Hey all, I am running for Minister of Discussion. How lovely! :D
Here’s a bit about me and why I should be in charge.

1. I’ve been a part of this site for a while now, and so anyone who’s anyone knows me.

2. I’ve got leadership experience out the wazoo! I know how to lead, and I DON’T TAKE NO GUFF FROM NOBODY!

3. I don’t have good communication skills. I have GREAT communication skills. I can type pretty well, and my grammar isn’t bad. Plus, I’m willing to listen to members of this site and share my views with them. I’m not just going to MoD from the shadows.

4. I have no life. Really, I don’t. I spend most of my time in front of the computer, and most of THAT time on brickfilms. So I’ve got plenty of time to spare helping the community.

5. Now here’s some ideas I’ve got for the community:
Editing for content – I don’t see too many inappropriate things posted here on the forums, and I want to keep it that way. If I do see lots of foul language or sexual content or other stuff too harsh for the wee little young’uns, then I’ll make sure to clean it up!

Topic Movement – From time to time I see a topic posted in the wrong forum and it wouldn’t be hard at all for me to move it appropriately. It’s all those small things that add up to keep the forums look nice and clean, though. :)

Community forum – My opponent seems to take a disliking to seemingly ‘random’ threads appearing in the Community section. However, I disagree on this issue. I believe the Community section should have at least some of those fun threads were people can just post as they wish (like my checkers thread! :D ). It should be the animation-related threads that remain super-serious. I will however cut down on forum clutter by making “Coffee Shop”-style threads more obvious so that little stuff people want to post can be shared there, instead of having dozens of useless threads piling up.

6. What other unique qualities can I add to this ministry? Well, first off… I’m not the Doctor. So that alone should be enough to make you want to vote for me and not him. Secondly, I’m not very strict. So I’m not going to censor every little potty word you happen to say, as long as you aren’t spamming or going overboard with profanity. Plus I got patience, and respect and all that other jazz.

HAPPY RAINBOWS, VOTE FOR ME!

Alright! With Shale’s support, I can do ANYTHING! :D

Another thing I should add to my campaign is that I don’t sleep, which means I can be online to do MoD duties late at night (which is prime posting hours for people in a different time zone).

If it goes out at all, Night Owl.

Darn, Night Owl, you beat me to quoting T.S. Eliot in reference to this site. I was waiting for an fitting opportunity, you see…

This is the way Brickfilms.com ends
This is the way Brickfilms.com ends
This is the way Brickfilms.com ends

I hope not.

Anyway, you have my support, Ænema, even if I don’t know how to type your name.

-Sméagol, who is not one to talk in that regard.

If you read the guide lines, they say no “Mud Slinging”.

I can guarantee you there isn’t any mud on these boots.
That was more of a sarcastic, light-humored remark. But I do believe I have what it takes to be MoD more than you do (otherwise, why would I run?). I guess we shall see who the better man is come election time.

I’m glad to see I have support from some senior members, which is what I was hoping for. I know quite a large amount of people have migrated to Schlaeps’ site, and all I want is to make brickfilms.com more warm and friendly, enticing some of those who have moved to also remain active members here.

I was wondering who could I nominate for this position, but since you’re deciding to run, I don’t need to. I think it’s fair to say you’re the best out of the candidates, good luck.

EDIT: I made a sig banner, too.

Ahh! Sarcasm. Would that indicate that your intended meaning was that you actually are The Doctor (and pursuing the tried and true Lamp/Aled/Alex campaign tactic)? Or is it that you really think people should prefer to vote for The Doctor?

Okay, so maybe it wasn’t “sarcastic.” But I was just trying to get the point across to him that I’m not THAT arrogant, and that I wasn’t totally bashing on him.

Or maybe I really am The Doctor… <_ < >_>
