My Ranking Points
Hello all. New league of thirteen post coming at you! This is another chance for you to get to know your candidates, and candidates, this is your time to shine. Explain your stances, show your position, and prove why you are the one they should vote for. as some of you know, in some elections we had debate docs for people to share their stance on things. Since there are so many candidates kira and I thought it’d be easier to do a mass post with questions. I will be post the questions in the comments, candidates, please respond to each question in that comment to make things less confusing. If you have a question for a candidate, please ask it on their individual Q & A post, as things will be confusing and crowded enough as it is. Good luck everyone!

In my opinion, a good leader is someone who is willing to admit and take responsibility for their mistakes. They are someone who will listen to everyone’s opinions, not just a few select people. A good leader is someone who wants to help others, has humility, integrity, confidence, and intelligence. Good leaders are those who are always willing to try again, even when it seems like all is lost. They are someone who has new ideas and/or creative changes to improve whatever they’re working on, and they always dedicate their efforts to whatever they do. A good leader works toward a coordinated goal that fits the needs of everyone around them. Finally, a good leader uses teamwork to accomplish their ideas and adapts to the needs around them. They work for the people, not themselves.
Someone who listens to others, and takes in their ideas and uses their power to make sure all ideas are heard. As well as coming up with their own and making sure things get done.
A good leader listens to others, true.
But I also believe a good leader states their concerns and opinions with ease and without hesitation when necessary. It’s good to always listen, don’t get me wrong. But it’s also good to listen to oneself and live by their own truth, while also taking others into consideration.
A good leader is someone who helps. Someone selfless. They can’t care only about them selves. Of course they have to be self-preservative, so they make smart and reasonable decisions, but they have to care about the people that they are leading over. It needs to be a mix, and it is hard to get a perfect blend, but when you do, it can be absolutely amazing
I good leader needs to know when to make sacrifices for what is right, and when to run. A good leader must be honest and kind to help others.
I believe a good leader is someone who is one with the people. One who understands where they come from. I’ll always listen and try to everybody. I also think that a good leader has the kindness but strictness that people need. You have to tell people no, and state your opinions, but do it in a nice way. Leaders need to be fair, brave, and humble, and I think I am all three.
A good leader is someone who can bring people together and inspire others to do whatever they can. They are there if someone is in need and is always willing to lend a helping hand. They will be by your side through whatever and will fight for a cause (in this case connection between site members and equal rights). They are ready to have a laugh but can be serious when/if needed.
I think a good leader is one who makes sacrifices for the team, hard ones, but does it for the greater good. Someone who can relate to their team members and always put their team before themself. Although, a good leader should be able to know when to stop and understand when and if they make mistakes. They should be willing to commit to something and sticking with it. A good leader should always be ready to hear others’ ideas and including some themself.
I think a good leader is somebody who can listen to and represent everyone and make good decisions for the people. They should know how to make hard decisions but also be fair. They should be able to know and admit when they’ve done something wrong but also be confident and work their hardest to make it right. They should be focused and committed and make sure the people stay informed. They should be unbiased in their decisions and not favorite. They should take the advice of the people around them but not be influenced constantly by only one person’s/group’s opinion. They should be intelligent and strong and know how to persevere through the thick and thin. They should accept that they can’t always do it on their own and know when to let others take the lead. They should be not just a representative for everybody but a role model as well.
In my opinion, a good leader must help and appreciate the work that other people do. They make sure everyone is included and strive to keep people happy. They must listen to everyone and help them no matter what and they never give up. They take all ideas into consideration and will do their best, give it their everything and work successfully as a team.
A good leader is someone who works with those they are leading, not against them. They will listen to people who have different opinions, and they’ll take those opinions into consideration. A good leader can also keep those they’re leading motivated and interested in learning/competing/participating. A good leader also stands up for what’s right, and they make sure their voice is heard. A good leader can rise above any argument and push for what’s right!
A good leader needs to work hard and not give up. They need to keep persevering and work well with everyone else. A good leader needs to be kind but if someone is misbehaving they also need to be firm.
What I think makes a great leader is that they listen to everybody and don’t have biases against people just because of one action they commited. They are honest, and help out everybody. They’re confident and passionate about what they do. They believe in everyone, and try to stop fights or something like that when it could escalate to a huge debate. They know people, and what they’re good at, and their strengths and weaknesses. They have to be able to identify their weaknesses, and bring in people to fill those cracks. They have to know that working together, and the people are the key to success and making everything better.
For me, a good leader is someone who is able to make mistakes and grow from them. They should listen to the people- that goes for everything from party planning to idea sharing to fights. They should always be there for people, no matter the past. But the biggest thing I find for a good leader to have is that they are always willing to try again. If at first you don’t succeed, try again, but differently.
I think that in order to answer this question, you have to consider that there are different types of leaders. The term leader is, in essence, someone who is able to lead others in one direction as a body of “government”. I believe that the key value required for being a leader is gaining the respect of your peers. Respect is what makes people follow you willingly, not fear. A leader does not have to be the loudest, kindest, softest, or smartest person in the room. I feel like there is a common misconception that a leader has to be the best – they don’t. Part of being a leader is asking for help, but more importantly surrounding yourself with people who are smart, kind, selfless, etc. as a way to check your own power and make you a better representative of the people. A leader does not have to be loved in order to do their job, they just have to be competent and able to make decisions for the benefit of the group. A leader should be self-sacrificing because their choices determine the future of everyone around them. A leader should listen to the opinions of their people but hold firm on their own morals and judgments. Finally, a leader does not have to be confident, but they must be willing to grow, take risks, and trust themselves.
a good leader is compassionate, and really cares for the people they’re leading. they work well in a team and listen to other people, but also aren’t afraid to share their opinions. they’re honest with others and respect them, and are willing to admit if they’ve done something wrong.
“What will be the hardest part of being on the council if you win?”
I think one of the most difficult things about being on the Council if I do get elected will be the fact that a lot of my amazing, talented, wonderful friends might not make it if I do. There are so many people who are just as qualified as I am, more even. Knowing that one of them could have had that spot instead of me will definitely make me feel pretty guilty, especially since I have a tendency to see others as much better for a job than I am, and so I will feel like I don’t deserve it, which may hinder my ability to contribute to the council. However, I will do my utmost best to be a good leader and member of the council if I am elected, and strive to make this site a better place, no matter what happens.
The hardest part for me would be getting close to everyone on the council. I’m very shy in real life, but on the site my shyness very rarely shows. I’m imagining that it would still be a little hard for me to talk to everyone on the council and I would be anxious about it. But I do think I could overcome that easily 🙂
I think the hardest part will be agreeing. We don’t want to hurt people’s feelings, but sometimes we have to voice our opinions against them if they’re wrong. I’ve gotten a lot better at stating my opinions(in a nice way), but it’ll still be hard if one of my fellow elders are passionate about something I disagree with.
For the me the hardest part of the council will having me not guilt trip myself if I were to get spot. Everyone here deserves and place and I tend to feel guilty if I take something away even if I earned it. Other than that probably figuring out the best way to connect people and make it safe. Docs aren’t the best place but we need to be able to make a safe place for everyone.
I think the hardest part of being on the council will probably be balancing decisions. What do I mean by balance? Well, there will be pros and cons to the decisions that the council members make, and what may be a pro to someone may be a con to another. I think to be able to find the right balance for everyone’s opinions is hard to accomplish, and we are going to have to choose the best decision, even if it isn’t what others want.
I think the hardest part would be working with others. I’m fairly shy IRL and don’t always like to speak up but I think sharing my opinion with others is something I definitely think I should work on but know I can improve on. And though I’m fairly good and experienced with working in teams I feel like it will be challenging for all of us to have to work side by side with 12 others. It’s not anything I don’t think we can achieve though.
For me, the hardest part with being on the council would be making important decisions and balancing everyone’s requirements. I enjoy making decisions but I never want them to hurt anyone in any way. Balancing everyone’s requirements can be hard especially if they’re challenging but if I’m voted, I would make sure that I fulfill everyone’s requests as much as I possibly can, to the best of my ability. <3
I think that the hardest part will be reaching a compromise QUICKLY. At some point, we’d agree, but I think with different opinions it could take time. However, I think having users of different backgrounds on the site will help keep everyone interested.
The hardest part of being on the council would probably be always coming to the right decision because I don’t want people to think that I’m biased and I also don’t want to upset anyone.
I think the hardest part of being on the Council if I win is actually sharing my ideas. I’m the kind of person who has a buckload of ideas but never actually says them because I’m afraid that the other people won’t like them. I’ll keep doubting myself, and my abilities, until I don’t share out at all because I’m too scared to. I’ll also feel like I wasn’t meant to be on the Council, and my spot should’ve gone to someone else who’s had more experience.
The hardest thing… well, seeing some of my friends not make it, and what’s more, not being able to work with them. As many others have said, there are a lot of people who are just as qualified as I am, if not more. I love to work with my friends on ideas I have, and only being able to work with a few of them will be tricky.
The hardest part will be communicating with the other council members. If I get elected, there will be twelve other people I have to work and talk with on a frequent basis. Setting up good communication outlets will be difficult because I do not have established connections with all of the users running. However, I love working with people, so I think it will be a fun experience figuring everything out as a team. I will also be upset if some of my friends do not make it because they are qualified and just as deserving as anyone else.
“how would you handle disagreements within the council?”
It really depends on the disagreement. If there was arguing over a professional thing, like an event, an idea for welcoming, some sort of planning, I and the other members who weren’t involved would handle it democratically. We’d let each person take a stance and give their reasons, then take a vote so it is as fair as possible. If it is a disagreement of a more personal sort, I’d ask the users to have a private conversation about their disagreement and try and work things out. If that didn’t work, I or another council member could help mediate a discussion between the two users.
As I said in my speech, I’m a peacemaker and I’m good at and have experience making compermises. I would try my best to not take sides and try and make a rational compermise.
It would depend heavily on the topic of disagreement, whether I am entitled to object (sometimes, depending on the situation, it’s best to leave things to be worked out between the people arguing) and it would also depend on the severity or damage being caused.
I will not standby if someone on the site is being mentally abused, or harassed.
But I would state my opinion on the subject and suggest that the people arguing talk it over
well, I always try to see things from both sides. Most of the time, both sides have their valid points and not so valid points. You have to try to come up with a compromise that helps both sides.
I would state my opinion, hear what the others have to say and find if there are key points that have some connection, if there is a connection try and make a compromise using it, if not I would have both parties leave and wait until they are calm to further discuss.
I think I would listen to both sides of the argument before giving an answer that will accommodate both sides. In my council speech, I said I was a peacemaker, and I do believe that, if I cannot find a good compromise, I will attempt to resolve the problem without any fighting breaking out.
I would first look at the event. If it was something like a TbT, I think we’d need to stop and look at the needs of the users participating. I it was when to have a party or something like that, I’d just help those disagreeing with each other to reach a choice. We need to remember that the council is working with one another, not against.
I would let everyone share their opinions and collect them and from there, we’d made a pro’s and con’s list and vote. The majority would win, but if not everyone’s satisfied, we would make a compromise, that benefits us all.
I would listen to all of the sides and what people have to say then we would figure out a way to compromise and make it work for everyone.
I think it would depend on what the council was arguing about. If it was just a little thing, like what decorations to put up, or when to have a party, I would try to make a compromise to make everyone happy. I’d be a good listener, and listen to what the others have to say, and help make a decision with that. But if it was something like if half of the people on the Council wanted to bring another person in (that probably wouldn’t happen, but whatever, it’s an example) we could put it to a vote, or put it to a randomizer, or something like that.
It depends. If it was an argument over a theme for a party, or the like, I’d try to hold a vote. With there being 13 people, things would sort out quite easily. That way, we have the people’s opinions. Another way to solve that is to ask those outside of the council, so that we do something more people want. If it’s an argument that goes deeper- two friends hurting each other, for example- then you have to bring them together, alone, and talk it out. Harsh words don’t help anyone.
On the council, every member has to work together, so it’s natural that there will be disagreements in the future. At the same time, members should not try to make an issue out of something that would cause a disagreement. If something is bothering me, I will state it up front because letting feelings of upset stew lead to larger disasters. If other users are arguing, I will not step in unless things are getting out of hand/are damaging to the health of the group. I want to respect everyone’s privacy as much as possible by allowing them to work out their own issues. I do try to be a peacemaker and mediator for users, but I also want to trust fellow council members to act in a mature and responsible way.
as many of the others have already said, it really depends on the situation. if it’s something that can be handled by the involved users with little drama, they should be trusted to sort it out between themselves. however, if the topic of the disagreement is more serious, or if the situation escalates, the other members of the council should try to calmly de-escalate the drama without getting involved, and try to help everyone come to an agreement or compromise using rationality and an unbiased stance.
“how would you make sure to be unbiased in an argument?”
Arguments between site users are not incredibly common, however they are definitely an issue that must be addressed. When users are in a fight, the best course of action is to stay calm. Do not let your emotions go to your head, as you will want to have a clear mind when it comes to dealing with these problems. Stay unbiased. Do not let certain ties or connections to users cloud your judgment. Take a look at both sides of the argument, and deduce whether the problem can be worked out with a compromise, or if one user is clearly in the wrong. Take a very clear, concise approach when wording your judgement. Do not use words that will create chaos or make users defensive. Work toward a solution that will keep everyone content. I try to do this whenever I see something that could escalate into a serious fight or if a user could possibly be hurt. I try my best to stay impartial in these situations, and I always strive to be kind and de-escalate the tension rather than add to the flames. Beyond that, I always try to be forgiving. It is our mistakes that help us grow as a person, that make us better friends, family members, and people. You wouldn’t be you without the good and the bad, and I wouldn’t be me without my errors.
I would take a step back before I post anything and think “is this biased in any way?” and then revise it. If I get invested in an argument, I would take a breath, step back, and read everything again and make sure I’m unbiased.
I don’t want anyone to get hurt. I will do my best to compromise and make sure both parties get what they want.
My mother is a partner at a major law firm, and I have grown up learning by her example. I also plan to be a lawyer, and that means I have to be completely unbiased in all arguments. I used to be on my camp debate team, and I will try to not engage in possibly biased arguments, but if I need to, I will do my very best
I would always make sure to see points from both sides and not only listen to my friends, but everyone. I always want both sides to present me information before I make a decision.
I will be sure to look at both side before I say anything. I will make sure to state kindly that they should break it up and if many people are going agaisnt one person, I will tell them not to gang up people.
I would make sure my head is clear and enter with an open mind. I would read through the posts and see if there are any biases present. If there are I would revise the argument and try a compromise between the parties.
I would listen carefully to each side in the argument and make sure that what I said would not make me seem biased or supportive of a particular side. I would try to calm the argument down and always stay fair.
I would take time to think about both sides of the story. If there does seem to be someone specific who is in the wrong I would explain it to them calmly and politely and ask them to stop whatever it is they might be doing that is bothering others. However, if no one in particular seems to be in the wrong I would, again , look at both sides of the story and explain to them how they both can find a compromise or solution/apology they would be happy with. I think the most important part of all this is to not get worked up yourself because that could just add to the tension and continue the fighting.
I tend to not look at usernames when I’m trying to deal with an argument, but if I do know, I’m sure to remind myself that just because I’m good friends with a user doesn’t mean they’re right. If they’re a friend that would be mad at me for not taking their side, they’re not a real friend.
I have had experience with this previously when I was a Peer Mediator in primary school. I’ve been trained how to handle difficult situations like disagreements and conflicts. I was taught to resolve them by making sure I got everyone’s POV and then supporting them to help them achieve an agreement or compromise. When handling situations, you must always make sure that you don’t take sides, no matter what your friendship with that person is like or force any decisions and help them work it out in a way that benefits everyone. To stay unbiased, focus on the bigger picture. What is really happening in this situation?
I would listen to what everyone has to say and then come to an agreement. I won’t take any sides and I will make sure to be fair.
I would think about what both sides of the argument are talking about. I would listen carefully to what both sides have to say, and see the similarities and differences between each one. I would try to remain calm and not let my emotions get to my head. People are naturally biased, and to remain unbiased in an argument I would put myself in each of the people’s shoes, so to speak, so I would try to understand what each person is going through, and why they are arguing this point of view. I would try to make a compromise, and have an open mind, being open to all suggestions, and not just vetoeing everything.
It’s nearly impossible to be unbiased, regardless of whether you know the people involved or not. What I find for me is that, to remain unbiased, I have to take a step back, and view everyone as I would if they were strangers. Get rid of all of our history for the moment, and give everyone an equal say.
We all have to recognize that no human is completely unbiased in situations of conflict. That said, I will do my best to listen to every aspect of the argument and form my own opinions based on the facts of the “case”. I will work to reach a compromise if possible, but I also realize that in some situations, the best strategy is to let go and move on before more parties get hurt. When dealing with arguments, it’s important that you don’t enter into a brewing fight on your own. I will always make sure to consult a second opinion before posting my own thoughts. I will work with all parties to reach a consensus and, at the end of the day, move forward.
I would try to look before I leap, so to speak — it’s important not to say anything that could make the situation worse, so I would really think about what I’m going to say before I say it. if it could potentially come across as biased in any way, I would rethink what I have to say and re-word it so as not to upset anyone.
Yes, many! I want to help this community improve as much as I can, and I think one of the best ways to do that is by helping to build new friendships and create a stronger bond between all users, Old and New alike. At the beginning of September, I hosted a program called the Friendship Program, which paired newbies and oldies together in order to help them make new friends and get to know others better. I want to revamp this program, better than ever, and host it once more for all users. I know firsthand how intimidating older users can be; hopefully this will be the way to break some of the tension and show that they’re just human too!
Another idea I have is a Woman Empowerment course. Now, more than ever, it is time to learn about amazing women across history who have changed our world for the better. By understanding more about these women and gaining new knowledge, we can all strive to become better people and maybe even create some new role models along the way!
I do! I plan to start a pride club and a photography club! I also agree that we need to bridge the gap between old and new users, but everyone is also thinking that so I would leave that to them and help if I’m needed. Instead I would focus on listening to ideas from people who are not in the council and using my power to put them to action!
I would start as many ways to get the newbies included as possible! Weekly sleepovers, truth or dare games, writing contests, etc.
Well, I talked to a lot of people, and they want more clubs and places to talk! I would love to help everyone get their idea through and collaborate for more events on the site!
Several, many of of them include integrating site members. I want to connect site members and include everyone in everything possible. Bringing back site rps is a dream, so starting something and attempt to bring them back. I also want to bring back the food fights, site parties, and maybe we could even create some new traditions. Basically anything to connect people.
I have a few plans, but I would first ask the community if they like them and would participate in them. I would like to hear the ideas of everyone before I commit to starting a club or roleplay.
I’m really interested in doing more to connect newbies and oldies. A particular thing I was thinking about which is inspired by the Old and New Unite Party is that when someone new joins the site (if they want) they can be paired with an older buddy and maybe time to time there can be buddy activities. There are many more ideas currently in the works as well.
I have lots of ideas! I think we should get the Friendship Program back up and running, but my big thing is to start some weekly events. Weekly food-ights, RP-fights, and parties. I think I’d also make sure that we had a safe place for talk therapy that would generally be Spoe free or those who aren’t allowed to use hangout or Discord.
Yes, I do. This community means a lot to me and I always want it to be the best that it can be so that everyone can have the same incredible experience I had. I would help revive many of the clubs that were made such as the Art Club as well as introducing more. I would work with the other members to form an idea to bring everyone closer together. I want to bring back food fights with hundreds of comments and on site RPs because that’s a way I made a lot of my friends here.
I want to help the community on here connect even more than we already have, so I would like to be a part of the Old and New Unite party. I also want to come up with more ideas to help everyone get to know each other, even if they just joined the site, or they’ve been on here since the site started. I think it would help us get into less fights, and the site and Council would be more peaceful.
I have no specific ones- I’m hoping to leave that up to the others. However, I want to be able to solidify community relations, regardless of whether or not Open Chat comes back. That would involve creating and improving clubs and groups for people to chat on. Weekly, bi-weekly… when the Golden Age was happening, there were a lot of clubs and competitions that brought everyone closer together. I’m hoping to bring those back.
Yes, if I was elected I would do my best to make this site as fun as possible. I would host parties, food fights, RPs and clubs. I would always make sure everyone is included and make sure everyone has a lot of fun.
In terms of plans for the site, I have a few ideas. One specific idea is that I really want to revamp the newspaper and yearbook teams to be an ongoing organization. It’s really important to keep everyone up to date with news and events coming up/going on, and with Open Chat currently down, most of these clubs have fallen out of use. This would be a good opportunity for a lot more users to get involved, young and old alike. It would also give the League an opportunity to connect with more users because part of its job would be running these teams. Overall, the success of the League will depend on connectivity and collaboration – both of which I plan to encourage if these ideas are implemented. In terms of plans for myself, I will continue to co-run the Poet Gang with Leila and help out whoever I can on the site with things like arguments, editing, planning, or just talking. I want to use this opportunity to grow as an individual to better myself and the people around me.
I’ve been on the site for a little over a year. I’ve been friends with old, new, and in between. I am a bridge between two worlds, connecting two groups that don’t interact as much as many on both sides would like. To become a better community, we need to unite Old and New. I will help be the bridge between both worlds, whether or not I am elected.
I’ve dealt with many issues over the years. I know what words helped me, what made me feel better, more comfortable in my own skin. I know how to help others in the same way because of my experiences. I’m an incredibly empathetic person. When someone is feeling sad or upset etc, I do everything I can to try and talk to them and help them and support them through their tough time. I’ve had experience running support groups before, being a leader, helping out the community. Many times in the past I’ve supported struggling issues like self-harm, suicidal thoughts, anxiety, questioning your sexuality, and more. I’ve run events in the past (like crystal week), so I can be depended upon to be super committed, on top of everything, helping out all across the site. I’m a team player. I know how important it is to collaborate and work with others, and since the panel is made up of many people, that will be a handy skill. I’ve worked many times with others, organizing events, contests, elections, etc, so I know how to be a part of a team. I also know the struggles that can come with that, and can therefore address them accordingly. I want to work with all of you to make this site a better place, regardless of whether or not I am elected.
I’m a peacemaker. To have a balanced and strong council, you need people with many ideas, organized people, etc. but you also need peacemakers to keep everything in order. I would be that peacekeeper because I am very unbiased and try my best not to take sides. I’m also good at making compermises.
Well, I think I have the experience and inexperience of being on the site. I know how things work here, and I know how to do certain things like the older users, having made my account in 2015. However, I was off a lot. I’m still as inexperienced as some of the newer users, and I can teach and be taught something!
I can be a voice for both the newbies, oldies, Evers, and Nevers. I’m not and Oldie but I’m not a newbie so I can see where both sides are coming at. I spent my first year on the site as an Ever but thanks to Cats I am now a Never so I can use my experiance from both to help settle arguements.
My personality, who I am. We are share similarities and differences but who I am is separate from everyone else and to add onto that, I have seen the site goes through many eras and that makes me one of the older candidates and able to teach the newbies and help them. Overall the experiences I’ve had make me different than everyone else.
I’m a second year ever and though I am an oldie and have experienced my fair share of things on the site I also feel as though I am in some respects still a newbie since I wasn’t very active after first joining the site. I don’t know if this is something other candidates feel as well but I feel as though I can see through the perspective of a newbie and an oldie and help bridge that gap and represent everyone.
Well, like Cove, I’m newer and friends with older users. However, some of my closest friends are newbies. I think I’d be willing to start newbie classes, teaching them the basics of writing, and how to Food-fight and RP fight.
I’m a chaotic neutral.
While I do listen to others, I listen to myself as well:)
I will not standby others without giving an honest opinion of my own. That is t to say that I don’t like working with others—I love working with others!
I’ve been on the site for almost three years now. I have the experience needed to improve this place and I’m willing to help everyone as much as I possibly can. We’re not two different worlds, we’re one big community with one common interest and that’s what’s so amazing. I am enthusiastic and a huge fan of the series and I want to help make this a better place. I’m very active on the site now, and I would appreciate it a lot if I get in because I like changing things for the better. I am an ENFP. A campaigner, and ready to made a difference.
I’d like to think of myself as someone who doesn’t really put in a lot of ideas, but instead listens to them, and thinks of the pros and cons of each one. If I were to be on the Council, I would like to be the person who goes through ideas, or something like that. I might not be the best at writing, but I think that analyzing is one of my strengths. I also like decorating stuff, and I’m a bit of a peacemaker, and trying to resolve fights.
I believe that I have more leadership experience than most of the other candidates. Between the student council, teachers, TbT planning, CoT planning, and the fact I was a two time SM, I’ve been leading on here for a while. Though that may not make me the best candidate, I certainly have experience in areas others do not. I love reaching out to people. Sharing problems and walking each other through them is something that, while might not come completely natural to me, I’ve certainly gotten better at.
I can always make sure everyone has a lot of fun. My personality type is ESFP which is an entertainer. I love seeing people be happy so I can always make sure everyone is content.
I’m a third year Ever who joined the site in 2017, and I’ve made friends with many older users and new ones as well. I’ve been here since the golden age, which gives me the experience to deal with crises and help run the site body with the League. One of my mottos is to always choose kind; My grandmother always reminds me that if you want to look back and have little regret in your life, you must be kind. My passion is to help and support people, and my heart is big and open to everyone. I am good at staying calm during arguments, but I am also very loyal to my friends. Loyalty doesn’t mean I will always defend them, it means I will always voice my opinions to help them see when they’ve overstepped or assist them when they’ve been wronged. I have a high emotional intelligence, and I am a good listener. These gifts are a crucial part of me, and they define me. I am stubborn to a fault, but it comes in handy during stressful situations. I do not go with the crowd if I believe the opposite, and I will not be pushed into following someone else out of fear or self-doubt. My ultimate goal is to reach out and bring more people into this family, and I will maintain that if I am elected.
Can you please take me off the tag list? I’m tired of getting these notifs
I think a good leader is able to see all sides and angles of a story, allowing them to draw an accurate conclusion. They also are empathetic.
I am on every single day. My screen time on my phone says I’m on docs and the site 5 hours on average everyday, and then I spend like three hours more on my computer. I have been on every single day since I joined the site
I’m on every day! And as of right now, I don’t get that many notifs, not to mention I like having a clear inbox, so I always check each notif
I am on this site every single day. Although I don’t come on the SGE site, I regularly check the Open Chat doc and all my roleplays at least 5 times a day for as long as an hour or so.
I come on almost every day, sometimes for twenty minutes, sometimes for hours on end. If I’m not on the site, you can find me on the SGE server on Discord.
I’m on daily! On the discord, the ocd, and the site. Plus I check my email frequently so if anyone contacts me I’ll be there.
I’m on every single day as much as I can without getting overwhelmed by work and screens. I go on Google Docs a lot, to check up on roleplays that I’m in, Discord, Hangouts, and I also come on the site at least once a day to clear my notifications. When I first joined the site, I was barely active at all, just scrolling around. But once I learned that the community on here is so great, I decided to start coming on more, and now I come on every day!
Daily, on docs, discord, the site, and hangouts. Seriously, you can basically find me on from like 10 am to 3 am XD
Every day! I always check the site and clear my notifs, check discord, check hangouts, and check all the docs 🙂
I’m confident that I’ve tried my best, (trying not to overdo my campaigning at the same time), and I think that whatever happens will happen!
I have faith that the site members will pick the people best suited for the job, and if they don’t pick me, I’d be perfectly fine with it 🙂
I just want what’s best for the site
But I am confident that I will get at least a few votes.
To speak the truth, I’m not at all that confident for it. I’m not exactly a confident person, I just tend to stay in the shadows most of the time. I’m excited for the election sure, but I honestly don’t think that I’m going to get in, not with all the amazing people I’m competing against.
I’m confident that no matter what, the Council will have a great set of people who will be there to help the site!!! I’m not sure about getting on the council myself; it’s hard to tell when you’re not actually in other peoples heads XD. Plus I have a tendency to doubt myself in situations like this. But I’m excited regardless of what happens!!
I’m confident that everyone will vote correctly for a council that will speak for the people and be just! I do hope I get in, it would be fun working with others and meeting others, and I would love to help around the site. I’m confident I’m trying my best to be a good nominatee for the council, though I’m not really confident in general. I can’t wait to see who gets in, however!
Like Yami said I’m confident that I’ve tried my best. I’ve tried really hard to get to know and interact with a lot of people that I haven’t met before because of the break I took (I guess you could call it a break lol). Even if I don’t get elected, I met a lot of people and worked really hard and I’m happy about that!
I feel like I’ve done everything I can. If people want me in, they’ll vote for me. If not, they won’t. I can’t do more, so I’ve made my peace with that.
Honestly speaking, I am also not very confident in the election. I don’t have too much self-confidence, but I am confident that the right and the best people will be chosen for the council, and all I hope is that I am part of those people. I am, however, confident in my abilities and that I have and will try my best to get into the council.
Honestly I’m holding my head high and trusting the people. Whatever I say comes from the heart and I believe whoever is one the council deserves it, whether or not I’m on. I don’t know if I’ll get picked but that’s okay. Whatever happens I’m happy.
as the others have said, I’m confident that I’ve done my best. while I can’t guarantee I will be elected, I’m happy with what I’ve done.
All I can do is try my best to be myself, clearly state my beliefs, and show that I deserve a spot in the League. It’s all up to the SGE family, so whoever is the best suited for the positions shall be elected. I’m so honored to be running alongside of fellow users who are qualified, kind, and smart. At the end of the day, I tried my best, and that’s all I can ask for.
I’m confident that I’ve put a lot of effort in and I trust the decisions that the rest of the site will make. Whoever they vote for deserves to be part of it, whether or whether or not I’m voted. I’m happy as long as everyone else is happy! <3
I think that there’s always more I can do but am confident that I am being truthful and working my hardest and if members of the site like what I’ve shared then I’ll be honored but I am very confident they’ll pick candidates they think to be best for the job and I am confident that who they pick will be great. I honestly am not 100% sure how many votes Ill get, if any at all but I’m hopeful that people will appreciate what I have to offer.
Name one quality you like about yourself and 1 quality you dislike
One quality about myself that I like is my loyalty. If you’re my friend, or even acquaintance, I’ll be there for you, support you, and protect you no matter what. Ill stand by you even when things get grim, and help you even if I’m falling apart myself. I believe this is a really important quality to have in a friend and a leader.
One of the qualities I dislike about myself is my perfectionism. This feeds into my anxiety quite a bit. If I get a bad grade, miss a shot in basketball, little things like that, I get really down on myself for not being perfect. This also causes a lot of intrusive thoughts about being a loser and a failure which is never fun under any circumstances. I definitely wish I could be more laid back at times.
One quality I like about myself is that I’m a peacemaker and I’m empathetic. I’ll always be there for you and I try my best to minimalize the amount of drama. I think that’s what would make me a good addition to the council. (I guess that’s 2 qualities but they’re kinda linked lol. Sorry!)
One thing I dislike about myself is that I’m shy and sometimes it’s hard for me to be super direct. When someone comes up with an idea I don’t agree with, sometimes it’s hard for me to say “I don’t agree”. I’ll usually just say “Ooh cool, but here’s another idea…” but I wish I could be more direct. I’m definetely going to work on that!
On Site: I love my ability to handle multiple projects at once.
However, I don’t like how I sometimes take a little longer to post things like fanfics, seeking sanity, and event posts. This is why it’s be easier and way better to work together with council members (if I’m elected) to post things on time!
irl: I like how I am motivated and I strive to accomplish my goals.
I don’t like it when I end up putting too much effort and then getting burnt out and needing to take a break.
One quality that I like about myself is my determination (undertale!!!). When I set my mind to something, I will do it. No matter if it takes just five minutes to complete, or two hours.
A quality I don’t like about myself is me doubting myself. You might not see much of this on the site, but I doubt myself a lot, and my actions, and what if instead of doing this I could’ve done that and it would’ve been better, or that I’ll never be good enough for people.
One thing I like about myself is my ability to understand people. If someone comes to me with a problem, I can understand what they’re worried about and where they’re coming from. It also lets me help them in any ways possible.
I dislike my arrogance. I tend towards it a lot of the time, and while it’s something which is fixable, I hate it. It means I can sound selfish or bigheaded when I’m just trying to talk.
I love how helpful I am, I love to help people whether or not it’s on the site or irl. I will always be there to lend a hand even if I don’t know you very well. The quality I dislike about myself is I tend to have doubts about my abilities and have a hard time taking a leap. I’ve gotten a lot better at talking to new people and getting to know them so that’s great (being on the Council would help with expanding on both those skills). Regardless I will try no matter what.
I think one quality I like about myself is probably my reliability! I am usually always there for anyone, no matter who they are if they need it. I always try to respond to notify, always try to help people out, and always try to he active and be there for you if you need it! One quality I don’t like about myself is probably how sometimes I’m a bit too nice. I don’t like contradicting my friends, or telling people I don’t like their idea or if their idea is wrong. I’m working on it, though, and have gotten a lot better and saying my opinions!
One quality I like about myself would be my devotion. If I set a goal for myself, I will not stop until I reach it (unless it’s impossible, then I can’t). I don’t give up easily, and stay focused while I’m performing the task.
A quality that I dislike about myself is that I am self critical. I constantly put myself down in real life, and I honestly don’t think that I am good enough for anyone. Its a bit of generic thing, my grandmother did it a lot in her teen years, and so did my mum. If it is genetics, I hope I can break this and be more confident in myself and in my actions.
one quality I like about myself is that I’m always willing to listen to others. I like helping other people, I’m always happy to help!
however, I dislike the fact that I can be quite blunt. I try to be honest with people, but I tend to say things in a way that can come across as arrogant.
This is hard to answer because I like myself, flaws and all. Do I have annoying traits and bad habits? Yes, but that doesn’t mean I dislike those particular things. They’re a part of me. My favorite trait about myself is my heart. I have a huge heart whose true passion is reaching out to help others. There’s always more room in my heart for friends, love, and compassion. I’m quite empathetic, and while it can sometimes wear me out, I love how I can connect with people. As an introvert, it’s hard for me to spend large amounts of time with lots of people, but I value the small amount I do share all the same. One trait that I wish I could improve upon is my perfectionism. It’s both a blessing and a curse, but I find that it prevents me from moving on with my life because I’m constantly looking back and picking out what I could’ve done better. It also makes it hard to do assignments because I want them to be perfect. Sometimes I wish I could live in the moment instead of thinking about the “could have beens” and “what ifs.” That said, both of these traits have an important role in my life, and I wouldn’t trade them for anything.
I’m quite empathetic and understand people easily whether I’ve been in their situation or not. I’m always there for everyone however much I know them and I am very supportive of my friends. I don’t like how I’m not very independent but this could be useful as it shows I can work as a team.
One quality I like about myself is that I can accept criticism. I find that it’s good to just hear other’s critiques ,especially if they’re constructive, in order to better myself and make sure others are happy as well. One thing I dislike about myself is that I don’t really know how to ask for help. With certain small things like carrying a heavy object I don’t really mind but it’s other bigger things that I have a hard time sharing and asking for help with. I think working in the CoE is something that could help me improve that though since we’ll all need each others help while working together.
