Partial Liberation!

It appears that the Politics Forum is no longer a "child forum" of The Pit. Let's hope it stays this way.

I'm going to forget that it's no longer part of the pit.

Now that we have some more autonomy and only two active mods, I think we should elect a third to take over for Maveryck.

Mav, as much as I like him, hasn't posted since November.

My concern isn't necessarily "keeping things under control," but representation. Two right/centre-right mods in a fairly large and diverse forum? I think we should pick another person to balance the scale.

GAH!

I do NOT. This is NOT about me. To prove it, if we get the chance to nominate people, I will not accept any nominations I happen to get.

I'm just messing dude.


You remind me of the guy who was nominated for campus chair at Penn State. He only ran because he was afraid of his opponent winning, and inspired others to run.

EDIT - Ima nominate you.

Neither of the mods are extreme. I think they're about equally far from center in opposite directions.

I don't see the need for another mod. This forum runs smoother than any other forum on the boards.

You guys are right. I'm not going to stir anything up. I really just wanted to point out to everyone that we got one of the demands we made previously.

This for some reason reminds me of the time I got hoodwinked into thinking you and Subtledagger were the same person.

That clever deception is what drives me to continue tricking nubs into thinking I'm a pit mod.

Generally I say, people viewing political/phil forums tend to be there for that soul purpose which sometimes means they know alot about the subject/are into it. Whereas on Mx you have folks that are in-to such as yourself, a good contender, but at the same time you have the wanderers who want to get their two cents in.

Aren't you supposed to be an anarchist? What'll you do if someone spams? Have a serious talk with them to make sure they know what they've done wrong?
