Dear voters,

Please welcome your new CSM!

For those not familiar with the CSM, they are a player-elected representative body for the players to CCP. CSM members are involved in ongoing discussions with developers about the game and future changes being planned, bringing both community feedback and expert opinions. The council is also flown out to CCP Iceland twice a year for a multi-day summit with the development teams. To learn more about the CSM, head here.

Now lets take a closer look at the numbers…

Here are the votes and the python code to run them.

There are some irregularities that we want to explain to both save you time and ease worries.

Last night when we announced the results on Twitch we gave you the total number of unique votes cast which is 29417.

In the audit log which has the results of the vote calculation you'll see another number for total votes, 29226 which is 191 votes less.

190 of those were votes of voters who voted only for for Chreecher Virpio who was recently removed from the ballot. Those votes get eliminated out as they have nowhere to go. Everyone else who voted for him and had other choices behind him have their votes counted.

That leaves us with 1 missing vote and that was a single-candidate vote for a character that is not on the ballot. Candidates on the ballot of course shouldn't be able to end up in the votes database so we've investigated potential causes and the possibility of more malicious activity, and have found no reason to suspect anything else happened that affected the results of the safety of the election in any way. Only logged-in Omegas can generate valid votes and each account can only generate one vote.

Our suspicion right now is that someone found a way to edit the contents of their one vote, thus invalidating it.

Additionally, two multi-candidate votes were cast where one of the characters in that combination wasn't on the ballot either. In those cases the votes for the other candidates are counted as valid. We believe the cause is the same as the one above.

But we have a CSM and you have numbers to play with if you are so inclined. Have a great weekend and thank you for voting.

If you wish to comment you can do so in this thread.


  1. One thing I would really like to say is that often before getting more laptop or computer memory, look into the machine in which it will be installed. Should the machine is actually running Windows XP, for instance, the particular memory threshold is 3.25GB. Putting in greater than this would merely constitute a waste. Make sure that one’s motherboard can handle the upgrade amount, as well. Thanks for your blog post.

  2. Thanks for discussing your ideas listed here. The other matter is that any time a problem develops with a laptop or computer motherboard, people today should not have some risk associated with repairing the item themselves because if it is not done properly it can lead to permanent damage to the full laptop. In most cases, it is safe just to approach a dealer of a laptop with the repair of the motherboard. They’ve got technicians who may have an know-how in dealing with notebook computer motherboard troubles and can have the right diagnosis and carry out repairs.

  3. I have really learned some new things as a result of your website. One other thing I’d like to say is the fact newer laptop or computer os’s usually allow a lot more memory to be used, but they as well demand more storage simply to run. If a person’s computer cannot handle more memory along with the newest application requires that memory space increase, it might be the time to buy a new Personal computer. Thanks

  4. Great blog post. What I would like to make contributions about is that laptop memory needs to be purchased when your computer can’t cope with anything you do with it. One can add two RAM memory boards of 1GB each, by way of example, but not one of 1GB and one with 2GB. One should always check the maker’s documentation for own PC to be sure what type of memory space is essential.

  5. Thanks for your publication. I also think laptop computers have grown to be more and more popular nowadays, and now tend to be the only kind of computer used in a household. The reason being at the same time potentially they are becoming more and more cost-effective, their working power keeps growing to the point where they can be as robust as desktop computers through just a few years back.

  6. A few things i have observed in terms of computer system memory is the fact there are specifications such as SDRAM, DDR and many others, that must go with the requirements of the mother board. If the personal computer’s motherboard is kind of current while there are no main system issues, improving the storage space literally normally requires under 1 hour. It’s on the list of easiest computer upgrade types of procedures one can visualize. Thanks for expressing your ideas.

  7. I have really learned some new things through your weblog. One other thing I’d really like to say is always that newer pc os’s are likely to allow a lot more memory to be used, but they likewise demand more ram simply to operate. If people’s computer is not able to handle a lot more memory and also the newest software package requires that memory space increase, it is usually the time to shop for a new Laptop. Thanks

  8. The things i have seen in terms of computer system memory is that often there are features such as SDRAM, DDR etc, that must fit the specific features of the mother board. If the pc’s motherboard is fairly current and there are no operating system issues, changing the memory space literally requires under a couple of hours. It’s on the list of easiest computer upgrade processes one can think about. Thanks for expressing your ideas.

  9. One thing is always that one of the most frequent incentives for applying your cards is a cash-back as well as rebate offer. Generally, you’ll receive 1-5% back upon various expenses. Depending on the card, you may get 1% back on most purchases, and 5% again on buying made using convenience stores, filling stations, grocery stores and ‘member merchants’.
