Should Admins vote?

Post by Xen » Sat Jul 06, 2013 4:52 am

Since this has gone from a judging panel to the masses voting, should admins be allowed as well? I personally don't feel comfortable voting, but I don't want to deprive Kratok and Scotchyn of their "right". Thoughts?

I would see no reason why they shouldn't.

I would think everyone on the forum should have a vote. I mean if we can't trust the admin to be honest about this than how can we trust them with our deepest, darkest, intimate...er, ooops, wrong forum. LOL

If you know you can remain impartial, sure, vote !

Vote.

I'll ask them to PM me with their votes then. However, I won't be voting. It's not a question of remaining impartial. I just don't like the idea that my vote(s) could deprive someone of a top 3 place. Things are pretty tight as it is. The results will be announced on Monday.

Absolutely should admins be allowed to vote. They are members of the community as well.

Of course they should vote. As already stated, they are also part of the community. :)
