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

Full elections have three phases and an optional fourth phase (Primary):

  1. Question Collection
  2. Nomination
  3. Primary
  4. Election

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

I don’t have the highest rep on this site, but as well as having worked for a distillery, managed real ale and cocktail bars, and distilled my own whisky and gin, I have also been a moderator on various Stack Exchange sites for over 10 years, so I know how the systems work, the behaviours needed, and the patience and tolerance to help a site grow without troubles.

I am more than willing to fulfill the need as a moderator for this site.

I am regularly the most regular person on the site and often flag posts that need attention in whatever domain!

I am willing to answer any questions that may arrive hither-forth!

I am also a moderator on another Stack Exchange site.

This election is over.
