Hi folks!

I was just browsing through some old pics of the last FBTB mayoral campaign, and I realized that Iceman's current term was about to end soon.

I think an election at this time would be pretty fun, and it would expand even more the diversity of subjects offered in the Bantha Coffee Shop section.

Anyway, if anyone wants to secure my services as campaign manager, I'm ready to listen to offers, and I take all major credit cards and Paypal!

I'm definitely not voting for Junsier. Wink

Unless he's running for FBTB Janitor.

Logan will undoubtedly cast his vote for Junsier, seeing as how they're in love.

I'm gonna talk to the rest of the staff and see what they think. Not that it's up to us, of course, since the elections are totally run by the members themselves. But, in the past, the elections have gotten kinda out of hand.

On the other hand, we've got more people in charge now on staff who have absolutely no problem at all disciplining (i.e. torturing) members if they get out of line. Twisted Evil

So, if it was up to me, I'd say go for it. Just keep in mind, though: if people start taking things too seriously, I'm gonna come crashing down on them like a ton of bricks. BIG bricks. Like Duplo. Or bigger. Wink

I think we should post a rules/duty thread for the newer members, which entails the duties and responsibilities with becoming a mayor.

Are you guys sure that this isn't Daz Hoo's evil plot to take over FBTB and then the world?

Yup, I am in.

I'm all for another election. Even though I probably won't participate much, I enjoy watching them take place. Smile

The FBTB Mayoral Election is a little slice of craziness that occurs every so often where a FBTB Mayor is elected (or, in the case of the first ever election, two Co-Mayors {Austin and Darth Sillyus}). Just stay tuned... when these events are upcoming, you'll know.

And I'm almost positive that to run, you must be nominated and seconded by a number of people (I think somewhere between 3-5). And I missed out on the previous one but this sounds
pretty cool Daz.

Actually... I just realized how sexy your new mustache and Bermuda shorts are. I'll vote for you, Rocko.

Besides, you sounded a little jealous. Wink

Plus it could be fun, expecially as I'm not corrupted.

I'll run... away. Wink

But really, I think this should be open to (mainly) people with titles. They've already marked the community, so it would be fitting to see them figh.. er umm... run for office.

Ah, I remember CommanderJake running for it last year, and Iceman didn't even have a title until recently!

If we only opened it up to people with titles, we'd miss out on DOZENS of worthy candidates.

I look forward to this year's election. And hey, maybe there'll be a neat little prize for the winner.

Besides... it's a good way for people to contribute to the forums in a new way. Or an old way if you've been here before.

Prize? Did you say prize? Do you realize how many people will sign up if there's a prize? Even if you pulled out the little cardboard garbage they give you in Cracker Jack boxes now, and call that a prize, and announce it beforehand... some people are so desperate that they'd beg for votes.

Me? I just want Cracker Jacks now. Wink

Sadly, I was just about to do the exact same thing. But you posted first.

My OCD demands that I read it first.

Wouldn't "Hawaii Five-O" be a better reference for now?
