And now for the last question from The 7 Essential Meta Questions of Every Beta, who should our Pro Tempore moderators be?
The issue of holding fair elections is largely technical. The long-term solution will likely come from us. Still, bring up these issues in meta. There is a lot of room for innovation. Discussing the criteria of a great moderator is important and picking out potential candidates is a great way to introduce outstanding contributors to your community. And we are completely open to appointing temporary Moderators when someone’s contribution makes them a standout choice for your community’s human exception handler.
You can nominate yourself here or you can nominate another user that you think will be a good moderator.
The final decision on who becomes pro tempore moderator lies with the SE team, until we get out of beta and get our real moderator elections.
