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:

  1. Nomination
  2. Primary
  3. Election

Please participate in the moderator elections by voting, and perhaps even by nominating yourself to be a community moderator!

I feel I have been of good service to this site's users as a moderator, and a good partner to the other moderators. Additionally, knowing we are losing at least one moderator this round, and some of the other drama that has happened in the last year, I feel that this site's users deserve the option to vote for as much stability for the next year as possible.

I self-nominate; I find my participation in history.stackexchange to be satisfying and I'd like to continue. I hope that we can make a good site better.

History was the first site where I earned the "access to moderator tools", so it's where I first learned how much of this works. I'm currently highly active in Charcoal (2727 feedbacks and counting), and Meta Stack Exchange (25k+ rep). I consider myself a cool-headed leader, leading by example rather than fiat.

I nominate myself to continue as a moderator.

I believe that I have served the position well during my past term here, both in Meta discussions and guiding new users on the main site, as well as behind the scenes moderation. With the community's permission, I would very much like to continue.

I offer myself primarily to insure that an election can take place, since I have been only a member for a relatively short period as compared to the other applicants.

This election is over.
