I was actually going to make my main post in this thread, coincidentally, about the literature and film section, so Sakura's post five minutes ago is convenient. I have several years of moderating two forums before this one (a Bleach one and a Persona one), Dad actually being able to attest to my performance on the Persona one, and they've tempered my understanding of the position compared to most people's.
Being a contentious individual aside, a short manifesto is appropriate for any candidate, so I communicate a desire to invest in the literature section. It was never popular or active, and it was generally always genre over literary fiction, but literature (alongside philosophy and scripture, as I communicated to Dad), especially as a reflection of reality, prompts endless passionate and mutually meaningful discussion. Multivariate perspectives on the work (death of the author) give literary discussion, after the very experience of the text, a special trait as an artistic means to communicate intellectually and share oneself interpersonally, crossing the gulf to compassion and sincerity debate and soliloquy fail to. Anyway, I'd probably focus on short stories at first so even the less read member or literary members can easily find a pdf and interact, have discussions and archive them, likely start with Borges as an excellent short story writer and eventually to something not very long and formidable like the Divine Comedy, which can be divided by cantos or Paradise Lost divided by halves of books and discussed regularly.
I have a professional understanding of the moderator role, citing my earlier post regarding Fusion. Reiterating, strategic criteria for successful moderation predicates discrimination on the non-chimerical and explicit traits of objectivity, impartiality, and general competence— all of which I exhibit exceedingly. Competence encompasses qualities like adaptability (critical to a unique sociopolitical environment like YCM, visible especially through my extreme emotional control and fortitude before scrutiny) and intelligence (critical for all success), and these, in synthesis, enable the person, in YCM's case, like the scintillating autodidact or polymath, participation in any section with a rapid and peerless understanding of what makes that section tick, prompt and effective action preceded by ideation in those sections, stellar communication with members and cooperation with their concerns, questions and the implementation/scrutiny of the aforementioned ideas and a metaphysical grasp of social theory relevant to keeping old members and engaging new ones. These are traits I exhibit especially when I choose to, and in this position, I would always choose to.
Ah, and of course, I can be very kind, cordial and social. I'm socially eclectic: my relationships with people across the plane of ideologies is solid by virtue of a severe and indomitable care for intellectual honesty and general courtesy. These are important for a community leader to have and, in the position, I would express a paradigmatic regard for them. These are more fitting for YCM-specific moderators, invoking Black's eminent demand of not wanting a mere police officer to moderate (note that it's not that easy to become a police officer, though) and the criticism of my long-term antisocial behavior, dispelling both simultaneously with the utmost solemnity.
Relevant to the recent climate and to the members is a rare willingness to express my contentious opinion where I must. I'm rather well-known if for nothing else my controversial behavior and ideas and, in the early 2010s, I very often criticized moderation (and still continue to when invoked) where I believe a true error lies. As a lover of philosophy, Jonathan Swift and Huxley, I can assure the will to scrutinize the team properly, which is a very intellectually demanding task and communicating enthusiastically with the ambit of members to ensure the memberbase's primordial and harmonious consciousness its divine right as the impetus of all moderation action, and I would stand for nothing less (thus my challenging the others when needed).
I'm available all the time like the others. I check the site at least a dozen times a day and I've always been very punctual; I do not read a PM and then forget it unless it was a large group PM (Sleepy can attest to this, in fact).
My possession of these traits, alongside a general intellectual appreciation, sincere love of people (I don't have to agree with them: Black, CowCow, Polaris, Night, et cetera) and indestructible willpower (Joseph can try to 1v1 me on this) are why I would succeed in the position, especially considering I have plans when the precedent for this election is choosing between individuals with generally impromptu plans. Thank you for your time.
I love you.
