Flat Earth Community / Re: Zetetic Council Election Thread.
« on: December 15, 2013, 01:31:31 AM »
In the event of a tie we will vote for them individually and this may prolong the election but will be done a swiftly as possible.

All numbers will be posted in this thread some time after midnight on Wednesday (I am at work that night so I cant guarantee what time I will be able to contribute).

I have added a 'poll' in flat earth general as the topic is more suited there.
I could not decide what format to put it in. You will see what I chose to do and I hope it suits everyone. I suggested 3 votes each to avoid ties. There shouldnt be a need to vote for all 5 members anyway, this way you can vote for the best people.
Another idea I was going to run by was to just add up the numbers from the nominations. That also was a reasonable option.
I also didnt submit my own name as votes are coming to me. bit of a shame because I would of liked to of taken part, maybe next time eh.

Flat Earth Community / Zetetic Council Election Thread.
« on: December 15, 2013, 01:25:54 AM »
The poll is now closed.

The following names have all received nominations for a place on the Zetetic Council.
To vote you need to select 3 people from the list and private message them to me.
Because I will hold all nominations I have excluded my self from the election. You will send me 3 names and 5 people with the highest number of votes will be voted in as council members.
The 5 selected members will run a term of 6 months. In that 6 months a solid definition of the council will be written and their agenda. Future voting and elections will also be discussed.
This will be a temporary placement for the next 6 months for all council members. But I am confident that in 6 months time the newly elected members will likely consist of the same members anyway. All further details will be discussed in public by the council and other members of the society.

Please only select 1 to 3 people from the following list and submit your votes to me via a private message. Please do not discuss who you voted for until after the members are elected. Voting closes on Wednesday the 18th of December 2013 at 23:00 GMT any votes after that time will not be counted.

Ghost Spaghetti*

I nominate beardo and Chris.   :)
I am presuming Chris is Ghost Spaghetti.

Ok. When I get to my computer I will set this up.

If there are no objections. I can take the voting to the next phase. Before I'd proceed though I will run things by you all. Tell me to slow down if you like but I prefer actions to words. I have an idea to keep things secret and fair too. Let me know what you think and I can run through the details.

Flat Earth Community / Moon shrimp data
« on: December 14, 2013, 07:32:55 AM »
So caught the news this morning and a Chinese bot will land on the moon at some point today. Question is; will they find moon shrimp evidence or will it be seen as another hoax. I look forward to the news images they release. Lets hope they do, I can't wait to see what the conspiracy theorists point out in the images this time. Thing is if the last one was such an obvious hoax, then why would the bbc even show it on the news?! Who's getting paid off and if the hoax was so obvious then why is it still on the news?

How can that be modified? I wonder if a forum section can be made so only people who have been a member for x amount of months can see it. The votes can take place there.

How about the first election be for a provisional council with a 6 month term and then when the duties and responsibilities become better defined, you can have long term council elections.


Something like that sounds fair. Need to simplify it though I'd think. I'd say that all members should have to re-elect. I can't see a large change each time tbh. There needs to be a fail safe in place though. With the current system there would be no stopping a load of people joining and electing each other and making a mockery if the FES.

We are also nominating spokes people for the FES who will support it. Not people to run a forum. Forum staff and the council will or should be 2 different entities and should not be so closely related.

We all know the characters we have nominated though. That shouldn't be an issue. The council will have little power at all anyway and details can be discussed with the new council and the forum admins. The first job of the council can be to set the guides for its purpose. I don't think we need to delay this and it will be good to have it for Xmas.
A thread was made for nomination discussions and nobody stated they did not want to be included.

A pm was sent strait after I posted that. I'm on it  ;)

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.

Legislation says nobody can own space. Bet it's not really the case though.

This is my thoughts on the matter. It did claim that they will experience zero g. I bet that will be fun.
Makes me wonder though if a deodorant can put 4 guys into space then why cant a company that is made for putting people into space not manage it?!

UK posters must of heard of this before. Lynx had a promotion to send 4 people into space.
Here is the official website:

One of the guys is from my town, that's why it is of interest.
This is the article from my local rag:

Dunno if this will spark some debate at all.

We have a FES chat room on my mumble now. Its on 24/7, if people want a more private area they can, it might not be to everyone's tastes but its always up anyway.

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