CSM 14 has been elected!
Greetings, Citizens of New Eden,
After almost two months of hard work from all the CSM candidates, we have finally reached the culmination of this year’s elections and announced new council members at EVE North. Please join me in welcoming your 14th Council of Stellar Management that is going to represent your needs and help steer EVE Online towards a brighter future for the next 12 months.
This year we saw a total of 32994 unique votes received which is a 12% increase from the last election. This is good news, but we honestly believe that we can do much better and will be trying to implement additional incentives and improvements in the future to keep that number on the rise.
There is an important call out that I would like to make. We have identified a single vote that has been cast on a character outside of the CSM 14 ballot. To ensure there was no malicious activity we have investigated the situation and are happy to share that there is no reason to suspect any wrongdoing. Since this should not have been possible in the first place we will investigate if there is an easy way to prevent this from happening in the future.
The next few weeks are going to be dedicated to onboarding of all CSM members. It is an important period where we will go over all the ground rules and ensure we are on the same page in terms of expectations from one another. Therefore, even if the new council is in immediate effect, please be reasonable with your requests and understand that it may take a few weeks before everyone is up to speed.
