PickleEU or NA?:
NAAre you aware that the position of Community Representative is one of trust and confidence, and do you understand you can be punished for breaking that trust? :
YesWhy should you become CR? :
I believe I should be the NA Community Representative because I truly want to help make everyone's experiences more fun and in general, just better. I have a decent amount of administrative experience starting back in 2013 helping admin a linebattle to present day where I am a Moderator of both NA groupfighting servers and heading NA RGL. In the past I have been Moderator of NA NWL, Referee of various leagues and tournaments, and Admin of several servers. I have been with this community since 2012(and on FSE since 2013) so I think I have a pretty good concept of how it works and how to improve it.
Listed below are a few of my goals. In addition to those goals I have created a list of interesting competitive and casual event ideas that I will release if I am elected.My Goals:
- Create fun, experimental, and interesting events for both Competitive and Casual groups alike.
- Be as transparent as possible with the community.
- Respect community opinions and ideas.
- Create a schedule for CR hosted events and tournaments that span the term.
- Continue and revive popular events such as NANWL and the Regional Groupfighting Tournament.
- Have recurring discussions with regimental representatives and community memebers to hear your concerns/suggestions.
If elected I would like to work with the other candidates so their views, goals, and voters are represented to the fullest extent.
I asked a few Community Members if I would be a good CR and why, here are their testimonials.
As one of my oldest NW friends, I have seen Pickle put on a myriad of hats. I've seen him be a ranker, NCO, CO, and most prominently, one of the head admins of the NA Groupfighting server. He has excelled at all these roles and took his responsibilities seriously, while always keeping in context that at the end of the day NW is a game we play to have fun. Pickle's most prominent quality is that he approaches each situation with a level head, and that is a valuable quality for a person in any position, to ensure a fair, just, and most importantly, a fun environment. He is also one of the gayest men to ever touch this game, which is another huge achievement I must commend him for.
First I would like to include the following: I agree for Pickle to post this on the forums. Now on to my statement: I haven't been in the NW community for a long time compared to some people, and that difference pales when compared to a person like pickle. Pickle has been a staunch, reliable, and trustworthy member of this community for years. While I canot vouch for his years prior to when I joined this game, I do know from my experience with him - as an NA GF admin, a forum member, a friend, and eventually a loyal member of the 15e that this fella would make an excellent CR. He has the connections needed for this position across the community, the reputation to back it, and the experience necessary for it. Therefore, I can endorse pickle's run for CR without a single regret, and fully hope he wins the elections.
While many community members claim to be impartial third parties, they do this because they are either A) lying or B) too inactive to matter. Pickle, however, is one of the few community members who can realistically claim to be an impartial, objective third party. The community has already recognized this, handing Pickle important positions in leagues, tournaments, and servers. A true testament to this is that Pickle is the only person to have been a NA Groupfighting and BoB Groupfighting moderator. This type of true impartiality and competence in the CR position hasn't been seen since Mack, and right now there is no one more qualified and suited to the position than Pickle.
