We are happy to go with final round. My sincere thanks to everyone who asked very good questions, it helped all candidates to open up their scope with variety of topics. I hope our next President will role play to manifest all our dreams and to continue the momentum that 'Brian' has already given to the community. Only one gets the race but we will remember valued efforts from all candidates who stepped into the race. FanBox given us a wonderful platform and now is the time to give our best to it.

They all are doing well and they all are paying their full attention for the progress of OUR FanBox community. One thing that I would like them to remember is the community expectation. We all are here to earn and to enjoy the accompany of each other. Yes we are enjoying our time already but one reason is still there. I hope they all are paying their full attention on it so that we all have a great time here in FanBox.

Hi Jake,

You raise good points about the community's expectations. We all need to be aware that there are also expectations from FanBox - for example, we should all act responsibly and with FanBox and the other members of the community in mind.
If we all think selfishly (i.e. we only think "how can I get more money") then in the long run we are doing more harm to the community and the site.
If we all bear in mind that we are part of a growing "nation" of entrepreneurs and that we should all be supporting each other in our efforts, then there is no reason why we cannot all be successful :-)

What I want to point out is we need some thing back from the company so that the company can have a stable community members. We need each other and we all know what we have to do on our part.

Hi Crispina,
I know we only had time to address a tiny percentage of the questions and issues that the community submitted, but I am sure that whoever wins the final election and gets into office will keep true to the spirit of FanBox and the community and work tirelessly to build on the great work already started by Brian and the team in San Diego!

Hi Deb!

I am also very excited about the election, now that the cards are all on the table and the community can see our enthusiasm and our intentions moving forward. I'm not sure if it helps or if it makes the decision more difficult though :-p

Time will tell, and I am sure that whoever is elected will hold true to the traditions of FanBox while building for a solid and successful future for all!
