I think everyone's just too busy.

As for myself, I'm going to be VERY busy from now on, so I won't be putting my hand up.

What's going on with all the other candidates adding a message about doing away with elections? I have not seen any public posting on the HQ about such things.

Still not a word about the end of staff elections. Great transparency.

Isn't the post immediately above yours a word about the end of the election?

They got to me, so I hid this post.Show
No, I mean an end to all staff elections. By voting for candidates, people also voted to make them permanent staff members forever with no future elections. Basically, what those results indicate is that this was our last staff election and these staff members will be in place until the site goes dark.

Or at least that is what I'm left to believe since there has still been no public discussion or explanation of the statements staff members added to their nomination posts.

To the best of my knowledge, the outgoing and retained admin will be making an announcement regarding that shortly.

This is correct. There will be a separate topic pertaining to this matter.

Pat, Please believe me when I saw "We hear you".

We have been giving this considerable thought over the past 6 months.

Please keep an eye out for an official statement on the matter soon.

The candidates and community are motioning for a removal of the election system, and we've had to be quite cautious and diplomatic about how we go about doing that.

Please stand by.

EDIT: 17 October 2018 - We're still finalising, almost ready, maybe 1-2 days tops!
