Congrats -Gooch-

Alot of people are confused about votes etc...

Xiivi did RedCircle give the vote results? If so everyone who replyed to my e-mails than these were your votes. They were just a little while ago.

Ok, I was too confused about the low amount of people who voted in this election. Basically, it went like this:

RC is far too busy to handle the election this month.
Tom takes care of the voting process.
Tom creates the e-mail, and sends it to everyone SEPARATELY.
Tom recieves the results and forwards the exact e-mails he gets to RC.
RC forwards those exact e-mails to me.
I count up the votes and get the results in.

Here's who voted:
Xiivi, BonusStage, Tom_s00, -TRA-, BonusStage, Denvish, and carmelhadinosaur

That's it, that's all I got, RC said he sent me everyone, and Tom said he sent RC everyone. I am not sure of who all Tom actually sent the e-mails too, because he did them all separatly. So Tom, please list the e-mails, not the people, but their e-mail addresses, that you sent the nominees to. Note, this month is going to stay set in stone. There won't be a recount if we find that Tom messed up something, due to the fact we're just too far along this month and will be ready for a new election soon. RC said he's leaving this list's maintainence up to me for the following months, and if he ever wants to take control again he may as he wishes, but for now I'll be taking charge for this list. Trying to have someone get the votes, then sending them to another person, then another person is just too much of room for error. With one person maintaining it all it will be much easier and the next month's election will run hopefully a lot more smooth and on time.

I've been keeping track of the potentials this past month even though I may not actually post a lot, I still read most everything. I'll be really cracking down on who gets put on the nominees list due to Tom's just being far too long. Only people who really stand out and are helpful will be added. The potentials list will be sent to these following e-mails on the 20th:

ramagi[@]newgrounds.com
denvish[@]gmail.com
whereisvince[@]yahoo.com
blizzardforever13[@]hotmail.com
hops311[@]hotmail.com
tankydude[@]hotmail.com
kristof88[@]gmail.com
emailk13[@]hotmail.com
marcus_jwm[@]hotmail.com
MVegeta777[@]hotmail.com
Andy1Miller[@]gmail.com
tomscott1[@]gmail.com
BahamutVII[@]gmail.com
eldarion1000[@]gmail.com
Myst_Sparknode[@]hotmail.com
rotatingarmchair[@]gmail.com

Why the 20th? People have vactions and I'm aware so I'm giving you all time to vote. If you don't agree with an e-mail shown above then post now.

Everyone will actually recieve 2 identical e-mails, one from backtonormal[@]gmail.com and one from xiivi[@]aim.com. Why 2? That way you'll have a good chance of seeing it. It will be titled: Wi/Ht Elections. If I don't have a response by the 30th, then you will recieve another 2 e-mails.

The results and update will be posted on the 1st, unless I post otherwise. :)

Well, hopefully that fixes whatever happened. Because I know for a fact I just didnt get it. At my work, I check my email every 10-15 mins and read everything that comes through. It was just never there.

Congratulations Gooch.
This is, by god, the most organized and dedicated member system every concieved on this forum. I had become an active poster here many months ago, yet I lost interest once I starting lacking ideas to contribute.

There are a few special people I'm yearning to see bequeathed the wi/ht membership torch. :) Wimsty has been obviously dedicating alot of time here. Likewise, Zendra and DonDoli are both admirable and worthy users, to me.

Expect to see me helping out the bewildered newbies, and throwing congrats around the lounge for a while. I've been at this void between cchood, and wi/hthood; the essence of true adolescence in bbs form. =P

E-mails have been sent and the voting process has begun. Check your in-boxes. Even if you don't plan on voting at least respond to the e-mail and tell me that you don't plan on voting. ;)

I ended up getting two emails, as well. I'm just guessing to respond to either one of them.

Holy crap. I didn't even realize that I was the new member of the team. I'm overly surprised to see that. All I can say on the behalf of this nomination is that it's a great honor, and I'd like to thank everybody who ended up voting for me. I truly appreciate everyone's votes. And thanks to everybody on the congratulations. I'm going to make the most of this.

Congratulations to Gooch - this months newest Regular.

I think this place has changed so much in the past three to four months. But still good to see this part of Wi/Ht? continuing to run.

Well done to him and all other potentials. Better luck to them next time.

I wouldn't have forgotten him if I didn't think Mazza was already a wi/ht member. :o
Guess I thought wrong.

Well then, best of luck to him aswell for next month.

Yeah. Without the lists, D0GMA &co to keep me amused in here, I'm sorry to say I no longer count myself as a Wi/Ht regular. I spend a reasonable amount of time in the Flash forum, but I guess the new baby and other RL obligations are severely limiting my NG time.

Good to see that the legacy continues, though. I just wish the lists were still running.

I think you speak for alot of people when you say that (apart from the baby stuff and the flash forum) this place is falling apart it's just not what it used to be anymore.

Amen to that.

Recap for everyone and voting update:

No, tom, you weren't first, myst beat you by 3 minutes, and don't waste a post in here asking if you were able to vote first, that's something to ask in your e-mail, not something to post on the BBS. D:

Concerning the 2 e-mails, in my earlier post I stated that I would send 2 e-mails in order to try and make sure spam filters didn't mess everything up, you can reply to either. :)

RC, I never suspected that someone who was just elected as a regular to not stop by this topic and see they were voted in. Yes, I could send an e-mail to the next voted regular, but if they truely are a regular then they are expected to notice on their own. >.>

SCD, you're still on the Wi/Ht regulars list, thus you can still vote. Denvish and ramagi are mods, and they still participate, thus you can as well. ;)

Also, please limit discussion of the Wi/Ht Memberlist to its thread. I've seen some posts in here that should have been posted in it and some posts in it that should have been posted here. It creates confusion, so yeah, post in the right topic people. ;)

For the voting update, I've recieved votes/responses from the following:

Myst_Williams
Tom_s00
BonusStage
carmelhadinosaur
Denvish
-Gooch-
Bahamut7
ramagi
-Mazza-

In that order, and I voted before everyone so my votes wouldn't be swayed by others' votes. So that means 10 of the 17 regulars have voted/responded. I'm still waiting for a vote or response from the following:

YoinK_VineS
EKRegulus
M-A-R-C-U-S
Master_Inuyasha
Slightly_Crazy_Dude
Eldarion
-TRA-

Please, at least respond to the e-mail telling me that you aren't voting, it'll make everything much easier. ;)

We're halfway through getting everyone to vote/respond and still have more than half the time left in the voting process, so I guess we're on a good pace. :)

I envy your voting population. It makes the Wi/Ht? membership look asleep by comparison.

....

10 of 17? Egad, man. > 50 % voting. Envy envy envy...

We're at 6 of 23 right now, and if we end with 10-12 of 23, we'll have "high turnout."

Please, at least respond to the e-mail telling me that you aren't voting, it'll make everything much easier. ;)

pfft. Good luck with that. #;-}>

I had a question for you or RC or Tom, BTW:

Why are all three of you doing super-e-mail-tag to get the voting done?

If RC's too busy to send out the e-mails himself (and why do they have to be individually sent, anyway? I just send a mail to all the Wi/Ht? members at once and they e-mail me (not the whole list) back with "reply to sender only" and all is well)...

anyway, if he's too busy, then why don't you or Tom send them out however you want to, but with your "REPLY TO" e-mail addy in your mail program settings set to either HIS address or whoever is doing the vote counting.

That way, when people reply to the mail they'll send the mail directly to the person it needs to get to without having to do any extra work or addy-changing or anything...

and this process you mentioned earlier on the page wouldn't even be necessary:

I count up the votes and get the results in.

Here's how mine would work:

1) RC is far too busy to handle the election this month.
2) Tom sets his reply-to address to RC's or Xiivi's addy, whichever the mails need to go to
3) Tom takes care of the voting process by sending the e-mail to everyone at once (or to everyone separately if he really insists on it).
4) When people vote, the mails get sent directly to whoever they need to get to, and the whole "Tom forwards to RC, RC forwards to Xiivi" chain is rendered unnecessary.

I really don't get what Tom doesn't just forward them directly to you already if RC is too busy. Is RC afraid that if he wasn't part of the loop that you two would rig the election or something? #;-}>

Haha, trust me, everyone didn't "vote". Note how I always said "voted/responded" that /responded was there because there are some who just responded saying they weren't active enough to vote. ;)

10 of 17? Egad, man. > 50 % voting. Envy envy envy...

As I just said, not voting, responding. :D My goal is to get a response out of everyone. And I will keep annoying them until they acknowledge they are a Regular. XD

We're at 6 of 23 right now, and if we end with 10-12 of 23, we'll have "high turnout."

Well, considering how many retired and inactives you have it's only natural that'd be a high turnout. This list....trys...to keep it current by having the out vote, but yeah....no one uses it. >_> I mean...last month there were 3 out votes and 2 of those votes were people voting themselves out. >.>

pfft. Good luck with that. #;-}>

My goal is to get everyone to talk. D:<

RC & Tom stuff

No, no. That was JUST for that month. Basically, for the July elections RC left control of the voting to Tom. So Tom took the votes, and then sent them to RC who was supposed to do the update. Well, low and behold, halfway through the month RC still hasn't gotten around to it. So basically, I told RC to just forward me all the votes he got from Tom and I'd take over the update, which I did. Well, I saw there were such a low number of voters. And then I saw complaints that some didn't get the voting e-mail. So basically, I decided that Tom must have done something weird with the e-mails since people never got them, so I decided I'd be taking over that from then on. I talked to RC and he said it was fine if I took over control of this list, because he was just too preoccupied to ever update or anything. So now, this month, I'm doing everything, e-mails, update, etc. I knew that e-mail tag was crazy, it just needed to be used to get the list back up and running. Basically, I'm in charge from now on unless RC decides he wants to do it again, at which point I'll gladly hand over control, but that's only if he's actually going to get the e-mails and updates running on time. ;)

Oh, okay. Thanks for explaining and all. Glad it's not an ongoing "three people trying to keep track of the same e-mails and forwarding them to each other multiple times just to do a job that one person could do quite simply" situation but just a one time thing. #;-}>

Just to let everyone know, Xiivi (Amir / Inuzuka-Kiba / etc...) has made a new topic and since he is taking over the Wi/Ht Regulars List, all discussion shall be forwarded to that topic.

This particular topic's purpose (Members Vs. Mods) has long since been retired as a list and will be locked because of it. This topic shall be used as a historical reference, but if any inquiries need be answered, then please forward those questions to the new topic.

Direct your posts to ----> Wi/Ht Regulars List (RCVL)
