The times, they are a-changin... finally. You, HBH, have spoken and we hear you. We understand your wants and complaints and we are more than willing to address them. Now I know this won't be a traditional debate, but what better place to put a thread where you can nominate and later vote for a new group of forum moderators? That's right, folks, I'm here to put your ideals into action. But this will only work if you're serious about it and we get enough support.

The guidelines are as follows:

1) This thread is for nominations only. There will be a later one posted where you can argue for/against any of the listed people. There will also be a poll posted shortly after where you can vote for the most deserving nominees (as per the argue thread).

2) You cannot, for obvious reasons, nominate yourself.

3) For each nomination you make you must put some kind of note telling why they deserve the right to moderate. If it's hard to think of one, then maybe you should rethink who you're putting up...

4) Every so often, this original post will be updated with a list of the nominees so far. It will be their responsibility to contact an admin to have them taken off if they feel they are unable to accept the "job".

5) This thread will only be open for so long, so get your opinions in while we're still allowed to listen.

6) You must have been a member for at least half a year (6 months) in order to nominate someone else. This ensures that you've been around long enough to have a general idea as to who is deserving of the position.

7) All nominees must have at least 100 posts. A moderators job is to know the forum and be active in it.

8) You can only nominate a person once. That's all it takes to get him on the list. If you have an argument for or against the person, save it for later.

Remember, these are the people that you are voting into a position of power. So please don't take this as a joke to nominate someone stupid because you think it's funny. This is your chance to get what you want as a community rather than having it shoved down your throat. This is your chance to change. I wish you... I wish us the best of luck.

Nominees
COM - Respectfully declined.
spyware - Cheese has spoken.

COM

Why?

Fair, rigid and smart. I believe, with the right administrative rights, this guy can do a lot.

If you need more reasons just search for some of his posts and you'll see why we need him.

I nomminate:
Spyware


Why:

Main reason is he has to be one of the most active forum user on the site. Even though people do not always like his style Spy is usually correct in what he says.

What more do we needed other than a mod who is clear, consice and scares of users who would never last here.

Well thats my two cents...

Spyware, he already has the skills required to make n00bs run home screaming.

On a more serious note I have to agree he's one of the most active members and contributers of the site.

Spyware for sure. He's pretty much a mod already anyway, just with less privileges.

ynori7.

He makes good post. Has a great history and will try to help when he can. He is pretty active and I think he would make a great mod overall.


Debugging is what programmers do to beta software to make it take up more room on your hard drive if it is running too efficiently.

Thanks for the nominations, but, I urge you to change your vote as soon as you realize Cheese won't give me administrative rights.

I'm breaking this rule by nominating yours31f.

Why:

He knows the forums pretty well, he has been around the block a few times, and he has excellent judgement. He's the best at being mean in the nicest way. Rather than make people feel like shit for being dumbasses, he would educate them in the art of forum posting.

6) You must have been a member for at least half a year (6 months) in order to nominate someone else. This ensures that you've been around long enough to have a general idea as to who is deserving of the position.


I am two months short, but I have been very very active on this site, shouldn't that make up for it? If not, I understand and I hope someone else will nominate yours31f.

I don't care. I still nominate spyware.

He is active, his help may not be the most polite, but he is a grammar nazi just like I am and tends to actually motivate others when he posts. His posts tend to make people think. His approach is sometimes outspoken, but he has the knowledge to make HBH a better place.

Period.

I appreciate the fact everyone is getting involved and making nominations, in regards to spywares nominations:

he is quite right, he will not be getting any admin privs. He has a warn level for a reason. in my eyes he has a long way to go to prove his has the required maturity.

As most people, I do support spyware. However, as he himself said, it's not realistic that he'd get moderator privileges. Cheese is the owner after all and if he has an opinion against someone despite what the majority of the community that he should be caring about says, then we can't expect any more of him unfortunately.

So anyhow, there's only one nomination required anyway so all of you who shout spyware might want to put some more thought into it anyway we see it and come up with another name you might've overlooked.
Personally I've thought some about this but due to my memory and such it's a struggle to put down any motivation in words that are good enough.

Nonetheless, here's my try and I'd like to nominate clone4.
He's shown dedication to the community, he knows his way around computers, he knows his way around HBH (bloody well should considering that he wrote the FAQ). He has shown a good attitude and knows to question and give a reasonable thought out opinion, while still recognizing another person's point. This also shows his maturity to be adequate and well above some other people's. I've also never seen him post or do something honestly dumb or useless, on the other hand he's a tad insecure about what he should do or say, but he has good opinions and with some motivation, a bit of an extra kick in the ass as from spyware to speak his mind and the role of moderator to fill, I'm sure he'd make it to becoming a fine moderator.
Also, most importantly of all: I've never wanted to smack him Pfft

I would also like to nominate skathgh420.
He's been around for some time, he's helpful, active, displays a good level of maturity seeing as he's receptive to help, got enough sense to criticize things that happen on HBH and contribute his thoughts if necessary and knows to show courtesy and respect to his seniors, those who would deserve it. He also doesn't spell like a monkey snorting its own shit which impresses the hell out of me in general.
Despite (at least in my eyes) being very friendly he still seems to care enough about the users and the community to be stern enough to do what might be necessary from a moderator. Also, trying to solve something in a friendly manner might also be a good first try, there's a friendly ghost so it might go very well with a friendly moderator.

I still suppport spy but as Cheese has said this is not an option I will have to agree with the clone4 and COM nominations as they have been able to write a nice FAQ which shows there understanding of the site rules and dedication to the site.

I think that clone4, spyware, and ynori7 would all make great forum moderators. Also COM would have made a great one too but he respectfully declined. These three people each have there own aspect's that make them qualified for the position. They have all been around HBH a long time and know how things work here. Clone4 and COM made the FAQ so that show's they know how this site works inside and out. Spyware is intelligent and witty and tells it like it is, whether its nice or not, which is very important. Ynori7 is a amazing programmer with lots of logic. It is going to be very hard for me to vote for just one of the aforementioned people because they would all make great forum moderators...

Well, it seems I may have to put a case to you. Sure, if you're still adamant, I'll let it drop, by all means.
Perhaps I could be placed in a "bond", where if he abuses any given powers, both he and I are kicked out.
That's how much I trust him.


Not that I am a big person around here, really, but you could put my name on that list also. I trust spyware more than I trust any member around here. He ranks right next to System, in my opinion.

Why are we given the right to vote if in the end there will be no democracy?

spyware is one of the most active members in this community, and that's for sure Smile I login every day in HBH, even though i almost never post, and spyware helps out a lot of people.

Cheese! I don't want to start a fight against ya, since without you there would be no HBH, but please, try to be more open headed. People change and learn, and if spyware made mistakes in the past, i'm pretty sure he has learnt to correct them.

Enable democracy! Don't make votations if their results shall be manipulated!

My vote goes to spyware Smile

You misunderstand how a democratic society works. We get to vote and throw out our opinions, but the executive branch (i.e. the admis) still have the power of veto.

Well, just in case that nomination doesn't count, I'll second it.

Yours31f has put in quite a bit of effort into trying to find ways to improve this site. Regardless of whether or not you agree with his ideas, you can't deny the fact that he's more motivated than most of our current admins (no offense to any of them, they're all great). Also he's shown a remarkable amount of growth over the past year, and that should serve as a good example for many of the other members here who (as spyware pointed out in another thread) are lacking in skill and knowledge.
