I assume that anyone that has bothered to read this blog (either by tracking me or clicking on my sig) will know that I had a previous sig where I was 'running in the mod election'.
As most of you know, there was no 'mod election'. GS does not believe that users should have a voice in choosing those that govern them/apply the TOU...it is "invite only".
My previous sig was removed, and I was suspended for a week (later overturned)...despite not being suspended in 2 years or having a non-overturned TOU violation in 6 months...this despite being told my sig was okay to have.
You can read it here (@20 posts per page):
"Roll with it, none of the admins have objected so do what you want to do"
I raised my concerns about how my suspension was handled and about my concerns dealing with the overall issue here
...you can see how that went
"We are an INVITE-ONLY process when it comes to volunteer moderators."
So now I am doing the only things I am allowed to do
"If you had posted a blog about this desire and then sent us a link to said blog with the glowing recommendations then things would have transpired differently."
"Synthia told you that you could make a blog about the idea you'd like to be a mod, which is fine. But the campaigning of vote for me as a moderator is not accepted."
...so here is my blog
Also, I created a thread on the general idea here (for those interested)
