What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 129 Stack Exchange communities.

It is currently community moderator election at Ask Ubuntu. I just got the Ask Ubuntu Weekly Newsletter and it does not mention the election. An election is a very important event for a Stack Exchange site. Therefore I would like to suggest that whenever a Stack Exchange site has an election that site's newsletter will mention the election.

Since elections happens rarely on a site and it a very important event I think that it should be included in its own box directly after the first heading of the newsletter. It could read something like

[Site name] [year] community moderator election

The community moderator election of [Site name] is currently in the primary/election phase. Please cast your vote!

for the primary and election phases. And something like

[Site name] [year] community moderator election

The community moderator election of [Site name] is currently in the nomination phase. Take your chance to review the nominees!

for the nomination phase.

You know what might spur this along to possibly being [status-planned]? If you could give a little idea of what the blurb for an election warning should look like. ♪ –  Grace Note Feb 7 '12 at 19:22
    
@GraceNote done. Obviously it can be improved so anyone who has ideas how to, please contribute! –  N.N. Feb 7 '12 at 19:39

Current community moderator elections now get top billing in the newsletter!

For example, here's the top of the current Mathematics newsletter:
