Im fine with anyone who wants this "job" but as Ive seen before the real issue is once they get the "job" we put a lot of weight on them to somehow change a system that just cant be changed on a dime. So whomever wins..cut them some slack and try to keep the debate positive..Ive voted just not going to say for who. Good luck to the winner and to the runner ups hey keep an eye on my favorite class your input is most definitely needed. Im trusting all of you to work for the class as best as you can....but if you can convince Bioware to make us Sins a one shot indestructible god of war...I wont argue

Seems all you want is a title rather than having the correct person qualified for it.
But then again both Kitru and NamikazeNaruto represent the tanking side, having a DPS Rep in Xin or Waka (for eg) would provide a slightly different perspective.

But popularity contest it is. Idiotic system.
If you're referring to wakalord he's been active and streaming for the last month +.
And yeah it's a stupid system to have a popularity contest decide who gets to address class concerns, but that's not the fault of the people participating in the race. If you were going to get angry about the popularity contest you should direct your anger at bioware and not the people winning the races. All they did was participate, and frankly any of the people on that list would do a great job.

He already won Shadow polls -

I've searched for guides and videos all over for my sin/shadow. Xeneka/Shinarika has become the only videos I will watch, always clear, precise, and with sime kick *** music to go along with them. She has posted a guide or video after just about every update it seems. Her videos include min/max guides, gear guides, guides for each spec of the class. She has done an amazing job. No I'm not a guildie of hers. I've never chatted with her. She's not on my friends list. I've never had any contact other than watching the great product she put out. If you haven't checked out her vids, go to youtube and look her up. Older updates are under shinarika. The newer ones are under aonetta era if I'm not mistaken on the spelling.

Waka didn't beat my face in when I ran into him during the gree dailies on my PVE geared slinger. Totally voting for him.

Also, drama is entertaining.

I see that you are advocating "qualifications" based on # of pots or amount of most recent posts. That is fine everyone is entitled to their own opinion ^_^

I don't think this specific class poll's issue is with the boldened phrases above, i think this poll is "heated" because the nominations are very competitive with each other. As someone has already pointed out

Shadow poll lead by Kitru and then we have this poll right here between Xinika and Waka(eaten).

Let's lay some of the facts down to hopefully reduce the amount of misconception regarding the nominees.

Xinika has a lot of PVP DPS video guides on the class forums (shadow forums reposted on the sin forums or vice versa for promulgation. Because of this i will just link the ones posted for the shadows)
Shinarika - Shadow Breaker [Ultimate Jedi Shadow/Sith Assassin Guide]
Shinarika II - Shadow PvP
[Guide-Video] Shinarika 9 and Introduction to 23/1/17 and 13/28 "Arika" Hybrid
Let's Put your spec to the test!
[Warzone Guide] Shinarika Warzonia
Truth about SWTOR's Competitive PvP and how to fix it.

Waka has a lot of PVP DPS perspectives on the class (in the PVP forums mainly)
[PvP Guide] Wakaworld: Your resource for advanced Sith Assassin/Jedi Shadow strategy!
do you not want to see assassins be horribly and needlessly nerfed?
Abilities hitting through shroud breaks the current state of PvP
The Four Pillars of why you should consider running a DPS assassin/shadow in YOUR rwz
same thread on the assassin forums
same thread reposted on other server forums for promulgation
Wakalord's concerns/ideas for DPS assassins/shadows

Both would be good reps. Both contributed, contributes and is contributing right now on the forum outside of this thread. So pick your poison! Everyone, the voters especially, would do well to cease fire and
keep it clean
And finally i guess we can attribute this thread to all the nominees: July Assasin questions - Let's start her up!
