    Hello everybody,

    Just to let you know that we will be re-running nominations for moderator of the HoC/MUN as no suitable candidates were put forward in the previous round of nominations. Nominations will run from now until next Sunday evening, 3rd July. Please note, we will not be allowing self-nominations, or nominations for the current speaker or secretary general. Please see the Announcement for further details.

    I'm sorry that progress has been slow but hopefully we will be able to appoint a new moderator shortly!

    I'm guessing he's talking about the free legal aid link Aaran shared before.

    Also, I want a Jag E-Type now.

    No self nominations? If you do that, you will limit the amount of nominations you get... and judging by the sound of it, you need all the nominations you can get.

    Anyway Fleur, how goes it?

    We may limit the amount of nominations, but you are incorrect to assume that we need all the nominations we can get :p:

    It goes good thanks, I'm just back from holiday! How about you?

    Why no self-nomination out of interest? Surely it's easier to find a suitable person, if they genuinely want to do it? Just asking

    Edit: Just refreshed and seen Teaaddicts post :P hope your holiday was nice

    I've updated the records for the votes while I've been away. Overall turnout has slipped below 90% which is disappointing. Can MPs make sure that they are reading the HoC Updates that are being sent out and are voting on everything. If you are going to be away, you can get your party leader to arrange a proxy MP for you.
    Maybe we could try targeted PMs - at those that haven't voted when say 24hrs is left. Or put more pressure on party leaders to justify why MPs aren't voting, and if they can't to replace them or risk losing their seat. I know its mentioned in the GD but do we act on it? Also I believe it says four days notice for proxy MPs - maybe we could change this because sometimes you just don't know when you are going to be unavailable until a couple of days before.

    I believe because last time the majority of nominations were self nominations and weren't suitable. I have to apologise because I am playing the role of messenger here; the supermoderator who was overseeing the nominations and decision making process is currently away, so I am covering the organisational aspects of the re-running of nominations but may not be in the best position to answer your specific questions, though I will try my best!

    whoa I asked how the holiday was, not your life story

    Nah, I am glad you enjoyed it... island hopping sounds like a giants version of hop-scotch. At least you enjoyed it, that's the main thing and NO one can deny the need for relaxation.
