A recent comment asked "I wonder what happened to EndangeredMassa"?

So, I followed the breadcrumbs, and found someone with a moderator diamond and 188 rep points. So now I'm confused.

Moderators are nominated and voted on by the community.

Either through the blog or on Meta itself.

All moderators of SO, SF and SU are also Meta mods.

Meta only mods Joel Coehoorn and EndangeredMassa were transplanted from UserVoice.

Meta only mods Kyle Cronin and Tom Ritter were subsumed, brought in, after having created sites of their own that went out of the way to provide SOFU support/discussion.

First you need an epic norse god as the father Techno Viking

Then a popular internet figurehead as the mother boxxy

Then you incubate for 9 months, and out comes a moderator!
