Ok, so a few days ago Ningmaster Katie was in the Nerdfighters chat, and I asked her how one becomes a Ningmaster. She said to wait for John to say they need more of them and then apply. And what happens within 24 hours of that conversation? Yes, it seems as if it were fate.
So, here is my hat to be tossed into the ring... er.. Ning.
I wish to become a Chat or Forum Ningmaster. I already far exceed the qualities needed for chat Ningmaster, William can vouch for our epic battle against the troll. I am already a regular on the chat, just ask the other regulars who are on during peak hours like myself.
First, a bit about myself:
I’m Christopher Cox, but please call me Chris.
Height: 6’5” (i thought this was important, as it's the first thing everyone seems to notice)
Education: Sophomore at Northern Arizona University (anthropology degree, looking into the Peace Corps)
P/N: Ninjas (Duh... seriously though pirates are cool... i guess..)
But why would I make a good Ningmaster, you say? Well, dealing with trolls and a vicious forum environment are kind of my thing. I am happily a regular member of The Flat Earth Society
. Usually the mere thought of this place makes the giant squids of anger swell up in fury. The Flat Earth Society(or FES) is a cesspool for trolls, pornography, and of course the very angry people. Allow me to demonstrate: here is a post that I got from the front page when writing this.
“How the **** can you people think the earth is flat when you got all this scientific proof? So where the **** is the edge? (or what you call "The end of the earth").
Ah well start flaming me you retards.”
This is an average day in the park for me, people like this are a dime a dozen. I think the Nerdfighter trolls are nothing compared to the FES trolls. Especially when our defenses were breached and male genitalia was slathered across the whole forum… That is not to say we have only trolls. Many discussions have golden nuggets of physics and logical debate.
So lets see.. I have the tolerance for new ideas, the stamina it takes to withstand wave after wave of trolling, the eye for a well-thought-out discussion, a reputation in chat as “the big brother” loved by all, and.. oh right! I almost forgot to mention my free time in between work and class that will allow me to carry out any duties needing of doing. I will be able to easily spot the trolls, calm down the agravated folks, and keep the fun flowing. I know the responsibilty, and I'm up to it. I have held steady relationships and jobs in the past, and know what it means to be committed to something you love.
Oh and I should also mention my real-life based accomplishments, why not?
I was the Founder and President of my high school debate team, I was given the title of “Conflict Resolution Specialist” by my F.I.R.S.T. robotics team, I was a “Poetry Out Loud” finalist among five others in my school of five hundred, I have volunteered to decrease suck in soup kitchens on Native American lands near me, and I have been told that I’m a really nice guy. I can also make a mean Subway sandwich.
Given all these things, I would not only love being a Ningmaster simply because it’s awesome, but I would be really good at it. Who would be this good and love it that much??
You’re looking at him.
So, please consider all that I have said, and remember it was fate that made you read this, just as it was fate that I wrote it, and just as it was meant to be that you should call on someone like myself to hold the title of Ningmaster.
I look foreword to your reply!
