Hey guys,

Last year we did a massive CSM candidate roundup article at Massively, where we collected together all the links and information on each candidate and put them all in one place. A spike in the voting graph for the days following the article suggested that as much as 10% of the total votes may have been due to our roundup. Candidates also reported large spikes in the number of hits to their campaign websites and videos. The article clearly had a big impact on voting, so this year we've done it again in an effort to get people voting:

Massively's EVE Online CSM 6 candidate roundup


As with last year, the article has a full listing of all candidates in the running with a short researched paragraph on each of their goals and what platform they're running on. Next to each candidate is their picture and links to any relevant campaign resources like a campaign website, forum thread, debates, interviews or videos. All the info on them is there all in one place so you don't have to hunt around for details or endure information overload. Candidates are divided into three sections -- Members of previous CSMs and ex-CCP employees, new candidates (or those who haven't been previously elected) who are running active campaigns, and a few relatively unknown pilots that didn't make much of an effort to run a campaign.

It was pointed out last year that this order might favour previous CSM candidates, but figures from Massively showed that around 90% of people who visited the first page of the article also went on to read the list of new candidates. It seems people really do want to know what all their options are before making a decision. Not many readers went on to view the final page of players who didn't make much of an effort in their campaign, but that's to be expected. For many of these players, I couldn't find much concrete information beyond a vague forum thread or lazy blog post. Some of them have made absolutely no effort to convince us of why we should vote for them.


Although there are only four days left in the voting, I encourage you to point out any mistakes, additional information or relevant links (such as new interviews) you find. Perhaps someone in the list of relative unknowns has a detailed campaign website, debate or interview I've overlooked that would put them into the list of new campaigners? Or maybe the summary I've written up of someone's position isn't entirely accurate and could do with some ammendment. Whatever the issue is, please let me know and I'll get right on it. As long as you guys supply any new info that comes to light, I'll keep the article up to date as a comprehensive resource leading up to the voting's closing on March 23rd. Feel free also to submit new information, links and corrections via this thread.

Massively has always been a big supporter of the CSM, providing coverage of the CSM summit and interviews with CSM members to put them in a more public arena. For those still hesitant to vote, last week's EVE Evolved was also dedicated entirely to convincing people that their votes really do count. If you know anyone who doesn't think their vote will count, maybe one of these articles will change their mind.

Next term, earlier timing! Independant and industry media are becoming ever more important to this emerging dynamic called EVE Cool

I had forgotten just how much work it took to produce this roundup last year and so started a few days late. Next term it should be much earlier, but hopefully this term it will help indecisive stragglers to select a candidate.

CSM, and everything around it (including coverage like this) is a hell of a lot of work (at least for those who want to do the right things right). So no worries, it's nice to see this. Maybe next term, there will even be options for creating synergy between player and other media Cool along the way.

Of COURSE people should vote Trebor, Seleene, and Ripard! And then Meissa and Roc if those won't do. Nice roundup. I lol'd at your rather...blunt...comments about those who appear to have thrown their hats in the ring on a whim and with no plan or platform! Wink You tell 'em, Nyphur!

Is it me, or was Draco not on that list?

Nice. That's a fairly accurate summary of my campaign message.

There's a lot of detail missing in a brief lineup like this so I thoroughly recommend people look at candidates a bit closer too.

Thanks for putting this together.

Yeah, looks like a pretty good summary. I don't think you should have lumped former CCP devs with the returning CSM though.

This was primarily a decision made based on the numbers as there were much fewer returning CSM members this year. Since ex-employees will have the same experience in dealing with CCP directly (if not more), it made much more sense to put them alongside ex-CSM than to put them in any other category.

Some people have jobs and a life that interferes with the meetings but its definately something that needs to be pointed out, and its a good indication of your level of dedication. I do not doubt that everyone would have assumed that you'd attended every one.

Very nice round up. I learned a few things about my competition / possible future council members. Smile

Nice article you made there ! It brought me some extra info on some of the other candidates, and allowed me to update my "dream list of who I'd like to share the seats with".

Also, way to burn some of the "relatively unknown" there. Ouch for 'em.

One thing, Nyphur: the article states: "several ex-CCP employees have signed up to the council"

Only two, not several.

Just goes to show you I wasn't kidding when I said I was running for re-election because I had "not yet plumbed the depths of my own masochism." Very Happy

And I will point out that my wife thought that this movie that AnimEigo released was "charming".
