The 2012 Community Moderator Election is now underway!

Community moderator elections have three phases:

  1. Nomination phase
  2. Primary phase
  3. Election phase

Most elections take between two and three weeks, but this depends on how many candidates there are.

Please visit the official election page at


for more detail, and to participate!

It only lists 1 position - are they just adding a mod, or are we getting reduced down to one mod?

    Elections are always for new moderators, not replacements. (Unless an existing moderator retires or is retired...)

  • @FuzzyChef, there are three. Hobodave, Aaronut, and me. Anyone else with a diamond is a Stack Exchange employee.
