    Hello everybody!

    FTSC standing member elections, call for votes
    ==============================================

    Voting for FTSC standing members commences on Sunday, 17 February,
    2019, 20:00 UTC.

    All RCs are entitled to vote. Each voter may cast one "yes"
    or one "no" vote for each candidate. Voters need not vote for all can- didates, a non vote will be regarded as "abstain" for that candidate. Candidates must receive more "yes" than "no" votes to be elected.

    Although not required, voters are encouraged to consult their
    constituency before casting their votes. Debate with the candidates
    is also encouraged. No need to hurry.

    Voting ends on Sunday, 3 March 2019, 20:00 UTC.

    The status of RC's will be determined by nodelist.025 of this year
    by the list as issued by the ZC in the zone where they reside.

    This is the list of nominees.

    Candidate Node nr. Nmntd by Accepted
    Carol Shenkenberger 1:275/100 RC13 Yes

    Voters are requested to copy and paste the form below, mark a
    cross for each candidate in the "yes" or the "no" column for all
    candidates they wish to cast a vote for and post it in FTSC_PUBLIC

    Andrew,

    Voting for FTSC standing members commences on Sunday, 17 February,
    2019, 20:00 UTC.

    In view of the fact that we should be happy there are candidates willing to accept the job and there's no Bob Seaborn to make it a political circus, I move
    all the candidates are elected.

    After having consulted the sysops in R20, formerly R20, R21, R22 and R23, here is the participation from

    R20: three votes (including mine)
    R21: zero votes
    R22: zero votes
    R23: zero votes

    Since this, by far, is less than what's required by the Swedish constitution
    to make up a valid election outcome, I regretfully must post this summary:

    | Name | Node nr | Yes| No |

    | Ozz Nixon | 1:275/362 | | |
    | Nick Andre | 1:229/426 | | |
    ----------------------------------------------

    In other words, an overwhelming majority don't give a damn.

    addressed to "Election Coordinator with a subject of "Vote".

    I hope that the vote from R20 will count, even if the above requirement was a wee bit to hard to accomplish. If you had posted the above from Election Coordinator with the proper subject line, it would have been much easier...

    This made me think of something that my (German) grandfather used to say:

    "Warum es einfach machen wenn es so schn kompliziert sein kann."

    According to Google Translate it means:

    "Why make it easy if it can be so complicated."

    I disagreed, it missed the entire thought behind it, so I suggested the following:

    "Why make it easy if it can be made so beautifully complicated."

    Was I wrong? RFC!

    And yes, it's suggestions like this by anyone, that makes Google Translate better and better all the time. I've done it a lot of times, mostly when translating to Swedish, but also to English. I urge all of you who enjoy this fantastic service by Google to make your contributions.

    Yeah, well, you probably can't if you are monolingual. :(
