This is the thread for people to announce their desire to be on the Policy Committee for the upcoming creation project. Do not suggest other people. The Policy Committee performs the following key functions: Selecting a Topic Leader for the CAP Project Creating Policy Review topics Voting in Policy Review polls The Policy Committee selection process is designed to be very inclusive. This is not a popularity contest. Anyone with an established history of active involvement on the CAP project, that has the desire to serve on this committee -- should be selected. The main purpose of this thread, is to force members to overtly request to be a part of the committee, and be willing to advertise their history of involvement on the CAP project. That's it. Selection to this committee should have nothing to do with whether a person is "liked" or "disliked" -- but you must be "active". All Topic Leader nominees will be automatically nominated for inclusion on the Policy Committee, after the conclusion of the Topic Leader vote. Anyone that is active enough on the CAP project to seek the TL position, is assumed to be active enough to desire a position on the Policy Committee. However, just because the TL nominees are automatically nominated for the Policy Commitee, does not mean they will be automatically selected. See the Process guide sticky for more information about the Policy Committee. This thread is strictly for candidacy posts. Do not post support for the candidates, since this is not a public poll. This is not a discussion topic about the Policy Committee, so please do not ask questions about it here. Here are the rules for Policy Committee candidacy posting: Candidates must have been actively involved through the entire duration of the most recent CAP project (CAP 6). Involvement in multiple CAP projects is preferred. Voting is not "active involvement". Lurking is not "active involvement". You must have a strong track record of making intelligent posts and contributions to the project. Active playtesting on the CAP server is a highly valued contribution to the project. You must have a clear understanding of the CAP process and rules. If you are not familiar with current policy, you cannot expect to participate in changing it. If you are a member of the current Policy Committee -- then you simply need to make a post stating, "I am a member of the current Policy Committee, and I would like to serve on the committee again." It is not necessary for you to re-post your qualifications. If you are not a member of the current Policy Committee -- include a brief summary of your involvement in the CAP project. Include enough summary to remind the moderators of who you are and what you have done here. If you assume the mods are familiar with your work, and they are not -- then it is your fault if you are passed over. Make candidacy posts only. A sure-fire way to prove that you do not understand CAP rules is to go off-topic in this thread.
