MOD CAMPAIGN SPEECHES

Alright, this thread's for people who were nominated for the poll on who should be a mod to explain why they would like to be a mod, how they would do the job, or back out if they don't want the position.

I'll update the OP with links to the posts with speeches so you can't miss them, please try to judge whether or not you truly want a person to moderate based on these, this way it won't be a popularity contest.

MY SPEECH:

I'm not the type of person to sugarcoat my words. When I say something I usually don't mean any insult or harm that may be taken from my words, but I want to lay out situations with as little bias on my part as possible, so that everyone may see how I'm going to judge something. When rules are in place I'm usually going to be enforcing them pretty strictly, and it's guaranteed that things are going to seem unfair sometimes, but my main concern in doing this and anything else is to help all of you and the forum in whatever way I can.

Re: MOD CAMPAIGN SPEECHES

We Gather here today to hear the speeches of the possible future moderators, As a candidate for moderator I shall uphold the rules and well being of the forums. I shall bring justice where need be when ever it is required in a fair unbiased manner, I might not be the most strict as most people but I will do what must be done when I must.

Also due to my timezone I am pretty active at almost all times and easily reached though steam.

Re: MOD CAMPAIGN SPEECHES

I'm Metal Chao
I don't need more of a speech than that

But hell I guess I'll give one anyway
I have been doing PW for quite a long time now, not exactly sure how long but it's multiple years. I've been a moderator for at least half of that and probably a lot longer.
Basically I'm reliable.
All these guys here seem decent enough but they haven't necessarily been a moderator before. I have. On freeforums I am the administrator, you can trust me not to abuse my power, delete threads from people who disagree with me, ban people without warning or generally let my own opinion get in the way of what actually needs to be done. These other guys? Well I don't meant to cause any offence but we've gone through a lot of moderators in PW and a lot of them were pretty nice guys until they got hold of absolute power over everything else anyone said.
Ok maybe that's a bit more dramatic than it needs to be, but if you want someone who doesn't dick around and can be relied upon to give an objective judgement on everyone, regardless of what forum they originally joined and whether I personally even like them or not then I'm your man
Also I'm here pretty much all the time, I can takes jokes and criticism without snapping, I know pretty much everyone from both boards and just generally know what I'm doing.

Also I'm Metal Chao
Why would you vote for anyone else I mean come on

Re: MOD CAMPAIGN SPEECHES

Speeches huh?

Well I can say I know how PW works, having done it since its oldest FP years - I'm nearing 4 PW years now making me pretty much the oldest active member. Those that know me will know I am fair and don't really overreact to situations, and while I've never actually been a mod I've got enough knowledge to allow me to be one. I often make sure I know all the members, without knowing people you can easily misjudge their intentions in a given situation. A lot of people do let the power go to their head, but I've seen enough mods in my time to not allow that to happen to myself - I'll act according to the forum's rules but I understand the need for leniency, following too close can always ruin people's fun, I have no intention of doing that.

I think the main reason why I'll be a good vote though, is because I know the mindsets of each community - FP and Freeforums, and I realise we are both a tad different. This would enable me to make better judgements, and my neutrality in both the forums means I would take only the side which is in the right. I do not have favourites, even though I love freeforums. (I'm also pretty active)

It's up to you guys really - if you vote for me I am grateful, but I understand there are some equally capable members out there.

Re: MOD CAMPAIGN SPEECHES

My speech is:

After being here for only 10 months (PW wise) I've become friendly with (or tried to) with everyone on FPPW. Right now infact both Rahkshi and Trifon are messaging me, we have all become great friends. And thats why I should be moderator: I try to be friendly and good with everyone, hell I was friends with Pvt. Vain at one point! I'm a good person who joined facepunch PW for the community, and after all the laughts and fun being mod will help me give back to the community.

After all, Its all fun and games  ;)

๖ۣۜTrifon [GB]: Then throw your birth certificate in her face and say 'Bitch why didn't you make me a girl, im gonna go upstairs, tuck my dick between my legs and put on your clothes and be a transvestite, dont blame me, you made me I boy when I wanted to be a girl. Gonna go frollick in frollicking meadows, see ya bitch&quot;

Re: MOD CAMPAIGN SPEECHES

Hello, I'll start by introducing myself as ReconUnit.

I've been active on PW and an active artist for the past year and a half. To be honest, I don't even really see a reason why I got nominated, but you can apparently thank Yuskolov for that.
But well, what can I say about myself?
As the fine gentleman Yusk said, I usually remain natural in arguments and at least try to see through everyone's point of view, not matter how wicked it is.
I also try to be an active and good member, and I quite frankly don't think I've really made any enemies at all over this year of activity here.

But, to the point, I don't really care if I get elected or not, as long as the moderators and admin elected instead of me are reasonable and not complete incapable monkeys.
If that works out, I am more then happy to leave the job to you other members of this community.
Have a good life.

Edit:
I don't like making speeches, they make me start making up my own filler words.

Re: MOD CAMPAIGN SPEECHES

Right so uh I was nominated so here are some proud inspiring words.

Chances are, if you are from the free-forums you already know me fairly well. I started PW roughly three or so years ago, I believe. It was after one of the first temporary forums, which I had lurked on for a while. I eventually joined and integrated into the community fairly quickly. While I'm not the oldest PW member by a long shot, I've seen a fair number of people join and stay and I've been through a lot with PW. I mean PW was really the first time I stopped lurking on the internet, and some of my fonder memories have been a result of my experience here. I've made friends and sprited and done all kinds of cool things and it's been great. While I can't say that I've been around since PW's inception, I feel as though I have a fair bit of experience.

Part of why I want to be moderator is to try and give something back to the community-- I know that sounds dumb and idealistic but bear with me okay? I kinda feel like I could do more for the community and that's part of my interest in running is being able to help out and such. I know that moderators really don't do much aside from get sweet colored text but they do get some cool abilities and that's cool. I think most people know how I would behave as mod. I try to avoid playing favorites and generally don't discriminate or be a big jerk. While I don't post that much, I'm on all the time, even just browsing offline. I could probably be described as fairly neutral-- while I have held some enmity against others I strive to keep myself level and rational, and I think I've succeeded. The people who originated from free-forums know me well enough to judge me how they will. While I'm not as familiar with FPPW, I'll work towards better understanding individuals coming from there and I know for certain that I don't prefer certain members over others.

I guess it's ultimately up to you guys who you want to be moderator, but hopefully you'll consider me for mod.

Re: MOD CAMPAIGN SPEECHES

All your speeches are better than mine. SadI had to rush mine because I had to go.
I'll probably revise mine when I get home.

Re: MOD CAMPAIGN SPEECHES

My people... Sons and Daughters of Facepunch. This much I vow: The history of these days will be written in bandwidth. By crushing the armies of our enemy, by seizing the weapons they thought to turn against us, we were fighting for our very existence! But if there are those who would deny us peace; refuse us our rightful place in the universe, then we will unleash such terrible vengeance that generations yet unborn will cry out in anguish!

For Pixels, For the Picture wars!
