Summary: DevOps Stack Exchange will begin the nomination stage for a special election on September 23 to bring in two more moderators.

For full details of the process, see the announcement on Meta Stack Exchange. The timeline:

  • Starting on September 23, users can nominate themselves. Users can also ask questions on meta for potential moderators to answer. (Use the and tags.)

  • On September 30, if there are three or more candidates, we'll run an election. If not, I'll simply appoint the candidates. (There's a small chance we'll need to remove a nomination, but I doubt that will come up.)

  • If there is an election, I'll announce the results on meta on October 8.

(Note for current moderators: there's no need to nominate yourself even though you'll likely get an email saying you should. The system assumes the first election is a graduation election, which would mean moderators would need to be re-elected. This isn't that sort of election.)

If you have any questions about the process, please stick them in an answer here.

  • With Tensibai resigning should we do a more complete election?
