We have accepted Rebecca RVT and Henders' nomination as a pro tem Moderators. Congratulations! Their access should be enabled shortly.
We recently posted a nomination thread to appoint another moderator; unfortunately, we only had one user willing to step up and we need more users to fill in another vacancy.
Ideally Moderators are elected by the community, but until the community is large enough to hold a proper election → we *need* three provisional Moderators ← to fill those roles. It is critical to the continuation of this site.
Please nominate yourself below if interested; otherwise, please nominate folks you would like to see become provisional moderators for this site. Your input will provide valuable insight to help us make our selections. You can read more about the process here: Moderators Pro Tempore.
The Nomination Process:
- Nominate a user by posting an 'answer' below. Each nomination should be a separate answer. Use the template at the bottom of this post to complete your nomination.
- Self nominations are encouraged. This is a volunteer activity, so users should not feel obligated to accept these positions. A self-nomination is simply a way to say, "I am very much interested in this, so let my record speak for itself."
- Tell us about the candidates. Nominations can include links to other activities like Area 51 participation, participation in other sites, or any relevant thoughts/links that may help us make an informed decision.
- Nominees! Please indicate your acceptance by editing the answer to accept/decline the nomination. And please ensure your profile email is correct so we can contact you. Optionally, you are encouraged to write a bit about yourself following your acceptance.
