    I nominated you. Should I retract?

    One of the major changes here is VIPs no longer make rules, they serve as Forum Advisors to the Admin Team.

    There will be other changes but those will wait for the new Advisor Team to be formed.

    Nominations should be private messaged to a moderator. The more the merrier. If someone gets multiple nominations they may have a better shot than someone who only gets one.

    Also, don't forget that a lengthy, recent infraction history would disqualify someone.

    A flamebaiter for VIP? What are they thinking.
