Dear Fellow members i have an idea come to me, since our most recent and unessacary spam attack on our most hawt of forums i believe that we maybe either need another admin (the most power means that they can work while others rest or at least power nap or some more mods although not as much could get done with more mods.


For admins i have some suggestions i believe either myself, BK, warren or some more of the european active mods as then more of the timezones are covered then.

That is my suggestion, decide and judge accordingly to your own concience

We've had much spam in the past, and it doesn't seem to have affected us as a group (except for the "High Ground Construction Crisis", which gave us Steel Curtain).
So I don't think we need more Admins, let's just keep track of who breaks the rules, and proper action will most likely be taken.

Pretty sad that we really only have one admin. You do the work of three though so I guess it doesn't matter.

I like how you put Warren :D. But yes this is a good Idea, I single handedly deleted an entire spam topic about an Allience.

Furthermore, seeing as how we're both admins, what do you think of Oucho's proposal?

I'm cool with another admin I think, since we've always had 4. I felt like we had that power of three thing going on, but it technically is 4. Anyway, an instant response isn't too necessary, so I don't think we should pick solely on time zone, not that I have many better candidates. I think it should be a two part contest, build off plus a current admin examination. Finally, the emperor gets final say and announces his choice. Awe and I get to review and also input on the selection, but I think the real choice is Ian's. (chances are we'll all agree anyhow)

Oucho and Sammy seem like the two bigger candidates. Sammy has a disadvantage though, seeing as how his parents have gone ultra restrictive on his computer time.

Categories, eh?

1: Ship!
2: Land vehicle!
3: Scene-building! (ugh)

It's evenly balanced, and tests the three skills needed as a COP Admin. And then, another test I'll discuss with Gus via email.

Emperor, Gus, do you approve of these categories?

I like them, and for this build off we are going for classic Coalition style builds, so it's gonna be cruisers and battleships with tanks. Yes, tanks, we are testing your coalition building skill and style, so tanks are naturally a prime choice for categories. We want admins to be an example for the Coalition. I agree on the categories, but just FYI candidates, don't build something scrawny for land vehicle. In my mind, land vehicle implies tank.

Mobile artillery with treads counts as a tank, right?
And does ship specifically mean large spacecraft, or can it also be a dropship, fighter etc.?

i agree about the skip part, can it be like an atmospheric craft...if so i'm ready because i really don't want to kill it and it has many use pieces

I could make a:
1.Ship no (I only have like 8 of those 3 stud high angled pieces and it takes like 3 months for me to get my Pick a Brick in yet there is a Lego factory in Tennese and I'm in North Carolina)
2.Land vehicle maybe
3.Scene Building YES
As well as not having many ship pieces at my disposal, I probably couldn't make new ship (or land vehicle for that matter) every other month.

No. We're based on merit, not elections. Someone good at keeping order? Mod them (like Anders, Sammy, Oucho, and just about all the others [in fact, everyone but Phaze]).

Someone good at keeping order and building the theme? Sounds like a good candidate for the 4th admin spot.

Build three things:

2: A COP-style land vehicle (preferably an armored assault vehicle like a tank, or a COP-ified Titan from Warhammer 40K)
3: A scene depicting something COP (a battle, a government building, something like that)

On a different note. I believe that The "victor" will then be obligated to continue to be able to produce decent mocs. As heavy handed as that may seem It seems important to me for the "victor" to be able to keep up a decent contribution. Seeing as he would be a role model. Also this would rule out those who would build one decent thing then revert to mediocre builds.

I would love a shot at the adminship, reasons being:

1. I'm homeschooled (active often)
2. I use proper grammer, spelling, and I do not over or under-react
3. I build the theme as I had over 30 C.O.P. mocs before getting this new account
4. I have knowlege of the history of the group (and building skills to match)

anyway it is all up to you admins if I'm allowed a shot...

Edit: took my time to read the thread, and I'm begining my building now...
