Thumbs up RPMUD Network Election 2009 Information

The RPMUD Network Operating Committee consists of five standing members and three members elected from and by the community of Role-Play MU*s. The annual election for these three seats is the first weekend in December (Saturday, December 5 and Sunday, December 6). Any MU* with a policy of enforced role-play may opt to run a candidate for one of the three elected seats. Only the games themselves may select a candidate for these seats but their candidate may be anyone they choose. To do so, please email staff<at>rpmud<dot>net with the name of your game's candidate, their contact information so we can verify they wish to run, and the name and contact information of your game which is sponsoring them to us by November 26. We will verify the information and contact you again before the election. We will also be emailing as many RP MU*s as we can find contact information for in the following weeks but if you see this post and know of a game that qualifies, please pass on the information. Ballots will be emailed to every RP MU* on December 5. Good luck!

Re: RPMUD Network Election 2009 Information

Had trouble finding this post, so I thought I'd give it a tiny bump in case anyone else is interested. There's a deadline involved, so don't miss it!

Re: RPMUD Network Election 2009 Information

The RPMUD Network Elections are rapidly approaching and the deadline to submit a candidate is by Friday, November 27. Candidates from any Role-Play enforced/mandatory game may be chosen by whatever means the game wishes to employ and should be emailed to staff<at>rpmud<dot>net with the candidate's name, contact email and name of the sponsoring game. A confirmation email will be sent to the MU* and to the candidate to verify the candidacy.

The following is the schedule for the RPMUD Network 2009 elections:

Quote:
Tuesday, November 24: Election information mailed to all open RP-enforced games with valid, available contact email addresses.

Friday, November 27: Deadline for candidate submission is midnight (PST).

Monday, November 30: Operating Committee verifies candidates as legitimate and approves ballots.

Friday, December 4: Appropriate ballots are sent to every open RP-enforced game with contact email.

Sunday, December 6: Deadline for returning ballots is midnight (PST).

Monday, December 7: Operating Committee meets to count of ballots and verify winners.

Tuesday, December 8: Winners and other candidates emailed; announcements made on webpage, TMS and TMC.

Thursday, December 31: 2009 term ends at midnight (PST).

Friday, January 1: 2010 terms begin.

Monday, January 4: First Operating Committee meeting of 2010; new members sworn in; election of chair, vice-chair and secretary.
Again, any Role-Play enforced/mandatory MU* may submit a candidate for one of the three open seats on the Operating Committee by emailing staff<at>rpmud<dot>net with the name of the candidate, their contact email and the name of the game that is sponsoring them.

Thank you and good luck to all the candidates!
