Admin Elections! :D
 
Each server should have a manager election every year, a player can only be re-elected twice.

Thoughts?

terrible idea

Pretty much one of the most stupid and reckless things that could ever be done to a Classic server.

Yearly impeachment elections would be more useful

In a way it is but than again the votes may be legit.
The only way to participate in the elections is if you are already a Developer/PR on the server; and, how to get people to LIKE you? Obvious, if you work on the server a lot, and keep working towards the server, you'll gain a positive reputation.
Well yeah, you'll for sure get votes from your friends but that how every election is.

You will obviously disagree because you're trying to hog Zodiac for as long as you can. You're not even doing anything other than nerfing/buffing classes. Other than that, you're AFK while your whole staff team is actually working.

It would be totally counter-productive. Every manager tries to make a server their own, so servers would get broken and messed about with yearly. Plus I agree with the "popularity contest" sentiment. It just seems stupid.

Agreed.

Than how do countries work? Doesn't every president/priminister want to run the country there own way into a different direction?

Countries are not small communities of 30, presidents aren't nationally known on a personal level

I dunno. Valikorlia elected its current manager.

WaDaFack 04-11-2010 01:07 AM

Uhm, wouldn't it be easier to work on a community of 30 than one with millions of people?
Usually, someone running for president would usually have there whole hometown to vote for him/her.

do you know how politics work? You dont vote for someone on how well you like them personally, you vote for them on there ideas. That is how the President is elected, I doubt there hometown ever ALL votes for them, I mean, Obama's hometown cant vote..

This is a terrible idea, We've seen Managers picked because of popularity and it fails..

Well, under Omake we've had more development than I've ever seen in all the time I've played Valikorlia. He's definitely better than Clash and the slew of managers that filled up the few-month space between. The election was between two pretty well-liked, competent, long-time players.
