Ok guys, your region has had enough activity to condone a regional moderator.

Here is how this is going to work:
- You can nominate yourself or someone else to be a regional mod.
- The nomination period will last for 3 weeks.
- The voting time will last for 3 weeks.
- If there is a tie breaker, that will last for 3 weeks.
- After all voting is completed the thread will be locked and the winner will be made a regional moderator.

The beauty of this is you will get to vote on your own moderator.

Before nominating yourself or another person I suggest you read this page to see what it entails:
http://www.phpbb.com/support/documentation/2.0/#section5

Rules for nominating:
1. Only nominate one person.
2. Can only nominate and vote if you are located in this region.
3. If you have been nominated and do NOT wish to serve please post in the thread that you retract your name from the list.
4. If you decline the nomination it can no be retracted.
5. If you do not retract your name from the list, you will be considered up for nomination and added to the poll for voting.
6. There will be no debating in this thread, simply post a name. All other content will be deleted.

When nominating, please consider the person correct for the position based on their ability to handle this, not because their truck is cool.

If the Moderators and Admins feel that the power of the newly elected moderator for this region is abusing his/her powers we will revoke the permissions on the person.

What is expected of you:
1. Must maintain a professional 'voice' on all subjects.
2. No bashing of other board members.
3. An understanding of when topics get out of control.
4. Keep your region 'clean' of other garbage.
5. Unsure of things, contact a Board Moderator or an Admin.
6. When locking threads give a reason why in the last post.

Oh yea, the 'job' offers lousy pay($0 annually), lousy hours(24/7 - no holidays), and crap benefits (none). You will have access to a moderator only section for all regional mods, board mods, and admins.

Please take this seriously.

So post up who you would like to see as the moderator of this region.

I honestly think we need a moderater for the Northwest, and another for California... I think Jimbo is one of the only member's with enough experience in both regions to be solely the moderator for the whole pacific region. I would second the vote for OregonX up here though.

The person doesn't need to be familiar or have experience with the actual region to be a moderator. They are just here to moderate the forum, to make sure things run smoothly. Unless these regional forums explode and get hundreds of posts a week, I think one person can handle it.

Gotchya. My image of a moderator for the regional forums was a little different. My apologies.

Thanks, Mindie.

When I read the first post my first thought was to nominate you, since you also help head up PNWX.
Thanks. I have too much on my plate right now. I can't count on spending enough time here, and if I can't do something the right way, I'd rather leave it to someone who can.

I 2nd the nomination for OregonX. Between what he has all ready contributed and what he is currently undertaking, he has a wealth of experience and knowledge.

We are actually going to extend the nominations for a bit. We have some new software that will help control the voting more than we already can.

We are figuring in about 2 weeks or so.
