This thread will be used for organizing and processing the information needed to bring about a new Team Leader. In this democracy, our Team Leader should hold office for a term of 1 month. Any active and posting citizen is eligible to participate as a nominee for the office. All nominees shall be nominated by another citizen or by self-nominating. Anyone nominated for the office must accept the nomination by posting in the nomination thread (for this election, this thread will suffice). The Team Captain is allowed access to the saves and other information pertaining to the game. Most contact from the referee to the team is through the team captain. Also, the team Captain authorizes others on the team access to this information. Just as everyone here has been allowed access to this private forum. The Team Captain is also a touchpoint for the other teams in the United Nations. Contact and communications can and probably will be directed at this office in the future. Keeping the team updated with new information from the UN will be an important part of the job. Making sure the team, as a whole, is united in the decision making process will also be part of this job discription. Solving internal problems, setting up needed threads and polls, and staying involved in discussions will also be key to the position. As the game is now starting, and the holidays are upon us, I believe we should take this election process (our second) slowly. We can use this week for nominations (too long?), then the following week for the election, leaving a week before the new year (and month). The new year would bring on the next term.
