Shouldn't you just PM those you feel fit the position, and move on from there? Is there any particular reason you're asking us to nominate people if you don't want it to be a popularity contest?
I've already PM'd the person I feel is the best mod addition. I just wanted to see what you guys thought. If we made a poll, and everyone voted for (fill in the blank), then I'm the asshole for not trying to make (fill in the blank) a mod.
Plus, it gives any nominee a chance to say they don't want it. I'm sure many here don't want to be a mod.

I tentatively support HG but fear having my title and avatar changed. Also I know that we've never implemented any word filters, but I fear that he would learn how to do it and turn "interstateeight" into "Weak Shit Superfan" or something.

I know you were all curious, so here's the message Know sent me. Sorry if I'm violating your confidence, buddy:
Sometimes, when I'm moderating these boards, I get so lonely, and I wish I had a right hand man. Someone I can trust. Someone with a chiseled jawline and chest hair that would make a 70s Bond girl swoon right the fuck off her feet. Someone who isn't afraid to lay the banhammer on some petulant 14-year-old who found their way over here after Coachella sold out and is determined to treat the board like their own personal Livejournal despite your constant assertions that this is not, in fact, an individual's blog, but is in fact a web resource for the exchange of ideas, opinions, and insults.
I think you are that man.
Will you join me, I8, in ruling these fine boards? Together, we can stamp out repetitive threads. We can lay waste to people who abuse commas and the shift key. We can lay an unholy IP ban on squatchcreep. We can locate posts that demean or disparage the portrait of perfection that is Modest Mouse, and then we can sign those board members up for fetish porn. And I don't mean foot or bondage stuff. I mean shit that would make inhabitants of the filthiest clubs in the Castro wince.
If you think you're man enough for it, and let's be honest, if those dreamy yet steely eyes of yours are any indication, you are, then join me. I turgidly await your response.
xoxo, Your Fearless Leader
P.S. To show you that I am not joking, here is my greatest secret: I am Gunther."
