Somebody tell me why so many people are jumping onto this bandwagon of answering questions from all-comers? I don't get it -- do you really think it's going to help you? Harthan's thread was just him and KB shooting the shit, Milenko ran himself into about 16 different corners, and J4L proved just about nothing. You're not actually answering any questions, but let's just put that aside -- what questions are there out there that you actually have to answer? I can think of one: Why are you fit to win this election? Thus far, I've seen one or two guys actually give a concrete answer. Half the people in this election are just in it to go through the motions, just because they want to try to connect on that last-ditch Hail Mary. I get it, hell, I respect it. If you're willing to devote time to moderating, more power to you... but don't waste everybody's time if you KNOW you're just in this for shits. There's a tier of people that ACTUALLY fit the criteria, at least somewhat, they're the people everybody wants to see. Don't get me wrong, it's fun to see [Generic Candidate 101] run up a wall trying to convince us that he's for it, commitment is half the battle, but if you legitimately can't back any of that up... what's the point? I've said it before and I'll say it again -- I think I stand a chance. Coco has rabid support, the ABC Party has lots of members (I still think their voter turnout will STUN them), Harthan's a former mod, etc. There's some solid contenders in this thing, but I think I'm one of the best in this contest. I post consistently, I post quality, and I'm willing to put the time in. I'm running for Wrestling mod, because I care about those sections and I can be a solid contributor. I'm not going to give you empty promises, because in my year and a half on these forums, I've done lots of stuff, had lots of fun, but I've also contributed quite a bit. Over that time, I gained an understanding of what a moderator needs to know, of what he needs to do. Any single trained monkey can press two buttons and randomly delete posts and whatnot, what separates me from those people and puts me past that is my judgement. All the moderators understand what it takes and I think I do too. Being a moderator isn't about the bold name, it's not about being "better" than anybody -- I understand that now. Being a moderator is about going out and doing a job, about keeping this place running smoothly. Lots of people don't understand this. I guarantee that some of the people running in this election just want a seat at the big boy's table, they feel entitled to have it... they've got it all wrong. This is a job, one that I am more than ready to do. I want to step into the Wrestling sections, wherever KB and Slyfox see fit (if I win) and do my job. You have to keep the section clean, you have to sift through spam and whatnot, but you HAVE to keep the section running. You have to be able to differentiate between what should and should not be in your section and that is MUCH harder than it seems. Harthan and I had a discussion about this very thing, but you have to be able to differentiate between what should or should not be in your section. It's not all about posting a lot, but it's also not about ruling with an iron fist. I get that, I honestly think I have a solid combination of traits to be a moderator. I'm not just some random regular in the Wrestling sections, I'm a guy who is always working to do his best. That's my two cents. I answered just about every question I should in one simple post. I don't need to waste your time and beat around the bush, I got straight to it. I appreciate that the other candidates all tried to get their information out there, from all the parties, I really do. It told me a lot about who wants to win this and who treats this as a joke, I'm sure I'm not the only one, either.
