Hey Everyone,

Now the time has come, to start talking about the Dance Queens Elections.
Its is one year ago, Didds, Naiki and me (Zhaza) became owners of the Dance Queens group.

I would like to start "talking" about how and what first.

I think it was, back then, for all of us a big surprise at Nottoo didn't wanted to continue as DQ Leader.
She did "gave it all away"... all she did build up and with lots of info.
With the group, the blog also was "given away", so you could say... it was a full package.

When i write this now, I speak for myself and not out of others names.

I have to be honest to say, at I didnt really knew what to do with all this.
For me it was only very important, to let this group "live" and not get lost.
All the work that has been done and all the time there was used to make this helpful group.

I know Didds and Naiki long time, and know they are great people. Didds is an amazing dance leader with the best shows!! Naiki has a lot of know-how and knows a lot of people.
I guess we all did what we were best in ;o)

For me... I really needed some time to "start up".
I had to find out what I wanted, I needed to find out how the blog was "working" and what was up to date and what not.
Maybe it sounds easy... to take over a "full and ready package", but I can assure you... it is NOT!
First of all... we were not Nottoo. We were 3 people with other ideas, know-hows and time to do things.

Well.. as time did go, i did try some things.
First of all, I made some space on my own land and did build a little DQ office.
As i back then had a larger land and space for the variety shows, it seemed a good idea.
But there was not a big interest, so when I'll had to move land i had the idea to build a Dance Queens INFO Center.

As many of you know, that became a reality.
My thoughts was, to bring people closer, put down some info, have shows there, classes, demo's... well name it!!
A free place for members to use.
I did rent a little land with 937 prims,
There was created a DQ Robot with a DQ account, so the first months were paid.

I did change some things on the blog, in hope it would be more attractive. Tried to update some things and did remove old things (its all archived).

I did open a facebook site, I made a (new) online calendar.

A lot of work, but I did enjoy every minute of it!

I still speak in "I form". That doesn't mean at it was only me who did all the work. I just tell my story here and how I feel about it.
There was a lot of help around.
Like I mentioned before... the owners had all their own qualities and their own know-hows. It all worked well together!
Then there are the managers.
Kat, Babypea and Lil.
As many of you saw and still see, Kat did a lot of posts, both in group and blog.
She was and still is a real gem and did work hard on the schedules, calender and posts... and believe me... thats a LOT of work.
Babypea and Lil also used a lot of time to update schedules on the blog.
Its a lot of work behind the scenes. Not visible for everyone, so it's a kind of not very thankful job (if you understand what I mean)
People use a lot of time, some others can't see.

Dance Queens...

There is still a lot, that could be better. But hey, nobody is perfect! All we can do, is try to do our best.

There are many ideas... and I'm sure at many of them will also be reality some day!
There are members who would like to help and of course that's great!

That is how I see the Dance Queens group... a community of Members who help and support other members!

Elections...

To come to this point.
Even I am a "talker", its not easy to come to this point ;o)
DQ became much more to me, then I ever could dream of.

Fact is, at both Didds and Naiki do not wish to continue as DQ leader, so they will not sign up for Elections.
I would like to continue, but then it would be "on my own".

I don't really know how to find a fair way to find the right leader for the Dance Queens group, but I think at most important of all to start with is, to ask who would be interested in this "job".
To take over the dance Queens group with all that's in it.
And most important of all... to keep it alive!!

I am very open for all suggestions and look forward to hear them.

Please look at the "Questions and Answers" to see some suggestions already there!

Big knuzzer Zhaza Zerbino ;o)

Then Didds also wanted to put some words to this...

*******

I would like to thank you all for giving me a chance as the manager of DQ at the same time i would like apologies for not being as active as i wanted to be ,so because of this I have decided it is best for the DQ group if i stepped down and let some body else take my role.

I am hoping that ZZ gets to stay as she has proved to you all that she is capable to carry the role to full expectations
Thank you all again and best of luck to you all

Diddy Hyun {Didds}

    Missed it! :)

    Nai here! Yep, stepping down too! My role in the DNZ trio was to be the drama stopper. It was an active role for the first 3-6 months of our term, but once all the drama was done and gone, that was the end of my role. For the following 6 months of our term I just floated about at shows, used search to find non DQ groups and invite then into DQ. I know a few of you know I used to do that when nottoo was in charge, so I don't feel I need to be a leader to do that.

    Time for me to bop down and let someone else take a leader role :)

    Ideally I would also like to see ZZ continue. DQers want more big events, and I can think of anyone more qualified to run big events than ZZ :)

    Thankyou for voting us in, its been a blast!

  2. I nominate Yummy (Lat Lovenkraft) for one of the open slots on the Dance Queens leadership. She has been very active in the dance community since long before I found my way to a stage. She is super smart, talented, wise, well-spoken, fair, honest, and proactive. She is level-headed, has integrity and has a proven ability to remain calm and open-minded, unbiased and equitable. On top of all this, she really cares about the dance community. I think she would be amazing in this role. Cheers, BabyP
