The problem is that we as community organizers are not elected. We are the people who are willing to put the time and effort and (significant amounts of) personal money into this game. With very few exceptions, no one has gotten paid for their involvement in the TF2 scene, and even those few that have will tell you that they did not make a positive return on their investment.
Every project I've ever helped with has had an open call for volunteers. In almost every case, people with no real skillset other than patience and willingness to herd cats for 2-3 hours have been welcome. Every time we get a flood of positive responses then no one shows up, people flake, we end up with the same core dozen or so people doing everything. That's how I ended up doing servers for every NA TF2 LAN for like 4 years. Its not a complex job, anyone who has ever put in rcon commands and seen a linux terminal could do what I do, and probably better, but no one else seems to want to sit in a corner for the entirety of LAN and keep things moving.
The people who are "ambassadors" are really more like organizers. Samiface worked super hard and leveraged contacts she's made in the industry to try and help get this off the ground. You couldn't "elect" anyone into her position.
That's fair but doesn't address the problem where people who organize things are getting involved in forum drama.I was merely proposing a possible fix, but you appear to have acknowledged what I suspected, people flaking their proposed responsibilities.
