? S&P Mod Spot Opening - Now Taking Nominations ?
    #3778910 - 02/14/05 04:51 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

So with trendal recently stepping down due to the many obligations of life that we all face from time to time, we are considering adding some fresh blood to this forum.  So here's how this is going to work.
  • All users may nominate up to two people that they feel would make great moderators for S&P
  • A user may self-nominate him or herself, so long as they explain why exactly they desire to become a moderator
There is no limit to how many nominations a single user can receive, however the ultimate decision of who will become a mod will still be the responsibility of the mods and admins.  This thread is designed to solicit user opinion which we will use to make our final decision, so please leave as much relevant information as you can. 

Now get crackin' :whip:

For the record i think Swami is a Saint in disguise, although he will obviously deny this. Maybe its just my dellusion?

Unlike you, I believe in the capacity of those not blinded by emotion and irrational thought patterns to carry out their duties more fairly than most.

Agreed Swami is fair, logical, and rational (although at times too rational)

He is the best man for the job in my opinion. Right On Swami  :thumbup: :bananamusic:

I don't think anyone on this forum thinks irrationaly. It's just that we believe in different premises and some make larger leaps of faith and some smaller.

What you know you can't explain,

You've felt it your entire life.
That there's something wrong with the world.
You don't know what it is, but it's there....
Like a splinter in your mind...
Driving you mad.

Definition : Faith
2. Belief that does not rest on logical proof or material evidence.

So by one definition of faith, faith is illogical.

Well, I have to ask what characteristics does it take to be a mod...? 

(I can see this thread being the topic of MUCH debate...!)  :grin:

How do you know? i personally find that his rational skepticism has allowed me to view others (including my own) posts in a more realistic light, which has helped me to progress spiritually.

He shows BS for BS, although his methods may seem unauthodox, and sometimes rational to the point of absurdidty, without him i feel this forum would be lost in an ocean of fluffiness. In essence he is essential to this forum.

Good suggestions! I'll second this. If not these two, then Swami should be next in line....
