[member] Nominations 2007 Part I

Post by Edi » 2007-04-10 02:27pm

Time we added someone to the Senate. Since the non-mod Senators and most of the mods as well have not seen fit to nominate anyone, I'll be doing that now.

I nominate Hotfoot, who frankly should have been added long ago.

Some examples:

Transporter Death thread
Okay, NOW Sony's in touble. (FF related)
Another Console thread in G&C

There are numerous other examples from Gaming & Computers where Hotfoot is one of the most solid contributors and he has a good record in N&P for making logical, well thought out arguments when he ventures there.

Previous nominations who did not get added earlier were Noble Ire and Wyrm, links to whose merits were provided in this thread that led to the poll which eventually added Simplicius to the Senate ranks.

Note that I'm not renominating either Wyrm or Noble Ire, just providing a reference point to save everyone else the trouble of searching through threads. Unless you want to go and look, of course.

Hell yes

"Either God wants to abolish evil, and cannot; or he can, but does not want to. ... If he wants to, but cannot, he is impotent. If he can, but does not want to, he is wicked. ... If, as they say, God can abolish evil, and God really wants to do it, why is there evil in the world?" -Epicurus

Fear is the mother of all gods.

Nature does all things spontaneously, by herself, without the meddling of the gods. -Lucretius

Hotfoot has been nominated and seconded, and will be placed on the ballot later this month. Anyone else care to cast a nomination?

This Senator nominates Noble Ire, whose ample qualifications have already been ably described by the honorable Senator Surlethe on 3 September 2006. The quality of his written work and of his reasoning is exceptionally good, and he has been a noted contributor to the board in general for quite some time.

We currently have two nominations before the Senate. Just as an announcement to everyone I'm going to leave the floor open for nominations until the 1st of May at which point I'll open the voting thread and send out the noticies. If there is anyone else you think we should consider please nominate and get them seconded before close of buisness 4/30 by which I mean whenever I manage to log on that evening.
