    Too bad. I'd love to finally have a mod with looks and personality in the team, but your terms automatically disqualify you based on rule C12 of our forum ethos:
    Further examples where Moderation is likely to take place:
    Using our Forum as a method to solicit users without seeking prior approval from the Moderators.

    Getting so hard to find a well paying volunteers role these days, in all seriousness though, I nominate all current mods based purely on awesomeness!

    Many thanks to the existing mods for all their selfless hard work. I am flattered to have been nominated but will decline as I am currently getting involved in a more person to person voluntary role. However I shall continue to hunt down trolls and snake oil salesman from the sidelines and to debunk myths and scientifically unfounded beliefs.

    I wish you well with the voluntary role you're taking, hope it will be as enjoyable as being a mod is!
    And please keep hunting from the sidelines, it's much appreciated!

    On the grounds that I am not good looking and have no personality whatsoever I must respectfully decline. Of course, the lack of financial inducements has nothing to do with my decision. :)

    Seriously, I have needed to be moderated myself a few times recently and I therefore don't think I am suitable for the post.

    Thanks

    Not having been moderated in the past is not a prerequisite to be a mod.
    If you'd like to stand for election, please do!

    I really can't. Neither my eyesight nor my typing skills are good enough. It takes me ages to do the few bits I do post, sorry

    Oh, that a sad reason to have to decline, I'm sorry.
    However, if it also affects your reading, I think you're right to decline. We don't really need to write a lot, but we do a lot of reading and skimming through threads and skipping between tabs.
    I'll edit the opening post.

    In the vein of it takes a thief to catch a thief, being moderated sounds like a bonus point, ;)

    Sad about the money part :hilarious:

    I thought you'd have been a good choice but like others , have to respect your decision :).

    Take care, @zand

    Hi @zand, sorry for the delay in replying but we have to wait for @Administrator to confirm who on the mod team is eligible for re-election. They should be back in the office tomorrow so should get a definite answer for you then.
