Congratulations tonight to those who were announced as being the first batch of representatives in the reinvigorated Council of Stellar Management.
The turnout was predictably quite poor (11% of EVE accounts registered their vote, compared to 56% of the eligible population who voted in the last US presidential election – a similarly pointless endevor :), but the results are no less interesting, with the two leading candidates both being seasoned role-players. Remember EVE is a game where role-playing is a minority pastime.
Ironic too that the first CSM chairperson, Jade Constantine – possibly now the most influential single person among the player community – is the exact same person who was served an EVE ASBO and gagged for years from posting on the forums.
I can’t help but want to break into a line from a great Half-Man Half Biscuit song: “La la la Lech Wałęsa”.
