Presidential Election: We need your input

Hello FanBoxers!

It's been a while since I've posted -- as it has been important that I step aside from the spotlight to make room for the President you elected, Brian Woosley.

I did miss speaking with everyone, however! :)

If you remember, we decided that the first Presidential term would be 6 months -- to allow our new democracy to learn to crawl before it learns to walk.

(Very short term, I know. The next President's term should be 1 year, in my opinion, and then we can increase terms even further from there, if everything is going well).

Well, Brian has been President for exactly 4 months now -- which means his term is coming to an end in only 2 months.

 This means that it is time for a new election -- as our charter calls for Presidents not being able to be reelected -- so that they can spend the entirety of their terms working for the members, instead of working on their reelection.

Question:  Would you like to extend Brian's term by 6 months -- so that his term is one full year?

Or would you rather hold a new election, and elect a new President?

I guess the question really boils down to whether or not you feel he's doing a good job for you; or whether you think someone else will do a better job.

We need your feedback, because if you want a new election, we'll need to start the process for that very soon.

Please leave your thoughts, below.

And if you would rather communicate confidentially, feel free to send me an email.

Thanks in advance. 


And the winner of the Presidential Election is...

The elections are over, and the FanBox community and company has itself a new President.

Congratulations to the winner Brian Woosley!

Here is Brian's acceptance video:



And congratulations to Manuela Alexuc, the runner-up.

She ran a clean campaign, and the FanBox employees were very impressed with her when they had the chance to meet her a few weeks ago.

Here is her message to you:



Brian's term starts on September 23.  

I am sure he will do a great job at representing all FanBoxers, as he sets out to improve FanBox.

Please join me in congratulating Brian and wishing him good luck!
