While voting, I realize that I am choosing who will be in control of the site, and possibly closing all my questions in the near future, So how should the decision be made ?
Personally, I based on those things:
- the number of helpful flags (because if they know what to flag, they are better on the other side deciding which flags should be deemed helpful, -- and instead of flagging posts for other moderators to review, they should act faster and not flag and wait for a response)
- their reply to some of the questions in here February 2013 Moderator Election - Town Hall Chat Digest
- their text they wrote here https://stackoverflow.com/election/4?tab=election
