And if any candidates, or anyone else, have questions about PTS from a moderation/rules standpoint, please U2U me.

PTS is often forgotten about by the majority of the ATS membership, if you were elected PTS council person how would you increase the number of people taking part on PTS?

I'd like to second that


Plus, I'd like to know how each of you would go about setting aside your own political biases (we all have them
) to be able to represent all PTS members and their beliefs fairly and equally.

Thank you UK Wizard and djohnsto77, for answering those questions both of them are topics I feel strongly on and I hope I will be able to answer those questions for you.

This is to me, one of the most important issues for PTS. To me, we need to increase participation in the forums so we are able to move away from the partisan politics which have taken hold. Unfortunately, many people moved away from PTS when it became a Liberal V Conservative mudslinging pit and this only caused more damage for us. This caused a large spiral for PTS which I feel the moderators managed to stamp out with their ‘zero tolerance’ policy. [Although some aspects I openly disagreed with.]

I also identified two things on my campaign thread which I wish to have done in my time, the first is a reorganisation of the forum and sub-forums in the larger forums to help with organisation as well as having threads moved into the right place. I feel as though the ‘Weaponry’ forum gets too many threads which should be placed in ‘Military & Security Issues’ and this causes an unfortunate amount of problems. If the threads are there, people will post on them but far too often they are in the wrong place.

Secondly, I wish to see more content based posts, from our own members. Instead of posts on ‘What you think of Socialism’, I want to see a mirror of ATSNN for interviews of political party members or important figures. I feel as though this will be a way to go for PTS and for the whole site. It’ll increase onsite and offsite visibility for the site which will be good and it is possible, Infinite and Valhall have showed us that these interviews can be achieved and massive offsite recognition of ATS can be found. We need to take advantage of this on PTS or we will forever be the crippled brother of ATS.

I have other ideas, but I don't wish to drone on too much.

This’ll be no problem for me. With what I do for a job, since I work part-time for a law firm and have to be able to remove my own views from a case otherwise I would never get to keep my job. Their have been instances where I have had to help defend people who are rapists, who you can tell and know that they are guilty yet to you have to remove yourself from the situation and do your best for them as it is your job.

Representing a majority argument on PTS will be a walk in the park compared to that, in essence it’ll be the same thing. No matter how much I disagree with a view point, if it is what the people [majority of] want than it is my job to put their ideas forward and implement change for PTS that’ll result in a better forum for us all. In the end, no matter who I like or agree with if PTS gets better it helps me.

I hope that helps you both and I was able to answer your questions, take care.
