Well it’s been a while since the last one, and this one is as dramatic as they get.
The position up for grabs is for “Moderator for Announcements and Q&A Co-Mod: Campaigns” What ever that is… As you might be aware though it is less about were the candidates will moderate, but more about the influence they will have as far as voting on if people get those warning points some of us manage to collect so readily.
What makes this election some what special is the candidates. They really are at polar ends of the spectrum.
Ms. Maya the Bee, I think it is fair to say is on the far left of the field,
Yato God of Tofu, on the other hand is from the right.
Kyon. is errr… WHO?
The first bit of intrigue is that possibly the favorite for the post ‘And Peggy’ dropped out for reasons unknown, though it is possible that her age may have been an issue. We are not sure but some people have said that she is just 13 years old.
Now I have tried to contact Maya in order to ask her what she stands for but she has blocked my mails. So I can’t really get anything from her. It seems unfair some how that the only person we can really report anything on is Toffington. Yes Toffington, a nickname I gave him a long time ago, that he adopted while on AS-NS. Toffington has been an admin on AS-NS from its conception, and he has been a fantastic asset to AS-NS.
Now you might think “Hang on, you are being biased here”. My reply would be “Yeah, more than likely”…
You can read the Q&A for yourself. HERE
Here though are their opening statements. All pretty yawn worthy, but then what do you expect?
Well there you have it…
There was some controversy surrounding the questions, as always. With quite a few posts getting chopped, and much was made of the fact Toffington has received a few warnings in his time, though people seem to forget, so has Maya. I think though Toffington has received more apologies because of bad modding decisions, than anyone in the history of AVEN.
While we here at Ace Times pride ourselves on being politically neutral, it is hard for us not to wish the underdog wins ( we will let you decide who we think that person is ).
Voting starts today (at some point).. We will keep you posted..
Stay tuned to Ace Times for the election coverage.
AVEN doesn’t seem to like our election coverage, as they removed my status update linking to this article. We just report, you decide (who has no sense of humour).
