Forum Moderator Applications Open!

The admins are launching a new experiment to encourage participation and involvement more directly from the users, and part of this experiment involves new "Forum Moderators"! These carefully chosen users will enjoy a 'tenure' of three months, during which they will help change the look of the forum, facilitate contests, and generally make the forum a brighter and more exciting place.

For the first time this is being put to a vote: first a vote among users to select a pool of final applicants, and then a mod/admin vetting and installment of the winner. This is a huge change for UG as traditionally mods were simply picked by the existing pool of mods and admins.

Here's how the users vote portion will take place:

- 7 days before election day, candidates will announce their intention to run.
- 5 days before election day, candidates will participate in grand debates - create your own campaign where you’ll show why you’re will be the best moderator for your forum.
- Election 'day' will run for 48 hours.
- After votes are tallied, the mods and admins will choose from the three top voted participants.

Inauguration day: The new ambassador will be installed with fanfare!

Basic eligibility for running:

- Your account must be more than three months old
- Must have more than 180 posts
- Applicants must have a clear record for the last three months (no warnings or bans).

If this goes well, in another three months we will start the process again and install a new subforum moderator.

May the odds be ever in your favor.

If you have any questions feel free to fire them over to either myself, Freepower or Tostitos and we'll offer our wisdom and guidance!

So what are you waiting for? Get your shit together, nominate yourself and start campaigning - don't forget the deadline for putting your name forward is midnight tomorrow!!!
