Summary: Board & Card Games Stack Exchange will begin the nomination stage for a moderator election on 18 October 2021, as your “graduation” election as a result of having lost your beta label a while back).

The timeline:

  • On October 11th, I'll post a question collection post on Meta, so that the community can post questions they'd like to see the candidates answer.

  • Starting on October 18th, users can nominate themselves. The top questions collected on the previous week will be compiled into a questionnaire on the election page, so that potential moderators can answer them.

  • The existing moderator team will need to run in the election if they wish to keep their positions.

  • On October 25th, if there are 4 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 4 candidates, I'll simply appoint the candidates who've nominated (and aren't already pro-tem mods) and we'll default to considering this a "pro-tem election" just to try to keep the total number of moderators on the site at 3 (for full details of the process, see the announcement on Meta Stack Exchange). (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 November 2nd (or November 9th, if we need to extend the nomination period).

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

    Yay! I've been waiting for this for years, maybe a decade :)
