Yeah, I was… harsher on my first pass through, then watch the interviews. Seeing people’s faces humanized them, and I went back and changed how I phrased things for a few candidates.
I applaud you for putting yourself out there, and trying to represent for your community. And, I really do like your artwork. … I don’t know what to say. I empathize with you. Like, I’ve never run for the CSM, but I have been making content for a few years now, and I still get nervous about releasing stuff (like this document). I worry if I missed any mistakes, how it will be received, or if any one will even give a ship. So, I take no pleasure in pissing on your parade and withholding an endorsement. I sincerely hope that this (and your experience as a candidate) doesn’t get you down. It took balls for you run. I know that this wouldn’t be a big deal for everyone. But I suspect that this required you to step outside of your comfort zone. You did a live interview, and you presented yourself to be inspected and judged by a community that can sometimes be as brutal and unforgiving as the game we play. And that, I respect.
