This game - YOUR game - is under attack.

As leaked in various websites, at the upcoming CSM election you’re about to see the single biggest powerbloc Eve's ever known launch a cynical, deliberate and manipulative attempt to seize control of the CSM. The Northern Coalition and their partners Goonswarm are no longer content with managing most of 0.0. (and the hundreds of billions of isk they receive weekly). They’re now conniving to take control of your council.

They‘ll use the information gained under Non-Disclosure Agreement to wheedle every possible in-game advantage, exploiting the privileged access to safeguard their own political interest.

Worst of all they’ll almost certainly succeed. The NC and Goonswarm will use massive block voting (carefully co-ordinated between member corporations) to ensure this. They’ll have tens of thousands of votes available at the drop of a hat, and squash out strong minded independent candidates like me.

I’m going to make some predictions about what we’ll see in this campaign.

* Numerous NC / Goon alliance leaders standing - leadership types, not 'average Joe' members - to ensure that their players toe the line while voting.

* Slick spin doctors and media manipulators attempting to present their takeover as ‘the mavericks against the establishment’. NC / Goonswarm no ARE the establishment, and to pretend otherwise is now ludicrous.

* Wheedling between these candidates, meetings behind closed doors, to steer the campaign

* Organised forum campaigns to smear opponent candidates

It can’t possibly be good to have a single group controlling all the assets in game AND the mechanism for influencing the devs. It’s therefore, with a sense of duty, that I stand for CSM.

Primarily, my purpose is to disrupt the 'jobs for the boys' mafia taking control of your game. However I will also take the opportunity of candidacy to champion:

- Zero tolerance stance on Botting
- A major 'community' refocus within eve - enabling app development, social media tools, and open architecture.
- Revitalisation of empire warfare

I'm also committed to representing the voice of the silent majority in Eve. Unlike most candidates I will not be representing any one alliance, political view or self-interest. I will be encouraging the whole of the Eve community to vote for what THEY feel is most important.

Well folks, as promised you, the plebs of Eve, can now vote on my top 5 priorities. Already looking forward to the witty and inspired suggestions from Goonies that my priorities should be to 'end myself'.

Anyway, over to you. The first CSM campaign that's truly and openly democratic.


What could possibly go wrong?

According to your post history you have a serious problem with Goons and the NC. Are you making a real effort to get on the CSM to improve the game overall or are you just trying to keep the NC and their allies from getting their voices heard?

Trying to keep the NC and their allies from getting their voices heard?? Are you serious? As leaked on many forums and even confirmed by Mittens he and his allies have made a very deliberate ploy to TAKE CONTROL of the CSM. Not just to be REPRESENTED on it.

I have made it extremely clear that this is the core issue for me. I put myself forward for this election primarily to raise awareness of the blatant attempt of the NC / Goons to gain in game advantage by monopolising the CSM and the access that their Non-Disclosure agreements will give them.

I'm under no illusions here. I very little chance of being heard over the sheer numbers of NC / Goon members, and I've always recognised that fact. The alliances I'm trying to expose have tens of thousands of votes that they can call in at the drop of a hat. However I shall continue to use this platform to try to alert the community to the fact that they're sleepwalking into genuinely game-breaking situation.

How can it possibly be good for the game if one group of alliances controls ALL the major assets in game, will have ADVANCE NOTICE of game changes through the NDA (which they will use to consolidate their in-game monopoly), AND will be the primary mouthpiece for the players?

So you admit, then, that your entire candidacy is an attempt to thwart Goons and the NC and not because you feel you have anything to add to a discussion of the game's future. That's kind of shallow, don't you think?

How do you respond to claims in recent newspaper and TV coverage that your campaign is actually fueled by pure evil and should be feared by everyone?

Seriously, this guy is too weird to even be in real politics.
