>Complains about player vote

>Host/Coder Vote exists

SEPARATION IS ABSOLUTE (except the part where we get to pick a headmin every term kek).

I'd argue player vote is the best because (1) the administration serves the players and (2) players are the most impacted by admin behavior and so they have the best idea of which person they'd like running the ship.

The administration actively avoids admins butting into one another's business and so a mostly-afk admin is rarely going to notice if you did a shoddy job with an ahelp or did a poorly run event.

As for the host vote... I respect the coders, but I absolutely do not understand why we need one as a headmin.

Coder vote is no longer a thing.

You're right its host vote, who selects a coder, I don't know how MSO makes his picks but it generally seems to be "insert active coder here who hasn't been headmin yet".

MSO does not usually pick, it is delegated to the headmins on his behalf. They picked Joan and Jordie afaik

So, why not just make it so someone has to be a full admin before they can run for headmin?

this exact logic of removing freedom from the uneducated populace is the same logic that the broken Electoral College was established under. :^)
