As many are aware of by now, a whole bunch of moderators are no longer serving in that capacity.
Between all those individuals there are (as of now) about 50 moderator positions that became unfilled without much prior notice, and at least one site ended up losing the majority of its moderators.
Everything to do with this incident and the surrounding controversies aside, is there any plan for how the network will deal with all of these sudden moderator vacancies?
- Will sites simply be expected to be moderated with fewer moderators?
- Will there be a whole series of elections all at the same time?
- Will new moderators be appointed directly?
- Will Stack Exchange employees be stepping in to handle some moderator duties?
- Something else?
