With the sudden depature of the second most voted for member(no comment on that issue)and the 3k who voted for her added to the 750 votes that were spoiled, this now leaves you with a mandate set by less the 10%.

Does this % still make u feel u should speak for the wider eve playerbase or does it make you feel more like sticking to your own mandate?

Im am just curious to know, the question itself should not be taken as direct or indirect notion of how i feel about csm.

Psh. This is democrazy. Even if only three humpties go voting, the election is still valid. Just because no one else gives a **** doesn't mean people won't be doing it. By not voting, those 90% agree with whatever result the election turns out.

You could always vote to disband the CSM and if you get those 90% to vote for it, I am sure no one would argue against it. Good luck.

Any voting system is always run by the people that actually take the effort to vote. Considering that it took a few seconds effort to log in and cast a vote, this was not a hard system to participate in.

If you feel the CSM isn't based off a large enough % of eve's population voting, then run publicity to get people to vote next time. Disbanding any system because people can't be bothered to vote is ridiculous. The United States routinely has national elections where only slightly more than a third of the populace votes (mid-term elections), and larger presidential elections where slightly more than half vote. No one is calling for it to become a dictatorship because of that fact.

Decisions are made by those who show up, or in this case, vote.

I make a policy of not giving a damn about the opinions of people who don't even bother to show up to vote. So, 100% of the Eve players who matter had a voice in the CSM election. That sounds like a pretty good number to me.

What you really should do, is go back to elementary school and learn basic english.

I agree that it's not needed to listen to those who didn't vote, when assembling a CSM. In this case 3k votes represent such a large block that automatically choosing #11 would be unfair. Someone with similar views as Ankh should be selected, but maybe with a different modus operandi. So far CCP has not appointed a new member, so there's hope that they won't go for #11 automatically.

I was also thinking as the mechanice are in place for mass voting,if any major issue comes up would csm recomend a referendum ofc organised by csm.

Well, if CCP would be a country and they would have cut a person with a majority of the vote out of the goverment for some reasons that they dont wanna explain, it would be also no more a democracy. More like a military dictatorship of the goverment with a puppet democracy goverment ;)

I give Rothrin right, in this Case, CCP should think about a new Election if they make a thing like that or give the people a real reaspn why they push out the second most wanted CSM ;) So ppl can decide if the CSM decision was a good one or a bad one and decide if new votes are neccesarily or not ;)

Anything else is just a bad joke ;)

When you're dealing with the net, yes it is.
Besides, even here in Germany you learn proper use of apostrophes in school. At least theoretically. Doesn't stop people from placing idiot's apo'strophe's everywhere or using netspeak, sadly.

You guys don't have to worry about a single thing. I too am capable of being a gigantic carebear, and infact I often take the opportunity to charge my corpmates a lot of money for basic items at our base of operations.

I am a highly prestigious csm candidate and will take on the heavy burden of representing three thousand whole people that have been left behind in the tragedy. That meant I'm representing a total of 4,538 people, which means that I got more votes than Mynxee and probably should become chair now.
