Luminesce January 13, 2016 Share January 13, 2016 Pretty much. But I wouldn't hesitate to vote against someone if I really thought they shouldn't be on GAT. Lacquer and Yuki are sometimes coarse or disagree with certain principles (and Lacquer voted against himself), Evil is relatively new, Jean-luc is of course an old member but hardly the most active in typical discussions, and Fall debatably doesn't have tulpas or experiences that line up with the norm here. If any of those things were reason to me to disqualify them from discussing and voting on submissions, I would say so. I'd probably make my reasoning plain enough others would be inclined to agree, too. But none of those are really bad things when it comes to the GAT. In fact I originally nominated Yuki because the GAT needs people like her and Lacquer who can make strong and informed comments, and they've favored people like that in the past. Because even if their opinions aren't agreed with in the end, they spark debate and thought with their this-is-so nature. Evil's a shoo-in with the amount of thought and text he puts into everything he writes, sort of the opposite of me and why I don't want to be in the GAT*. And I have to assume the reason Jean's got so many votes is the same I was about to write, ie he's simply a long-standing member which is becoming more and more valuable these days, as they're the most likely to point out when we're going in the wrong direction. And I greatly value the Fall family in most aspects of this forum simply because of how different they are. We gain nothing from having ten of the same people, or a hundred. I feel they've a lot to contribute in areas the other GAT members may not. Those I didn't mention had no evident problems on the surface to me, which is why I didn't have to praise them to balance it out. So take that as its own compliment. *I know that seems silly, implying that "textwalls" are something I'm bad at. What I meant was however, that I cannot comment on everything. Every single thread on this site I don't reply to is because I felt I had nothing to offer to it, not because I missed it or was busy. And I can't do that if I'm on the GAT - a large amount of guides I simply don't know how to comment on, but it would be my duty to do so. I would be very hit or miss, and that would bug myself if no one else. Hi! I'm Lumi, host of Reisen, Tewi, Flandre and Lucilyn. Everyone deserves to love and be loved. It's human nature. My tulpas and I have a Q&A thread, which was the first (and largest) of its kind. Feel free to ask us stuff. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
