Nominations for Hero of Ages
« on: October 13, 2009, 05:07:18 AM »
Well, Chaos was officially removed from office. We need to get a replacement in as soon as possible. I'm acting Hero of Ages for now (I was Chaos' runner-up), but I promised to speed up the process of getting a replacement as much as possible. So, everybody submit your nominations. Note that all nominations must be seconded. Also note that I am not, in fact, eligible for office, as I previously renounced my candidacy. Neither is Chaos, as he's just been removed from office, and the poll does state, "A new hero of ages elected." As in, not the same one. You have one week from today to nominate people. That means that on Monday, October 19th, we will start primaries. Then, once we've narrowed it to 2 or 3 candidates (probably about October 25th), we'll have a final election. The post will be filled by whoever has the most votes on November 1st, the official day to take office.

I also propose that we institute a one-year term for the office of Hero of Ages. Any objections to this? Want to propose an alternate term? Great. Reply here. We'll go with whatever seems to be the general consensus. This is, after all, a democracy.

I'll start. I would like to nominate little wilson for the position of Hero of Ages. Anyone willing to second it? (Wilson can't. No self-nominations or seconds. Note that Wilson can also decline the nomination if she so desires)

A year sounds good to mean. Gives plenty of time, but isn't ungodly long.

For nominations, I'll put forth sortitus. We need a good clown in office! ;D

I'll second Wilson, but if she becomes corrupt again I reserve the right to send in the veggi troops. :P
I've already conquered the world. This is exactly the way I want it.

I think the real question is whether the new Hero of Ages-elect can serve multiple terms, if he is elected for each of them. As in, are there term limits involved?

I don't see a need for term limits, really. If everyone thinks s/he should be the "new" hero ages every year, i say we let 'em.

I nominate e3, Prometheus, and Onion of Death. ;D

Seriously? How about we don't do more than one nomination and one seconding per user. Otherwise this could become confusing/overwhelming in a hurry.
