I think this will be explicitly stated at a later stage in the election cycle, but....

  1. How many moderator positions are open for this round of elections?
  2. Is a moderator stepping down or is another moderator being added to the team?

I'm definitely not looking for any mud slinging about whether a moderator is stepping down or should be stepping down.

    This is answered very clearly on the election post... in the right sidebar... it says there are two positions. – Catija Jan 22 '16 at 18:04

    the mods have said in chat that no one is currently stepping down. this is to augment the current staff. – phantom42 Jan 22 '16 at 18:24

    closely related: I asked in the Election Chat Room how the CMs decided when and how many moderators get elected, see the transcript but the short answer is "when the existing mods feel like they might need help." – KutuluMike Jan 22 '16 at 18:27

    @MikeEdenfield - Keen has been kind enough to confirm the reason why;. Since I 'resigned' the flag-handling time has doubled. – Valorum Jan 24 '16 at 20:26

Catija pointed out in a comment that I clearly overlooked that there are two open positions:

There are presently 10 candidates standing for 2 vacant moderator positions

enter image description here

Given that the addition of one more candidate would allow us to move to a primary (and a further 4 days for the wider community to become involved in the election process) I hope at least one more candidate will choose to step up to the mark.

  • @Richard I don't follow your reasoning. Why do you think it would be a good thing to have a primary? – Rand al'Thor Jan 24 '16 at 13:55
  • @mikeedenfield - It would seem largely academic anyway. No-one else is interested in standing... – Valorum Jan 24 '16 at 15:19
  • @mikeedenfield - Pfft. Who needs that hassle? – Valorum Jan 24 '16 at 15:28
