A is a busy man you know, he's can't concentrate on TSR 100% of the time and like many of us, he needs a break. i.e. the weekend, I'm sure if and when A has time he will respond to your queries.
one tiny point, if A wanted vienna to be a mod, she would be a mod.
I am quite concerned by the lack of participation from A on this discussion. Admittedly, I believed that in light of the Announcement he made and the Moderator Poll thread, he would finish up with an announcement of which moderators he had chosen. I am also confused that he would include me as the sole candidate for D+D. I was put on the moderator poll and then on the subsequent sub mod poll. I am now being told that apart from having the support of D+D regulars and the basic technical "requirements"(time online, contribution etc) of moderation, the reason for now disregarding me relates to the fact that I could not work with the current moderation team. As much as I would dispute that, I respect that decision, if it came from A. Yet I have not heard that from any moderator. I have not heard that from A, and why was I then nominated and put on three polls if this was known previously? What discussed on any thread since the poll appeared has related to and altered this fact? I therefore put it to the mod team that,
i) A has not appointed the current mods and they were appointed directly from the polls in question.
ii) There was never any serious intention for me to be mod, my existence on the polls was merely to keep things quiet from the D+D end.
iii) My apparent inability to work with the moderation team, in light of the fact that I cannot say I dislike them, is the only reason that has been suggested against my candidature for mod. This strikes me as being a reason solely based on the personal interests of the mod team and were it to rule out the possibility of moderation, putting self interest before the objective needs of the forum.
