    Term 6 Election for the Designated Players

    The Designated Player plays the save according to instructions that were posted by officials. The Designated Player must post an Instruction Thread in which officials will post their instructions, and then play the save following the instructions to the best of his/her ability. The Designated Player may choose whether to hold his/her turnchat online or offline. Following the turnchat, the Designated Player should post as much information as he can, including a summary, log, screenshots, and the save. The Designated Player should do all of this in a timely manner so as not to delay the game.

    I'm sorry, I should have specified. A candidate needs to receive more than 50% of the non-abstain votes to be elected DP.

    Edit: should be more than 50%, not just 50%

    sorry to point out a technicality Mr. Censor, but they actually need more than 50%, so getting 50% would not elect them

    Whoops, I guess that's what "over 50.00%" means. ;) I guess with our CoL I got used to looking for 50.01% for "over 50%". Interestingly enough, I don't think we've ever had a situation where a DP received only half of the votes.

    The abstain votes bring it down, but technically we throw those out for the calculuation of 50%.

    When you make polls, I wish the forum had a null vote option, where you wouldn't have to make an abstain vote, and null votes aren't counted. Would make it a lot easier =/

    This is a first, at present there are no ties in the vote. If this holds up, we won't have to use the rather silly but necessary tie breaker mechanism of 1st accepted nomination goes first.

    Why make it any easier than it already is? :confused: The DP vote is pretty much just a virtual love-in right now anyway.

    I still contend that we should just allow anyone who signs up in the nomination thread to be a DP, as watching these silly DP elections go forward is a waste of time. Why should we put any weight behind this constitutionally unaccountable position anyway? Let anyone who wants to play do their worst to our great nation and yet live to tell the tale to their grandkids! :lol:

    You screw up; doesn't matter because it's not an elected position. You screw up a few terms ago? No matter, the people will always forgive (or forget)! :love:

    Either hoist some accountability onto this position or stop these elections. There is no excitement in watching them unfold whatsoever, as this game has veered away from its political origin. Just like second grade, everyone's a winner now.

    Well, I only voted for 5 of the 7 candidates, and now that i think about it, i probably should've only voted for 4.
