    Tribal Spaceman Oh, OK.

    I much prefer talking about my favourite music, games, TV shows and movies on Popjustice than I do on social media, that's for sure.

  2. We really need someone who will edit gifs out of spoiler tags again if one of the current mods has messed with them.

    Agreed. And on that point I think this would be a good mix of female mods, should they want to take it on:

    @Empty Shoebox
    @Phonetics Boy

    Who are the mods who aren’t white men? I genuinely don’t know.

  4. To generalise the whole internet as messy is not it and completely missing my point but I feel certain parts of the forum and some rules just needs rejuvenating but it’s another topic of conversation that could be had another time in a more suitable place.

  5. Since I was tagged here, let me throw my vote to @superultra, @londonrain, @ohnostalgia and @beyoncésweave, and @Island for the comeback corner. I'll never use the main forums again for the sake of my health, but they sure deserve more competent people overseeing them, should they feel up to the task.

    To my knowledge, @beyoncésweave and I are the only POCs who have been tagged in this thread so far (I second the nomination for @beyoncésweave and obviously am very honoured by all of you who tagged me).

    @K94 springs to mind as someone who would fit the bill well.

  7. Me reading the thread and not getting a single nomination...

    Dddd in all seriousness I was going to nominate you and @WowWowWowWow but I was kind of distracted by the POC/female discussion.
  9. People are just not ready for a reign of terror where membership is granted on how well you know Samantha Tamania Anne Cecilia Mumba's lyrics.

  10. Haha well thank you, but you're absolutely right, getting more representation than white men is far more important.

    Anyone without the full lyrics to Gotta Tell You tattooed on their body will be perma-banned.

    I work far better as a forum heel and I've accepted my role. I would have no fun as a moderator. Why clean the mess when you can make the mess?
  12. If only I’d spent my years not being a prat in every part of the forum other than Tv+Film...
    Well I would enjoy one or more of @londonrain @OspreyQueen @ohnostalgia and @Island would be wonderful for the Comeback Crematorium.
    Also I’ll throw some bubbly in the fridge for @Robsolete
    Remorque, ohnostalgia, Island and 5 others like this.
  13. I’m a bi black woman, so I definitely have the potential to handle controversies regarding identity and intersectionality.
  14. I think
    are excellent choices and provide some much needed gender and/or racial diversity (as well as queer representation beyond the "G").

    I also think the new moderators should be people who are pretty active in P&J...

    @Island would be great for the comeback corner, as well as @ohnostalgia for the charts and rates subforum.

    Well, in that case, the forum has never needed you more and I fully support you being a mod xx
  16. A discussion hub on the internet not being a cess pit of performative outrage is pretty miraculous in 2020 I would say. When people on here disagree about things it's because they actually care about them, not because they're looking for a gotcha moment or trying to score points for their team.

    I actually don't know how many mods there are on here but hopefully any new ones will be appreciative of nuance.

    Maybe we can whittle down a shortlist and get them to lip sync for their lives.

    I've deleted a few posts that don't really meet the no-drama of one of Somebody's initial groundrules. Do keep suggestions coming though!

  18. It’s extremely flattering to have been nominated by so many of you, but unfortunately I’m not sure I’d be up to the job. I will, however, throw my support behind the following:

    @Laura Vanderbooben
    @Island for Comeback Corner (because we need at least one person there to clean it up a bit)
