I couldn't dissagree with those choices in the least..
I'm gonna throw this out there as help for choices, since I've been there..
The choice MUST have a level head. You can't explode, (at least online) no matter what happens.
You have to have time to actually wander in here everyday, and have access to email in case some jerk is starting something or posting spam/porn/etc and someone emails you about it.
You have to attempt to understand all sides of the situation, take a breath, and then understand it again before making an action.
You have to understand that deleting something will eliminate an issue, while closing it will only advertise the situation and cause more issues.. (We've all seen this, haven't we?)
And last, the person has to be someone who will continue to use the site, and will retain the desire to come here and do this job..
Moderating doesn't pay very well, and sometimes it's a pain in the butt.. But, you tend to get more personal with a lot more users than not being a moderator.
That's my take on it. I was a moderator for several years, and NO, I don't want to be a moderator here since I don't have access to the site on a daily basis due to constant travel and long hours in a papermill.. I just want nominators and nominatees to understand what they're doing, completely.. The "other" site had some great moderators, and some of the worst I've ever seen.. It's a mistake that doesn't have to be made again..
