I don't know about you guys, but it seems as though the majority of the candidates are a bit too inexperienced.

What do you think?

Inexperienced? These elections are designed in favor of the incumbents,....this is an obscure position, yet the powers and qualifications are not made public or clearly outlined anywhere. The only criteria going is a member's diplomatic ability and how he communicates with other users on the website. There really isn't much of an opportunity to gain experience, and there isn't much of an opportunity to make the elections something even moderately competitive. As it stands, Innomen and maybe 1 or 2 others are the only serious candidates.

this might be true, but i still think that other than innomen, the president should be someone who has been here for quite sometime. This way, the president fully understand the problem as well as issues associated with the site.
