2019 Moderator Election

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!

Hello and good time of the day! I'm working with Tor on all levels - including a source code - for more than 7 years. And I'm glad to be a helping hand in a community as I'm doing it already: people do have right to have their privacy in their own hands! Tor is quite a versatile piece of software, and it's not doing all it can out of the box - so tweaking from the build to configuration is an essential part! Now I have some free time to dedicate it to the Q&A section, and I'd love to help all the people who really need a tip. Let's do it together?

This election is complete.
