CSM Participation Reward Program
As an incentive to get new players to take part in the CSM, I have created a system to reward them and by taking part in the CSM and posting in this thread they will be made eligable. Included in this thread is an brief introduction to the CSM and the important dates for this year's election.




CSM Spotlight, in no particular order
I will randomly cycle through candidates who have supplied me with a blurb

Ali Aras
I remember being new; that's why I'm running for CSM. I want more people in this crazy game, creating content and making life interesting. We’ll get this if we give newbies better tools to survive. When I first started, I quit after being canflipped because I didn’t understand the game. I fell in love later when I resubbed with friends who taught me to PVP with cheap frigates. I got my first kill with their help and gained the resilience to survive the harsh universe of EVE. The newbie experience should include that kind of moment, giving everyone a foundation to work from and broaden their comfort zone.

Korvin
Former CSM4 forcing small fixes to happen.
Former CSM5 initiating a game balance changes.
Russian candidate with a platform to focus CCP attention to solo players and small player group needs.

Awol Aurix
I'm Awol Aurix and the reason I'm running for CSM 8 is to keep this game we all love fun and interesting. While most of my game experience is with null sec I follow whats going on in all places of Eve. If elected my main focus will be game mechanics that need looking at to make them useful and less tedious for the players.


Rewards
Pilots who take part in this program may be eligible for rewards, the details of which are listed in the posts below.
Rewards will be paid out to eligible pilots in order of their posts until my stocks or isk runs out.
Please be patient with rewards as it takes some time to separate skills from large stacks and put into cans, and I am currently working on a another full time project in Real Life.



Update and Program Redesign
Due to less than expected participation and the fact that I've been nominated as a referral more than anyone else, I have redesigned the program. To balance these changes I have started making donations to corps and alliances that matched my original rulesets, removed the restriction on the nomination and issue rewards, increased the amount I donate to the newer players, and will compensate those older players who had already taken part in the now defunct options.


Thanks to the following for Donations!
Eve Online Hold'em, CaldariPrimePonyClub, Peter Powers (Wallet Feed), Dierdra Vaal (Vote Match), Dusky Dark (Russian Translation), Steve Ronuken (Donation), Del DelVechio (Donation), Mike Azariah(Promotion), Bluemelon (Donation).


Player Survey - Active during csm voting
The following survey is ancillary to this thread but I hope you will take part. Your personal details or choices will not be made public, although the final results will. Players who take part in this survey and supply their in-game character names may be eligible for further rewards, details on this can be found in the fourth post below.

    WHAT IS THE CSM? [more info]
    The Council of Stellar Management (also known as the CSM) is a player-elected council who are expected to represent the views of the Eve Online playerbase to CCP Games.


    WHAT DOES THE CSM DO? [more info]
    CSM members discuss society interests during informal and formal meetings which they then present to CCP. The particulars and transparency of these meetings, and what is brought to CCP's attention is up to the CSM (and sometimes individual members) and often varies with each elected council. Members are free to put in as much time and effort as they see fit.


    WHEN DOES VOTING START? [more info]
    • 22nd - 3rd of March - Pre-Election: All eligible candidates must receive at least 200 votes in this pre-election to continue on.

    • The Full Elections for CSM8 have been delayed 1 day to allow for the qualified candidates to regroup after the Pre-election. The Election will now run from April 4th till midnight on April 18th

    • 27th of April - The results are made public


    WHO CAN VOTE
    Anyone with an active character older than 30 days is eligible to vote for their chosen candidate(s), but you can only vote with one character per account. Your vote(s) are not disclosed to the public, and no-one will know if you have voted, or who for.


    HOW DO I VOTE
    Once voting is open you will be able to visit a page on the Eve website which lists all the eligible candidates, along with a short description of their platform and links to any websites or blogs they have.

    • Pre-Election: Eligible voters can place a single vote to their chosen candidate.
    • Full Election: Eligible voters fill out a 14 person preference list, which will be tallied using an STV voting system.


    WHO DO I VOTE FOR? [more info]
    That is entirely up to you. Most candidates post a thread on the Eve Online sub forum Jita Park Speakers Corner, and the majority have their own websites and blogs that will help you decide. You can also abstain.

    Some players offer tools to help you find candidates who have similar goals to you, like the CSM Vote Match run by Dierdra Vaal. After answering a series of questions Vote Match will supply you with a list of candidates that best match your answers:



    WHO NORMALLY GETS ELECTED? [CSM7][CSM6][CSM5][CSM4][CSM3][CSM2][CSM1]
    Historically each CSM is heavily populated with experienced players from large Alliances whom are often much more organised at gathering votes than independent candidates. Null sec space is usually the represented the most, then lowsec and high. Successful candidates come from all over the world, supporting a wide range of player styles and groups (although often disproportionately), and atleast one or two comedy/ troll candidates get a seat.

    The Following Rewards are for 30 - 90 day old characters Only




    Participation Reward
    Read this thread and take part in the CSM by either voting, abstaining or engaging the candidates.
    Post your support for this program so that I can verify your age and I will donate isk to help you buy books or a ship.


    Issue/ Concern Bonus Reward
    If you have a legitimate concern or issue specifically relating to new players that you'd like brought to the attention to the CSM post it in this thread and I'll make sure they see it. If your post gets more than 10 upvotes I will reward you by increasing any donation you are already due, and if you get more than 50 upvotes I will increase it again.


    New Player Friendly Corporation Reward
    Nominate your favorite corporation or Non-Profit organisation that is welcoming to new players and not associated with corporations or alliances with global influence and large bank balances.

    The two highest nominated entities will receive a donation to support their new player fund.


    Survey Participation Reward
    30 to 90 day old players who have posted in this thread and have taken part in at least one of my surveys will receive the following skill pack or enough isk to buy them (they will need to include their character name on the last page of the survey so I can verify their age):

    Quote:

    As it takes some time to make up these skill packs there may be a delay between taking the survey and receiving the books and I may send isk instead if I am short on time. If you receive one of these skill packs and you find that there are some you don't need, donate them to a corp member or player in your local that does.

    Corporation Nomination: Eve University

    Issue or Concern: I've been playing eve for a month or so now but am finding it difficult to locate resources that help me to figure out what skills I need to train and what roles I can fill. It would be neat if there was a page on the Eve website that offered a list of common roles pilots chose, along with associated ships to fly and skills to train.

    I'm sure if someone would like to donate one I could randomly pick someone from this thread to win it, might even be you. Considering I am probably going to have the most posts however, odds say it would be me :3

    Failing that, could you make me a custom Sabre skin? The Brutix was nice, but Sabres are way cooler.
