The election for the coming term af council is concluded.
We welcome our new Council. Es-bih, Lao Tse and Captain Vancouver.

A huge thank you to Panther and Constantine XI in previous council for their effort and services for our community.
The new Council will decide who will chair this edition which is a bit longer than usual. Congrats guys!

Congrats to new Council Members.  Clap
 
PS. When were the elections held, and who votes on council positions?

The council is elected (or agreed upon) between and by the moderators including votes from the admins. 
This process just took place, but can prove difficult with very few moderators (as it did this time), so in near future we will announce a new setup for both groups, the Council and the Moderator Group.
This setup is pretty much in place as well.

Yes, thanks everyone for your confidence. Your captain is currently anchored in a foreign port, and on tropical routine, so I may have missed some of the latest nuances in administrative procedures. I'll catch up.

You may count on your captain to do his duty. While under the influence of a tropical sun and large size margaritas, you may not, however, be so sure of haste.

My time here has been limited, but this time I definitely plan to increase it. 
 
Newer and active members, such as toyo, do you have any advice, and input to grow, and re-energize our community.

Thanks!
 
Thanks EsBih for the invitation to comment.
 
I've tried to invigorate the forum with new posts, some controversial others not, but it seems to me that many members of long standing have simply dropped out. It would be of benefit if The Board, Admin and Mods were to know the reasons for the lack of input, and to this end, perhaps either PM's to members who have dropped out, or a poll could assist.
 
I'll give ther matter some more thought and PM any ideas to Admin.
 
Once again, thanks for an interesting, well managed forum, although I get the ocassional boot in the bum.Wink
