are you sure you can keep up two RPs at once, val?

also, since Seth is leaving, I have a free spot for the current arc I'm leading. The spot is for Mr. Pink - the second of the (three) dognappers. A human, street smart small-time criminal with little ability of physical confrontation.
For those that are not aware, my own character Rex is being dognapped by the trio of humans, hired by a mysterious and rich employer.

Starring:
The mysterious boss - Me.
The leader - O'Connell - RandomGeekNamedBrent
The smart but weak guy - Mr. Pink - ???
The strong, but simple guy - Fred - valerio
(yet to come) The police - the GM
(yet to come) The PI - xhunterko
(yet to come) surprise!

so it seems the nominees are me, Moon, and Val. I'm willing to accept my nomination, Val is willing, and if he wins and decides GMing two neighborhoods is too much he can pass it off to whoever gets second place, and Moon didn't turn down the nomination so I'll take that as accepting it too.

so should I get someone to edit the first post into a poll or should we just take a vote by posts?

I think just voting by posts is easiest. Both Moon and Brent have my vote. If I only have to choose one then it'd be Moon. If I remember correctly I seem to remember him being in charge of something previously before. Not sure what though I can't quite place it. Not voting for Val cause I don't want him overworked.

Mr. Pink is still looking for someone to take him. Who would like to do so?

just to be clear, I was asking everyone to clearly restate who they were voting for so we can have a GM. so far it's one vote for Moon and I'm obstaining from voting cause I really don't care which of the 3 candidates win.

current standing: 2 votes Moon, 1 vote each for myself and Val, and 2 who are abstaining at the moment.

I believe we still need votes from Moon and Keon, and maybe meshell and Leaf if they can get in here and cast their vote soon enough.

now that's a weird situation.
Should I vote for myself, I'll be with 3 votes (which at the moment will be a kind of cheating...)
Should I vote for someone else, we'll probably go for a second round of elections.
However with so many people going neutral, a vote like this can't be accurate.

Therefore I vote for Brent. If there are to be second round of the elections, I want to ask every participant in this RP to vote so we may actually know what the people truly want.

actually, it makes sense for those who pretty much just joined and don't really know us all that well to refrain from voting, since they probably don't really have an opinion. That would leave the only informed voters being me, you, Val, hunter, Marine, Musclecar, and technically Leaf but he's kinda gone AWOL.

Technically I'd say that all three of the nominees should have kept from voting, but that apparently would have made it a 3 way tie at one vote each, and it would have just been an endless stalemate.

anyway, now there should be another vote with only me and Moon as the options. I'd say the nominees shouldn't vote, but I suppose that's really up to us.

but one more try. Musclecar, Marine, hunter, and Val, make your choice between the two of us. Other players, feel free to vote if you feel like it.

actually, anyone think we should try dual GMs? any GM decisions being made between Moon and me?

Still going for Moon. But honestly I think everyone should vote regardless of how long they've been here. Most importantly because they don't have already informed opinions about one person or another.

I think that the dual GM thing would work great, or at least i think it will...

But if i have to cast my vote for someone, i'll send mine to Moon.

I'm up for the dual GM plan, however I have a question:
would we be the first to dual GM an RP in the forum?

perhaps, but I'm pretty sure at least one neighborhood has gone with a GM + Assistant GM system.

I'd say yes, but that's a decision up to the GM, and we're kind of still in between GMs at the moment.
I'd say post a character sheet and we'll probably be done with deciding.

If there are no objections to the 2 GM idea, then it's me and Moon.
If there are objections, then I guess it's just Moon.

well it could conceivably be an even vote, but right now it's 2 for Moon and one for me. Val voted for Moon last time so I'm assuming he'd actually win. but if no one objects to both of us trying to run the neighborhood as equals, then we don't really need to finish voting.

Alrighty, here I go! By the way (if no one minds my noobie opinion), I think you guys should go with dual GMs. They should have a way of quickly communicating with each other so they can be on the same page, and if one GM can't act in the rp, the other one can act(if it's agreed between both parties.)

Character Time!

-Name-
Arianna Allen

-Character Type-
main character

-Gender-
female

-Species-
English Shepherd (dog)

-Age-
6 human (making her 21 in pet years)

-Neighborhood-
Applegate!

-Appearance-
Arianna is a tri-color English Shepherd- she has a black overcoat, with brown at the edges of a white undercoat, which extends into a collar around her neck, and a two colored blaze extending from her muzzle. She has two white socks on her front paws, and brown ones on her back paws, with a white tip on her tail. She has on blue eye, and one green, and wears a brown leather collar with a checkered blue bandana. Having come from England, she uses UK phrasings (such a 'lollipop man' and 'the loo') and has an accent.

-Personality-
Arianna comes from a farm just on the outskirts of a small English town, so she has a good work ethic, and is somewhat of a perfectionist. She is friendly though, and will come up to people, instead of just waiting for them to come to her. However, she is somewhat easily offended, and though she won't show it- frustration will seep off of her like lava. Being a serious soul, she won't see the humor in many jokes, and overanalyze things a lot. Nevertheless she is someone that is willing to lend a friendly ear and share stories of the farm in return. Even if she is blunt in response.

-Other Notes-
Arianna and her family, the Allens, lost their farm to a fire, set by a malcontent rival, who just happened to have practice as an arson. Mr. Allen had always wanted to wanted to move to America though, so after seeing that their farm residents were sent to good homes, they took up residence in Applegate- husband, wife, dog, and four kids all. Arianna regrets that she wasn't able to protect the farm, and desperately hopes that her father finds a job before all their savings run out.
Arianna has a terrible sweet tooth, so beware! Any offers made to your pantry, she may not be able to control herself.
Freerunning is a passion for her, having developed it by dodging dangers and jumping fences on the farm.

-SPECIAL-
Strength- 7(farm work, you know)
Perception- 6( sheep are surprisingly sneaky)
Endurance- 8 (livestock! They just won't go the right way!)
Charisma- 4(to be blunt is best for a friend)
Intelligence- 7 (don't need a fancy education to make my way!)
Agility- 8(fences and sheep!)
Luck- 2 (don't need luck, just need to work harder!)

Yeah Dual sounds good, the only argument I see is communication between Brent and Moon in a case if one is absent and is needed it could have implications on decision making but otherwise it sounds like a great idea.

I have Moon on Skype, so that's only a problem if one of us is away from the computer for an extended period of time, in which case the control temporarily shifts to just one of us, and it's still better than if we had 1 GM who couldn't get on.

Janus and Buster are somewhere on the main street , I think they're in the diner , could be wrong
Miles , Christopher and Mason are at the park west of town , just found the sign of possibility of Chris' brother was dognapped
Serenade , Duke , Tara and Keon are a bit farther into the forest , near a lake and are about to go deeper for a walk
I think it's around the middle of the day

Um, I tried to tie in Arianna with the situation in the park, because Janus and Buster don't seem to need a third wheel, and Arianna is unlikely to go into the forest for no reason. Is that okay?
