Last year we conducted interviews with what seemed like roughly eight or nine billion candidates running for the CSM. I can't imagine that many people read them, I know that most of our staff didn't. We're still open to anybody who wants to run an interview, but this year we're not aggressively seeking them out. Indeed, last year the one candidate that we spoke strongly against turned out to be a complete embarrassment when she did get elected, and finally ended up being removed for an NDA violation. We're still having fun with the "I told you so" bit over that.

In any case, after careful study and after long conversations with several of the CSM candidates, we have decided to endorse a slate for this year's election.

Happy voting.

I find it quite sad that you didn't take the time to be completely thorough in your study of the CSM candidates.
Of course, I say this because I haven't been interviewed Wink

I can understand that the process is a bit tedious with all those candidates, thus.

Otherwise, this list doesn't seem bad. Most of the people on there are those I'd enjoy seeing at the CSM with me.

I'd like to add something thus, for anyone interested by this list as a way of guiding your vote : remember that some of these candidates have either big alliances backing them up, or are already very popular due to their previous work with the CSM or CCP. While they have every right to be at the CSM, and are likely to bring something interesting to the table, they are pretty much elected already. Your vote won't make a difference on the first few candidates (Except for chair maybe, which is not really important), but is very much needed by the smaller ones, who will have the remaining seats.

Well, mostly being bittervets, we went off what we knew about the candidates, what conversations we'd had with them in our capacity as an internet spaceship fanzine, and what their campaign threads were like. While we aren't going to be altering our endorsements, you're certainly welcome to speak to a Tribune staffer and give us an interview in order to prove us wrong and show why we should have endorsed you.

Someone post the list of names ffs, without that this is a ******ed click-fishing thread. I give insufficient ****s to do so myself.

The Mittani for chair??? I was under the impression the goal was to make things better, not worse. Sorry but I'm not voting for a silly goon. Any of them. He has already stated that the only reason he is running is to keep CCP from touching jump bridges and to make sure 0.0 stays the same as it is now. ****.

Not voting for any NC candidate either. Harboring RMTers is not exactly the shining example of leaders we need on the CSM.

Well, this just about says what everyone needs to know. I for one will be completely disregarding each and every person "endorsed" by your faux publication.

I guess it's just a coincidence that Mittens bought out the editors of EN24 (figure being discussed is 10bn) and that mysteriously Eve Tribune also jumps over. "They lying to you"....ain't that right, Mittens?

Thanks for 'telling it straight'.

In all seriousness, if you didn't you lost out, as he's been chucking isk at everyone else. Everyone's supposed to get their cut along the way as the NC and mittani buy their way into the CSM.

I know you're NC and you kind of HAVE to vote for Mittens as chair but you should probably at least get what the other guys got.

Ok since you loathe people who 'lie to us' how much did you pay Eve News 24 to run a huge take over ad supporting you?

Since you plan to be completely honest with us I know you'll answer.

Lady crazy: you are partially correct, seeing as how were going to endorse Mittens anyways, I should have tried to shake him down for some major ISK first. Ah well, maybe next time.

Independent endorsements best endorsements Rolling Eyes

Keep up the awesome independent work and thanks for your (definitely not paid for) suggestions.

While I certainly appreciate you continuing to bump this thread, the idea that we had some sort of quid pro quo going on or that we weren't independent in our decision making is... odd. And all of it seems to be based on your getting upset at the fact that some folks paid for ad space on a website that sells ad space.

Ah well.

Your exclusion of The General is inexcusable. That was some awesome comic potential right there.

I Just find it sad that Prom, whom most of the solo and small gang players approve of, gets no airtime in these big e-peen waving contests.

You have statistics to back this claim up, yes?

Wow, look at this supposedly 'Neutral' FinnAgain charging round sucking up to Mittens and launching desperate attacks against any anti-Mitty candididates...

One less Eve Tribune reader here. Pretty pathetic, mate.

Sorry, the decisions weren't just up to me.
You're more than welcome to get in touch with our staffers about an interview, however, if you' like to show why our editorial staff was wrong not to put your name forward as an endorsement.

Originally by: The FunkyMonk

I've never claimed to be "neutral". That'd be ******ed.
In fact, I've gone on record as pointing out that every person will have their own biases and value judgements, and accusations of "bias" are banal.
I'm not banned from posting, as a poster. And obviously the Tribune's act of endorsing candidates wasn't "neutral" since we took a stand on the issue.

But the Tribune is neutral in the sense that none of them compelled or coerced us, and our endorsements could very well vary significantly come next election cycle.

Yeah... that never happened. On either point.
I personally support Mittens' campaign but my votes didn't go to him. And making fun of the tardrage directed at Mittens is hardly sucking up. I'm not sure what you even think I could possibly gain from obsequious behavior. As for claiming that I've launched "desperate attacks" (hah) against "any anti-Mitty candidates", I'll assume that you're just making that up. Because, well, you're just making that up.

I have enjoyed posting in some of the funnier sperg threads, of course. I admit it, I have a strange fascination with PALATR type threads and can't help myself.

Ah well.

Glad we could. We think you'd make a great member of the CSM.
