This guarantees that the regular members will get their word in, anonymously or otherwise, but the ultimate choice would be left to the staff, as it should be.
That is a feasible idea but in the end the staff do know what they're doing, they're not going to appoint someone if they didn't think said person was up to it.
Like I said earlier there's a lot of people with different beliefs and from different cultures, there'll be too many conflicting opinions and it could leave the staff second guessing their judgment for no reason.
Sometimes it is good to have opinions from various people but it can also be a bad thing too, in the end opinions are like butt holes, everyone has one and everyone thinks theirs smells the nicest.
