    I think it would be a nice touch if there was a moderator of the month award?
    The accolade could be put under the respective mod's avatar, like a virtual sash or something...

    We'd actually like to do an event where people from the forum were invited down and we gave out awards - it would be a great opportunity to reward the success stories/experiences and for people to meet/mingle/get to know real-life people. We had this penciled for discussion later in the year, so will certainly revisit it!

    I finally remembered the name of a person I would like to nominate. He has recently changed his account name as his old account was closed in error I believe.

    @DavidGrahamJones ( I think he was Graj0 ? ) .

    We're starting to get a fine smorgasbord of nominations. (Was going to use the term "selection box". But felt it inapropriate.)

    I have already requested that @Administrator takes my name off the list. I thought I ought to explain here as well so there is no confusion. Many thanks to those who supported my nomination. :) I'm sorry, the timing is all wrong for me. A few months ago I decided to have a break from all forums for personal reasons and it's time I put this into practice, so I shan't be around to put in enough hours. Maybe next time? :)

    I would also like to request that @Administrator remove me from the list. I don't spend enough time here these days to warrant the nomination. I'm also not motivated enough to spend the time and energy required to do the job correctly.

    Can you remove me too please @Administrator . Whilst I am grateful for the nomination, I do think my role on the forum is better served by my sicking my nose into other 'types' business, asking rather obvious questions and generally trying to be a nuisance! :)
    But might be up for it next time........:eek:

    Please would it be possible to add the words "(previously known as graj0)" to @DavidGrahamJones nomination on the list so that everyone knows who he is?

    Would stealth not be a good moderator quality ? lol

    Thank you very much for the nomination, it has me smiling from ear to ear haha but feel as though i should gracefully bow out. There are many other members who have been around longer then I who should get the nod first on this one. Maybe next time though!

    @Administrator and please remove me too please. I'm grateful for the support of those who nominated me but I have far too little time to do it justice if I were to be elected (not very likely given I spend little time at all here now due to other commitments). A year ago things might have been different.
