Of the various Stack Exchange communities I'm on, there is one that has rather obvious outlier moderation habits. It's a smaller community with only 3 moderators listed. At least one of these moderators comments on nearly every question and answer posted on the site. Answers which would be permitted on other sites are deleted much more aggressively, and in a much greater proportion, than in any other community. This seems contra-indicated by the Stack Exchange Theory of Moderation:
The ideal moderator does as little as possible. But those little actions may be powerful and highly concentrated.
A few (hopefully) related questions:
- Is there any expectation that moderation will be of similar philosophy across different sites?
- If moderation is wildly askew for one site, is there any remedy for that?
- How can we find what the schedule is for moderator elections? (A search failed to find it for this community.)
- Is there any way to trigger a recall or new election for moderators?
