Why doesn't the https://stackexchange.com/about/moderators page have the elected/appointed date for moderators on all sites?
I see that (to name a few):
- Christianity does display the date
- Islam does not
- Stack Overflow does
- WordPress Development does
- Joomla does not
After clicking through a few, there seems to be a correlation between beta sites not displaying the dates and "full member" (graduated/non-beta) sites displaying the dates.
Assuming that site status is the distinction, why bother making this distinction? Why not show the appointed/elected dates for all moderators regardless of the site's status? It seems strange to me.
Edit to pivot my question as a feature request:
Ultimately, my stance is: don't deny the public being able to see the start date of a moderator (regardless of how they got the gig). If I wanted to talk to the most-senior or most-junior moderator in a particular community, then the show details section could swiftly reveal that information.
Unless there is a compelling reason to keep the appointed moderators' start dates secret, please amend the page.
