Dear Forvm Members,

It is time to elect a new committee for the 2014 Website Awards.  The committee needs five members plus one chairperson. Please declare your candidacy by replying to this thread. Below is Pep's write-up from last year describing the positions:

Committee Members receive the "Comitia Curiata" title in their profile but that is not just an honorary title, it is a working one.  Here are the duties of a Standard Committee Member:

- Receive website nominations from the public, review them for appropriate criteria, and forward satisfactory ones to the Committee as a whole
- Consider websites submitted by other Committee Members
- Introduce eligible websites personally found
- Receive website nominations from the public during the Annual Awards
- Consider Operational legislation brought before the Committee
- If thought of, introduce Operational legislation that may help improve the Awards Process
- Vote in the public polls
- Promote the Awards

Candidates and Committee Members will also be bound by the following Rules:

"Committee Member candidates, from the time they declare their candidacies, must also be members of FORVM's Classical Numismatics Discussion BoardMembership on said Discussion Board must be maintained by Committee Members until the end of their service on said Committee."

"Committee Members must not accept or receive any gifts from the business of "FORVM Ancient Coins", especially for their services in the Forvm Website Awards Program, while they are on the Committee or after they declared their candidacies to serve on it.  They may receive compensation, regularly available to all in the general public, for goods and services rendered to FORVM the business or to the resources it provides as well as any free goods and services offered by FORVM the business to the general public.  FORVM Staff are prohibited from serving on the Forvm Website Awards Nomination Committee, except for those temporarily given that title and power for the purpose of uncompensated improvements to the FORVM website."

"Committee Members, from the time they declare their candidacies, must not accept or receive any gifts from members of the Classical Numismatics Discussion Board or owners of websites eligible for a Forvm Website Award, especially for their services in the Forvm Website Awards Program.  All goods and services which are not part of a shopping bonus and have a definable commercial value that are accepted or received from such people must be paid for in said value or exchanged for gifts of similar value (for example, in Holiday observances and coin trading). Footnote"

All Committee Members must also have a Yahoo! account so they can join the Committee's Discussion Group.  If you wish to do so, feel free to campaign positively.

If you want to see the Yahoo! Group and what the Committee is all about in action, here it is:

Thank you for considering joining the Forvm Website Awards Committee,

I am a relative novice, but perhaps that is no bad thing as I end up scouring the internet due to my lack of physical numismatic literature.. If my services can be of use I am willing to partake...

I'm OK with joining the website committee for this year (provided it doesn't impede my own website being up for annual awards!), and I would not mind chairing it, because I have clear ideas about where to go next; I'd be happy to see previously experienced members rejoin too of course.

I'll figure out the yahoo group thing soon.  I'm not sure if I was ever given admin privileges to accept new members.

I'm sorry, Lee.  This is why it isn't good for me to have admin privileges...instead of responding to your post I modified it and yours became mine!

Here is what Lee said:

It seems we have a perfect mix of ( relatively speaking ) Elder statesmen and young upstarts, and enough strong wills to ensure an interesting time!!
  It has been quite a while since I have looked forward to anything quite so much!!

 Thumbs Up Grin Thumbs Up

  I have applied to join the yahoo group ... But no answer as yet.. I presume I will be informed once a definite decision is made?

  Best wishes to all fellow volunteers !!

Lee.

Martin's confirmed his membership of the group. That's a considerable relief, since I'm finding it impossible to access the site properly!

I have sent an Awards Committee admin message to all committee members via the related Yahoo group. I'd be grateful if each of this years committee members could respond as requested in that message (to the Yahoo group, not to me alone). THIS message is in case any committee members have yet to join or be confirmed in the Yahoo group  - if you have not, please send a PM immediately to Robert Brenchley and myself. Sorry for bothering everyone else with this admin message, I'd have done it via a PM but PMs can only be sent to 3 or fewer members.

Just to make the point clear again, can anyone replying to this message please send a PM to Robert Brenchley AND to me. I have no permissions yet on the Yahoo group so I cant do anything about membership. Robert's forum address for PMs is
Robert_Brenchley
(note the underline between the two names)

at the moment we are struggling to establish a way to communicate between committee members, so its essential each member applies to join the Yahoo group

Can you both please PM Robert, and get the yahoo group address. Then you must apply to join the group with a valid Yahoo email address. We cannot invite you to join. You must apply.
thanks
