Guidelines for the Office of Mayor
In the forum:
The mayor will appoint his deputy mayor as his first official act. The mayor’s deputy can also be elected. This election has to be held by the mayor. The mayor has the right to appoint or have elected a new deputy mayor at any time.
The mayor and his deputy are granted rights of administration for the board of their town.
The mayor has access to a special board, where mayors can communicate undisturbed about topics that are important for all cities.
The mayor and his deputy are responsible for the observation of the rules in the board ( >> see here <<) of their city domain and in their city private room. In case of problems or controversial cases the mayor will contact a main moderator he trusts.
The mayor and his deputy are responsible for the organization of the city board. They have the right to pin, delete or split posts or threads in order to maintain a clear structure.
By request, up to 5 subboards can be opened.
The registration of city moderators, the opening of subboards and the giving of access to or cancellation from the city's private room is the duty of Wigglerin. To avoid misunderstandings the mayor is the only contact person for Wigglerin concerning these matters. He informs her via forum PM (not in the meta game!). He can cede this duty to one of his city moderators.
It is recommended to fix a post in the city's forum in which everybody can see who is deputy and also who has access to the city's private room.
The mayor will notify Fr3akuency of general bugs concerning the city immediately.
The mayor is the spokesman of his citizens and has to represent all of their interests.
The mayor has the right to upload pictures to and from the server. This function is activated only for mayors and moderators and should only be used for PlayCatan- or mayor's tasks.
PlayCatan meta game:
The mayor and his deputy have special rights within the town hall: They supervise the city’s gold, they can pin news on the town hall door and send them via Catan post and thus inform their citizens. They supervise the polls for new buildings.
As a symbol of office the mayor wears a highly decorated golden chain.
The vote of the mayor at a poll for a new building counts double in case of draw.
