Reading back through the EC skype discussions, these are the points and reasons why each candidate was nominated or suggested:

Hiigar
  • Being an incumbent GM
Anthony
  • Being an incumbent GM
Billy
  • Mature, fairly neutral (as in didn't contest in the recent election, and tends not to take sides in Alliance discussions, and not a Director or current Staff member.)
Dyran
  • Active and contributing to the Alliance
Greg
  • Previous administrative experience, maturity and neutrality also.
Nathan
  • Previous experience in moderating (Speaker before Ramon), maturity and activity.
Stan
  • Contested Presidential position
JM
  • Active and contributes a lot to the Alliance
But Stan, these two positions were not 'chosen' by the President and Vice President. There was a discussion, and a vote, which was followed. This is, in fact, more democratic than even the Charter requires, which states:
A5C2.03(b) All global moderators shall be appointed by the Vice President on the advice and consent of the Executive Council from qualified applicants.
The advice was clear and consent was certain.

Inactive Nations: Removal Following attempts to contact inactive members via both email and forum PM, and no response via either, I am announcing today that the following Alliance memberships have been revoked:
  • Hiigar (Hiigara)
  • simsamerica (Torainn)
  • Krisman (Caravella-Guatalaga)
  • Kevin (Corraile)
  • Leandro (Galbadia)
While none of the members leaving today are eligible for Honorary Membership, under the rules stated in the Charter, I would nonetheless like to thank them all for their contribution to the Alliance during their membership.
Alliance documentation will be updated in due course.

It's sad to see those members go but rules are rules.

Wiki Staff Appointment After discussing with the EC, Ramon and I have agreed to make SimEmirate (Dejon) a wiki admin, to help keep templates, pages and so forth up to date.
I'm sure he'll do great, with his wealth of wiki knowledge!

Site Updates A site update has been conducted. There are still a few things going on, so please don't be alarmed if a few things don't quite look right at the moment. This has firstly allowed reCAPTCHA 2 to be installed, which hopefully will bring a significant reduction to the amount of spam. A second small update is new BBCode, which I think for us could be pretty useful. You should notice a new 'wiki' code, which allows direct linking to Alliance wiki pages. This means rather than having this:

Code: Select all

[url]http://aoin.eu/wiki/index.php?title=Mikenstein[/url]
I can simply have this:

Code: Select all

[wiki]Mikenstein[/wiki]
Please note, due to limitations with BBcode and HTML, this is limited to one-word wiki pages e.g. "Mikenstein" will work but not "New Duveland". I am investigating ways around this.
Thank you for bearing with us, and any more updates I will be sure to let you know!

I like this addition, but it has been ruined by many annoying bugs. I hope you will solve soon

Homepage Image Competition On the main Alliance homepage, you can see a collage of city building images from nations. These images, are, however, fairly old and could do with updating. In order to facilitate this, I am asking for submissions. Please upload up to 5 images via the form below. Once a number has been received, there will be a poll to determine which images will make it onto the homepage. The nature of the poll and the number of images selected will be determined at a later stage.
