As this poll is not an election, and is only endorsed by MT to the extent that they 'might' consider the results, I believe that making two votes for separate candidates is appropriate for the purpose of gauging opinion.
You can't be more wrong TheO,
MT surely declare that they are not obliged by this poll, but they actually are in a way. I can't imagine how they are going to choose a candidate that does not have public support. How are they going to explain it? For instance would it be possible to choose astros or oracle or napoleon (sorry guys)? How would they explain their choice? How could they possibly explain why they totally ignored the community's opinion? So one way or another they are going to seriously consider this poll.
So please cast only one vote because what you are doing is mocking the procedure and you and wogomite are the only people doing this at present.
And to explain my vote, even though i am not obliged to. I believe that most fitted for the job is Nortom. Surely his CV is impressive and he has a vast knowledge of stratego mechanics and rules, but his character might pose several problems. All this war that he has unleashed against certain MT members (ex MT now) shows that he is passionate but ruthless. Also my belief is that he is bossy and and because of that he will not be able to function with other team members. He acts more like a politician and less than a player volunteering for a job (Morx too actually). Finally i don't really understand why he suddenly started all this mess. 6 months ago his presence was anemic but now... what has possibly changed to create such a diversion?
Don Homer on the other hand has not the knowledge or the experience of nortom in stratego issues, but his character is milder and more pleasant. He seems to enjoy the game and he wants to help improve the gaming conditions (at least that is my impression at present). Also i think he has no second accounts which to me is of great importance. So having to choose between these 2 (the others in my opinion are less qualified for various reasons) i go with the character i would like to judge my cases and that is Don Homer.
The above are my personal thoughts and apparently they could be wrong as i don't know the candidates personally. These thoughts are based exclusively on the candidates forum presence and the PM which might have sent me for several topics.
