I would have thought this class community wanted someone who actually interacted with them.
An astute observation. I realized when voting that it may have been coincidental that oofalong was the only candidate I had ever heard of, but it's apparently a reflection of actual candidate forum habits.

Yes you are right. They are in essence just turning into a forum secretary

But ofcourse any knowledge they may have with the class, or any issues they see with their class, they can promulgate, discuss and share with the community. Something that people might not even actively participate in, but may now have the motivation to because of this Class Representative program. I can be playing the game for a week but if i have good PvE or PVP input (preferrably both!), and will start to post actively from here on and am good with words, then potentially i can be a good class secretary slash forum compiler as well.

These people were approached by Eric and showed interest in becoming a Class Rep. That means an interest in facilitating and sparking discussion in the forums.

It just seems to me that the people already interested in facilitating and sparking discussion are probably the best candidates, right? If we are just picking a secretary I would rather have someone who already transcribes thoughts.

Plus, it was only three months ago that Gudarzz was quitting the game, what happens if s/he does quit in the next two months before the Marauder questions are actually asked?

Hello! I just wanted to thank everyone for voting (even if it wasn't for me ). This class representative idea is a great initiative and will hopefully bring about some positive changes to the game.

There has a been a lot of discussion about the "ideal" class representative. People seem to be completely confused about the actual responsibility of this position. It has been exaggerated to the point where people believe these representatives will be altering class balance singlehandedly. As such, a "PVE vs PVP" mindset is starting to develop. We don't want this.

The class representative is merely responsible for collecting and organizing the concerns/ideas of the community to present to the developers. While it is beneficial for the representative to be "best in class", the ability to establish a real conversation about class balance is more important.

There have been some posts criticizing my lack of participation in the marauder threads (see above). I would argue that there are other ways to interact with the community outside the forums. I have a strong twitch.tv following. Viewers of all classes and backgrounds (PVE/PVP) come to ask questions AND to provide commentary/feedback on MY gameplay. (i.e. "Gudarzz you noob! Stop smashing without stacks!" or "Gudarzz watch out for the Vanguard!" ). WIth over 35,000 views, 400 + followers, and hundreds of hours of content, my community interaction is certainly not lacking.

Finally, I am not quitting the game. I wouldn't accept the nomination if I was planning to quit.

Hopefully, this clears up some of the confusion. Now get out there and vote!

TLDR resume:
2900 rating/1000+ ranked games with <Hey im mvp>, a top ranked PVP guild.
Close ties/alt toons with <Suckafish>, a top PVE progression guild.
Strong stream following.
Organized SWTOR charity event and raised over $1100 for Toys for TOTS.
Created the 360 saber throw.
Marauder class representative
