Welcome to the kickoff of CAP 7! This is the thread for people to announce their desire to be the Topic Leader for the upcoming creation project. Do not suggest other people. If someone doesn't strongly desire to be a Topic Leader without provocation, then we don't need them signing up for the job. Topic Leader is not an honorary title. It requires a lot of work and attention. If you are not prepared to fulfill all the responsibilities, then do not throw your hat in the ring. To avoid some confusion we had last time -- Topic Leader nominees will automatically be considered nominees for the CAP 7 Policy Committee, after the Topic Leader vote is complete. See the Policy Committee Nomination thread for more information regarding the the Policy Committee. This thread is strictly for candidacy posts, and posts supporting those candidates. Please stay on topic. Here are the guidelines for posting in this thread: Candidates must have been actively involved through the entire duration of the most recent CAP project (CAP 6 - Arghonaut). Involvement in multiple CAP projects is strongly preferred. Do not suggest other people. If you want you encourage someone else to run, then send them a PM. If you are new to the CAP project, don't bother signing up to be a Topic Leader. Lurk more. Include a summary of your involvement in the CAP project. Make a pitch for why you should be selected. If you can't present and defend yourself, then how can you expect to lead a project whose primary function is discussion and debate? Convince us that you are a good choice. Poor spelling, punctuation, and grammar are great ways to look like an uneducated idiot. It's not a great way to look like a thoughtful, intelligent, community leader. Even if you don't think you are better-qualified than certain other candidates, you still should consider posting a candidacy. Candidates not selected as the TL for this project, will be on the "watch list" by the community for next time. Don't post your name if you don't intend to be active in the project, even if you are not selected. Like I said, if you post here, people will be scrutinizing your involvement more closely in the future. Feel free to post support for any candidates already named. Please do not post disparaging remarks about any candidates. If these rules are not followed by all posters, the offenders will be moderated.
