>I'd be interested in hearing more about being an administrator, time commitment wise anyway. That feels like a job I could do, and already kind of do IRL.
That really depends on what aspirations you have for OPchan and what role you want to play in the admin team.
If you're practical, you follow up on the bills getting paid, respond to requests and complaints, make sure that the mods do not overstep their bounds and enforce the rules as agreed upon.
You could also look for ways to get new people to the site, organize events (shoots, donation drives,...) and so on.
If you're technical, you could make sure everything works, that backups are properly being taken, plan for updates, maybe improve the site a bit or migrate the site to a different host if need be.
There is no set amount of time you need to put into it, but if you think you don't have the time now, I'd advise against running for admin.
>Are we allowed to nominate others?
Don't really see much use in doing that. The person needs to volunteer himself.
Of course, endorsements are welcome if you want to give them, but don't get carried away.
>MFW - I don't even know what does it take to be a mod
You enforce the agreed upon rules and try to check the site (and reports) whenever you can.
The hardest parts are:
1) making time to check the site (pref also parts of the site you're not interested in)
2) knowing when to be strict but fair and when to let things slide
3) thinking up funny ban messages
4) not become pic related
