While CCP Leeloo has not officially launched the campaign season for the next election for the Council of Stellar Management, internet spaceship politicians are throwing their (out-of-game) hats into the ring already. So far, 23 candidates have made announcement posts in the CSM Campaigns section of the official EVE Online forums.
For the CSM 9 election held earlier this year I created a page on the blog to give some basic information about the hopefuls running for one of the fourteen slots. This year, I have a Google site, CSM Wire, created especially to display information about the CSM, its members, and elections. I kept the news up to date for about the first month of CSM 9's term, but they just did so much I couldn't keep up.
Well, I plan to start supplying the feed again this weekend. I've also created a page with candidate information that I plan to keep up to date. So far, I've pasted the announcement thread of all the candidates plus tried to get the RSS feed of the candidates' EVE-O forum posts to display. "Tried" is the operative word as the site is not entirely reliable. I believe the problem is the feed is timing out. I may wind up also providing the direct link to the RSS page. I know that works as I've tested the link in IE, Firefox, and Chrome.
If anyone has any ideas on what I should cover, leave a suggestion in the comments. This year I have a bit of time to prepare something a little more useful than last year. Just don't go overboard, because I still want to play EVE a couple of hours a week. The CSM takes up a lot of time, even if all one does is cover the news.
