    Will you consider me as a candidate (assuming a lot of people don't scream NO)? I promise to do my best to be fair and impartial, even with those members with whom I disagree or haven't always gotten along with in the past. I can also say that several members have told me in the past that they see me as a person who tries to consider all sides of an issue and as someone who is tries to seek out the middle/common ground. @yama once told me that he respected me for trying to understand all sides of an issue, even though we don't always agree on certain issues such as politics. I know I had some moments in the past where things got contentious with me and a few people, but I think I've grown out of that and I don't really have any desire to ruffle feathers or piss anyone off. If enough people say they like the idea of moderator Anax, then I will be happy to send an official PM your way. I understand being a mod means somewhat putting myself above petty shows of ego and I am more than willing to take myself out of that; there's a good chance my average daily post count will actually drop if I become a Mod. I think this would be a good move for both the forum and myself. I won't let personal friendships or any animosity get in the way of treating all members as fairly as possible when carrying out my moderator duties, and I'll do my best to form a strong relationship with other mods and non-mods with whom I haven't always seen eye-to-eye in the past.

    What sort of daily hours would this entail for moderator duties and such? How many moderator positions are open at this point? I suppose I should also brush up on the rules in case they quiz me
    I like you for mod and I think you are one of the best options on this site. You care about justice and fairness and dont have any extreme or narrow minded posting habits around here and I can say you are able to be debated not argued so to speak. You are a friendly and approachable guy who I think most would feel safe and at ease to go to if there are any issues. i will happy vouch for you as mod.

    Dreamer would be good. Xann.. that would be fun, I think he'd be more fair than some people would expect him to be.

    There is most definitely a level-headedness about you that I feel any moderator absolutely needs for when things go south. I have no doubt you would be fair in your deliberations. Second, everyone goes through issues and grows into a maturity of their own. I haven't been around as long as you have so I can't comment on your previous interactions but so long as someone has genuinely made peace with their past and owned up to it, there is no way I could ever hold that against them.

    If you're interested in the role, please send me a PM elaborating on your interest. Feel free to suggest others too. Thank you!!
    I do not want to nor have I ever sought to become a mod. I think that is in every ones best interest.

    thank you for your support. And thank you to everyone else who has vouched for me so far. If selected I will do my best not to let anyone down and to approach any situation in a level-headed and impartial manner.

    I think you'd be good for the job. What I've seen of you suggests you're agreeable and don't settle into petty high school level politics.

    I relish the good moments I had in the past, but I hardly ever revisit the past as I'm already onto the next exciting adventure

    Petty high school politics is one such thing I am glad to have left FAR behind. I was always a floater kid anyways so I was sort of left out of the politics myself thankfully!

    And thank you! That means a lot to me to hear.

    @highlander @Coriolis

    From what I have seen, I would support @Anaximander for mod - I have never really interacted with him, but reading his posts, he has struck me as very fair-minded, good-hearted and level-headed.

    I could not be more strongly against @Xann being made moderator - that would be a terrible mistake. If he is made moderator, I will leave this forum, and demand that every post, pm, rep, and other communication I have had here be permanently deleted.
