    Alexey,

    And - immediately - next bottom hit: self-approvement by election coordinator.

    There's a reason why I suggested to have an external election coordinator.

    The previous election someone even nominated himself, ACK-ed himself, accepted himself and acknowledged the self-acceptance of the self-ACK-ed self-nomination... that person was the administrator, election-coordinator, nominating RC and candidate, all in one juggling nodenumbers.

    Sure, it doesn't make it less inappropriate.

    It's like "Nobody is going to nominate me and I badly want in, so let me nominate myself". It's a weakness, just as a confirmed candidate running his own election.

    If you wanted to be a candidate, all you had to do was ask me to find an RC willing to nominate you and it would happen.

    There's a reason why the larger Fidonet of Yore limited hats but I'm afraid we no longer can do that cleanly.

    I do agree with you that dusting off the 'rules' is a good idea, but it's hard to do in the middle of an election. Frankly, one of the other RC's will do the honors if there is a problem.

    Correct. It has not been uncommon to just ask here 'who wants to run' as you might recall in the 90's.

    I see no harm in it. Anyone seen if Paul Quinn might be willing? Ozz Nixon might be worth investigating as well?

    I guess that you also see no harm in voting for self?

    It may be a specific Nordic country thing, but here we have what is called Jantelagen:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Law_of_Jante

    I've been running in many elections during my 30 years in Fidonet, but I have never ever voted for myself. In one FTSC election I even lost with the single vote that I could have given myself. This was one of the many times when
    Black Hole Bob managed to get his RC gang to vote against any Z2 candidate.

    In the cases we have, we knew they would be recommenended so it was a mere procedure to follow.

    Conversely I mentioned a node here I feel will do well. I emailed him and he's happy. He needs an RC recommendation but suspect it will be along pretty soon from someone. As an NC, I can suggest a candidate but not get them on the list.

    Perhaps you have oters who might be overlooked to suggest?

    I'm happy to nominate any brave soul I consider suitable. OTOH, I'm double-double thinking about even voting this time around. E.g., we seem to have ended up with an administrator wanting to be a member as well. Did I get that right? Is that even kosher?

    Grin, It's an oddity of the rules that Andrew has to run also. That is why after thisis over, we dust off the rules and fix then up a bit. It's really silly to vote in a new coordinator one month then have to vote thatthey are even a member the next month.

    I think you should run. You have a voice of sanity. I can't nominate you as I am not an RC, but if you say you consider it, I bet RC's start tossing your name in right away.

    I have no mandate to nominate but if no-one does, I will ask my RC to do so.

    The thing is, however, people running and being elected (which is the case for most if not all) need to be part of the exercise and not just be lurking in the
    background. FTSC-membership is not an honorary title, it's a work-commitment.

    Thanks for the perspective Ward. I am not a lurker (sounds fun though), I am dedicated to the BBS community, and have been busy building my own mailers, revisions to JAMAPI, helping other authors, etc. During this, I have found areas that should be explained a little more detail, deprecated, or working examples or test systems to help validate.

    For the rest, Ozz takes down the outbound tossing on his end when he's working anythng that could cause a backflash like we just saw from another net recently. It's never obvious to me on when he's doing that as we don't read the same echos. The information comes from a late 2017 or so message from him.

    Sure, it doesn't make it less inappropriate.

    and yet our friend nominated and voted for himself in another FTSC related election ;)

    If you wanted to be a candidate,

    that was already voiced and stated in the earlier posts about this election... four said yes, they would like to run again... one got nominated almost immediately... nothing happened with the other three so i queried and was told i could self nominate as well as nominate more than one person... since it had been several days since the start of the period and nothing else appeared to be
    being done, i decided to make my post...

    all you had to do was ask me to find an RC willing to nominate you

    i am an RC. do i not count?

    and it would happen.

    how many RCs are on the FTSC or have been this last time around? any of them could have but no one did... the statements of willingness had already been made...

    Yet another bottom hit: self-nomination.

    I agree.

    is this a pot and kettle thing? our friend has nominated and voted for himself in at least one past FTSC related election...

    Until now here were only votes for self.

    An even lower bottom hit IMnsHO.

    i didn't set the bar...

    Correct. It has not been uncommon to just ask here 'who wants to run' as you might recall in the 90's.

    that was asked in the other echo and responded to by all except one... those positions of willingness were also forwarded in here as part of the original election related posts...

    I see no harm in it.

    thank you :)

    Anyone seen if Paul Quinn might be willing? Ozz Nixon might be worth investigating as well?

    i'll leave this alone for now as i know that there is movement afoot elsewhere ;)

    I get that right? Is that even kosher?

    the outgoing chair was a member as well as the chair... there's no rules against that in the charter... it may even be mentioned as specifically allowed...

    Yes...

    Publication: FTA-1003
    Revision: 24

    I should have looked first. My bad. But OTOH, at every voting round I find it
    awkward nor knowing who is 'up' for a refresh of membership aside from new volunteers. Advice of the list of members whose term has been exhausted ought to be a part of the process of the new election.

    Thank you for the head smack. ;)

    Cheers,
    Paul.

    Some more than you imagine. Also, not every echomail need a comment.
