Mekkil the GraetEU or NA?:
EU, the one and onlyAre 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? :
I do and I shall take the full brunt of any potential punishment.Why should you become CR? :
I am Mekkil the Graet
, one of the longest serving members here on this forum. I am widely known, every member with the mildest interest in our community is familiar with my name and my many contributions to it.
I am of course familiar with the community myself and so I also know of the recent CRs and the failures their terms have been. Nothing concrete have come out of them. No major changes have occurred. The real issues within our community lie unaddressed while the average forumite is bought off with minor initiatives such as the community leagues.
This needs to change. I am here to make that change happen. And it'll happen fast.
I have lead a medium sized regiment. I have hosted dozens of linebattles. I was one of the first community representatives when the first experiment went on many years ago and I was elected CR previously this very year.I have experience.
I am the man with the experience, the motivation, the skills and the will to push through the reforms needed. The reforms of the forumites. 'What reforms are these?'
you ask. It is simple. All that these weak willed inexperienced kindergarten candidates have failed to do thus far. All that should have been done to improve these forums, but have remained undone. 'But Mekkil, you have been a CR yourself before. Why didn't you do this back then?'
I am very glad to be able to address this issue here, before some misguided individual bring it up at a time where I may not have time to respond to it. Changes were made during my latest candidacy, but not enough
. Especially the reform of the obsolete rules was something I was involved in. Change, but not enough. Reactionary elements in the top hierarchy prevented progress. I argued. I fought. But time was not on my side. Something I aim to change with this term, specifically with the help of one of my core points.
To be concrete, I aim to focus on three core areas as I did in my first term. The two first core areas I will continue to focus on, as not much have been done in my absence from office. Some of the reforms I managed to push through (even within the boundaries of my previous term) have even been rolled back in the minds of the people and moderators alike, due to the inactivity of certain forumites who've held more power than they could handle.
Have you noticed the tone in debates on this forum? Have you noticed the amount of content less posts filling our forum? Have you, too, noticed the amount of trolls and troublemakers on this forum? Never before in history has the forum been in such a state. This are desperate times. And desperate times call for desperate moves. Only few are willing to act, but luckily, we are part of the few. We are not going to shy away from certain actions. We alone will do anything necessary to drive the evil out of the forums! Unlike other candidates, we alone have the will and courage to stand with you, and enact decisions for the betterment of us all. We alone, have the strength to take the unpopular but necessary decisions for this forum. We alone can protect the 99%.

With us as Community Representative, regiments will prosper. We will introduce a whole bunch of new and super creative policies that will make regiments twice strong and twice as big (actual effects may vary). We will host official events and official leagues will be introduced. Those leagues will be under direct control of the FSE leadership, to make sure that no results are rigged and that no one cheats his way up to the top, ensuring a fair and monitored playground, free of foul elements.

And finally, my new point. After observing the recent election trends, the hostile bickering, the fruitless cross debating (or should one say flame war?) between contestants and the falling interest in our political system it is clear it needs a new direction. A direction I am willing and capable of providing.A Reformed CR System
Look around you forumites! What do you see? Do you see the forum you imagined would come with the new Community Representatives? Probably not. Most of you may even consider it a waste of time after seeing the gross inefficiency of these wanna-be administrators and community smiths sift in and out of office with nothing much to show for it. On top of reckless upstarts taking the position of CR time and time again, rampant nepotism and favoritism caused by regimental meddling and rigging of elections; you have falling participation in elections. It is clear the system isn't working as intended. The forum deserves something better. Something more efficient. Something that yields results.
The forum deserves a system and a leader with vision. A goal. When
I win this election, I will make it my oath sworn duty to improve our electorate system, so that it will be more responsive to change and the will of the community. This reformed system will be tested and tried as soon as possible, the results of it shall prove whether or not it is worthy. I know that it will and most of you do too. There is not much left in this empty husk of a democratic system with a minuscule of voters. With few candidates willing to bear the burden. All this is not to mention the state of the dead-end debates that take place, but goes nowhere and only serve to create confusion and defame their opponents.
Ladies and gentlemen; for many months the wheel of destiny and of the impulse of our calm determination moves toward the goal. In these last hours the rhythm has increased and nothing can stop it now. We have been patient with the CRs for months. It is enough now.A vote for Mekkil is a vote for: New Possibilities. Real Leadership.
