(Self-)Nomination for caird coinheringaahing
- My chat profile
- I'm active pretty much all days, between 10:00 UTC and 3:00 UTC
I'm extremely active in chat (my activity lines up with TNB's room activity almost perfectly, and, as pointed out by Adám, I am one of 2 nominees who is "frequently in the room"). I post around 100 messages a day, and average around 700 a week. I also have a solid amount of knowledge into the mechanics of being a room owner (I'm an RO in more than 20 rooms), and so are more than familiar with the tools.
Additionally, I'm often the "buzzkill" user whenever fun but noisy conversations happen and I regularly direct users to the Sandbox when they start messing around with chat features in TNB. That doesn't mean I hate fun, but it does mean that I know when an off-topic or noisy conversation needs to stop.
I also started the discussion into needing more room owners, pushed the mods (repeatedly) to hold this election, and I created OldSandboxPosts, a bot which looks to be a very helpful chat resource.
Overall, I believe that I'm level-headed and experienced with chat moderation, and that I have a good judge of the line between a "fun conversation" and "useless noise".
Why not me?
I would say that I can be more immature than I'd like in a room owner. I can't speak to how others see me, but that's definitely something I personally am wary of.
As I said, I'm also often the "buzzkill" user, and can be pretty strongly against conversations that others may find fun. This is often subjective, and I find myself typically leaning towards the stricter side more often, which can annoy people who want to have fun in The Nineteenth Byte.
I'm also active around the same time as a lot of users, so my "moderation coverage" doesn't extend particularly far past most others'
