Since AA has officially retired, do you think that we should have elections for a new admin, prime moderator, and moderator?

Sounds reasonable. Too bad he retired, though :/

I notice he didn't have a dark age until about three weeks after announcing a new series with a great deal of fanfare.

Who-ever it is needs to be as active as they are responsible.

I'm active, but I don't trust myself. =p

New admin? Do you trust Areetsa? I won't nominate myself, but I don't think regular mods could jump the rank.

For the prime mod I would nominate Matthew, but I don't know how much active he's going to be (although "he's back"). Ru is rather new, so I'd wait with him.

New mod? Mmm... E.K.O.?<--active and has been with us for a long time, relatively trustworthy. S.I.S.E.?<--Pretty active, but rather new. It would be a nice political stunt thing though.

For mod, I would say one of the chaps that were nominated with me. George maybe? He's not be particularly active though.

I appreciate you guys thinking of me, not because of my gender, but for my good nature as a human being
/poetical jibber-jabber


But I'm only active on evenings. I go to law school during mornings, clean the house on afternoons and study.

Come to think, if Rufus made it to mod on the group, he'd be a nice admin here. But since I agree with promoting one of the mods to admin (I know Rufus is a mod, but he's the newest, if I recall), then seeking for a mod, I have to discard the Rufus card (sorry bro :/). This'll require two elections, but that's democracy for you.

This "democracy" thing sounds like too much hassle to me.

Let's go with an autocracy instead.

Lets talk about admin: We need someone really active, and responsible...

Then certainly you wouldn't want me. Nor can I recommend someone, due to my "non-activity". But I think Rufus is well fit for admin position.

Yeah, Ru is a pretty cool guy, and I trust him. I think he's been a good mod so far. Also congrats on the Probationary Members division!!

Maybe we should lower our standards to 'Fairly active and not destructive'.

In other words, you want a figurehead.


How about Phaze? He's a TFOL, and activeish.

Not neccessarily. I was just saying that if nobody fit your lofty standards than maybe we ought to rethink them.

I think you missed on the "not dangerous" part.
