I know the current CSM 9 term still has 5 months and change left to run, however it has been asked in recent weeks, most notably during EVE Vegas as to my intetions regarding CSM 10.
I will NOT be running for a third consecutive term as part of CSM 10. That’s not to say I will not attempt to run again in the future, but I will certainly not be running for CSM 10.
Tl;dr of why is I want to play eve again. I want to login to do more than answer EVE mails or FC / Admin Ganked. I was elected to CSM 8 on the back of massive name recognition (Single largest number of votes regardless of ballot position) and a huge level of activity in RvB. I barely scraped onto CSM 9 – and while folks have assured me it was down to voter assumption I was a lock, I am working on the idea that my visibility where it matters was not sufficient.
Its time I did more to reinvigorate my EVE experience, and that of others both inside and outside of RvB. So many projects I want to get off the ground. Things I cannot do while CSMing and working heavily in RL. Somethings gotta give, in this case my career in Space Politics has to make way for actually playing with spaceships.
I will for the rest of my term as a CSM member continue to represent you all to the best of my abilities, just after that, its time to shoot you all instead.
