I have profiles on several Stack Exchange sites, but some of them I hardly ever visit, have very low rep (over the basic 100), and have not answered or asked anything for months (if not a year). Still, I'm prompted to participate in the moderator elections for them.
Is that really a good idea? I mean, shouldn't there be some kind of interest-in-the-site filter? Or, alternatively, should I not be able to define a minimum level of engagement at which I feel confident to participate in elections?
Important note: There could be a different threshold for being allowed to participate and being actively encouraged to participate. Perhaps it's the latter that's more appropriate to limit.
