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!

OK. I know said I don't have the time to be a moderator. What with a job, a kid, music, theater and a life. But then I thought "If @Emilie can do it with two kids and a doctoral thesis, what am I whining about?"

Truth is, I will not be spending more time on the site than I am now. I just don't have it. I wish I could say I found some time lying around in an old box under the bed, but I did not. I will probably not be here mornings, evenings, or in the weekend. I use GDSE primarily to take my mind of work for a few minutes (it's a wonder what 'fresh eyes' can do for code quality). If there's a day of meetings, you might not see me that day. If there's a big deadline, I might not be on for a few days. If you think that might be a problem, don't vote for me.

As for my views on Community Culture, I'm a susbcriber to Jon Skeet's Covenant

Here are my answers to the list of questions. I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I've enjoyed writing them. Find me in chat for everything else.

A huge hello from me to all of you who are thought to vote in election!

I'm Mr.Online and in general when someone asks me to introduce myself I says: "Gamer's soul trapped inside of Designer's body and infused with developer like brain"

Why I nominated Myself?

To take a responsibility which may help/inspire me to stay more active in the site so I can contribute more and more to keep site a well maintained!

What I'll do as moderator?

Even though I never moderated site like this one, I'll try my best to keep in pace with other moderators so that I can prove myself as Helping Hand!

What I won't do as moderator?

I'm very busy boy who works in IT industry with 9-6 job XD so the main thing I'll avoid is "Staying active whole day", Which means I'll only moderate site in night time while my contributions to answers will be continued for whole day like it goes for now.

My answers on questionnaire might help you to know if I fits for the position or not :)

-Best Regards! From a candidate of moderator's election!! :D (my name will be generated automatically lol)

This election is over.
