On Stack Exchange, we believe the core moderators should come from the community, and be elected by the community itself through popular vote. We hold regular elections to determine who these community moderators will be.

Community moderators are accorded the highest level of privilege on our community, and should themselves be exemplars of positive behavior and leaders within the community.

Our general criteria for moderators is as follows:

  • patient and fair
  • leads by example
  • shows respect for their fellow community members in their actions and words
  • open to some light but firm moderation to keep the community on track and resolve (hopefully) uncommon disputes and exceptions

Every election has three phases:

  1. Nomination
  2. Primary
  3. Election

Please participate in the moderator elections by voting, and perhaps even by nominating yourself to be a community moderator!

I present myself because there's a need in three active moderators and at the moment only two are active. Unlike the 2016 election, there are no candidates, and today is the day of closure. I'd be happy if one of the more experienced members take this role, a few of which participated in: [the interest check(2018 Potential Moderator Election Community Interest Check)

In case the community accepts me I will be happy to take the roll.. (borrowing from @dan nomination style for 2016):

Why me

I promise honesty.

I am inquisitive passionate about Emacs, appreciate good design and I like to contribute. I understand fairness, kindness, tolerance. I understand the value of SE Emacs. I enjoy it daily. I want to learn and so I am truly interested in members' questions and answers.

Why not me (to improve..)

I am not experienced. I have been using Emacs for just one year. I hardly participated in meta or in chat-rooms.


I will be happy to serve as a moderator. And will accept criticism from members and from fellow moderators for the purpose of doing a good job. my answers to the questionnaire

This election is over.
