I think using the word "nominate" has caused some confusion about the nomination process for the moderator elections, as the term typically conotes an action by a third party. I suggest that instead of "nominate", "self-nominate", or "nominee", the word "volunteer" is substituted as it fits the process better.
What is meta?
- Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
- The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
- Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates
You don't "volunteer" to be elected into an office -- you are nominated or you nominate yourself.
