Please see this thread for the discussion that brought us to this point. Basically, as part of the forum reform effort, we are (thanks to Protege-of-Thrawn's wonderful suggestion) going to have an RPF Council to assist in all and sundry forum business. The council will consist of 18 members serving a six-month term: 8 with user registration dates of 2003 or earlier 6 with user registration dates during 2004 4 with registration dates during 2005 Please use this thread to nominate RPF users for appointment to the council. There are a few rules to keep things fair and civil: 1. You may not nominate yourself. 2. No nominating of socks or anything even mildly iffy. The council will consist of RPF regulars and those with knowledge about the forum. All nominated users will be checked to ensure they are legitimate accounts. 3. There will be a limit of ten nominations per user. I expect that many people will only be nominating 2 or 3 users, but if you want to nominate a bunch, go for it. However, the limit is ten. If this is a huge problem then PM me and we'll talk. 4. On the subject of PMs...if you don't wish to post your nomination in public, you may PM me, but I strongly encourage you to post it publically. 5. Please include a few words about your nominee(s) to help everyone get to know them better. Maybe a list of their current RPGs, qualities you like about them, why you think they make a good leader, etc. 6. Oh, and....NO CAMPAIGNING! If I catch anyone asking to be nominated, you're not getting on the Council. Period. That's not acceptable behavior, so please, please, don't even think about it! This thread will be open for a week (until Tuesday, Dec. 13th). After nominations have closed, I will select the Council from the list of nominees and announce them, hopefully by Dec. 17th. Thanks to everyone who has helped develop this idea. I appreciate the enthusiasm and helpfulness and look forward to working with you all to help expand and improve our forum. NP edit: Thanks for all the nominations. I'll close this thread now.
