Community Council Nominations
« on: January 02, 2014, 10:10:26 AM »
Greetings all fellow roleplayers and prisoners of the mists,

It's time again that we hold an election for the Community Council. To those unaware of the purpose of this council, it is first and foremost to serve as mediator and generally act as a benevolent force to minimize OOC conflicts and enhance the atmosphere and sense of unity within the community. They are also a link of communication between the different parts of the community, promoting understanding and awareness of the constant changes we are going through, assuring that the separation and derailment is minimized and that we are all on the same page concerning the most central issues.

It should be made clear that there's no personal benefit or reward in taking part in it other than being able to help the community. Neither is it a position of power, but more so one of advising and mediating. To be a suitable candidate, you shouldn't be forceful or strongly opinionated, but consolidating, wise and understanding. A representative will also have access to sensitive information that has the potential to cause an escalation of conflicts within the community, and as such, the members need also be able to respect and preserve confidentiality whenever needed. And above all, councillors should always be able exercise respect for all members of the community, regardless of personal biases in all matters discussed and attended to within the Council.

You can read more about the Community Council by following this link:

If this is something that appeals to you, and perhaps more importantly, if this is something you consider yourself qualified to do, please help the community flourish and enlist your name/nickname/characters in the topic linked below (use the form at the bottom). If you know others - be it DM, developer or player - that you would consider excellent for such a responsibility, please encourage them to enlist by nominating them there also. Any player nominated must accept the nomination in this thread in order to be eligible. Nominees should also be aware that terms now last for the duration of 4-6 months, sometimes even longer.

The window for nominations and accepting nominations will last until we have the opportunity to set the voting booth up, but at least for a week. Once the nomination process is complete, we will make another post and then the voting will begin. The Council is composed by 6 player representatives, 3 DM representatives and 3 Developer Representatives. The players will pick four players and a DM and a Developer, so feel free to also nominate DMs and developers.

(Note that to be eligible for running as Councillor, at least six months must have passed since the end of your last ban, if you've had any. Members of the DM team and the developers' team cannot enlist as CC members for the players in this part of the election.)

Let the nominations begin! You may nominate yourself, or accept or decline as others nominate for you. Once again, please post your forum name, login name, and character names in the topic linked below. When the nominations are over, you will be given opportunity to make a representation of yourself if nominated.
