Hahah ... warcouncil?

Question#1: Do development/in development sections get to participate.

Question#2: Do members have to be 365 days BEFORE the elections start, or do they have to be 365 during/before the end of elections.

1. We detemined 73 possible nominiees among the development games, so we will run one nominee thread and pick the top 2. This can change each election based on the number of people in development games.


2.When we are counting the nominations we will be looking at the time in membership, so if I had to clarify that, I would say 1 year by the time we start counting nominations.

No, the last time was 2005, your thinking of our first election in 2004 when we were newbies to this concept.

very cool, very democratic, like to hear this. However, I don't understand why you have to nominate members from your section, and cannot nominate anyone? Is it so its easier to keep track of nominations?

It provides fairness across the board. Every section gets a say by putting one of their own in the ballot. It brings out good people that other section may not have known about. It also cuts down on the influence of larger sections taking it over. Think of the section like each state who all then compete nationally until you have one winner.

I'm sorry but why does the Lt.Gen. who is elected by the people get to do Sweet fuck all? Can't view any sensitive material such as JA reports and the likes? why is this? It seems that this position is essentially a useless tag meant to appease all the people crying for Democracy. KT is the only real meaningful Lt.Gen. in this new system.

Seems a bit of a waste of a tag to me, I'd rather see you admins pick another person, and give them full rights, than have a useless admin.

Actually, the only admins that currently have access to the JA forums are those in the JA department and the 5 Stars. No other admins have access, so it isnt like we are singling this position out. You make it sound like the only purpose of getting the position is to gain access to that area. There is alot more to in than that. Last I checked, we have 5 other departments and over 60 game sections to keep them involved with.

Oh noes, another popularity contest O_O

And you slammed the triple whammie on me when you disqualify people with points against them in the last 12 months, previously DD'd, and must be a member for 365 days. HarshSauce.

Well, I hope this election goes better than the previous one that sticks out in my mind. Good ol' poll haxxing Boyle

I know I qualify but I am not going to bother because I do not have the popularity votes even if I campaign well
