Representing highsec dwellers, lolwhat? Kindly forgot that I raised more Factional Warfare issues than the rest of the CSM combined, got the skill queue into the game, and am the founder of Take Care, a platform with a massive following and a seat on every CSM to date (Erik Finnegan, Z0D) through which I hand all the influence I get back to the players?

My unique selling point is that players can actively participate in the CSM and retain their voice. That I am truly representing all players, and not a personal or alliance agenda.

Ankh, you're such an insufferable sperglord.

The idea that you claim to have been productive or helpful, and not a whiny obstructionist hack, is astounding.

Your ego is immeasurable.

Just so everyone knows what's up, Ankh is championing a system that just about completely turns high-sec into Hello-Kitty Online.

The only people she represents are the kind of people who are still whining about ninja-salvaging, and people who think gankers should be perma-banned.

She also claims to know about 0.0 warfare - joined CVA after they lost Providence and has mostly been seen running missions in high-sec during that time (and losing ships due to war decs).

Also, she has a total of 9 lifetime kills.

Talk about completely missing the point of the whole game. But then again, she's a "game designer" so she in for this only to get a line or two in her CV.

Be aware - and - vote someone who actually cares about the game.

@SgtBaker It's a job she pays for, huh?

Really, do we want someone who doesn't even enjoy the game and equates playing to a job to be the one who represents us and our fun?

(copied from Pg3 comments)
Thank You for doing the research and posting this breakdown of candidates! There certainly are a lot of candidates this time around, but it is great to have a 3rd party assessment of each candidate, and it is important to note which candidates have put in a serious dedication of time to their campaign.

One snare I caution people on for campaign platforms: Don't let candidates sway you with 1) undeliverable promises (Great Big New Things!! No Ganking! NO MORE LAG!), or 2) promises of fixes that are already in motion (e.g. - lag, forums, petitions). The CSM will not revolutionize the game, if they did, you should be worried. However, they do have the ability to improve what's there, relay player feedback and suggestions, and make EVE more like what you the players want.

In regards to previously sitting members of the CSM, players would do well to ask themselves which previously sitting members have actually made a difference. Who have you ever heard of, who has been accessible? A few past CSM delegates have been immensely helpful and productive. Many others have not.

All that said, I hope that I may earn your vote(s) based on a strong platform, and the dedication and hard work evident in my campaign.

Once a joke, always a joke. These kids actually think they are doing something?

This joke was created out of pure fear on CCP's part on the mass exodus that started once devs were found to be favoring certain corps. In that time no fewer than 3 devs have been caught tampering, and more than that before havent been caught, and to quell the anger and stop sub losses?

.......The CSM was born. Pathetic, but perfect in keeping with EVEs demographic.

Yeah, I agree it's a bit of a joke.

But it is the *only* way to cut through CCP's corporate bull and actually get ideas noticed and implemented. See, they've hooked themselves into it because they've sqeezed so much PR out of it. They just can't afford to ignore the CSM.

It might not be much, but the average dev doesn't read the forums and even if they do (i.e. Grayscale/Abathur), the chances of them becoming interested in something are so miniscule it doesn't really happen at all. And even if it does happen - it still has to travel through their entire organization and the chances are the idea won't be looking anything like the forum post once they're done with it.

The CSM is a chance to shortcut the entire process. But the candidates need to be forumwhores - collecting and presenting ideas - not ego-kids driving their own agendas (like Ankh, above).

In the last election, someone had put up a website that surveyed the voters opinions and matched them up with candidates. Has that been done again for this election? If so, does anyone have the address?

To make it clear, I'm not for removing useless items, but to make them useful once more, for example, if we take t2 guns and meta4 guns, they have the same stats, xpt for the fitting and skills requirements, but when we consider the advanced skills they need, t2 guns have some extra dps and can use t2 ammo too, and thats balanced.

Now we take t2 and meta4 armor plates, meta4 are better from the very beginning, and there is no advanced skills improvements to make t2 armor plates better even if we max all skills. So we need to buff t2 ammo plates, so the players have the reason to build and use them.

Most of y'all are not old enough to remember the good ol days when mining was the MOST profitable profession. Whole corps were built around mining, a skill that any player could contribute to. And industry thrived. Corp mining ops in empire would last for hours, and roids would not deplete in a single cycle.

When you could melt loot from L4s and end up with more minerals than you could by mining, the industry profession died. Along with it a majority of empire based industrial corps, after all, what's the use of a hulk when the roid pops in half a cycle? I speak in generality of course as some ridiculous people might still do this against all logical odds, it is not the norm.

I personally am waiting to seriously play this game again until that side of the game is fixed. Industrial/Mining corps were such fun for me. I loved mining, and I loved griefing miners. Nothing compared to a few hours of chatting with friends, grooving to tunes, and mining away, then suicide ganking the mining op right next to you.
I think you fuzzy empire bunnies are forgetting that you can be killed in empire too. It takes a little more creativity, but it's often many times more rewarding. Actually I've suicide podded players simply because they had an '03 born on stamp and had a "good feeling" about their implants.
But trust me when I say, I've suicided dozens of people and I prefer to get to know them now before I do it. It's so much more satisfying. The loot really doesn't matter to me. I play to win on the online game EVE masquerading as a teenage girl; "Ashley Sky" and my buddy is little "Wynona", we routinely obliterate "Care Bears".
It's amazing how people tend to trust teenage girls.
I'm actually a 49 year old dude! I think I should be a candidate.

"As one of the GoonWaffe entries, he's sure to gain plenty of votes from his large corporate backing."

I find it interesting that none of the other corporate backed candidates (including those from *much* larger alliances than Goonwaffe) had anything like this included in their round up.

I included this because of the controversy surrounding GoonSwarm in the first few elections. In the first election, they managed to get two members in and caused players to post a huge vote-of-no-confidence thread. Yet despite this, they've always functioned amicably as part of the CSM. It's a very valid point though that larger alliances did field a candidate and tell their members to vote for them. I just didn't really pick up on that and if I had, I would have included it in the other candidates' profiles too. I apologise for that inconsistency.

What I find more interesting is that despite their backing, neither of the Goon candidates won full council member positions. Helen took an alternate seat while Avalloc didn't even get enough for that.
