Postby Ahaugen on Sun Mar 08, 2009 2:37 pm

I hate to be the one to start the fire, but unfortunately it's time for our attempt at Democracy: Election season is upon us. Those of you who weren't here in 2007, see this for a general understanding of what I'm talking about: http://cgwiki.comicgenesis.com/index.ph ... Discussion.

Is it on?

If it is I am going to do a pre-emptive "Oh Snap!"

If not then please disregard the previous statement.

I'll just cast an absentee ballot. There's no way for me to contribute to this election.

No no, that's AFTER the election, regardless of who wins. I have nothing to contribute to the election itself.

*sigh* If these are the wishes of the people, I have no choice but to accept this nomination! I will lead Comic Genesis into a new age! Now, let's discuss my "Five Year Plan"... 8-)

That's true, isn't it? I haven't seen The Neko around here in ages. Of course, I'm pretty self-involved, and don't really pay very good attention to such things.

As I understand it Keffria is actually the caretaker president.

Elect a Dead President

Postby Fading Aura on Mon Mar 09, 2009 6:03 pm

If you're looking for a president, you should choose someone who isn't actually on the forums anymore. Allow me to elaborate.

1) Said president should be chosen on popular standing. That way everyone will look up to and have fond memories of them, i.e., "Remember when the President did insert event here?" "Oh yes. Who could forget that? They were awesome."
Corollary: If said president is no longer posting, there is nothing they can do that will sully their reputation. This is also true should they return.

2) The president-to-be will have exhibited extremely favorable or unfavorable behavior in the past. This won't matter because they're already popular, or that is why they became popular.

3) No Comic Genesis or Keenspace president to date has actually done anything while in office other than provide rhetoric to enforce their popularity or serve as a scapegoat when things go badly - see point 2. So why not choose someone who's already in the minds (and hearts) of the denizens but never seen?

4) Should this thread bring the dead back to life (i.e. long missing members), they are instantly qualified for the position since we will never see them again once this thread is moved to the Archive. That is, until there is another election.
When I was a child, I caught a fleeting glimpse out of the corner of my eye. I turned to look, but it was gone. I cannot put my finger on it now. The child is grown; the dream is gone. And I have become comfortably numb.
