Okay, it's time for the decisive vote :bounce:

Finally we can bring this long and exhausting process to an end :D
To make things short, the nominees are (lol, I feel like I am announcing the oscars... :cool: ) :

Pinky :worship: Doubtie :worship: Graham :worship: and Joe :worship:

The vote will close after the weekend, so make sure that you have cast your vote by then! :wavey:




... the next poll I start will definitely be Dani-related for a change :rolleyes: ;)

I voted Joe, he's been a moderator for 5 years if I remember well, that was the deciding factor for me.

Regardless of who you vote for, make sure it's because you think that person will do a good job, not because they're the most popular. Being a moderator can be a PITA: You are required to read every thread, several times a day, and then make the judgement calls on what needs to go. Over on the GlockTalk page I moderate the joke forum, called "The Lighter Side," and there's no foul language tolerated there at all. Imagine how tedious it can be, making sure everyone stays inside the rules.

..Joe

Well, I don't care about popularity, I care about getting the job done and that requires experience. If you're used to be a moderator, then you could do it here. :)

I don't it's going to be very difficult here, though. Rather easy and fun. If it's one of us CPers everything will be smooth. :)

oh no, I saw that question coming... :eek: I don't know :confused:

I personally think not more than two, but I believe we should discuss that when the vote is over... :)

graham said that we should let the person who is mod. decide whether or not they want back-up... good idea i say!

that sounded like we're real politicians--trying to be as visible to people as possible!

actually, me and moogie share the same thoughts on this whole mod thing! we don't want to have one and we don't want the job! but since it's necessary we have to give way. we just organized this whole poll thing since we don't think that it would appear fair if one of the candidates is in charge....coz he/she will already have a head start. so there!
......and for crying out loud....i'm lazy! why would i want to be mod? that's just too much work!

I vote for Graham : always there, and very good job during "l'Affaire Peterson"...


(btw, maybe one day a Haddock's story to relate l'Affaire Peterson...)

LOL, it's still one hour left graham! You wish :p

But what a turn of events in the last few hours :eek:


I think it's pretty cool that it was such a tough vote. At least that can already be said :cool:

hello everyone,

i thought this board was doing really well as a 'self-moderated' board...do we really need a moderator...?

or how about having a different moderator for each month. this way there is sharing of the responsibilities...that would be my vote

It's 6.45 in Europe, 5.45 here and 4.45 according to wtaworld which is an hour slow. Which 6.45 are we using, hopefully not the US one!! :eek: I can't stand the tension any more and with Dani just about to start, I think I might have a coronary!! :eek:

still think if we need a moderator, we should have a diff. one each month. IMHO

GrahamD
May 26th, 2003, 06:10 PM
To be honest, unless we get another Petersen, the moderator will have little to do, so I don't really see the need to start changing things around. With one mod, everyone knows where they stand instead of wondering who's in charge this month!

May 26th, 2003, 06:12 PM
Yeah I agree with that, not much stuff to do really.

moogle san
May 26th, 2003, 06:25 PM
yeah, I think changing would just complicate things unnecessarily. whoever becomes mod won't have much to do.
Furthermore, I completely trust all of those four so changing is IMO not necessary :)

I agree, i missed the whole 'peterson' episode ( and am probably glad i did) but self moderation...:) may be the best way to go.

so graham won.......congrats, man! now you have to pm the admin (i think) to tell them that you are the chosen one. ;) i mean, you don't just become mod in an instant, right?

I've sent a PM to Rollo (as he was the one who instigated this) and have asked how this now gets progressed. I'll be back with a more personal message once it's all been sorted out.

They'll have to wait a little bit longer until it has been made official. I'm still trying to get this sorted out with admin. When I have done that, I will put a little message out to everyone and all will be revealed then!!

Sorry guys, but as I've explained before, only amanda and poe have the authority to approve moderators and neither of them have been online for weeks now.

I've had the thread deleted by admin who have said that in the meantime, if there is ever a post you object to, hit the report post button to the bottom right of the thread. This will send it through to admin who will take a decision on it.

Bearing in mind I will be away from my pc for a week during Eastbourne, I'd like to ask Joe of he'd hold the fort for me please, and if there is any trouble while I'm away, to please contact carot whom I am very grateful to for dealing with this so promptly, or josh.

duh.......man, i feel so stupid now trying to bump other threads to hide peterson's when we could've just clicked the report button...........i swear i didn't see that before......took me minutes to figure out what graham's talking about.........duh

If it happens again, I would suggest that you report it and then ignore it. It will be dealt with one way or another. And please, no more bumping. It just throws the whole board and the whole party into confusion. I understand the sentiment behind that (I even did it myself last time) but think about - the guy wants to wind everyone up, so you all go into a mad frenzy bumping every thread while he's sitting at home laughing.
