    Wiki was a circle jerk when it started ngl, but it's become more than that. There's plenty of useful information on there. It's perfectly fine for people to not give a toss about it, but it should also be made available for those that would be interested in viewing it or adding to it.

    So, I just signed into the email account I get notifications about it on, almost every single notification is about one of 3 pages. But let's ignore than and press "random page" a few dozen times and look what we get: circle jerking, some more circle jerking, and a load of pages that basically tell you nothing or even less than the equivalent on site source.

    Petros has been working hard to expand the wiki but it is still a work in progress. If members like you stopped being so cynical about it, it would be completed a lot quicker. :rolleyes:

    Contrary to what Nigel thinks, we don't need someone special or a massive personality behind the role of Speaker. It is fundamentally an administrative role with the opportunity to make changes the speaker and the rest of the house feels necessary. The house needs a strong but stable candidate with experience but also freshness, and that is exactly what I am.

    I agree with you here, although what would happen to your party?

    As Jammy said all candidates should be able to read the thread without the need for tagging.
    To all candidates running, can you honestly answer why you actually want the speakership? Not reasons that apply to the house in general, but why you specifically want to do it?
    And to Petros, may I ask which people you have in mind for the running of liberal leader if you are in fact elected?Good luck to all candidates.

    I don't quite follow, are you saying that if we were less cynical of obviously failed vanity projects you would somehow be able to work harder to big yourself up?

    I see.

    I was there for perhaps three days but then I wrote something for a manifesto which was edited (very poorly I might add) without my permission. I left instantly. :hand:

    It's neither failed nor is it a vanity project. What I'm saying is that the only way it will get finished quicker is if people like you help out with it instead of moaning about it.

    The answer I should give is I want to be the Speaker that contributes something new, energetic, exciting, and entertaining to a game I care about, however, I would be lying if I said it has nothing to do with boosting my big ego which causes me to see myself as an MHoC superstar: ego is a small part of my reason for wanting to be Speaker.

    I like it in general. I also think there are a number of positive things about their MHoC, but I prefer ours. I am pretty biased though :lol:

    Pages are gradually being updated

    You only get emails for the pages you've edited yourself

    Because I believe I am the best person for the job. As simple as that.

    I think there are several people that could potentially win a leadership contest if I won the speakership, but I'm not going to say just in case I lose this election

    Why would I help on something useless?

    It is a vanity project, that's clear to tell from the pages which do have stuff on, mostly it's a few core members saying "look at everything I've done, I'm so great and important" while leaving other pages as about 6 words without even putting the effort in to have the basic infobox.

    We're slowly adding info boxes to every page. It takes a lot of work to go through every persons MHoC history, especially when it's just a small handful of us (like 3 or 4 of us).
