    Whenever I open this thread lately, I get the Monty Python "Dennis" scene stuck in my head:p

    Arthur: Then who is your lord?
    Woman: We don't have a lord!
    Arthur: (spurised) What??
    Man: I *told* you! We're an anarcho-syndicalist commune! We're taking
    turns to act as a sort of executive-officer-for-the-week--
    Arthur: (uninterested) Yes...
    Man: But all the decisions *of* that officer 'ave to be ratified at a
    special bi-weekly meeting--
    Arthur: (perturbed) Yes I see!
    Man: By a simple majority, in the case of purely internal affairs--
    Arthur: (mad) Be quiet!
    Man: But by a two-thirds majority, in the case of more major--
    Arthur: (very angry) BE QUIET! I *order* you to be quiet!:-B [face_peace]

    Maybe we should see if we could get a strange woman lying in a pond to distribute a sword for the CR position....

    I have my lightsaber, but, while that would be hilarious and appropriate, it can't get wet. [face_mischief]

    At the last meeting there was discussion about changing the council positions to consolidate them since we don't have many candidates this time.

    After much discussion, we agreed to create a co-CR position, which there used to be in the RMFF. The responsibilities of the person in this position would be to help the CR and act as #2 to take some of the responsibilities off the CR. If the CR can't make a meeting or be available for other stuff, the co-CR would be the person to step up and handle the CR duties.

    We would combine the co-CR position with the member-at-large position.

    We would also combine the Secretarian/Treasurer positions into one all-in-one position: Secretariasurer...or something like that.

    We also decided that Grimby can have the position of webmaster until such time as he decides that he doesn't want to do it anymore. I believe we should do the same for the Wings Over the Rockies liaison position for Sarnia.

    All of these positions would be for 1 year terms.

    Revised RMFF council 2011 ballot:

    CR: Grimby

    co-CR/MAL: Sith__Chick

    Secretarian/treasurer: QueenHighMistress (with Mistress as backup), DH

    If those people who are nominated would not like to run for these positions, knowing how they have been revised, please post be Dec. 3. We'd like to finalize the ballot be Friday, the 3rd and have voting from the 4th through the 10th. Then we can announce the new RMFF council at the meeting on the 12th.

    Do we have any other nominations or people willing to accept a previous nomination for CR knowing that you would have a co-CR to help you out?

    Did I miss anything?

    So I guess I'm the only one who didn't give a firm "no" to being CR?

    I'd like to withdraw my nomination. $$ and I don't mix, like two unmixy things.

    Right there with you kiddo.

    I agree that combining MAL with Co-Cr just makes sense, but historian with treasurer? Those are both big gigs.

    Knowing that there would be a co-CR to back her up, and that she's not expected to be perfect, i'd like to re-nominate Cyodarun for CR.

    At the last meeting we asked DH and nerfherders their opinion on combining their positions and they felt like it could be done. However, if y'all won't want to do the job if it's combined, we can leave them separate, if ya'll would still accept the nomination for just secretarian.

    I second cyodarun's renomination for CR.

    If dh is fine with running for the combined position, I will gladly step aside and let him do it. He's done a fantastic job as Treasurer and I have no doubt that he can handle the Secretarian duties as well.

    Well, given that I am not expected to be perfect [face_worried] and there is a good back up, I will accept the nomination. This is where the fun begins.

    RMFF council ballot:

    CR: Grimby, cyodarun

    co-CR/MAL: Sith__Chick

    Secretarian/treasurer: darth_hair (or have QHM/Mistress be co-secretarians with DH as treasurer?)



    Do we want to combine the secretarian/treasurer and have DH be that person or should we separate the secretarian/treasurer positions and have QHM/Mistress be secretarian and DH be treasurer? I'm good either way. Should that be on the ballot?

    Once this is settled (hopefully by Friday), we'll start PMing our votes to Jedi_Dajuan as soon as I get the go ahead from her that she'll accept ballots..

    I thought we said we were PMing the votes to s65horsey since she's the RSA.

    And for what it's worth, I'm of the opinion that the Secretarian/Historian and Treasurer should be separate positions, with the added stipulation that one person is allowed to hold both positions at the same time.

    Also, I will happily bow out of the CR race with Mel back in the running.

    I agree with Ben...the thought was that it made sense to have someone who knows which voters are actual people tally the votes. I want you to have the job. :)
