Question for all candidates..
Please summarise why the other candidates would make an excellent choice for Curator.
Sundance....well...hmm....OK. He is very laid back, and a genuinely nice guy and even though he's putting on an act in here (He is an actor after all) he'd do this job excellently. Not as good as me though. Because I am awesome.
Fabolous would make an excellent Curator due to his plus one helm of avenging and high skill points in the fields of necromancy and flamecasting. Seriously, though, he's a quality Magistrate and always posts insightfully in the CdeC, showing his good judgement and his commitment to the posts he undertakes. Plus, he pretty much runs Anagennese at the moment, and while off-site it had demonstrated to me his administrational capacities.
Rome...Romey Romey Rome. Where to start? Me and Rome met in the summer of '69 at Glastonbury, and after a brief yet passionate love affair, we became firm friends. His guiding hand has led me through many adventures. He is, actually, a very good moderator, and is one of the few people on these boards whom I can see using their entire mind for any one problem or thread, whereas most people seem to opt to use about half of theirs. Furthermore, he is a friendly and helpful person and says nice things about people even when they're being cocks. I have an example somewhere...
Ah, there it is. See how nice he was to this Sundance fellow? And what with Sundance being a pretty stupid guy, as far as I can tell. I read this "Curator Debate" thread or something the other day, right, and seriously, the guy seems like a total douche. It was hilarious. Talking about Star Wars or some load of bull****. You should check it out. Seriously.Sundance....well...hmm....OK. He is very laid back, and a genuinely nice guy and even though he's putting on an act in here (He is an actor after all) he'd do this job excellently. Not as good as me though. Because I am awesome.

But the bigger question here is what I would do differently. Obviously the majority of what will be handled with almost any position is hard to predict beforehand, but of what I know I will taking care of, I would differ in certain areas. One is a difference, but I think that misses the mark. It is more an expansion. In your term, as mention you created certain new threads tracking and informing with details. You also continued to update other older helpful threads. I have designs on expanding this group of threads, and have even more information available quickly.
Beyond that, I think what would be my biggest difference is my effort to change what I have previously described as the biggest problem facing the Curia at present, activity levels. In this front, if elected I would promote the Curia using my position as Curator to a larger extent than I can recall being done before. The Curia has everything in place to still be of importance, but what brings members into the Curia? How are they finding us? The Curia needs to once again become a destination for members. I will seek to make it so.
I'm kidding, of course. I know there are other candidates. Yeah.
And now this is where I answer the question seriously.
I'm sorry to say I have never had extended contact with Rome on a personal level, so others clearly know him better. What I do know and have seen from him offers that there is a lot there that would make him a capable Curator. He is a moderator, yet in my role as a Magistrate he is not a moderator I see ending up defending bad infractions in the Tribunal. This attests to a significant level of competence in judgment, which is a primary aspect of the Curators job. He is also a very accessible individual, friendly. These are good qualities in a Curator, who needs to be open and welcoming to communication from members all of all types.
And then there is Sundance. What to say about Sundance? There are so many qualities to this man, err, kid. Cause you know, he is the Sundance Kid. But anyways, where was I? Oh right, his qualities. It is hard to pick what most makes Sundance worthy of Curator. Of course his greatest achievements have come in his service with the Elite Strike Force Squad Team #7. But which of these was greatest? I cannot say. There are so many heroic (or anti-heroic, if you are one those kind of people *shakes head is disgust*) deeds Sundance has performed. But I would venture to put forth one great quest of the strike team, one mission that stands above the rest. This adventure, as chronicled in best selling video game Legend of Final Colossus XVI: Curse of the Unnecessary and Overabundant Annoying Subtitles, where Sundance and Boeing set out from their headquarters (in the Sogdian uplands, if you believe the stories) and with the help of many friends (including Magic Man and the one and only Fuzz) defeated the darkness spreading across the land. That was actually some evil guy on the moon. Who was actually (as found out in a dramatic reveal) a close relative of Sundance. And Boeing (as found out in another dramatic reveal). How that all works seeing that Sundance and Boeing are not related, is unclear. However, the game was handled as JRPG and so plot doesn't necessarily have to ascribe such silly western ideals as making any damn sense. Just go back to starring at all the spiky hair on androgynous men. We think they are men anyways. Its a little unclear to be honest. That all said, Sundance's slaying of the great evil that would have destroyed the world is an epic feat, one of many. I would single it out as his greatest feat though. (Narrowly edging out being, along with Boeing, the first male JRPG characters to be definitively male looking. Many of us had given up hope such a day would ever come. It was a glorious, glorious day.) Defeats evil. Is manly, even though he is a Kid (think about it). So many reasons why The Sundance Kid would be an excellent Curator.
Ah. And you believed me when I said I was going to be serious, didn't you? Noob.
That was possibly the best description of me I have ever read.
I love you so much. Vote for Fab, I don't even care any more. <3
Et tu, Brute?
The scheming, the damned scheming puts Ancient Rome to shame!! I should have known Sundance was a trojan! Take the votes then 'withdraw' at the last second, Mugabe would be proud.

Holy crap I just got a flashback to 1990.
