I mentioned during my series on officer promotions that I would explain what we did for our curent officer search. I am proud to anounce that No Vacancy has two new officers after a few weeks of going through the process.
When we first started the process we were unsure how we would go about it but we finally decided that we would start off by having the guild nominate people for the position. We wanted to get the whole process done before Lich King release day so we rushed it. Unfortunately Blizzard decided to have some eternally long patch day so that nixed our speedy plans.
After a few days of nominations the current officers got together and narrowed down the choices. I know many members of the guild read this blog so I feel it inappropriate to go into detail about this part of the process but the majority of it was decided on based on general availability and whether or not the candidate would be a "good fit" with the current leadership.
We came up with a short list of 3 members which we presented to the guild to vote on. We formed up a raid and had everyone vote via ready check with the highest vote getter winning the position.
During the officer discussion we couldn't decide if we wanted one or two officers but we knew that we wanted representation form physical DPS classes as our only current representation was through alts and off-specs. The guilds choice during the ready check vote was a caster which meant that we were going to have a second officer promoted. The only problem was that the two DPS warriors that were up for nomination tied. However, I had not voted so I had to break the tie.
Let me say, it was an extremely hard choice. Both candidates were just as qualified as the other. What it came down to for me was one had an authenticator and one did not. I know it seems like the wrong way to make a decision but with everthing else equal it was the only difference.
