Now, Meta have a topic to collect questions for moderator election: 2014 Moderator Election Q&A - Question Collection
In the explanation part, there is following statement:
Team will select up to 8 of the top voted questions submitted by the community provided in this thread, to use in addition to the aforementioned 2 guaranteed questions
Each day, new questions are added and since there is a bunch of question there, I read and then upvote if I consider that question must be within the list.
Good questions posted earlier have higher votes as one of them belongs to me, as expected. Then I see a newly posted question which ,IMO, is one of the best questions on tis page and should be asked. But since it was posted lately, it have a lower score and the possibility of reaching top 8 do not seem possible.
I know top 8 is not guaranteed to be asked, but I wish not to up-vote some answers posted earlier since if there is 8 slot for questions (at most), then I wish that question must be in the list instead of some other ones.
Downvoting high scored questions is not logical since they are good questions too and downvoting do not seem fair to me. Just, if I had a chance to re-select, I would vote for the newly posted one, not high-scored one
You can not retract your vote after some time. But I guess that can be changed since, like being able to change your vote during the election phase, people may retract their votes to carry the question they liked to the top 8 through the question selection phase.
