    Everyone, thank you so much for the good, varied and lively nominations process you provided for the current round of Moderator Elections. Thank you to all those accepting their nomination, and to those who felt unable, or unwilling to accept at this time, your consideration is appreciated very much.

    We are now in a position to open voting.

    As you will see, we have several candidates to choose from, across the range of our membership, in terms of type, length of time on forum and general experience. This can only be a good thing.

    Candidates, in alphabetical order:
    @Antje77
    @Brunneria
    @Caeseji
    @Goonergal
    @HSSS
    @Kittycat_7_
    @Knikki
    @lucylocket61

    In terms of the voting process, each member is able to vote for up to 3 candidates. You don’t have to vote for 3, but can do so. There will be a maximum of 3 Mods appointed following voting, including any re-elections.

    Voting will be open until midnight Thursday 23rd May, UK time, with results to be announced a few days later. Please choose your Mods carefully.

    Good luck everyone!

    Edited by DCUKMod: Guys - Please use the poll to vote. Votes cast in the body of the thread will not count

    If you are using the App, and unable to view the poll, please log in via your browser when it will become visible. Thanks!

    VOTING HAS NOW CLOSED. THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR VOTES.

    Whilst voting has closed, please relax over the bank holiday and don’t go breaking your F5 key, refreshing your screen!

    Once votes have been finalised, and communicated into HO management, each candidate will receive a PM, informing them if they have been successful, this time around. Once all candidates have had the opportunity to absorb their news, a formal announcement will be made, and arrangements will be made for status changes, and the relevant induction processes.

    Many thanks to everyone who has voted, posted and bumped their way through the last couple of weeks. Whilst going on a bit, it is an important process for our community.

    Looks like it :
    "In terms of the voting process, each member is able to vote for up to 3 candidates. You don’t have to vote for 3, but can do so."

    Yes I know I read the original post and my reading comprehension is pretty good!

    However the text beneath the candidates names is misleading..I was simply pointing that out.

    It should say you can vote for more than one candidate not vote multiple times maybe?

    I always just vote for the funniest names.

    Hope the admins can't see who voted what or I'll look like an idiot for voting for myself...
    I did throw in some due consideration before casting my other 2 votes, though :)
    Not sure what names are the funniest, but do you think I should have taken profile pictures into consideration too, @britishpub?
