Well, it's time again for all important checkuser and oversight appointments. Yes, this time there will be no election. Arbcom have the final say, regardless of community opinion. After the last elections spectacularly appointed a single person, it's clear that they do not want new functionaries.
Regardless, we have MuZemike (T-C-L-K-R-D)
from last time, and the ever recurrent Tiptoety who's tried for CU umpteen times, and now he'll have it handed on a plate.
Repeated for oversight is Beeblebrox (T-C-L-K-R-D)
plus others like MBisanz, which makes me assume all or most have tried before and failed. Oh, and Cary Bass is a candidate too.
