Thank you juiceme and t-b. I accept the nomination.

Being technical sometimes helps but I'm not convinced that the council must be technical. Please don't let that be the reason for turning down the nomination. I know some of those you've suggested have previously declined nominations as they say that their time is better spent on technical stuff. Maybe mine too but I decided to accept the nomination as I have some ideas which I hope can benefit the community as a whole. I will post my candidate declaration soon™.

Hey all,

as pichlo (whereas not being a member of the current council) I need to tell that I would not be a good part of council for this time.
Which does not mean I am off but ...
(thanks for being mentioned)

Nevertheless I have absolute no objections against a longer council term.
I had already proposed earlier to prolong the term to, let's say 9-12 months, instead of "only" 6 months.
These 6 months run very fast and we need also stabilty in 'these times of dusk'. (--edit: sorry!)

And for council it also takes away time to prepare/work the election.
Please share your thoughts

I am fine with the suggestions from wicket and t-b.
And thank you for mention my name, however I would like to spend my time for so to say technical support.

I think I am really the wrong person for politics and organization and cannot fulfill this important position. Also I have to many other construction areas in my life which I need to get sorted first.

Indeed, the Council position does not require deep technical knowledge and is very well suitable for people who can dedicate few hours per week for community tasks.

Some technical knowledge is required from some council members but definitely not from all; that means mainly working with databases when setting up elections and maintaining upload/access rights to Maemo repositories.

Don't nominate me please. I don't have time join.

Hey, why don't you run for President of TMO?

I could however be in a council only responsible for the off topic section if that was requested. That's the part of TMO that is open source.

Thank you for nominating! It's a great honour. Council member also comes with great responsibility and I might not have enough time. Will keep support our community in other perspectives.

I'm afraid I will not candidate for the next term. I suffer from chronic lack of time, and sometimes I just cannot work with the enthusiasm that juiceme and eekkelund have. These two certainly must - and deserve to - be in the council again.

I'm happy that wicket has accepted the nomination. I'm sure he'd (or he will) be a great "acquisition"

I'd also like to explicitly nominate peterleinchen and mosen!

How could i turn down two nominations
Thanks, i would be honored!

I frequently have to travel on very short notice and am unavailable for days though.
But I would be more than happy to use the time i already spend here to do some more effective things.

There's less than a week left until the nomination period ends and we're short on candidates. As far as I can tell, only mosen and myself have put ourselves forward. Any more volunteers?

I had been hoping more suitable candidates than I would come up. I am accepting the nomination. Hopefully there will be more candidates in the upcoming days.
