If you’re ever looking for a North American based part-or-full timer to help support this position, I’d love to put my hat in the ring. I’ve got 20 years of computer and video game industry experience which I feel would serve BGA well!

"You are English native speaker.

Only native english speakers here are in England. No one else has english as a native tongue.

Only native english speakers here are in England. No one else has english as a native tongue.
Peoples are not forced to live where they're born.
And bilingual peoples that have English as one of their two native language exist all across Europe.

EDIT: and I almost forgot that there is Ireland and Malta as countries with English as official language.

I'd say with Brexit it would seem less probable. Those people are few in numbers and even less so use this site. Coincidentaly enough, i know people who speak english as a second or third language better than native tongue speakers.

I'd do it for free, but i am not a native english speaker.

Since you are looking for someone from Europa, i'd have to tell you, you will get close to no application from anywhere but England/UK.

Second of all, i consider my diplomatic skills lacking in relation to the site administration. Yes, i do think i can menage Premium playes and the Moderator team if i am appointed to the job, but...

You know what? I think i would be great for the position because i am willing to do it for free.

Sad to say, english is my second language.

But based on what i see in the questionary all this is null and void. Basically: The questions are too simple. You can't judge a person based on the information we are asked to provide. You won't know if that person is diplomatic and fair. In fact, the only question that stands out is - "d: Is English your native language?"

I do agree. I don't see how a native and only a native English speaker should be hired. What's the advantage? If you're fluent in English, what's the problem? Or what about professional translators, an interpreter... The number of candidates are considerably limited due to this rather strange condition.
