Well, a lot of dirty politics seem to be at work at the moment, and that is causing problems for those people who have not yet voted, and for the potential unity of the community as we emerge on the other side. It's a lot of "He said She said" type of stuff, and it's mostly garbage. I cannot control what people do off the server, the forum, or our voice chat, and there will always be those people who are more interested in drama than actual leadership. However, I can control what happens on the server, to a certain extent.
The official policy is not to mention why you voted for/against someone while the election is in progress. You can say who you voted for, but understand that this is an issue that people feel strongly about, and going any further will probably lead to a lot of hard feelings. Please do not endorse a specific candidate during the election process.
I am hoping that the senior players and staff of the server are able to come together on the other side of this election, and rally around the winner, whoever it is. If we cannot unite behind the new owner on the other side of this election, this server will not survive.
