Topic: General Coordinator and Technical Coordinator Elections 2016

The summer moon wanes as it heralds the coming equinox, and with the marking of time, according to the Phoenix Rules, June is the time of year for General Coordinator & Technical Coordinator Elections. Hence we gather in this solemn place to determine whom shall lead us into the next year.

The process will flow as following: 
Nominations June 13th - June 27th
Campaigning June 28 - July 11th
Voting July 12th - July 19th

Thus I hereby declare the nominating process open. If you know someone you feel would be an excellent General Coordinator or Technical Coordinator, make their name known! The nominee may then accept or refuse the nomination. Nominees must make their intentions known before June 27th. Good fortune to those chosen.

Re: General Coordinator and Technical Coordinator Elections 2016

I nominate both Misty Diamond and Mike Palmer for General Coordinator.

Re: General Coordinator and Technical Coordinator Elections 2016

Misty Diamond and Zuzutoo as GC.

Euan Reid as TC.

Happy to accept my nomination smile

Re: General Coordinator and Technical Coordinator Elections 2016

I wish to nominate Ironette.

Re: General Coordinator and Technical Coordinator Elections 2016

I am humbled by Euan's nomination for GC, but I admit serious concerns about my tech skills and whether they are up to the task.  It is my opinion that I know just enough to make me dangerous.

I humbly  accept Silent's nomination, and I am super excited! I wish all my fellow candidates great luck.

No tech skills really needed for GC, Mike, just enough to be dangerous wink

~totally isn't a fan of having many quality candidates in every race~

Re: General Coordinator and Technical Coordinator Elections 2016

That is encouraging Euan.  If it is possible to be able to draw on the support of those who know the ropes, I'm willing to take a stab at it.

For clarity, when nominating folks please designate the position you are nominating folks for. I know most are going for GC, but it never hurts to be clear. Thanks!

Great nominations. I'd like to add ksabers for GC.

Re: General Coordinator and Technical Coordinator Elections 2016

With so many nominations of strong, tech-saavy people, I am going to withdraw my name from consideration for GC.  I will instead put all my efforts into making Kestrel a strong sim for active players.

My sincere thanks to all those who encouraged and supported me during the nominating process.

God bless,

Mike

Sorry. Thanks for letting me know.

Re: General Coordinator and Technical Coordinator Elections 2016

I echo all the above nominations, and weep that Mike has declined his. You would be an excellent GC, Mike. smile

I would also like to nominate Dale 'SoapyMac' for GC and Giorgio 'Ksabers' for TC.

And well done and thank you to all the candidates who will run and those nominating candidates. It's so good we can participate in community democracy like this here. smile

Re: General Coordinator and Technical Coordinator Elections 2016

Thanks Ash, you are very kind.  I appreciate all the comments of support.

As I said, though, I'll just keep on working on Kestrel to make it the leading sim at Phoenix... just like Prinz Eugen of old.  :-)

Euan and Gio, thank you both! After some debating and deliberation (mostly in my head and after sciworld yesterday), I have decided to accept the nomination.

While posting right now is difficult, I would like to accept the GC Nomination smile

Re: General Coordinator and Technical Coordinator Elections 2016

I was. Wasn't sure of the last name. Thanks.

Re: General Coordinator and Technical Coordinator Elections 2016

Yes, I did nominate Rebecca for GC. Sorry for not being clearer.

Re: General Coordinator and Technical Coordinator Elections 2016

Sorry for my delay in replying. And thanks to Deb for the GC nomination and to Ash for the TC nomination. I really would like to have enough time to fulfill these duties if elected, but unfortunately this is not the case, so I am forced to decline both.
