Zinnat: I assume by James you meant James S Saint, and by Dan you meant Dan~. Let me know if you meant one of the other Jameses or Dans.

Carleas,
Your assumption is absolutely right, though it was perhaps a mistake on my part by not mentioning their names properly.

with love,

Thanks James for the vote of confidence, but I'm not active enough to seriously consider being a mod.

I'll nominate James S Saint. So far, he's the only one that's indicated personal interest in the role.

Oh, mr reasonable nominated himself.

I saw the post and assumed it wasn't going to include a nomination. I stand corrected.

I'll nominate mr reasonable also, for the sheer joy of seeing someone as 'laid back' as him moderate others.

I donate the proceeds of this vote to a cause of your choosing.

Thanks but I seem to polarise duscussions, and I have enough on my plate at present.

I think there are enough people around who remember my stint a while ago, and they'd agree ... ;)

Bob and Irrelious would have been peachy with me also.

Arcturus descending would be fine too.

Dan would be interesting. I have no idea what that would be like. That might be a good thing, the not knowing, that is, might be founded on something in Dan that would stir things up, well, interestingly.

I choose that you donate it to carleas so they can have less ads and so that on top of putting up with all of us, he doesn't have to shell out the bucks to keep it running.

I'll make a new thread for voting. I'll get in touch with any nominees that haven't accepted the nomination to make sure their willing. I said 48 hours, so I'll aim to post the voting thread around 17 UTC on April 26th. I'll keep updating the OP as people get back to me.

Moreno seems to be gifted with posts in every area of the forum.
However if I ever did get voted in somehow, I would be trying my best to do the job right.

I think you have enough nominees that you can also have a "floater moderator" now to stand in and adopt the rules of whichever forum for times when the official mods are on leave. In that way the rules could get reinforced more readily and thus reduce contention escalation.

Thank you to those who have nominated me - why, I cannot begin to fathom albeit I do appreciate it - but I will have to decline. My time schedule fluctuates intermittently and aside from that I am just learning to be a friendly agnostic. I do not think that I could be so unbiased.

I nominate the little reptile - turtle.
“How can a bird that is born for joy
Sit in a cage and sing?”
― William Blake


“Little Fly
Thy summers play,
My thoughtless hand
Has brush'd away.

Am not I
A fly like thee?
Or art not thou
A man like me?

For I dance
And drink & sing:
Till some blind hand
Shall brush my wing.

If thought is life
And strength & breath:
And the want
Of thought is death;

Then am I
A happy fly,
If I live,
Or if I die”
― William Blake, Songs of Innocence and of Experience


“No bird soars too high if he soars with his own wings.”

You have made good unbiased replies. One recently to 3Sum.

You should reconsider.

Unfortunately, the nominating period ended. I'd love to accept additional nomination, but for fairness and the legitimacy of the election, I need to stick to the rules I laid out in the OP.

And once you arrive at the result are you going to further vet the candidate for how they have posted on your website? Perhaps checking for style in how they are able to stick to the pertinence of the topic, or how often they have imparted less then philosophical rigor in their remarks, or will it be example of a popularity contest?

in other words; to live as audaciously as possible while drawing the least attention. or at best, something vaguely similar.
