As far as I can tell, we haven't had a moderator election on SA since 2018. Is there a reason for that?
Yes - and it’s simple:
On graduated sites, moderators are elected “for as long as they stay on board”. Provided that
- no moderator steps down
- isn’t removed by SE for inactivity or inappropriate behavior or
- the workload becomes too much for the existing team and new positions are opened up,
there’s no reason to hold an election.
If the circumstances change, we will contact CM, or vice versa, to schedule and hold an election. And the community will then be invited via meta post that there is one (or more) position open.
