blog.stackoverflow: Stack Overflow 2010 Moderator Election Begins
Based on the traffic volume, it's crazy that we have so few Stack Overflow community moderators relative to the site's size and traffic. Numbers in parens, below, are the 1 month visitors from Google Analytics:
Joel, Kyle, Tom, Sean
Kara, Denny, Stefan
TheTXIIvo, Stefan, Diago, HTG
The original thinking was that Joel, myself, Jarrod, and Geoff would be pitching in as moderators, and I desperately try to every day, but I don't think that's enough in practice.
So, I think we need to have another Stack Overflow Moderator Election. Let's start by collecting some nominations.
Post an answer if you think you would make a good community moderator. But first, some ground rules:
You may nominate another user who you feel meets the below criteria, but the nomination is invalid until the user him or herself acknowledges the nomination and accepts it by either editing or posting a comment on the nomination to indicate they accept.
You must be a currently registered Stack Overflow user in good standing
You must have at least 7,000 reputation on Stack Overflow.
You exhibit patience and fairness at all times in your questions, answers, and comments.
You lead by example, showing respect for your fellow programmers in everything you write.
You should want the responsibility. This is not an obligation. It's purely voluntary.
Nominations are now closed; thanks for participating, and keep an eye out for the vote!
