I also take this opportunity to draw everyone's attention - particularly players who haven't yet had the benefit of serving the Phoenix community in an admin capacity - to this thread in Management, and to note that elected officials have the power to appoint deputies and officers to particular projects, so for example if you're new to the site but have had your leadership and service giftings recognised by a nomination in this thread, you might consider running for office and appointing a deputy to counsel you while you get up to speed on the site's admin panel, rules, or the like.

In short, please do not feel put off on grounds of inexperience.

Re: GC/TC Nominations 2013

I accept my nomination for General Coordinator.

Re: GC/TC Nominations 2013

My RL entanglements would not allow me the time to perform as a reasonable GC this year. I must very respectfully decline. However next year I may give Ash a run for his money. tongue

I would also second the nominations of Silent, Jason, Robert and Amanda.

Re: GC/TC Nominations 2013

Would you be prepared to stay as Deputy if I am re-elected?

Re: GC/TC Nominations 2013

I might actually do a better job this time around.

Re: GC/TC Nominations 2013

Hmm, what would happen if I accepted nominations for both GC and TC? Do the rules account for that?

Re: GC/TC Nominations 2013

Only limitation I can see is on an incumbent EVC:

Rules and Responsibilities - Section IV wrote:

Article 9. The incumbent EVC may not run for a position other than EVC in elections.

We should probably change that. Something along the lines of "A member may not run for two Coordinator positions simultaneously", perhaps? (Carefully worded so someone can run for GC/TC, and should they fail still be eligible for EVC)

Re: GC/TC Nominations 2013

Yes, we probably should change that.

Re: GC/TC Nominations 2013

Or maybe more appropriately that someone may not run for more than 1 position and may not hold more than 1 coordinator position. Just a trick of wording there, someone could be the EVC and say "hey look, I'm not running for more than 1 position, I just already have a position". Darned loopholes...

We need to prevent loophole vipers from coming in and laying eggs...

Re: GC/TC Nominations 2013

Well there's my answer about fitting in...

Thanks for the nomination, but RL is a mean, nasty, unforgiving b!^ch. Thus I must respectfully, regretfully decline for this year.

PS. Believe you me that the RL in the above-mentioned comment does not mean Robert Longtin.  lol

Why did Suzy fall out of the swing?  Because she had no arms.
Knock, knock. Who's there?
Not Suzy

Re: GC/TC Nominations 2013

And thus perhaps we should change the elections so that GC and TC are not elected at exactly the same time.

But since there isn't any specific rule preventing it, I'll accept both nominations. This could be interesting!  cool

Re: GC/TC Nominations 2013

I encourage you to, actually. I think when we worked on the original draft of the election rules, I was actually quite happy with the idea of a GC who is also a capable tech wizard holding both positions. The provision of Deputies and projects delegated to Officers means that if for any reason a GCTC was unavailable, the work of both offices would continue.

If Jason won both the GC and TC election, I can't see a legal reason why he can't serve his term as both.

Ash

Edit: A current legal reason. We might pass a well-worded rule down the line that keeps people from holding more than one Coordinator office at a time, but at the moment, it's legal.

Silent Hunter
Jason Andersen
Robert 'RLongtin' Longtin
Nick Buchanan
Amanda Bond

Apparently I am now proof of how easy it is to miss things in a post when not expecting to see them, as I've only just noticed this, and that was because Andy alerted me to it.  I think my flabber is gasted, or possibly my gast is flabbered.  Cliche though it sounds, this is a complete surprise and I am very flattered, as well as flabbered, or perhaps gasted. 

I don't know very well what the procedure is and I would be one of those inexperienced people Ash mentions here.  I am a comparatively unknown quantity to most people here as well, so I'm not sure I feel I'd be up to the huge task of GC.  However, I'd still like to help, so thank you Ash and I'll be over on the aforementioned thread.  Someone needs a pet pedant, right?

Re: GC/TC Nominations 2013

I'm very flattered that Ash nominated me for the TC role.
I'll probably need some help getting started, but I am willing to accept my nomination to serve as Technical Coordinator if required. Since I've started there have been very few days that I haven't checked the forum at least once. So I should be able to materialise the time from somewhere...

Re: GC/TC Nominations 2013

After some consideration on my part, I'm going to accept my nomination for TC. Consideration specifically as regards whether I'd have time to devote to the role, as I'm probably going to be fairly busy - but I think, on due reflection, I will have the time. And a partial beta of Phoenix 2.0.

-Euan

Re: GC/TC Nominations 2013

I also accept my nomination as TC

Re: GC/TC Nominations 2013

Officially too late to accept, but that does not matter, since I must decline my nomination as well, although I am grateful to have been nominated.

My current positions leave me busy enough and I am still planning on expanding the newsletter (although those plans are also on hold until I get things in RL sorted, like buying a house and all that).

Anyway, I'd just thought even though the deadline has been passed I'd post this to keep you all updated.
