On some discussion w/ Peter, we have decided that we will hold moderator elections after all. The following positions are open for nomination.
General Oddworld Discussion - 1 position
Peter and I will be removed from the moderator list here and a new moderator added (preferably someone who frequent GD). Xavier will be retained as mod.
Oddworld Help - 1 position
Preferably someone who has a good knowledge of the gameplay. Can provide assistance and help in at least two Oddworld games.
Fan Corner - 1 position
This is a temporary position only, seeing Alector is only absent often due to her studies. It is temporary however for an undetermined amount of time. Al to be retained as current moderator. Do not need to be an artist or writer, however you should be a frequenter of that forum (either as an artist/writer or someone who gives comments on others work).
Oddworld RPG - 1 position
Preferably an active RPGer who has ideas on how to enhance the RPG section. Rexy will be an automatic nomination, but unfortunately due to it's size, only one moderator is needed.
Any other forums do not require new mods at this time.
You can nominate either yourself or another person. But if you nominate another person, they must post in this thread and accept the nomination (i.e. that they want to be a mod).
Please post any nominations below. We will keep this open for two weeks. After which a forum wide election will be made.
Oddworld Forums Staff
As you can see, these are the only positions that are open for nominations, and later voting.
Abeguy if you're reading thisipick you for off-topic congratulations Abeguy
Thus this cannot happen. The only mods that will be temporarily replaced are Alector(only absent for a while do to studies and school), so I will need a new temporary assistant mod in Fan Corner. a Rexy, may or may not be re elected depending upon the votes. Thus there is no open spot for Off topic, and there are only a few open spots, all of the ones listed in Abe Babe's first post.

Just a reminder that this is only nominations at this point in time. Some of you seem a bit confused that you are actually voting on the mods. This will happen in 2 weeks time and will be held via a private vote.
Many including myself also thought this thread was for actual voting, but this is for nominations only like the previous election last year. The actual vote will take place through PM later on, and will be private voting.
Hope this clears things up.
So I guess we can all nominate several people for the positions open, but when the time comes, you can only vote for one person if that forum section only needs one person, and the original mods are not being replaced.
