    What? Again? Yes, again. LegosJedi here to tell you why I’m a good choice for Minister of Filming Resources.

    What experience do I have relating to my desired ministry?
    My HTML skills are amazing, if I do say so myself. I also possess CSS, Javascript, and PHP skills, which will help me bring the Resources page up to date code-wise.

    I have journalistic experience with the English projects I have written. I also have a great writing style, proven through the fan fictions I have written.

    While I myself am not a great brickfilmer, I have some experience with it, and understand both basic and advanced techniques dealing in creating effects, animation, lighting, and more.

    Last, but not least, I am tech-savvy, as I have an interest in computers, and other technical equipment. I understand how a computer works, and the components of a computer, as well as understanding how to do some more advanced actions on a computer.

    What are my ideas to expand or improve the Ministry?
    What I really, REALLY would like to do is to take the resources system and change it into a toned-down version of the films system. Resources can be easily created and modified in a web interface. They will get added to a database, where all resources will be stored. Comments will be able to be posted for resources, adding information to the existing one, correcting the author, or just giving simple thanks for the resource.

    But, that’s what I’d like to do if I was allowed to do, and I’m not quite sure if I will be given permission. If not, then the resources will get an overhaul in the way it looks. Items on the page will be laid out differently. There will be links on the left side for the main categories, and sub links for the resources in those categories. Content will be loaded into the main section via AJAX. Along with that, the resources page will get a change in the actual look. The images will be changed to something more up to date.

    How much time would I be able to spend performing my duties as Minister of Resources?
    I currently have plenty of time to work on the Resources page. School doesn’t bog me down much, and apart from bowling on Tuesday and Thursday, I have nothing else in my schedule.

    What unique character qualities would I be able to contribute to the Ministry?
    With my PHP knowledge, I can modify the Resources page in a new way, adding PHP into the code, and not just HTML, thus, making it more dynamic. Along with that, I have good JavaScript knowledge, so I can make the page dynamic right there in your browser. With my coding knowledge, the possibilities are endless!

    I am very much open to all your suggestions, comments, and questions. Thanks for your time, and happy voting!

    Sounds like you’d have assistants add to the resource page as well, am I reading that right?

    I’m not sure I get what you’re asking, Lech. Are you referring to something like the review panel, to moderate new resources? Or do you mean that only a select few people will be able to add resources?

    The whole purpose of the comment system is where users, meaning every one who has a brickfilms.com account, can post a little blurb of text where they can add tips relating to the article, correct the author if they made a mistake about information, or they see a typo or something, or to just give some thanks for some one writing about that resource.

    I’m kinda against a review panel, because, like I said, I want to keep this as a toned down version of the film directory. However, resources will be able to be deleted or edited by the Minister of Filming Resources to prevent spam or cruddy resources.

    I’m also against the idea of having a small, select group of people be the only ones who can add resources. This would limit the amount of resources that could be added. However, there might be a few restrictions. For example, a user might have to have a certain number of posts, or be registered for a certain amount of time, before they can post a resource. I’m not saying that I would do this. I’m just giving an example.

    Lech, I hope this answers your question. If not, please let me know, and I’ll try to answer it properly.

    You have a very well-formed platform, here. I’d love to see it get some more attention, hopefully before ballots open next week you can get some more questions and interest in your campaign.

    Good luck!

    Well, thanks Trill! I’m glad you like it! Do you have any questions yourself, or any suggestions? I’d be glad to hear about them.
