nomination phase, any community member in good standing with more than 300 reputation may nominate themselves to be a community moderator.
Nominees are required to construct a small, freely editable introduction to describe why they might make a good community moderator. Comments are active during the length of the nomination phase – please comment freely, particularly if there is any way a nominee introduction can be improved or refined to be more clear.
All nominees are displayed in
most recently nominated first order.
Nominations are not binding; nominees may withdraw at their discretion at any point during the nomination phase.
After 4 days, the top 30 nominees, ordered by reputation, advance to the
primary phase. However, if there are 10 or fewer candidates, we skip directly to the election phase.
On Stack Exchange, we believe the core moderators should come
from the community, and be elected by the community itself through popular vote. We hold regular elections to determine who these community moderators will be.
Community moderators are
accorded the highest level of privilege on our community, and should themselves be exemplars of positive behavior and leaders within the community.
Our general criteria for moderators is as follows:
patient and fair
leads by example
shows respect for their fellow community members in their actions and words
open to some light but firm moderation to keep the community on track and resolve (hopefully) uncommon disputes and exceptions
Every election has three phases:
Please participate in the moderator elections by voting, and perhaps even by nominating yourself to be a community moderator!
