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!

¡¡¡Web Applications deserves the best, elect Evan Carroll!!!

Hello comrades! I am:

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . --={Evan Carroll}==- . . . . . . . . . . . . .

some of you are wondering why you should elect me? First I know the Stack Exchanges. I've been using Stack Exchange pretty much since it first came out. My record shows a long history of productive contributions, and a desire to stand up for the users. Even Jeff Atwood has given me honorable mention, and recently he has hired a full time staff member to send me T-shirts.

I don't just support Web Applications. I create them. I've been building web apps in PYTHON, javascript, RUBY, perl, PHP and even bad languages like C# (what StackExchange is written on). My understanding of these technologies will maybe help answer some questions others users could not answer.

I believe in transparency. This is a huge benefit to the webapps community because no one running StackExchange embraces this value. Vote for the candidate with principles, and let's face it -- most of the other members of SE are perfectly content with this being nothing more than a perverse Jeffocracy.

You deserve the best. ie ME

I'd like to throw my hat into the ring to be a moderator on the site.

I have extensive moderator experience on the 2.0 sites. I am currently a moderator on Chemistry.SE (1.5 years), and I was a moderator on the Healthcare IT and Libraries sites during their existence. While I recognize that Web Applications has a higher traffic flow than the beta sites, I am up for the challenge of moderating a more mature site.

I actively review and edit on multiple sites, and I am no stranger to these duties on WebApps. I have cast over 800 flags (6000+ network-wide) and have edited over 100 posts (5000+ network-wide) on the site. I care about keeping the community spam-free and on-topic, and I would continue in this mission if elected.

In summary, I have both the experience and the resolve to help the site continue to operate cleanly and efficiently, and I would like to pick up a bigger broom and serve this community as a moderator.

I am not an user with 10k reputation. I am quite to new to SE Web Applications, but I believe quality is much more important than quantity and that's what I've been doing on SE.

I spent more than 50% time in marking and reporting irrelevant answers and spams posts, that's what I like to do when there are no new questions on Web Applications. If the election is done on the basis of how much you know about Web Applications then I might tell you currently I don't have knowledge like a pro, I just try to help people with what I know and also try to keep the site clean with valuable information.

Professional and by passion I am a web developer and I use web applications very often and that's the reason I am here. I would be glad if I get a chance to contribute in moderating such a helpful web site, it would be a honor for me.

Thanks and if you like to see me as a moderator please vote me.

I think that I would make a decent moderator of Web Applications for a couple of reasons. I have been an active contributor of Web Applications and have 2400 reputation. I am currently a Web Developer for a University and heavily believe in using web applications to complete tasks. I want everyone to understand and use web applications with ease.

I make a living from working on and creating web applications, and I really believe in them as a whole. I do whatever I can both in real life and online to help people with problems they have online. Whether it be fixing their Facebook privacy or uploading a YouTube video, I enjoy helping as many people as I can.

I highly build my moral standards on the opinions of others. I like to make decisions when the place is right, however I also appreciate feedback from the users when making decisions, as the users are what run the site, and make it grow and work.

Ultimately I just want to help out as much as possible, and dipping my foot into the moderation pool lets me be able to chip in a little more than normal.

Hi guys, I am a seasoned member of StackExchange. Though I have been underground for sometime, now I have some spare time and I think I can dedicate it in moderating this site. My day job is a web developer where I get chance to work with a myriad of technologies.

I hope my experience will help me add value to this site

This election is over.
