However, the people will decide.

The Winning Candidate will be Required to contact Mistress Beauty (details to be supplied to the winner) for the Final Interview and Acceptance.

Definitions & FAQ:

Designated Main Monitoring Area: Primary Area of the Castle for which a Monitor is responsible. EX: Pub Area rooms vs Dungeon Area rooms. While Monitors are assigned a Primary area of responsibility, they must "fill in" when Monitors for other areas are not present as their experience and abilities dictate. The current choices are:

Pub (Club Soda, Hot Tub, Bedroom, Square and related Citizen rooms)
Dungeon (The Corridors, Dungeon, Tower, Courtyard and related Citizen rooms)
GOR (The Jewel of Gleaming Thassa, The Oasis, and related rooms)
Crypt (The Castle Crypt and related gaming rooms)
Rainbow (The Rainbow Lounge, Lesbian Lounge, Boys Lounge, and related Citizen rooms)
Pagan (The Pagan Temple, Cathedral, and Sacred Temple rooms)
General (All rooms and Areas. Must meet Qualifications for All Areas)

Hours of Duty: A Beauty's Castle Monitor's Hours of Duty are the times of day (or night depending on your time zone) when a Monitor Expects & Intends that they will Most Often be in the Castle. While it is important that a Monitor try and keep a somewhat regular schedule, and also keep to their chosen times, a Monitor is welcome to be "on duty" any time. One should also note that a Monitor need not always be On Duty when in the Castle.

Final Interview and Acceptance: All prospective Castle Monitors are required to be interviewed by Mistress Beauty, who determines that Monitor's "fitness" for duty, and informs them of the other requirements and technical aspects of Being a Beauty's Castle Monitor. It is also a chance for the Monitor Candidate to "meet" Mistress Beauty and get to know each other a little better. All Monitors pledge their Allegiance to the Castle and the Mistress and are expected to perform their duties with Objectivity, Courtesy, and Honor.

Tenured Monitor: A "tenured" Monitor is a "full time" position as a Beauty's Castle Monitor, much like that of a University Professor. It requires a constant level of Commitment, Honor, and Loyalty to Beauty's Castle and its People, and Dedication to the Ideals upon which it is Founded. Those individuals who prove that they can meet and even exceed these goals through experience earned in Elected Monitor Positions will be eligible to fullfill such a post.

The above Rules & Regulations are subject to updates and changes as determined by Castle Admin as they become aware of any necessary alterations to ensure a fair and productive election process.

Happy Campaigning & Voting!
