Thank you for your nominations, below are the people who have been selected by you for the CR election. *** Nominated but not standing ForceGhostOfCozmic (Chris) suzijedi (Suzi) spike_thmid (Chris) timbolton (Tim) VenHalcyon (Nathan) If you are on the list and don't feel now you can do the job, say so now please, and we'll drop your name from nominees list. spike_thmid has already PM'd me his withdrawal, as has ForceGhostofCozmic. Nominees "Manifesto" and member Q&A Each nominee should write a "manifesto" about themselves, and explain why they should be CR. Examples of previous experience (from here or elsewhere) will be helpful. The North is in a far stronger position than it was last year, so the manifestos don't need to be the 1'000+ word novels they were in '06. Just a few paragraphs to explain where they see the North going and how they will take it even further forward will suffice. Veering away from last year, all nominees must PM their manifestos to either halibut or myself. Manifestos will then be posted in this thread in two weeks time (or whenever the last manifesto is PM'd to us). * Once we have all the manifestos, posters are free to ask the nominees questions about their manifesto or anything else to do with the FF-UK: North. Hopefully you'll get an idea about what the nominees are about, and who will be best to vote for. In previous years people from outside the North also posted, and there were some good questions asked. I'm happy to keep that going as long as the trend of good questions continues. No more comments about other peoples' manifestos, their professionality etc. We're supposed to be setting an example to the other chapters, and so far we're failing miserably. If there's going to be any conversation, let it be about what you, the candidates, want for the North.
