Eve CSM voting

Guys... please vote - its a good way of targetting how you want EVE to develop. I have already voted with my 2 accounts (for 2 different individuals both who I think will improve the CSM).

Now I know others have commented on this... but basically:
Don't vote cause they are in your corp
Don't vote cause they want a free holiday

What REALLY gets my goat on this is the amount of candidates without a campaign website or blog. Fair enuogh I COULD trawl the Eve online forums for this BUT... a blog/campaign website surely is the best way to get the message across. Put bluntly for furture reference CSM folks, if you don't have a website/campaign setup, you ain't going to get a vote from me.

Next year I have decided I WILL be running for the CSM personally. This year I'm not, as to too many of you I'll be too new a character/too new in the blogosphere... and I already have some campaign ideas. But I'm not going to blog about them until the website is setup and I'm confirmed as a candidate.

CSM represents a big time commitment, and is not something I'll be taking lightly (as personally I'll earn less real world money as the time I spend doing CSM commitments will conflict with my IT related overtime etc work!). Before that I may actually publish some information about myself and what I do in real life - and why I believe I'd therefore make an excellent CSM candidate.

It's impossible to take seriously any candidate who can't even manage to put up a blog and post regularly in a venue much easier to digest than the forums. *sigh*. Oh well, they didn't get my vote either.

Looking forward to what you eventually present in support of a potential CSM bid.
