    We are looking for a moderator of this sub forum. Nominees should be of good standing on the forum with at least 200 meaningful posts relevant to this sub forum.

    We are not looking for someone to clarify who is right or wrong on any topic, we are looking for someone who will uphold the basic forum guidelines.

    Those guidelines can be found here

    You are not allowed to nominate yourself or nominate a member if you yourself have less then 100 posts.

    The first person to reach 5 unique nominations will be considered for the job. This will not be an automatic win for the nominee in all cases. Multiple nominees will be looked at and one chosen by myself or through further debate.


    Pleased to meet you. Hope you guess my name

    I don't think jackson is active anymore...

    If he isn't I nominate Kojax, since he seems to frequent this subform quite a lot.

    Edit: n/m he is active

    I'll be the first to suggest Jackson NOT be made mod. His inability to argue rationally, his push based on ideology, and his track record of ignoring valid counter points to his arguments suggest it would be an ill idea to make him a mod of anything on a science based site.

    Don't get me wrong. I like Jackson. We've exchanged a lot of posts with one another, but he's sort of like that zany uncle we all have with those crazy half-cocked conspiracy ideas that are not rooted in reality.

    I would suggest adding a nomination as well inow, they'll need an alternative if jackson is unwilling to do it, or found unsuitable.

    (In)Sanity; It's been a personal policy of mine, not to seek or accept moderating duties on any forum, your request the third or forth. However thank you for the thought.....

    i_f_t; Yes, I'm am active, but would agree 'kojax' would make a fine moderator, certainly having started many of the threads, under Politics...

    inow; My goodness inow, what a pleasant surprise....we are ideologically different????

    It's not about differing ideologies, Jackson. It's about an ability to rationally support ones argument and acknowledge contrary evidence. Those are critical on a science board like this.

    You came across my radar years ago at another site by denying climate change... doing little more than repeating Fox News talking points and ignoring the mountains of counter evidence shared against your claims... simply repeating yourself after having your claims flatly debunked. My sense in recent times is that you continue to repeat Fox News talking points, it' just that the topic has changed recently to disgust with Obama and a crazy fascination with misinterpreting our Constitution, misusing the label of socialism, and other such fanciful narratives not entirely grounded in reality.

    Like I said. I've grown to like you, and would even go so far as to consider you an online friend. Yes, we disagree magnificently on many issues, especially those political, but that has absolutely zero to do with why I would oppose you being made a moderator.

    Either way, it's not my call. I just wanted to voice a counter opinion based on the exchanges I've shared with you here and elsewhere.

    Cheers, man. Good luck at the poker table should you have a game tonight.
