Clearly you did not see my involvement before it was deleted by Katie so i will assure you, I was vocal in the first lot of mod elections and I am sure others can back me up on this.
I did not even say one word about myself becoming one of those nominated before anyone nominated myself, you can check the thread if you wish, so I did not try to promote myself as a potential, mod nor have I done at all.

If he wants to appoint someone based on a thread and poll that noone supports then let him do that. I for one will only take moderation concerns through Corey. Id also look at the discussion on this thread and notice that very few people are really entertaining this. In fact, to my knowledge, those most vocally for it are those who said little about the original appointment but suddenly spring to life when there's a second position on the table. Those people arent interested in D+D anymore than GC and as a result they wont get support from me.

This asks a fundamental question: if after the disagreements of the original appointment you accept that one moderator saves face in the light of justified criticism by creating a spur of the moment second moderator position. Im not about to be bullied on a second issue, particuarly one that has no relevance to the needs of the forum.
Does any one know how Corey feels about this? The people who didn't originally talk much on the other thread don't necissaraly care less about d and d but that thread got very heated so I people stayed away.

Are you talking about corey at the start of this sentance or the situation we now find ourselves in?
I disagreed with that appointment and the way it was handled. I feel sorry for Corey, but A has appointed him and thats the end of the matter. He is the D+D mod and I will take concerns through him. Faced with criticism, and without any such suggestion or notification from A, a second mod position is suggested to actually now take into consideration the views of D+D. That either renders Corey's position untenable by virtue of an admission of a mistake or it is a cheap appeasement ploy that should only be entertained by those looking for a quick mod job. In any case, it undermines Corey's position. I will not back a second moderator on that principle alone. If that moderators and A believe a mistake was made and they wish to appoint someone that is supported by D+D then they clearly must to do the decent thing and apologise to Corey and demod him. While that would be unfortunate, it would at least have an air of decency about it, rather than this sham we have at the moment.

Just as a little point, why do you still refer to Corey as a male when A pointed out she was female?

Alot of that I would agree with, however I think its going to be highly irrelevant.

I have been merely trying to organise things here, not try to get myself to become a mod. Have I done anything that as a nominee to make myself seem any more favourable than any of the others or allowed myself anything that the other nominees have got. I did not even nominate myself, nor did I expect to be for that matter, so it was not my goal to get modship, it was not even a thought.

Vienna, this is ridiculous. If you don't want a second mod that is fine. You don't have to talk to them. It is obvious to I supsect just about everyone that because you don't get your way no one is going to get theirs. You keep saying that no one else has the good of d+d in mind. Who the hell are you to say that you are the only one who knows what is good for this forum? There are obviously people who want a mod that they know.
A has spoken on the matter. He is for the appointment of a new mod. He hasn't answered all of your questions because he doesn't have time. He told me that one reply was all that he had time for.
So everyone has a choice. You can either follow vienna and just not vote. Or you can follow the plan and allow the members of d+d to have our say in who our mod is.

What is my way? I was also unaware I was preventing anyone else from acting as they see fit.

You keep saying that no one else has the good of d+d in mind.
And the fabrication starts.....

He did mention he supported the mods on this issue, which I assume also meant the exclusion of Howard and Vienna.
Interesting: If he supports the mods, it implies that the mods disqualified Vienna and Howard.
Yet I'd swear that I heard Katie say tha A didn't want Vienna or Howard.

A has not been around all that long, therefore it is quite accpetable to assume he will ask the advice of the mods on member issues, therefore he will support their decisions.

What's the point of having a poll to select a moderator if two of the major canditates are excluded because (presumably) the boss personally dislikes the candidates? Why not just forget it and just have A nominate someone he likes? :rolleyes:
