Typically, you don't call us, we call you. We've usually waited until there was a perceived need, then asked members we thought would do well.

What's your suggestion? Should we pick random users to moderate the forums?

Maybe you could stick all the moderator wannabes in a......house......or something. Then they could.......vote each other out of the house until there is one left. Maybe you could even videotape the whole thing and put it on the website.... :lol:

5 year democratic elections:
with electioneering
vote fixing
vote buying
rallies
balloons
cigars
scrutineers

(and as in any political election, your skills, knowledge and abilities come secondary to your allegiances with powerbrokers, your smile and your good looks)

Admins are selected by the so called lottery approach.

I never won a lottery, so that cannot be true.
