View Full Version : Should we hold elections for "Site Director"?



Phrost
17th January 12, 05:15 PM
So it looks like Steve is otherwise occupied, and I figured it'd be an interesting way of doing things... to let the community itself pick the person who will set the tone for the site.

Of course, current guidelines will be in effect; said person won't be allowed to delete threads, ban people out of spite, etc. And hopefully that individual would be somewhat technically qualified to navigate around the site's admin interface and solve minor technical problems.

Or should I just fucking quit firing up new websites and do this shit myself?

If you don't have time, Phrost ..I'm sure someone or a few people could manage things for a while.
I wouldn't want to commit to anything more than the occasional article or maybe looking after the sports forum. I don't want to have to cop out on you when my schedule gets too busy.
Ajamil and Molocule are good candidates , I think.

Honestly, since it's you guys, whenever a decision like this comes up I always default to choosing a person who'd look at doing the job as a sort of "duty" rather than an opportunity. The latter almost always ends up abusing authority or trying to further a personal agenda of some sort.

But the main reason for thinking of doing it this was is specifically because I haven't been very plugged in here lately, and so I wouldn't be able to determine who that individual would be.

Phrost - I think this position is going to be a self-nominated thing. Whoever wants to step up, has the time and inclination should throw their hat in the ring (serious contenders only) and then IF we have more than one it comes down to a public vote?

Of course nominees must be ready for the mockfest.

Perhaps, like the sound of humpback whale mating calls, this will call out to them through the vast digital wasteland:

Defects of carnitine transport often appear as heart disease. Carnitine acts a shuttle for fatty acid chains across the mitochondrial membrane. When damaged, the products from this system accumulate and have damaging effects upon cell membranes, probably in the way of inhibition of prenylation of critical signal transduction proteins involved with everything from cell division to 'getting thelma back into her groove'.

Severe cases involve heart failure early on and may affect nearly 1 in 10000 people. Since a major factor controlling beta oxidation, a...no the major energy production route in cells of the heart, is the mitochondrial membrane transport, this condition is characterized by weak heart muscle and the inability to oxidize these fats quickly by the mtochondria.

You'll never get a technically adept director by making it a popularity contest. Most of the members here have scratch marks on their monitors from past attempts to save images that they see and like.

You'll never get a motivated director if he has to work within arbitrary constraints imposed by someone who isn't here much and has never displayed any leadership capacity.

If you love something, set it free. Let its director have real autonomy, and either free it form any attachment to the Creative Combat brand, or open up the books on that entity so that people know what they'd be getting into. Based on what I currently know, I'd say you're one IRS audit away from joint and several liability for a ton of cash; any sensible site director would want to know the score first.

Until the last 4 years or so the Lieutenant Governor (modeled after the VP of the federal government) here didn't actually have ANY responsibilities except to break a tie in the state senate and take over if the Governor dies. Eventually they amended the state constitution to include some daily responsibilities for the Lieutenant Governor as people were putting their names in to the elections literally so they could sit around all day and do nothing while getting paid.

So you're saying you don't want the job. Message received.The message wasn't for you. It was for anyone who was considering taking the job, and it goes like this:

Before you do it, make Phrost open the books to you, and have someone go over then with you. A CPA would be good. A tax lawyer would be better. Get tax payments records and income records for all Creative Combat sites going back to 2002, and make sure you know where things stand.

Don't take Phrost's word for any of it.

The idea that the site director should be technologically literate is silly. The site director should be someone with business and legal savvy who will farm out the actual work of maintaining the site to India.

If someone wants the job, they're entitled to know what they're getting into, financially and legally. What I did was legal. Tax evasion isn't. So either show the books to the applicants, or they'll know there's an issue. After that it's up to them.

"Site Director" doesn't sound at all like that. Have you ever heard of director's liability?

No, I don't know that. You may be using legal language here that you don't understand. If so, clarify your usage.

Doesn't matter, unless by "director" you really mean "admin"...in which case, call it what it is and stop using fancy-sounding terms that you don't understand. A director of a not-for-profit arm of an enterprise with a tax problem is on the hook, regardless of the not-for-profit status. And I'm pretty sure you haven't even registered Sociocide as not-for-profit, so even that invalid defense would be unavailable to a director.

So the site director is either:

1) The Uber Moderator - King of teh Mods like Sting in that film - with no finaical/legal liabilty

or

2) A front/patsy for Phrost's evil tax doging empire


and in either case is basically a human anti-spambot?

The admin is an anti-spam bot who gets moaned at when stuff (like search) doesn't work. They are also an uber-mod with the power to hire and fire other mods. The other mods are supposed to help with the anti-spam bot duties.

What the site really needs, on top of a dedicated community organizer/shepherd/whatever the fucking title, is someone who can help spruce up the landscaping a bit, with an eye to making the front page look less shitty.

The least technically complicated way to do that would be to nudge everyone who posts a thread in a front page feeder forum, to follow a certain set of formatting guidelines to make them look a bit nicer, and failing that, to do some minor formatting edits of threads that aren't done correctly.
