Summary: Amateur Radio Stack Exchange will begin the nomination stage for a special election on August 9 to bring in two more moderators.

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

  • Starting on August 9, users can nominate themselves. Users can also ask questions on meta for potential moderators to answer. (Use the and tags.)

  • On August 16, if there are three or more candidates, we'll run an election. If not, I'll extend the nomination period for a week. If, at the end of that extension period there are still less than three candidates, 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 August 24 (or August 31, if we need to extend the nomination period).

(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.

  • $\begingroup$ You have no idea how happy you've made me. :-) I edited the title to make sure everyone understands that this is about a moderator election. $\endgroup$ – Mike Waters Jun 27 at 21:59
  • $\begingroup$ I just discovered by looking at the edits to this question that ham.SE has a Twitter account, @StackHam. I had no idea! It tweets about ham.SE questions, presumably automatically. There have been 1,922 tweets, and that user allegedly has 23 followers. $\endgroup$ – rclocher3 Jun 29 at 15:53
