I, Tibbers of the Mud, submit the following item to be added to the December Althing.

As a brief summary, this is to put in place an election process for Guildmasters. As the Copora is currently written, a Guildmasters term is indefinite, and there is no election process. Which means the only way for a Guildmaster to be removed from office, to be by their guild impeaching them, or by the Monarch in agreement with the KPM or KGMR removing them.

This proposal is to change "Section IX.E" to read the following (italics mark the changes and an explanation of each change is listed below the proposal):

" E. Class Guildmaster

1. Class Guilds include all fighting guilds (warriors, healers, barbarians, etc.)

2. The term of a Guildmaster is approximately one year long, beginning at the Spring Midreign and ending at the following Spring Midreign; unless no one declares to be Guildmaster of their Class, in which case the Guildmaster may hold their position until the next election

3. Guildmasters must be Contributing Members

4. Guildmasters must be 6th level, unless there are no other qualified candidates

5. One must have received a credit in a guild in the past six months in order to vote for or run for that class guildmaster

6. Guild members must pass a verbal and/or written test given by their guildmaster in
order to advance in level

7. If the proper guildmaster is unavailable, or if the sitting guildmaster needs to test, then
the GMR, or three other guildmasters may give the appropriate test

8. Guildmasters have the following responsibilities:
a Ensure that guild members follow the proper rules of the class
b Monitor their class and present ideas for improvements and possible solutions for
problem areas to the Monarch and the Interkingdom Rules Representative
c Help new people to learn and play by the rules
d Encourage garb, equipment, and personas applicable to their class

9. Guildmasters may be removed from office by a ⅔ majority vote, from contributing members of that guild, or by joint agreement of the Monarch, and either the PM or GMR

10.) If a Guildmaster position becomes vacated, or the previous Guildmaster does not wish to continue in office, a Pro-Tem replacement may be appointed until the next Spring Midreign Election, by joint agreement of the sitting Monarch, and either the PM or GMR "

To explain each change.

E 2: Currently there is no revolving election for Guildmasters. With no revolving election, there is no clear expectation for a Guildmaster to perform their duties. While yes 3 contributing Guild members can call for a vote to remove a Guildmaster from office, it is convoluted and effectively just an impeachment process. Instead this allows for a passing of the office and the ability for someone to declare, without first having to impeach their Guildmaster.

E 4: Per the RoP a Guildmaster has two jobs. First, to administer level tests for players advancing in said class. Secondly, to, in conjunction with the games reeve, determine whether a player's garb meets Look the Part requirements.
With those being the defined job of a Guildmaster, I believe it best for the Guildmaster to already have gone through those requirements and have the experience to do so, by them already having theoretically passing level tests for all Six levels, and experience playing the class.

E 9: This is just a rephrasing to get rid of any room for interpretation.
If taken literally, the current wording states that in order for a Guild to impeach their Guildmaster, ⅔ of the contributing members must all vote to have said Guildmaster removed from office. Ie. If there are 30 contributing members of the guild, and only 19 voted, the result would always be no even if they all said yes, as 20 would have to vote yes for it to be a ⅔ majority of ALL contributing members.

E 10: This change is to update the phrasing to reflect the other changes in this Althing, as an option for a Guildmaster to continue to hold office is written in E 2, rather than how it currently operates.

Remove 6. Changes rules of play. If a guild master has beef then they can stagnate a player from levels.
