Disqualification is off.  Disdisqualified, or I suppose simply qualified :)

Okay then. Now, can we get back to the topic of voting and nominating?

I would suggest that what Kamron did was equivalent to having out-of-town carpetbaggers* come in to vote. Now that this behavior has been exposed, there are two questions that remain.

1. Will he have the chutzpah to still want to be included in the vote?

2. Will the regular members of the forum want to be moderated by someone who was elected by people with no skin in the game?

I call on Kamron to voluntarily withdraw from the election and for all regular forum members to withdraw their votes from Kamron. For those that frequent these forums and want to vote for Kamron, I'd like to hear what they think he brings to the table after this deplorable incident.



*From Merriam-Webster definition for carpetbagger:
outsider; especially : a nonresident or new resident who seeks private gain from an area often by meddling in its business or politics

I don't mid if he runs, infact i say he doesn't need to withdraw. There was a misunderstanding and Virgil said you will have to have a min, number of post to count. No reason that he can't keep himself in.

It is clear that my sense of ethical behavior differs from yours. :) The "misunderstanding" was with whether the handles registered to vote belonged to Kamron. As it was, they were not Kamron's, but outsiders he asked to register, specifically to vote on his behalf.

As a chat room user, do you want a mod that was voted on by people that will never be in chat? And why would anyone want to be a mod so badly that they would ask people from school to register purely to vote?

I'd like to point out that this is no different than asking a person to register to vote so that they can vote for me in a real election.

Not really. It does not effect the voters in any way. A better comparison would be having someone from Europe come over to the US and vote on the person they want, and then go back to Europe. The end result of the vote does not effect them in any way. :)

False, Fish. They were actually previous players of CW:US and a few played CW:TS. Who says they wouldn't have came back? I pitch CW/CW2 to them all the time.

All of them have played CW:US or CW:TS to some extent.

To me it remains cheating. It doesn't matter if they have played CW:TS or CW:US; they have never joined the forums or chat before and I think it should be the CW community who decides.

It is cheating, and I will never be modded by Kamron, but that has little to do about the cheating actually.

This doesn't violate any stated conditions of the poll.

But it violated every implied condition. And you know it you little unethical cheat. I was on these boards when you were a mod and I well remember how badly you did that job. The people that are voting for you are all newbies or your cronies that never expect to be on here and to be moderated by you.
