If it's not too late, please post the names of the candidates in the poll itself to avoid confusion. If the editing time has passed on the poll, please ask the mods if they can do that for us.

TIA

I can't in good conscious vote for Paleocon, so I'll vote for my friend who I actually have pleasant conversations with; Sangha.

I'm going to use the poll to cast my vote.

Who's going to moderate the Constitutional Convention, you know keeping everyone in line ?
We still need a Sergeant at Arms.

Good point.

We need at least one Mod to take that role since they have the power to enforce the rules. Which brings up another point - we need rules, specific to this that are in addition to the normal forum rules.

We should have a thread to suggest rules for the debate that are in addition to the existing forum rules, if others feel they are potentially required.

I concur.

When the Convention officially conviens the first order of business should be to either appoint or elect a Sergeant of Arms. The Sergeant of Arms must have the power of a DP moderator. Than means someone from the DP Mod Squad or a Brevet Mod (temporary mod) who has the power of a DP mod. I don't think a brevet mod would pass the DP staff. You never know.

Right now from just taking a quick look at the list of the convention delegates, Your Star is the only one who can carry out the duties of Sergeant at Arms.

There's also kal'stang, RedAkston, and American, but that's still a rather short list of options. I suggest we elect a temporary moderator who will only have authority in threads relevant to the DP constitution. Just my suggestions for people (preexisting moderators preincluded) to do the job, based on what I've seen out of them on DP so far and who aren't already elected for something:

roguenuke
TheDemSocialist
Telekat
Gaius 46
Superfly
NIMBY
joG

Just a few people I think would put partisanship aside for this. My apologies if I overlooked anyone.

I must have over looked kal'stang and RedAkston on convention members list.

Nimby, that interesting, personally I like Nimby as a person.

As for roguenuke, considering what her job is in the real world, she could drop over dead any minute from nuclear exposure and not be able to fulfill her term in the position. :lol:

Anyways, any people you would suggest adding to the list? Anybody you think I made a bad call on by including them?

With his permission, I'm posting a PM Jango sent me regarding his vote, which will be accepted since he is unable to vote in the poll:

At this time I have no one to add to the list.

Need to know what real authority the Sergeant at Arms will have.

I assume they will perform all the same duties of a moderator, but without any additional concerns or responsibilities in other sections of the forum to distract them.
