Yep, it's that time of year again
For any of our more recent members not familiar with what this is, or even our old members that have understandably forgotten, it's time to elect an arbiter for another year term.
What is an arbiter, you say? I'm glad you asked
! If that wasn't clear enough, just ask any of our previous arbiters what they did during their term. Here's one now! Hey Stracius, what did you do for your two terms as arbiter?
"Twiddled my thumbs."
What, that's it?
"Yep, pretty much."
Why, you're useless! How did you get re-elected?
"Homemade chocolate chip cookies with a sprinkle of chicanery. It's great in coffee, too."
Oh, well that makes sense.
Now then, on to the details. Everyone has a chance to reply to this thread with any member or members - new or old, though preferably somewhat active - they wish to nominate for the position; you may nominate up to two people (but not the same person twice!). Once a member has received two nominations they will be automatically entered as a candidate, i.e. any attempt to nominate someone who's already received two is redundant and will be thus ignored.
After about a week I will be making a new thread where each candidate must respond with information about themselves, including favorite websites, movies, and whether or not they enjoy long walks on the beach (Pics or it didn't happen!).
Following this will be a thread dedicated to voting for the monk^H^H^Hember to be arbiter.
Have at it!
P.S. Yes this is for a ONE year term. As I stated last time this was brought up for consideration, any discussion for term length is a separate issue that will not be addressed while the election process occurs. Anyone is welcome to bring up the point again *after* the election concludes, as they were welcome to do last year. Which did not see enough interest in changing it, for anyone who may have forgotten. Which is why it's a ONE year term. Righty-o, carry on lads.Nominated Thus Far:
