Which results in an unfair playing field. Can you imagine if NFL refs took into consideration a players complaints. In all seriousness, you suspended a member because someone else complained to you about pot roast.


There are coach's challenges in the NFL (and other pro sports):

Greetings!

For the record, I wasn't aware that this thread was going to be created or that I would be involved in any polling options. The question of my becoming a Moderator again, full disclosure, has been brought up in the past---but I didn't know that this thread was going to be created.

To be clear, I'm not terribly concerned if I am made an Administrator again, or not. It would seem that some people think that I did a good job in that role, and even when I did resign, many of them did not wish for me to do so. In any event, that was over three years ago.

As a result of this poll (I assume) I will state that I have been asked to become an Administrator again---and I conditionally accept.

My condition is that not a single Member in good standing, with a Join Date on or before 1/1/2020, raises an objection in this thread within the next seven (7) days. If even a single Member objects to my being an Administrator during this time, then I will not do it. I do not wish to be an Administrator again unless the opinions of active Members are either unanimously in favor and/or unopposed.

There will be a few things I will do differently if I am Administrator again, which are as follows:

1.) I will not talk to anyone from this Forum outside of these Forums, with exception to two people who have become close personal friends to whom I speak (via text or call) almost every single day. One is currently my best friend IRL, at this point, and the other is someone who I regularly advise on AP-Related matters.

In both cases, neither of them post here very often.

2.) In order to facilitate #1, I do have ongoing business with two different people from this Forum, which I will conclude as quickly as possible.

3.) An exception to #1 is anything that I have to do to handle the payouts for the WoV NFL Picks Game.

4.) Another exception to #1 is Facebook and any interviews that I do with people for the purpose of articles.

5.) I will not socially meet anyone outside of the Forums (except those covered by #1) for any reason.

6.) I will not meet up with anyone in a casino (other than those covered by #1) for any reason.

7.) I will not attend any WoV meetups of any kind.

That should prevent any future perceptions of bias in terms of my moderation. In general, I'm also much less inclined to meet people than I used to be, so this will not have a negative effect on me whatsoever.

Thank you for your interest, Mission. For the record, I do not request those conditions and happy to give you a new beginning. It should be noted that I see forum members socially often. I do my best to avoid favoritism, but if it still exists, so be it. If anything, I think I'm harder on those I know personally, to avoid a perception of favoritism. BBB also has many friends on the forum and I never had a problem with that.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

You're welcome!

That may be, but the events that started the ball rolling to my original resignation had to do with (correctly) applying the rules as they related to a known person with whom I had business. There was also a great amount of (incorrect) speculation that I had dealings with this person that involved other Forum Members. I had no knowledge whatsoever of his dealings with other people, at least, not any of the ones that were relevant to the complaints.

Therefore, if I don't talk to anyone outside of the Forums, we will avoid any possibility of a similar incident.

If you want to be considered, send the Wizard a PM. His opinion is likely the one that matters. GL

Why not you? I think you would make a good MOD.
