01:44 pm - MJD - CC officer?
Apparently, someone cast a vote for me to become an officer on ADF's Clergy Council. I got a vote for Clergy Council Registrar.

I don't know who wrote me in, though I'd like to take a moment to thank them for their confidence in me.

Now, I'd like to take a moment and look at the amusement that I, ADF's newest Dedicant Priest, currently feel at having gotten a write-in vote for CC Registrar.

For those un-aware, the CC has a set of officers who decide on clergy credentials. They don't do much else.

The registrar basically just keeps the roster of Clergy Council members up to date, something I imagine I could probably manage.

But the real source of my amusement comes not from being the newest Dedicant Priest on the block, or the fact that it's a write-in vote, or that I have no idea who wrote me in. It comes from the fact that the last time I was written in for a Registrar position, I won.

Yes, I once won the election for the Magician's Guild Registrar because I was the only person anyone voted for, apparently, and I was a write in. The funny thing was, I didn't notice for over a week, because I wasn't even reading mail on that list, and no one bothered to tell me I'd won with a personal email. Then, once I found out that I'd won (via an archive search for a post I'd made years ago), I had to tell the Guild Chief that I wasn't eligible to run (or win) because I wasn't a member of the Magician's Guild.

I suppose that at least this time I was at least eligible to run for the position, but I'm still amused at the situation.

Well, I think you will be quite good at, personally.

I might, but I have a lot of hats already: I don't really need any more. But I appreciate the vote of confidence.

Well, it's a wise man who knows his limits...or something like that ;-)

I'm thinking the *real* job on the CC is the preceptor... but then I have a bit of an inside edge on that. It's at least as onerous a job as the archdruid (or CC chief, as the case may be), but without the expense account. :p

Kudos on the write-in. (If we really wanted to know who cast it, we could probably figure it out, y'know.)

Oh, no question, the Preceptor of the CC has the most difficult job there. We never did get around to forming Ian a posse, did we?

We could figure out who voted for me. It'd be a simple matter of elimination, I imagine. But I have avoided doing that because if they didn't post to the list, there might have been a reason that they didn't want to be noticed.

I'm happy to smile, say "thanks" in my LJ, and leave it at that :)

Who wrote you in?

I'm sure it was Eris both times. ;-)

Can you decline a write-in vote as you would a nomination?

I would imagine so. If you couldn't, you'd end up with people winning who don't want to serve. And that would be bad.

I don't know. Sometimes the ones that don't want to serve do the best job, and the ones that want to serve are the ones with questionable motives.

To summarize...

I think I've heard something like that before....
To summarize: it is a well-known fact that those people who most want to rule people are, ipso facto, those least suited to do it.
To summarize the summary: anyone capable of getting themselves made President should by no means be allowed to do the job.
To summarize the summary of the summary: people are a problem.
