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).
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.

if they need to agree to the nomination what is stopping them from applying with the current method?
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.

ate 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.
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.
