    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.

    Very concise Dragoon, I like it! :) It seems very accurate.

    -Trill

    EDIT: I would like to add though, that I have made brickfilms. (None that I’d want to post, because they’re terrible.) And, although I don’t post in the brickfilm-related threads often. I read nearly all of them. :)

    Ministry of Filming Resources

    I’ll use the same criteria, although I would emphasize the first two above the third as far as this Ministry goes (I created several ties in that category so it would not be so heavily weighted).

    Regularity:
    -LegosJedi, having joined early this year, posts on average several times a day and is active in virtually all forums.
    -Gray Scale is a relatively long-time member who experiences occasional lapses in visitation to this site (like any sane, healthy, adult human being)
    -brianfast is has visited the site frequently for over a year (much to the dismay of some of our younger members)
    -MindGame has visited the site for (going on) two years and has posted more frequently than I have (which is a lot)
    -Schlaeps has been a member of the site longer than I have (which means longer than all our other candidates as well), and has been a regular poster throughout that time. He has not made quite the actual magnitude of posts as MG has, however.

    MindGame – 5 points
    Schlaeps – 4 points
    LegosJedi – 3 points
    brianfast – 2 points
    Gray Scale – 1 point

    Aptitude:
    -LegosJedi has competed in THAC and been immersed in the brickfilming process. He would seem to be relatively competent in administering the Filming Resources section. As a young man, his writing is slightly naive, but he apparently has sufficient knowledge of HTML.
    -Gray Scale has apparently vast knowledge of the vicissitudes of making a film, and also is very skilled in animation, special effects, and the filmmaking process in general. He also seems to be more than competent at web design and has good writing abilities.
    -brianfast has created a few films that for the most part dismayed people, at least people like LBJ and prof1515. I haven’t seen any website of his so his skills as far as web design goes are probably pretty unproven.
    -MindGame has created several acclaimed films and is a well-rounded brickfilmer with good HTML abilities.
    -Schlaeps is a decent brickfilmer with high aptitude for web design, etc.

    Gray Scale – 5 points
    MindGame – 4 points
    Schlaeps – 3 points
    LegosJedi – 2 points
    brianfast – 1 point

    Demeanor:
    -LegosJedi has the demeanor of your average 14 year old, or whatever. He’s an OK kid.
    -Gray Scale is an amusing and talented brickfilmer that everyone likes. He would be quite welcome running a site function.
    -brianfast is a good fellow that everyone hates. The site wouldn’t be the same without him, but I’m not sure that we need him running any site fuctions (not that I personally would really mind)
    -MindGame is a pretty respected site member.
    -Schlaeps is a cool-headed and respectable site member.

    Gray Scale – 5 points
    MindGame – 4 points
    Schlaeps – 4 points
    LegosJedi – 3 points
    brianfast – 3 points

    Totals
    MindGame – 13 points
    Gray Scale – 11 points
    Schlaeps – 11 points
    LegosJedi – 8 points
    brianfast – 6 points

    I think this is a pretty fair assessment, although I would bump Schlaeps up in the Aptitude category. His work on the podcast project has been pretty impressive.

    Very true. If it’s any consolation, I usually realize that they’re not funny, if not as I’m writing them, at least in retrospect. 😉

    I usually give myself the same defense. Still, don’t be too quick to bow down to Rainsford’s sense of humor! :)

    I very surprised Schlaeps is as low as he is

    HE’S NOT LOW, HE’S TIED FOR SECOND PLACE, IN A VERY SIMPLIFIED ANALYSIS AT THAT.
