I want to make this post so people who don’t already know what the Council of Stellar Management (CSM) is can learn what it is.
The synopsis appears to be that a group of 10 EVE Online players are elected to cooperate with CCP Games and have a chance help them develop the game. These council members collect information and opinions from the players - as well as their own thoughts and feelings - and direct them to developers’ attention. To do so, these members will have online meetings with CCP developers, and possibly meet in person (e.g. in Iceland). Members of the CSM usually serve their time for twelve months. Benefits of being a member of include Omega Clone status for one account, free admission to EVE Online events, and (of course) the awesome opportunity to work for CCP Games.
I had never heard of the Council of Stellar Management until I joined these forums and looked through the thread topics and saw it. When I wanted to learn what it was, I searched the internet for “council of stellar management eve online” and immediately found an official page for it within the eveonline.com domain. I would love to be part of the CSM myself.
Here is the link to the main page for the CSM.
