I will be happy to answer your question. Again, I stepped down as a mod here at ATS to pursue other interests. You seem to think that ATS mod and ATS
regent would be a similar thing. In fact, it is not. The ATS regent has no real power, it is ceremonial. The ATS regent would be a ceremonial advocate
for the people.
I stepped down as a mod and am now running for ATS regent, because I feel I can better serve this community in that position. On the side of the
people, advocating for the people and supporting the people, rather than being a rule enforcer who has little actual interaction with the community,
other than to take action against a rule violation.
I can better serve the ATS community as the Regent of ATS and that is what I intend to do
A true Regent would never step down from their appointed duties.
A true Regent knows where he/she is needed. I am needed in this position and am the best suited for it. I am the best candidate to act as an advocate
for the people. I have the most experience and as I have shown time and again, I know the ins and outs of ATS.
A true ATS Regent would never lie about where they stand and would never post knowingly false information in a weak and failed attempt to discredit
their opponents. Need I also point out that you haven't exactly been respectful of the rules as laid out by the author of this thread?
For some one who claims to act in the name of the people...You don't seem to have a habit of...Doing as the people ask...You're apparently not even
willing to answer the people's questions...And the one thing you finally did tell us, as far as where you stand, had to be dragged out of you, by
multiple members wanting to know your answer. Is that the kind of behavior that you think the people really want?
Because you don't really seem to be acting in anyones
interest. I stand here and I dare to say, the ATS community wants an honest Regent with
Ladies and gentleman, you will have that with me. As you have seen not only in my 4 and a half year tenure here on ATS, but also in this thread, I
have been honest, accurate, unbiased and civil.
That will never change with me, ladies and gentleman.
