions that enhance the game rather than crudely removing certain aspects. He is realistic and not out to just fix one or two hot-button issues, but wants to work to improve all the little things as well.

Also, he doesn't try to win votes by spamming a funny pictures gallery, like some other people might.... >_>

In short: I am a heron. Vote Mike Azariah for CSM or I will come into your kitchen tonight and mess up your pots and pans.

You get my vote Mike. If anyone hasn't listened to the Lostineve.net CSM debate podcasts, I urge you to do so.

Solid display in a debate, and good logic and attitude. I won't pretend I agree with you 100%, but one of the pick of the crop.

Good luck Mike.

I'm probably the only guy on EVE without an alt for the moment, so I only get one vote. Tbh it was a toss up between Trebor and Mike, and the fact that Trebor will likely get more than enough votes has me deciding on Mike.
