Thread for talking about council nominations.
« on: December 09, 2013, 09:09:57 PM »
Sean as my post said I chose those 4 guys because they talk to people about FET all the time. I had trouble thinking of 5 members tbh. I couldn't imagine trying to decide on more.
I'd of rather just said Tom and Thork but 5 names was the request.

I don't think you have to nominate 5. And hoppy is literally the worst. An even worse idea than Thork and you. Well, maybe not you.

You know what. I like the idea of a council. But I don't think we have enough of the right people yet. Take myself for instance, I'm far too opinionated to work as a group. I'd be honoured to do it and I'm a member too. But perhaps not the best suited.
But everyone has their faults, I could point out negative points about each candidate as to why they wouldn't be suitable.
But we will have a council and you have your vote to choose who you want to see on it. If it fails then so be it. But I'm backing it and it appears you are too. Lets see how it goes. If a member isn't working out then they should understand that they will be replaced with a more suitable candidate.

I just picked people who do things. wiki, art, write stuff. I'm only interested in having people who will get stuff done and make the site a success.
Someone nominated Markjo for instance. I have never seen him draw a single diagram. Never volunteered to help with anything. Just likes to criticise with repetitive one liners. I'm not interetested in an RE balance. just that those who get stuff done can go get stuff done. If its a good panel, I don't care if I'm on it or not.

This is why I will not run for council.  I don't want to get stuff done in the name of The Flat Earth.  Too much damn work.
If you are going to DebOOonK an expert then you have to at least provide a source with credentials of equal or greater relevance. Even then, it merely shows that some experts disagree with each other.

Thork is right. It should be for those who make that extra effort.

I am not too sure about Roundy at this point. I'm afraid he is not fully converted to the dark side...

Parsifal expressed he has no desire to be a part of the council.  Not sure about PP.  Unless he doesn't want to, I don't see any reason to exclude admins.  Unless there are concerns about conflict of interest.

I support Secret User.  She's another one who was seriously slighted on John Davis's list.

My friends, please remember Tom said this the next time you fall into the trap of engaging him, and thank you. :)

Did the old Council achieve, or did they merely Judge? In my experience it was certainly the latter, except for that which happened in the times before my arrival or more aptly my participation, leaving out the select few. Thork has much better standards for the list than perhaps the site before us, but(eeww I ate a sticker) the standards do not reflect the majority of the council's membership.

I don't think the old council did anything other than determine who got into FEB, and I don't know how much of that they wound up actually doing.

There was an old council?  I thought the "leaders" were basically Daniel, Whilmore, and John.  All of which did whatever Daniel allowed them to do.

Can we have the poll this Saturday? Run it for a week if needs be. There's no need to drag this out for longer now.

Why not kick it off now and let it run over the entire weekend?
