1.) A person should have 1000 posts in the Debtcc forum, a minimum of 6 months in the community and be admitted into the Hall of Fame.
2.) A person must be nominated by at least five other members who have sent an email or private message to Polly /Vikas.

I think the 1000 post deal is irrelavant. It should be quality based,not quantity.
The nomination proccess seems unequivocal at face value.However,I can see it running into biasness.

Please understand that we had to have a starting point.

I agree with Road also, anyone can post useless post to get to the 1000 mark but most dont' have time to do this. I've gotten loads of good, helpful information from people here with way less than 1000 posts and also gotten great advice from some with more than!
Good Luck Polly,

Now what was the point in putting it up for discussion back then, when the ultimate outcome is really only up to Polly now???
I don't like it. I have already stated my position back then, as did other members/mods, and so I won't waste my words again in this post.

I agree with this!! I've read alot of posts where the person is basically just summing up what the person before them had said.
This are two other things I agree with :)

Since the mission statement portrays moderators as mere housekeepers, whose construction is mainly to remove spam, I agree with Cajun that all the credentials (# of posts, membership term, etc) really are not necessary. Under this scope a mod really does not need to know anything about "debt" or even actively participate, in order to press the delete button and 'can the spam'.

Also, who's to say what posts are helpful and what are not? What I'm trying to say is, I can see a subjective area opening up here which can't be good.

I wholeheartedly agree with the nomination thing...Sure, someone could petition for nominations, but the final call is going to be up to Polly and Mike. I trust their judgement.
