Default Moderator Election

I volunteer right now, right here to be a "mod," which I assume means converstation moderator.

If I'm picked, I will not delete or edit without good reason. I only have two criteria for "good reasons," as I am an incredibly busy man, and totally lazy:

1: The indiscriminate posting of porn - like that jerk on Halloween. Or bomb building schematics. Or nuclear secrets. Anything that could get Avalon sued or put under FBI investigation (he he), or multi-post giant ding-dongs will not be moved to "Off Topic," they will be deleted permanently.

2. Personal threats. "I'm gonna' track you down with my special computer shixt, your IP, and kill you man" will not be tolerated. A personal threat is a life ban - no second chances. And we might even call the cops . . . Disagreement, if expressed rationally and non-violently, will be self-regulating.

Who else will nominate me? I said I wanted to run for POTUS, maybe Avalon is the first step? Huh?

I will only accept the position if over 30% of Avalonians give thier "yay." To have one third of Avalon support my bid for moderator would be a true honor, and I hope to have it.

Thanks

Two questions, when and how much will you be on? (day or night) and where is your devotion? here or another site? (you know what I mean), I like you and if I have to pick my mod I'm going to be very careful! Yes I was born at night, but it wasn't last night! I mean no disrespect but I must be sure on what I'm voting for, so give me your speech, HaHa lol! Main reason is I thought you were leaving per your goodbye thread.

I will answer your questions honestly:

1. I am on pretty much everyday, I do a general thread check at least once an hour, and sometimes, when I am engaged in conversation, I'm on pretty constantly. If given a specific time to be "on" - a "shift" if you will - to carry out moderating duties - if by that term we mean conversation moderating - I will be there.

2. My devotion is to many things, but I am guessing that you mean "Astrovera or Avalon." Well, I say, why not both? If I serve as a "mod" here, cannot I exchange ideas elsewhere too? There are good people over there, and I guess now is a good time to say that if I get 30% of the vote (although I guess technically 33% is fairer) I will personally lobby for the lifting of the ban for all previously banned members. One more shot. You violate my rules, you're out. Keep it civil, you're in. Some, however, I feel won't come back to Avalon, and I feel that they are good people. As long as Astrovera is open, and the good people there are talking, well, I'll probably check in and say hi. Mod duties are mod duties, personal choices are personal choices - I think a lot of folks here are upset because that fine line has been crossed so many times.

I hope that answers your questions, and I hope you vote for me Dantheman.

Who picked porn site? That was supposed to be joke!

Thanks hc, that answers everything, and I have nothing against Astrovera as much as a couple people want to think lol!, yes mod duties are indeed mod duties, and should not be shared elsewhere.You've got my vote and I trust your judgement!, not because of what you said here, but I take all past exchanges and this into consideration. Can I swear now g...d d..m....t, s...t, f....k, oops nevermind. Just being me!...I'll recommend you to those I know!

Thank you Dantheman, although I will not advocate lifting the restrictions on open vulgarities. The restrictions force us to be more creative with our keyboards, eh?

Aw, fxck it. Just vote for me.

No, Orion11, you chose number two because you have seen my posts, understand my positions on things, and don't want me to be a moderator.

That's cool - that is what a vote is all about! At least you voted - I wonder how many hard-core Avalonians will participate in choosing their own moderator?

you are very wise, but i dont agree with 100% of anyones posts really.. not even my own. lol
so thats nothing if i disagree with something, we all do it...
i still think your cool and very intelligent.

if i really thought you were a "dillweed".. i wouldnt have chosen that answer and then told what i chose. lol

"Bringing you back to the top"

A policy I will argue against amongst the other moderators and the administrators.

Unless two threads are merged, and the author of one wants to give recognition to the author who's post was merged with the title post.

Sometimes I can be a terrible human being, I beseech thee, oh great Dean Plejaren, to forgive me.

Just so you know, had I been able to post a NB at the end of the last sentence, I would have posted four of them.

That was not sarcasm, it was an attempt at humor. I am sorry if it turned you off.

I respect your decision, and appreciate your vote.

Everyone here who can should vote.

Hey DeanPlejaren, I'll gladly speak for those who won't, or can't, I think everybody has had enough of your BS! Enough is enough and go somewhere else! I've heard the mods try and deal with you, I've heard Bill try and deal with you, don't leave, just get the h..ll out! God, when are you gonna get the clue! You don't make any sense and need to listen to yourself sometimes! Just my opinion, but lose the swastika, I mean, would you wear that into a job interview? Would you wear that walking down the street?, Would you wear that on your hat?, C'mon man, first impression dude! History circus just ignore him please!

Not sure what you're getting at - sorry.

But thanks for the vote - even though it was against me.

Strange, I always imagined that a vote was a private choice, how were you able to find out that I voted against you then,

Sounds a wee bit dodgy to me.

Can you tell me how you found out..

I'm afraid that being a moderator is too much to handle, no matter which site you're at.
