Re: Election of Moderators

What is the real reason behind this thread - is there someone you want to nominate and vote for, or do you think that this is the only way that you will become a mod? Trust me, the latter is not true - you were supposed to be in the ACC tournament but I asked GWH to take you out because of your age.

As two other posters have said, this is a private forum, it is not a democracy and the owners of this forum can do whatever the hell they want.

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

That's how it's done now. When admins or posters feel there's a need for more moderation in a certain forum, admins choose mods based on who they'd think would do the best job, as with a lot of things this process can be a bit hit and miss, but it's in the interest of admins to choose the best person possible and obviously not everyone can be pleased with the decision. Since I'm new to being an admin myself I haven't been through the selection process of new mods yet, but I have the basic idea how it works and what I would be looking for in a new mod. Making the mod selection process a popularity contest would very likely not end up well.

And if you're so keen on democracy, are there really cases out there, where people, who enforce rules are chosen by elections?

Now if you have any further questions, only reasonable questions please, then feel free to PM me. I am closing this thread now.
