The reason I suggest making both a mod is because the one that loses is gonna have hurt feelings. LL already thinks the board is corrupt. You know how emotional Nixy can be. The perfect solution is to make them a team in the forum. I'm sure neither would mind sharing it, although I don't know that for sure. LOL.
I wouldn't mind it being removed from the censored word list, but I'd rather that I kept a monopoly on the username at least here. At some other sites there are other people that sign up as s4. I've even seen some that used a couple of my other nicknames.
