The What Would RevMen Do? Party has as its main goal to promote the continued success and ensure the smooth running of Brickfilms.com. We recognize that the reason and the purpose of this current restructuring is not to promote “democracy” nor is it a result of any particular weakness of the present structuring; the purpose of this restructuring — indeed, of this very election — is to relieve RevMen of some of those duties and responsibilities by delegating them to trusted members who are able to make decisions without placing undo burden upon Brickfilms’ top administrator.

The WWRD Party acknowledges the fact that the viability of Brickfilms is directly connected to the continued aegis of RevMen and promotes the candidacy of those who would endeavor to implement his vision for the future. Candidates who receive the endorsement of the WWRD Party will be expected to demonstrate the ability to make decisions on their own while having those decisions reflect an understanding of RevMen’s principles of open-mindedness, tolerance, freedom, and playfulness yet still exhibiting a focus on conservative growth and a single-mindedness with regard to the stated objectives of Brickfilms.com (i.e., to promote and support those engaged in the art of bricfilming).

WWRD Party candidates will not endeavor to represent the “will of the people” beyond the extent that will coincides with the “will of RevMen” (which historically has proven to be a great extent). We allow that the institution of Ministers is toward the goal of easing the burden upon our esteemed RevMen in administering our growing empire and are accepting of the fact that all site administration matters are best framed from the standpoint of “what would RevMen do?”

Candidates who wish to be considered for endorsement by the WWRD Party or to nominate another for consideration should post in this thread (note: endorsement from the WWRD Party does not preclude a nominee from being a candidate for any other party).

Candidates for the Ministerial positions for which elections are being held:

Minister of Community Projects – In charge of potential and ongoing community projects.

  • Lechnology[/*]

Minister of Discussion – In charge of the forums and the chat.

Minister of Film Rating – In charge of setting standards for and encouraging the rating of films in our directory

  • Schlockading[/*]

.

Minister of Film Contests – In charge of coordinating official Brickfilms contests.

  • Richard Frost[/*]

This post will be edited to reflect any changes in candidacy for those positions.

EDIT: Lechnology is the current spokesperson for the WWRD Party.

You bring to light an important distinction and I have updated the initial post to reflect this. Your nomination for Minister of Community Projects has been accepted (with myself providing the second to the motion) but, as you pointed out, any appointment is purely speculative at this juncture (as would be the positions of Minister of Discussion and Minister of Film Rating).

I would like to join this party. It seems to be the most logically thought out and rational.

Touché. Which is why I would like to be considered for this party as well. Saulgoode is a very informed person in my opinion. I would especially want to be a nominee for the minister of film ratings, since I have several good ideas for an overhaul of the system that I’m sure would closely follow the WWRD initiatives.

I hate to be the killjoy but all this brickfilm politics has not really left me convinced.

However this does seem the most sensible proposal, The aim of this politics business is to distribute the time and effort into running the site across more people. Increasing productivity. This party unlike others doesn’t seem to have lost site of that.

Correct me if I am wrong, but will there not be disputes on “Revs Aim”. its not an easily defined “thing”. Isn’t there a weakness of definition on purpose? It seems to go against the aim of the introduction of brickfilm politics, if we are constantly looking to rev to see hat he would do, and more so engaging in discussion amongst ourselves in Revmens aim.

I’m not saying that this is a bad or unworkable idea at all; I am just interested on what will be referenced as Revs aim, if disputes of certain things come about.

Disputes arise in any discussion of plans for the future and this party welcomes discussion on such plans. Lechnology, in the initial response to this thread, provided a fine example how such issues can be resolved by citing past precedent of RevMen weighing in on a discussion and thereby providing evidence in support of his contention. Is such methodology perfect? I would agree with you if you stated it was not. But it does provide a more sound basis for judgment than looking to the examples set by various national governments or appealing to mob infatuation with a cult of personality.

If you believe that RevMen has authorized this exercise in “brickfilms politics” because he is dissatisfied with the status quo and is looking for a new direction in which to take Brickfilms, by all means support another party. If you feel that this election is a method to elicit those who are best able to support him in carrying forth along the lines of the estabished tradition and mores of the site, perhaps the WWRD party is for you.

Since we only have a couple weeks left until the election, I am going to second Mindgame’s offer; but we can still have others apply for the position (my reservation is not that MG is unqualified, merely that I don’t wish to impose my will upon the members).

I thank you Saulgoode for seconding the nomination and I thank the WWRD Party for supporting me in becoming Minister of Community Projects.

Lechnology, off to run his current project.

I know that this comment is directed at TPSFALP, because I know that it is your opinion of our character. That is unfortunate, and it’s a misconception. We certainly don’t seek supporters based on personality, and we’ve made our position clear. It is misleading to characterize us with such a statement, and I think you owe more to the people of this site.

It’s very true that RevMen has done an excellent job, and any serious deviation from his course would no doubt be a folly. It is unreasonable to assume that other groups plan to make radical changes. That being said, we should not close our minds, and refuse to use our personal creativity and perspectives to make incremental improvements. Why should we be simply satisfied with the status quo? Why can we not continue to make progress? Forcing the community to follow one man’s path (regardless of the success it’s had) does not mean that there aren’t certain areas we can improve on — but if we’re forced to follow only that path, we may never be willing to make, or look at, those changes.
