Looking for a temporary Group Host

Hello everybody,

As you probably know, I'm in Fairfield County, Connecticut. Also as you probably know, we're about to get socked by Hurricane Sandy.

I can't guarantee I'll have Internet access. I'll be doing shelter work, too. I can't guarantee I'll be able to perform my hosting duties.

For possibly a week!

In August I was away camping, and at the last minute realized I wouldn't be able to host or a couple of days, so I had appointed Shadowrider host for the weekend. He had privately volunteered previously on an unrelated topic. Nothing happened, so the appointment went largely unnoticed.

Now that there's some warning and my foresight is working, I'd like there to discussion and consensus for a temp host.

Reply to this thread with a nomination (you can nominate yourself) and vote for that person by replying to the nomination.

Good luck!

8. For a temp host SiOhio would be a good choice.

if he/she is willing...


It's pretty easy, for the most part locking OT threads is the only duty. Especially for someone doing it as a PT gig bannings or getting tossed out would be looked upon in a bad light by anyone.

10. I nominate myself. I don't think it would be a big problem for a week.

 

I'm a union steward and used to dealing with conflict and shenanigans.

12. Shadow would get my vote.

 

We should keep the choices limited to those who have not openly advocated this group be removed from DU, use purity tests, troll hunt, or abuse the jury system with trivial alerts.

14. Stay safe! And thank you for the shelter work - that's hugely important

As for the hosting, I would just leave it alone: off-topic threads can be locked later, and there's never been an emergency that couldn't wait a week (or forever)...

however, I return to work tomorrow, I work nights and sleep during the day so my time is pretty limited.
I would support ShadowRider as a temp. host.
Stay safe and good luck.

20. If you are absolutely desperate then let me know.

Just let me get my computer working first!

Shadowrider sounds good to me, if he agrees to.

22. Best Wishes

Hope the damage from this storm is not significant and wish you and other adversaries well.

Good news if we lose power here in DC, you'll have significantly fewer posts to monitor with my absense. LOL.

Applaud your shelter work as well. Best wishes, stock up (and I don't mean with guns) and good luck.

24. Tally so far...

I count:
Shadowrider 8
SafeInOhio 4
Elliisonz 3
Tpaine 2
Pavepusher 2
rDigital 2
BenEzra 1


Okay, the winner with a solid plurality is Shadowrider. I'll knight him immediately and let him know.

Thanks everybody, for your well-wishes! I'll be okay; send the vibes to south Jersey. They're going to need it!
