Nominating other members seems to be a terrible idea. In another timeline, the likes of Sherri and motel rooms could have been mods if enough peoples’ opinions were taken into consideration.
In the spirit of nominating though I know of some who definitely shouldn’t be a mod, well mainly just me. I don’t know who I’d actually recommend either. I think there may be some good candidates but who knows if they’d actually want or be able to do the job. I used to think Snake of Eden’s mod status made sense though so maybe I’m completely wrong in this regard.
Sorry for wasting peoples’ time by using this thread to berate myself again.
Sherri as a mod, eh? Ara ara.
I think being a mod is hard and stressful work. You'll ban someone and people will complain, you'll not ban someone and people will complain, you have to write warnings, you have to explain why you did or didn't ban or warn someone, you have to check the forums regularly and can't take a sweet three week vacation. You'll also have to spend five hours thinking if "I like hot people like I like coffee, in a cup in liquid form" breaks the rules or not.
I agree it shouldn't be a popularity contest nor should you nominate someone just because you're friends with them. I still recall when on one forum some guy was a friend of the mods/admins, got modded against his will, the guy then started complaining "I didn't want to be modded, I only had 50 posts and have been a member only for a few months! Besides, I told you idiots I hate this forum and that I'm gonna leave this site! De-mod me right now!".
Wait, was Snake a mod? I didn't remember that.
Don't worry. Yours was a good post!
