Board Member Election

3 people applied for the position as the 3rd board member.
The 3 are M17., Yana and Poiree.
Vote in the poll for whoever you think would do the best job. You can vote for as many out of the 3 as you want to.
To vote you need to have a connection to GMT, regular vote or graphics maker. If a contestant is caught cheating, he/she will be disqualified.

The voting will end Wednesday, 3rd of June at 12.30PM CET.
Good luck to all the people who applied!

You can see the applications here:

Poiree:
I would like to be a part of the GMT board again. I think I deserve to be picked as I was already a member and I think I proved I am capable of taking over this job. I also promise I won't quit again!

My vote goes for Poiree and Yana, both are probably the most matured members of this small part of the forum.

M17 :hug:

I was hoping we would be electing the whole board, not just the 3rd member :sad:
Anyway, my vote is for Poiree & Yana :)

Maybe we should have a poll for if people want the whole board to be elected or just the one missing member.

I also thought it would be better to have elections for whole board..

Poiree
May 31st, 2009, 01:46 PM
I agree with Niya and Ondrej about the whole new board election :) but I doubt that will happen :o

Poiree
May 31st, 2009, 01:51 PM
true, and I doubt we will be seeing the other one anytime soon :rolleyes: I mean we haven't until now. I don't think that will change. So right now there is nobody to be in charge :(

Did M17 nominate himself as a joke or smth?

Public poll? :weirdo:

OMG Andreas got banned :eek:

Is it temporarily?

Adal
May 31st, 2009, 02:05 PM
He's banned for 1 week.

So who's in charge now? :eek:

Poiree
May 31st, 2009, 04:52 PM
Gigi should be, but I am not sure he is around :o

InsideOut.
May 31st, 2009, 05:03 PM
So is there a backup plan ... who'll make the decisions if Gigi isn't around? :o

Poiree
May 31st, 2009, 05:04 PM
obviosly nobody... I will ask Andreas though :)

Ksenia.
May 31st, 2009, 05:17 PM
Even when Gigi is around he doesn't pay much attention to GMT-related stuff, huh?

Poiree
May 31st, 2009, 05:19 PM

I know :( but unfortunately we don't have the power to do anything about it

BTW, Andreas just wants you all to know that his ban has been extended until 14th June, so he won't be here until then.

Sexysova
May 31st, 2009, 05:31 PM
well, I think if all players agree we can elect the new board :shrug:

Poiree said we have no power but actually Andreas & Gigi could do nothing if we want to have the new board, they have no chance to react :lol:

Poiree
May 31st, 2009, 05:35 PM
I kinda agree, but I wouldn't really like to deal with any of them once they eventually come here and realize they aren't in the board :help:

Sorry for the delay - been having a busy weekend...

On topic - Even though I see no reason for a whole new board (Noone said that the last two times we chose the new board member) if people really want, then I suppose i'm okay with it. Post your oppinion here please. :)

im for choosing a new board.

Petkorazzi
May 31st, 2009, 07:00 PM
There were always people not happy with the board :shrug:

Ksenia.
May 31st, 2009, 07:03 PM
It seems to me the amount of these people has been increasing lately. Maybe it's just me though :shrug:

Sexysova
May 31st, 2009, 07:32 PM
I'm for a new board as well, it's nothing personal against Gigi & Andreas, they're not doing horrible job, just I think there're ppl who would do it better :hug: and ppl who has more time :)

Sean.
May 31st, 2009, 07:48 PM
I would like to vote on a new board please. Nothing personal against either of you as you are both nice people. But it seems that one person in particular doesn't have enough time or care enough to run the game at the moment.

Poiree
May 31st, 2009, 08:04 PM
There were always people not happy with the board :shrug:

of course, but lately the board is (or cannot) do much and I think this is the reason a change is needed.

I also agree with Sean that one member in particular obviously doesn;t have enough time for the job ;)

I would like a to vote for a new board too please, nothing personal against Gigi (whom I like) and Andreas (who is alright too). :)

Petkorazzi
May 31st, 2009, 08:07 PM
Okay then.

Sexysova
May 31st, 2009, 08:22 PM
should I start the thread where people should apply for being a board member? or people could nominate three people and then the people with biggest number of nominations will be in the poll? :shrug:

Sean.
May 31st, 2009, 08:23 PM
Does these mean that this poll no longer counts?

Sexysova
May 31st, 2009, 08:30 PM
I think so :)

mckyle.
May 31st, 2009, 09:39 PM
And I was doing so well too :(

:( Well for the next Board would be better to have 1 member from USA.. so if be have a question and is midnight in Europa.. be can ask to this guy and he will be available :p

ArturoAce.
Jun 1st, 2009, 05:58 AM
^^i agree.

maybe an aussie like droolv. who is active and online with the europeans and americans.

Ksenia.
Jun 1st, 2009, 12:15 PM
I don't think we should choose board member by nationalities, rather by their qualities :shrug:

Petkorazzi
Jun 1st, 2009, 03:10 PM
^ Timezone is important also.

Sean.
Jun 1st, 2009, 03:23 PM
Not if the person in that timezone is never online anyway, or is completely innept and unable to make decisions. :shrug: I agree with Niya.

Sexysova
Jun 1st, 2009, 03:28 PM
I agree with Niya as well :)

Ciarán
Jun 1st, 2009, 03:29 PM
I agree with Gigi. It only makes sense.

Ksenia.
Jun 1st, 2009, 03:33 PM
Not to mention that the board should get together in order to make some decisions which will be hard if the members are in different timezones :shrug: I don't insist on anything just my opinion :)

Sexysova
Jun 1st, 2009, 03:40 PM
yes, that's the reason why it's better to have the board where ppl are in the similar timezone :)

InsideOut.
Jun 1st, 2009, 04:09 PM
Another thing I'd like to suggest - when a board member goes on vacation or can't be online for a few days, I think he/she should appoint someone to fill in for a few days. :)

kai.
Jun 1st, 2009, 09:28 PM
Sorry but iam with gigi,
Have different board members with different timezones is better to the game and to help the manager..
Example yesterday.. i got that "problem" with 1 graphic.. i waited 8hrs to have a reply.. If one of the members got a timezone with -2 or -3 or was an aussie i wouldnt have that problem.
And the what niya sais' is not true they can't have trouble with the meeting, because they can meet from 19hs GMT to 24hs GMT.. and here is afternoon.. so :p ..
Iam not trying to say than i can be a board member, i don't want to, to much work.. but have at least 1 member from 3 or 4 with an "American" or "Aussie" timezone would be the best..

Sexysova

it's not better because one board member can't decide anything without next two :)

Poiree
Jun 2nd, 2009, 07:19 AM
it's not better because one board member can't decide anything without next two :)

that is not true. If there is an emergency, if the decision is needed quickly then the member who sees it first, can react :p

The board however has to discuss when it comes to some more complicated issues (especially sth that is not covered in the rules) or bringing new rules.

Sexysova
Jun 2nd, 2009, 08:49 AM
well then ok.. but I would agree with that only if it's sth simple which is written in rules :)

Poiree
Jun 2nd, 2009, 09:37 AM
of course, I also think once some more rules are added it won't be a problem. We should have all the most common problems written in the rules :p
