    [Dev Blog] candidacy period for csm7 to open soon!

    http://www.eveonline.com/devblog.asp?a=blog&nbid=3386

    reported by CCP Diagoras | 2012.01.25 14:13:07 | NEW | Comments
    The sixth Council of Stellar Management’s term is due to end on April 4th, and as such it’s now time to start up the machine that is the CSM election cycle!



    CSM election results announced at Fanfest 2010

    This CSM term will see a change to the election process where upon being approved by CCP, the candidates must prove a certain level of support in order to be included in the final candidate list. This initial nomination stage will be assessed based on the number of “likes” given to the initial post for that candidate’s forum thread; if the number exceeds 100 then they will be included in the final list.

    The schedule for the elections is as follows:

    February 8th to 22nd – Candidacy application period opens
    February 22nd – Publication of the list of approved candidates; nomination stage begins
    February 29th – List of candidates who passed nomination stage published
    March 7th – Voting opens
    March 21st – Voting closes
    March 24th – Results announced during Fanfest keynote.
    April 4th – CSM 7 take office
    April 3rd, 2013 – CSM 8 take office

    The requirements to be able to run as a candidate in the CSM7 elections are as follows:

    • You must have an active EVE Online account that is older than 30 days.
    • You must be aged 21 years or older as of April 4th, 2012.
    • You must provide your address and an e-mail address where you can be reached, which will not be made public.
    • You must provide a scan or reasonable quality photograph of a valid passport to verify your identity and that you can travel internationally to the CCP HQ in Reykjavik, Iceland.
    • You must be willing and able to sign a non-disclosure agreement with CCP as the CSM are regularly provided with information that is not for public release.
    • You must be willing for your real name and country of residence to be made public alongside your character name on the EVE Online website. No other personal details required for candidacy will be made public.
    • You must provide a reasonable campaign message stating your reasons for running, in no more than 200 words.
    • You must have up to date and accurate account ownership information on all of your EVE Online accounts.
    • You should be willing to actively engage in forum and chat room style discussions with CCP and the other members of the CSM.
    • In addition to the above in accordance with the CSM white paper, any serious violations of the EVE Online EULA may void your eligibility to run. All applications will result in an audit of the accounts belonging to the applicant. In cases where EULA violations have occurred, the application will be assessed on the basis of the severity of the violation and the length of time since the violation occurred. More information on candidate eligibility can be found in the CSM white paper.



    Should you have any queries regarding the CSM election process, please head over to the comments thread or if you would like more private issues addressed, you can contact us via e-mail at csm-contact@ccpgames.com.

    Figured I would post this, because historically CCP doesn't bother to document the key dates anywhere else but in the first "CSM elections upcoming" dev blog and they get lost in the shuffle.

    Not going to happen ever I'm afraid. And even if I were allowed I don't think I could spare the time anymore, and these days I find interacting with the proles such a chore (although going off CSM 6's track record communication with the working classes is discouraged).

    I'll be keeping this post updated as CSM6 members announce themselves as running or not running:

    CSM6 Incumbents

    As of right now, UAxDEATH, Mittens, Seleene, Trebor, Meissa, and Two step have announced and confirmed that they're running.

    Prom, does the post above comprise an official announcement that you're running?
    Ripard Teg (among others)... what's our new alliance called again?
    I was once Deemed Worthy To Wield The Banhammer, to good effect. Or at least, that's what most of EVE believes.

    Indeed I am. Just about everything that I had on my platform was achieved in the one term, so it'd be interesting to see what else can be done.
    Mittani plans to get a larger goon vote, so unless people are actually in goonswarm, I can't see him actually needing any extra votes

    Dunno who I'll vote for but won't be any of the current CSM as they've proven themselves to be fucking awful and out of touch.

    I guess it depends if anyone's gonna be running on a small-gang/corp basis.

    if by 'out of touch' you mean 'got a bunch of shit done, owned everything, ignored babbys on failheap', yep

    by definition us having all these lovely votes means that we're the ones in touch, and you're a voice in the wilderness

    Not really. What percentage of the total electorate actually voted for you Alex?

    What percentage voted at all?

    You're out of touch because you, and all of you colleagues on the CSM represent space empires in some shape or form. Your views don't represent those who choose to engage in different aspects of the game from your alliances. About the closest you get is Prom but even then he represents the Hydra block which sits at the upper end of the game and people who are flush with tournament prizes and also out of touch with the game's grass roots.

    I'd like to see a highsec candidate or two, or a small corp candidate etc... who represent the people that don't get represented under the current system because of the inevitable vote split which large powerblocks like yours don't suffer from.
