On Stack Exchange, we believe the core moderators should come from the community, and be elected by the community itself through popular vote. We hold regular elections to determine who these community moderators will be.

Community moderators are accorded the highest level of privilege on our community, and should themselves be exemplars of positive behavior and leaders within the community.

Our general criteria for moderators is as follows:

  • patient and fair
  • leads by example
  • shows respect for their fellow community members in their actions and words
  • open to some light but firm moderation to keep the community on track and resolve (hopefully) uncommon disputes and exceptions

Every election has three phases:

  1. Nomination
  2. Primary
  3. Election

Please participate in the moderator elections by voting, and perhaps even by nominating yourself to be a community moderator!

Shevliaskovic here.

I play and study music for the past ~6 years and been gigging the past 5.

I'm not the oldest member, but I've been around for a couple of years, and have been quite active (4 answers shy of 200 and 75 questions). I've visited the site more than 700 days. I had a streak of more than a year consecutive, which I lost due to a out of town gig; oh well.

I've been one of the most active reviewers and editors (and I don't fall behind that much in voting). I am quite active on meta and help around the new members; I also have most of the participation and moderation badges

If I am elected to moderate this site, I'll be even more active (especially on the chat) and try to improve this SE's image, not only by voting on posts and editing the ones that need editing, but by promoting the site to the people that might be interested.

Vote for me

I'm the Insidious Doktor Mayhem. And I'm a guitarist! It's been 9 days since my last gig :-)

You may know me. I've been a pro-tem moderator here for 4 years, and with 450 answers and a rep of over 20k I'm pretty active here. I am also a strong believer in voting - with over 4000 votes - and cleaning up the site, with 20 of the 29 moderation badges. I also work hard on trying to promote and develop this site, continually improve the scope and quality of questions and answers, and encourage others to do the same, as you'll see from my meta profile. I liaise with moderators from associated sites to improve our migrations, and also to encourage people to join.

I moderate 7 SE sites - what I bring from that is a fair and balanced approach to moderating. I tend to be a peacekeeper and try very hard to help remove conflict, however when things go too far I will also be strict about following the suspension rules.

In short, I think I do the right thing supporting the community in my pro-tem role, and if elected I plan on continuing to do this.

Hi, I'm Dom.

I've been a member of this site since October 2013 and in that time I've been extremely active in the main site, the meta, and the chat. As of this post I've visited the site 710 consecutive days. On the main site I go though the review queues as needed, vote up good content and down bad, make sure problem content is flagged (I'm currently the only user with the Marshal badge on this site), and I consistently make sure post are tagged correctly. I'll let my meta posts and chat history speak for my activity on both respectively.

If I am elected moderator of this site I will make sure we continue what we do best and share our music knowledge only stepping in when needed which hopefully isn't too often. As I am currently moderator of the Music Fan SE, I feel I will be able to utilize the experience as mod there to benefit this community. It also should be noted as such Music Fan SE is such related site, being mod on both will allow me to facilitate paths for questions to and from each site if needed.

Vote for me or don't it's up to you. Either way I'll still be around as part of the community.

This election is over.
