So wondering how this process is unfolding so far ?
Has any confirmed, membership mosiac been sent out yet ?
I mean there are 4 days left until candidacy closes … how can some one put themselves up if they do not know if they are going to be an official Member ?
I have some other concerns - There where some issues and questions raised around this process by the community, yet no official response from Nem foundation on these questions.
Another concern is that apart from Nelz, I have read no responses on this forum from other council members ?
Which leads me to believe they are not active on the forums, which raises another big concern that they do not care about the online community ? Only concerned about local.
I kinda now understanding better why Jaguar raised some concerns. The Devs seem to respond more than Council Members to the online community. If it was not for a handful of people Alex, Nelz, some others and other Nembers from the community , I guess we would have not idea what is going on…
This then to me, looks like the offline council is serving only their local interests, which is ok, as this should be their focus, but part of their responsibility should be globally as well.
How do you build a diversified online community, if communication is one sided and local interest is only served.
Also so far we have only heard of 5 people running for positions - 2 President candidates (Also going for vice presidency ); 1 Secretary and 2 Council members.
Surely this can not be the only ones ?
Nem was founded in Singapore, surely there would be some candidates form there, how about exciting founding members, are they up for candidacy? If there are, why are they not reaching out to the online community ? My one conclusion would be that the online community do not matter and that votes are being canvassed or arranged from else where ? Surely if other candidates do not even mention themselves online, that means they are confidante enough to obtain a position from voters elsewhere or they might be plainly naive ?
Why do I get the feeling that come 16 Nov, suddenly we will have a both load of candidates, most of whom the online community never has heard from. We will ask them questions and not hear back from them and most of the unknowns will be elected, which means this all would just have been smoke and mirrors ?
Where are the by laws of the foundation regarding the elections process etc. We need to be able to go throught them, understand them and also become familiar with the process to raise a legal objections if the rules are not followed?
Who are the current members overseeing the elections and making sure the rules are followed.
One of the rules should be, due to Nem wanting to be a global organisations and also wanting to mirror the core characterizing of a blockchain, being decentralized and open, all candidates must be active on Nem online public channels, at the least?
Would be interesting to see the demographics breakdown of all official members, I mean if there are 200 and 100 are from Singapore, mmm it is going to be kinda obvious that a majority rule is going to occur here.
This would also make sense why I heard a rumor about a possible fork…
Anyways there are a lot of unknown and uncertainty hanging about and this all is starting to look like a micky mouse setup. I hope I am wrong on this, everyone might just be doing all of this part time and that would explain a lot.
