I hope everyone had a fun and exciting Canada Day! I know I did. (What, you didn't celebrate Canada Day?! But it's one of the Dolphin's favourite holidays...)
Now that the fireworks and celebrations are over, it's time now to give careful thought to who you think should be the next president. Or make a spur-of-the-moment decision while you're still slightly buzzed from the leftover Canada Day alcohol. Either way, head over the Election Ship to let us know who you want to nominate as president!Submitted by Daniel Lerner on 2 July 2016 - 8:03pm.

The next STF Presidential Election will be kicking off in 2 weeks!

I was approached by Krys about organizing events for STF's 25th Anniversary and have agreed. :)
There is a basic idea I'm working on and it will work best if I have a few people to work on it with me. In particular, there will be an 'Open House' in IRC one day during the week of celebrations. I can't be on all day, as will be the case with most people, but if you can spare an hour or two to host a section and/run an event, please let me know. (more details and dates will be forthcoming)Submitted by Lindsay Bayes on 19 June 2016 - 5:04pm.
The EGO election voting results are in, and Joe P. has been elected for a two year term, starting on July 1, 2016.
Congratulations, Joe! And thanks to Jen for her hard work these past two years on EGO.
A full breakdown of the results can be found in Command.
Voting is now open to pick the next member of EGO for a two-year term starting on July 1, 2016. The poll can be found here: http://www.star-fleet.com/webb/node/766956.
Voting is only open to active members who hold the member rank of Fleet Captain or higher (don't worry, everyone - there will be an even bigger election coming up next month that everyone can vote in).
NOTE: no campaigning is allowed during the EGO Election in any form.
Good luck to all the candidates!
My apologies for this taking so long to post. It was delayed due to RobJ's resignation and my own move and real life commitments. The final short stories are up for voting! Please refer to this link for instructions:
Candidates are now being accepted for a member to join EGO for a two-year term, currently scheduled to start on July 1, 2016.
