OK, so first things first, this is not a dissolution of the ASB. What I'm trying to do with this thread is transfer more power to the community in a way that will still respect the spirit of the game and keep the community focus. I really want more time to enjoy the great product we've worked out, and I can only do that through delegation. My chief concern over the last few months has been in getting the game up and running with a solid core. The game is now too developed and diverse to only have one autocratic head, so this thread will be devoted to sowing up loose ends. Authorities I will retain: Major Data Systems (Stats, STAB, Moves, CAP Data, etc.) hotfixes and implementation. Staffing and General Moderation duties. Rules Clarification, Enforcement, and Dispute Resolution. Final Approval on significant changes related to any of the above. Authorities this topic will be dedicated to delegating out: Mechanism regarding control over new RP Approvals Mechanism for structuring and maintaining the Gym League Mechanism for finishing up the CAP Revamp Project General Mechanisms for greater game autonomy (who can write SotGs, what changes need approval or not, etc.) I already have a few ideas for taking care of these responsibilities. Effectively I'm looking for volunteers on each of the first three items in the delegation list, to deputize them permanently and make arrangements for the forum to be less centered on my authority. These people will be given authority to maintain those aspects of the forum / finish those projects.
