Once we begin open beta, the forum load will increase faster than I can keep up. Therefore, I would like to appoint a couple of forum admins in advance to help me out. I've received several PMs that name a couple of exceptional users who have made an effort to be as helpful as possible. So, continuing in this vein, I would like you to do the same.

IMPORTANT: Do not nominate yourself for forum admin. In fact, this would probably hurt your chances.
IMPORTANT: Do not post your nomination in this thread. Send me a PM!

I am looking for users with the following qualities:
- Posts often.
- Often helps out with common/recurring problems.
- Respectful and patient.
- Not overly burdened with other BOINC projects. If you're the administrator of a project and a forum admin for 3 others, you might be a bit distracted.
- Prior BOINC experience is a plus.
- Impartial with respect to teams, nationalities, etc.

If you think you know someone with these qualities, then please send me a PM.

Thanks!

And especially for that, I changed my avatar on the forums I moderate to the caricature that looks like me. Just so you know where not to be my enemy. :-)

Thank you Scott and everyone that 'voted' for me.

Heh, I will keep my usual avatar. It's a guardian of the Wat Phra Kaew temple in Bangkok. Fits the job ;)

Thanks for the vote of confidence to the project and those of you who recommended me.
