before this year began i presented plausible changes for 2001. among them, new officers and the like.
i would like to present some new options for you guys again before 2002 begins. among them:
- i might step down as president and let somebody else take over the TOPs. for other to get a feel of being TOP president. i might just act as a sort of founder/advisor
- new officers?
- a website perhaps
any other suggestions or comments, please post them here.

i candidate myself as new President <img src="wink.gif" border="0"> <br />and i candidate my site as official site of TOP even if i thought my site already was the home of TOP.. <br /> <img src="frown.gif" border="0">
Dec 8th, 2001, 12:18 PM
LOL vale, your site has become an official clan site already and more recently, has become the main site of the TOPs <img src="smile.gif" border="0">
Dec 8th, 2001, 01:35 PM
honestly i think my site is the only TOP site who is regularly update.<br />about the President,we will do a election...i candidate myself,i wait to know who other wants s to candidate <img src="wink.gif" border="0"> <img src="tongue.gif" border="0">
Dec 8th, 2001, 01:48 PM
Well i second you Vale - as top's president - and i also think the TOPs should make more use of your site -which i agree is probably the most up to date lindsay site there is. I just wish more people used your forum <img src="frown.gif" border="0">
Dec 8th, 2001, 07:59 PM
Im not running for Prez lol, but Vale you have my vote <img src="wink.gif" border="0">
Dec 9th, 2001, 04:05 AM
I'm sorry Vale but I can never get into your site. It wont download it. Ohhhh damn I'm a-gonna miss out on EVERYTHING!
I don't want to be president. I'm too lazy. Just give my a job that makes me look good but I don't have to do much.
Dec 9th, 2001, 06:25 AM
before we ask for candidates, i havent really decided to step down as president.
i will let you guys decide. do you still want me to be your prez?
i think u should decide from yourself,cos it's too difficult for us to make a decision.
Dec 9th, 2001, 09:45 AM
Then lets do the voting between Vale and Jacs. Who ever lose would be vice pres, unless someone wants the position could join the nominations.
I hope we can have this organize before tournament season begins so that we can really plan everything for our queen Lindsay.
Maybe we should do a roll call first for all members and schedule a time period of voting and nominating. lets say Dec XX 10:00 PM eastern time to Dec XX etc.....
Dec 9th, 2001, 10:28 AM
yes QueenLindsay,u r right.we must do a roll call not also here but also via e-mail and contact all Lindsay fans but first of all we have to estabilish the date of this election.
Dec 9th, 2001, 11:25 AM
Hi there this is my first time in here but i have been a lindsay fan for a long time. I was wondering if i could become a member here as I am actully equally a Monica & Lindsay fan and as they are great friends i thought i should join both the TOP thread and the Selestials thread. hope this is not a problem. <img src="smile.gif" border="0"> <img src="smile.gif" border="0"> <img src="smile.gif" border="0"> <img src="smile.gif" border="0">
Dec 9th, 2001, 11:44 AM
wait, wait guys ... lets stop with the election for the moment ...
i want to hear comments from you if you want a different president or not.
btw, i would not like to be vice-president quite frankly. this is not to sound superior or snooty or anything but i would not want to be vice-president of a club i founded/started. not to say that i am being too proud or big-headed but i just feel this way.
i would like to hear comments from you if you would like me to step down or anything but hold on with the elections guys.
Dec 9th, 2001, 11:45 AM
tennisfan** - of course you could join the tower of power clan <img src="smile.gif" border="0">
Dec 9th, 2001, 12:04 PM
Well if you didn't want to step down yet or hadn't decided then maybe you should have waited until you had.
Frankly, I didn't even know there was a president of this club. So whoever it is doesn't matter to me, as long as it's not me...
Dec 9th, 2001, 04:54 PM
Yes i think Vale's site is a brilliant site. Is there an election? If Jacs, you still wanted to be president why did u say mabye i wont/will?? I dont understand.
Perhaps it's time for a change but i cant really say.
Dec 9th, 2001, 08:37 PM
Hi TOPs <img src="graemlins/wavey.gif" border="0" alt="[Wavey]" /> !!!!!!!<br />I donīt care, who the "president" is. So: jacs, if you still like to be in this position, then you should stay there. You made a quite good job because you are often online. <img src="smile.gif" border="0"> <br />But I donīt object if Vale will become the new president. She is the founder of a great Lindsay-site, which she always updates. Moreover, she posts here nearly everyday.
I think you (jacs and Vale) should make out the new or old prez. <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0">
Dec 9th, 2001, 09:03 PM
jacs, i thought you wanted to step down. But apparently thats not the case, so i say we leave it the way it is.
Dec 9th, 2001, 09:41 PM
I am seriously not bothered who the president is but what exactly does he/she do????
Dec 9th, 2001, 09:49 PM
Oh for goodness' sake.
We all love Lindsay, that's why we come here. Why do we need some hierarchical structure? To be honest, I never knew anyone was in charge round here. We are all equal and we should all share ownership of this board.
Call me a communist if you like!!
Dec 10th, 2001, 06:14 AM
I actually dont care ho should be president as long as majority approves. I think its valid to have a new election for president since there are also a lot of changes that had happened. new members came in and some of them did'nt even know the officers. For democracy sake lets organized an election wether Jacs will remain or not. If Jacs wins then she will remain or otherwise.
This officers is actually not a form of heirarchy rather this is a job delegation for members. No one is really in command here, we just want everything to be in order. Shall we shay whoever actually elected will a public servant of TOPS clan.
Jacs, if you still have the list of positions and its functions pls post it here.
Dec 10th, 2001, 09:06 AM
i dont know if this already exists but on the TOPS website maybe there could be a profiles section for us all...u know with name, age, date of birth (for oh so many birthday partys), interests, etc. just to kinda make it like an official club or somert...maybe have pictures or whateva. we could send emails of our details to the site. i dont know what would happen etc cos i can only just about send an email...im a "computer retard" as my college teacher would say
Dec 10th, 2001, 12:19 PM
i'm sorry if my post created so many troubles!i thought Jacs didnt want to be president anymore,so i did candidate myself.but if Jacs still wants to be,no question.
Dec 10th, 2001, 02:26 PM
oh geez no, jacs.<br />What are you thinking, giving up ur presidency? This cannot be a logical thought..... Is the stress of exams (guessing) going to ur head.<br />You'll be alright when lindsay starts to play again, jacs.<br />UR the president, please dont step down. UR the only one who posts news on lindz b4 anyone else, if u didnt it would be the following week b4 i knew what was going on.<br />Im sure its just xmas jitters that you are typing insane things..... Get some more tylenol into ur system jacs, but dont step down.

okay, guys easy ... we dont want any trouble here ... lindsay fans are always calm and collected.
- first of all, i merely expressed my thoughts because i just wanted to run a few ideas with you guys and see how you would react to them.
- next, the Tower of Power lindsay clan's structure is not to demean any member whatsoever. they are there to just point out what some members would do for the clan when taking the position. the president, vice-president, etc, etc is there to do something for the clan. power is not the point but a certain amount of responsibility.
- the full list of officers were posted in the sanex wta board until it was shut down. unfortunately, it could not be retrieved because of that messageboard's difficulties.
- we have planned that we send profiles to vales site before but everything has become so busy that we have not gone around into doing it.
- i believe vale is a wonderful lindsay fan and that her site is best lindsay site i have seen so far.
- i do think that vale meant NO harm in her posts.
- LOL beckl <img src="wink.gif" border="0"> thank you for your kind words <img src="smile.gif" border="0"> shhh about my tylenol obssession <img src="wink.gif" border="0">
<br />here is the partial list of the current TOP officers. this is from what i remember:
<br />RESIDENT PC EXTRODINAIRE<br /><br />jabberwocky
jabberwocky<br />heather (friend)
<br />that is as far as i could remember.

Oops - Im sorry tooo Jacs - I really thought you wanted to step down - but if you dont then i say "if its not broke, dont fix it". <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0">
I also think that whatever is decided, it should wait until the start of the next season when more posters will be around - and hopefully at that time Jan will be feeling well enough to post here again.
Just another of my 2p's worth
BTW - Jacs - I hope things are not quite so bad - im still thinking of you and your family <img src="wink.gif" border="0">
Dec 10th, 2001, 07:54 PM
oh i is sorry too, not knowing what is happening with u and ur family????
For me, you appear to be lindsays news source. So........ you know the wta tour calendar 2002 the flourescent yellowy one, do you or anyone else have it and could tell me who the hell is on it? Is lindz featured or not.<br />Clearly i am in the uk and do not know who else i can ask, but you jacs being a knowledgable president and all, im sure will know.<br />thx<br />beckl
Dec 11th, 2001, 02:50 AM
thank you julie and beckl <img src="smile.gif" border="0">
actually, there are many more TOPs out there who are more knowledgeable than i am and more up to date like rachel roberts (our head spy) and vale <img src="smile.gif" border="0">
Dec 13th, 2001, 03:19 PM
Thanks for that compliment jacs <img src="smile.gif" border="0">
I would say that jacs should stay as president - you know the ropes and also you come up with some of the best ideas for the clan.
If you look over the past couple of years you have helped fuel the following:
The very start of the clan, TOP's - with out him we may not have had this club to start with
TOP website - I know it's vale's but jacs put across the idea
TOP Club - which is flurishing
TOP mailing list - although we don't use it as often as we should, it poses as a great tool when we need it most, like organising parties and other events.
TOP anniversary Party - I know I strated the party thread but it was jacs who suggested that's how we should celebrate it.
I'm sure there are many other things which jacs has done which I haven't mentioned, but he's been a great Prez and hopefully will continue to be a great Prez <img src="smile.gif" border="0">
After all, jacs is the 'founder' so why should someone else take over? Like someone said, "If it's not broken, it doesn't need fixing!" There's nothing wrong with TOP's as it is now, we just keep growing and growing!
catch you all later,<br />-Rachel (RayRob) <img src="graemlins/wavey.gif" border="0" alt="[Wavey]" />
Dec 15th, 2001, 04:44 AM
thank rache for your kind words <img src="smile.gif" border="0">
Dec 15th, 2001, 02:51 PM
I would like to candidate myself as an officer or something like that... As my Lindsay page is a tower of power page I'd like to become a more important member of the clan <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0"> ...<br /> is that possible?
Dec 17th, 2001, 10:18 PM
You have my vote, jacs.. you have been a great president & should only step down if YOU want to! <br /> <img src="smile.gif" border="0"> <br />I for one always appreciate your positive comments
