cuoco for GM

A forum for the community to suggest new Game Masters. PLEASE READ THE RULES.
Forum rules
1. Each member of the community can make a topic (poll) suggesting another person for a GM. You can't make a poll for yourself.
2. One topic per person, any duplicates will be removed and votes will be lost.
3. Each poll has to be done according to the schema (yes has to be first option and no the second):
"Do you agree for person X to become a GM?"
"Yes."
"No."
You are supposed to allow only one option per user and allow revoting.
You are supposed to pick "run for 0 days".
4. A person suggested has to collect at least 45 votes (or more) for yes, with minimum 75% for yes and maximum 25% for no (3:1 ratio).
5. A person suggested may request closing of the topic.
6. Only posts containing valid pros and cons are allowed in the threads, discussions however are not allowed. For discussions about particular case use Player Talk forums.
7. If a person collects the required votes, assuming there are free positions and no objections are raised, they'll be granted "Junior GM" rights for a certain period.
8. After training and approval from the senior GMs, the team will formally grant full GM rights and team membership.
9. If many persons will gain required voices, voice count will matter.
10. The amount of GMs to pick in certain time line will be determined by the TMW Team (Admins, GMs and developers).
11. Persons rejected due lack of free positions will be put on hold till any position becomes available (according to vote count).
12. If more than a year passes, a new poll must be open to ensure the community is still fine with the nomination.
13. Usual GM choosing criteria and guidelines still apply, persons not meeting those criteria will be rejected and will have their thread closed.
14. Sockpuppeting will be detected and all accounts, including the master's one will be banned forever without warning. There is one vote per person, and a person means a human being not a forum account.
15. If this forum will turn into a flame war cave, people posting here will act unreasonably and will break the rules on massive scale, forum will be closed down. So use it wisely.
16. If you don't know a person suggested, it is better to find out who is s/he and what they do before voting, do not vote "no" just because you don't know someone.
17. State EXACT player name that clearly identify a person (in game or on forums - precise which one it is).
18. After a candidate receives required amount of votes, the poll is closed, a candidate reviewed by the TMW Committee and asked (or not - in case of valid objections) to become a GM.
19. You need to have at least 10 posts to participate in the polls.

I want to thank personally everyone for the kind words and the amazing support.

Thank you so much for creating this poll Jesusalva. I appreciate the time you spent to share it on this forum. You are clearly very knowledgeable about TMW and one of the best assets we actually have (always dev'ing).

All of this years I've seen the game fall and rise several times, but one thing I noticed that kept players coming back was an active GM team, hosting all kinds of events and basically just being there.

I enjoy playing this game and I believe I would be an excelent fit for a GM position.

(PS. I live in Europe and I speak English)

Pingo's work keeps him pretty busy and sadly I'm seeing him online less than before.

I believe that a Event Coordinator could do that too.

Hello=) is facing an everyday life where there's a war in progress and pretty hard censorship. I'm sure you understand.

I don't believe that TMW Legacy will turn into a "police state" like environment as community proved to be pretty nice. I'd say that it could improve resilience against a possible increase of players (more players more botters and offenders too usually).

Let players and TMWT decide if you are fit or not to be a Game Master. I don't know you enough but I want to believe in your good intentions. Being a GM means dealing with problematic players other than spawning monsters when people gets bored too.

I vote YES for cuoco to be a GM.

Don't let us down cuoco! :D

Yes on that. I always enjoyed dealing with cuoco and could only hope it doesn't ruins fun for him and not disintegrates him from players community due to GM requirements to be in their own guild, etc. He also prefers a bit more early timezones compared to mine, he complained on this and... well, this going to improve coverage. Sorry cuoco, its not very best way to fix your complaints on that :) and it comes with some strings attached. But if you want to try that, I'm long to see you around.

cuoco is always helping other players in quests and share his deep knowledge of the game to give useful advice. Overall, he is a very nice guy. I think he would be a great GM.

I really think, that having the actually amount of player playing the gaming rn, that cuoco should be already elected as a GM, He has 34 yes votes, the old (but actual) rules said something about 45, but I don't think it will reach it soon.

In my opinion, even if there was more than 45 votes, the actual amount of yes votes that he already has, will be enough to elect him.
Just a player =D

An internal poll has already begun and an announcement can be expected this week. I'm saying this to address your point and also as a heads up to Cuoco.

Everyone is encouraged to continue voting for now!

Cuoco has passed GM Public Nomination, he'll now be a Junior GM and after training, TMW Team will vote to decide when/if he is ready to become a full GM.
