    Yes. I was wondering if you might consider any of the following events newsworthy enough to report on their developments (announcements, updates, or results):

    • IDEA Logo Contest[/*]
    • Steinerei Festival & Film Contest[/*]
    • Nadine & Charlie Music Video Contest[/*]
    • The TTC Contest[/*]
    • FreeLUG Summer Meet festival (FreeLUG Rencontre Estivale)[/*]
    • IDEA Contest[/*]
    • The Nerd Parade Music Video Contest[/*]
    • The LEGO Star Wars Movie-making Contest[/*]

    I think I’d rather just vote for someone willing to do the work involved.

    Hmmm… I guess this sounds alright. Perhaps you could have a few experienced deputies in addition to letting everyone send you stuff. I also think it would be nice if you posted an update if some new film came out that was killer awesome and everyone needed to go see right then. As of now, the news being posted seems too stiff, and it often doesn’t get put up right on time. Most members, I think, already know about it by the time it gets posted on the front page.

    I will most certainly be searching for news on my own as well. I wouldn’t be a very good minister if I didn’t. I plan on having lots of frequent news. Does anyone have any questions as far as what the news I’ll put up is?

    You don’t have to appoint deputies this is an interesting approach to have input from everyone but will you still search for news or will you just rely on the communities input?

    Well, right now, we have a system where the minister appoints deputies. These people would help him/her by telling the minister about important news. The thing I wish to change, is to give every member the right to send me things they deem important, and then I (the minister) would look at all the suggestions, and post the most useful, need to know, important ones. This way, I get much more news, and the community gets to see what their fellow members think they need to know. This will also stop me from having to pick favorites 😛 . In other words, everyone can be a deputy, without asking.

    I’m still a little fuzzy about how the current system works, with deputies and all that. Perhaps you could explain it a little better so I understand exactly what you’re planning to change.

    Friends and fellow brickfilmers, I would like to say that I am running for Minister of Information. I have many ideas that could greatly benefit this community’s news system. Like say, updating it on a regular basis. I scan brickfilms everyday, almost always more than once, and make an attempt to see every topic posted. Also, I would like to change the current system, by allowing anyone to PM me news they feel is important, rather than appointing deputies. I would then sort through the messages, and decide which news would best benefit our community. Now, you may be thinking, “If you update so often, isn’t most of the news going to be pointless junk?”. No way. I will make certain that anything put on our news page is something you, the people want to hear about.
    As for the grammar portion of this job, I believe you should find my skills more than acceptable.
    I also plan to update the featured film every week, so you can see more of the best brickfilms around.
    To conclude, I Squash am running for Minister of Information. It you support what I have previously said, then please, vote for me.
    Any questions or comments?
