    All candidates received approval by a majority of the voters casting ballots, and will therefore be accepted into the FTSC unless something drastic happens during the next week which allows opportunity to contest the votes.

    The period for contesting votes ends on Sunday, 10 March 2019 at 20:00 UTC. If no votes are contested, the new members will be installed on Monday, 11 March 2019.

    No, it doesn't mean that at all. The zone is there, they just
    succumbed to apathy and did not participate.

    As your credibility approaches zero, I can only confirm my
    statement above ... the Zone is there but chooses not to be very
    active. Simple fact, easily verified.

    Hard to believe an actual ZC acts/speaks this way. Just about
    everything you post is in some way nit-picking or negative. I bet
    you're a real fun guy at parties, eh?

    Please get your act together and act in a manner consistent with
    your position.

    Hi Janis,

    I can only confirm my initial statement ... an entire zone is
    missing in action, not just during this election.

    Strange... I still connect with 3 solid links in Z4. It is not a huge number of links, but even your own network is extremely small in number these days :)

    I do not dispute that but you know as well as I do that after Nick Andre has been in office for 8+ months now, ZC4 claims he's sending stuff to ZC1 direct but actually is sending it to you. I tried explaining him in english and spanish there has been a change of ZC but to no avail. I've had help from within the zone and there's still no change. And you know he's totally absent in the ZCC.

    As for solid links, you've always had those. But do you have contact? I also have a number of people on autopilot on my system who solidly download whatever, never upload anything, never participate. I've got an RC who only talks via Messenger and anotherone I finally got hold of via LinkedIn. Both link, connect and download daily...

    This message was missed, due to the incorrect addressee. If Paul
    chooses to challenge this ballot's exclusion, I will certainly consider amending the results. However, it will make no difference, as all candidates had well over a majority of ballots cast anyway.

    No challenge from me, it was human error and as you say no impact on results. :)

    I object against going on record as having submitted a vote after the polls closed. The sysops of R28 decided to not participate in the election. My message was a statement to that effect. It was not a vote. The intent of the statement was to avoid R28 being labelled as a region with no active RC or active sysops.

    So out of 32 listed RCs, 17 casted a valid vote. One vote was too late and 14 RCs did not vote.

    I'm not sure what these gentlemen actually think they bring to Fidonet except their year long bitch fests about things that no-one else gives a damn about. It's like we where 25000+ nodes again.. except we are not.

    I will not contest the validity of the election. But there is a reason R28 decided to not cast a vote. And it is not lazyness, indifference, apathy or inertia...

    It has to be correct reported, to avoid discussion later on.

    The prime "official Fidonet channel" is Fidonews. I have not seen the results published there...

    Really? FidoNews is the "offical" channel for reporting of FTSC
    election results? Not the FTSC echo itself, eh?

    That seems a little.... strange.

    Well, OK. Assuming the results get published in the next FidoNews
    (are you listening, Bjorn?), we can hope to hear from you then...

    Fidonews is the only time-track throughout Fidonet's history that is searchable.

    The prime "official Fidonet channel" is Fidonews. I have not
    seen the results published there...

    Really? FidoNews is the "offical" channel for reporting of FTSC
    election results?

    Fidonews is the official channel for any Fidonet related announcement. Together
    with the nodelist, it is the glue that keeps us together.

    Not the FTSC echo itself, eh?

    Echomail is not covered by P4 according to the powers that be in your neck of the woods.

    So... How are you doing with moving forward to IPv6?

    Yes, you're correct on that.

    This little conversation is a PERFECT example of the bullshit that
    goes on in FidoNet. The dude who's Region "didn't want to vote"
    can't just come out and tell me *WHY*. He has to come up with
    some reason to delay it, and then that evolves into this chickshit
    "reason". There's always something. Everybody's got a secret.

    I'm not talking about echomail or P4. The simple question is why
    did your Region choose not to vote in the FTSC election. The
    results have been published by the FTSC administrator, and are
    final. There's no reason you can't just tell me why you chose not
    to vote. Why do you want to play these silly games?

    So... How are you doing with moving forward to IPv6?

    I'll answer that when you answer my question, and I'll do it
    promptly with no further delaying tactics.

    Yes, I see that. FidoNews is mentioned many times as something
    which the various *Cs are required to provide/forward. It says
    that FidoNews is "an important medium by which FidoNet sysops
    communicate with each other". OK, fine. That is all true.

    It does *NOT* state that FidoNews is the medium used to promulgate
    any election results. In fact, P4 does state, in section 8.2,
    that changes to Policy itself are *officially* distributed by
    notification in the weekly NodeDiff file.

    There is nothing in there about FTSC positions, elections, etc;
    and that is expected.

    So, can someone tell me why the one RC who went out of his way to
    inform everyone that his Region did not want to vote in the FTSC
    member election, feels like he has to wait for some "official"
    pronouncement of those results before he can reveal the reasons
    that he/they didn't want to vote?

    The article was submitted to Bjorn on March 12th. Unfortunately, it was rejected by the software used to produce the FidoNews, due to some lines that were over 70 characters. The article has been corrected and resubmitted; I expect that it should be published in tomorrow's issue.

    When I asked you when you would share the reason for not voting,
    you said (paraphrasing from memory): "Not until after the results
    are released in official channels". That certainly implies that
    you *would* share after the official release.

    Are you saying now that you are not going to tell the reason?

    No, it does not imply that. Your logic is flawed.

    Yeah, OK. Just read your reason in the new FidoNews.

    Seems to me that not voting doesn't accomplish anything, save
    perhaps making you feel better or that you "took a stand".

    If you really were not in favor of some/all of the candidates,
    wouldn't a "NO" vote have sent a better message, and perhaps had
    an influence on the outcome?

    Is it allowable for somebody (you) to actively "campaign" against
    somebody? Like do some public advertisements stating why you feel
    they should not be elected?

    Certainly some private Netmails to other RCs could have been sent,
    right?

    Perhaps you didn't want others to know that you were against
    particular candidates?

    Anyway... it's over until the next election. Thanks for at least
    writing up the reason for publication.

    That and other things have been tried over the last decade. No result.

    If nothing works, the only thing left is to just walk away from the game. That way one at least stops wasting one's most precious commodity: time.

    Michiel,

    I read your "reasoning" in today's FidoNews. Personally, I have a lot of respect for a whole Region that can come together and work as one... so Kudos!

    Now, as a n00b to the polical aspects of Fidonet, I do ponder when does the slate get cleared and people move forward? To be honest, I am 52 and until the recent FTSC election I have had no experience in "first hand involvement" in an
    election process.

    I was raised in Germany (Bitburg in the house!), I am an American Citizen, however, I do not participate in American voting (for my own reasons). However,
    I have owned and operated businesses with a few hundred employees - and I know
    getting 90% or more of the people inspired and happy is a challenge.

    This hobby is *very* dear to me - I am motivated by the nostalgic feeling I experience everytime there is a new message, user waiting verification, etc. I still get excited. I started rewriting all of my previous efforts from scratch to hopefully preserve that great feeling for others.

    I joined in Fido as a way to see who is doing what in the BBS community. From
    day one (v2.0 of BBSing for me) Jan-1-2017, I have ran my own code where possible. I did not join to perpetuate a historic wrong doing (if that is the case, only have your side of the story, which I accept as there was some type of wrong doing to Mr. Felten). And I know the n00b-ness will wear off, however,
    I would hope it goes away because it has been an enjoyable hobby -- not that the constant fighting has pushed me away [honestly was damn close -- and I know
    in some of your eyes and experience, I have not experienced anything yet].

    Anyway, I respect R28's unity (again Kudos), and look forward to learning more, probably stepping on many toes along the way, however, that is how I learn. I like your last statement "no longer playing this silly game"...

    O.

    You either have native support for it from your ISP (good!).
    If not you can use a tunnel (not so good ;).

    You can get a free tunnel from https://ipv6.he.net/

    Thank you, Richard, for that info! I'll be checking things out,
    appreciate the reply.

    I'm not doing well with that at all. In fact I have done nothing
    with it.

    So much for "moving forward"...

    Well, to be fair, I have never said a single word about "moving
    forward" with IPv6. I don't think the subject is extrememly
    relevant to the previous discussions in here about moving Fido
    forward. It's not IPv4 which is hindering FidoNet in any way.

    It's a subject that I know only the basics about, such as why it
    is needed. Not sure if my options depend on what my internet
    service provider offers, or what. I'll look into it, and am all

    The first step would be to join us in the IPv6 echo. That is
    where the expertise is. It is available at your uplink.

    I'll inquire about it. Thanks.

    You're more than welcome to fix it; Renegade is open-source. Already told you I don't have the time. Complaints about the Reply kludge, to me is the same
    as the Spelling/Grammar/Nodelist Police or lacking a precious IPV6 address.

    Hello Ward,

    I barely can find the time to shave my face -- why anyone would spend
    his time shaving his backside is beyond me.

    Real men have beards ...

    Yes.

    I never understood the concept of shaving ...

    It is not only time consuming, but also painfull to many people.

    For the same reason I do not understand the concept of wearing ties.
    It is proven that kill's men.
    I was allways hating wearing ties from the beginning when I was a child.

    So at FidoNet meetings I donot even wear a tie either,
    to stay on topic here ;-).

    Henri.

    I can't grow a beard. I can grow a moustache and some facial hair
    enough to rock a Fu Manchu but I can't grow any hair on the rest of my
    jaws or cheeks. So I've remained clean shaven since I joined the Army
    in 1995. My hair is very slow-growing so I can shave once or twice a
    week and get away with that.

    ??? again
    Either you get native support from your provider.
    Or _YOU_ implement a tunnel yourself.

    For the second case you do not need a "support call".
    For the first case you do not need a tunnel.
