Huh?

I definitely nominated Lindax for TD when I was one. There has never been a public vote for TeamCC positions.

You may be referring to the TO user group, which is hardly related to the Team. Not to say that the position isn't prestigious, just...no one ever posts there.

Yeah, homework Viper. I was a TD long before I was chosen to lead the TO usergroup. Which, incidentally, was after I resigned as a TD.

The rest of your answers in your latest post merely show that you either didn't read my comments properly or you simply don't have anything constructive to say.

Sometimes one is better off by not responding.

I read and responded to all of your comments and even thoroughly broke them down. It's cheap for you to say otherwise. If there's a specific point that you think is paramount that I somehow did not regard then go ahead and note it. And you were in a vote with other people that had not been TD's. And everything I said was in a constructive manner. You're just taking (more) cheap shots to be saying otherwise, which is plenty sad. No surprise, given you started your message on an ignorant, condescending note.

No. There was a TD position that has been put up for vote multiple times. LX won that vote once or twice. Darin44 won it thereafter. And that's a good thing. The community got to choose whomever they wanted to work with and/or whomever's vision they supported. There is no need for a handful of people to have so much power irrespective of the entire clan community.

I could have taken plenty of cheap shots, but I didn't and didn't need to.

Sorry, Viper, you are wrong...how can you win a vote to be TD twice?

You are still talking about leading the TO group, which does not come with a gold name.

In fact, one specific requirement for this position is that you CANNOT be a TD.

That's all you did was take cheap shots. You were in a freaking vote with people who had not been TDs and you know that. And you knew that when you were saying that it never worked like that anywhere else on CC. Also, you were being cheap when you said I hadn't regarded your points or being constructive. I most certainly was constructive and did fully regard your points in good faith. So, if you have something 'constructive' to add then go ahead.

You really have no clue, do you. You are talking about running the TO usergroup. I did that for one term (6 months) then Darin took over. I decided not to put myself up for election for a second term. Again, that was after I resigned as a TD. As a matter of fact TDs aren't even allowed to run that usergroup.

You want a cheap shot? This is all public information, relatively simple to understand for most people. What are you on to make you so thick?

I knew it was a vote for TD or something related (But fine; TO group leader). The specifics aren't especially consequential. Either way, another community on CC got to choose who represented them and that was my point. And yes, you've taken cheap shots. I regarded your post fully and you still haven't bothered to say how I didn't do so. And it's cheap for you to say I'm not being constructive. I've regarded improving the system. Just because you don't agree doesn't make it not constructive.

Allowing ordinary members to vote CDs just leaves room for clan bias.

There's 'bias' in any option. And I'd have clan leaders vote in the CDF. A voting system creates an accountability that is not existent now.

Ok Viper. Not trying to be an ass. Please explain how that creates accountability (and to whom) and why that is important (and to whom).

Also, why do you say there is no accountability now?

What about a half/half decision?

Members can nominate someone who they think will be good in the role, and maybe the three people with the most nominations can be selected for review. Of course, those voted, must accept the nomination to indicate that they actually would be interesting and willing to take on the responsibilities and duties of the position. Then the current cd team interviews and ends up selecting one of those three.

what if they are not suitable?

Are you unfamiliar with the concept that elections create an inherent accountability? And accountability is hugely important for many reasons. A process that fully respects and embraces all clans equally will help to save hours of conflicts in the future. Perhaps, you are unfamiliar with some of the more recent issues; but many people were left with a sense that there is an us and them reality in the clan world.

Maybe, many of us are hesitant to discuss it, but a rogue CD(s) can do a lot of damage. And we need a process in which we as clans can collectively choose the most desirable CDs. And I say that with all due respect to those who are serving as CDs now.

What if a CD applicant is not suitable under the current method of selection? The selection process will never stamp out that concern. However, if you have regular elections, clans will tend to find optimal CD's imo.

Members can nomin


Then you still have a situation in which CDs are controlling who is in power to a significant degree. I believe that the clan leaders are a very informed group and are capable of choosing the best or otherwise worthy people.

i only asked because the proposal was 1 IS selected of the 3 highest voted, whereas none of them might suitable due to many reasons such as existing conflicts with other CDs or management.

Ah. Well if management is admin, then I think they shall have the final say on CDs no matter what the process.

As for current CDs not thinking he/she can work with an elected CD__ Well let me first say that that would hopefully not be a common issue. Regardless, if a CD does not feel like he can work with a certain elected person than he/she should resign. I think it's as simple as that.

What if a CD is not suitable under the current method of selection? The selection process will never stamp out that concern. However, if you have regular elections, clans will tend to find optimal CD's imo.

so voting for someone who has a problem with the current CD's would allow you to overthrow the regime. i really can't see admin putting in place a system that would allow that.

From this discussion,i came to conclusion that Old CD search for new CD who will be suitable for them, not for clan community?

what are actual role of new CD are?

>>Additionally, candidates should have a cool-head and calm demeanor, and be eager to help take the Clans Dept. to the next level.<<
huh, this its so interesting requirements, i wonder why its this important ?

>>For example, We also need individuals who can provide a different perspective,so even being relatively inexperienced in the clan arena could be an asset if you're interested in helping new Clans prosper.<<

Well still not clear what are new CD can do, and how much he will have free hands to make some new changes?

There's 'bias' in any option. And I'd have clan leaders vote in the CDF. A voting system creates an accountability that is not existent now.


Ok Viper. Not trying to be an ass. Please explain how that creates accountability (and to whom) and why that is important (and to whom).

Lx


Are you unfamiliar with the concept that elections create an inherent accountability? And accountability is hugely important for many reasons. A process that fully respects and embraces all clans equally will help to save hours of conflicts in the future. Perhaps, you are unfamiliar with some of the more recent issues; but many people were left with a sense that there is an us and them reality in the clan world.

If you mean with accountability that somebody runs the risk of not being elected, yeah. I don't call that accountability though. An elected CD would still be accountable to the team leader and admin.

As for the rest: You're talking perfect world. In the real world (or clan world) I don't see electing CDs will help save hours of conflict, nor change the "us and them reality".

An elected CD can still do a lot of damage. And whomever gets elected will only be the choice of a majority, which means there will still be plenty of clan members and leaders who don't agree with the choice.

Besides, why would you want the most desirable person? Shouldn't it be the most capable person? Elections will likely result in the most likable person being chosen, not the most capable.

People don't volunteer for a CD position because they like to see their name in blue (or whatever that horrible color is). They do it because they think they can make the clan world a better place. And even the best CD will never make everybody happy, unless we go back to your perfect world.

Take us, for example. You may be a perfect clan leader (who knows), nevertheless I disagree with practically everything you post. Luckily we both have the option of expressing our opinions.

Overthrow the regime? LOL. The clan world picks their leaders. If they want the same leaders then fine. If they want new leaders then great. The point is that the clan system is intricate and CDs have a lot of power and the clans need to have more control regarding the direction of it, instead of an elite group of people with indefinite stays of power.

Yes. An elected CD can do a lot of damage. And if the clan world sees it that way; then they'll vote someone new to reverse the damage. What happens when a current CD does a lot of damage? Nothing. THAT'S ACCOUNTABILITY VS. NOT ACCOUNTABILITY.

Lindax wrote:Besides, why would you want the most desirable person? Shouldn't it be the most capable person? Elections will likely result in the most likable person being chosen, not the most capable.


The most desireable person is the most capable person (or at least capable) in the eyes of the clan world. We have a very astute community. But again, if a CD goes off the rails, then there will be a system in place to get a new CD, rather than endlessly be stuck with a person who is doing damage.

Lindax wrote:People don't volunteer for a CD position because they like to see their name in blue (or whatever that horrible color is). They do it because they think they can make the clan world a better place.


Candidates' desires do not change because you have elections. Although, if they did; it would be for the best imo. Because it would not be about who is in with who. It would be about who gets along with everybody and is seen as a very innovative person by the whole community.

Lindax wrote:And even the best CD will never make everybody happy, unless we go back to your perfect world.


You're logic is fallacious and condescending. I've never said that an election makes everything perfect or that everyone will be happy. People may be disenchanted at times. But, at least they're going to have say in who is representing them. Right now, clans have no say in who is representing them. Some clan leaders may have great visions for the clan world. But, if they're not in the loop, then tough beans.

Lindax wrote:Take us, for example. You may be a perfect clan leader (who knows), nevertheless I disagree with practically everything you post. Luckily we both have the option of expressing our opinions.


The concept of being able to express opinions is an argument for not having elections? Actually, I can tell you that there are some clan leaders who have stopped or tempered their opinions because they are tired of howling at the wind. A vote at least gives them some direct real say.
