Could all interested parties make themselves known on this thread?
Adjudicator of the Celeb Spotting thread is one of the most prestigous roles on TFK and it does none of us any favours to have a prolonged vacancy before filling this position.
I know certain posters have made their intentions to run known on another thread but I propose that via this thread:
i) Forum members must formally put themselves forward for the role; and / or
ii) Forum members can be nominated by one or more of their peers;
iii) A poster nominated by a third party must acknowledge the nomination on this thread;
iv) A poster may make 1 self nomination and / or 1 third party nomination.
Please note that:
i) If a nominated forum member formally declares that they do not wish to run via a post made on this very thread then they will not be considered in the poll to decide the vacancy;
ii) Nominations will remain open until 9pm on Wednesday night, 4th January;
iii) Some time after that, but no later than 10.15am on Thursday, 5th January, a poll will be created by me to decide the new AOTCST.
iv) The poll will remain open until 4pm on Friday, 6th January. At that stage the person with the most votes will be declared the victor and will be appointed AOTCST.
v) A 1-hour blitz tie-break poll will be carried out in the event of a draw.
It might also be helpful if candidates provided an overview of their celeb spotting policies, aims, memories, fears etc on this thread.
Bandage, I note Fagan’s official exclusion from the race by virtue of Balbec’s withdrawal of the nomination but am I right in saying you must withdraw from the running on this thread if officially nominated by someone else?
Rocko, a poster may withdraw a nomination up to the 9pm deadline and/or a poster who is nominated may declare that they do not wish to run. Either course of action is an acceptable way of ensuring that poster will not be in the poll.
