RationalWiki:2011 board of trustees election/Nominations
This is the page to nominate potential board members and for nominees to accept or reject their nomination. In order for a user to be nominated they must meet certain requirements:
- Must be 18 years of age or older
- Registered user for 1 year or longer on RationalWiki (Registered by January 10th, 2010)
- 250 edits or more
- At least 1 edit in the last 3 months
The nomination procedure is easy. Any user may nominate any number of users who meet the requirements, including themselves, by placing the user name in the nominee section. No second is required. Each nominee must accept the nomination or else they will not be eligible during the election.
Nominees may accept a nomination by adding their signature to it. Those who wish to decline nominations should strikeout the nomination with a brief note. Likewise, ineligible nominations should also be struckout.
Nominees should also "accept" their nominations to indicate their presence and awareness of this grand scheme.
The Board meets at least once per quarter, usually for about 60-90 minutes. The time demands are small, consisting mostly of the matter of approving the next quarter's budget and fundraiser. Really, it's boring. If you have a taste for Robert's Rules of Order and like taking notes, this is the perfect role for you.
To nominate link the user name:
To accept the nomination, indicate acceptance and then sign next to your user name:

Nominees are encouraged to read the guide for board of trustees election before accepting or rejecting a nomination.

Ace McWicked...It would be an honour but I have a very busy next few months and wouldn't want to accept and not be able to do the job. That said though, I would more than happy next time around. As to Nuttys comment below, I don't know to what you are warning me of. Aceword up 02:50, 12 December 2010 (UTC) BlueIt would be an honor, but I don't think I'll be able to devote the time that this position ought to have in the coming year. Blue Talk 23:20, 10 December 2010 (UTC) KelsI honestly don't believe I'm qualified, aside from the fact I'll have very little time to devote over the next several months. --Kels (talk) 04:37, 11 December 2010 (UTC) JeevesMkII- Not especially interested in being on the board. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 09:08, 11 December 2010 (UTC) Radioactive afikomenSame reason as Blue. Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 05:42, 11 December 2010 (UTC) Nutty Rouxreject - the nature of the personal threats made against me by a certain element of our opposition bent on destroying this site leaves me hesitant to disclose my real name on the annual report for the corporation, which is required of being a board member (Ace - read this). User:Nutty Roux/sigtalk 19:05, 11 December 2010 (UTC) PsygremlinRespectfully decline. Mostly due to work commitments in the new year, partly to incompetence on my part and partly for the same reasons Nutty listed. TotnesmartinNice to be asked, even though I've left; however, I'm not willing to have my RL name on the innertubes. Totnesmartin (talk) 13:44, 12 December 2010 (UTC) David GerardI am brilliant, competent, flattered and use my real name. I'm also way busy with intermittent pounding bat sodomy from real life. And we have competent nominees already. I'll stick my head out if there's no-one else - David Gerard (talk) 11:47, 13 December 2010 (UTC) P-FosterJust back from a long wiki-break, and still have a lot on my plate. Perhaps next time. SusanG(won't be around?) Nx Phantom HooverI don't meet the age requirement, for one thing. Weaseloid- Declined due to indecision & commitment issues. Would probably be willing to step into the breach if needed. I'm not sure if I'm being vague enough here. WëäŝëïöïďMethinks it is a Weasel 21:17, 7 January 2011 (UTC) ConcernedresidentThanks, but my work now makes it difficult to be as consistent as I'd like. If need be I can do this, but I think there are more reliable and consistent people around. SidFlattered, but no. I'm not even around enough to keep track of WIGO:CP, and this year will be a busy one, too. --Sid (talk) 00:24, 9 January 2011 (UTC) LArronDitto, thanks Vandal (???) for the nomination, but though it it a worthwhile task, I won't have time for it over the next couple of months. larronsicut fur in nocte 20:26, 9 January 2011 (UTC) ΠWhilst I would like to, I won't have the time over the next year to be able to over the next year. - π 21:10, 9 January 2011 (UTC) Genghis KhantI would like to accept the nomination but don't feel that I can currently commit to the requisite time in the coming year. However, I have confidence in the abilities of the present members and current candidates and feel that they will be able to do a good job. Генгисmarauding 23:11, 9 January 2011 (UTC)
