So if there's a tie from more votes, is there a round of Battle Square and whoever wins first gets to be the nommed mod? Nom. This word is so addicting.

This makes me sad. I've never been able to caress the chest-rug of a bearded dwarf.
Or had encounters with beards.
Or had a beard. Okay I'm not sad about that one--

I'm afraid I'll have to rule myself out of the running. I quit the mod life years ago and not sure if I'd ever be able to go back, as my current one's a lot more different/happier now.

OT: I also nomvote Octo. Reasons? She could be like the super cool hippy that preaches love and peace amongst the chaos.

I'm just gonna say here and now but Lex would you mind taking me out of the nomvote, (not that I don't appreciate the Vote Dawn) but I'm not around enough these days to be a good candidate for this sort of thing

Sorry I'm so late in saying this, but I haven't had a chance until now.

Why are we only considering female candidates? While I agree that it would be a good thing to have more women on staff, they should earn their nominations on merit. Or are we going to make sure we have a certain proportion of trans moderators, non-white moderators, and so on? I'd rather just pick the best people for the job, whoever they happen to be. This isn't intended to be a comment on any of the members nominated so far.

Carlie is the only female mod that's stuck around and brought this up. It's a sausagefest right now. It's really not something I thought about tbh, but that's the reason.

@ Lex: I was questioning public voting when these things traditionally have been voting through PM (or at least an anonymous poll)

I swear I just made a post and it disappeared.

That POV is totally fair, but I feel like nobody read my opening post, which explained both the reason why we opted for a female modship (answers flint) and also says:

You can post here to explain your reasoning, or just send me a PM if you're not comfortable discussing it in public.
In the past threads people publicly nominated, and while they may have PM voted the vast majority of them also made a post like "I voted for X because Y". If we'd followed that model it wouldn't have been any different, so this is just cutting out the middle man. The advantage is that most of the votes can be seen by everyone so it's more transparent. The option is there for those who don't want to vote in public.

I read your opening post, but "there's only one female mod" isn't, in my opinion, automatic justification for appointing another one.

Because we're filling the position left vacant by Mage when she stepped down. At the moment we have 10 mods, 9 of them male and 3 of them due to irl stuff aren't that active.

See they are getting on merit or else people wouldn't have voted for them. Every time we voted for a new mod, Octo has been one of the people who has gotten the most votes. She just hadn't been interested in a position before. I don't think anyone is going to argue that Octo isn't the best person for the job regardless of her gender.

At the moment we have 10 mods, 9 of them white (if I'm not mistaken), so should we appoint another non-white mod as well? 9 of them are cis-gendered, should we appoint another non-cis mod as well? Those are just examples; I could go on. I'd just like to know why we have to have a specific quota of females.

If Octo really is the best candidate for the job (and again, I stress that I am not commenting on any member's suitability), then she would have been selected anyway, even if the nominations had been open to everyone, right? So why didn't we just do that?
