I can believe how many nerds there are in this post, it's easy to see who would be appropriate as a mod. Let's start with the "easy" part, we have all seen how well Slappywag/Kad/Vexo have done in the past. The real question is how to select the new mods: -choose a valuable poster such as Faction/Souv although he is able to flamebait? I'm pretty sure that if he will be "elected mod" he won't abuse his power. Does it really matter what happens in the RR? I myself find it amusing what goes on the RR, all the flames + and insults flying are great for burning time. RR is known to be "mod clean" so people behave that way. I've never really seen much people from the RR behave in an unadequate way outside the RR; on the proper AJ forums (apart from the obvious Faction). Another thing you might want to consider is the post count; take Faile for example, he always posts useful things and does it willingly, in my opinion he is the perfect mod . Just my two cents.
Edit: Would you really like someone like Annihalte? In his short mod app, the only thing he mentioned are how beautiful he must irl. Sure this obv's a joke but still in my opinion silly. (+ Do you really want a rogue carried by
PvE gear playing scrub druid-roge talking about his arena success as a mod lol?)
