Re: [pcgen] PCGen Board of Directors Open Meeting , 5/10/2010, 9:00 pm
- Hi Folks,
In order to become a Silverback, you must have shown consistent
commitment to the Project. usually by participating in a general
consistency of the position that you'd like. In most cases, the Board of
Directors selects someone from the ranks to become a Silverback. Usually
a person has attained the highest rank of Chimp before being called for
'Silverback', though this is not always the case.
The seconds are selected by the Silverback, or in the case of a missing
Silverback, the Board will make recommendations and vote.
These actions are usually behind the scenes. So join the project, be
consistent and if you're truly dedicated, eventually someone will pull
your name up for consideration.
Showing up for the IRC meetings, though important, is not a major
function for the Silverbacks. The reason we have problems getting
everyone to show up is that we are an International Community. Everyone
has differing schedules and making a time that ALL the members can make
is not an easy task. Plus, having a quorum is nice for decisions, but
not an absolute, we can hold votes off Board Meeting for major
decisions. A Quorum just makes the process faster, and lets all the
parties have a more lively discussion.
You can see all the rules governing this project over on the WIKI, at
