New GAT Voting
Linkzelda makes a great point. Not sure if I'm allowed to vote for anyone, but everyone gets a vote from me if I can.

I think I'm alternately biased and uninformed about the nominees, so I'll hold off on voting, at least for now.

Sands brings up some good points. He and I have had differences in the past, and I'm sure we will continue to, but I think that's a good thing. After all, if the GAT agreed on everything, we might as well have one person doing it. Difference of opinion is vital to a group like this because it allows a wider range of viewpoints to be represented. When Sands was a nominee, I voted for him in spite of our differences, because although I don't always agree with him, I recognize him as knowledgeable and experienced. In that vein, I'd like to ask everyone to try to vote for those you consider competent, not necessarily those you like.

Sands' other concern about me was that I left the community in a hurry the last time I was voted into the GAT. That was because I was afraid that my girlfriend had found me on This is still a risk. At any time I could be discovered, and to avoid that, I'm logging in and posting much less frequently than I used to. This is a concern that I brought up myself when I was nominated, and anyone voting for me should be aware that I might have to leave suddenly, or be kicked out due to inactivity.

I think that, you're going to vote for those you like, you might want to question why you're voting at all. I'm also impressed at Sands' post, he was able to verbalize some things about Quora that I couldn't. I don't think you should consider them all to be the same person, but the point you made about Quora filing complaints on Twi's behalf was a very valid one. However, I feel as though the conclusion you drew from that point was a bit too blunt, and I think it would've been better to say that, if a tulpa/host is so biased by the others in their group that they're incapable of making well-weighted decisions. I think the biggest point here is that she seems to lack the ability to look at things outside of her own perspective, and that is probably something that every GAT should have.

EDIT: Re-read your post, and it seems you were addressing it in the same way as I was suggesting you should. Apologies for misunderstanding.
Quilten, sushi, and Dog get a vote from me. They seem like they know where their towels are at.

I'll also vote for Kronkleberry, but only on the condition he maintains some sort of presence here. He's never around; According to his profile, he hasn't even been online in nearly a year, let alone made a post! Get on that, dude.
I had my nomination rescinded due to home life issues, however those have settled down to a point where I feel comfortable devoting time to the GAT. Voting will be over in a little less than two weeks, and in that time everything should be at a point where I would be able to be on the GAT. If it's not too late, I'd like to nominate myself again. If I need to give reasoning like the first round of nominations, just let me know and I'll edit this post.

Unrelated, a vote for Kronkleberry.

For all those -1 explanations previously mentioned, I basically agree with those points, nothing to add.

Swashy may understand how to enforce rules, but I've not seen him effectively critique any works or otherwise given input that would qualify him for GAT.
Quilten +1 - Phaneron does seem quite young, but the way he handles himself in the posts seems fine. I would have preferred to know more about his tulpa's progress/experiences and see some more actual critique from him though.
sushi +1 - I think he can do the job, but I don't know if he has the time, also at the same time, I really would like to see him spend more time with his tulpa - which should be far more personally valuable to him than always answering other people's questions/threads on the forum!
Dog +1 - I've already seem him critique one guide and seemed mostly fine, even if slightly blunt. Has a sort of troll-ish past, but he seems somewhat changed, so I'm willing to give him a chance.
swashy +1 - he could probably do the job, but again, I'd like to hear about that tulpa progress more and see more actual guide critique.
Kronkleberry +1 - has some really amazing tulpa experiences(if you've read his PR), and has enough experience dealing with the tulpa community (mostly r/tulpas). I think he'd be very good for it, if he wants to put the time into it. Likely has more tulpa experience/progress than 80% of the nominations, which is something I was worried some of nominees may be lacking in.
Joshua +1 - yet another person with really good tulpa development and experiences, coming from r/tulpas part of the community, however much newer to it than Kronkleberry, which may provide a good contrast in viewpoints ("older" or "newer"), if such a thing even exists!

I've been thinking about starting a progress report, but since I've had tuppers for more than a year now, I need to find time to type up a summation of past events. I'm working on the survey/stylometric test with Quilten now, so that should be up soon, if anyone is interested. Thanks for the votes, by the way!
Even though my username is that of my tulpa, Quilten, my name is Phaneron, the host, who does all of the actual posting.
Tulpas: Quilten, Jira
Alright, I added Joshua to the list. He had been nominated before so we'll consider the nomination as from then ( For those who voted "everyone", I haven't pencilled in a vote for Joshua from you but let me know if you want to.
