Moderator elections on Ultimate Guitar Forum!

Do you want to make some changes we believe in? Do you really love UG and want to make it better? Then this is your chance. It’s time for the moderator elections!

Each (almost) subforum will get a new moderator and you decide who it’s going to be.
The elections have 3 stages.

Here are some hints for you on how to make a first step to becoming a moderator.
- Candidates who want to participate in elections must nominate themselves in corresponding threads.
- Candidates must nominate themselves in one subthread only.
- Candidates must nominate themselves within two days starting today (apply till 12.08).

You'll have to persuade users, why you're the one who deserves to be a moderator. You're free to promise profound advice and help to inexperienced users, or just things like fun monthly activities and crazy wallpapers. Users can ask you questions about your opinion on controversial subjects etc. The campaign will last for 5 days.

Election day!
Each subforum will get a voting poll.
Winners get a moderator status, glory, respect, love, and help from UG in organizing special events.

Shura_FYI, why can't we nominate posters who might be interested? 

It could be slightly better than self-nominations.

wouldn't it be better to find out first. not everyone has the time or inclination to do this. i have no life and a job that allows me to be here all the time. if that wasn't the case then i wouldn't have gone up for it in the first place. 
Ippon you can ) it's actually will be interesting if you nominate someone, then create a campaign for this user  =) 
If he/she wins it's still up to user to color username, but in all this situation you will be his/her PR/campaign manager. 

K33nbl4d3 First time we thought it will be 6 months, then prolong it to 1 year. This time will bу a year =)

yeah. i was thinking that anyone who didn't want to do it, if nominated by someone else, could turn it down. but maybe that would still be unfair pressure on them, and they might be scared of looking ungrateful.
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.
