    Simple.

    Im not liking all this sniping that is going on lately tbh!
    I did air my grievances. The thread was closed and moved. What kind of community silences the voice of their members?

    The thread was moved to the Admin section or so I was told. You will be able to see everything contained within that thread.

    It wasn't just about that. When that occurred it became the launching point for far more than that. That action though didn't help my overall feelings on things, how things have changed, the general direction things are going, and the overall general feel of this place.

    Explain how there are better ways? In PM's away from all eyes? I brought up my point, and many others in a mature manner within that thread. Just when things get real it is closed off and discarded...

    In a mature matter is the easiest way to get others to follow suite.
    Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everybody you meet.

    Justin, your complaints seem to be very vague and based on skepticism. Lay out all your problems in detail, preferably in its own thread.

    The thread creation has nothing to do with it, and I very much doubt it is you they are afraid of.

    The name has been changed to 'Selected Members Council', due to feedback that the name included improper grammar.

    Just to chime in, as an English native speaker and teacher, I can say that 'select members' is grammatically sound. Maybe some were confused by the fact it is both an adjective and a verb.

    The members were selected (verb), so they were select (adjective) members.

    From what I understand, it is grammatically correct, but not necessarily proper.

    I'll re-open this thread, so others can chime in if they want.

    Sorry, I was reading through and forgot it was closed. I'm not used to seeing a dialog box on closed threads haha. Well, not that it is very important at the end of the day, but 'select' gets Ghost's Grammatical Seal of Approval...so does 'selected'.

    I PM'd Ixion concerning my post. I stated that I could be wrong, it's just that from what I know you generally use 'select' like that for items, not people. I wasn't concerned with seeing it changed anyways.

    The ironic thing now, however, is that because of the community nomination phase now introduced, the definition for 'select' may be applied less strongly here. =P

    Didn't realize this was opened back up. And I mentioned it in the other thread, but this thread is better suited for it. In honor of the Wii U launch, I move we rename it the Super Mario Council

    But yeah, who cares? It's just a name

    By all means, if you guys can come up with something better, go ahead and brainstorm. We just wanted to change the name to something more representative as soon as possible.

    Well since we are going with community involvement I say we have a few nominations followed by a poll. Thoughts?
