It is once again time to elect new Advisory Panel members. As in the past we will use the following process:
  1. Forum Members will nominate candidates by PMing AdvisoryPanelAdmin;
  2. Nominees will be notified by a PM from AdvisoryPanelAdmin;
  3. Once a final list is compiled, we will hold a vote.
The following rules will be strictly enforced:
  1. Every candidate must receive at least two nominations to be included on the ballot;
  2. All nominees must formally accept their inclusion on the slate, by responding to AdvisoryPanelAdmin by noon on 26 June;
  3. No one may nominate him or herself;
  4. Only members with accounts that were set up prior to 5pm today (18 June) may participate (nominate or vote for candidates); and
  5. Anyone caught publicly discussing or seeking either a nomination or a vote will be disqualified.

Please send (PM) all nominations to AdvisoryPanelAdmin, and feel free to nominate as many people as you feel appropriate. Be sure to use the person’s username, not real name.

If you have any questions or concerns please PM the Admins (Zachary, Gavin, and/or Nicole).

We will update this post daily with the names of those who have received at least two nominations.

If you have been nominated and wish to decline, please PM AdvisoryPanelAdmin.

We plan to stop taking new nominations at 9pm on Thursday (23 June).

When nominating people, please keep in mind the purpose of the election and the Panel, itself. The Advisory Panel serves a critical role in setting Forum policy and in censuring and banning members. It is intended to assist the Admins in running and governing the Forum. Panel members can be called upon at any time to make recommendations on Forum issues, some of which can be time sensitive. The Panel is intended to represent the Forum membership and advise the Admins, based on their experiences and requests/thoughts they receive from other users.

For these reasons, this is not a popularity contest. People who take good photos or know a lot about manufacturers may or may not be best qualified to represent Forum members or make reasonable recommendations. Think about whose views about the Forum align best with yours, who you most trust to vote on policies, and who can be thoughtful and objective in considering the implications of policy and banning decisions; not who has the most clever posts.

******

Based on the nominations so far, here is the current list of nominees. If there are members you think should be listed, please be sure to PM AdvisoryPanelAdmin.

Given how few nominations we received this year, the Admins have been discussing the most appropriate way forward. We have decided to open the window back up for everyone to submit nominations.

You will have until 10pm Thursday (30 June).

Please send (PM) all nominations to AdvisoryPanelAdmin, and feel free to nominate as many people as you feel appropriate. Be sure to use the person’s username, not real name.

(Just click on Figment in the post above and select “Start Conversation.”)
