As a piece of being a member of the staff here at FoH, part of my duties will be running the moderation team. As such suineg suineg and I have come up with the rules and procedures for moderator elections. They are largely the same, but there are some differences, please read them all here before you decide to run for moderator.

************************

Candidates will create a thread in the following format "User for Amod - Jan to Jun". Failure to follow the format of the title is grounds for disqualification because if you can't follow these basic rules you can't follow the will of the people.

Inside that thread you will lay out your case for why you should be a moderator. This is NOT why someone else should not be. You aren't competing against others per se.

You will then answer any questions people may have. You can link supporting reasons like helpful posts or your likes on your profile, anything you think relevant.

You cannot nominate someone else, you can run yourself.

YOU WILL KEEP YOUR CAMPAIGN TO YOUR THREAD. YOU WILL NOT CAMPAIGN IN YOUR FELLOW CANDIDATES THREAD AT ALL. However, in your signature you can put that you are running and a single link to your thread.

Once voting starts these threads will be locked and stickied. The names will be listed in a poll and the rules we finalized in rules discussion will take over from there.

Moderators will not serve consecutive terms. This is to prevent a permanent incumbent class of moderators here at FOH. For this election cycle, this means that:

Alkorin
Boozecube
Denamian
OhSeven
ZyyzYzzy

Are ineligible to run. Thank you for your service, gentlemen.

There will be 5 positions. This is to make sure that there are enough people to cover the majority of the forums, and an odd number in case of a tied vote over some issue or another. There will also be 3 alternate positions for people to be "on deck" in case they are needed. These will be the next highest vote-getters.


First week - announcement and rules posted DEC 1ST - DEC 8th
Second week - campaigning. DEC 8th - DEC 15th
3rd week - voting. DEC 15th - DEC 22nd
4th week - transition period. DEC 22nd - DEC 29th

Moderators will assume power after voting is finalized on the 22nd. The term for this round of moderators will be from JAN - JUN 2019. Unless the conditions are met to hold a special election (see new moderator rules and guidelines).


Voting process:

A thread will be created with a poll that lists the names of the people that have campaigned. A link to their thread is not necessary because they are in the same sub forum as the poll.

You will receive 5 votes (unless the number of positions change) and will select the 5 people you wish to lead you into greatness. It is that simple.

This will NOT be a public vote and you will not be able to change your vote so consider wisely and carefully.

The people have decided and all registered users not in a banned state shall be able to vote.
