I don't really think the nominations were visible enough (a thread would have been perfect; I don't read the announcements because they change so infrequently). All of the choices are good, but a vote for sean is a vote for freedom!

I think an announcement should also have a GD thread to it...I had no idea there were official nominations going on

I had no idea either. I would have nominated a google spider bot :p

In honor of our former moderator, whose name appears in the credits of Napolean Dynamite several times, I feel I should say something, and quote Pedro:

If you vote for me, all of your wildest dreams will come true!

I'm afraid I have no skit.

We apologize that so few people saw the nominations announcement. The moderators have decided that we were looking for very specific criteria in a moderator in this election. For example, they have to be in US/Canadian time zones and been on the board for at least 18-24 months.

We have spent the last week combing through names and deciding if people would be suitable nominees. However, due to the confusion we are willing to look at more names. If you have someone you think should be up there you may PM me and I present the name to the moderators. We will hold this extended nomination for 24 hours.

For the time being polls will remain closed in the event that we need to add candidates.

He's the one that turned it down, RoD. Why would he want it back? :P

Although, I agree that he's pretty much the best mod ever.

Please be sure to submit all nominations via PM to be sure I get them.

I believe this thread is getting too long. Especially that everyone is redundantly speaking the same thoughts.

I've split this thread off from the voting thread to keep that thread clean in case we decide that no more candidates are necessary and wish to simply reopen the poll after the 24 hour window for nominations expires.

Why the hell aren't you nominated? Not going to bother with a PM, but if you don't have any reservations, I think I'd like to see you as a mod.

same here, just checked the user cp and found that i had a huge neg rep there..i guess that this is what one gets for speaking out against the inefficiencies on the board..good going...keep up the dictatorship...and ya thanx again to whoever gave me the neg reps..now we are not even allowed to voice our opinions against the people who run this board..

Ah,

Glad to see the thread was split.

Why the hell aren't you nominated? Not going to bother with a PM, but if you don't have any reservations, I think I'd like to see you as a mod.Well, RoD is correct according to:
"- have been active on the site for at least 18-24 months" -kermi3

In my opinion, there are very few active members that meet the criteria.

On another note:
"This election is not intended to be a referendum on Govtcheez." -webmaster
"We will hold this extended nomination for 24 hours." -kermi3
"If you have someone you think should be up there you may PM me and I present the name to the moderators." -kermi3

We should be spending our 24 hours looking for additional candidates rather than forcing the election the wrong way.
