Yes, we will only proceed to elect people once those who were nominated have accepted. We will ask for acceptance after the nomination process finishes.

As others have stated, no, I'm afraid we cannot get rid of that requirement.

2) doofus-01 (as to funds on art commissions)

Wesnoth Inc Board Members -- Request for Nominations

To begin with, I would like to apologize for the lack of clear communication and efficiency of operations around our financial side, Wesnoth, Inc, over the last seven years or so. As matter of explanation, as often happens in an Open Source project, the people who originally took on responsibility f...

Re: Wesnoth2, Wesnoth, Inc, and other things

When there's very little transparency there's inevitably going to be some misunderstandings. For what it's worth I don't think it's fair to say there is "very little transparency". What is fair to say is that Wesnoth is and always has been a very loosely organized project. Worked on by volunteers w...

Re: Wesnoth2, Wesnoth, Inc, and other things

@iceiceice: Let's start with a few factual things: - I have no idea what you mean about there being $5000 in the flattr account. I never heard of there being anything remotely close to this. - I don't think I edited any posts I made lately. I'm not sure what you are talking about there. - I don't th...

Re: Copyfraud in a GitHub project called wesnoth2

Sorry guys, we neglected to note the licensing on these files before checking them in. We've updated the license. However I do want to have a conversation at some point about licensing of Wesnoth's images and sounds. The GPL makes little sense for images and sounds and I think we should look into ge...

Re: compiling wesnoth2

Put the wesnoth2 module from https://github.com/anura-engine/wesnoth2 under modules/wesnoth2 and then run anura with --module=wesnoth2 considering their unclear for profit business model, it is possible that they made their game deliberately hard to compile The model is intended to be similar to wha...

Re: Wesnoth2 ruleset (or undoing Wesnoth)

I thought that when making a game, one must have a clear idea what is he going to make Not at all. It's really common to start off by brainstorming ideas and trying different things out, getting feedback after trying out ideas, and so forth. It does require some open-mindedness on the part of those...

Re: Wesnoth2 ruleset (or undoing Wesnoth)

Hey guys, Just to clarify, the ruleset we are currently implementing in Wesnoth2 is simply an experimental ruleset we want to try out. Wesnoth2 is intended to be a platform more than any specific ruleset. We want to support a bunch of things and so trying something kind of different to start with se...
