This year, all applicants were required to provide a campaign message in order to limit the number of players wasting time with blank campaigns. Despite this new requirement, many of this year's applicants have clearly made little or no effort to state their cases. With this year's voting likely to be dominated by politically motivated candidates and experienced CSM members, players who make very little effort are highly unlikely to get a seat on the council. Several of the people in this list could be alliance candidates and may not have put much effort into their campaign because they're assured of a seat through organised voting.

If any of these pilots steps up his or her campaign to something more active, please let me know via the comments at the end of this article.
