Seeking to take over Megalithic Monuments leadership

8 posts in this topic

The group which manages the Megalithic Monuments category is lead by The Royles which appears to be inactive in Waymarking for quite some time. I'm very interested in this category which is why I would like to take over leadership.

 

I sent an e-mail via geocaching.com to The Royles and got no reply. I also sent one to Waywizard to request leadership of this category without a reply. I just sent of a note to checkmark.

 

Anyone have any advice on how I might proceed?

 

Thanks,

RitC.

You are doing everything right. I've taken over as leader of a few categories in the past year because of inactive officers. I would assume that you will be in contact by one of the Groundspeak administrators. Just be patient and and I'm sure you'll be selected as leader soon.

Another possibility is to demote the leader (and other inactive officers).

You just need some active officers to do so because you'll need 60% yea votes.

Just approve some more officers (if you have the permission to do) and start a vote to demote.

I would be happy to help and become an officer at this interesting category.

Thanks for the good will. The problem is that there is only one active officer besides me. And isn't it only the leader who can promote new officers?

I'm sure every officer can promote new officers. But then there will be a vote where you need 66% yea again.

So this will not help in your case.

 

But there are two other officers in your group, that have been logged in not long ago. Maybe you can reactivate them and the one who has logged in last December to get the absent leader off or to promote other officers.

Yes, it could be possible but in my experience, only the really active members in Waymarking will reply to an e-mail, and even that is not certain!!! There must be an easier way.

 

I will try and present my results here.

Ok, so now that Tante.Hossi has become an officer, if we vote successfully to demote "The Royles", who then becomes the leader? All officers have the same rank and next in the line is wilsonjw who has not replied to my e-mails. He might not want to become leader.
