Apr 22, 2007, 01:25 PM
This is the Nomination thread for the office of Chieftain.
The Chieftain is the supremem leader of our nation and holds all powers not granted to another official. This specifically includes the duties of Election Officer, organizing the Designated Player pool and appointing citizens to vacant offices.
To nominate a citizen for Chieftain, including yourself, post the name in this thread or PM Methos (http://forums.civfanatics.com/private.php?do=newpm&u=54475). Self-nominations are considered automatically accepted unless indicated otherwise. Citizens may only accept one nomination.
All citizens are encouraged to post questions to the nominees about their plans and qualifications for the office. Nominees are encouraged, but not required, to answer these questions.
The nominations thread will close by 2:00 pm (1900 GMT) on April 25th.

I'm just letting everyone know that I do not intend to run for Chieftain next term. With the new baby I'm finding time is limited and maintaining my responsibility as Chieftain and a citizen is very hard. Originally our daughter wasn't due until May 7th, so I felt I would have the month of April to fully focus on being a Chieftain. Our daughter came early, so I'm having trouble maintaining my duties now. I apologize for this and I hope my term hasn't been that bad.
In all honesty, I think I'm going to back out of the Demogame after this term, at least for a while. When things calm down on this end I'll try and rejoin. I've already had to pull out of SGOTM4 for a while, at least until things calm down. For now I believe the only responsibilities I will maintain (@CFC) are my duties on the HoF Staff.
For those of you who aren't happy with how the things are run, step up and give the Chieftain job a try!

I second the nomination of DaveShack. We're reaching a critical stage of the game where we need to decide which path we'll select to win the game. This will require a leader who has the energy and inclination to lead and coordinate discussion on various diverse topics (tech goals, military goals, settlement goals, infrastructure goals, etc) and at the same time make sure all officials are on board with these decisions. The reason we're playing this - and several past - demogames is in large part because of Dave's determination to keep move forward the process of getting the game started. (Dave wasn't the only one for our current game, but he may be the only one who consistently has played such a role in each of the last 3 or 4 games.) I think Dave would be an excellent choice as our next leader and hope he accepts his nomination.
Although we don't yet have official candidates for this position, I'd like to go ahead and post two questions I'd like the candidates to address: What are the challenges of the next term and how do you anticipate handling these? What time commitment do you expect to be able to devote to the game in the next term?

I'm currently undecided. The upcoming month will be very busy at work, like this month has been, and we deserve someone who doesn't have such distractions. I've also had a personal committment to spreading the wealth to experienced but relatively newer players.

I'll nominate 730195. He seems to have strong feelings on how the office should be run, so I'm curious if he can help revive the office.

I guess I'll go ahead and accept the nomination.
