Well, if you're volunteering, Bardan... That could be accomplished. *narrows eyes at you*
My political career in the EUC is at an end. I will however be watching this election (as well as future ones) with great interest.
To the pain.
I meant that you would volunteer to be the one to duel to the death. For no reason.
It is my pleasure to announce that I am running for Chancellor, with CrazyOldHermit as my cohort in crime! Thank you ladies and gentlemen!
And the boys are back in town!!
Three full teams running, so far. Good turnout.
Good luck to BultarSwan!
Ok since I'm running as a VC candidate and have been appointed the New Users Social thread's senator I am stepping down from running the actual election part. Bardan_Jusik do you have time to run this part?
Oh yes, I love rigging running a good election.
Congratulations on being named the NUS new Senator.
Too all those running, thank you. It is wonderful to see such an excellent slate of candidates vying for Chancellor's chair. Good luck to you all.
I am going to now close the nomination phase and if there is no objection move us forward to the campaigns. Would the three teams please come forward and state what they stand for and why they should earn the votes of our esteemed Senators.
BultarSwan, Rebecca_Daniels, zarkinfrood, CrazyOldHermit, Katana_Sundancer,s65horsey do you all have platforms that you wish to present? I would like for this phase of the process to be finished by the beginning of next week.
sits back and waits to listen to the candidates
Ah, I'll work on putting something together today.
I've written it, just waiting for my running partner, CrazyOldHermit to check his pm's.
I apologize for the double post, but we are ready.
Ladies, Gentlemen, droids and others of the EU, myself and my friend CrazyOldHermit are here to announce our candidacy for the prestigious position of Chancellor and Vice Chancellor of our beloved EU.
The EU as a community has been going on for much longer than I have been here, and it has been a delight being here. You have been the standard by which I compare all other internet communities, and I doubt that will ever change. I want us to uphold the standards of friendship, discussion, and shenanigans that have always taken place here.
Recently, due to the leadership of our current chancellor, as well as collaboration with the Lit forums, we have had the "Get to know an EU character thread" which has been rather successful. I've learned a lot about characters I had never even heard of, and has shown me the knowledge and dedication to the EU that people have not only here, but in the Lit forums as well. In a time where the EU is being threatened by the up and coming films, we are hopeful and optimistic, but we must also hold together in this time as a fan base. Because of this, we would like to see further effort to collaborate and share between here and our friends in Lit. This is part one of what we would like to do as your Chancellors, should we be elected.
The second part is that I personally want to promote and endorse all ridiculous shenanigans. I imagine that many of you are surprised by this, not that I would suggest it, but that it is part two instead of one. Nonetheless, I want to be able to look back on our term as Chancellors and be able to say that more preposterous silliness happened during this term than in any other before or after. Which means, of course, that I hope you all will participate. I would like to recommend a Jedi/sith/imperials/pilots/mandos five-way water balloon war in the BMC to celebrate the elections, regardless of who wins.
It may seem in looking at my plans that they seem abstract, with few details. That is because I don't have details. I want you to help me make these abstract concepts into something as crazy and amazing as this community can. I cannot over-stress how important it is to me that you cooperate with us. I want your imput, and I need your help, because anything done in this forum without the help of this awesome and completely unique community will not be worthy of it.
So, I hope you look at these plans, these ideas and see the chance to take part. Because I want this term to be about us as a family (A crazy inbred E-family that it is ) working together to create something amazing. If this sounds good to you, we would be happy to have your vote. If it doesn't sound good, we'd still like your vote. So thank you EU for this opportunity to lead the way into our future.
Zark and Hermit for Shenanigans in 2013!!!
Great speech zarkinfrood
Can't wait to hear from the competion!
Becca and I will present ours as soon as possible. She is travelling and I have been gone all weekend.
I need to apologise for not being around - I've had absolutely no Internet connection for the last few days. Working on my post though, just not able to get it onto the boards at this time.
We'll be looking forward to hearing it. Hurry back to us!
*opens a concealed door in a dark corner of the senate building auditorium and sets up a recording device to transmit the speeches to my ship*
*leaves a wrapped paper package on the floor of the gungan senators platform and rigs it to light as they enter, before exiting discreetly*
Have BultarSwan, Rebecca_Daniels, Katana_Sundancer and s65horsey developed their own platforms yet?
