Yes, we could all learn a thing or two from our friend TwinHamster. An apology can solve any problem. Isn't that right?

In that vein, I'd just like to say I'm sorry to all the idiots I've offended over the years and I promise to make my insults on a higher plane intellectually in the future so as to avoid offending the wit-challenged.

This isn't exactly the first time Giz has apologized and promised to change.

Oh. Well that explains a lot actually. And all the apologies sound like this?

I'm not saying make me a mod and see if I change. I'm saying see if I change, and make me a mod next "election" if I do.

I don't exactly want to think up a whole argument for them, but if I had to nominate anyone else for Moderatorship (this time around), I'd say Komera's fairly level headed, and her avatar contest on the Art Forum has certainly generated significant interest.

Camdog's bookclub has likewise generated a lot of interest, he's certainly been around for awhile, and the only bad thing I could say about him would be that he might disappear again tommorow.

Jabber wouldn't be half-bad.

Bena's a pretty smart guy who is mature and responsible enough to be a moderator, and you guys are blowing his comment about Lucier WAY out of proportion. He knows a lot about game design, he's made some pretty good posts, and he's friendly.

I thought you'd been gone for a year or two, and had just recently returned. I could be mistaking you for someone else, though.

Now there's a guy who I haven't seen in forever.

I don't think jabber is nearly around enough or well known to be a mod (If he's around, I hardly notice him), and if Bena were to become a mod, you know there are going to be certain people who will not be happy at all with his position, and with the reactions to his comment towards Lucier, you can be sure he'll make another similar comment and another similar reaction will result.

The best mod would be someone who doesn't have any real negative energy directed towards them. I doubt many here have unhappy feelings towards people like Inferior Minion, Friend and Fenrir-Lunaris.

I really don't think that Bena's going to say anything like that, but he just seems a little too busy to be a mod.

Everybody has some negative energy directed towards them.

Yes, but can you name people who have that energy towards our current mods?

I personally have never really liked Orchy. It's really hard to say what I'd like to say without breaking the "No flaming/being abusive" rule for the election, but I always felt when he was moderating the Art Forum that if your drawing wasn't done in an Anime/Manga style, and was even at all trying to be funny, that he wasn't going to give it a chance.

OOIA: popularity should never be the deciding factor. That mentality is what got us into trouble before.

Please cite an example of where a mod was elected for popularity and this somehow "got us into trouble."

I've said before that Fenrir is the mod level-headed mod we've had, and he'd certainly do a fine job with a more important position.

This is another example of why Fenrir is a good mod; he turned the art forum from a place where everyone had to be deadly serious to a place where someone could actually have fun.

If you mean popular as in celebrity popular, I didn't mean anything like that, but a mod should at least be well known enough on top of being a good candidate. No one is going to vote for someone they hardly know.

Alrighty, good idea. (except that there isn't going to be a "vote")

Phc, I said the mentality of popularity has gotten us into trouble before. I know the original wording isn't precise, but this is what I meant.
