    Eric,

    Good day sir. May I first say THANK YOU, for this site and the fair and open way it is managed. I loosely represent the Survival and Preparedness forum. We think we have some special situations, and believe we have a solution.

    First the situation, we at the Survival and Preparedness Forum have almost a completely different topic from all other forums. We loosely relate to the other firearms forums on this site, but we also have a few special things like food storage and water storage safety, correctly practicing these two items is as important as firearms safety. All of them will kill you if you don’t follow the rules. Special cases of news oriented for people who prepare are posted. The world watched as unprepared Katrina victims rioted in the streets, we also watched but from a different perspective. We want to find out the lessons from that tragedy to make sure we are better prepared for disasters of a similar nature by applying them to food, water, security, and evacuation. We do not want to be forced to rely on the federal, state, and local governments, to provide for our families and ourselves.

    This brings us to our proposed solution. Those who complain of a problem but propose no solution are part of the problem.

    All of these things and more combined have led us to take a poll for a possible moderator(s) for the Survival & Preparedness forum. This will allow us the ability to “sticky” universal topics to reduce the number of repeat questions, and provide a FAQ with basic information for people new to preparedness and how-to’s for people caught in a situation beyond their control. These topics can be lifesaving for those in that situation. These special topics can be “Stickied” by those who know these topics best. As you have probably seen except for one individual (who you removed) we police ourselves and cause no problems for anyone. Please read some of the nominated posters threads and responses and I’m sure you will come to the conclusion they are fair minded, level headed, and will not take their responsibility lightly.

    A vote was taken these are our nominations

    LongGun1 -26
    GoreLicks-10
    Pervs114- 9
    Myth-9


    Thank you for your consideration of this topic.
