- Poet Ultima (Myself)
- Serendipitus
- Havoc202
- iZianni
- FlamesofTerror
- Gen Mad Hatter
- The Blawnzed Elf
- Jaykoboy
- Gundenspand
- Skyhawk47
- TheDeathstalker
- Bigg Fuddgee
- Wulffe

We have already begun tossing about ideas, and have some very simple initiatives in the works that will help CCF become a better enviornent for all. Some things we aim to work on in the near future;

- Create a universal template for champion creation that is easy to read and easy to understand, setting general guidelines for what a basic concept should include.

- Create a universal format for how a concept should be reviewed, eliminating the propensity of one-sentance reviews and set the standard for the manner in which a review should be issued to ensure creative feedback.

- Gather together all the forums prolific writers, artists, and number-wizards who are willing to offer their gifts to others, forming specialist's Guilds where people may seek help.

These initiatives are just blueprints for now; we don't want to rush anything. But I want to personnally assure you that steps are being taken to improve the overall quality of this forum and restore it to a place of artistic expression and creative learning. True, we aren't Riot. We don't have Red tags or awesome forum avatars, we don't get paid to do this. But the fact is that Riot can't, for a number of reasons, be a presense in this forum. By forming a Council, we are trying to fill that void of leadership, and we hope for your encouragement and feedback to make positive things happen for this forum.

While this thread will serve primarily as a place for Council members to gather and communicate with eachother, it will also serve as a conduit between the Council and the Community. I will try to update this as often as I can as the Council moves forward to ensure that everyone stays in the loop. Feel free to provide any suggestions or ask us any questions; improvement is fostered by the individual voicing his or her thoughts to the whole.

Furthermore, we are not simply a legislature; we hope to be teachers and tutors as well. All of us excel at certain aspects of champion design; Havoc202, Bigg Fuddgee and Gen Mad Hatter are pretty number savvy if you need help with balance, while myself and a few others are more geared toward the creative design of the character itself (lore etc.) Some of us just have good minds for organization (which every aspiring governments needs. =P)

If you feel that you're stuck, you need advice, you've hit a wall, come talk to us. We'll help in any way we can.

@Council Members

{This section is just for Council members to be on the same page in terms of when our next meeting is and what we will be discussing.... and underhanded plots to overthrow Morello. Shh!}

***Next Council Meeting Set For: Friday, August 31. 5 PM (PST) "Council" chat room.***

In this meeting we will discuss;

- Final draft of Concept Template: does it set a sufficient standard for champion creation while still being approachable for new champcrafters?

- Artist collaboration; how to best go about organizing the community's specialists into one group to provide creative services. (Artists, writers, analysts, other.)

- CCF Code: draft general guidelines for the forum, with an emphasis on finding a way to promote the "Review for a Review" system into something more universally accepted and followed.

- World Domination: overthrow Morello and infiltrate Riot Games. (If we have time.)
Please do not call yourself a council, because that's not what you are. You have made it clear that you are not trying to enforce any laws or anything, and Councils do exactly that. Please just call yourselves benefactors or something other then a Council. It seriously bothers me, and makes me think you are a hothead who thinks you can create power where it is not given. Which is not the case. You are simply trying to benefit the community, and I respect that, but this "Council" name doesn't show that at all.

Thank you for your time.

We chose to be called a Council of non Riot members. We cant make you do anything, that is just it we dont have the power to do so. If you dont like us then dont deal with us. Stop being rude about people finally taking up leadership in a forum that is starting to look dark

I think it's about time we either started ignoring Kanacho or we just made an original name. Too much drama.

The fact is Council comes from advice (yeah, i don't know wtf happened in your language, i'm used to "conseil" for council and "conseiller" for advise), so all is here, there are no powers in advices, just advanced thoughts which can be ignored or followed. A Council is an assembly of advisers...

I hope I can "come" to the council meeting tomorrow. If not, just send me a mail about what important has been said please .
