[i][b][big]For a Future Together [/big][/b][/i]

If you actually read this add the codeword potato to your vote
Debate answers:
How often will you release activity checks?

Probably about once a month, more frequently if people seem to be inactive

What will you do if I become inactive (this question is important because of the fate of the USS)?

Ask the person with the first post by someone else to change it to a link to a new (temporary) front page until you are re-active

How strict will you be on members?

I won’t be too strict but I will make sure people follow the laws

What will be your first law to propose as president?
To get all members of SPA keep their partnership list updated.

How much will you notify people on their profile for?

I will notify people on their profile if they don’t respond to activity checks. Because Scratch sometimes doesn’t keep people updated I will not be too harsh.

Why should people vote for you?
I have had experience and I will let Everyone have a say because everyone is equal!


How active will you be, and what will you use that active time for?

I will be on most days, I will not spend all of my time on SPA, but I will go on frequently.

How have you helped the SPA in the past?

Because I only recently discovered SPA, I haven’t helped SPA in the past. I hope that people will give me a chance to help SPA in the future
If you could describe the SPA in less than 100 words to somebody who owned a shop what would you say (please actually write it)?

A friendly community, a way to get a shop noticed and a proper organisation. It is run by a great scratcher, just like all the great shops and scratchers involved. It is full of variety.

What do you like about the SPA?

It is a friendly community; everyone helps each other out.

What experience do you have in roles like this?

I have represented my year at school twice; one time, before I started Scratch, I had been voted in over about half my class.
Is this the last question?

I hope so, otherwise some of it has become invisible![/quote]

[quote]
President: python_megapixel
[img]http://i.cubeupload.com/ot9YR6.png[/img]
Deputy: @muellly
Secretary: @PumpkinSpiced
I am python_megapixel, and I would like to explain my values and plans for this election. Me, my deputy and my secretary all have experience in shop ownership. When I reviewed the shops of my Deputy and Secretary, both received extremely close to full marks.

First of all is the most important point. I believe that the SPA should be totally inclusive. I believe that the only way newer Scratchers can get a foothold in the community is if they can participate in the same things that everyone else can. That means no restrictions on countries, ranks, number of posts, number of followers or anything else. The only restriction that would be needed is whether they have a shop that meets the speed and quality requirements. And since we already provide free reviews, it would be easy for them to get to this stage.

But it's not just keeping our existing values. I also plan to introduce an advertising network where Scratchers can elect to show ads in their forum signature in return for benefits, for example, feedback on their projects. Another plan is profile comment notifications (yes, I'll be keeping my profile comments open) for important things, so members can get the information they need, more quickly. And I'll respond to questions via comments too.

I also aim to keep the SPA active by inviting new shops to join regularly and organizing collaborations between shops, enriching what member shops can offer and presenting the SPA as an active, open organisation.

I hope I have persuaded you to consider voting for me in the upcoming election.

[big]Anything worthwhile is possible
[b]Vote python_megapixel[/b][/big]
[/green]
Debate answers:
[b]How often will you release activity checks?[/b]
I feel that it is important not to put anyone under too much pressure, which means not constantly bombarding people with activity checks. Every 2-3 days I will use the forum post timestamps to check if orders are being responded to in a timely manner. If not, I will post an activity check on the shop's forum thread. General activity checks for all members will be released randomly via profile comments at intervals of 1-3 weeks.


[b]What will you do if I become inactive (this question is important because of the fate of the USS)?[/b]
I would do my best to find a co-president to help with the process of inviting shops and managing the SPA. In the meantime I would keep operating the SPA to the best of my ability including inviting new shops and enforcing laws. Although during the transition period it would be less active than usual, I would not allow the project to be completely abandoned.

[b]How strict will you be on members?[/b]
I will be as strict as is needed to keep the SPA organised. Nobody would be kicked out of the SPA for their first violation of the Laws (especially if they didn't know the law existed), although they would recieve a warning on their profile. However, for time-limited things, such as referendums, punctuality would be expected, as it's not practical to hold up the entire SPA to wait for a latecomer to vote.


[b]What will be your first law to propose as president?[/b]
I would propose that shops must survey their recent customers at least every 6 months and report their findings to the SPA. This would be a useful statistic for the SPA to have in order to check that shops are performing well.

I have devised a voting system for representatives of shops to vote whereby every representative gets a unique voter number. They make their decision and fill in an online form, an example of which I have made [url=https://1drv.ms/xs/s!AqunG9fqwtSfgwItsCIHXhwv5G2i?wdFormId=%7BF7B732C9%2D2EBB%2D409E%2DA107%2D0E4E2E0FAAC4%7D]here[/url].

[b]How much will you notify people on their profile for?[/b]
As forum posts can become cluttered, I would notify people on their profile for anything likely to affect them. For example, if they are running for an election, I would notify them of deadline for their speeches and logos, but I would not give them overdue warnings for other people. I would also notify people for any collaborations that are organised for all shops. People will of course be permitted to opt out of profile notifications if they wish.

[b]Why should people vote for you?[/b]
It is in my interest to make the SPA an organisation that is easy to be part of but that also delivers many great benenfits. For example, I would like to expand advertising opportunites for the SPA and organise further collaborations between member shops. Additionally, for me, equality and inclusivity are paramount in any situation, including on the internet, so there will be no restrictions except service quality of shops for new Scratchers to join. [u] Another exciting prospect is a 'fit and forget' partnerships list where a single file is updated every time a shop joins, meaning you don't have to worry about updating the partnerships list.[/u]

[b]How active will you be, and what will you use that active time for?[/b]
Around 2 hours/day of actually doing stuff on Scratch. Managing the SPA & my shop as well as coding new projects.
Around 2 hours/day of doing other stuff with the messages window open responding to urgent messages.

[b]How have you helped the SPA in the past?[/b]
I have offered to review all members as part of the SPA membership benefits, which will go on to improve the quality of applications. I am also helping the SPA get more members by offering membership for free with shop review orders.

[b]If you could describe the SPA in less than 100 words to somebody who owned a shop what would you say (please actually write it)?[/b]
The Shop Partnership Association (SPA) is an organisation which shops which provide a quality, fast service can join in return for many great benefits, including feedback and partnerships with other great shops.


[b]What do you like about the SPA?[/b]
I like the way that it helps shops to grow and that it takes into account smaller shops as well as the larger ones, helping the Scratch community to thrive and grow.


[b]What experience do you have in roles like this?[/b]
On Scratch I run the Shop Review Shop which was invited to the SPA because it was fast and efficient. In the real world I have led groups including a school council and multiple projects representing my school.

Usually when I am running large projects I try to keep them very organised. For example, for the SPA I have a spreadsheet showing the status of every active order.

[b]Is this the last question?[/b]
It seems to be, but it doesn't eliminate the possibility of further questions being asked closer to election day.

Vote on section 9.1:
[img]http://u.cubeupload.com/rabbitcarrots/808B8DD3F41B45098DB0.png[/img]
[big][b]This law has been officially accepted and will be effective immediately. It will be archived on Saturday to make way for a vote on 9.2.[/b][/big]
We are currently voting on section 9.1, 9.1.1 and 9.1.1.1, proposed by first president poppybunny.
Here is the proposal:
[quote]9.1 People in new jobs will be able to vote.
9:1.1 If a person is in multiple new jobs then they will still only get one vote.
9.1.1.1 If a person is in one or more new jobs and is a shop representative and/or a judge then they get a vote for each of the shop/s they are a representative of and one vote for all of their new job/s. [/quote]
So basically (please correct me if I’m wrong) people with jobs will get one extra vote however if they have multiple jobs they will still only get the 1 extra vote. E.g. I’m a rep of 3 shops, so if I got a job I would have 4. However, if I had 5 jobs I would still only get 4 votes. If I became I rep of another shop that number would become 5. For any further clarification ask poppybunny.

While poppybunny took an early lead python_megpixel has caught up.

See the official election post (above this post) for a detailed insight.[/quote]

[small]I feel like I’m in a commercial newspaper :D[/small]. According to the latest results unless people change votes GrahamSH and python_megapixel have been ruled out. Currently ncro2005 looks like defeating the polls and taking a lead by a few votes, although 5 votes are remaining so it is still not out of the question that poppybunny wins. Expect a thriller over the next 24 hours, when the last few votes will be made. [/quote]

May 8th Newsboard archive

quote][big][b]++wWLaw Section 10 auto-implemented by hellounicorns2Ww++[/b][/big]
Section 10 of the constitution has been automatically implemented by the claim ‘It is vital for the SPA’s future’. It includes the new New Shop Nurturing Program (NSNP). If a person wishes to make a Shop but needs help/support and wants to accelerate faster with better ideas and promotion, then they can use one of the ideas listed (the shop banners from the ideas are watermarked). They are then given an awesome description, smaller watermark and a full OP, which they can then use (almost) freely. They are then kept as half-owned by the SPA until they reach a Shop Review Shop score of 18+. They will be given a chance to get above 18 every week. Once they reach 18 they are given one last week with us as half-owners until they become 100% owners, the watermarks are completely removed and they are left with the sole position of ‘SPA Shop Member’, so basically a normal shop. For a more re formal explanation go [url=https://scratch.mit.edu/discuss/post/3020036/]here[/url]! So far we have had 2 person join this, and they have taken Coastal Reviews and The Oasis Shop respectively.[/quote]

Our old laws before they were reformed on the 19 May 2019.
[img]http://u.cubeupload.com/rabbitcarrots/DD96375C55DE4AB685B1.png[/img]
Laws being voted on are in [i]italics[/i], meaning they do not apply yet. Titles are always in [b]bold[/b] and [i]italics[/i], however, that does not mean they are being voted on

1.3: You can vote in all elections
1.3.1: You can vote multiple times if you are a representative of multiple shops

2.4: You can be fired at any time
2.4.1: You must convey any disappointment due to losing positions in a dignified manner

2.6.2: If you don’t respond within a month your position will be declared vacant

I’m interested, but I think not hiring may hurt your chances. I think you should start to hire so that you can broaden your range. Anyways, I’m going to order something because 1) I want to get something for my friend and 2) I want to test order so I know how fast you are.
