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.
I'm JohnHC and I'm putting myself forward for a moderator position.
While bigger exchanges might garner more attention (I'm looking at you, Workplace), it's useful to have a nice little corner dedicated to freelancing specifically. And wouldn't it be nice to keep it fresh and clean and free of clutter? So it's time for me to give back and step up.
My moderation style is mostly hands off, but I am able to spot when intervention is required. I'm on Stack Exchange most days (answering questions on Overflow about SQL mostly), so I'm always around.
