Re: Election format - NOT VOTING IS A VOTE *** Vote in CTF

Then who is the president and the vice in the current mod team ? Moderators should agree if to delete a post, ban a person, move a thread etc. Why do we need moderator philosophies read out before election ? People have a different way of interpreting the charter, different "limits" on when a discu...

Re: Election format - NOT VOTING IS A VOTE *** Vote in CTF

I distinctly remember you making a lot of noise about the past moderators before becoming a moderator yourself. Well some people do not like the current one either. I for one do not like how the programming section is handled (can't say much about the rest). If I say a post does not belong in that ...

Re: Election format - NOT VOTING IS A VOTE *** Vote in CTF

There have been over 250 individual members visit the board since I started the poll on how to run the upcoming moderator election, but only 50 or so have voted. Should I conclude that those who know about the poll but do not vote are content with the status quo? If you care at all about the electi...

Re: Election format - NOT VOTING IS A VOTE *** Vote in CTF

I for one detest voting for a team. And why do you dispose off the "minorities" like you just did. Don't we have voices too ? When the democrats go against the republicans, do all the seats get taken by the winner ? If that was the case, the republicans wouldn't have the power they have now. There ...

Re: July moderator elections - new format

Aren't we supposed to be having a poll to see if people want teams 1st? Or is this just being imposed with 0 mandate? The first post in the thread seems to indicate prety clearly that we're having team elections. although i am willing to give it a try i will not be voting in the elections if this i...

Re: Topalov vs Anand Game 12

Interesting match. Anand did not play well (judging from his blunders and missed opportunities) but Topalov played worse. Feel bad for Topalov's last game performance as a player of his caliber should be able to passively defend such positions to a draw (though this is a clear Topalov weakness). Wa...
