It is with regret that I announce after much discussion, FAF Leadership has unanimously decided to remove both Francias and Suzuji's applications to apply for Player Councilor.
FAF Councilor elections - like the grand majority of democratic processes - Do have eligibility requirements. It is expected that applicants do have a mostly clean moderation history. Users who are permanently banned, or have been banned repeatedly for serious offences, do not meet these requirements.
It is indeed our mistake to have not posted any requirements in the original thread, and I will apologise on behalf of the council for that. I will push for both the Council and the FAF Association to outline these requirements so that this situation does not happen again in the future.
I also apologise about the desicion to review the canidates AFTER the discussion period. The review should be done beforehand as to not needlessly waste anyone's time or sow confusion.
For the sake of transparency, and to avoid any Conflicts of Interest, I need to make it known that:
- FtXCommando was not able to see any discussion regarding this decision.
- FtXCommando was not able to partake in any discussion regarding this decision.
- FtXCommando was not allowed to vote in any matter regarding this decision.
I would also ask that discussion around the removal not be included in this thread. If you need further information. I would suggest going over to zulip - or asking Giebmasse or myself.
Following this decision, we've decided to prolong the discussion period for an extra week to accommodate further debate.
The new timeline is as follows:
30th of May: Signups close.
6th of June: Voting Period begins.
If you're wanting to apply, you can still do so until the 30th.
Make sure to post your application here.
Any applications posted outside of this thread are not to be considered as legitimate.
You also need to commit yourself to a councilors pledge.
If you're not able to think of one; one has been created for you. Make sure it's in-line with the councilor responsibilities from the FAF wiki. They're also posted here:
