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.


Tom Bishop
Saddam Hussain
Sean
Thork

Rooster
Hoppy
Markjo

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).

Thork

Re-voted, once reminded pizaaplanet is an admin.

I'll get used to it ... eventually.

Not only do I think this council thing is a stupid idea, I protest the fact there is no section for write-in candidates.

I also disagree with how this election is being run, as well as the lack of oversight. I also suspect Thork of stuffing the ballots.
You don't think I'm going to post here sober, do you?  ???

I have embraced my Benny Franko side. I'm sleazy.

Voting is closed and I have the results:

Tom Bishop  11
Saddam Hussain  3
Pizaaplanet  1
Junker  3
Sean  1
Thork  6
Rooster
Hoppy  1
Markjo  1
Roundy  4
Secret User  1
Ghost Spaghetti  1
beardo  1
Tsuami  5

The top 5 are:

Tom Bishop
Saddam Hussain
Thork
Roundy
Tsuami

Thanks for submitting votes, if you see that the maths might be off its because not everyone voted for 3 people and some votes were changed after people saw that admins did not want to take part.
We can now get to grips of what this council will be doing and sort the details.

We should have every council member officially post that they accept the position.
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.

We need to add something about a NASA conspiracy in this thread so Tom sees it.

Effective.  PMing them may also work.

I accept the appointment, I suppose.
That's how far the horizon is, not how far you can see.

Gee, I wonder who that was.  ::)

I accept the position.
Dr. Frank is a physicist. He says it's impossible. So it's impossible.
My friends, please remember Tom said this the next time you fall into the trap of engaging him, and thank you. :)
