I am more that willing to act as a moderator! :) I used to be a moderator on Libraries.SE before the site was unfortunately closed, and I have a lot of experience with the network (I have 17k rep on Arqade, for example). Stack Exchange is one of my passions, and I love seeing sites grow and helping them become super awesome and full of good quality content ...

I'm with Ashley on this, when it comes to that. I'm an active moderator on Photo.SE and have had a lot of experience in helping keep the site moving (usually by not jumping in, but sometimes you have to) and know what I'd be getting myself into as a consequence. I'm also a huge animal lover and I've had dogs, cats, fish, turtles, hamsters, guinea pigs, ...

We (Stack Exchange) will handle what the community can't while we look for pro-tem moderators. This mostly includes: Approving suggested edits, since it will be a little while before anyone has the rep to do so Handling spam or abuse Closing of wildly problematic questions Removing answers that were clearly meant as follow up chatter Cleaning up comments as ...

I'll volunteer too. I'm active on multiple SE sites, and have been the moderator pro tem on parenting.se for more than 2 years now. I'm big on using meta as a tool for policy and scope definition (just ask the people on scifi.se!), and I'm very familiar with the beta site process here, along with many of the growing pains and pitfalls that a site can ...

After considerable thought I have decided to volunteer to be considered for Moderator Pro Tempore. This is not a decision that I have undertaken lightly. The Moderator Pro Tempore has duties beyond those of a moderator of a site after beta. I am lacking in some the extra attributes. For the record my real name is James Jenkins. I am naturally an ...

Not an active member of this community. Not a moderator. Not the moderator who deleted your post, so take this with a grain (or frontloader) full of salt. The deletion undermines the right to freedom of expression. This is a complete red herring. Stack Exchange owns and operates these sites, they're private property and your usage and perusal of them is ...

We want to help! You want some help and we want to help you! It may not always seem like it but right from the start of your time on Pets we've been trying to help you to understand the site and get chat working well for you. I love that people are passionate about their pets and I love that we have a place to share that passion. We've had a few bumps ...

To answer this question I'm addressing the issues within chat first. Personally, I have a great deal of sympathy with your situation. I can also see how your issues raise some friction in the chat room. It's difficult finding that balance between wanting you, as an individual, to feel included and welcome and wanting the rest of the chat room members to ...

I think this site has a huge potential, and as such, I'd like to nominate myself. 3 days late to join the party, I already see the kinds of questions around here and what this site is capable of becoming. I'm a moderator on another site and as such I am familiar with Moderator tools Moderator policy Stack Exchange policy Dealing with users from a mod ...

I am the moderator who protected the question for edits from new users, just prior to the answer being deleted. I then asked other mods to review the questions My reasoning was I protected the cat abuse question is collecting answers wishing bad things to the abuser. We probably need to go through and clean up some of the answers. I don't have time at ...

To specifically address your complaints: Make your comment into an answer. You were directed to this meta discussion. In it, Tim Post, a stack exchange employee wrote: We want to keep the number of 'answerments' (what I've grown to call these things) to an absolute minimum, wherever possible. Their presence encourages discussion, and a shortcut to ...

I've been a part of this site from day one, and even moderated it for a short while when it first started. I think the mods here are doing a superb job of keeping the site on-topic and focused, making sure that we create the best pets-related site we can. Sometimes they will speak up - comments sometimes get out of hand and need to be moved to a chat room ...

The deletion undermines the right to freedom of expression. While I understand your feelings (and frankly share them) deletion of a post on a privately owned and operated website in no way undermines any "right to freedom of expression" and moderators are specifically empowered to use their discretion in deleting posts whether or not a specific rule has ...

I'm not sure the site's activity warrants a fifth moderator. Given that we have (I think) European, American and Australian moderators, the coverage is good as well. Don't let that stop you though. Elections are always fun :)

I just cleaned up a bunch of comments on Are there alternatives to electric fences that use GPS instead of buried cables? not sure if it is related to this discussion or not but the question has had 20 (twenty) comments and is setting off system triggers.
