Headmin election 13 - The bakers dozen

The bakers dozen
There are a few theories as to why a baker’s dozen became 13, but the most widely accepted one has to do with avoiding a beating. In medieval England there were laws that related the price of bread to the price of the wheat used to make it. Bakers who were found to be “cheating” their customers by overpricing undersized loaves were subject to strict punishment, including fines or flogging. Even with careful planning it is difficult to ensure that all of your baked goods come out the same size; there may be fluctuations in rising and baking and air content, and many of these bakers didn’t even have scales to weigh their dough. For fear of accidentally coming up short, they would throw in a bit extra to ensure that they wouldn’t end up with a surprise flogging later. In fact, sometimes a baker’s dozen was 14—just to be extra sure.

Perhaps we should add a fourth and fifth headadmin in the same way am I right haha

How the vote works - viewtopic.php?f=38&t=9965

Rules:
1)Only post a candidate thread in this forum if you are planning on running - viewforum.php?f=38
2)You must not be permabanned or blacklisted
3)Do not ask headmins about a particular players conduct, generalise your question, this is not a forum to use the headmin candidates to attack other people
4)If you want to ask every single headmin a question, post your question here - viewforum.php?f=52 - read the rules, this subforum is strict, spamming your question across every candidate thread is a good way to get your question deleted.
5)Low effort posts deleted on candidate request
6)No bribes, or offers/things that could be construed as bribes, you'll get one warning, then you'll be disqualified. This includes coding PR's for votes.
7) Don't advertise on the codebase or abuse it's PR announcer for your own means
8)Do not campaign in the game in an IC fashion, such as Captains Announcements or Stations names etc. Keep it OOC and do not abuse your admin privileges such as global narrates and so forth.
