The race for CSM positions is a yearly event in which EVE players put forth their names to become one of the next voices of our beloved community. According to CCP:

The Council of Stellar Management is a player advocacy group, consisting of 10 members democratically elected by the players to advise and assist CCP in the continuous development of EVE. The CSM brings focused, structured feedback from the community to CCP and represents its views and interests.

What might come as a surprise is that the candidates for these positions come from all walks of life, and comprise some of the brightest and most qualified individuals in the community. There is a large wealth of knowledge and game play experience between all the candidates. It was a challenge to try to lump many of these potential candidates in categories such as High Sec, Low Sec, Null, and Wormhole, mainly because many of these individuals operate in multiple areas or even wish to represent all people equally not just a certain group in the game. So I placed them in categories by areas in which they openly claimed their from. This is backed by looking into each person’s corporation/Alliance for where they usually roam.

We have multiple returning CSMs coming back for another election: Aryth, Jin’taan, Suitonia, Xenuria, The Judge, Innominate and Steve Ronuken, all of whom are excellent members of our community that have helped advise CCP about the wishes and wants of WE the players. We have everything from professional politicians and lobbyists like Brisc Rubal, who actually testified before the American Congress, to IT Directors of Fortune 100 companies like Silver Suspiria. We have experts in niches in the game such as tournament play by Bei Artjay who has helped bring tournaments and meet-ups into the wider community, working with CCP to bring tournament play to the masses. Another group that deserves to be mentioned are disabled players in EVE Online. Arielle en Distel is legally blind and hopes to aid other disabled players in the game.

We have famous names that are part of our community through podcasts, Youtube channels and fleet commanding such as Killah Bee, ExookiZ, and Jin’taan. We even have other famous names in the running like The Judge who gained infamy through his actions betraying CO2 to Goonswarm Federation.

I placed candidates in their positions because they are either from corporations/alliances that are in those regions, mainly have experience in that area or openly advocated for people there.

Null Sec.

It will be interesting to see how Provi-Bloc votes as its traditional voice in the CSM was Jin’taan. However, he has now left Provi-Bloc while they were in the middle of a brutal war against Pandemic Legion, to go to TEST. Currently the only Provi-Bloc candidate is Carbon Alabel.

Wormhole space

The average Wormhole candidate in this year’s running is chock full of experience. Some of the old vets are Tifida, Kali Omega, Claevyan, Razorblade92, and ExookiZ all of which have around a decade of game experience apiece. While all of these candidates are wormholers, a common aspect is the fierce PVP streak in most of them, while ExookiZ has a unique outlook as he usually runs a Corporations out of such areas. Then there are players like Claevyan and Cwittofur Cesaille that have backgrounds in building industry as well.

Low Sec/Faction Warfare

The Low Sec candidates have unique skill sets within and outside the game. From Silver Suspiria who has worked on several advisory boards in real life organizations to Faction Warfare focused Kalen Tsero. Saint Michaels Soul is mainly focused on the ecology of all of Low Sec and wishes to make sure CCP focus on the development of the region.

High Sec/Industry Focus

For High Sec, we have people like Steve Ronuken who has served on the CSM in the past and is heavy 3rd party contributor. Other notable candidates are Chainsaw Plankton who has a background in Piracy. His counterpoint to this is Lorelei Ierendi, who is focused on Industry.

Damian Blackie

Only 6 of the previous 10 CSM candidates are running again, ensuring at least some new blood will be able to get in to help guide the Council. While each candidate inhabits their own specific niche, they will all be asked questions on the topics that face players in EVE Online. In this year’s running, many fresh faces have placed their names into the ring. This does not necessarily mean they are new to EVE, as the average candidate has long years of experience behind them.

In the past CSM the group that had the most seats on the CSM board was that of Goonswarm Federation. Goonswarm has the chance of having two to even three people on the CSM. However, with so many candidates running from various power blocks this should make a interesting race for the CSM board in the coming year.

For now, good reader, do not take my word on these candidates. Do your due diligence and research the candidates that are presented before you to identify and support the person whom YOU believe will best help the game from your perspective. The CSM elections begin soon so check the links on the names of the individuals to see the platform in which they are running for. So do your own research and vote accordingly.

Very Respectfully,

Kyle Saltz,

Thanks go to NoizyGamer CSM Wire for the exceptionally detailed and insightful information all in one place.

  1. I have realized some new items from your web site about computers. Another thing I have always thought is that computer systems have become a specific thing that each residence must have for some reasons. They provide convenient ways in which to organize households, pay bills, search for information, study, tune in to music and in many cases watch tv series. An innovative way to complete many of these tasks has been a notebook. These pcs are portable ones, small, robust and easily transportable.

  2. I hope you all are having a great weekend. I added a new list. This one is smaller, but still useful. I think the next one will be bigger.

  3. Thanks for your blog post. Some tips i would like to add is that personal computer memory should be purchased in case your computer can no longer cope with anything you do with it. One can put in two RAM memory boards containing 1GB each, as an example, but not one of 1GB and one with 2GB. One should look for the maker’s documentation for own PC to be sure what type of ram is necessary.

  4. Great blog post. Some tips i would like to contribute is that computer system memory must be purchased if your computer still cannot cope with whatever you do along with it. One can set up two RAM boards having 1GB each, as an illustration, but not certainly one of 1GB and one with 2GB. One should make sure the manufacturer’s documentation for one’s PC to make sure what type of storage is needed.

  5. One thing I’d prefer to say is the fact that before obtaining more personal computer memory, check out the machine into which it can be installed. When the machine will be running Windows XP, for instance, the particular memory threshold is 3.25GB. Installing more than this would purely constitute a new waste. Make sure one’s motherboard can handle the actual upgrade volume, as well. Thanks for your blog post.

  7. Interesting blog post. Some tips i would like to bring about is that laptop memory should be purchased if your computer still can’t cope with what you do along with it. One can put in two RAM memory boards containing 1GB each, as an example, but not one of 1GB and one with 2GB. One should check the company’s documentation for the PC to be certain what type of memory space is needed.

  8. One thing I would really like to say is always that before obtaining more laptop memory, look at the machine in which it would be installed. If the machine is actually running Windows XP, for instance, the actual memory ceiling is 3.25GB. The installation of over this would purely constitute just a waste. Make sure that one’s mother board can handle the particular upgrade quantity, as well. Interesting blog post.

  11. The things i have observed in terms of laptop memory is the fact that there are technical specs such as SDRAM, DDR etc, that must fit the technical specs of the motherboard. If the computer’s motherboard is rather current while there are no operating system issues, updating the ram literally normally takes under 1 hour. It’s one of several easiest computer upgrade techniques one can consider. Thanks for expressing your ideas.

  18. Thanks for your suggestions. One thing I have noticed is that often banks plus financial institutions have in mind the spending practices of consumers and also understand that most people max out and about their credit cards around the holiday seasons. They prudently take advantage of this kind of fact and start flooding a person’s inbox along with snail-mail box with hundreds of no-interest APR credit card offers shortly when the holiday season ends. Knowing that if you are like 98% of American open public, you’ll leap at the one opportunity to consolidate personal credit card debt and shift balances to 0 interest rate credit cards.

  20. Thanks for these pointers. One thing I also believe is credit cards presenting a 0% rate often appeal to consumers together with zero rate, instant acceptance and easy on the web balance transfers, nonetheless beware of the top factor that will certainly void your 0% easy road annual percentage rate and as well as throw one out into the very poor house rapid.

  24. Schöne ruhige 1-Zimmer Wohnung / Küche / BAD / WC / SAT-TV / Internet / Waschmaschine Im Grünen gelegene, komfortable, am Ende einer Sackgasse, helle ruhige 1-Zimmerwohnung mit separatem, eigenem Eingang. Die Wohnung wurde im Mai 2018 komplett renoviert und Neu eingerichtet. Parkplatzmöglichkeiten gibt es auf der öffentlichen Straße und sind in der Regel immer vorhanden. Die Wohnung hat einen 40 Zoll Sat-TV, eine Waschmaschine, sowie Internet (Wlan) gegen eine kleine Gebühr. Ein Bügeleisen und Bügelbrett sind ebenfalls forhanden. In der Küche finden Sie neben einem Backofen mit Cerankochfeld, eine Geschirspülmaschine, einen Kühlschrank mit 4-Sterne Gefrierfach, eine Kaffeemaschine ,Wasserkocher sowie einen Toaster. Der Schoko- “laden“ Werksverkauf der Weltberühmten Marke Ritter Sport sowie das Ritter Museum und das Ritter Museums-Café erreichen sie nach ca. 450 Meter bzw. 6 Minuten zu Fuß. Für Naturliebhaber lädt der schöne Schönbuch-Wald direkt vor der Haustüre zu Spaziergängen oder Wanderungen ein. Waldenbuch liegt am Nördlichen Rand des Waldgebiets und gleichnamigen Naturparks Schönbuch ca. 17 km südlich von Stuttgart und hat ca. 8500 Einwohner. Nach Böblingen sind es ca.14 km, nach Tübingen ca. 19 km und zur Messe Stuttgart ca. 12 km. Idyllisch im Tal gelegen strahlt Waldenbuch heute mit seinen Fachwerkhäusern, Brunnen und Staffeln im historischen Altstadtkern einen ganz besonderen Charme aus. Sowohl die Stadtkirche St. Veit mit ihrem 36 Meter hohen Kirchturm als auch das wunderschöne Schloss begeistern die Gäste. 24h Check-In nach Absprache möglich Lebensmitteldiscounter wie Lidl, DM-Drogerie-Markt, Penny Markt und Getränkemarkt erreicht man zu Fuß in ca. 5 bis 20 Minuten. Durch die ruhige aber dennoch zentrale Lage der Wohnung ist man mit dem Auto in kurzer Zeit in Stuttgart, Tübingen, Esslingen, Böblingen der Outlet-Stadt Metzingen oder Sindelfingen.
