    Greetings Legends!

    It is that time of the year again when we invite the Legends Community to put forward candidates for election to the next Galactic Senate, to take office from the 1st March 2020 after the current Senate leaves office on the 29th February 2020.

    Being part of the Galactic Senate programme is a both an honour and a responsibility - as a serving senator you will be the bridge between the Project Staff and the Legends Community and it will be your responsibility to represent the views and opinions of the community at all times.


    ELECTION TIMETABLE
    The timetable for the elections to the Eighth Galactic Senate is as follows:

    • Saturday 25th January - Nominations Open
    • Friday 7th February - Nominations Close
    • Saturday 8th February - Last meeting of the Seventh Galactic Senate
    • Sunday 9th February - Staff Review of Candidates & announcement of Candidates
    • Wednesday 12th February - Voting Opens & Campaigning begins
    • Friday 14th February - Seventh Galactic Senate Statistics Released
    • Saturday 15th February - Senate Forums are archived and reset for next Senate
    • Tuesday 25th February - Voting Closes and Campaigning ends
    • Thursday 27th February - Votes are validated by Customer Service Team and Election Results are announced
    • Saturday 29th February - Seventh Galactic Senate leaves office
    • Sunday 1st March - Eighth Galactic Senate takes office
    • Saturday 7th March - First meeting of the Eighth Galactic Senate


    BEING A SENATOR - What to expect
    As a serving Senator you will have the opportunity to help shape the future of the Project and champion those important player issues that the Legends Community want championed!

    In addition to interacting with the community and proposing changes and new features on their behalf, Senators will also get an opportunity to interact with the developers, give feedback and even get to help out with testing new content and updates (as required by the QA Team and only at invitation).

    You will receive the covetted in-game title of Galactic Senator and a unique forum and discord rank granting you privilleged access to interact with both staff and the community.

    NEW THINGS!
    Starting with the EIGHTH Galactic Senate we will be introducing some new features to the Senate program, based on feedback we have received from both Senators and Players alike - these include:

    • Senate Election Collections - get credit towards a new collection and badge by voting in the election! (Voting from pre vious senates will be applied to collections at a later date)
    • Senate In-game Rewards - Senators and Player can earn in-game rewards for participation in new in-game senate events such as Committee meetings, town hall meetings, public debates and more!
    • Senate Committees - New this Senate term will be the introduction of a number of Senate Sub-committees which will be chaired by Senators themselves and will focus on a specific aspect of the game with the involvement of the community - look out for committees covering PvP, PvE, Space, Crafting and more!
    • Senator Code of Conduct - we have listened to the negative feedback as well as the positive and starting this term Senators will be held to a higher standard with the new Senator Code of Conduct, ensuring your represetatives act appropriately and can be brought to account if they do not...

    This sounds interesting. Are you able to provide more details on this?

    Player Association of Nominee: Fixer

    About the Nominee (tell us about what they are like as a person and a player):

    As a person, I'm professionally a Firefighter/EMT and an Emergency Room Technician. I'm honest, hard-working, and caring - and throughout my life, I've genuinely enjoyed helping others - whether that be in a real-life or online setting. As a player, I've been an avid roleplayer throughout my time on live - and on Legends - but I also enjoy other aspects of the game such as decorating, space, and GCW (specifically city invasions.) I have also greatly enjoyed my time thus far as a Senator by being able to be an advocate for the community and putting forth proposals that will hopefully help enrich the game that we all love!

    About the Nominee’s history with SWG (i.e: how long have they played on Legends, did they play on Live etc.):

    I have played SWG from the very beginning - way back in 2003 - and only stopped for a few years after live went down. I found out about Legends about a year and a half ago now and immediately busted out my old disks and got back into the game I loved! About a month into playing Legends, I ran for a Senate seat, largely out of a desire to give the roleplaying community a voice - and as I've mentioned previously - I've enjoyed every moment of it! Not only do I feel that I've been the best advocate I can be for the roleplaying community, but I also feel that my time as Senator has exposed me to so many more areas of the game and has allowed me to be an effective voice for all players and communities within Legends!

    Why does the Nominee wish to be a Galactic Senator:

    I've truly enjoyed my time as Senator and it is amazing how quick six months goes by! I'd like to stay in my role by continuing to be a voice for new and old players alike, and to keep putting forth proposals that will not only add new content to the game - but also fix existing content. I have always striven to give a 100% in my role as Senator and I would continue that if I am so lucky as to return for a third term.

    What ONE thing would the nominee like to change or add to the game:

    As a Senator, I have had the privilege of hearing a plethora of great ideas to enrich Legends and there is no way I could narrow them all down to one thing - so I'll simply say that the one thing I'd like to do is to continue to port forth those great ideas and to do everything in my "power" to keep the excitement and potential of Star Wars Galaxies / Legends alive and well!

    Why should the SWG Community should vote for the nominee:

    As I've said - I have prided myself on putting all the effort I can into being the best Senator, and advocate, for the Legends community - and I will continue to do so if I am graced with a third term. I feel there is still so many more ways that I can help improve the game for us all and I sincerely hope to be given the opportunity to continue to do that work!
