Moderator elections are here. I voted.
However, I find the voting page very biased. It's based on a feed, so if there's 30 people, I won't time nor the memory to read everyone's full description of why I should vote for them.
I doubt most users take the time to read each and every single candidates message.
A small synopsis/message that is written by the user and a different design would DEFINITELY make a huge difference in the way these elections took place and how effective they ultimately are.
Required Meta Description of why we should vote for a moderator. 140 characters.
Different Design Tile view design where the candidates go across the screen (10 at a time for example) completely randomly (based on the refresh) and NOT based on the time they applied for the election.
Expand Details: "Click to Read More" sign or 3 sentences of the candidates "message" to their potential constituency/voters.
Hide the # of votes until the user voted. This is so biased. Heard Mentalty: feeling more secure voting for someone who has 50+ votes than with someone who has 30 even if they are much stronger than the other candidate. Pure herd mentality.
This would keep the election less biased and surely more effective giving us better moderators on stack exchange!
