    Chuffed to Be nominated .
    Thank you anonymous nominator.

    Had said previously I'd give it serious consideration if I was nominated again

    But sadly for now my energies are fully focused on rebuilding broken limbs, & getting myself back to some semblance of mobility, to really have time or do the role justice, for the foreseeable future.

    So I must graciously decline

    Best wishes to all nominated
    A fine choice who ever succeeds.

    I wish you all the best with mending your limbs and yourself!
    And I hope next year you'll be improved enough to feel up to reconsidering!

    Bumping this and reminding everyone that more nominations are welcome, whether you want to do so anonymously via a mod or direct on the thread.

    And a reminder to
    @catinahat
    @Fairygodmother
    @Pipp
    @PenguinMum
    @Daibell

    that you've all been nominated but haven't yet said whether you are accepting...

    I’ve just caught up with this, thanks for alerting me Antje and Ellie.
    Thank you, too, anonymous proposer. I’m flattered.
    I decline, though; I’d be far too haphazard in my visits to the forum, though the discussions with other mods sound good. I don’t think an on/off mod would be fair to anyone. Sorry.

    OK, I have last minute anonymous nominations for @Oldvatr and @HSSS

    I am amending the initial post of the thread accordingly.

    Would either of you like to stand?

    It's not too late for new nominations, people.

    I think I will do a better job by remaining on this side of the fence, but thank you to whoever put me up for it. As a pleb in the forum, I can speak my mind clearly and I would find being a Mod would be a hindrance to my research activities. From here I can invoke the wrath of the gods by hitting the Report button, and it seems to work quite well.

    Hi @Scorpiovr , welcome to the forum!
    I appreciate your enthousiasm, but it really isn't a good idea to be a moderator in a forum you just joined.
    What about enjoying the forum as a member for now, and if you find you like it here you can stand for election next year. :)

    Thanks for considering me suitable but I'm not the right person for the job and now is not a good time. I really appreciate anyone who feels I could conceivably ever be suitable. I imagined you to be a person of impeccable taste (until that faux pas):angelic:
