well, for redundancy's sake, i nominated wilson and sort again.

Also, I nominate the movie avatar. Why? because I just finished looking it that thread, and it seems sufficiently random to amuse me.

Wow. This is really getting to be a bad habit. Maybe we need to vote on a resolution that specifies that Kaz isn't allowed to bring charges of impeachment against anyone.

Because I think that the charges are just Kaz being bored, I second Wilson and Sort. I also propose the following:

That Kaz is no longer allowed to bring charges of impeachment against those holding the office of Hero of Ages, Ruin, Preservation, or Hoid. That Kaz is allowed to continue voting in such a case, if one is brought forward by another member of the forum. And that Kaz is officially declared a menace to society.

All those in favor?

Wasn't that a given just on principle?

I second everything Andrew said. Wholeheartedly. We didn't even do anything (good/bad/whatever) and we got impeached. That does NOT set a good precedent.

Well Chaos did not violate any rule of law or our rights... he just let you know he could. In conclusion the precedent was poor to begin with, and you went along with it Kendra, so stop whinning for what you yourself set in place. :P
*sends cyber-five to Chaos* :D

I impeached you, Kendra, not Kaz! You violated your divine right by making new powers to yourself.

Plus, Peter seconded my motion.

Clearly I am the rightful holder of the title, "Hero of Ages".

Nominate so we can finish this election process and i can start stalking the HoA like a good little antagonist.

Of course it's a given that Kaz is a menace to society. I just wanted to officially declare this.

Maybe we should set an amount of time that we have to wait before impeaching a HoA? I can just see this turning into a constant stream of impeaching an re-electing.

That, or just say that you can't impeach them and they get a year to be the tyrannical dictator. That could be fun too.

I thought this was kind of assumed, but apparently not. Oh well. There's still a small chance sort and i will regain our respective positions. As Irony and Discord.....

Yes. Those were the names we'd created for ourselves, and the respective powers to go along with them. But we hadn't even used the powers, so I don't see what the real fuss is about. We just wanted to lay down clues to our names and see who the astute person would be that figured them out, but apparently no one wanted to be astute. They just wanted to impeach us....Very disheartening, let me tell you.
