When, if ever, is it alright to campaign and host at the same time?
>In main tournaments
>In side (/tnt/) tournaments
I'd like to hear your perspective since I'm not sure there's a concrete perspective.
I figure a lot of us who campaign have the will to host, but fear that we'd lose the ability to campaign because of it.

Nothing wrong with it as long as you don't rig the votes, but that's not an issue with campaigning, that's an issue with the host.
Still, best you don't say who you are campaigning for since some people will get mad and think you are definitely rigging (even though you wouldn't need to campaign to rig).

If you're campaigning in a tournament you don't host, it can be forgiven. If you can somehow campaign the way Psyanon does where you can cover everyone fairly, I can't think of any issue with that type of campaigning while hosting. Otherwise, hosts should not be campaigning at the same time and should be as unbias as possible. Hosts campaigning leads to issues of being accused of rigging and every example we have had has actually had rigging. There should be no time to campaign anyway. As a host, your job is to make sure things run smoothly and to be present as much as you reasonably can to respond to concerns. You can also joke around in the threads if you don't writefag/roleplay particular characters or have melties over some, like NSA.

There's nothing wrong with it. Just don't rig or advertise that you as a host are campaigning for a specific character. Furthermore make sure getting the hosting part done takes precedence.

What if there are multiple hosts? If they confirm that they all have equal ownership of the forms, would that absolve an individual host if they want to drop OC?

it's really a trust thing, it's fine to campaign as long as you're not rigging (or ignoring rigging) for characters you support.
finding out Nightshift was being a biased petty asshole is bad, but it's not the sole reason for her removal. it's more the straw that broke the camel's back. the person we are trusting to be fair and impartial has been revealed to be petty and spiteful. there's also her complete lack of transparency, and general incompetence, and the fact that we have other options who are trustworthy and (hopefully) willing to host in her place.
that last point is especially important. i think if someone like coayynon had been around after Ms. /co/ 2022, Nightshift would've been replaced a lot earlier.

I think it's better to just not do it due to the issues that may arise. But there's nothing wrong with the act itself.

I don’t think it’s that bad, but Numnuts and NightShift have really damaged its perception.
