Here is another idea thatgoes with my JC thing. Everyone who registers with EZB to be on this forum starts off as a Padawan. After they make 30 posts, start one topic and are here for at least 2 weeks they become Jedi Knights, that is definate. Jedi Knights have to earn Mastership and be voted in by the JC. So after a Knight makes 75 responses, is here for a month and starts 5 posts it's up to the JC to meet and see if the member deserves to be a master. They consider the quality and quantity of his posts, his loyalty and his SW's insight. He/she also can't get warnings for being rude/profane or horribly off topic. Masters move onto the counsel when after 1-2 months the 6 counsel mainstays vote off 3 of the "in limbo" councilors are and vote on the 3 best Masters. This system of promotios gives power to the best and most loyal members while it keeps people coming and making good SW's comments so that they have a chance to move up.
Enough of that Mr. Appear then dissapear, then change my name 3 times and give my old name to a jerk who was banned. You'll be on the counsel(I'm still spelling it wrong). Just chill and wait to see what your role is.
I think it's funny how everyone's jostling for positions...
The only thing that bothers me about voting members on and off is that down the road when the forum is bigger I could see how it could possibly become a real popularity contest...Maybe if Raz has to give final approval to new council members....I don't know.
