PostSubject: The 3rd CPC Elections   Mon May 07, 2012 3:20 pm

Voting is over, congratulations to Hika for stepping into Fobia's shoes.



It's that time again, a time for democracy and freedom and togetherness and popularity contests. Anyone that wants to be a candidate must step forward by Wednesday when the voting will begin. Hop to it! Make Melsonia a grander place, if that's even possible.


EDIT:

As Wednesday draws near I thought it would we useful to present an edited version of our Guide to Being Glorious Leader so those of you stepping up know what's expected of you.

Quote :
You have to be clear on what being a leader of an organization means. And your village has to be treated as exactly that if it is if its going to have any chance of functioning well: a real organization, even if it is organized for real people to engage in fantasy activities.

Being a leader on any large scale means that most of your online time will now be spent coordinating what other people are doing, talking with people in and out of your organization, and keeping and eye on things in general. If you just want to spend time playing your character, if analysing the big picture, moving pieces around a board, and spending time in secret meetings doesn't make your heart beat faster then you probably won't enjoy being, or be a very effective, leader.

Be real about what being in charge means: A lot of work. The bigger the village, the more work it will be. If you are not ready to spend most or all of your time coordinating, analysing, moving other players on the board, PMing, and in meetings, you should not consider leadership of any kind in any organization over, say, 10 players.

As leader of the pack you are the designated daddy figure. Goes with the turf.

You are also the entertainment director. This is a game. These people are here to be entertained. You lose sight of this at your own risk.

You will be the administer of discipline and justice, whatever need there is for these things in your group,.

You will be the diplomat in chief.

You will be the guy with the plan.

Being the leader of a village is almost always thankless. You now have other players depending on you. That's real. The fantasy part is that we are Hearthlings. Be clear on that and you have the potential to be an excellent leader who people remember long after they no longer play this MMO. Confuse yourself about that and you'll be forgotten right after the Russians have finished tea-bagging your corpse.

EDIT#2:
The vote is on! Same as last time, you get to nominate the top 4 people you want in the CPC (in order of preference) and to name one person you absolutely DON'T want in. All votes are optional, but if you abstain from one or all parts of the vote please do tell me. Submit these via PM to me over the forum or Skype and we'll get the results in once everyone has voted or a week passes, whichever is fastest.

For fear of Gunther as ruler I'll volunteer as tribute in place of him.

My platform is wide.
