The last cash contest I ran was a pretty big hit, so I am going to run another contest. I’ve said in the past that being a domain forum moderator isn’t an easy job, can cause personal and business conflicts, and it doesn’t generally pay well (if anything).
Forum moderators need to be able to diffuse problems effectively and maintain good relationships with people who may question their decisions and be rude to them in response to doing their job. Put simply, domain forum moderators have a difficult job for which they aren’t compensated very well.
I am seeking out your nominations for the best domain industry forum moderator. I will then run a poll with the nominees, and the winner of the vote will receive $200 from me via Paypal or check. No strings attached.
I will post the voting rules once the poll is up in a few days, but you are welcome to nominate a moderator in the comment section below. Feel free to post the person’s user name and the forum to be counted. Someone only needs to be nominated once to be eligible. Please only submit one nomination or your comment will be deleted.
Nominations will close on Friday, July 13th in the evening (my time) and the poll will be posted sometime early next week. I am currently traveling, so comments may take a bit longer to approve than usual.
