I'd also like to nominate
for the post.
Like Cedric, he has been actively contributing to this site from the beginning at a high quality. As a graduate student of physics, he represents precisely the sort of student we want to attract here (undergraduates being equally welcome I'd say). He's also shown a good attitude in response to questions and generally within the community, I'd like to think.
(edit by David) Sure, I'll accept the nomination. I really want to see this site succeed, and being a moderator during the beta would allow me to help that process along.
About me: As mentioned above, I'm a graduate student in physics, specifically in my third year of the PhD program at Penn State University. I'm doing research in high-energy particle phenomenology (the BFKL kernel, if anyone cares about the specifics). I've been a member of Physics Forums for about a year and a half, which has certainly influenced my idea of how this site could work. I also have a website which nobody looks at ;-) where I occasionally post some physics-related musings. I also have a hobby interest in computer programming, and to that end I've been a semi-active participant in Stack Overflow and the other original trilogy sites, so I have some idea of how the system works.
I tend to be awake at strange hours, usually after noon until some time in the wee hours of the morning local time. That puts me online from about 4:00 PM to 6:00 AM GMT, on average.
Regarding the issue of the question level: I would like to see this site develop into a place where research-level questions are welcome, and can hopefully have a decent chance of getting answered. But I'm not in favor of categorically excluding all questions below the graduate level, because I think if we try to do that, the site will fail. There are many questions about physics at the undergrad level that I would like to see this site address.
As stated in my answer to one of the "level questions," my preferred technique for controlling the level of the site is making sure that there are enough people asking the kinds of questions we want, rather than closing large numbers of questions.
