giving the community an either-or choice between two preselected candidates doesn't sound very open and allowing of creative involvement. telling me everyone involved in map creation, mapping, regulation, and development views the current system as subpar then holding a closed election. to be honest, this sounds like an internal dispute that cant be resolved and the community is now being asked to vote on, it's obvious this is to merely validate one side rather than offering a real choice on the future of the map/vault system.
i feel like this is over-engineering for engineering sake, I agree with both Vinyl117 and Emperor_Penguin, improving the current vault should be the priority, vinyl117 makes an interesting point having tagline descriptors makes it so people can if they want look for maps that have been tagged as expansion heavy or reclaim heavy and the like. adding an extra layer to the current system aka improving it. i see this as way better than what's being suggested by morax as I currently understand it.
My question is, will this election result in the term of the position holder being reset or simply a continuation of the current term. because resetting the term being served on a closed election is in my view questionable, to say the least.
