So I took that test thing to see who matched most closely with me.....

.....God what a bunch of losers! Does that make me a loser? Well possible, but I reckon not actually. My highest match was 62% and basically from there down I only hit around the 50% mark. I was hoping to see some closer matches, but then actually I have a diverse range of opinions and dont neatly fit into the sterotypes of either being a hardcore pro industrialist, or a hardcore pro 0.0 alliance member etc. As such I wasn't attracted to all the leading questions around the hot issues.

So then I went to look in detail.
Out of all of them? The Mittani's was most well written. I voted for him as he sounded the most plausible candidate.
Could he be a total ****? Yep, probably. I've read his stuff online sometimes and he seems like the sort of person that revels in internet fame, covets it in fact. From reading his stuff, I would say he's more intelligent that most online, but still less intelligent that he believes himself to be.

But what about other candidates? Well let's face it, we only have what they've said to go on, unless they were previously elected, and to be honest I haven't been all that impressed with what they've done.
So because of that, I voted Mittani. He sounded very convincing. Like I say, he could be talking from his arse, but then so can any of the candidates.

Do you know who disappointed me most? General Windypops. Being a fellow UKer, I scoured that list for candidates from the UK and found surprisingly few.
When I found Windypop's campaign, I thought finally there was something reasonably detailed that could be worth reading.
But where is the reason I should vote for you Windypops?? You've spun a very interesting story about the massive conspiracy at hand with NC and Goons, and you seem to hate them a lot. And as a response to that; of *course* they would want as many of them on the CSM as possible. Who wouldnt? They're an alliance. It would be great for any alliance to have their views heard on a grander scale.
But you seem to oppose it simply because that exists as a concept. How DARE they try to have their views represented so strongly. Everyone must immediately oppose it because someone is trying to win an election.
I have absolutely zero ties to these guys or any major alliance by the way.

But Windypops, you made me sad. As a fellow UKer, I wanted to see some reason for me to vote for *you*, not why I shouldnt vote for someone else. That is a weak campaign, and so many people fall down that trap in many other forms of elections (councils, unions etc).

So there it is. My personal choices and why.

Good observational skills there, I think. Mittens was the only candidate who offered something different from the norm, although, as you point out, it's somewhat lathered in layers of self-hype and a vastly overestimated sense of self worth. But he certainly is intelligent. That said, Seleene's position as a previous CCP dev should be invaluable, and would have been worth your vote as well, not least because he actually is a game designer, not just someone who pretends to be.

Person who thinks it's ok for one alliance to control all of the CSM in "not voting for person who doesn't think it's ok for one alliance to control all of the CSM" shocker.

The only genuine shock is that someone actually bothered to look at my website.

Maybe you should read my post again. There's quite a bit of anti-Mittani in there too.
What I've done is made a neutral observation.
What you've done is made a biased and uneducated comment based on what you would have preferred I said so that everthing fits neatly into your for or against camps.

I needed you to give me reasons to vote for you, not reasons why I shouldn't vote for others.
Where are your values, what you will do for CSM and players. What do you like and not like about EVE?
All I know from your information is that you don't like NC. Lots of people don't like NC. But I can't vote purely based on some campaign to stop people being in power, I need to be voting for someone that I want to have some power, some people who present well and sound like they have good ideas.

*Edit - also, it's irrelevant whether an entire alliance owns CSM or not. CSM is about the improvement of EVE Online. It makes absolutely no difference what alliance the players are part of. The CSM dont have the final say on anything. It's CCP's game, and they are not going to favour one person, corp or alliance over any other.

I dont know exactly what you imagine these CSM meetings to be like, but I imagine it's something like this:

100% NC CSM - First on the agenda is that all players part of IT should pay us......one billlion ISK! each! mwahahahaaaaaa.

CCP - Does the CSM fully back this?

NC CSM - *in unison* we do

CCP - then so it shall be done!

NC CSM - Second. We would like 50% extra shields and armour to our ships please.

CCP - but of course.


Really, this isn't going to happen. They're just regular people behind the computer screens. People who want to make EVE a better place. Alliance doesnt come into it because CCP arent going to approve alliance-biased based requests.

It's hardly neutral and anti-mittani since you've effectively said he's the best candidate and you've voted for him,with a little p.s. windy is crap at the end of it !

i'm pretty much obsessed with intelligence, which is why i have this years-long nootropics habit

most of the e-fame and posturing is just to enrage people who dislike me already; they're not going to change their minds about me, so i might as well make them as frustrated/angry as possible

thanks for the endorsement; i think the vote match questions were deeply flawed, as if you answer truthfully to the "nullsec/lowsec/industry should be #1 priority coming before everything else" question, you get ****ed. (the truth is that no single area of space should have priority over everything else, but this borks you in the algorithm if you 'strongly disagree' on all of them for that reason)

You said pretty much the same thing on SHC, Mittens, even though I gave you the benefit of the doubt there, before it collapsed around your ears. So who really knows? I suppose we'll find out when you get together with your good friends and buddies of CSM6 for a cup of tea and a group hug.

You are absolutely correct in choosing White Tree as your elected representative. At least you have a Idea
