G'day, fellow RationalWikians! Don't forget to visit the Campaign page of the 2016 Board of trustees election in order to make your voice heard. Suggested activities include:

  • Endorsing select candidates (lending a hand to your loyal henchmen and/or glorious overlords!)
  • Anti-endorsing select candidates (character-assassinating your hated opponents!)
  • Providing moar goat (please wipe afterwards)
  • Just asking questions to the candidates

Your participation might help other users better direct their votes. More importantly, it'll show the world that we've yet to go full Citizendium in terms of election hype!

[edit] Things to avoid doing

  1. Dress your really powerful troops in bright white, clunky uniforms and send them out into a thickly forested area.[1]
  2. Hiring droids with an accidental sense of humor.[2]
  3. Putting the reactor in the same area as the hanger bay, and then leaving the door open.
  4. Making your high-tech, powerful vehicles have a high center of balance and then sending them out to fight in a rainforest.[3]
  5. Having a son. This is always a bad idea. Make sure you are not his father, or you will save him at the last moment and get killed.[4]
  6. Using weapons that have cool looking laser effects if the actual combat performance is poor. Because pleptomatics are more important then functionality, isn't it?
  7. Equipping your soldiers in full body armor that provide no protection, hinders movement and then not using chemical weapons.
  8. Show off your new super-secret superweapon.[5]
  9. Make a list on a public wiki detailing all your things to do and not to do.
