Moderator Nomination Thread 2017

This is part one of the moderators election. (Part two is the actual vote.)

The term of office for this election is through the end of 2017, and the number of moderators shall remain unchanged at two.

Nominate people to be voted on in the moderators election. People nominated here will appear in the moderators vote, unless they specifically say they do not accept the nomination.

Joke nominations are discouraged, only because I can't tell whether you are joking or not.

The moderator election is not a popularity contest, and everybody hopes that losers, if there are any, do not feel discouraged about the Cellar. Moderator is a harder job than it appears, if only because people think of you differently if you are a moderator.

Nominations will close at 11:59 pm Eastern time on Jan. 5. If this is longer than appears necessary, it's only to make sure everyone gets a chance to see the thread and participate.

Nominations are open.

I nominate glatt who has been very balanced in his use of the power of moderation.

I will openly consider anyone who desires to be a moderator. However, the current team has been nothing short of outstanding and if they are willing to continue I see no need to change.

I think they (Limey & Glatt) should receive engraved banhammers.

...ummmmm, that's a slippery slope there. Soon there will be no term limits and then corruption is born.

Great idea Jim. Unless there is a desire to retire or cause to remove...
