I think we should, every year, vote for our moderators.
Power to the People!
The revolution has begun.

Ultimately, it would boil down to a popularity contest. I think that would end up being worse than any normally appointed mods could ever be. (Unless someone like Ethan_Hanus became a mod.....)

To attempt to have intercourse with a hornet's nest is a very bad idea,

Voted UG's worst cross dresser.
Also voted #95 on UG's Top 100 2013. Like it means anything....

Popular doesn't mean smart. Didn't anyone learn anything when Clinton, Bush and Obama were re-elected consecutively?
Tomorrow will take us away
Far from home
No one will ever know our names
But the bards' songs will remain
Tomorrow will take it away
The fear of today
It will be gone
Due to our magic songs

No more than 2 consecutive terms. After 2 they can't be mod for one term.

How long is a term? I say we hold elections every four months.
This ends now, eat the goddamn beans!

That sounds like a good amount of time.

The vast majority of you are idiots, so I have 0 confidence in the ability to elect anyone who isn't also an idiot. And isn't 15
My God, it's full of stars!

I was actually going to vote for you. But then I decided to vote for Jon Snow or something. I forget what I ended up voting.

It's enough time that people get a feel for their newly-elected officials, but it's also at easily-remembered times of the year.

And I like the no third term idea.

Democracy sucks, screw giving power to the people.

But if it happens, I would run anyways.
Bread and circuses, people. Bread and circuses.
Or the internet equivalent, which I guess would be porn and kittens.

This is a stupid idea that I'm totally not berating just to get on the good side of our benevolent overlords.

What we really need is someone with almost 10 years experience on this site. Never broke the rules (IIRC.) Someone that Isn't as widely popular as most members and is not as friendly as this current crop of mods.

Yep.


The current model is already tainted with double standards and favouritism, imagine how much worse it would be if we adopted this system.

So you guys are saying that democracy in a more pure and direct form than they have in the USA or most places in Europe is basically flawed?

That's alright I guess, but then I do hope most of you will be consistent from here on and never again swallow the "we have to install a democracy in Third World Country X" shtick most of our politicians give us.

So basically you're saying that I should be a mod Although I've only been here about 6 years.

well you've not yet even passed the 8 year mark and you have 4 past warnings, so that rules you out.

I'd love to see the public outcry if you became a mod.
But boys will be boys and girls have those eyes
that'll cut you to ribbons, sometimes
and all you can do is just wait by the moon
and bleed if it's what she says you ought to do

A mod is influenced by their generation. They become a representation of the state of UG when they were chosen.

The only time he would be picked is when the community of UG, and possibly society in general has degenerated into pure chaos.
