Yeah but nominations and refusals are a better system than just waiting for volunteers. This way people will know others are interested in them and might feel more comfortable about joining in.

But we've already got months of people lined up and it's only been a few hours. To counter I'd say this is a way of forcing people who aren't comfortable with it to refuse, openly, in public. Some users like to blend into the background, that's their way, let the users who want the attention seek it and the others can continue to enjoy the forum

Nominations have to be accepted, otherwise no thread ... they're really only a "here, would ya?" as far as this is concerned.

Easy, lads!

Um ... there isn't an absolute, can-not-be-changed rule really.

We've tended to do it that way (as have other forums who do similar) because otherwise you tend to use up the potential victims guests too quickly ... 'tis a finite pool.

However, if people feel there are good reasons for making a change .... ?

Yeah it's better to have one at a time me thinks works better that way. Noclight suppose to really just focus on one person at a time.

I'll nominate myself then so ye can slot me in after whoever was the last one
