I think just 1 more is good. Dan2 is around occasionally and Chris pops in too- I don't want to overmod it.

If it came down to a tie or close, first of all I'd want to make sure the people involved are interested (so if you aren't, speak up) and then either vote off or do something where 1 is it for a month and then the other... Or for certain boards- I don't want to punch a gift horse in the mouth...

Were it this time last year I would have loved to help out. Alas, work and thesis and more work and mortage payments and copious amounts of snu snu take up much of my time these days. Best of luck to the guys who take the job though. I don't envy the extra responsibility.  :clap

I would've loved to have had you :( 

and what about me? *Sniffles*

It requires whatever you'd put into it. It would be best to be available for a period of time regularly so if something important comes up, you're available to jump in and help.  So someone who only can get online on weekends for example probably isn't best.  But it's not like you have to be on all the time- you need to know what's going on, who's who, and be able to make good, informed decisions.

So if you're interested, let us know how often you come on and about how much time you are here as it is. I would only add 1ish hour total per week to that number honestly.

Prime- what would you say?

Of that list I would probably cast my vote to either RobbyPants or veekie. Slightly leaning towards veekie, because I know him better. No offense to any other candidate.

Out of curiosity, is this new moderator going to be an all-around one or will he only look after a certain board?

I think general purpose, we don't need that much added moderation in particular boards, PbP only needed a mod because theres regular subforum opening/moving going on and every now and then one of Endarire's threads in Min-Max really should go in Deliberations.

Thats about it for regular mod duties. Other than reports, which I dunno about.

And the things it reflects in, like water or glass, can all be broken, right? Since the moon you see in the sky is just being reflected in the heavens, if you tear open the heavens it's easy to break it~"

Guys on the list are all good blokes. But my votes go to Sinfire, Agita and Veekie due to interacting with them more often.

I don't frequent this forums that much; but I have come to respect SinFire Titan, Agita and Veekie so my vote goes to them.

I could go either way.  If you end up with multiple mods, you can always put several in charge of different boards.

All around I think, we don't have that much activity that we really need a dedicated mod to subareas. The only areas with such levels of activity are Min-max and PbP.

I'll do what I can around Min/Max since I'm there 90% of my time.

Personally I would say an all-around one would be a good choice. We don't have that many moderators around and it would rid us of possible toe-stepping. Now when I think of it, there are only two boards, the one for whining and the one for PbPs, that actually require moderation at any rate.

In any case, I would volunteer simply, because I have time and experience about moderation, but I think someone, who is not quite as disrespected should definitely pick up the mantle! (Go veekie)

Well, there are those few times when the debates spread into the Homebrew/DnD Deliberations forum, but that was back when we had the Logic Fail threads going.

Well, every now and then some people get it into their heads that you can be playing D&D wrong. :P

Which you can of course, but the key part is if the players enjoyed it.Thats the right and wrong of it.

The other side of moderation, the one that is probably even more important, is to have someone who I fully trust and I know has our back.  I'd be setting the person up with some power that is fairly hefty, and of course it's in my head that if the person is a wacka-doo, they could really fuck us over. 

So of the nominees, could you all send me a PM first of all to say if you're interested (some posted here already, but still send the PM) and talk to me about your trustworthiness. 

I also want someone who is a "culture" fit- in any operation, personality fit is almost more important than skill set in terms of a working relationship.  So talk to me about that too.
