It breaks down like this.
I wanted to join, so, I signed up, created an account. I went through the application.
I was given five votes to use to vote for others. This apparently is how you get in. The person with most votes gets an invite.
However, after casting votes for desperate strangers
Who were clogging up my inbox, I learnt that the five votes you use must be used to vote for five people “They” have nominated for that week (month?) Any of your votes not used to vote for these five superstars are literally for nothing…
If you don’t vote for all five, you slide down the rankings into the Bog of Eternal Stench.
Not only that, upon learning if my faux pas with the votes, in returning to the Discord I learnt I was now only a “second level” member of the Discord, unable to see comments etc from other members who were higher levels than me.
And, get this! The folks in the running for nomination, the special five, were interesting. Number one was (drum roll) the admin of the foundation discord! The whole thing just smacks of something creepy and I got out straight away.
