First off, congratulations John and Tim on your nominations!

1) From your "certain point of view", what are the main duties (job description, if you will) of a Rebel Legion Base Commanding Officer? NOTE: I'm not looking for a copy & paste text book answer, just an honest answer in your own words.

2) Please list your top 4 priorities if elected BCO.

Thanx, gentlemen!

This question is for both candidates:

One of the things about the elections that has bothered me every year was the "suprise element" of who the XO would be after the elections.

Real world election lets you know before you vote who will be the Vice President, so in the interest of knowing who or what we can expect if you are elected:

Who is going to serve as your XO if you are elected?

Most of the event requests we get are through the 501st. What are ideas to promote the RL?

Obviously the Rebel Legion is not the only fan group out there.

As a member of both the RL and my local FanForce chapter, I am concerned about how Echo Base will treat other fan groups in regards to event planning and event participation, seeing what has happened with previous Base COs and XOs.

How do you see Echo Base working with other groups?

These questions are for Tim:

You mentioned creating a few new positions if elected, in particular a Base Publlic Relations Officer (BPRO) which seems like a good idea. In the past, I feel these areas have been handled by people who have created some concerns.

Who do you feel would be a good candidate to be the "face" of Echo Base?

Who will you have staff this new position?

This is for both John and Tim.

1) Why do you feel you are qualified for the position of Echo Base Commanding Officer?

2) How seriously do you take this hobby of ours? For example, does Star Wars costuming define a large part of who you are -or- do you see it as fun past time that should be enjoyed after real-life responsibilities are handled?

3) Why do you costume? What is your personal passion for this hobby?

Thanx, guys!

Please post questions only if you are in the base, its their responsibility to handle this. Thanks for your cooperation.

To all CO candidates:

What clubs/groups (Star Wars or other similar hobby) do you currently belong to and do you hold any office/rank in them, currently and/or in the past?

What clubs/groups (Star Wars or other similar hobby) have you belonged to in the past (and are no longer member of) and did you hold any office/rank in them? If any former clubs/groups, why did you leave them?

Have you ever had to step down or been removed from a clubs/groups and/or office/rank, and if so why?

I'd like to ask both John and Tim:

Echo Base is a challenging territory to command. Aside from the freezing living quarters and constant wampa threat, there is also the issue of the significant difference in population density between the western and eastern halves of the base (e.g. 1000/sq. mile in NJ vs. 70/sq. mi. here in Western PA.) Throw in the sheer size of the base (110,000 square miles all together) and you end up with a situation where people only troop events close to home because they (understandably) don't want to drive twelve hours round-trip for a three-hour troop. I know I constantly pass on troops that I'd love to attend because I can't justify the time on the road, and I'm sure people in the eastern end feel the same way. So here (at long last) is my question:Can you either equip us all with snowspeeders to eliminate time on the roads or (failing that), how do you plan to address the challenges of making more troops accessible to more members on both sides of the Base?

(No really--I'm serious about the snowspeeder thing...)

Candidates, do you feel the current model of a large Base with Regional Captains, and members attending event within the Base, as they can, is working?
Or do you feel need to peruse possibility of breaking the Base into smaller sections?

And if the Base is broken up, do you feel there are actually enough Active members in distinct areas to warrant it?

Do you think that members would have any motivation to travel to events outside the Base (if it is broken into smaller Units) since there is no longer any motivation of "oh hardly anyone is signing up, I will troop this to help the Base" (when Base is NY, NJ, PA, DE).

...As of right now, I feel that the base if broken up into small bases can function but only in a pair: example PA/DE and NY/NJ; if the base divides individually only the state of New York and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania will be able to function as bases, New Jersey would be an Outpost, Delaware would be either absorbed into PA...

Tim,

The RL Charter does not allow for intentional Outpost formation from territory with an existing Base, only from the "Outer Rim" territories. Bases can only split off to full Bases, not a Base(s) + Outpost(s).

Charter wrote:
Any member residing in a territory not covered by an existing Unit will be considered member of The Outer Rim. If 5 or more members live in distinctive region of the Outer Rim, an Outpost can be formed.

Charter wrote:
A Base must have at least 15 members. An Outpost must have at least 5 members. If a region within an existing base is splitting off to form its own base, there must be at least 15 members left in the old base. Forum Users do not count as members.

The only way an new Outpost can happen outside of the Outer Rim, is for an existing Base to go over one year with less than 15 members and be bumped down to Outpost. Is this not clear in the Charter? If not, this might be a good thing to add to the next round of Charter updates.

Congrats to both candidates for their nominations!

My questions:

1. The RL is about more than just dressing up and going to conventions to party and hang out with like-minded folks, cool as that is! How many non-convention/charity/benefit troops have you done over the past year? (Looking at your involvement in the club.)

2. As a leader, you have the responsibility to put your people first. This includes recruitment of new members and bringing them into our family. The answer to this question would require you speaking for your choice of XO as well, since they are your personal choice – what have you done over the past year to bring new members into the RL? What have you done to make new members of the base or group feel welcome or get them involved?

Thank you!
Mark

This is for both candidates. What are any major plans or ideas that you may implement within our base in the coming year? Thank you.
