REMINDER: NOMINATIONS, CAMPAIGNING, ETC. HAVE NOT STARTED.

So stop campaigning. If we were all parachuting, half of you've pulled your chute before we were out of the plane, which means that when you finally do jump out... Wink

I wonder if I write long posts for no reason sometimes... Rolling Eyes

You write long posts because you're in love with the cruel internet mistress. She sees your pleas, then spits them right back at ya. Evil internet.

But really, though, I would encourage all members to get a highlighter and highlight Logan's longish post on the last page. He's 100% spot-on.

Scitvs... that wasn't directed at you particularly.

I just think this is following the same trend as all of the upcoming set threads. People just go on and on and on and on and on about something that hasn't even begun yet. I know people are trying to have fun with it, and that's great. I like fun. We all like fun.

I just don't see the point in speculating to the degree it's done in general around here sometimes. You may disagree, and I respect that.

I just wanted to say that it wasn't directed at you personally.

Suuuure it wasn't. Wink I know. But I was one of the main reason that had to be written. I take full responsibility for that.

Alright, I'm posting this in response to a few things I've read over the last few pages.

Everything Currently Pertinent To The Elections

1. When are they starting?
The election committee will let you know. Don't announce your candidacy, ask for running mates, campaign or do ANYTHING ELSE until you're notified it's the correct time. In past years, premature campaigners have experienced severe setbacks from starting too early. If you already have, it's fine -- just stop now and you'll be OK.

2. What is the FBTB Mayor?
The population-elected mayor of FBTB. They have no actual responsibilities or things to do. This is why some candidates have a busy mayorship and some can't actually find anything to do. Anything the mayor does is self-initiated, including 'FBTB Town Meetings' where concerns are voiced. If you can't think of anything original to bring to the table, don't run.

3. What will the Mayor win?
Win's not the appropriate word. After reviewing the situation, it has been decided NO TITLE OR AVATAR will be handed out to the winner. Those running should thus be doing so for the love of the community and not for any popularity or status.

4. Are there any specific rules?
Yes -- Don't campaign, announce or do ANYTHING until notified it's time to do so. Don't spill election stuff into other threads. Signatures are fine, but that's it. Message content outside of election threads should not have anything to do with campaigning. Sending mass private messages is STRONGLY discouraged, as it's considered spamming and will most likely net you a warning.

Also, a word to the wise: everyone, do keep in mind that I'm a vicious vampire time-traveling ninja ADMIN (the bad cop to Austin's good cop); so, anyone breaking the rules and disrupting the harmonious fun that the mayoral process is intended to be will be subject to my wrath. *puts on angry face* Grrr! Twisted Evil

OK, so I don't do "mean" very well. Very Happy But, I just wanted to offer my sincere hopes that this year's campaigning and electoral process will be filled with loads and loads of wacky, yet organized and respectful, enjoyment.

And, if anyone has any constructive suggestions or legitimate concerns, at any time, feel free to PM me. I'm here to help. But, I'm mean, too. Grrr! Wink

It's funny you should mention the paddle, because I just found one of our lost campaign billboard. At the time, this one was rejected because you weren't as cooperative as I liked you to be...

I still have a splinter the size of an Imperial Star Destroyer in my backside. Wink

And it looks like there's going to be an election, so this thread is basically useless... Razz Oh joy. Who's gonna be the bothan to knock me off my seat. Wink

Asking for my support isn't giving me full control of your campaign...

Like I already mentioned, I'm a ruthless dictator control freak when it comes to electoral campaign. Asking me to simply support you just isn't enough for me...

EDIT : Fix so there are no ambiguities. I haven't decided who I will support yet.

** Not to clutter the nomination thread, I decided to post this here **

I just wanted to mention that my services of incredible campaign manager are still up for grabs (and I do have one nomination left to give).

My criterias are quite simple :

1) You have to usually give the good example for other FBTB members in your posts (i.e. respect the CoC, no spamming, usual good grammar)

2) You have to be known, but not that popular. I prefer that every candidate has a fighting chance at the start than to support the already well known and well thought off members.

3) You have to put me in charge of your campaign. Of course, you'll have the final say on the theme and the ideas, but I'm in charge of the strategy. That means no electoral post without my approval first.

4) You have to secure the 6 nominations (mine + yours + 6 = Cool) to enter the campaign. My endorsement might help you on that, but don't count on it.

Your reward? You take all the credit, and have fun along the way. And who knows? Maybe you'll even win! Very Happy

My reward? Making this election fun and whacky for everyone while giving you, the little guy, the same chance as the big guns. Wink

Interested? PM me.

I do however reserve the right to refuse based on my criterias. Smile

I'd ask you, but right now I don't think I'll even get to the campaign stage. Plus, I don't think I fit your criterias. Though no on really does because almost everyone here spams.

Well, maybe you'd get more nominations if you'd STOP whining, and quit calling everyone on FBTB Spammers.

EVERY single campaign post you've made either starts or ends with:

Quote:
but I won't win... Oh, woe is me, no one will nominate me. Poor me. I'm not popular. Everyone hates me. Boo hoo


A little less of that, and a little giving back to the community, being nice, pleasant, and just all around happy and excited about the Mayoral Elections, and you may have gotten more nominations.

Why would we elect someone who practically lies, by saying we hate him?

Things like that don't really help you gain popularity here.

Unless you're Collin.

Have you looked at some of the topics around here in the Bantha Coffee Shop? Especially that Title Explanation Topic, it is complete and udder randomness. I'm not saying that I didn't post in there once or twice with an off-topic comment, what I am saying is that most people did. Also, that most topics end up in a state of off-topicness.

So what if I'm a little whiny? I don't really care if people don't like me. There are a lot of other places where people like me. I don't think I can give anything to the community because I don't have anything to give or share. I don't have any funny jokes, good MOCs, or good posts. I'm sorry that I don't seem happy all the time either. It is who I am. I am just not a happy person. Though I was excited about the elections.

Hey, I'm not trying to sound like a smart-mouth. (but I am at school. Wink ) But, the elections aren't about being mopey, or being a big soar loser jerk. It's JUST ABOUT HAVING FUN PEOPLE! Smile

Let's just make this fun and make it one to remember! Very Happy

And that post was not pointed at anyone in particular, merely a reminder. Smile

If anyone feels like any of that was directed at them, I apologise. It isn't. Smile Wink
