2. Any member may nominate himself or any other member during this time period. Either publicly state your nomination on this thread, or email or PM me.

3. If a member is nominated, that person must either publicly state on this thread their intention to run for the nominated position, or email or PM me their intention. (My e-mail is gastrainga2001@yahoo.com)

4. A member must have submitted his/her first recording before July 1 2008 in order to qualify as a coordinator. (NOTE: There is no minimum length of membership or activity requirement in order to nominate somebody else).

5. Any editor may be a coordinator. The same person cannot hold regulation, knockout or tournament coordinator positions.

7. I will report the current state of nominations/acceptations/rejections on this thread once a day.

8. If there are no nominations for the Tournament, WCC, Olympiad or Time Trial Coordinator positions, those positions will be treated as "dead" until somebody decides to resurrect them.

Please only accept a nomination if you are committed to fulfilling its responsibilities!

Election voting will begin on December 1, 00:00 GMT and will end on December 10, 23:59 GMT. In addition to electing coordinators, voting will include Editor confidence votes.

See http://marp.retrogames.com/rules/election.htm for general MARP Election Procedures. Note that I've modified the timeline for nominations a bit since I didn't post the call for them on time. The timelines as I've specified in this post are the timelines we will be using for the elections this year.

About Knockout i decline but for the moment i'm not against the nomination about the WCC (with personal format and idea which i could explain later).

The only thing which could be annoying is that from january 1st 2009, my job will change and i'm not sure to have enough time (surely at the beginning of the year).
