Board Member Election
Round 2

Since the first round of elections did not produce a complete new board, we are not holding a 2nd election.

What does the board do?
Basically they do all the boring stuff of organising the game, running tournaments, checking the scoring is correct, updating the rankings, looking to improve the game and trying to ensure the voting is as fair as possible, etc. Occasionally they also need to make an executive decision on one thing or another.

Who can vote?
Only posters who have taken part in GMT recently, ran a tournament or a duel or are regular voters here (voted more than 2 times) are allowed to vote. You will be sent another PM if you are eligible to vote. Other votes won't be counted.

How to vote!
This time simply select 2 people you would like to vote for in the poll above and post who you have voted for and why in this thread. You must vote for 2 people or your vote won’t be counted.

You have 48 hours to vote.

1. ArturoAce
Country: USA
Time Online: Roughly 18:00-8:00

Well, to start I have been on GMT for a decent amount of time, so I know the whereabouts, what to avoid, and what not to avoid. I have seen the good and bad of this game, and my application, I hope, will allow me to make this game better and maintain the fun we used to have. Along with this, I wish to use this position as an organizer rather than a principal to implement consequences. This game should not be infested with arguments, cheating, voting mishaps, or retarded arguments over nothing. I know we are all intelligent people, on some level :p, so please don't take this game down the drain if you are going to be that jerk. :) If I do not get elected, just please hear the previous part out. I don't want to see this game go in to shackles, and I think I would do a swell job at keeping it where we all want it to be.

2. Caraleede
Name:Cara B.
Country: Australia
Time Online: 5am-10am (More on weekends)

I think I could bring a lot to the Tour and bring the game to new levels. I like to think of myself as a fair judge and I have no problems discussing and making a joint decision with fellow members of a board. I am a part-time secretary so I have to have good organizational skills, but I also like to stay friendly with people and try to make things smoother and more efficient. As a board member I would aspire to bring my own ideas but not change the basis of the game. I would try to emulate previous board members to make myself comfortable in the position before assuming any power and making changes. Also, I would never consider my position one of solitude and always discuss issues with the board before coming to my personal decision. I love to work on a team and I thrive with responsibility, I would love the opportunity to work for a game that I am passionate about and enjoy. Thankyou.

3. Enia
Country: Norway
Time Online: 9am-10pm weekdays (more on weekends)

My timezone is GMT + 1. It might seem as I'm not around a lot if you notice my post count, but I can be more of the lurking kind. Whenever I'm by a computer, I usually check in on this place, so it's hard to put an excact time. I'd say I usually check in several times between 9am-10pm in weekdays at least, maybe sooner/later in weekends. I don't expect to get a lot of votes, if any, but i've got spare time so i'll give it a go. I obviously haven't been around for as long as many of the others have, but I've been around long enough to see what drama and desicions that sometimes need to be made. I don't think I would have a big problem at all with being as unbiased and fair as possible, as I am a pretty honest person and my concience would kill me if I wasn't. Like many others, I really enjoy this game, and I would like to contribute to keeping it that way and keep it as unproblematic as possible. I think communication is an important factor to get the board to work. The board needs to communicate well and need to actually be interested in making the game better for everyone. So if you think I'm suitable to be a part of the board I'd appreciate you vote, but if not, no hard feelings.

4. Heart
Country: Philippines
Time Online: 20:00pm-03:00am (school days) & 15:00pm-23:00pm (non school days)

Well since Stadia is already a board member others may think that we're gonna be online at the same time but we're not:P bcoz im usually online 20:00pm-03:00am (during school days) 15:00pm-23:00pm (during not school days, theyre not on weekends btw). First of all i just one to add myself to the list so there will be more options coz based from the previous nomination it was like 'its either them or him':p well i think i would be good board member bcoz i believe that i have good principles and that includes being fair & unbiased. i can be easily be talked to and will be open to everyone's suggestions. and im not easily bad tempered when it comes to heated discussions, im usually calm, i think its really important here in GMT sometimes.

5. Kai.
Country: USA
Time Online: 3-4pm & 9pm-8am

I am applying so the ones that are not on Europe can at least have a Board-member so if there is any "problem"/Q it can be fix/solve, and not wait till the board-members are online... I might not be a good GM but i have some pretty good ideas regarding to the game and to make it better. :wavey:

6. Marco Tennis
Country: Canada
Time Online: 11am-1pm & 9pm-4am

Along reading these lines, I know what most of you will be thinking: ''How dare you are to even show up.'' You know what I understand your concern. I was probably one of the most ''hated'' graphic maker of this 2009 year, but yet I don't think that makes me a bad person. I have come to understand, that this is just a game and it's about having fun and I want to take part into making sure it's well run and it's the best for everyone. I'm not asking anyone to forgive me, all I want his a second chance ;). I have proven over my suspension that I was able to lower it up and appreciate all the talent that's expose each and everyday through this game. I think I would make a great board member because I'm often online and I always answer the PM's that are sent to me, whether it's an insult one or a simply a question. Plus like I said I'm willing to change and I think I have proved it. Trust me I know what it is now to be sidelined and I know how hard it feels. Therefore, I think I will be good to make decisions in this regard. I think you learn from your mistake and I see this whole process as a proof to you all that I'm up to this challenge. I'm please and honored that I might be part of this Board ;) Best to all contestants. Sincerely, Marc.

7. Reetard
Country: England
Time Online: 12pm-6pm (sometimes during the night also)

' You all know most of my positives already :) I had subscribed to National Geographic and made a list of the places that I will never get to visit., I had added Cara and GMT Board to that. Now I want the cross off the later one. Oh and also, I want a kindler and gentler Nation.' Aaad cut.

8. Sexysova
Country: Czech Pepublic
Time Online: 3pm-10pm weekdays; 9am-11pm weekends

Why I applied: Well, I was trying to become a board member every year since I found this great game. I love to manage tournaments, I love all awesome graphics, I simply love this game and already spent a lot of time with this game. I would definitely would like to do more for this game and only being board member can allow me that. What I would improve: That's a really tough question. Well, I would like to improve communication between all players and also improve my own, I like to listen to others' opinions about how to improve something. I would like to run a magazine which was a great idea, would love to have one issue per month, would be awesome. And also many other things but I can't think of any, right now. Also collect all graphics since the beginning of 2010 and the best can be chosen to be posted in magazine issue in particular month. Also I would like to improve my ranking system, I think it's not good we have the same points for everything and as a ranking "manager" I would like to sort this out and make it more interesting. For sure there would be more ideas and suggestions but it usually comes with time. Why you should vote for me: Well, you know, it's only your vote but I would really appreciate it. I think I'm a great manager, I can organize things very well, I'm not competing anymore so I think I can't be biased at all and my opinion has to be mostly only objective. Of course, I like other players more than others but you know, it has to be forgotten when being a board member. I think I'm also online pretty much and from Europe and noone from Europe applied, I'm in the middle between all people who applied. So if you feel I could be the right person to be a board member, VOTE FOR ME! :)

9. Zvonarevarulz
Country: USA
Time Online: 9am-1pm & 10pm-1am Central time (More on Weekends)

People should vote for me because I'm approachable, unbiased, and organized. I'm not afraid to make tough decisions, and I play by the rules. I've been involved in GMT for a while now, and I know what works, and what doesn’t. I work well in a crisis, and I believe that is an important quality.I was on a team of three people for 9 years, and was also a coach, so I know how to work with a team. As a board member, I would bring ideas to the table to make GMT better, but I don't want to change the foundation of the game. I would listen to what the players have to say, because this is a game and it should be fun for the players. Thank You :)

Vote now!!!

reetard and arthur. both have exceptional experience in GMT and remain unbiased in their judgement of graphics. they are easy to talk to and cooperate well with others :)

Dec 17th, 2009, 12:41 PM
Oh dang, I voted even before the application 'forms' have been posted :tape:

Still, I vote for Arthur and Brad. It makes sense as Arthur is from North America, and Brad represents Europe. I can also see on how they are very much respected in GMT. Also, both are approachable and have been in GMT for a very long time.

Caraleede: For the previous reasons. She is new to the game but yet so interested it's hard to believe she can be biased ;)

Reetard: He is simply the GOAT of GMT. :worship: My vote goes to him because....I'm speechless :p

Dec 17th, 2009, 01:28 PM
Heart: she's been around for a long time and she know the game well
Enia: one of the most balanced, level-headed members

Dec 17th, 2009, 01:38 PM
Brad and Jen. :) I thought Arthur needed to catch up with schoolwork :p

Dec 17th, 2009, 01:46 PM
Caraleede and Enia - both for the same reasons, they are both great individualist - they are not catched by mass psychology, both are from the different parts of the world, both are friendly and I believe they have many pleasant ideas for the game. ;)

Dec 17th, 2009, 02:21 PM
Arthur and Enia. Neither of them ever caused any trouble around here and with them added to already chosen Stadia we should have all time zones covered :)

Dec 17th, 2009, 02:30 PM
I won't make, why did I even bother :spit:

Cara and Brad, different timezones, both unbiased, both well-organized, could do the best out of all :)

Dec 17th, 2009, 02:55 PM
Oops, i forgot to read the rules :o. Sorry Sean.

Dec 17th, 2009, 04:20 PM
Brad & Cara.

Dec 17th, 2009, 04:20 PM
Oops, i forgot to read the rules :o. Sorry Sean.


Dec 17th, 2009, 04:58 PM
Kristin and Brad:)

Dec 17th, 2009, 04:59 PM

I can discount 1 of your votes for you. Which do you want to be removed?

Reetard - Brad knows the good and bad sides of this wonderful game, has plenty of experience and I think he would do great as a board member. :)
Sexysova - Ondrej is really dedicated to taking care of the rankings and I think he can do well at all the other aspects of managing this game. :)

Dec 17th, 2009, 09:39 PM
reetard-he puts so much effort into this game and i know he will really improve the level of gmt
jen-she's been here for so long and knows what to expect and how to deal with everything.

Dec 17th, 2009, 11:53 PM
I can discount 1 of your votes for you. Which do you want to be removed?

Heart :sad: sorry Kristin :hysteric:

Dec 18th, 2009, 02:57 PM
I voted Brad and Cara. If there was a third one I would have voted Sexysova.

Cara has the enthusiasm and is on a LOT, and Brad has the experience and knowledge of GMT. Together I think they would make a great team as both have the passion for the game.

Dec 18th, 2009, 03:02 PM
Sorry, i will not vote (I keep thinking that someone that is on the election shouldt vote :o)

Dec 18th, 2009, 03:02 PM
0 votes for Marco:lol:

Dec 18th, 2009, 03:12 PM
Nothing personal with Arthur, but I don't think we should have a GM mod as a board here. There is enough sh!t to deal with in GM anyway. :unsure:

Dec 18th, 2009, 03:35 PM
Heart - I always see he here and I like his words.
Caraleede - I like your enthusiasm.

I would vote for Reetard, but he will win without my vote :yeah:

Dec 18th, 2009, 05:35 PM
Brad - He's really committed to the game & always willing to help out.
Arthur - A really mature guy, It will be good to have a Board Member from USA.

Dec 18th, 2009, 05:39 PM
I voted for Arthur and Enia. One of the reasons is that if they were chosen along with Stadia, 3 major time zones would be represented by the board (good luck with the board meeting :lol: :help:). Arthur has been consistent in the game and poved to be a good tournament runner while I must say Enia made a good case with her application. Good luck to everyone :)

Dec 18th, 2009, 11:22 PM

I know...:sad:, but for some reasons I don't think it's funny :sad:

Good luck to you all ;)

Dec 19th, 2009, 01:29 AM
Brad :bigclap: I don't think there would be anyone better to bring the FUN back into GMT.

And Ondrej :) I mis-voted and clicked Jen at first, but I would like to recast my vote as Sexysova please. He has been a positive force in the game doing the rankings and has applied for the board before. He has the ability to be unbiased and would provide a perfect balance to Brad and Stadia IMO. There would be no better choice for the third member.

Dec 19th, 2009, 11:31 AM

Congrats to reetard, Enia and ArturoAce. :yeah: Good luck to us :)

As for the former board members, thank you for your time and service in organizing the game. :)

Dec 19th, 2009, 03:21 PM
I think a four board team will be awesome. :yeah:

Good luck guys, you will do great. :worship:

Dec 19th, 2009, 03:32 PM

Oh and Ksenia's avie and banner are :hearts:

Good luck guys and congrats on getting chosen :yeah: I'm sure you'll do a good job. (make sure to read the rules before starting :lol: then you can change whatever you (don't) like)

And thanks Sean for taking care of the election ;)

Dec 19th, 2009, 04:04 PM
nothing against Enia but seriously? :help: she did nothing to the game since she started playing, I'm sorry to say that but this is really biased :help:

congrats to the new board anyway :D :yeah:

Dec 19th, 2009, 04:12 PM
nothing against Enia but seriously? :help: she did nothing to the game since she started playing, I'm sorry to say that but this is really biased :help:

congrats to the new board anyway :D :yeah:

that's why people voted for her ;)

Dec 19th, 2009, 04:13 PM
that's why people voted for her ;)

for doing no contribution to the game? okay :spit: nvm, I got used to this happens only in GMT :lol:

she played two tournaments, doesn't post much in GMT and is even not online much :help:

Dec 19th, 2009, 04:15 PM

I won't discredit Enia, because she is a lovely person. But yeah obviously she is still new to the game and we haven't seen what she can do yet, and I admit I was a little surprised that she got so many votes (don't take it personally :p). Hopefully that will change when she gets on the board, and proves that she is worthy and capable of the spot. :)

Dec 19th, 2009, 04:18 PM
again I want to repeat: NOTHING PERSONAL AGAINST YOU, ENIA!!! :hug: :)

Dec 19th, 2009, 04:26 PM
nothing against Enia but seriously? :help: she did nothing to the game since she started playing, I'm sorry to say that but this is really biased :help:

Sometimes it is better not to say or do anything than to say or do the wrong thing. She unlike some applicants (I am not gonna point fingers) never caused any drama in the game :p

Dec 19th, 2009, 04:32 PM
To be honest I think all of us has caused some degree of drama to the game, but honestly how can we ever move on if we don't forgive and forget? :lol:

Anyway, as much as I would love to see a catfight between queens and bitches, I'd hate to take the moment away for the four elected members. :worship: So let's just stick to :bigclap:-ing. :) :p Here's to a better 2010. :armed:

Guys the election is over, if you have any problem with a particular elected member, please send your concerns to the other 3 board members. We have 4 board members now, so its not like there is going to be a one person monopoly.

Dec 19th, 2009, 04:39 PM
sorry guys, you have to get in the board spirit :lol: we promise to be good :angel:
