PostSubject: VST Elections   Wed Jun 10, 2015 6:44 pm

OOC: I forgot this game has an active board.

Good evening,
The nomination period has now ended. I'm happy to say that we have two candidates for the VST position of Falling Waters.
Applications are posted below.
We now begin the one week Q&A period. This period runs from now until Wednesday 6/17 at 1159PM, at which time the one week voting period will begin. Further information on how to vote will be provided at that time.
Electorate members are encouraged to ask questions in the MES NY012 group so that the answers can be seen by all, and to avoid duplicate questions.

Application for Apocalypse VST – NY012
Brian Murphy – bmurphy79@gmail.com
US2013090045

Objectives-
Continue growing the Apocalypse genre both locally and regionally.

Maintain continuity and excellence in storytelling. Continue long term project of training future Storytellers (Will probably pick up one more this year).

The latter half of this year will see the ramp up to NERE 2016, look forward to working with that team to develop Regional story.

Plan of Action- I intent to continue to provide story and plot guidance within the framework of allowing my aVSTs freedom of action.

As we've grow, the 'generalist' approach to staffing has become more difficult. Will start formalizing aVST roles more. (esp towards influence, chiminages, etc)

With NPC leadership removed, we have reached the point in the narrative where the PCs should start being proactive as opposed to reactive. Looking forward to facilitating more excellent role playing.

Continue to move towards the Apocalypse.

Objective:

For the next year of game play, it is my intention to promote an atmosphere of enjoyment within the shared story role of the game. In addition, building a stronger sense of community with the players while promoting W:tA genre within our MES universe.

Plan of Action:

My plan will include increasing the storytelling staff to provide greater availability to the players. Allowing for further exposition into personal stories of the players, pack dynamic and an increase in the exploration of the umbra and spiritual side of the game. A dedicated spirit keeper will be assigned to further those ends. I would like to strengthen contact with other games and integration of national plot for continuity of the MES universe. Improve open dialogue with the players to be able to craft better plots and story and addressing community concerns about the game to forward our hobby in a positive manner. Working within the gaming community to increase our player base by finding and mentoring new players as well as encouraging veteran players who have taken some time off. Increased mentoring of new players within the genre to craft a better shared story.

Assisted with creating and running a national event game for OWbN

Members of NY-012-D,
The Q&A period for the Sabbat, Cam / Anarch and Werewolf VST elections will ended at 11:59pm tonight. At 12:00am Wednesday morning we will enter the voting phase. During this phase, we will have a one week voting period in which electorate members submit their votes, at the end of this time, the votes will be tallied by at least two proctors to insure correct counting, and a winner will be announced. Voting will close on Tuesday 6/23 at 11:59pm EST.

Those Eligible to Vote:
All paid members of NY012D that also have a character associated with the respective VSS.

The candidates:
Sabbat: Isaac Sharp
Cam / Anarch: Doug Calderon and John Averill
Werewolf the Apocolypse: Brian Murphy and James Jennings-Wyckoff

How to Vote:
Send an email with each of your votes (one for each VST election you are eligable to vote in) to both dst.ny012@gmail.com and fallingwatersrep@gmail.com (emails must be sent to both addresses to be valid) with the following;

Subject Line: Sabbat VST election / or / Cam Anarch VST election / or / Werewolf VST election / as appropriate
In the body of the email:
Your name
Your MES membership #
Your order of preference for the candidates.

A sample vote might look like this:
1. Isaac Asimov
2. Richard Matheson
3. Sir Arthur C Clarke
4. NOTA

You may vote for as many or as few candidates as you like, but you may only vote for each candidate one time. If none of the candidates appeal to you, you may register a vote for None of the Above (or NOTA for short). NOTA is always a candidate in every MES election, and occasionally wins. In the event that NOTA wins any of the elections, the DST will continue on as an iVST, or appoint an ADST as iVST and a new election will be held in which none of the candidates who ran previously are eligible to run.

As I’m sure some of you have heard, Brian Murphy is stepping down as VST of Apocalypse. As a result I at this time I am issuing an all-call for the office of the Venue Storyteller of Falling Waters in the Buffalo, NY domain (NY-012-D). The VST has the following powers and responsibilities, according to the MES Membership Handbook(p.36):
Specific authority – May deliver letter of counciling to players within thier jurisdiction for game related issues, refer disciplinary issues to the Regional Cordnator for investigation, and review open items pending low approval acording to the sanctioned rules. May make changes to a scene within the same game session.
Required responsibilities - Run at least one game in a month, manage character sheets attached to the VSS including approvals, file an on-time monthly report, manage out-of-game character actions as determined by the VSS, respond to any rules or character questions by members of the VSS, and run any plot kits and/or settings changes required by the storyteller chain.
Prestige budget - Unlimited
Interested parties should submit an application to the email at DST.NY012 @ Gmail dot com . An application should include the following according to the MES Membership Handbook (p. 42):
Identification: Name, Membership Number

Applications should be submitted by 11:59pm Wednesday, September 9th.
Following the application period, there will be a one-week Application Review period during which time candidates will engage in a public Q&A session with venue members, and their applications (with personal information redacted) will be posted for review by the venue. Following that there will be a one-week voting period, which will begin when a set of instructions about how to vote and who is eligible to vote will be posted here.

Good Evening,

The question and answer period for the Apoc VST is now over, although you can still ask questions. We are now in the voting period. All eligible voters (players with an up to date membership with a character in with the VSS) can submit their votes to the DST and the DC email.

All ballots must include the following information for verification purposes:
Full Name
Mind’s Eye Society Membership Number
Submitted vote

Send all votes to both
dst.ny012@gmail.com
fallingwatersrep@gmail.com

Mind’s Eye Society uses a system called the Instant Run Off System that allows a true majority to be reached without the need for time-consuming separate runoff elections. Each voter ranks the candidates from first to last preference. A voter may rank all, some, or none of the candidates. If a voter finds a particular candidate unacceptable, they should leave the candidate off the ballot. If a voter finds none of the candidates to be an acceptable choice, they may choose to cast a vote for “None of the Above”. Write-in candidates are not allowed, and any vote for someone who is not a candidate in an election will be counted as a vote for “None of the Above”.

As Bucky has stepped aside, the only remaining candidate on the ballot is Charles Waterman​.

The Voting period will end on September 30th at 11:59pm.
