Its that time again to elect new staff members!

This year there is a slight difference - The staff who apply will not be placed into a specific part of the forum such as military,civilian and aerobatic. They will choose to join as staff who specialize in either - Online Play, Modding or Forum Specific Work.

Online Play will focus on getting players back onto servers and help organize events such as ATC Nights and Airshows.
Modding will focus on helping people who are new to modding, moderating the addon sections of HQ.
Forum Specific will focus on working within the forum, such as dealing with reports and helping solve situations which have occurred on the forum.

Details

- Two with most votes in one section will be elected.

- You can vote for TWO people in ALL THREE topics.

- You can only apply if you Have not been banned in the last 6 months, or have no warnings in the past 3 months. If during the course of the "campaign" you do break the rules and receive a warning, this will remove you from the poll.

- Applications will close at 7PM UTC on the 14th March.

- Polls will open at 7:15 PM UTC on the 14th March and will stay open for 48 hours.

- A tie will be broken by the time on the poll being extended.

- There MUST be more than two people in a section for the vote to be allowed to proceed. Otherwise signup will be extended until there is three.

- You CAN vote for yourself.

-Campaigning is permitted only by public means by each candidate themselves. This includes campaigning on election topics, social media, and any other means of communicating to the public. Campaigning through private or discreet means is grounds for removal from candidacy. This includes individually petitioning for votes outside public campaign messages. All campaigning must cease as soon as the polls are open. Campaigning by promising benefits for specific users is prohibited.

Good luck!

Link doesn't work in shorthand form, needs to be expanded.

Also is the form publically accessable? I had to sign in to my google account to use it.

Cheers. :)

EDIT - Sniped... haha.

Needs to be publicly accessible for signup as Flake mentioned not all of us like or use google.Its an impediment for any who wish to signup.

Thank god the staff didn't forget about the elections, it would've been devastating if they forgot to have one.

I'll admit we are a bit late on this one - wanted to have it last month and get our new constitution out, but we've been busy with real life so hasn't happened until now. Thanks to jetskit for taking the initiative and creating this post. I think once we get more used to these elections it will be more timely.

You're the owner of the post now, so you should be able to edit it. Per election protocol we can't alter candidate statements once the form is filled out, we just post them - only the candidate can edit it. :lol: 8-)
