Shills and Whores

We will be electing 6 moderators and 2 alternates via single transferable vote.Wikipedia The mods are the 1st-6th highest-ranked candidates of the STV vote. The alternates are the 7th and 8th highest-ranked candidates of the STV vote.


1: There are no rules against self nomination.
2: When nominating somebody else, it is considerate to inform them with {{modnotice}} so that they don't miss the opportunity to accept the nomination.
3: Nominees should acknowledge the nomination by signing next to their name.
4: Nominees should accept or decline their nomination and move their name to the right section.
5: The propaganda and misinformation supplied by our candidates for supreme leadership may be found here, if anyone bothers to post any.
Timing note: Nominations must be accepted before midnight UTC on the closing date, this may be different to your timezone. Any nominations not accepted will be treated as "presumed inactive".

Nominee requirements

  • @AMassiveGay ShabiDOO 10:15, 1 November 2021 (UTC)
    Thanks, but i would be at best unreliable as a mod AMassiveGay (talk) 19:34, 2 November 2021 (UTC)
  • @Shabidoo Correkt (pester) 13:15, 1 November 2021 (UTC)
    There are already at least seven stellar candidates. ShabiDOO 21:53, 2 November 2021 (UTC)
    I encourage anyone with the time and interest to run. Bongolian (talk) 23:23, 2 November 2021 (UTC)
    I think what Shabidoo means (has said this on Uncyclopedia too) is that they didn't want to run, they only would out of fear of someone else winning, but I'm not 100% sure so don't quote me on that. American time change coming up November 7, Andrew5 (talk) 01:40, 3 November 2021 (UTC)
    Yeah, I'd only really run for mod if there were insufficient candidates or there was a chance of a disruptor/dipshit winning. I might run for the board next election though :) ShabiDOO 09:37, 3 November 2021 (UTC)
  • @GrammarCommie I decline this nomination due to currently lacking the time and ability to perform the required duties. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 22:58, 2 November 2021 (UTC)
  • @RWRW Correkt (pester) 19:38, 2 November 2021 (UTC)
    Thanks, but not this time. --RWRW (talk) 10:39, 3 November 2021 (UTC)
  • @Christopher Bongolian (talk) 16:34, 1 November 2021 (UTC)
    I’m not active enough to be a mod at the moment, I could’ve gone a good few more days without realising I was nominated if I wasn’t emailed about it. Perhaps next year. Christopher (talk) 11:50, 3 November 2021 (UTC)
  • @Sqrt-1 Monet Ye 19:49, 3 November 2021 (UTC)
    Thanks much, but I believe I might not be active enough. Besides, there are other great candidates who probably know better.𝗦𝗾𝗿𝘁-𝟭 talk stalk 07:16, 4 November 2021 (UTC)
  • @Leucippus GeeJayK (talk) 02:15, 4 November 2021 (UTC)
    Thanks for the nomination brother—I’m flattered. However, I’ve only been on RW for little over a year, and I don’t think that I currently have the skills that a mod requires. LeucippusSalva veritate 18:27, 4 November 2021 (UTC)
  • @ScepticWombat Monet Ye 19:49, 3 November 2021 (UTC)
    I really appreciate the nomination, but I’m currently not active enough here on RW to fulfil the important responsibilities of a mod. ScepticWombat (talk) 07:21, 6 November 2021 (UTC)
  • @Bob M Monet Ye
    Thanks, but I'll be giving that a miss.Bob"Life is short and (insert adjective)" 20:52, 6 November 2021 (UTC)

Invalid nomination

  • @Jah Jah (talk) 06:48, 2 November 2021 (UTC)
    I think I will do a good job. Jah (talk) 06:48, 2 November 2021 (UTC)
    Insufficient edits, as per RationalWiki:Moderator elections. Bongolian (talk) 06:55, 2 November 2021 (UTC)
  • @GeeJayK Correkt (pester) 19:30, 1 November 2021 (UTC)
    Thank you for the nomination. Started the year almost getting banned. Might as well end it as a mod. GeeJayK (talk) 19:49, 2 November 2021 (UTC) I realized during a totally unrelated conversation on the support chat than I'll be a father in a few weeks. I still want really to run, and I don't think being a father will actually prevent me to fulfill my eventual job as a mod, but since one of the tenets of my campaign would be the fact that I wouldn't under almost any circunstance resign or LANCB, just like during my campaign for the board in August. Hereby, It's probably better to wait a year just to be sure. If I am nominated I'll definitely run in 2022. GeeJayK (talk) 02:50, 4 November 2021 (UTC)
