    I also thing this three-leaders system is a good idea. We have more members almost every day, it will be necessary in the future.
    I also think that in this ranking system should be masters, who will helpa newbies and balance between leaders and new members.

    Yes, I agree with Amon about that. It seems pretty much everyone does. Shall we leave it at that then? Three leaders - Sentinel, Guardian and Consular, plus the Senator.

    What else do we need to talk about? Nominations? Ie, should people first be nominated for each role then the top 2 or 3 voted on?

    Since there aren't any divisions or clicks amongst the group, I feel all members should be eligible for every position. Perhaps all "Masters" and maybe "Knights" should be eligible.

    What do you guys think?

    -Vote on Nominations.
    -Everyone eligible for each position.
    -Just Masters.
    -Both Masters and Knights.

    If you think of another system, do tell.

    Thanks for taking leadership Jayd.

    At this point, I don't think nominations are necessary, though it might be a good idea once the number of eligible candidates grows significantly. In my opinion, both Masters and Knights should be able to run. I also believe that everyone who wishes to run should officially state their intent to do so, this way we can eliminate those who have absolutely no interest in the position(s).

    Finally, how will the Guardian and Consular be voted on? Will we have separate elections for each, or do we just say that the person with the second/third highest amount of votes becomes the Guardian/Consular?

    I can see nominations being useful in the future, probably the next election in 4 months.

    I think we should vote for the Senator and the top three positions all at once. You can only vote for one person for each position, you can't vote for yourself, but you can vote for the same person for more then one position. If there is a tie, then a re-vote is taken. If someone gets more then one position, then they get to choose one of them and another vote is taken for the empty position.

    I originaly thought everyone should be eligible to be voted for every position unless they stated otherwise, but I like Sorridom's idea of people having to state which positions they wish to be eligible for.

    What do you guys think?

    Sounds good to me...and i think we should atleast get the leadership voted on by the end of the month so that by christmas we can vote on a new leadership roster.

    Yah, i like having 3 diferant votes for sentinal, consular etc. So, how long would a term be? ( it should be around 4 months, no more, no less)
  8. Jayd Jedi Knight

    Yeah, I think it's already been decided that it would be four months. That seems reasonable to me. And I agree that we should use nominations for the next elections, as well.

    So, when do we get to place our votes? ( Valacar asked us to vote a while back* he said to send it to Zebra 3* If that was the vote, i sent mine in already, but it seams we have changed the system, so when do we vote???

    Stay active in our thread on the EU Community Boards and you'll know when the elections start. We'll post all of the rules and what exactly you're voting for there.


    For now we should move on to the last order of business:(assuming things have wrapped-up with the ranks and election)

    Some of the members and I hope to set up a website. Here's a list of things I want it to do:

    -Display the Roster.
    -Hold Galleries, Collages, Fan Fics, Fan Art, and maybe Fan Films of Revan.
    -Have bios and Pictures of all of our Member's Revans.
    -Host a chat room (and maybe a forum?).

    Thats all I can think of at the moment. Express your thoughts: Do you not like any of the things listed? Is there anything else you want on the site? Do you hate the idea of our own website?

    Another thing we need to decide is: Who edits it and has a say of what's on it? Should this be the President's responsibility to either do it or asign someone? Do we take nominations for the role and vote on them in our elections? et cetera...

    Voice your opinions please and I'm open to other suggestions./>

    All of that that can be added looks fine to me.

    Also, if no one minds I volunteer to build the website and then beta test ti untill you are all satisifed wiht it. I have signed up for some webspace on a server, though it is small i think i can build it to fit...i can also look around and find some other places to host it.

    I can use html and have dreamweaver that i can build sites wiht as well. I also ahve a nearly unlimited set of resources that can be used to help build the site.

    so do you all mind if i go ahead and start on a site and then beta test it so you all can se eit and gve comments...then after it is built i can give to whomever is voted to be the editor the login and the like so that they can add to it.

    I am fine with all of that, but do we really need a forum? ( we should have a chta room though) We already have a forum here. Having ot forums to discose revan would be annoying, and it could " split" any new members. ( when i say slit, i mean like a person on our site would post there, but not here.) we should put in a link that goes directly to the accolytes. Besides that, i like the ideas.

    I think you can go ahead Zan.

    I agree with you DarhtReven. I feel the same way. I mentioned it because I knew it was a possibility and wanted other opinions on it. I do feel it could be useful. For instance, we could use it to take care of this business instead of creating some thread on the Fan Sites board like we're doing now. However, that likens the probability that someone will participate in the discussion that we don't want to.

    I think we should leave the job to the top three and the Senator. Routinely maintaining and updating the site wouldn't be a major thing, and, with those four taking care of it, could still go on, even if only one is present.

    How many members do we have total.( i mean at the accolytes, not here) If we get around 20, perhapes we can start the military. I agree, Valacar. We should have a forum there, but only for business, and perhapes votes. But all normal deabtes and talkes should be at the acolytes. On our business forum( or whatever it will be called) wew should have a notice saying: " this is a site business boared. For the main debates and general apreciation of revan go to the Accolytes of Revan at The Force Net. * we then have a link right to the thread*

    DarhtRevan, that's a good idea of how to title the other forum.

    Members?: Well, we have many inactive ones and others that don't post much, do you want me to include them?

    I'm not so sure about the future of the military system. If this system is incapable of doing its job in the future then it will be up to the elected "President" to decide what to do.

    So, for the Website:

    Zan will get it started and manage who has access and passwords. The elected "president" will have the responsibilty to monitor the site and delegate it's editing amongst his/her "counselors" and the Senator.

    It will include:

    -The Roster.
    -Galleries, Collages, Fan Fics, Fan Art, and maybe Fan Films of Revan.
    -Bios and Pictures of all of our Member's Revans.
    -A chat room.
    -A business Forum.


    Speak now or forever hold your peace. And if there is nothing else I will do a similiar set-up for everything we've gone over so we can all see the future of the Acolytes of Revan. (I hope).

    Valacar, when i asked for a member check, i would prefer active ones. ( which would be any one who has posted in about the lats 10 pages) * that might be high, but god, this fanclub gains a page or 2 every day!* All of us that was invited to this temp replacemet for Zans chat room are active memebrs for sure. * except for Richie. I havent seen him in 2 threads he was active in. Have you guys seen him?

    A little before we start electing, we should decide what each position warrents. ( Senetor deals with: President deals with: Consualr deals with: Jedi G deals with: ) Especial with Jedi C and Jedi G( i shortened them) we need to know what each postion's liability goes too. EXAMPLE: Senetor should deal with all exteranl issues and attend the EU senate. President deals with internal issues and etc...

    I've just done minor updates.


    The Sentinel is first in command; followed by the Guardian; and then the Consular.
    The Senator is a little different. I would put the role close behind the Sentinel but it is the 4th position in line for the Sentinel's role. The Senator has little jurisdiction over the thread.

    thatnks for the list. We have aroun 15 semi-active- active people. But then again, some people listed as semi active i would list now non-active, like the last consular. Both ways, this " cheat sheet" will help us make a military, if needed.

    @Val: I like this idea about the fan site. I don't really have much experience with designing web sites, though, but I'll do collages and fanfics.

    I haven't been around lately, so, did the voting begun yet?

    All right, I hope this won't take long.

    What I had in mind:

    -assign one of the 3 ranks to our current members respectively
    -make it into a list
    -afterwards begin documenting everyone's personalized subtitle and Honarary Position.(I don't know all of the ones that have been assigned so I'll just have people tell me their's via pm or on the thread.)

    What condition is the site in Zan?

    I'll kind of deligate your guys' responsibilities later but for now I just want to see how things run the way they've been designed to.

    Thanks for your support and I'm always open to advice, comments, questions, and feedback in general.

    I just got an msn account and requested permission to join the Acolytes of Revan so I have yet to see the site so far. What did you guys have in mind for handeling the Personalized Subtitles and Honorary Positions? I feel like the Personalzed Subtitle can be changed at any time as long as all three of us agree upon it. And the Honarary position is earned, like how Darth_wanderguard is the Founder.

    Sounds good. I'll begin updating the members list.



    Also, here's a list of subtitles and the people holding them--based off one of the early rosters:

    Lord: Dark_Kaiburr
    Lady: Jayd
    Scout: Valacar
    Archivist: BOOSTERERRANT
    Mandalorian Defender: SithLordDarthRichie
    Pulp Fiction Wisecracker: dragonsith13
    T3-M4 Utility Droid: Ja-ClosEasou
    Scholar: Zandoran_Celix
    Technical Specialist: MarcusP2
    Mandalore: DarthReven



    And here are the honorary positions we have so far:

    Founder: Darth_wanderguard
    Lady Revanites Co-Founder: Jayd
    /Zebra3



    EDIT: What did you guys have in mind for handeling the Personalized Subtitles and Honorary Positions? I feel like the Personalzed Subtitle can be changed at any time as long as all three of us agree upon it. And the Honarary position is earned, like how Darth_wanderguard is the Founder.

    I agree entirely.
