Let's elect a Council [Discussion]
« on: April 18, 2016, 08:42:02 pm »

So let's make a council. As per the proposed rules...

Bijuu Council Rules and Guidelines

1] The Bijuu Council will consist of 5 members.
2] Council Members elections will occur every 6 months.
3] Council Members cannot be judges for Bijuu matches.
4] Council Members cannot be Current/Active Kages or Bijuu Host/Owners.
5] Hosts who have been stripped are eligible to run for a council seat.


So who fits that criteria?

Here are some names of forum folk and non-forum folk...I would love to have others who do not frequent the forum proposed as well, of course they would have to start.... But anyone proposed would have to post they even want the job.

Some names to consider in no particular order:

Yomi
Asadi
Alucard
Tatsuya
Raifudo
Shinro
Sabumaru
Zachariah
Soya

People Who Are Interested in Being a Council Member:
Silver Moonfire
Eric
Chinote
Genesis
Jay
Hades

People Who are NOT interested in Being a Council Member:
Kirk
Kayenta Moenkopi
Shadow
Anshin
Ratatosk
Gitsune

So this is just a starter list of people. If your name is here please reply yes or no to an interest in taking on this role. Or if your name is not here and you are interested, please volunteer.

Now...I see no need to rush rush this thing. We need to have 5 members and people will have to vote. But everyone should spread the word we are trying to create a council and get some community input going on here.

I will be editing this first post when and if people reply to indicate who is interested and keep tabs of those that are proposed and stuff.

No. Not at the moment. It is something I may be interested in in the future. But for now I don't think I'd be able to contribute to the fullest.

Well, i am not so often on the forum, frankly since I never had much of motivation to be on it?
This would change it. It would give me a reason and surely my curiousity will do the rest.

Also i can't douse a forum into FIRE so thats good, yes?

I am interested, but i would like to know following:
What exactly would the council do?
Why aren't they allwoed to be current Kage? Just curious here. Does this reflect in the Roleplay, somehow? You know i am a sucker for good stories.

So let's make this a goood chapter, shall we?

something that may be useful in your mountains of spare time silver...lol

read this whole section on all thing bijuu to get up to speed. I would start here with the rough draft of rules...
http://forum.shinobilegends.com/index.php/topic,8791.0.html

but to answer your immediate question...Current Kages and hosts and leaders of organizations can't be council members int he interest of staying unbiased toward the rulings they hand out.

to avoid potential favoritism and such.

anyway...everything is not finalized just yet. We still need to cleanup the gray areas. Getting council elected is just one part of the clean up.

You knew i would ask for the rules. And what spare time? I only have a tiny hill left!

* rocks his spiders in his arms* Someone gotta take care of the spiderlings...then place them in suna to peek on people...I mean..I would never  observe my own village all the time and hope to peek on fine inviduals~

Damn those are lots of rules as i may say. Very intensive. And confusing me. now i know what is menat with clean up.

Well looking forward to the council, whoever may be on there.

I've had a few bijuu, I've judged a few bijuu matches, I've made and implemented quite a few bijuu rules. I've been an active kage while having a bijuu. Those 'tasks' have happened over the past few years...never once was I accused of being biased.

As far as I can tell I've been a pseudo council member this whole time. The only difference is that this would make it official. It would also bind me from being able to get a bijuu if I so wanted one or be a kage in that same respect. Not a huge fan of that. While I'm not saying the council is a bad idea for others it's not for me.

I can continue doing what I have been doing and not be on the council. Unless something changes (my mindset or w/e) I'm going to stay in the pseudo council.

I am going to have to decline being a council member, as I personally dislike Bijuu and the current state of the RP community

I'm not a fan of the community either, but I think we can get better. Hence, why I said yes. :)

I think it is the wish of everyone to see the community improve. Why else would we bother to keep trying?

But I also understand that this will be a stressful position to fill. So while I personally am not up to this chore, I am most thankful for those who are willing to run for a position on the council.

I'm surprised I was considered, brings a little itty bitty tear to my eye. I do creep on certain topics to stay informed about things in the community, most of the stuff is Biju related. But, I'm not sure if I can...

but to answer your immediate question...Current Kages and hosts and leaders of organizations can't be council members int he interest of staying unbiased toward the rulings they hand out.

Would I have to step down as Leader of Manji to be considered? Is anybody treating them as a full fledged Organization? If not, awesome, then I'd love to try my hand. If so... awesome, finally getting the respect they deserve!!

Like Mad(Shad) said before, it would bind the possibility of trying for a Biju or even trying for the Kage hat. But with the Biju harvest merciless Bocch is undertaking, I don't think it'd be a problem.

Did we say organizations too? I thought it was just current hosts and village ladles? I somehow typed ladles instead of leaders but I liked it so I left it. :D

There are a few issues with the council that people will need to become aware of...

issues makes it sound horrible. lol

what i mean is...workings.

It was proposed that the positions be temporary and rotate out every few months. so certainly you would not be locked into the job forever and barred from taking on roles that are excluded from being a council member. like kage...

Manji who what???
lol

Uhm, we talked about what if a council member becomes a host...well they step down and are replaced.

things like that.

Duties will have to be ironed out for sure. These rules and guidelines have not been all ironed our yet, but clearly it is time to pick this chore back up again and get things moving, inspire interest again and motivate each other to finish things up.

these half formed...more than half truly...but incomplete rule sets, terms for service on the council, duties for council members...and of course how to handle the ever popular IC hunt...still need to be finalized.

ah another post let me read....

hmmm, I feel that the organization head who has members who are hosts would fit the same scenario as a kage of a village who had hosts running around too. but no...i do not see that stated in that manner in the rough draft of the rules.

just another issue that needs to be finalized/voted upon?

We'll make it big! You'll see. That little guy is going to rule the world.... or maybe just some smaller area... too much paperwork for all that world stuff.
