Weekly moderator election thread.


Recommended Posts

I play favorites, and I'm wildly inconsistent. I'm a total martinet about some rules but ignore others. I'm extremely irritable and have a temper and take a lot of stuff personally. I hold grudges forever and I build them up without telling people so when they make one minor mistake I hold them accountable for all the other mistakes they don't even know they've made.

I've never even heard of the concept of grace; I never assume a rules violation is an honest mistake. 

I've been out of work since Hornfans went under but I'll make this place great the same way they made Hornfans great around 2007.

If you have an immoderator position open, I'm your man.

I've been on message boards since the dark days of BBSes and USEnet. I remember the internet from before the Eternal September. II'veposted some of the dumbest things ever posted on the internet... and left them there.

And if you make me moderator, I solemnly swear (crosses fingers) that I'll never do the job more than half-assed nor sober.

In short: OU sucks.

Ok. I've come up with a better solution. We are holding an election for moderator for 1 week. It's going to rotate. 

Top rep for the week is moderator for a week. 

Choose wisely first mod on Monday.

you were so close to the right answer.

YOu just cranked up the biggest e-voting ballot box stuffers this side of Brazos County.  They'll be working in shifts on that bullshit.

i mean, seriously- who *doesn't* want to see what it would be like if i was a mod for a week? Zero joke, who doesn't want to see that? It's one week. What's the worst that can happen???

With all of that said, I think i'd actually be a pretty boring mod who probably wouldn't even do so much as suspend anyone during my week in power. I'd be all fair and consistent, truly living up to the spirit of shaggy/surly by letting people say what they think and feel, short of blatant trolling and outright racism/death threats. Still, there's only one way to find out...

gonna be nothing but football board posters. the most thought provoking, well-thought-out, well researched, unanimously celebrated post on the hoops board will get 10 pos reps. you write CJK5H on the football board and you're at +37 by the end of the day. We should have people from all boards post here in this forum announcing that they want to be in the running. State your case, take your rep (pos or neg), and handle it like a man. one man's opinion anyway.

Ok, I'll do it. You're welcome.

see, this is the thing. everyone likes RL. seriously, nobody here has a bad thing to say about the guy. hell, i've met him- rally jaeger for the MF win. RL is a cool, laid back, chill, funny dude. he is the exact opposite of what you want in a one week mod. fuck that noise.

you want crazy; you want psycho; you want unpredictable; hell, immamac can always pull the plug whenever he wants anyway, right? real talk, i wish grendel could be here to moderate, with a dedicated thread for him to explain in excruciating bilingual detail exactly why he banned someone. if anyone can find him and bring him here he has my vote.

now then, since finding grendel is a long shot, i have a few nominations to make:

futureman

ctj

hugo

spy

insert insane CR poster here

 

any one of these people would be much more entertaining than anyone here who is actually popular or well liked. these are people with personality; people with conviction; people who stand out from the crowd; these are the people we should be considering. otherwise, why are we doing this?

Why not Dr. Beeper/Rex?

No, no, no...See Dr. Beeper is a African-American gentlemen who also works in the oil industry in Dallas.  Rex hasn't been on this site in a long time.

ME ME ME!!! 

Because I once got banned on Hornfans by Huckleberry.

Its a tough job, I was a super mod on a boating site years ago.  You will have a handful of users constantly reporting posts.  You know its going to be a BS post but still have to check it out to see if its something bad like porn (which google didnt like).

This used to be a thread accepting mod applications now we are electing a mod for a week. First election Monday top rep earner for the week gets elected.

Choose wisely 

So you're handing over moderator duties to whomever posts nude pics of the supermodel he's banging?

Honestly, does that sound wise?
