    Just as an update for those watching - we have gotten a lot of people expressing interest. We are still accepting applications so please throw your name in if you're interested.

    We're having more discussions internally and it will probably be a few weeks before we have any specifics on who we're choosing and can then announce some details as far as timing of transition, etc.

    You should quit that job if it's going to keep interfering with your hobbies. :)

    Yeah, that's not even every time the baby poops on him I'm sure! :rofl:

    As far as diversity on the MC... Well, let me just say that @Everskyward has my undying respect as a mod and as a person. Those of you who are friends with me on Facebook (as she is) know that I drop random political bombs and I rather enjoy the conversations that are had afterwards, even heated. But after lots and lots of time here and there, and plenty of discussion in heated topics, I've still never seen Mari lose her cool or show her hand, and after all these years I still don't know what exactly her politics are, even though she does share opinions. Quite impressive!!!

    Well, I just might rescind my offer then!

    Wait, does this MC member get the option to bring back either Spin Zone or reputation?

    Better yet, with everyone who's not a POA member. Of course, that might take a while....

    We're definitely going about things differently than we have in the past, since it's previously always been by nomination. I think we're coming up with a good group, though, who will have the best interests of PoA's future in mind and do a good job.

    I really wouldn't recommend that. They might actually start a war with us to try to force us to allow your return. ;)

    I am (was) an admin level moderator on a sportbike forum for several years. From what I've seen, usually the people that actively seek a moderator position tend not to be good moderator material. It's not an absolute rule, just a general observation.

    I couldn't be a moderator on POA. The sportbike forum had a different set of rules (few) and a different set of dynamics - cowboy moderation, vs. consensus moderation.
