CSM focus group accepting applications

2004-02-06 - Por Svarthol

The Council of Stellar Management (CSM) is a focus group comprised of members of the Eve Online team and invited delegates from the playerbase. It is our goal to have a nice cross-section of playstyles represented.

The group meets each Wednesday at 14:00 GMT/9 am Eastern. The sessions last for 6 weeks, then a new group of delegates is chosen. Delegates are sometimes personally selected by the devs based on forum feedback or quality bug reports. The group breaks down as a representative from 3 large, 3 medium-sized and 3 small corps. We also invite 2 freelancers and a press person. The group of twelve is a nice, manageable size, allowing everyone the opportunity to join in the discussion without having to moderate the channel.

Anyone who is interested in serving as a delegate to the CSM should e-mail me (no Eve mails, please) and let me know. It would be most helpful if you would include the following information in your message:

  • Your character name
  • The name and e-mail address of your CEO, if you are not the CEO of your corporation
  • The name of your corporation
  • The primary focus of your corp (ie trading, pvp, roleplaying, etc.)- the same goes for freelancers, and please specify that you are a freelancer
  • If you are a press representative, please give the URL for your news or fan site

It is important that we limit the size of the group, so if you are not selected this time, there's a good chance you might be chosen for one of the future sessions.

The day and time are non-negotiable. We must be sure that the chat fits into the devs' schedules. If you know that you would not be able to attend these chats at the appointed time, please don't ask to be appointed to the delegation. Allow someone else who can be there to fill the spot. You can always suggest questions or topics to them.

Please feel free to contact me if you have questions or would like more information.
