I sent a message checking he'll accept me as patron first :P

Greetings prospective citizens, I feel like being patronising so you are welcome to offer your sword, bow, axe or pointy stick in fealty to the great house of Wibulnubniblia. Obviously I can't let any old (or young) scraglehead into my service so there will be tests of some kind. Terrible, grueling, costly tests.

Wibulnubiblia doesn't need you, but you might need it!

I am closed for patronage. I'm a horrible grumpy old man, who smells like mothballs and vomit.

Ask Pentagathus to patronise you, I hear that guys awesome.

Most effective elected official. Ever. (not counting Jubal)

He is Jubal the modder, Jubal the wayfarer, Jubal the admin. And he has come to me now, at the turning of the tide.

Greetings, citizens of Exilian!

I would like to apply for citizenship.

1. Why I would like to be a citizen
I have enjoyed participating in the forum over the last month; I hope and expect to continue to do so. As a reasonably active member, I would like to have the opportunity to take part in discussions and decisions on matters affecting Exilian.

2. What I think I can offer
As indicated in my Welcome thread, I'm not a game-player. Instead, I have long experience as an analyst and programmer (including HTML); I have a wide range of interests in science, history, geography and languages; I enjoy reading and talking about SF and fantasy. I have helped in various capacities with SF/fantasy conventions. I have had (and still have) various committee positions for societies in Cambridge, particularly as Treasurer; this includes taking an interest in constitutions and legal matters. In short, I think I have a range of experience and interests that would benefit Exilian.

3. Type of application: direct vote
(I understand that I can ask for a patron later if I wish)

Just a quick follow-up. I assume the vote is now open, and will run for a week or so. If anyone has any questions relating to my citizenship request, please feel free to ask me. I don't know whether PM, this thread or a new thread would be best - moderators?

Took me a bit of scrolling to work out what the basis for that post was, Khan :P

Glaurung: questions by PM are generally fine, though it's rare that anyone has any!

1. Why I would like to be a citizen

I haven't been as active on the forums as I would like to be. That might be a strange way to start an application but I feel that as active as I have been it is nowhere near the level I hope to reach. In an age where forums are on the decline this one strikes me as the kind I miss from the golden years. From what I've been able to ascertain the vague principles behind Exilian as it stands today are ones that align fairly well with my personal motivations.

With the second upcoming Exilicon I feel it is only appropriate that I seek the approval of the community before becoming further involved. I don't wish to be an outsider interfering in your business, however well meaning I may be in my advisory bumbling!

2. What I think I can offer

A great deal of experience in all sorts of different things. During my student days I founded a student society which won Best Society in its second year. I've run a gaming magazine before (Issue 1, Issue 2. N.B. PSP magazines were usually collections of images formatted to the exact screen resolution of the PSP: 480x272. They'd sit as a folder on the device and the shoulder buttons made it easy to flip through the pages), I've admin'd a forum since 2005 (pretty much retired at this point), a video podcast (as part of my student society - 50 episodes), organised a number of events, worked at others (T in the Park, The International Festival of Falconry) in various roles.

That lot should probably have been bullet points. There's also the work I've done on tUGS creating new content for Gorkamorka, collecting old content, sorting out legal issues with regards to copyright wherever possible, and so on. These days I run Fox Box (I have a thread here where you can learn more if you're interested) where I sculpt miniatures and make copies, amongst other things.

I can also do things like video editing (unsurprising, I suppose!), image manipulation, DTP, a bit of coding (mostly PHP and MySQL at the moment but I hope to learn more when I have more time), a bit of server management (Nothing too advanced - I still hate setting up mail servers), and other generalised techy stuff.

3. Type of Application

Direct vote, I suppose. I hope you'll have me.
