I really should post here more. But you know how it is, when you don’t have anything in particular to say.
Anyhoo, The election is here, and I thought it would be worth name checking a few people who you should consider having on your ballot. Of course, the first person should be me, Steve Ronuken. I’d be an idiot to say otherwise. But if you decide that you prefer someone else, just stick me somewhere lower down. Every little helps.
I’m not going to be listing positions on the ballot (other than me first 😉 ), because you should vote for people who you think will represent your space and play style best. So someone in Wormholes should probably have Corbexxx second on the list, where as someone in Low should have Sugar Kyle. I’m going to keep the blurbs pretty short, but I do suggest looking them up some more in other media. Shamelessly lifted from Sugar’s blog:
- CCP Leeloo’s Spreadsheet
- Cap Stable Interviews
- Nosy Gamer’s CSM Wire
- Just for Crits Low Sec Interviews
- Foo’s TL;DR
Vote for me, please 🙂 This term’s been great for getting stuff out to the third-party community, then onto everyone else. And industry is in a healthier (if not perfect) place than it used to be. More to do though. Next term, I’m expecting to see more coming out for CREST, which can be a real game changer.
As has been stated by pretty much every other candidate, Sugar’s been doing a wonderful job on CSM 9. Approachable, diligent, and a hard worker. She’s not one for drama either, which I’m a fan of. While she’s spending her time mostly in lowsec, she’s got a good head on her shoulders, and a good understanding of other spaces.
Not the most prolific writer, but a good communicator, and always going to the wider community for feedback and research.
Some people talk about helping the community. Bam’s involved in it. Just look at Eve Down Under. I think he’s going to be useful. Sure, he’s in PL, but you can’t have everything.
NPSI is important. Jayne’s been a good representative for it. He’s a touch abrasive, but a chunk of that comes from not suffering fools gladly. NPSI leads to better player retention, as it draws people into wider social groups, and more activities.
Another candidate with good lowsec (FW in this case) experience. And has just branched into wormholes 🙂 Which is handy, for an alternate viewpoint. And Lore!
Psianh’s a mercenary. And a trainer of mercenaries. I think that brings a useful perspective.
BNI Education, Recruiting and HR. Newbies are important. Cagali² has to work with them on a regular basis. And a degree of nullsec experience is handy, from the non-incumbent perspective.
I have this terrible feeling I’m missing someone. Anyway, go vote (when it opens). You don’t need to fill in all the positions, but do at least 5.
