Join the team!

Moist (qqaazza) is stepping down as the ruler of Qqaazzakhstan. JFF and Open Mic will need a new overlord.

If you think you would be interested in being a moderator for the Just For Fun and Open Mic fora, throw cookies, cakes, your hat, turnip, whatever you have into the ring.

Eligibility requirements include being a member for at least 6 months, and having at least 100 posts that are not in the Just For Fun or Welcome Lounge fora. You also cannot run with an active, current, warning.

This is the timeline for this election:

Wednesday, 2 January 2013 to Wednesday, 9 January 2013: Nominations.

Wednesday, 9 January 2013 to Sunday, 13 January 2013: Dedicated Q&A period.

Sunday, 13 January 2013 to Sunday, 20 January 2013: Voting!

Potential candidates will need to submit a brief bio to me that will be included in the election thread before the voting begins.

Good luck!

PS. Keep in mind that deciding to run means running for both forums, not just one of them.

Bah, why am I always so tempted to run... :P

*notes that this is not me saying I'm running* (At least not at the moment... JFF and Open Mic do seem a little more like my ideal forums than some of the others I've considered running for... hrmm. :ph34r:)

Weird. I somehow knew qaz would be stepping down (just a sense I had... Or something), yet... I'm still surprised.

I would absolutely run again... This is hopefully third time the charm... This one will also be a slower pace moderating with additional chat moderating.

I'll throw in my Robe of Humour... Should make the wearer seem funnier... :D

Bios away...

please keep in mind that you need to be a member for at least 6 months on AVEN and have 100 posts outside of Just For Fun and Welcome Lounge.

(I hate this new quoting system, i'm just gonna say it right now.)

If i've fit the recommendations this time, then sure i'll throw my name in the hat. :P

As i myself can't really tell how many posts i've made outside of those two areas (can someone show me btw so i know), last time i couldn't find it either. How can you tell? Then i take it only mods and admods that can check post logs. Although, for future reference we should be able to check our own, so i don't post here (like i did before) and say i'd love to run for mod when i don't even have the right number of posts. All i can see is my overall post count, rather than posts made outside of chosen areas. Also, it's been six months technically if i do say so myself. Yay! I've been here for six months... err technically speaking that is, anyway CAKE! :cake:

 

Spoiler

 

EDIT:

Firstly, I can see you haven't been a member for 6 months yet, so you're not able to run until January 9th 2013. 

Crap! I just noticed this. ;_; 

Heh, well maybe we can wait a few days before giving me a chance to run... lol

Nominations will be open the day you're eligible, so yes we can consider you running for mod already if you want to, though we should check your post count. Admods don't have any special feature to do it, so you can do it yourself.

  1. Click the advanced search button (close to the Search bar up there)
  2. Look for posts by author (put your name)
  3. Select all forums except JFF, Arcade and Welcome Lounge (to select more forums, keep ctrl pressed)
  4. Count the posts you have (you can count how many posts there are for each page, and how many pages you have)

Let us know!

107? There are 25 posts on a single page. There are 9 pages of posts of yours outside JFF and welcome lounge. That's how I got 217.

Are you sure you're willing to give up your spot on the PT if you win?

Plus, the search would have to be viewed in post view as people often post multiple comments in one thread, the calculation would be 25 times the number of pages minus one as the last page would contain less entries. Only problem is the search is limited to 40 pages, but that usually indicates the user has well over the post requirements, interesting nonetheless. ;)

Are you sure you're willing to give up your spot on the PT if you win?

Indeed, I am.
Wouldn't that invoke another PT election? Otherwise shouldn't members that hold other positions should step down from the other post before running for a new one?

AVEN officers would need to step down after they win a new post, not before running. If Striv wins then we would need a new election for the PT.
