    Re: WTH Election Time Already?

    Since I think they all did fabulous jobs this time around I nominate:

    Jonas
    Mdar
    Schezar
    and
    Etelka
    (I'd nominate you too, Nine, but you've already been covered. :P)

    I don't know if it's the time of year, the stuff going on in the news keeping us otherwise busy, the mods themselves, or some vicissitude of fate but it's been nice and quiet drama-wise on the enforcement front with this team so if they're willing to serve again, I'd like to see them do so.

    Re: WTH Election Time Already?

    I'm game for another 6 months. I would also like to nominate Lysandor and Alikat even though I suspect both will decline.

    Considering Ali has repeatedly said she doesn't want to be nominated and has asked repeatedly to NOT be nominated, I'd say yeah she will decline.

    I know, but she's still very worthy of it IMO. Maybe polite persistence will bring her around someday. Probably not, but I do live in a rose tinted world most of the time.

    Or you could just respect her stated wish.

    I believe the point of the nomination system is to express who we think would be best for the position. If the nominee is unwilling that's OK, but there is value in expressing support for those who are worthy. The truism that those most worthy of power are the ones who want it least applies here. If we have to agree to disagree on this, that's fine. I have my opinion, and it's not going to change in this matter. You're not required to share it, but I hope it's not overly offensive.

    Given that this is way more discussion than necessary I'll agree to disagree and drop it.

    I definitely second Delores Mulva. One of the most even-tempered and respectful discussants that this board has.

    Re: WTH Election Time Already?

    I just noticed I was nominated, and respectfully decline. I don't believe I have the correct temperament for leading anything heavier then group story-telling, but I appreciate the nomination.

    I nominate Maledict and Vdou.

    I would nominate Ikeya, but he's in China for 6 weeks.

    Re: WTH Election Time Already?

    I nominate myself and SD just to make it interesting.

    *edit*
    I think my mother's dessicated corpse might have made about as good a moderator as some I've run into over the years, and certainly much better than her nominator would turn out to be; too bad she declined :P

    Also, I accept.

    Was going to decline until I saw the second nomination. Sure, what the hell, I got roped into VP of my strata council tonight, let's make it two for two!
