I wonder if there are going to be any more election type things in the future for mentors? If so I'm definitely going to be running!
and are personally invited by the ST.
I'm guessing not.
I think it's better this way, though. Many people just want the position for the status. I will admit that I'm one of those people, which is why it's best that the ST is picking the mods (mentors, same thing) rather than the community, which may be biased towards the more popular Scratcher. Plus, as the saying goes: “those who do not wish for power are the most deserving of it.”
…Or something along those lines.
