2006: Election Guide

Let's rate our Ministry of Information and Ministry of Filming Resources candidates based on 3 important factors (regularity, aptitude, and demeanor (since politics IS about personality)), starting with Information. We will rank the candidates in each section, and using reverse point system we will then create a tally to determine the best candidate.

Regularity:
-Smeagol Studios has experienced occasional hiatuses, but has been a regular visitor of the site for a good while now.
-Trillspots has been an off-and-on visitor of the site for several years now, although certainly not as active as some users. Her regularity is pretty comparable to Smeagol's.
-KG is a leading poster in the forum and is active on the site almost every day.

KG - 3 points
Trillspots - 2 points
Smeagol - 2 points

Aptitude:
-Smeagol Studios clearly possesses enough competence to post news articles on the front page, and as a brickfilmer could clearly find things of interest.
-Trillspots clearly possesses enough competence to post news articles on the front page, but as a devotee of mainly the community forum has a dubious amount of interest in brickfilming affairs.
-KG clearly possesses enough competence to post news articles on the front page and is a champion of finding information on the internet. His writing style may put some off.

Smeagol - 3 points (total: 5)
KG - 2 points (total: 5)
Trillspots - 1 points (total: 3)

Demeanor:
-Smeagol Studios possesses a professional demeanor, and is a cool-headed and intelligent member of the forum with decent writing abilities. He has a tendency to make unfunny jokes but his sense of humour is otherwise subtle and suitable for the main page.
-Trillspots is a generally well-liked member of the forum with decent writing abilities and a distinct, personal style (which could be a benefit or a flaw depending on how personal you want the front page news)
-KG is a generally admired forum member with a sense of humour that to some would be quite welcome on the front page, but to others off-putting.

Smeagol - 3 points
KG - 2 points
Trillspots - 2 points

Totals
Smeagol - 8 points
KG - 7 points
Trillspots - 5 points

I'll continue with the Ministry of Filming Resources later.
