Would you be open to advising airmax to give me access to the poll admin so I can remove polls manually and assist poll maker's needs if they make a mistake, when you become president that is?

I would like to see you be able to do that, but I should never use my influence to sway Airmax towards my opinion... I should only ever represent the opinion of the site's members. If they want you to have that power, I'd represent their concern to Airmax, but if they don't agree, than that's the side I must represent to Airmax. The President's influence should be used to represent the members, not himself.

How good would it be if you could attach notes on people that only you can read ? , like a square or a circle, pops up next to their picture, and you click on it and read what you wrote about them, and add more .
This would not be something you could do hey ?
Have you DK and TUF got a slight chance of being able to talk to juggle or whatever their name is. ?

Of course we do... See, I live within an hour of them. Visiting them would be easy. It's not a closed off place. You can just walk in... It's convincing the desk to set an appointment thats going to take time. But it's ultimately possible. Work case scenerio, you have to call first, which is also possible. The fact that I am capable of visiting them makes it incredibly possible.

Ultimately, Juggle is a side interest. While we aim to comtact them, we also aim to create a new Presidency, unique from any other roles.

It's simple... Because most of our plans aren't to introduce many new programs. Most of the programs we have are already made, we're just continueing them. The only programs we are introducing are training programs, built to train new people on how to do/host their own activities. This instead boosts the quantity and quality of each activity.

We have some jobs we are intoducing into the role, like FB manager, liaison with other sites, ect... But those don't relate to activities, with the exception of promoting them on FB. The presidency, as it is, intrudes on member activities by imposing restrictions on them to better control their outcome. We would pretty much do none of that. Me and TUF have both been here enough to know that rules and restrictions aren't needed to make activites and events work.

If i have permission to record it, than sure.

I'll call them day 1. Try meeting them the soonest i can. Definitely try for the first week. But of course, Juggle is a sub-goal of our platfor.

The presidency has, so far, caused 10 or so threads in the last 2 months...

Remember when we were fighting for Voting Reform? That issue caused 8 or so threads in 3 days... Now imagine that it kept going, and was finally forgotten, until July 1st. Then at July 1st, the issue was finally voted on... causing another 8+ threads in a few days. That's what the Conventions would offer. Major issues wouldn't get addressed for months until the Conventions took place. And then you have 5-8 issues getting voted on... Each producing far more drama and threads per day than the presidency. Most wouldn't get the attention they deserved, and people would fight over the specific wording of one... it'd be insanely crazy.

Then imagine... if someone tells you the candidate you believe in sucks, you get a little mad. But when it's an idea you believe in, you get alot angrier. Especially since the idea you believe in is make/break for the site. The Presidency is not. So agruments will get more personal, and you'd have more drama. That's why policy reform always gets more drama per day then the presidency. Imagine all of that, for 5+ policies at once. It'd be like 5-10 Mikal v Bladerunner elections at once.

Also, the Conventions need someone to manage them... read every thread, and work with members to perfectly define every option.. and Airmax can't be expected to do all of that. Or to want to.

My EA concept helps address issues in real time. Instead of putting them in a corner for as long as six months. The Presidency also offers manpower to use for getting programs and tasks done. The Conventions do not. The conventions don't offer a liaison with mods, other sites, a FB manager, or a Beginner's Tourney host, or a New Member Mentorship host... ect.. Unless, of course, you want to host an election during the Conventions.

Why did you choose TUF as your VP?

He has a great deal of experience with the Presidency, being considered by many to be the greatest non-Airmax president ever. He also learned how to benefit the site and run a Presidency without Juggle, making him an asset to what our Presidency aims to be... A new, reformed Presidency that isn't focused on Juggle (of course, as stated, we wouldn't not try reaching out to them).

He also understands the site. He knows the many elements that make the site it is...

He also has a calm persona. He doesn't go off on members, or ignores them. He listens to them, and tries to understand their side. This makes him a far better candidate for a Liaison with Mods than harder, who possesses none of those skills.
