I noticed Tor is now in public beta, then i went to check their moderators to see those who were chosen as Pro-tem moderators.

I was suprised to meet it with no names. Is it all sites that go into public beta that will have Pro-tem moderators?

  • For the initial period the stack exchange team act as moderators, then Pro tem moderators are chosen – Richard Tingle Oct 16 '13 at 9:03
  • @RichardTingle I thought stack exchange team act as moderators in private beta then elect pro-tem in public beta – Walker Oct 16 '13 at 9:04

    Read Robert's blog on this. It explains the entire process since your are interested. In there it mentions that the pro-tem mods are appointed about a week into public beta – psubsee2003 Oct 16 '13 at 9:06

As per this answer regarding the process of launching a new site pro-tem moderators are chosen early in the life of the public beta

Public Beta

Appointing Pro Tem Moderators — A few weeks after launch, we start the search for “pro tem moderators” who will watch over the site prior to the general elections (when the site graduates). This process may take awhile depending on how clearly candidates emerge from the early community, and how amenable they are to taking on that role. We try to appoint three candidates in the first round, but we may start with fewer and appoint the rest as soon as we can if the process drags on too long.

As such there will be a short time in public beta during which the stack exchange team are still acting as moderators

  • Oh ok. Thanks!!! – Walker Oct 16 '13 at 9:07
