The 2011 Community Moderator Election is now underway!

Community moderator elections have three phases:

  1. Nomination phase
  2. Primary phase

  • Is this ... real? No warning, and the election page doesn't have any details about whether we're adding to us pro tems or if we have to run again or what.... – Matthew Read Nov 28 '11 at 20:53
  • If the past is any guide, Pro Tem Moderators need to nominate themselves if they want to stay on as moderators. – ale Nov 28 '11 at 21:08
  • And Shog9 did recently say "stand by for news" when I asked about elections. – ale Nov 28 '11 at 21:22
  • @MatthewRead you should have received an email... Al is correct, these are official elections - pro tems need to nominate if they'd like to continue moderating. – Rebecca Chernoff Nov 29 '11 at 5:42
  • @RebeccaChernoff Hmm, nope. My spam filter's been overactive lately but there's nothing there. Thanks for confirming though. – Matthew Read Nov 29 '11 at 6:01
  • @Rebecca: No e-mail here either. – ale Nov 29 '11 at 14:06
  • Yikes! That's not good. We're looking into it. – Rebecca Chernoff Nov 29 '11 at 16:45
