Proposed on Forum Community and think this is a great idea. He is the only one who ever posts anything of value on that forum, and Nym would basically stay mod anyway with his new extended powers. Plus Nym isn't on the forum so much anymore, and that one desperately needs an active mod with all the junk on it. Who agrees?

It makes a lot of sense.  He's on that board a lot, he's basically the only quality poster there, and he actually knows all the ins and outs there, a board with a foreign posting culture that most of us are unfamiliar with.  The 2012 board is strange territory for me (though not as alien as the What Ifs board), and it'd be good to see an active, intelligent moderator there that knows what's going on.  Nym can share the board and watch over it as God-mod while Morden does the day-to-day stuff.

Like it or not, this site was originally about US Presidential Elections, and that board will be our flagship board (despite being one of the lowest-quality ones).  We need a mod that can improve the culture around there.

Also, Morden would be a stellar addition to the mod clique.  His wry, ironic wit would be appreciated in many a discussion.

Nym's modadmin status has streamlined our jobs tremendously.  Your minimum task would be to go to the Post Moderation Board, see all the reported posts on your board, and choose what to do about them.  As you'd be sharing that board with Nym, that's not too terribly much of a task.  There's more you can do, but that's all you'd have to do.

Your board is a bit freer of the personal vendettas, except in terms of people like Pounding the Rock, so you might not have a half-dozen new reports the second BRTD and Kalwejt bump into each other.

That board does need a mod, but it doesn't need to be a new mod.  Ernest would be great for it, as I've said before.
