    @ Legio: You haven't my permission to nominate my post. I don't want to be nominated in this competition and especially not by you.

In any case we check nominations validity and in the case we see something problematic, we will discuss it with the member who cast that specific nomination.

    I'm at your disposal for further clarifications

    I think my post, which is doing nothing more than quoting Trudeau, does not fit the requirements to be eligible for this...

    Sometimes a statement you never thought would be uttered is, the impossible made real, and one can’t help but wonder at the majesty of revelation. Consider the submission withdrawn. Be well

    No problem, I've already removed it

    Anyways, feel free to nominate other worthy posts, if you spot them, but also please remember to check the rules.

    I had indicated that I wanted to enter the competition with the post from the relativity thread, not the other ones.

    Apologies, I've updated the poll.

    3. Be logically coherent, well organized and communicate its points effectively.
    This stipulation is why I'll never have a nomination here xD

    Just an update on Post of the Fortnight competition. PotF has been on hold since there was a drop in forum activity, most likely due to an unprecedentedly hot summer in many places of the world at the same time when Covid restrictions were lifted all over.

    The previous round accumulated only two nominations and they were tied, so no winner has been announced yet. I am going to restart the competition soon and go through some Discussion and Debate posts retroactively and nominate some. So you can do us a great favor by nominating posts yourself to promote quality posting and reward those who put time and consideration into writing good posts.

    Most likely we will have a summer round soonish with posts from a longer period of time than usual and then gradually shorten the time span as things pick up on the forum again (looks already a bit better!). That will involve some promotional posts to remind people about nominating and voting. I will consider what to do with the so far undecided round.

    If you have any ideas or opinions on how any of this should be handled, I am eager to hear you out! Flinn is unavailable at the moment and Lord Thesaurian wants time off everyday duties, so we can take some liberties concerning how things are done unless guys in the gaming staff disagree.

    Good idea, this was always cool to look at. Having a longer period to draw nominees from might also increase the quality of posts nominated!

    That one came out a bit wrong. I did not mean that now that the senior members are out of the picture, we can start messing around like there's no tomorrow.

    What I meant is that now that it is just me instead of a team of three people running the competition, this is a good moment for someone interested to get involved and help me with developing the competition and, importantly, nominating posts. It would be a way to introduce oneself to the staff and become a staff member eventually. For someone who has a thing for quality posting and organizing things.

    An excellent point, Narf!

    Flinn was against extending the period and for good reasons, but this is a special time and we must adapt while intending to return to the old standards once long-awaited travel possibilities and summer activities no longer compete against hanging out at gaming forums.

    Would it be too cumbersome to have hunters enlisted to hunt for good posts? If a set number of people were tasked with that it might help create the necessary content. Those people would pledge to pick posts objectively. Members of academy picks the posts and we the people vote for them.
