    It seems like we have a wider range of perspectives currently, and I'm not sure I would say the state of the community currently is very good.

    Re: Suggestion: Team Field Marshall elections

    Personally, I'm against community voted FMs as I think each Army should be voting for their own FM, but I think its an interesting idea to say the least. I think it brings in some negative politics of needing to run with someone electable in order to win, or the two people both being from the same Army yet one of them will be running the opposite Army sort of thing (people are going to want to be represented by someone from their Army, not the other one).

    Generally not, no. Though, that can be a good suggestion on it's own.

    That also brings up a point of how the voting system would even work. Because not only do you have to find two people that would like to run together but you would also have people jumping ranks in order to get this to work. For instance a High com member of Blue might not see eye to eye with any other Redd High com so in order to make that pair he might select someone from their officer core. Not saying its a bad thing but just might bring bad blood between certain members that worked hard for the position that wants it.

    Overall on the idea I don't think its a bad one. I'm just trying to play devils advocate.

    Re: Suggestion: Team Field Marshall elections

    I can see the merge of the elections being a little touchy, and finding a partner from the other army seems unlikely to happen consistently, but I think it'd ante up comradery for HC decisions. Definitely worth a shot.

    It's definitely not a decision to make lightly if we're considering precedent, but if we decide to make it a one-time "Experiment" with no guarantees that it would become the norm, it takes away some of the potential drawback.

    With the community sized as it currently is, I don't see any harm whatsoever in restricting anyone in the community from running, which would mean this "teams" bit could be doable. But even if it sets no precedent, we'd have to be sure that everyone in the community is prepared to accept the result for the duration of a war.


    Real power comes from the man next to you and is built on the foundations of brotherhood and unity. There is no such thing as a one man army.
