    I don't have a personal preference for an admin - but it should be someone who has the ability to be impartial when needed. Banning people from chatboxes, deleting threads without notice, that is not on.

    The right admin probably won't be voted by consensus, most likely it'll be another admin's discretion, but I just hope they make the right choice in this one.

    Thanks for those changes they were much needed.

    I'm happy to be an admin. I read every post every day anyway. I also think I'm more even handed than most.

    In any case I don't think the task should be undertaken by someone under 18.

    Good move on disabling that timer on posts, that was a little annoying and never really did what it was set out to do.

    I may put my hand up for an admin position, but lately i haven't had the time spare for nerf stuff, though i do look over the site a few times a day.

    I will second, Aj and Chaos-Blade & Psykka for an admin position. These members are old enough to not get the power trip that many younger members may feel with that much power. The power trip is a sad fact.

    Good to see the changes/reversions as I have recommended this forum to a number of people and it should encourage them to join.
    I would be willing to admin/mod as needed. I know I am only relatively new here and to NERF in general but I have been a mod before. A vast knowledge is not needed just some common sense.
    Resume aside I would support AJ, Psykka, Chaos-Blades, Servulus and littlebro05 if only due to his honesty about going tripping but I believe he would stay even handed for at least a month or so

    This is my opinion, for what it's worth - I believe that we need more moderators, by cutting the administrators' work, it'll make it easier for us. I'm not saying this to protect my own membership, either. I'm saying that if we have too many administrators, then it's going to be very crowded. I'm thinking of stepping down as MS4E and NightCabbage did too. Maybe it's a time for change.
    Xoenz wrote:Hopefully you could expand inbox capacity next?
    Actually, expanding the inbox was one of the first things that I did when I was made admin. 50 messages is the limit that forumotion has set.

    Echoes wrote:In my opinion, an Admin can't be too proud of their abilities in Nerf (they should know more or less what is relevant to a topic obviously). It just leads to people getting all defensive during "discussion" for whatever reason. They might not even have to be awesome at modifications or have a massive collection. They just have to know what's appropriate for this forum and what isn't. Not only with respect to the community, but in the way they govern this forum.
    Yes, exactly, that's what an admin has to be, but in this case, I believe that the site needs more moderators, people who are pretty good with modding, and are also pretty fair. I also believe that moderators should not be restricted to people over the age of 18, either.

    I totally agree. Im banned from chatbox but have no idea why. Apparently the more I ask for a reason the longer the ban time

    I would be happy to be a Mod or an Admin and I agree with Psykka that I don't think task of an Admin should be undertaken by someone under the age of 18.

    Thank you, i think that the wait period was a bad idea in the first place, and i'm interested in becoming an admin.

    [quote="TheBradl3s"]I'd love to be an admin if you wanted to bump me up a from mod.

    We could also make some more moderators, as I have a few ideas...

    I think brad should be an admin he is one of the best nerfers out there!

    Out of all the people I have seen on this thread, regardless of whether I know them or not, the only person that I think would make a responsible admin is Psykka. Hes the only person that I think will keep his cool in all situations.

    I've made some considerations and decided to appoint 2 admins and 2 moderators. Announcement will come shortly.

    Juse because he's one of the 'best nerfers' does not make him suitable for being an admin role. It just doesn't work that way.

    I am eagerly awaiting Frankie's decision. It had better not be anyone under 18. Truth is we are just a bunch of <filter wont let me say word> who think we rule the world and are better than everyone. If it still counts I'd say Chaos-Blades and Physkka. Sorry Aj but, well, we have all seen your triple shot video. Aj would make a good mod I think but perhaps not an admin.

    Just my opinions which I probably should have kept to myself.
