Moderator Nomination Thread 2018

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 2018, 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.

Did you make this thread sticky so we can post in other META threads without obscuring it?

I can't see as either one of them has earned being let off the hook.

I don't think they're allowed to resign while we're under conditional mitigation. It's the code of the interwebz.

If this is a nomination for me then I accept. The duties are not too onerous.

Are the mods going to have to wear body cams this year just in case something controversial goes down so we'll be able to see what they saw?

Yeah but, I've read about the tragedies and travesties like:

A supposed spammer that got banned turning out to be just an innocent sockpuppet.

A clone thread so good it was deleted as a duplicate by a farsighted mod not wearing their glasses.

A mod banned a bunch of new users, who were coincidentally registering at about the same time, thinking it was harassment by an ex-spouse right after an argument.

All that aside, the body cams would really be to protect the mods from anyone making false allegations of situations not unlike the aforementioned.
