EVE Online Nominates its Second CMS E-mail
Tuesday, 25 November 2008
Voting for the election of the members of the Second Council of Stellar Management has ended, and the winners have been announced. The EVE Online Council of Stellar Management, in short CMS, is a democratically elected body of representatives from the playerbase, instituted to improve the communication between the Development Team and the players.

Meet the Delegates of the Second CSM.

This has been a wild ride so far, and we have just begun. The election results have now been confirmed and we're pleased to introduce the first delegates for the new CSM:

The First Meeting

The first meeting of the Council will be held in EVE next Saturday, the 29th of November. Though the session is closed to the public, you can follow the progress and discussions on the CSM forum section where all meeting minutes will be made public.

The Council members will be flown to Iceland the weekend of January 16th to meet with CCP after having deliberated and prioritized topics raised by players. A full listing of election results may be viewed here.

Demographics and Statistics

The format of the following information is identical to the analysis of the first election, to allow for an easy comparison - we will focus on the results from the second election here, while allowing for a seperate blog to compare the two later.

There were 20112 votes cast out of a pool of 233541 eligible voters, amassing a turnout of 8,61%. Of the total votes cast, 1149 voters (5,7%) chose to abstain.

The gender difference between voters closely follow the gender difference in the subscription base, with male voters being 97.1% and female voters being 2.9% of the total voting population compared to 95.4% versus 4.6% male - female ratio of the player base.

The average age of accounts voting is 1.94 years, meaning that most votes were cast by veteran players. 41.5% of the voting accounts are veterans of two years or more whilst those veterans constitute 29% of the eligible voters.

What is clear is that the voters from Hungary are very interested in the CSM process, as 40.5% of the players from Hungary cast their votes. Icelanders are apparently interested in the CSM as well, where 13.07% of the Iceland-based voters voted.

We want to thank all of the candidates who threw their hats into the ring and gave it their all. Watching the campaigns unfold was fascinating. We also appreciate those who supported the CSM by voting. There is no way of knowing where this will lead, but we're all in it together and the promise of what we can accomplish together is astonishing.
